Simply Mindy 3.0.0 / 3.2.0 Preview / Poll Results

Jesus christ. It's 9 am where I am and I'm still up. I need better time management skills. That, or... I don't know. Something.


This build had two purposes. First, it provided the end of the Camwhore storyline, along with the following:

  • Three more sexy sleepover animations with someone;
  • Some new cut scenes; and
  • Two new endings.
Always intended to be a fairly small storyline. Turned out well, though. 

The second half of the build, and the bulk, I'd say, went towards overhauling combat, both for my purposes and to make it more fun and robust. The changes include:
  • A few new enemy spells that will pop up in combat, which should please you pervs;
  • A greater role for status ailments;
  • Slightly smarter AI for a few of the enemies (though they're admittedly still pretty stupid on the whole);
  • A bunch more Titles that are combat-related;
  • Some new items for combat; and
  • A few fancied-up attacks that were a bit lacklustre before.
Mostly an under-the-hood build, but with the end of the game approaching getting this shit outta the way becomes increasingly important.

3.2.0 Preview

As I confessed to my patrons, I was rather sick of drawing shit this week. As such I sought out an alternative form of work in the form of adding audio. And yes, there was audio before, but now there's a lot of audio. The new build includes:
  • Songs, both of my own invention and snagged from a dude who is a substantially better musician than I am;
  • Several alternative moaning voices for the game's other girls, where appropriate;
  • A few more moaning clips for Mindy (who knows if you'll even notice them);
  • A crap-ton of sound effects for combat, both sexy and otherwise; and
  • Fixes for the existing audio. Which, admittedly, was rather scant.
If you like hearing women moan you'll probably enjoy this build. And, hey, that shit cost me a pretty penny, so... if you'd like to help me rebuild my coffers... it's only $2...!

Poll Results

This week I was sick of drawing period. Last week I was just sick of pixel art. My solution was to let my patrons decide which Sooniverse girl should get a painted treatment. I was not the least bit surprised to see Mindy win. So, yes, $3, and you can see her in her full, sweaty, krita-d glory. So cheap!

Simply Mindy 2.9.0 / 3.1.0 Preview / Poll Results

Hey hey, early build today. Better than the late one last time, right? Yep, I'm right.


This week's freebie build centres on Emm, the owner of the little shop in the first dungeon. The first half of her storyline already exists; now the second half is yours to peruse. The update includes:

- A branching storyline, no surprise;
- Three new sexy animations with Emm, also no surprise;
- Two new boss battles which you can encounter in a few different ways; and
- Three new endings. I considered a dungeon-centric job ending, similar to the other jobs, but... goddamn. There are so many endings already. Enough, I say, enough.

The last few endings have had some strong ties to Soo Cubus, and this one is no exception. You'll probably get more outta this build if you've played the first game. If you haven't... well, there are still plenty of nude animations.

3.1.0 Preview

Despite being the last lover NPC to pop into existence, Middle D, here, always scores pretty high on my Patreon polls whenever I ask what I should work on next, so this build is for him. It has the following:

- Storyline;
- Three new sexy animations;
- A new combat animation, because I had a really weird idea late last night; and
- Six new endings. Six. Because, I guess, I like him too.

$2, man. $2. That is a steal.

Poll Results

Since I was falling behind last week I needed an easy poll idea for my patrons, and anime popularity polls are always... popular... yeah. So, naturally, a Dragonball character won AGAIN, and thus the franchise was barred from any future anime polls. Android 18! Sexy! Krillin gets lucky! $3! Woo!

Simply Mindy 2.8.0 / 3.0.0 Preview / Poll Winner

Late build again. I spent a lot of time this week messing with programming in an attempt to streamline the combat and get rid of a bunch of problems. So. Yeah. Sorry it took so long to get the freebie version up.


This week's public release is basically a .gif dump, filling in a bunch of jobs that required more animations. The following were slotted into this dump:

- Two new animations for Shay (Ghostings and Darkly);
- Four new Modelling animations (Ghostings and Darkly);
- Two new Cosplay animations (Darkly);
- Two new Camwhore animations (Darkly);
- Two new Farmer animations (Darkly); and
- Two new Mascot animations (Darkly). Whooooole lotta Darkly.

That finishes off a bunch of jobs. This build also fixes the door for HardBeast (noticed by many) and the maze (noticed by few), among other things.

No More Browsers

Let's face it, Flash is on its way out. I know it, you might know it, and eventually, everybody's gonna know it. I've gotten a ton of complaints about lag on the browser version only in the past, and getting the game to work on browsers has been an oft-recurring problems for months. As such I'm no longer going to embed Simply Mindy onto the devblog. The download link is there; please use that from now on.

