FS News - June 2018

Hi everyone, this is Wahn again with the Flexible Survival News for June 2018.



For those who want to support further development of Flexible Survival, we do have a Patreon set up. Reward options include voting on polls for choosing content additions every week, as well as character artwork or even a private project each month.


Alexandra: Bad Alexandra has been given a detailed birthing scene, allowing you to be right there when the miracle of life happens.
Bear: Added additional scene variations for submission and general writing cleanup
Branson & Partner Offices: After the quest helping out Mr. Branson, you will now have access to the building's offices, where four lovely office girls are living. So far there is only an introduction event, but there will be more to come in the future...
Comprehensive Writing Cleanup: Transitioned most writing to American English and fixed many typos
Equinoid Warrior: Fixed an inaccessible scene with Liliana and added another short variation
New Video Tape: A new video tape is out in the city for you to find, detailing an orc attack on a fitness studio.
Red Light District: The red light district has been rearranged a bit, connecting multiple rooms like the chapel and the porn store. To match this, the events leading you encounter Lisa the mouse taur have also been reworked.
Restoring: Polished restoring from the main menu. The game now returns you to the menu instead of starting when you enter 'no', and you no longer see the bunker description before being placed in the right room.
Serenity: Your hungry naga friend has a new variation dialogue that might play when going into her bound state.
Sewer Gator: The Gator is now a proper npc when you visit her den, allowing you to stay in her home without automatically leaving. Her victory facesitting scene is also viewable from her den.
Skarnoth: The sexy demon prince's artwork has been added to the game, giving you some eye candy.
Sleey Times: As a new element of the survival game in FS, sleep now has become important for your character. Well-rested, you've got a bonus to your stats, while prolonged sleepnessness brings with it some discomfort. (No worries, we got a new cheat in Trixie's menu to turn the need for sleep off too)
Sylvia: Should you be friendly enough with Angie, the collie may be interested in getting a biological sample.
Twelve Labours: When visiting the museum, players of at least level 30 may be approached by Zeus to fight the Nemean Lion.
Zoo Events: New zoo events have been added, detailing the things going on there since the nanite outbreak.

Behind the Scenes

In the last month, there's been quite a bit of construction going on behind the scenes, solving many old problems and making future expansions easier. So that the work of our tireless coders isn't forgotten, here are their exploits:

Better Documentation: Added a contributing file to the GitHub repository with instructions for aspiring writers/coders.
Comprehensive Code Cleanup: Cleaned up and fixed many internal functions to truncate overall text length.
Comprehensive Writing Cleanup: Transitioned most writing to American English and fixed many typos.
Linter: Added a linter backend to FS, helping us catch and resolve common errors in Atom before pushing changes.
Sync Script: Atom and Inform data can now be synchronized, eliminating the need to copy over files when changes are made.

Recruitment Drive

First of all - we do have a whole bunch of new writers, coders and editors - eager to craft new content for FS. My thanks to all of them and the awesome new content they have created.

Of course, this does not mean that the recruitment drive is over.

Writer for Hire / Commissions


Thanks to our new and greatly increased number of writers, we are even more ready than before to fulfill any wishes for new content specific to your desires. If you are interested in commissioning us, please do contact me on the FS Discord - then we can find the right writer for your project. The going rate for hired writing is 15$/hour.


Here an example of some new FS game art, a picture of Skarnoth, drawn by the talented Kien-Biu. The new graphics windows allows us to show images like this with far higher resolution in the game.
