Firstly, thanks everyone for all your comments, suggestions, and feedback. It’s pretty awesome to see everyone enthusiastic about the project. I’ve been reading every single comment and it’s really wonderful to see you all thinking and contributing ideas. Thanks, everyone <3
There are going to be posts here throughout this month as we finalize the plans, and hopefully launch the IndieGogo at the end of this month. If you like what we have planned, you can help by telling your friends and using the share buttons; every person aware of Carnal Souls helps.
Today I’ll talk about sex and how the sex scenes in Carnal Souls will aim to be rich and most of all interactive. LET’S DO IT.
Very nice, how much?
I’ll be using courtesans as today’s example. Courtesans both male and female will be available to the player almost from the start of the game (provided they can pay), which also means they should offer something for everyone, so for development purposes they’re our benchmark.
Courtesans of different species will be available in most of the main cities, ready to pleasure you during a break from your adventuring and allow you to blow off some steam if the local flora and fauna have got you all worked up. (Though obviously masturbation is always an option as well. And fucking the flora and fauna too).
Let’s skip the visit to the brothel and choosing your courtesan and go right to the good bit.
Dat branching scene structure tho
We’re aiming to treat sex scenes much like branching dialogue, and we can do this mostly due to our parser/dictator system (which really deserves a post of its own). What this means is you’ll be able to take part in sex rather than simply reading a scene.
The examples here are pretty rough and only used to show the concept. So lets say you choose a male courtesan and take him upstairs. (Again, can be male or female). Your first options are:
Help him disrobe:
Sensually remove the whore’s skimpy clothing and guide him to the bed.
Tell him to undress:
Tell the whore to disrobe nice and slow, then get on the bed.
Get those clothes off:
Push him onto the bed and tear those clothes off him. (You may have to pay to replace them after).
All three choices would be fairly short. I’m only showing three choices here but there will likely be more. Next comes foreplay:
Kiss and suck him:
Leave a trail of kisses down the whore’s body, then take him into your mouth.
Tell him to suck/lick you:
Tell the whore to put his mouth to good use.
(Dick only) Flip him over and rim him:
Get that ass up and get it ready for action.
The last one’s a good example of an option that would be expanded. For instance, you could be a female with a clit big enough to fuck him with, or maybe even a female with a strap-on. Secondly maybe you want to lube him up, but not with your tongue. Instead of writing whole new scenes, we can simply change or add in new choices. Next:
Ride his dick:
Straddle the whore and give him a thorough ride.
Spread your legs:
Lie back and tell him to give you all he’s got.
(Dick only) Tell him to ride you:
Order him to get on you and ride your dick.
(Dick only) Pound him:
Grab those cheeks and use his ass.
The dictator can be used to create smooth transitions between steps in the scene. These options would be the meat of the scene and probably output the most text out of all the options.
The next step would be the finish, letting you decide how to cum, whether to pull out or not, give him a facial, make him drink it, etc. The climax would be fairly short in comparison, unless your orgasm is so epic and massive that it demands further description (like bloating his belly with it or even flooding the room). I haven’t provided the ‘cum’ options here purely because there are a lot, and this is a wall of text as it is.
10/10 would bang again
The goal is to make sex in Carnal Souls replayable and interesting, using a modular system that allows for expansion rather than committing to writing tons of different full scenes. This also makes sex more interactive, as you can take part and decide how it plays out.
And of course, this will all be easily controlled with one hand using keys. There’s also an autoscroll option too with variable speed, so you don’t even have to scroll down the text to read it. So you can use your other hand for things, like giving a rad thumbs up.
Until next time!
