The patron version will include some bonuses such as the bonus audio and bonus scenes that won't go out in the free version

Oh you had another game? I kinda wish I had the opportunity to play it, haha. What was it like?
Hypno master was a brief game where you played a massive dickwad that went around and enslaved a few women in RPG maker, then ended with a harem ending.

So basically like all my other games except much more primitive and worse. Also I didn't have any art back then and it was done for free so I used random art from the net.

Ever thought of doing one were you gradually hypnotize, brainwash, and enslave women in a dating/raising sim type of game?

Now THAT sounds highly appealing.
I've been working on Snow Daze for a few years now, and I'm glad to say that it's close to the time I can show the finished product to the world. Thanks to everyone that stuck with us while we made it. This is the time for it to all pay off.

Now I've got some new previews for you all! I initially hoped to have the game out for a release today, but alas- I had a bit of bad luck. We couldn't quite the get the art done in time for the wonderful release date. The game's final version will still be out this month, however! The delay should be just a few more days. In the mean time I want to show you all some of the awesome art we're working on!

Also, in addition to new art this release of the game will include ALL of the bonus audio. That'll always be a patron thing, though, so waiting for the free version will not get you that extra. This version of the game will also let you swap costumes on characters and include new underwear outfits for all the girls, fully fleshed out expressions and tons of little polish work and bugfixes. This will be the great definitive version of Snow Daze.
Heh, nice to know that this'll be available soon enough. I really liked the earlier versions but decided to wait until the full release to go further than Day 1. Largely because of all the extra polish and content that'd be added by that point. Though, I'm a little confused on the wording of those last couple of sentences. Is it just the extra audio that is Patron exclusive, or are the alt costumes, expressions, and such also patron only?

Also, to be honest, I'd actually like to hear a bit more about this Hypnolab thing you've mentioned a couple times. From what little I can piece together, I'm guessing the basic concept is like a sort of hypno sandbox type of thing? If I had to compare my mental image of it to something, I'd compare it to the Virtual Hypno-Tan thing that EdgeoftheMoon was doing a while back. Though obviously, considering you have a whole team behind you, it'd be a LOT more in-depth. Anyway, just thought I'd ask if you had anything to share on that front.

1: The updated art will go free but all the bonus audio and other stuff bundled in this release will not. There's also a lot of bugfixes and such over the last public free version.

2: Hypnolab will get its own thread when it's time, but it's basically a small VR sim where you're in a booth conducting hypno-themed "experiments" on a scientist. Push button, pendulum pops out. I saw virtual hypno-tan and the VR game Job Simulator and decided they could be combined. We'll start working on it a lot more next month. There's a build on the net we made for a game jam but it isn't fully working.

Is it still the $20 tier to get all those bonuses for this release?
Will we ever get an easily navigable gallery with all the sex scenes and dialogue where all the paths are clearly laid out? Unlocked after you finish the game and all the branches of course.

Because its a pain when I want to go back and have a wank, *errr* appreciate your hard work, to try to remember which save file is which and what text options take me where. Especially since I'm a big fan of the bad ends.

Can't wait for the final release and all your future projects.
We've been working on this game for two years, and I'm happy to say that it is finally DONE! Snow Daze the Music of Winter is 100% donesies. Doneso. We've put our blood, sweat, tears, and other bodily fluids into this game and made something I'm proud to call ours. It's been a long journey and you all kept us going through the whole period. The game will get a few patches to fix some final small polish issues going forward, but all the content is here. Snow Daze is going to gleam like the winter sun!

The final version includes:
-Redrawn CG's for a number of scenes
-New CG's added to the orgy scene.
-Bonus audio short stories integrated with the game
-The ability to change costumes
-Tons of little tweaks, additions and surprises, characters now have full ranges of expression
-HD mode, with widescreen support
-Costume changing ability.

This release contains some content which will not be released for free - namely all the bonus audio and the extra art. It's releasing today, the 27th of april 2018. Some of this content can only be gotten in this, the final version of the game. It's available to patrons or for sale on itch.io.

Check out these amazing previews!

Congrats on completing the game! Somehow in those two years I don't think I actually bothered to play one of the versions, so I only have some idea what I'm getting into and I really do need to play it.

We'll have the full version up before midnight, so you'll be free to try it!
I had typed out some intricate and supportive reply a week or so ago, but it didn't send, so let's try this again

I'm really excited for you, Cypress. It's wonderful to see that you've been able to create this game, and i'm equally pleased that i'll be able to enjoy the finished version. I remember faintly back when you first annouced it as Home Invasion, and I recall a vague interest at the time, but now, having played the earlier builds and spending time with these lovely characters, i couldn't be more on board~

Let's hope SD gets the classic status in the community that it rightly deserves, and hope that this inspires other budding devs in the hypno community. <3

Brellom doin some sick work on that spoiler by the way

Idlecum did the color for that particular picture, but Brellom has been involved on color since the start. You can give all the color choice and pallette decisions full credit to her, and almost all of the art in the game.

Thanks for the kind words!

Whoops! Guess I was misinformed

We have a big team and don't always post every behind the scenes moment. Brellom did about 95% of the color for the game, but not all. She also has a job as a colorist on a comic and other stuff, so if things are too booked I'll nab someone else for what I need.

It's that way for anyone on the team. They're supposed to look like each other's work, though, so it's no surprise you couldn't tell.

You didn't really make a mistake, I just never mentioned it before.

final version release
I remember trying this out a few updates ago, and really liking what I saw. I'm probably going to redownload this and give it another go, because I love your games !
Speaking of which, what are you planning on doing in the near future, now that Snow Daze is pretty much finished ? Any other projects ? Overwhored 2 on the radar ? Something else ? I'm excited !

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you, but I'm currently working on Hypnolab and Overwhored 2. I'll show you all some stuff starting next month!
