Sunlight Empire is not dead. It's not even on hiatus. I cannot tell you when the game will be updated, only that it will. I face multiple challenges in continuing the game, and most of it comes down to my own lack of technical ability.
The way I see it, new chapters of SE will be released after I am done with my new project (to be announced soon). I am going to use this project to really figure out the style of stories I want to do. Thank you all for the positive responses you have give this project. SE lives!
Note: Use the itch.io link to download the game. It's free.
Assume the role of X, an alien plant lifeform who one day wakes up on Earth with no memories and a directive to subjugate the planet's population for its master's eventual arrival.
SE is an adult-oriented interactive novel with light strategy/management elements.
This will be a largish project, spanning across multiple chapters. I will strive to update the game every 3-4 weeks.
CHAPTER 3 IS OUT!
A note about choices: I strive to have choices have meaningful impact on the story. The outcome of your choices might not be apparent until many chapters later.
These are not just limited to the actual choices the player clicks through, but also what the player chooses to do (or not to do). For example, choosing to not complete mission objectives almost always has repercussions, usually in form of bad/joke ends (Nier: Automata style).
I'm a big fan of ARG (Alternate Reality Game) and will post clues to the various mysteries within the game on an almost daily basis so keep tuned in!
PLEASE REPORT ANY BUGS/GRAMMAR/SPELLING MISTAKES YOU FIND.
The game is currently in early alpha stage which means:
YOUR SAVES ARE ALWAYS COMPATIBLE WITH NEW VERSIONS.
PLEASE ASK FOR MY PERMISSION IF YOU WANT TO POST MY GAME ANYWHERE ELSE.
You can download the game for free or alternatively buy me a cup of coffee (through itch.io's pay what you like option).

I really enjoyed this game for the short while it was active. I truly hope the creator comes back to this project, as it is still one of the projects on this site I would like most to see finished. Please give Sunlight Empire a chance and show it support so that the creator might return to working on it.
Very hot. I'm a huge fan of the direction this story is going, and the sex scenes present are very well done. Even before you get to the sexy bits, it's a fun game! I'd like to possibly see things like different paths for growth such as specializing in pheromones/spores or tentacles, or maybe defensive/survival mechanisms vs offensive/reproductive mechanisms. So far it's more so "wrong choice vs. right choice" rather than "choice A vs. choice B" which I'm not a fan of.
Great writing, interesting scenario and point of view.
The ending of chapter 3 is however quite graphic, be warned. For me at least it was too much.
I rarely write reviews and instead do when there's something out of the ordenary, and oh boy this one does.
great concept, with a simple and short but exciting game mechanic.
Avoiding spoiling anything i'll simply say this, i personally recommend this, its great and especially if you look for something a little different then the usual, but still want all the good action involved!
"i hope we get more of this" 9/10!
A very interesting game that I want to see more of.
