Tailor Tales beta 1.3

Tailor Tales beta 1.3 is finally out! Loads of content added!

Changelog:
- Fixed a bug that wouldn't let you create bottoms
- New introduction and character selection
- Shops added
- You can now design clothing for clients
- Chapters now cost money to proceed, or require clothing items
- Autoread option added
- Neil's chapters 21 through 25 added (17k words)
- Dimitri's chapters 4 through 6 added (8k words)
- 2 CGs added
- Markus & Evelin now have working expressions
- Added Angela's dress
- Many more backgrounds added
- Minor graphical changes to various graphics
- Characters can now run off the screen (I'm looking at you, Neil)
- Added a couple of new hairstyles and item accessories
- Added a beginner tutorial
- GodMode removed

Your previous save file will not work in this version. Please either back-up the previous version, or delete it, and play this version with a fresh file. Previous beta players can still play where they left off by indicating so during the introduction.

GodMode is removed in this version - you no longer have access to all items from the start, neither can you read the story while skipping all requirements. You now have to earn money to progress the story, as reading costs money and it scales up with each chapter.

Everyone will now have to be forced to go through the introduction as well as the designing tutorial. I'm not taking any chances with people pressing "no" on the tutorial and skip it.

Decorate is still not an available option in this version. You can finally shop though - although the backgrounds for the shops still aren't finished, neither are the shopkeepers.

Neil's route splits in chapter 25 into the Passionate ending or the Innocent ending. Try re-reading chapters and pick different answers to read both versions of chapter 25! This does mean that Neil's route, from here on out, is officially split. Each ending has two chapters, a CG unique to that ending, and a shared epilogue. That means, there's only 3 more chapters left to go until Neil's route is complete!

I wanted to re-design the in-game menu, but that will be saved for a different update. This update will still have the old version. Sometimes the CG gallery behaves a bit glitchy and will display the previous CG you saw, instead of the one you clicked.

Mac version will be released sometime after the PC version is out.


Questionnaire for those that have played beta 1.3:

1. What is your gender and age?
2. Where did you find out about Tailor Tales?
3. Is the art style appealing to you, or did it take some convincing?
4. Which (available) character is your favourite?
5. What's your favourite scene?
6. What's your favourite CG?
7. Which character would you like to be available next?
8. How many fierce points and how many kind points did you get at the end of each route?
9. How much tailoring experience and gold did you end up having at the end?
10. Was it difficult getting gold to purchase the chapters, or was it easy?
11. Was it difficult re-creating garments that were important clients? I.e. the masquerade dress, Angela's dress, or the opera dress.
12. Favourite aspect of the game?

If you encountered a bug, please follow these steps:
- Please take a screenshot of the bug in question, or give me a detailed description.
- Give me a detailed description of the things you did right before the bug happened (i.e. you clicked on a dress and suddenly everything malfunctioned.)
- If you got stuck at a chapter and or important clients, please let me know which chapter and which character you are on.

When you're crashing (PC):
- Close down all other programs, restart your computer and try again. Still crashing? Unfortunately, Tailor Tales cannot run on your PC properly due, as it needs a higher spec PC to be able to run smoothly.

When you're crashing (MAC):
- Get Wine to emulate Windows and run Tailor Tales, because Mac doesn't like it when Tailor Tales tries to overwrite files.

I was wondering if the the game automatically updates itself or do we need to download the new versions to update it?

Thank you for playing!

Because Tailor Tales is still in the beta stages, that means each release will have something new or removed from the previous version. Old save versions won't work and you'll have to start a new game (you will lose your designs). I will always leave an option for beta players to begin a new release with some extra gold and exp, and with all of the previous chapters unlocked. But your designs are lost.

When Tailor Tales reaches the official demo status, that's when updates won't be breaking your save file, and you won't be losing your progress anymore :)

I'm pretty close to an official demo!

