FS News - June 2022


Hi everyone, this is Wahn again with the Flexible Survival News for June 2022.



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.



As a security in case anything might happen to the FS Patreon account, we now also have a Subscribestar account. If you want to support further development of Flexible Survival, why not become a subscriber there.

Engine Work

Due to the fact that FS recently overtaxed the Inform engine once more, until we thankfully got a fix from the nice developers over there, the decision has been made to port FS to a new platform. Efforts have been started to put together a new version in the more timely engine Godot. For the foreseeable future, FS will still run in Inform and additional updates are coming out for that, but we've got people working on something new and shiny at the same time.


Biolizardman Brute: These huge and tall lizardmen seem to belong to a tribe in Avalon, and they are now roaming the deepest parts of the forest. With the shade of the forest's trees, their scales glow mesmerizingly. For now, they can be encountered and fought, with one scene for each outcome.
Cambion Male: An eerie individual wearing dark colors and a crimson gaze can now be found in the streets of Red Light District. Not a human, neither a demon, perhaps something in between? Watch out for his sadistic and domineering demeanor.
Customisable Dragon NPC: In a not at all suspicious manner, a stranger gifts you with a dragon egg. You will be able to influence its appearance including sex, form, and colouration before it hatches. Prerequisite of being at least Level 30.
Damien (Escort): A watersports ending variant has been added to his dominant anal scene for those who have this setting enabled.
Elstan: The cocky werewolf in the lair of the lupines can now be admired with the eyes and worshipped after one of his workout sessions. At a higher loyalty score, a different outcome on his oral scene may happen, leading to a new scene. Dialogue variants in both his talk and sex options were added as Elstan's loyalty increases.
J'Reth: You can now reunite J'Reth with his friends for the first time, though of course he'll have to return home to the mall again afterwards.
Mogdraz: A new sex scene has been added to his menu, in which you can offer yourself to worship the Demon Lord's body. Chances are you are getting your face stuck in between his hairy pecs, but it is, nonetheless, an activity enjoyed by the devil.
New Artwork - Gorilla: The football gorillas have gotten their new uniforms in and want to show off how they look in them, with and without a hard cock.
New Artwork - Jennifer: The leader of the wolfman cheer squad has posed for some pictures, with an without a uniform on - and she even came back a few days later, when she was pregnant for another few pics. You can check her out in the wolfman lair now.
New Artwork - Reptaur: The reptaurs have gotten shiny new artwork, baring all their scales for those they run into.
New Artwork - Satyr: The satyrs of the museum have gotten some new artwork to their name, showing off their half human half goat bodies.
New Artwork - Sgt. Marks: The corrupt tiger cop has gotten some new artwork, with him now being able to flash some cool sunglasses at you.
New Artwork - Sierrasaur: The colossal sierrarsaurs have been captured on tape, allowing us to add some racy pictures of them to the game.
Satyr Frat 1 - Introduction Event: After getting the satyrs into the PAN frat, return to the building during the day to get an introduction event in which you meet Richard again, with him taking you through the building to meet most of the brothers.
Satyr Frat 2 - Frat Brothers: A group npc has been set up in the central area on the second floor, representing a variable group of the fraternity members. There are different talk options for during the day and at night.
Satyr Frat 3 - River: Available during the daytime in the menu for the frat brothers npc, River is an interesting guy to get to know, and you can learn about the current things going on with the frat from him (missing leadership).
Satyr Frat 4 - Angelo: Available during nights in the talk menu of the frat brothers npc, Angelo is a charming guy, always ready to boast about his latest conquest. You can engage him on that level, and after you prove that you've got the balls to hang around, get an invitation to watch a video with him in his room, with some fun options during that. (Note: You might want to check what gender your char currently is, because once Angelo sees you as a 'woman', he doesn't change his mind later on...)
Satyr Frat 5 - Richard: The friendly frat guy has been reworked, polishing up his old scenes and giving him a proper room in the frat house (3rd floor, south and east - he'll be there during the day). You can now learn a bit more about his background (look at the objects in the room first), and even convince him to make a move for interim frat leadership.
Satyr Frat 6 - Sylvanus: The fraternity's goat mascot is now a free-roaming npc that you can find in the garden during the day, while he is locked away in his stable during the night. After Richard becomes interim frat president, there'll be an interesting "incident" regarding Sylvanus during one of the following party nights (walk out into the garden). The resulting anthro goat might just be open for some friendly relations during the nightly party-time after that...
Segis: A new dialogue option has been added regarding his past actions. Also, trying to make an advance on him will trigger a questline to upgrade Segis with relevant additions, which also leads to some lore on him. Currently, it is possible to give him proper male equipment, and sex scenes are planned for future releases.
Stubbornly Alive Feat: This feat can keep the player from reaching a bad end upon being vored and digested if they so wish. In the future, some creatures will acknowledge this, opening up special scenes with those who are able to vore the player. It should support most vore bad ends that do not have the Bound State mechanic. It will also not work in the Void Realm and similar places. Currently supported: Shrinking Shroom digestion scenes; Christopher's CV Bad End;
Wyvern Patriarch: Willingly feeding yourself to the wyvern's gonads can now be a rather productive thing to do, given that doing it repeatedly may award the most persistent with the "Stubbornly Alive" feat. Your body seems to be able to reshape itself into its immediate previous form after suffering any manner of digestion, if you so wish. While this means you may now choose to be vored for fun and safely, it does not restore your soul. In the unknown void and similar hells, your whole existence is devoured... so, beware.

Bugfixes & Balance Patches

Auto-Clear: Hopefully conversations with Genevieve, Gwen, Jimmy, Meredith, Otto, Paula, Sylvia, and Vanessa should no longer be skipped for those who have 'Waits' disabled.
Fang: Fixed an errant pronoun error.
Gender Pronouns: After being accidentally set to "it" instead of "they", the neutral gender option for the pronouns has been fixed now.
Jett: Fixed a typo on his description text.
J'Reth: Those who had sex with J'Reth before fetching his backpack should now be able to return the backpack properly.
Snakes: The snakes in the plains should now be able to actually slither into people with the "Touched by Madness" feat and be unbirthed.

Upcoming/In the Works

These are projects and commissions that our writers are committed to, something for you to look forward for the future.

Alexandra ('Good'): Continuation of her storyline bring the two of you into direct conflict with the Overmind in a five-floor 'dungeon' in similar style to the Bouncy Castle, though with a different theme. [Prometheus]
Blanche & Family: Blanche's family is quick to expand, each with their own way of helping each other in addition to the scavenging that they all take part in. You may have already met Sturm, but her many other children are much more enthusiastic to meet the one who rescued their mother. Also, further development of a certain person from her past... [Prometheus & Lost Directions]
Carl Rework: After the soldier squad has been completed in its more detailed and darker, Carl will be updated to gain more depth and fit the content before. [Wahn]
Soldier Squad Rewrite Completion: The gritty reboot for the soldier squad will continue, bringing further developments in the tale of Allen's betrayal of his subordinates. [Wahn]
