More New Content

Here's the skinny on the recent updates we've been seeing to the game.  The veteran devs are hard at work with the new guys and we've managed to get some more stuff of theirs ready to go.

Stripes:
- Male Christy (Aug 11/16): In a sizable update that almsot done, giving Christy an innocent treat to cheer her up leads to a startling transformation.  TG and some sexy fun to be had w/more on the way.  I even put a CV scene in there to parallel the UB.
- Food Court (Aug 11): While working on male Christy, I gave the food court a bit more 'character'.   Thanks also go to Blue Bishop for helping with the restaurant names.

Wahn:
- Brutus + David (Aug 6/11): David would like is friend Brutus to experience some more of the human world. You can choose to take them on a trip to the beach (with many options there), or even visit Camp Bravo together.
- Gorillas (Aug 15): Gorilla Football players now roam the campus, eager to get it on with any "fan" they meet along the way.
- Mul (Aug 12): The chance to run into this hunk of an orc (while moving east in the dark hallway) has been increased to 1 in 3 (from 1 in 6).

Blue Bishop:
- Bouncy Castle (Aug 8): The struggles against the dolphin suits for the Bouncy Castle have been adjusted to work with bound state style mechanics.

Xenophiliac:
- Hermaid (Aug 8): Some updates and tweaks to this critter.
- Foul Scuttler (Aug 18): A new horror scurrying around the sealed area under Trevor Labs.- Pretty Kitty (Aug 18): There's a new shop at the mall where you can buy some fashionable clothes and collars.  The feline owner is only interested in liaisons with other (pure) females.

Update Notification

We're a little overdue (as usual) for an announcement on the new content added to the game.  There's a pretty good batch of new stuff for you all to enjoy that's come out, including our first wave of content from new people trying their hands at making content for the game with at least one more partially completed on its way.  Thanks for the great response and we hope to see more to come.

Stripes:
- Cock Vore (July 18): A trio critters have gained cock vore scenes - the male Bovine, the Mammoth and the Cock Cannon.  All there have slightly different triggering mechanics, size limitations or may require a few losses before they appear, but are all regulated by the 'More/Less Vore' setting.
- G-Shep Squad (July 24): A squad of police-minded German Shepherds are now running around the RLD, righting wrongs in there own, particularly kinky and canine way.  Three events with this Canine Patrol before gaining access to their location.
- Alexandra (Aug 3): The doberwoman cop would like your help with another task, further investigation of those Automatons, leading to a kinky new prisoner.
- Zigor (July 18): A separate lead-in has been added for repetition of the finale offer.
- Yolanda (July 17): There's now a collection of kinky toys and scenes to enjoy while bound and suspended from Yolanda's ceiling.

Wahn:
- Mul (July 18): A scene for him now riding the player's cock with several of variations within it.
- Rane (July 18): A batch of scene touch-ups and adjustements.

Blue Bishop:
- Bound States (July 23): That big update to his bound states mechanics and systems he'd announced in this posting.
- Sandra (Aug 3): This classic NPC's received a major overhaul by Blue Bishop, updating many of the old flaws and mechanics as well as providing new scenes and a simple quest for her.

Others:
- Monkey (Aug 4): The great Monkey King is running around the Museum, looking to make a few loyal and lustful subjects for himself.  Created by Kln.
- Hermaid (Aug 4): This aquatic herm can be found in the waters along the shore of the Warehouse District.  Created by Xenophiliac.

Help Wanted - Join the FS team!

Hi everyone, this is Wahn again. I wanted to spread the word that we are always open for new writers to join in and contribute to Flexible Survival. All you really need is some creativity, the ability to write legible sentences and openness to learn pretty basic coding (we can help with that). Please note that your contributions do not necessarily need to be only sexual in nature, there is lots of room for quests, events and NPCs that give the game world some extra depth. Flexible Survival is flexible and open to a myriad of possibilities which you can help add to and expand upon, if you've got the ideas and the inclination to help us out. Given the continued growth in interest, we could use the help of some dedicated fans in satisfying all our eager players. So should you just want to make a personal project or two for the game or would like to join our oddball team of writers in making loads of kinky fun, we look forward to hearing from you.

Once you have proven yourself in the eyes of the players and found people who'd like to see more of your work, you are of course also welcome to take part of the "Writer For Hire" program - with Stripes and myself being pretty fully booked these days, we could really use more people with whom interested parties can inquire for commissions. So join us, show your skills and potentially earn some cash while doing something you enjoy.

Edit: Anyone interested, please make a forum account and we can make contact there. I've made a "New Writer Check-In" post here.

Monthly Tally

The overall throughput of things remains comfortably high as it has been for...4 months?

We have 6 hours due to direct commission, 2 due to hitting the stretch goal for the multiplayer, and 4 more from the ad banner! This all adds up to 12 bonus hours, not bad at all!

I'm going to take a different tact with my portion of bonus hours(the 2 and 4). Every contribution this month for paid time gets increased by 25%, that is, for every 4 hours you put in, I'll put in one towards your commission. If they aren't spent by the end of the month, they'll be made available for next month's bonus hours.

Like? Hate? Let me know! If folks don't like this idea, I'll assign it like normal.

Bonus Hours Poll

Just a quicky post to point out that I've put up Wahn's newest poll for his share of the bonus hours (about 4 - 5 hours).  There's a lot of interesting options to choose from.  You can find it here in the forums.  Blue Bishop's hard at work completing the remaining time doing some updates and additions to Sandra.

Poll Results

What, already? Yep, apparently SurveyMonkey has a limit of 100 answers unless you want to pay up for the service, who knew?!(not me, obviously).

The results: Many people do not feel updates have increased in speed. Many people do feel updates have become larger. Roughly 60% of people are not bothered by the new system, 40% are. Over 50% of voters believe Flexible Survival updates more often than other games of its type, and only 17% believe it is slower.

Most comments were along the lines of understanding why the sub system exists, or complaining about technical issues(We can't answer your problems in the poll! Head on over to the forum!).

There were a few requests about having a separate page, but that would require a more stratified free and not-free version, instead of the rolling timer we have going right now. Which reminds me, we hit some 100 levels, so let's kick things forward a few days.

Thanks for voting!

Poll!

It's one of them fancy customer satisfaction measuring polls!

Please take a moment and fill it out when you get a chance. We'd appreciate it!

Thanks,
David
