New build of The Allure of Wanton Cove is all ready go to! 

For everyone who is new to my work, check out the free build of the game, it includes everything that appears in the Cheat Build, minus said Cheat Menu.  The cheat menu allows you to adjust stats at will which makes finding some content much easier to find, however all content should be reachable without the need for cheats if you know where to look across multiple playthroughs. 


"The Allure of Wanton Cove is a dark tale of horror set within the Cthulhu Mythos created by the renowned author H.P. Lovecraft.

You take on the part of a washed up former detective who could never let go of the last terrible case he worked.  Content to live the rest of his life at the bottom of a bottle, his former partner comes knocking, begging for his help.  Help that he is loath to give until offered a tantalizing clue that could finally unravel the case that plagues his every waking thought.  He accepts, having no idea that the truth he will find is infinitely more terrible than what already haunts him."

I've downloaded it. but because this game is a long game, so I have not been able to give criticism or suggestions on new things added. I just started and have not reached that part hehehehe. Just give feedback so you know I'm still monitoring your work.

Enjoy all that the Lord has given in your life, and share with as many people as possible.

This game looks really really good. I joined the patreon, and can't wait to give it a shot. I played a little of the futa game and it was fun even though I got stuck and had to start over a couple times. I must admit before that game and one other I hadn't played browser games like this before. Also going to check out the site you posted with those other games / stories

Now, you might be asking yourself about now, what's the difference between the Public and the Patreon versions of the game?  Well, they contain all of the same content, but the Patreon version includes  a cheat menu that can make some content much easier to find by allowing you to adjust your stats at will, add money to be spent on additional ammo or goods, or even adjust your corruption as the game progresses.

I found two bugs.

First is when you explore the ruins, you get the following error:

"   Error: the passage "Ruins23" does not exist"

Secondly is when your character becomes a woman and losses the book. When you visit Mr Morichi and you ask him about the image from the book you get the following passage:

"Mr Morichi raises an eyebrow, sitting his cup down as I pull the leather bound tome from my jacket and open it to the page I had seen an image of Azumi
on. His eyebrows rise in surprise, “Oh my,” He says in a breathless whisper. Reaching out, his fingertips touch the image, tracing its outline like a lover’s
caress. With his other hand, he adjusts his glasses, situating them precisely on his nose before leaning close to the book. I can see his eyes drift over
the image, then turn to the text. He spends several minutes focused on the book before him, seeming to have forgotten me entirely."

Darn, didn't Tania take the book?

Perfection is never easy. But after more than 21 years...
...I got the hand of it.

Thank you very much for the bug report.  First issue should be fixed, and I'll look into the second as soon as I am able.

New build of Wanton Cove for anyone who is interested!

\

Changelog 1.08

-New Female Deep One fight in the Ruins.
-New Female Deep One fight on the Waterfront.  VERY rare.
-Updated the Case Notes area with new information related to the "Azumi Origin" story.
-New conversation with Ms Sherwood for those who have progressed far enough down the "Azumi Origin" path.
-Did minor rewrires to many of the locations in the game to improve flow.  Much of the game was originally written as if you were entering the location from the direction it was first presented for, when you come back through those locations this has caused confusion for some players.  I am working to get these discrepancies fixed.
-Added Female Deep One fight for both the Waterfront and Ruins to the Cheat Menu shortcuts for easy access.
-Fixed a spacing issue in Nadia's shop that made the Machete difficult to notice.
-Fixed a bug in Aaron's dialogue about the Ruins.
-Then realized that there was a second bug related to Aaron and the Ruins, . . . so fixed that too.
-Fixed a double link issue related to a White Goo event on the Bluff.
-Fixed a bug with Rose Crow that was tripping up her content a bit.
-I THINK I fixed a double link issue in the good part of town related to Cobb's scene there.
-There was  a broken set of circumstances when you talk with Tanya about Tom.  I've never been able to run down the cause of it, but I did just write a small scene to fill that spot which should prevent people from seeing the blank screen from now on and will fit any timeline in the story.
-Made a small adjustment to the dialogue in the Fountain Investigation scene to reflect that some players may not have met Nadia yet.
-Did some major work to the NewGame+.  I had failed to reset all of the variables going into the second playthrough.  This should now be resolved.
-Added a possible fix for the money bug that has been lingering for months now.  Thanks to HiVE over on TFGamesSite for providing a solution.
-Updated "Special Thanks" area with Patrons who pledged at the $10 and up levels.  6/29/18
-Added about 8k words of content to the game bringing the game's total size up to about 403k words of content.

Just a Suggestion if not already implemented: Maybe the cases of the past the detective had to solve could be implemented as playable stories as well. As side stories for example in Addition to the big main Story. So, it is possible to Play even the past in his life and put all the stories in one big game.

That would require quite a bit of work, and I'm not entirely sure how best to approach it. 

If you're interested in playing additional stories within the setting, I'm currently expanding the game with side stories, and even once the game is complete, I have plans to tell additional stories within the setting eventually.

What site is this? There are a lot of games like this that aren't in the browser like this that we can't play.  They're either made in RPG Maker or something similar.

I think they were referring to the story site that I write for once in a while.  https://chyoa.com/user/GateKeeper_A  The link will take you to my profile, and from there you can easily find any of my stories if you are interested.  The stories are set up like the old choose your own adventure stories where you read a page then have a choice to make and you are directed to the next page based on that choice.

The changelog for this build is deceptively short.  This build actually adds a whopping 10k words of new content to the game, however that content is centralized in a small number of scenes.  Plenty of new naughtyness with Azumi!

Changelog 1.11
-New sex content with Azumi.  It's a really big scene that can play out in a total of 14 different ways depending on Taint, Depravity, and state of Virginity. (Basically it boils down to 4-5 primary scenes with variations of each.)
-New conversation with Lady Anne.
-Added one new image to the game.
-Updated "Special Thanks" area with Patrons who pledged at the $10 and up levels.  9/11/18
-Added about 10k words of content to the game bringing the game's total size up to about 426k words of content.

@ashaman Hello there! Does the game has new background scenes?

Thumbs up

122

I don't get it.. I've beat this game twice.. Are all the endings bad?

Thumbs up

123

I think there should be some good endings as well, but when beating the game a couple of times I only managed to get the bad ones. So on which stat does it depend? Taint, madness, something else?
spoiler alert!
When reading the forum I saw that taint is mainly important for the change of gender. I finished the game with taint 34, became genderless and had a bad ending. My madness was 1.

"The Allure of Wanton Cove is a dark tale of horror set within the Cthulhu Mythos created by the renowned author H.P. Lovecraft.

You take on the part of a washed up former detective who could never let go of the last terrible case he worked.  Content to live the rest of his life at the bottom of a bottle, his former partner comes knocking, begging for his help.  Help that he is loath to give until offered a tantalizing clue that could finally unravel the case that plagues his every waking thought.  He accepts, having no idea that the truth he will find is infinitely more terrible than what already haunts him."

For those of you who posted since my last post.  Sorry for the long time before a reply, I haven't checked back here and I didn't receive a notice that a message has been posted since my last post.   I'll try to address things now:

If by "Background scenes"  you mean the small scenes that play most of the time when you move from location to location, yes, I add a small number of those every couple of builds just to help keep navigation fresh as you travel about the island.

And for those of you asking about "Happy endings"  There is a single "Happy end" to the game that you can only get by completing the game through one of the primary endings then choosing the "Happy Ending" option afterwards.
