Parasite Black [v0.154] by Damned Studios


v0.154
Remaster
-This is only a DEMO: – It is NOT an official update! It only contains the opening prologue, which has been fully reworked and mostly remastered, pending a few character models. The next official release will incorporate all the changes you see, and more, as well as new content! DO NOT DELETE YOUR OLD BUILD!
-There is some light new additional lewd content, alongside new story related content and swathes of improvement to gameplay!
-Improvements are still continuing, this is not the finished product! Stay tuned for the big release!
-The game is planned to enter EARLY ACCESS for the end of Act 1! (Within the next 2-3 updates!)

v0.153

Well guys, it’s finally here!
A couple things:
-The travel maps mechanic is the last major feature/mechanic to be integrated into the game. From here on out, we’ll just be adding depth to ALL of existing systems and improving on them, such as combat, enemy AI, etc.
-The next focus now, is on (finally) the Mages of Palam quest(s) and wrapping up Captain Nyx for Act 1, before moving on towards finally wrapping up Act 1’s main quests and leaping ahead with the story (with Regina content). We’ve already made a start gathering assets and things already~
-Apologies for the lack of communication on this one, we’ll try get back to our more regular news updates shortly.

As usual, thank you all for your amazing amount of support helping to bring this project alive,
you guys are awesome!
Love,