Not sure how to run the game? Or need to port over your save? Check the FAQ button at the top of the screen. There's a link on there for getting a standalone (debugger) version of Flash, as well as info for porting over your save games. And, yes, I can't stop you from downloading the .swf and just playing it on your browser anyway, but I highly, highly recommend you just get a standalone version of Flash.



The Patreon version of Simply Mindy is not, as of this writing, up yet. Sigh. is now up. Yay! You can expect the following changes:

- The end of the Camwhore storyline;
- Three new sexy animations from the star of the Camwhore storyline;
- A new ending (yes, just one, for once);
- A bunch of new and revamped moves for the combat system, as well as a general overhaul of the combat mechanics to give enemies more variety;
- More items;
- More Titles; and
- Substantial changes to the ending bonuses. You get a lot more bang for your buck with a lot of 'em.

$2. Man, that's so cheap.

What can I say, folks think shower sex is hot. Throw in Seu - for $3 - and you've got a swag combo.

The HardBeast's door is broken.

Would've answered this question earlier but the comments from the devblog keep getting shuffled into my spam folder. Sorry.

As I mentioned in the release notes for the previous build the doors got borked, and though I repaired the vast majority of them the door for the HardBeast's lair is currently broken. Missed it when I was jury-rigging the rest of them. As such the beast quest isn't currently completable, and you'll just get stuck in its room. Obviously I forgot to put that in the release notes for 2.7.5.

As of 2.8.0 the door thing has been fixed, so just skip the quest for now and do something else. In a couple days 2.8.0 will go up and the door will be fixed. Sorry again for the inconvenience.

Simply Mindy 2.7.5 / 2.9.0 Preview / Poll Results

Oooo, the big day. Soo makes her comeback. Are you ready for dis?

Preemptive Disclaimer

First off I should warn y'all that this build was a royal pain in the ass. I was forced to make a swap to a newer version of Stencyl, and doing so broke a few things. Notably the doors in the dungeons. I more or less fixed 'em, but they're less precise than they used to be. So. Be prepared for that.

The fix also made Simply Mindy a bit... temperamental, I found, when played in a browser. When I was testing it before it wouldn't retain my save game on Chrome. Checking now, it did keep the save game. I dunno. Regardless, I highly recommend you all stop playing it through the browser - yes, I know, I still have an embedded version up, for some reason - and just download the thing. Get a nice standalone version of Flash and play from your desktop. Or, perhaps, a folder hidden deep in your computer.

Browsers don't like Flash anymore. Just... save yourselves the pain.


Anyway! This build is pretty big, and though it has the usual two-path storyline things change more than usual if you go one way over another. I tried to emulate the faction wars-style play of Bethesda games in this one, and depending on which of Soo's jobs you pursue more fervently - and how you answer questions in the cut scenes - you may end up with her as a lover, or... someone else. Here's what you can expect outta this build:

- Eight new lover animations, shared between Soo and the new guy;
- A branching storyline with a fair number of possibilities - remind me not to try that again any time soon, it was a bitch to do;
- A sort of prep quest that will take you all over the game looking for stuff, regardless of which faction you back;
- If you side with Soo, a tower defence-style mini game, because I wanted to experiment;
- A battle if you don't side with Soo, three guesses who you'll be fighting; and
- A whopping seven new endings. Five are related to Soo and the other dude, two are related to the two jobs that trigger all of this (Prostitute and Arm Candy). One of the endings requires a very specific sequence of events to find, and I look forward to your complaints.

It was fun to write Soo again. She's such a goof compared to Mindy.

2.9.0 Preview

Thanks to a big 'ol poll, my Patreon decreed that Emm, owner of the dungeon shop, would be the next NPC to get the storyline treatment. Consequently, 2.9.0 nets you:

- A branching storyline starring Emm, who is more important than you might think;
- Three new sexy sleepover animations;
- Three new endings; and
- Two new battles. Image above unrelated, I swear.

$2? Oh man, yes. Only $2.

Poll Results

I wanted to see how a redux Mindy would look, using the slightly-higher-quality sprites I've been employing for the Patron bonuses.

... I think she turned out okay. Don't you? $3!

Simply Mindy 2.6.0 / 2.8.0 Preview / Poll Winner

It's that time again. Let's get started.


This week's freebie build has three new features which I brought in to give players a little alternative for building up their stats.

- First up are Minor Crises. Minor Crises pop up on the main city hub page from time to time (it's pretty obvious when they do), and when encountered present Mindy with, well, a minor crisis. You're given a situation, allowed to choose between three stats to resolve it, and see what happens. Succeed and you get a little prize; fail and you get a little penalty. Either way you get some cheeky animations. These will work into some of the storylines (already have worked into Soo's storyline in 2.7.0), but for the most part you can avoid Minor Crises completely if you're not keen on the idea.

