Terminal Quickies: The New Girl

 

Hello all,

That’s right I’m still alive, even if I’ve been severely neglecting this blog outside of responding to comments. I currently view this blog as the place to post about work of mine that is in a complete/released state. Thus since v0.10 of Terminal Desires is STILL in development (Current ETA Mid June 2023) & none of the surrounding Terminal projects have been completed, I haven’t felt the need to post here in the meantime.

I find it far easier to tweet occasionally than to write up full blog posts, so follow me on Twitter here if you want to stay more in the loop.

Of-course, the best way to stay in the loop is to become a supporter on SubscribeStar OR Patreon. The $1 tier on either platform gets you access to all of the development blogs & the latest game builds upon release. And also access to the supporter discord server, another place more active than this blog.

All that being said, something HAS finally been completed. And that’s the reason for this random post all of the sudden. I previously introduced the concept of “Terminal Quickies” being canon short stories written by me & accompanied by commissioned 2D art from various artists. With the core goal being to provide additional lore/backstory insights that take place prior to the game’s story. Since then, that concept has evolved from illustrated short stories into full comics. One of which is being released publicly today.


Terminal Quickies: The New Girl is drawn by artist Lasga Claven & stars Lara Wells & Miguel CortΓ©s in events that took place 1 week prior to the initial Ashton Lake outbreak(16 days before Tiffany & Terry arrive in town at the start of Terminal Desires).

We never got to see Lara & Miguel's relationship in the game, so I figured a Terminal Quickies comic would be the best way to provide that bit of missing lore. So The New Girl is the story of how Lara came into Miguel's service, prior to the events of the Terminal Desires game.

If you wish to easily download the full comic for yourself you can find the archive at THIS MEGA LINK. Or keep reading here:






For additional game context, this story depicts Lara's first night performing undercover at the Ashton Lake Casino's club on Floor 1 (Where Tiffany can fight the gauntlet of zombies & encounter Andre on The game’s 2nd Day). The comic closes with them in Miguel's master bedroom on Floor 5 of the Casino (The same location where Tiffany & Lara confront Romeo on the game’s 3rd Day). 

 

Also included here are 2 reference renders I did of the characters standing next to each other:


 

And yes, "A Case of Conception" (The other Lara TQ story) is still in the works. Though the artist popsiclebunny & I in the process of transitioning that story into a comic for part 5 onward, after I've finished writing the already illustrated parts 3 & 4 of the short story component.

Terminal Quickies comics (and any other canon bonus content) will always be released publicly after they’ve been completed, as I have done here. But if you wish to get early access to individual pages as they release, consider supporting me at the $3 tier or higher on either SubscribeStar OR Patreon. None of this is possible without my extremely patient supporters.

Until next time, which will hopefully be a lot sooner... I do have plans for this blog, I’m just chronically slow & busy with the game. :’)

Terminal Quickies: Jailbreak - Part 1

 Hello, all!

I'm here today to share with you another 1st part of a "Terminal Quickies" short story, the other one that's currently in production. 

This one is titled "Jailbreak" and focuses on the characters of Hardwood Police Chief Officer Jasmine Juggs & Ashton Lake Deputy Sheriff Debra Derringer during a certain event that happened around 1 year prior to the game's beginning. This story, like the Lara one, is also cannon. Although this story is certainly much more straight forward and focusing only on a single sex scene. That doesn't mean it won't be any less fun though! :D

The art for this story is being done by NGTVisualStudio & the story is written by me.

Part 2 (including 3 more pieces of art by NGTV) are already up for all supporters to read on SubscribeStar OR Patreon.

 

 

Deputy Sheriff Derringer visits Hardwood City to get an invaluable tour of the correctional facility by the Chief of Police herself! Unfortunately, the two busty officers of the law end up getting a tad too close to some pent-up, horny inmates. Seems like those the cell keys weren't too safely secured by Juggs either...
I wonder what will happen next!? :D

 

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FIRST PART OF THE STORY IN PDF FORM.

 

 

As for the game, I'm still working hard on it. Still aiming to have an ALPHA & BETA builds out for supporters to test before the year ends. Thank you all for your patience. I believe the wait will be worth it once the Full Release of is finally out and I can return to much more normal releases from the early days of development.

