FS News - September 2023

Hi everyone, this is Wahn again with the Flexible Survival News for what was written/added during September 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.


Carl: Continuing with the gritty reboot of the soldier squad, Carl's intro into the library has been reworked, with more content between him and yourself instead of just dropping off the npc straight away. If you already have Carl in your import, you can talk to him to replay the arrival in the library and the choice to be made there. [Wahn]
Colleen: Colleen can now be kept as human when you stay with her to treat her wounds as part of the "Strike From the Deep" event as long as there is enough anti-nanite spray left. (No sexual content yet.) [Prometheus]
Colleen: Sane Husky Colleen may now be interested in a little harmless sexual fun. All you have to do is ask. [Prometheus]
Leon: Expanded and reworked. A vast slew of typos have been fixed, and 5 and a half new scenes have been added, including a new and improved bad end!
Stallionboi: The girly horse lads have new oral and CV loss scenes. [Fuxi]
Tehuantl: The sexy jaguarwoman has gotten some nice new artwork to show off. [Wahn]

Bugfixes & Balance Patches

Daphne: Light Typo Fix

Upcoming/In the Works

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

Bastet: A new expansion of Bastet's content is planned. [Wahn]
Carl: A rework for Carl is in the works, to update him to the current realities of the soldier squad event. [Wahn]
Colleen: More for Colleen after she has transformed while remaining sane. [Prometheus]
Swamps: A brand new area with new enemies! Will start off relatively small, but should become larger over time! Commissions available if you have a specific idea! [Voidsnaps]
Urik: A "dominant daddy" scene for Urik towards the player is in the works. [Wahn]