- Next are Titles. If you click on Mindy's face on the main hub screen you'll be taken to a new screen where you can choose a Title for Mindy. Titles will give Mindy little bonuses when she sleeps. Note that these effects are negated under weird circumstances (story-based, usually) or if Mindy hasn't paid her rent. Titles are usually earned through end game bonuses, and when they're unlocked once they're unlocked for good 'n all.

- Last is another 'school' NPC (I want to give her a unique backdrop some day) who will allow you to swap stats for stats at a 2:1 ratio. You can also purchase some Titles from her. (And, naturally, she has been worked into the sexy-sexy animations in 2.8.0, specifically in Modelling.)

Also, a bunch of little fixes for past problems. There are always more bugs to root out and stomp.

2.8.0 Preview

I was deep-diving in code a lot this week, so I set the storylines aside for a bit and focused my non-programming efforts on new animations. Filled in a bunch of gaps in the lineup, including:

- Two new animations for Shay at the school;
- Four new Modelling animations;
- Two new Camwhore animations;
- Two new Farming animations;
- Two new Cosplay animations; and
- Two new Mascot animations.

It's a solid lineup. I think Mindy looks good in the Team Rocket outfit. Even if the iconic 'R' never makes an appearance.

A heads-up in advance to would-be Patreon subscribers that last week's build was a bit of a shitshow because of a change in Stencyl versions with unanticipated consequences (a lot of stuff broke), and much of this build focused on fixing what went wrong. Just sayin', things that worked before may be a bit janky, though I've gone to lengths to address the issues. You won't have any troubles getting at the new animations, at the very least.

Poll Winner

Whoops. Forgot to preview last build's poll thing. Ah well. It was Metroid-related.

Anyway! THIS build's $3 patron-exclusive animation bundle was a bit unique. I gave my patrons a bunch of polls, and the results helped me cobble together a new female character. Behold Lady Tang, insidious pirate captain of the Sooniverse. And, yes, I've incorporated her into Simply Mindy in a little cameo. Will probably give her a bigger role in a future game, whenever that might happen.

Wanna see her get nailed now? Well, hey, it's only $3...

Simply Mindy 2.5.0 / 2.7.0 Preview / Fanart Finally

Sorry for lateness, guys. Seems like it happens a lot, lately. Mixture of weird personal stuff (my grandmother kicked my laptop down a flight of stairs and broke it?), the holidays, and the game becoming increasingly complex.


At long last, contests are fully-implemented in this build. All four of the seasonal contests are up and running. They include:

- The usual wet t-shirt contest, with some new contestants;
- A button-tapping, cum-rising, heat resisting contest;
- A modeling contest, where you pick an outfit and a pose for Mindy and she does the rest; and
- A quiz. Get questions wrong and Mindy gets dipped into a vat of tentacles. Guess what happens to her then.

Aside from a little glitch in the quiz where some of the questions don't appear (which has been fixed in a later build), it's all good. There's also a new ending tied to the contests, because of course there is, and the next build has two more contest-related endings.

2.7.0 Preview

Not up yet, as of this message, but soon. It's a complicated one.

2.7.0 is a Soo-centric build, so fans of Soo Cubus should get a kick outta this one. It covers the Prostitute and Arm Candy storylines, which squirm together and build into a battle against another NPC. Choose your faction based on decisions made throughout the two storylines and see who comes out on top. This build includes:

- Two heavily-related storylines that come together and interweave;
- A new NPC to face off against Soo (no, not that dude above, he's just involved);
- Eight (!) new sleepover sexy-sexy animations for Soo and the newcomer, depending on which side you ultimately choose for Mindy;
- Seven new endings, five related to the Soo stuff, two for the Arm Candy and Prostitute jobs alone; and
- A basic tower defence minigame that pops up if you side with Soo. If you don't you instead get a battle, which is less interesting, but still a thing.

It's still underway, but I'm hoping to have this bad boy up before I go to bed tonight. Barring that, sometime later today (Sunday). So if you jump on Patreon to get it, you might need to wait a little while.

Guy Gin!


Yep, I'm a dick. I finally got around to posting the fanart that has been accumulating for the last few months. I've sent messages to everyone who sent the pics along, and posted 'em on the fanart page. I'll made a more concerted effort to wade through the ridiculous amount of email in my inbox on a regular basis so these don't slip through the cracks again.

If you sent art and I missed it, please resend it. I promise I'll be good this time maybe.
