Game Version Changelog:
Version 0.19 – After Hours
Happy 2024, X-Change enthusiasts! We’re kicking off the year with a bang and a host of thrilling updates that’ll keep you on your toes (or your back). TWO new X-Change Pills, sex scenes with stepdad, new sex scenes with Bruce in both male and female form, 800+ new outfits, and a host of quality-of-life changes to improve your gameplay experience!
Note that my roadmap has been slightly shuffled around – I have completed some items that were further down the roadmap, so I have moved the version number up to 0.19 for this one.
- Stepdad content (voted on by subscribers) – this content is unlocked by working as a Secretary. You will need to go to a massage post-work, and somehow acquire “phoenix root powder.” This will turn your hair red, and remind your stepdad of his ex-wife… and then you will have the option to slowly escalate things. (This includes, 7 unique story scenes, 2 sex scenes).
- The sex scene with stepdad and you as the secretary, involves trying not to make too much noise such that Alexia catches you. She has actual AI and wanders around the house, you have to listen for where she is – if she’s close, be quiet until you hear her walk away!
- Two New X-Change Pills: Cum-Cure and Resistance
- Cum-Cure Pill: This transformative pill lasts for one month by default, but if you swallow cum, the effect decreases by a week or more, depending on the size of the load. Priced at $625, you can play it safe and avoid oral activities or, if you’re feeling adventurous (or cornered), use it to shorten your transformation. But be aware, there’s a pregnancy chance, though it’s lower than with the X-Tra Strength pill.
- Resistance Pill: This pill keeps with the spirit of the r/XChangePill subreddit lore, by “punishing” you for orgasms with a longer transformation. But how is that a punishment if you like being a girl? The catch is that you can only climax once every three days without incurring additional stacking side effects. Cum more than that, and you’ll start experiencing stat debuffs, XP debuffs, and random arousal. It’s a game of “orgasm rationing,” but for those who like to live dangerously, let the side effects pile up and see what happens!
- Bruce/Bree Scene with Cum-Cure Pill: I’ve added a scene with Bruce where if he loses at Blackjack, you can make him (as Bree) drink your cum and shorten his transformation.
- Bruce’s Resistance Deal: Bruce can now offer you a Resistance pill instead of a Breeder (which was kind of unfair!) However if you accept this change, you agree to let him visit you during the duration of your transformation whenever he wants. You can set ground rules for his behavior (such as telling him to always pull out), but he may then set ground rules for you in return (such as charging you $50 per orgasm!)
- Secretary Gameplay Overhaul: To reduce repetition and add strategy, I’ve made changes to make the secretary minigame more enjoyable. Key features include the new “flow state,” which doubles your points during auto-work, and “Let’s keep it professional,” which allows you to lower NPC horniness and attraction to prevent distractions from your work! Now, the ideal playstyle is to solve Wordle once yourself, then to use Auto-work after that. Additionally, you can purchase stat training XP at the end of each secretary day to make low-stat characters easier to improve.
- New outfits and enhanced clothing system: With over 800 new outfits added (donated by the wonderful Curio on the Discord), you’ll enjoy more unique and impactful clothing choices that affect gameplay, thanks to gameplay enhancements contributed by Ebiora. Sluttiness now has a much greater effect – it affects who approaches you, comfort impacts mood strength, and price influences potential partners’ wealth. There are too many new outfit features to easily list here, including both gameplay mechanics and quality of life. For instance, you can only get unique outfit buffs once per week, and your character will naturally rotate them accordingly if you have enough outfits. Outfits no longer rip as much!!! Additionally, it will be much more obvious what your outfits actually do – previously there were a bunch of hidden mechanics which I tried to make immersive by hiding them and subtly influencing the game, but players agreed it was more fun to see and understand them.
- Autosave and UI Improvements: An autosave feature has been introduced by Maxahoy, and the saving functionality has been built out by Goctionni – I had previously released the updated saves screen, but there are a few new usability features now. Please let me know if you encounter any issues with the new saves screen… it’s possible there are still some kinks to work out.
- Also integrated a mod from Portinari that changes the “wait while getting fucked” scenes to have an actual progress bar so you know how long they are taking.
- Gameplay balance additions. In general, levelling core stats will now be more challenging. Additionally, your levelling is determined by your character type – Nerds train intellect faster, Jocks train fitness faster, and Playboys train charm faster.