Terminal Juggs - Issue 1: 14 Page Preview & Character Designs

 Hey everyone,

This post is intended to give the uninformed a better first look at the comic series that Serrated & I have been working on as bonus content for the $10 tier at SubscribeStar. Just so that everyone is on the same page with regards to what this comic actually is all about and what it contains. There are currently 56 comic pages available for the $10 subscribers and today, I'll be sharing the first 14 pages here for you to preview, along with a number of character designs/intros that I did for this. If you have any questions, feel free to post in the comments below. 
 
Just a quick content warning, at least this first issue of the comic contains a hefty amount of beast content. As such, it is not available on nor funded by my Patreon, just like the beast patch for the game (Terminal Desires) I keep all that content separate in order to abide by Patreon's content rules. If you wish to see more of that content from me, consider supporting on SubscribeStar if you're able.
 
Now, onto the good stuff.

Introducing the Hardwood City Police Department's (H.C.P.D.) Chief of Police: Officer Jasmine Juggs! (Age: 38)
 

Jasmine is a hard working, no-nonsense, tough-as-nails chief who consistently strives to uphold Law and Order in the fairly corrupt (even by this fictional world's low standards) Hardwood City. As the Chief of Police, she is Tiffany and Terry's boss, a companion character in Act 2 of Terminal Desires, and of course our protagonist character for the Terminal Juggs comic! It follows the story of Officer Juggs in the period of time between when Tiffany and Terry are first dispatched to investigate the distress call from the town of Ashton Lake (About a 3 hour drive from the city) until players reunite with her in ACT 2 of the game. And if you've played v0.09, then you'll know she makes her first, brief in-game appearance there:
 

"Hang on, Jim!? Isn't that 'Officer Juggs', the popular Police Chief character from 'MnF Games'?" Why yes, it is. Good eye ;) For those who don't know, I've been getting some help on writing some certain characters and plot points from the writer "Serrated" who is the creator of the Officer Juggs character and the writer for the majority of the games she's featured in over at MnF (Meet and Fuck) games. For example, Serrated helped create and wrote all of the dialogue for Debra, so you have him to thank for that character :) He's been wanting to do more with his Officer Juggs character (who I've been a big fan of for years), and before I started work on TD in 2018, had briefly worked with him on planning a comic that we were going to create. Unfortunately that ended up being canned because I had too many projects at the time and this was still just a hobby for me at that point. But after working on TD became my job, we re-connected and came up with a nice way to have his character cameo her way into the TD universe.

So while this is in theory the same Officer Juggs, with the same writer behind her, it's obviously an alternative reality where Juggs exists in the TD universe where of course the world is even more sexed-up than even the "MnF verse". So of course she has a super skimpy outfit to round off her design!

Those familiar with the character will know that she isn't a bimbo or a slut by default like Tiffany is (or can be - depending on your in-game choices/actions). And while she doesn't go out of her way looking for sexual encounters, they certainly have a bad habit of finding her! I have a feeling most of you will enjoy the upcoming scenes Serrated and I have in store for her.


Next up, meet the Mayor of Hardwood City: Mariana Inez Lafuente-Fresendo! (Age: 40)
 

Mariana was elected into office 3 years ago. She's an ambitious woman with a lot of politically powerful allies and backers. She's quite proud of the fact that crime in Hardwood is down over 11% since she began a tough crack-down campaign shortly after assuming her position. This has of course made her fairly disliked by a large number of the more organized syndicates that operate in city's shadows...

Mayor Fresendo is not the sort of woman who would have sex with just anyone. However, if it had any chance of furthering her political career or strengthening her political ties then she wouldn't hesitate at all. She knows exactly what she wants, and she knows how to get it. There are many who despise this side of her, though, and the city is full of rumors about her alleged under-the-table (literally) "deals". She's unmarried and officially has no children... officially... 

Just like with Officer Juggs, the Mayor will appear in both the Terminal Juggs Comic and the Game (In ACT 2). However, I don't have any plans on making her a companion character at this point in time. But I'm sure she will appear in multiple sex scenes either way.


Now with those two important introductions out of the way,  it's time to give you a small taste of the comic itself:

Terminal Juggs:

A Terminal Desires Story
Issue 1: "Hot Rods & Hot Dogs"
Cover Art: GrownUpJizz
Witness the concurrent events transpiring back in Hardwood City through the eyes of Police Chief Officer Juggs while Tiffany & Terry are trapped within the walls of Ashton Lake...
 












 


That's all for now...

