    Hey everyone Regis here. Two of the things that makes Carnal Souls a game I want to play is the variety of porn in this game. Another reason is dungeon diving. Now I know not everyone is excited about the prospect of this but being a fan of jrpgs and RPGs it tickles my body. In any case I'm happy to discuss what would people like to see about the dungeons. Are there going to be many floors? Is it radomized? A certain amount of enemies? Like some very great RPGs close to my heart like Fire Emblem Sacred Stones have a 100 floor dungeon with very special rewards? I'm just throwing out ideas people.

    Just a speculation thread. Anything discussed here may not even be in the game.

    I'd like variety. Variety and the kind of incredible locales only sprawling fantasy can bring. Massive caverns lined with shimmering crystals three times your size, decrepit mountain castles filled with ancient relics, and thick woods where the mushrooms come up to your thighs. Text adventures are perfect vehicles to build these landscapes, not to mention cost efficient, but so far the other games in this specific sub genre (you know what they are) haven't taken advantage of that. Beyond the smut itself they feel kind of uninspired.

    To talk about actual dungeon specifics, I'd be okay with numerous small mobs to fill it out, but I'd prefer a small number of fleshed out enemies to encounter over legions of clones. Interesting characters, you know? Less same-y more their own person.

    Well for coc when you first enter an area it gives you a description but after it gets pretty bland making the game only the choices you make after that the enviroments doesn't matter, fighting enemies can be as quick as a 3 click battle and because of that I can't say I really enjoy it. Tits does try to expand those faults but to me it feels like it's still lacking dungeon content. There's no reason to go back to the other areas. Once you finish a quest there's no reason to go back. I'm very hopeful that Benji will expand with his game.

    I'm basically with Godwin on this.

    I like dungeons as exploration content, not as much as set pieces.
    Going into a dungeon knowing that it will contain some enemies, a boss at the end and treasure after completion is not very interesting to me. On the other hand if that's just one of the different types of dungeons in the game, then that's fine.
    I love finding caves/ruins/actual dungeons etc when I'm out adventuring and then going into them expecting anything. It could be a deserted location with mainly lore stuff, it could turn out to be inhabited by friendly or neutral characters, it could be a hostile lair more akin to a classic dungeon or it could just contain an interesting exploration opportunity with some loot and mystery.

    I would like to see dungeons like the ones from FFVI and you say a Special Dungeon (100 trials or Unlimited) that contains very special loot!. Random ones are always good!

    If you couldn't tell from my current profile pic, I adore the fire emblem games and I think a cursed tower similar to that would be welcome, but of course it would almost certainly overshadow smaller, perhaps better written dungeons.

    I was thinking more end game content for people who want more of a challenge.

    Living dungeons can be fun.
    And I suspect a porn game could do different things with them than other genres could ;)

    by that do you mean a dungeon with flesh-like walls, strange egg-like and fleshy living things in the floor with facehuggers or tentacles inside that attack you and tie you to a wall that absorbs your arms and legs to make it imposible to escape and then be penetrated by more tentacles and other fleshy weird things of the dungeon or just be exploring the forest an between plants and rocks find a weird pink cavern where you enter to explore and result in being the "entrance" of a living creature?

    I'd love some dungeons in the game (with actual loot and stuff) that can be entered *without* a quest. CoC, TiTS and FoE all seem to treat dungeons as quest material, and limit your presence in them to quest-specific visits only. I'd love to get a dungeon that you can freely enter/leave at your own will, even if you're underlevel for it (DARK SOULS BITCH).

    Well since Benji loves Dark Souls, and since I mean loves we will not see him for awhile when 3 comes out tomorrow there will definitely be references or even mechanics in CS. Don't worry about not having anything from dark souls in CS.

    While not completely inaccurate, try not to speak on my behalf, haha. As I said in the Dark Souls thread here, a lot of the mechanics just wouldn't work for CS. I am taking some cues from DaS as far as combat abilities go, which there's already a blog post about, but then that's also taking cues from Pokemon as well. Can probably expect some references here and there but nothing egregious. I'd rather slam my fingers in a car door than have 'praise the sun' in my game.

    DS is more than just actual mechanics - It's a whole different look at game design philosophy. I think even taking vague inspiration from the series will do miracles for Carnal Souls.

    I mean, either or really.
    Except for the "impossible to escape" part. I'm not big on Bad Ends.

    Specially when you committed to that path ages ago. Please don't put stuff that requires a decision to be made way earlier than the quest itself (or on the quest itself).

    me neither, where is the fun of just enter and being trapped forever?
    it was just an example to know what do you mean
    also, i was thinking, if that can be added to to game maybe put some kind of parasite that invades your body if you get trapped and transform your entire body to some kind of monster that gets corrupted by passing time (if there is some kind of corruption system) so you have to find a way to get back to normal (whatever that means for your character)