OMG!! I cancan't wait for all of the characters to be available!! Im a sucker for otome games with a strong MC! i love her really, she's one of the fews that do something in regards to a problem and dont cower in fear.

7. Which character would you like to be available next? Gotta say James i am a sucker for guys who ignored me and just dont care.. i should refelct on life lol.

8. How many fierce points and how many kind points did you get at the end of each route? All the way fierce like a cat.. I love cats maybe thats why Dimitri is appealing to me??

9. How much tailoring experience and gold did you end up having at the end? well like 8000 tailor expo and gold 6000

Thank you so much ! i had so much fun !

Aww, it makes me happy you had fun playing this game - it's what my goal is in the first place; making people enjoy playing the game :)

Thank you so much for playing the game and leaving feedback! Chapter cost will be adjusted a bit in the next update, so that if you switch characters, it doesn't completely skyrocket.

yes thank you!! like i told you i am a sucker for good games and this is real good especially the makeout scenes... :3

Would you interested in eroge scenes? There's a few that requested I go further than kissing, even Meli wanted them haha.

omg !! yes please!! maybe give a choice to view or not but yes totally !! omg that will be hooot!

I can't wait for your next update!! This game is really awesome. This game got me hooked up, really. Thank you so much for this game and more power to you!!

1. What is your gender and age? Female, 18
2. Where did you find out about Tailor Tales? Crunchyroll
3. Is the art style appealing to you, or did it take some convincing? The art style is lovely; absolutely wonderful!
4. Which (available) character is your favourite? Ohemgee this one's a hard one. I've always loved tsunderes like Neil so at first he is the character that perked my interest out of the two. And I dont usually go for shy guys like Dmitri but Dmitri is sooo cute! And as i play more I've realized I fell in love with Dmitri's character harder.
5. What's your favourite scene? Everytime either of the two gets all flushed. To be specific, with Neil, I loved the scene where he was acting such a tsundere when he and the MC were taking a selfie. With Dmitri, it's when he ran out of the kitchen since he was greatly embarassed. Adorable
6. What's your favourite CG? Neil and the MC's selfie, so far and dare I say their *ahem* make out scenes as well
7. Which character would you like to be available next? This is another hard one. Heard you're planning to put either Caine's or Jager's route next, and i love both of them so i think either of them will be wonderful. But if I really have to pick one (which is real hard, btw)  i think I'll have to pick Caine <3 
8. How many fierce points and how many kind points did you get at the end of each route? In both routes, I don't have any kind points as far as I can remember. All of my points go to fierce.
9. How much tailoring experience and gold did you end up having at the end? Can't say since I've always been having trouble when it comes to saving my game. For instance, I left Neils's route at chapter 17. But when I opened the game again and pressed continue, it asked me if I'd like to return to 00:00:13. Right then and there my gold was reset.
10. Was it difficult getting gold to purchase the chapters, or was it easy? Moderate. There are times where it's getting frustrating though especially as the story advances, the price gets higher and higher
11. Was it difficult re-creating garments that were important clients? I.e. the masquerade dress, Angela's dress, or the opera dress. Not really
12. Favourite aspect of the game? Design, Characters' personality, designing clothes, music, the voice acting


First things first - there is no autosave!! You have to save the game yourself by clicking the settings icon, and clicking on the save icon. Then select 'save'. Essentially you played the game for 17 chapters and then forced a reset :(

I will try to address this issue in the next update so that players don't forget to save anymore.

Anyways, thank you for playing and giving your feedback! Happy to see Dimitri eventually won you over, despite him not being your type. Haha, I guess you like to be fierce every single time as well, torturing the poor boys. I'm the same though, I never pick the second option!

Seems a lot of people enjoy Neil's selfie CG as well. It was a pain to make because I redrew it like 5 times, but well worth the effort if people like it so much!

Surprised you found the game through Crunchyroll though, didn't know that there were discussions about Tailor Tales over there.
