    When Amorous v0.1 was first released back in October 2015, finding a place to host a massive game (700+ MB) which would potentially cause a lot of bandwidth, was hard and very costly. After searching and contemplating for a long time, we eventually found Scaleway, who allowed us to host our games for many years. Their service is great, so if you are tech-savvy and looking for a good cloud-based server solution, be sure to check them out, they have a full range of options these days!

    I can assure you this is not an advertisement that slipped through the anti-spam filter, but rather an announcement that Team Amorous is waving Scaleway goodbye. With Amorous moving to Steam, it would not be worth keeping additional download servers running at the same time.

    So with pain in my heart, I just killed the baby I have been working on/with for almost 2 years: the launcher. But admittedly for most the whole architecture behind it. It has been a labor of love and I'll be sure to put it to use one way or another soon, but that way won't be Amorous anymore. This posed a problem for Bare Backstreets and Fursona Maker however...

    Luckily, unlike a few years back, game hosting services are now popping out of the ground like mushrooms. I have therefore setup a few fancy looking itch.io pages for all of our games, including Amorous, as we wait for it to be ready for Steam.

    You can find them here:
    - Amorous
    - Bare Backstreets
    - Fursona Maker

    All the games are available as a direct download, but if you are already a user of the itch.io client you can also choose to install them through that.

    I have updated the "Play now" page to represent this change. Users of the launcher will get a notification when attempting to login the launcher is no longer in use and points them to this page.

    Quick question, is there a way to add our fursonas onto the new version? or do we have to make them again from scratch?

    Mac still requires the steps for the old launcher to run properly. For Windows you either have to browse to local files and run the game from there, or run itch.io client as admin.

    I keep getting errors whatever I try to run it whatever technique I use to do so, and I can't post anything on your forums because your system detects links where there are none. Oh and the CAPTCHA makes responding to errors absolutely obnoxious.

    Steam version is out since today (SFW), the more "naughty" (NSFW) version will follow sometime this week. See also: Click me, I'm a link!

    And btw: Will the save files from version 0.8.1 (itch.io) be usable in version 1.0 from the same source?

    Is this game still being updated and if so, are they going to add some more storylines?

    The Steam version can be NSFW too. Itch.io version will just be NSFW and Non-Steam by default, there is zero difference in files.

    Add a file called "ShowMeSomeBooty" in the root-folder of the game.

    I don't get the idea with the file addition to make the steam version NSFW - can't seem to find the root folder... :/