I'll leave you to guess what kind of beastly things transpire from Page 15 on-wards ;) It's the current scene that I'm still working on that will span until the end of Issue 1. It's a long night of hardcore sexual misadventures ahead for Juggs filled with plenty of sex (not limited to beast) that's still going strong at page 56 where the comic is currently up to. There's still a ways to go before Issue #1 is concluded, but I try to publish around 3-5 pages per month (if I can) for the Special Forces tier over on SubscribeStar. This month I am taking a bit of a break from bonus content to focus on the game, but pages will resume publication in September.

Eventually, the completed issues will be made public right here on the blog since it's contents are relevant to providing more insight into various characters, and the world building of Hardwood City (the primary location of the game's second act). The final issue of the comic will end right before Tiffany makes contact with Juggs in person, during ACT 2 of Terminal Desires.

But while each issue is in production, it will remain as a bonus for Special Forces tier supporters on SubscribeStar.
 
Before we round this post off, I'd also like to share a few more designs. One for Juggs' Car Show outfit,  and one for the lucky boys who will get what they deserve in the end ;) 
 
 
 
Devout members of the Hardwood City Campus - Autosports Club. From left to right:  "Timoteo Fatu", "Fabio Farraway", & "Justin Wong". Of course, as they say themselves, (and with the rest of my characters) they are all at least 18 years of age. I'll keep my lips sealed for now, but it's possible that these 3 and the dog (Buster, though Juggs never bothered to learn his name) may show up in the game at some point too...

Thanks for your patience and support. Hope you're all doing well. The development of v0.10 continue on at a slow pace as usual. I hope this will help tide you over and at least give you some idea of what to expect from this comic if you decide to support it over on SubStar.

Terminal Quickies: A Case of Conception - Part 1

Hello everyone,

It's been a while... Again... πŸ˜“ But, I've got some content I've been meaning to post here on the blog for some time that I'm going to start getting around to starting with this one!

Other than the places you can support my work (SubscribeStar & Patreon + the supporter Discord that you get access to for being a supporter), the only other place I really post is on my Twitter. Where I'm not quite as active as I should be, but at least more active than on this blog! (Yes, I will go and responds to the big backlog of blog comments soon after this)

At some point in the near future, I plan on opening up parts of my Discord Server to the public, so that more people can easily follow along with me, the Terminal Desires community & and keep up with what's going on. And before I get into the main topic of today's post, v0.10 is still several months away at least. I have confidence that it will be out before the end of 2021. I hope to have v0.11 out by then as well. It is the biggest release to date and a massive overhaul of the game's prologue so far. Check the Roadmap here for more details on what's being added. I'll try to put together a basic summary blog here at some point too. Keep in mind that I took 2 unpaid months off this year where I paused my incoming support. So v0.10's only really been in active development for just over 4 months. Apologies, but you will just have to continue waiting. I can't give release date estimations anymore because I always end up missing them and disappointing people. I hate it too, but it will be done when it's done. There will be Alpha & Beta Releases for supporters to try out, but they will primarily be for locating bugs, because there will probably be a lot this time cause of all the changes and new features. πŸ˜…

 

Right, now what the heck are "Terminal Quickies"!?

Terminal Quickies are a collection of canon stories set in the Terminal Desires universe written by me and accompanied by illustrations from various artists. For "A Case of Conception" this is a story centered around he character of Lara Wells and fleshes out her life as an associate attorney in Hardwood City (Where Tiffany & Terry are from) roughly 1-2 months before the events of the game (where we see her masquerading as a bimbo maid). It is also a great opportunity to expand on the world, introduce new characters (who may show up in the game later...) and divulge some information that doesn't really fit inside of the game's already bloated exposition dumps! And of course, Lara's story here is being illustrated by the wonderful popsiclebunny

With this post, I am finally making the first part of this story available to the public. However, Part 2 is available right now (Two more pieces of art & around 5000 more words) to all $1+ supporters over on SubscribeStar OR Patreon. From now on, every time a Terminal Quickies story receives an update over on those platforms, I will come and release the previous installment to you all on the blog here. πŸ‘  Since it is important to have access to some of this information/lore since it is all canon after all and you never know what seeds I may be planting inside of these things for future game events! 😈

Also, here are some reference renders I did of Lara's design for her attorney look. 😘


 

 

Thanks for your patience, more posts soon. I have to share with you all the first pages of the Terminal Juggs Comic that I've been working on so that people actually know what to expect from that SubscribeStar project.
