Lety's Original Textures Are Back In The 0.21.2 Mini Stable Release Maintenance Update!
What's up, totally cool-muy bueno-fellow party persons? We just wrapped up House Party version 0.21.2, which is a fairly small but much-needed maintenance update that brings the party closer to our ultimate goal of being...dope sickness...on fleek...lit…
Alright, we'll keep it together and give you a quick rundown: We're making good progress toward getting full controller support and an initial version of the female player beta ready for you guys to check out in our next big stable release, so it won't be much longer until you can officially play as House Party's female protagonist! We know you're stoked to test the waters of muy caliente girl-on-girl love gameplay, so we're working hard to get her into the party as soon as possible!
Speaking of hotness at the party, you may have realized your favorite sultry Spanish teacher has been looking a little...well, covered in black bars for the last couple of updates. Unfortunately, Steam updated the rules policy regarding depicting real people in video games, which raised some concerns about Lety's content. To stay on the safe side and not risk having the game or any major part of it completely removed, we were forced to censor her for a short time while we got everything figured out and learned more about the new rules.
If you've read House Party's title screen or any of our interviews, you already know we're not fans of censorship. We weren't happy to censor Lety's content all of the sudden on you guys, so we prioritized getting this fixed as soon as we could. Thankfully, we were able to discuss the content directly with Steam's team and made adjustments to get Lety uncensored again! In this update, she's no longer restricted by those ugly black bars so, as long as you own the Explicit Content DLC, you can now see her again in all of her sexy cool kid extraordinaire glory with this update!
We also have some bonus good news on the anti-censorship side of things. Before this update, we had to censor everything body-wise, at all times, in the non-explicit version of the game. However, in this update, we'll no longer have upper body mosaic censors on characters regardless of explicit DLC ownership or installation. This is a huge win for House Party!
We hope you're looking forward to these changes and thanks for being patient while we fixed this, dudes. We know it was probably shocking and frustrating to have her content unexpectedly blacked out, and we weren't expecting the rules to change on us like that. As a mature game we always have to tread carefully with our content, and as a small development team we appreciate you guys allowing us extra time to get it fixed.
Anyway, onward to the next update! We're running a bit behind on our original timeline estimate, so we've gotta cruise. In the meantime, enjoy the maintenance changes and having your passionate times with Lety back to normal. Remember...no grabbing, guys, NO GRABBING!
Adiós for now, party animals.
