FS News - April 2023


 Hi everyone, this is Wahn again with the Flexible Survival News for April 2023.



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, as well as character artwork or even added content of your choice every 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.


Altus: While exploring the museum, you may encounter a hunting party taunting their prey, a gryphon with a rather unique appearance. Should you save him, he will join you at the library. Though he is grateful for you rescuing him, his pride may cause some issues should you wish to be the dominant partner during sex. Currently only player-submissive scenes are available, with player-dominant scenes soon to come. [Prometheus]
Bastet: The sexy lioness's content has been expanded, adding more options to get to know her better. Among those is a talk option to learn about her history, and an option to take her out to the food court to grab a bite to eat. Each of these contains choices in how you want to react to what she says/does, which will gain you approval or ire from Bastet. [Wahn]
Belliandra: The Arena Master has her first potential pupil, Blanche! As long as Blanche is accompanying you (and enought ime has passed between training sessions), the cat woman can teach her how to better fight and defend herself (raising her level). More people will be able to make use of this service over time. (Requires access to Station 69.) [Prometheus]
Karen: Karen has gained some neat artwork to show off her body, pink collar and all. [Wahn]
Nermine: There's new content for after you obtain a bondage harness for Nermine in the jackalman quest path. As part of her sex menu, you can now ask her if she has any special "fun" gear and items, which will lead you both to a second backroom of the store. There, Nermine can be tied up on a St. Andrew's Cross and teased in bondage. So far, there's one scene option of worshiping her breasts, with more to come in the future. [Wahn]
Sascha: Sascha's been getting up to some exciting things while you've been away from him. Why don't you keep him company while the heat dies down? (Event changes based on what you did with him in Wild Kitty. Don't worry, you'll be able to explore other options later!) [Voidsnaps]
Segis: If the dragon android has been augmented with the lactation function, it is now possible to drink from his chest. Doing so will sate your thirst and hunger somewhat, especially if the Extra Milky add-on is installed. [Gherod]
Snapjaw: The massive sharkman in Snapjaw Beach Camp now has a few walk-in events, the second leading into unlocking a new sex scene where you can worship his body. [Gherod]
Sylvia: The college campus's best border collie has posed for some nice and sexy pictures for you to enjoy. [Wahn]
Vincent: The content with vincent the fox has been expanded, including adding a "Trust" system to him, which tracks how much the wary guy will open up to you. This depends on how you treat him, so if you want trust, don't be an asshole. Further additions are a talk option to introduce Vincent to everyone else in the library, and the option of offering him bottled orc cum to drink. There's also a new option in his sex menu, which has you giving him a blowjob. [Wahn]
Ziix and Zant: Two wasp brothers added along with their hive! Current options include becoming king (work in progress. Will later involve pregnancy.) exiling Ziix (work in progress) and spending time with the waspy hunks! Find the new navpoint by hunting for Draconic Ruckus in the Capitol District! [Voidsnaps]

Bugfixes & Balance Patches

Ares: In the scenes for taking Ares for a walk, he should now properly serve as a combat companion.
Fang: Male Alpha Fang will no longer have three testicles when imported. Hopefully this should not affect semen production.
Tobias: Tobias was missing a huge chunk of writing! Sorry for the inconvenience, he should no longer timeskip...

Upcoming/In the Works

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

Carl: As part of the overall gritty reboot of the soldier squad, Carl will get some updated and more timely scenes soon. [Wahn]
Fang: The ability to make Alpha Fang permanently hyper-fied after he eats the vials. Will require access to Dr. Matt. (Nearly complete. Variations on some scenes still required.) [Prometheus]
J'Reth: Find out more about J'Reth's KnK character as well as more about the rest of the party. [Prometheus]
Lazaros: The sunbathing gator wants to show you his home. It's not much, but he's a great host. [Voidsnaps]
Lux & Umbra: Development of their sex scenes [Prometheus]
Nermine: More Nermine bondage fun soon to come, filling out her menu for the back room. [Wahn]
Sascha: Haunted Mansion exploration. Wonder what's causing that  moaning noise at night. [Voidsnaps]
Satyr Frat - Angelo: The latin lover of the satyr frat will get some attention soon, introducing him to a more man-to-man way of having fun, with a gradual satyr transformation thrown in too. [Wahn]
Squire: The poor thing's lost his knight. Want to help him get revenge? [Voidsnaps]