- Made some improvements to your drink getting spiked – you might get one of the new pills as well!
- Many changes with a focus on performance improvements. I am still working on improving the game’s performance, and now you should notice some additional speed-ups. The save files will also be a lot smaller, as the game does a better job at cleaning up variables after various scenes.
- Lots of other little changes and bug fixes I can’t remember!
Version 0.18b – In the Hole
- 5 new sex scenes – including new topics, like free use, Purple Pills, etc.
- 2 new item types
- Achievements system
- 50 new female NPCs
- New interactions with male NPCs
- 100k words’ worth of new descriptions and content
- Lots of new game mechanics and balance improvements to add depth to existing content
- Dozens of new quality of life features!
- Performance and technical improvements
- More details
- Bruce – the playboy son of Victor Maddox, CEO of SWP, now has his own goals and will increasingly act as a “chaos agent” in the game. He will start sleeping with the in-game girls in the background, and might see you as a threat!
- Bruce will have an effect on the girls at the bar – if he’s currently sleeping with them, they will be more resistant to your advances. You can shake his hold by giving them lots of orgasms etc!
- Bruce will also hit on Alexia sometimes at the club – your options when this happen will depend on your relationship with her
- Bruce will try to convince you to “bet your masculinity” – lose a game of cards, and you take a pill to become a woman (he’ll then try to convince you to fuck!)
- Or take revenge! Bring your own X-Change pill to the card game, beat him, and make him take a pill and become a woman himself! (If it’s a Breeder pill… you might be able to take advantage of his – now her – urges…)
- Blackjack has been fully revamped with new mechanics and rules to make it more interesting to play. https://x-change.life/wiki/docs/summer-city-blackjack/
- 2 sex scenes – 1 with Bruce as male and you as female, 1 with “Bree”
- Achievements! Thanks to the tireless work of datdude69, and achievement suggestions from the wider X-Change Life community, we now have an achievements system in place – this will help you track how much of the game content you’ve seen! I bet there’s more than you thought
- Achievements are tracked outside your saves
- Modders can also add their own packs of achievements!
- Handbags – in order to change clothes out in public, you now need a handbag. There’s a whole range of them to buy, and different ones will give you different perks and XP bonuses based on how color coordinated, etc you are!
- Buy Bubba Zipple – the refreshing soft drink that comes in 7 out of this world flavors, all with different effects! Purchasable at the club, the bar, the mall, and you can also find them in your own fridge – drink them at night though, and you’ll get a debuff in the morning from lack of sleep due to caffeine
- Your fitness will decay over time if you don’t hit the gym every once in a while, and your charm / sex skills will decay if you don’t go out and at least socialize! (doesn’t affect low stat characters – only if you are trying to invest in high stats)
- 3 new NPC sex scenes (these are actually VERY hot and fairly in depth – I don’t want to spoil them too much)
- 2 At the mall (triggerable as male)
- 1 At the club (triggerable as female)
- 100 new hairstyles
- Balance changes:
- NPCs offering you money for sex has been reduced / nerfed.
- Stripping payouts are no longer easily exploitable.
- Action points can be spent on more things
- Two new types of NPC interactions when males hit on you in public places – they can “Neg” you (backhanded compliments), and you have more options for telling them off / making them go away (the option to “get upset” is more reliable and powerful – and there are hundreds of new tailored dialogue lines for this)
- There’s lots of other new features but I am getting a little tired of writing this changelog…
- New modding tools and features to make it easier for Modders to create mods that don’t have compatibility issues with new game versions, and to more easily write scenes.
- It’s hard to convey just how many hundreds/thousands of hours went into this build, hope you enjoy it!
This game is still in an early stage of development, as I am still building out the core game mechanics. That said, there are already a large number of scenes to try out, although some are tricky to find. Go to the tip jar in the cafe for hints!
X-Change™ Life is a daily life RPG based in a universe where it’s normal to take over-the-counter gender swapping pills that last 24 hours (or more). The game features heavily minigame-driven gameplay to determine passing / failing checks at different points. You’ll always have the option to skip minigames by using a “skill check”, where your % success chance is driven by your character’s stats/skills. I really enjoy gamifying sex actions, and prefer sex to feel more “interactive” rather than a slideshow or a wall of text as in most Twine-based games. So, I am just making what I personally enjoy the most, but your mileage may vary. The game is slightly limited by what is possible to write in Twine, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised if you allow yourself to get into it.
