The Pink Zone + Subway system

Pink Zone, Pink District. Customers gather outside a popular business in the area.

I've been working on City areas to explore, and a rail network to take you between stations.
As cool as the whole mechanics of the trains running are- pulling into stations, loading and unloading, announcements, Tokyo-style theme songs unique to each station, getting underway again- I'm sure waiting ¬10 seconds between trains will rustle a few jimmies, so as usual with the simulationist aspects, I'll add an option to switch it off, instant travel or something.

The stations, in one cumbersome picture file because trying to arrange multiple pictures on blogger would make a saint rage uncontrollably.

Update: Pinsaro+

Hey, it's been a month since I posted here, apologies.

Here's a small preview of what I've been working on for the last week and the work I did the week before.

Last week:
Added new menu, which I'll soon be polling for options I can add based on your experience with the demo and other games.
Started work on a new way of handling music, and some new tracks to go with that.
Added a new mini game to represent work, which I think is pretty fun and addictive- this will get its own post soon!

This week:
Started work on the city outside of the player apartment and office settings. First up is the as-yet-untitled "Pink Salon".
For anybody not aware, these are establishments that exist in Japan and other countries, essentially blowjob bars, and I thought it'd make a cool replacement for the VCR system of revisiting unlocked scenes shown in the demo.

So maybe once you unlock a new scene with a new Heroine, a new performer will start at the club. Are they perhaps cyborgs filled with the extracted data of your previous conquests? Find out more later!
