Cracking: The Second Strain
by Cr4ck

TL;DR: This game is about a virus that turns people into voluptuous sex zombies against their will.

You're in control of a highly sophisticated virus capable of turning any man into a sex starved beast and any woman into a cock hungry slut within a matter of seconds. You will start of small, corrupting anything you can get your hands on but as your horde of oversexed servants grow you will move onto taking over small towns, cities, countries, continents and eventually the entire world and repopulate it with nothing but mindless slaves who can think of nothing but sex. The game mostly focuses on transforming other people around you against their will but does have some self transformation as well.

This game is a spinoff of the story "Cracking" over on CHYOA. If you would like to read it then head over here for more mass corruption goodness.

---

0.2.6

New/Updated Scenes: 

  • Mechanic - Changed building structure, no longer need to pick up oil to get Shift 
  • Hairdresser - No longer need to pick up the wax to get Hyper Spores 
  • Church -  Changed the quest to remove the backtracking back and forth between Sarah and the church, no longer need to finish the gold quest to get Possession 
  • Pub -  No longer need to get the booze to get Trojan 
  • HQ Lab - Added a new tab to the lab called "Upgrades"

Notes: 

All upgrades can now be purchased from the lab immediately, the plan is for the future to allow players to buy any upgrade of their choosing when they reach certain milestones in the chapter and thus be able to tailor their play through after their decisions a bit more. As such I’m looking to add more paths (as well as change existing ones) to almost every building in order to allow the player to get a different outcome/scene depending on which path they take.

Further down the line from that I would potentially like to add a panic system in the future, as some paths will be more loud than others which in return would cause more panic. Panic would essentially act as a “lose timer” to put some pressure on the player and add a real "lose condition" to the game where if it reaches 100% the game is over. As stated already panic will increase whenever the player infects a building by a % depending of the size of the scene caused. You would also be able to reduce panic by infecting certain influential humans such as town officials, priests or the people in the radio station with possession and using them to influence the general public by brushing the problems caused by the virus under the rug, denying that it exists and so similar. 

---

0.2.5

New/Updated Scenes: 

  • Rewritten several house intros so to allow the player to have some idea of the people occupying each house (Referring to the common houses found throughout the town, not notable ones like the fire station for example)

---

New/Unlocked Scenes:

  • Town square orgy
  • Sarah sex scene
  • Chapter 2 ending sex scene (optional)

Other Changes:

  • New unit: The Matriarch

Notes:

Version 0.2.0 now allows for a full proper play through of all of chapter 1 as well as chapter 2 however this doesn't mean that chapter 2 is completely done, only the "shell" has been completed. I'm still looking to implement improvements to the existing scenes, multiple paths and ways to infect various locations, a couple more mechanics and of course more images.

Edit: I accidentally forgot to update the version watermark in the game so it will still say "0.1.24" on the sidebar, however this is strictly visual and shouldn't impact the game play at all.

---

0.1.24

New/Unlocked Locations:

  • The Town Council

Other Changes:

  • The structure of the Anderson's residence has been changed for better flow as sort of an "experiment". I'm planning on changing all buildings to use this new structure over time as it allows me to easily add multiple ways of infecting each building as well as integrate a few new mechanics I've been working on

Bug Fixes:

  • Images should now always load in at the correct size

---

0.1.23

New/Unlocked Locations:

  • The Atrium
  • Rewrote the scene in the Zimmer residence to be more extensive

Other Changes:

  • The "name scan" ability now gets automatically picked up in the introduction to chapter 2 rather than once you infect the lab
  • I've started updating the naming structure in the game to give better clarity to the player who's talking during dialogue. Before humans were either tagged as their name, their profession or simply as "Man 1" or "Woman 2" etc. Now all future humans will be tagged as "Name (Title)". For example where before it would either say:

    Kate: "Dialogue text" (If you knew the name)
    or
    Daughter: "Dialogue text" (If you didn't know the name)

    Now it will say:

    Kate (Daughter): "Dialogue text"

    And since the name scan ability is now given at the start of chapter two, no humans after that point should be unknown to the player. All dialogues have not been updated yet though and I will continue updating the old ones in the background over the coming updates.

---

0.1.22

New Imagery:

  • The Broodmother imagery in the "Cracked Types" tab has been updated

Other Changes:

  • The Broodmother biology has been altered to go along with the new art, as such multiple areas and descriptions have been updated in accordance with these changes

Bug Fixes:

  • The police station will now be properly marked as infected after infiltrating the building and corrupting everyone inside

---

New/Unlocked Locations:

  • Town Hall - Large office

(Both require you to have dealt with the police first)

Other Changes:

  • Removed the "legacy sex scenes" tab as all scenes have been properly rewritten back into the game now
  • "Humans infected" has been changed to "Infected humans"
  • Humans that's been infected through buildings will now also increase the amount of "Infected humans", not just the total amount of infected. Cracked birthed by Broodmothers will still not increase the "Infected humans" however.

Bug Fixes:

  • The upgrades requiring Oil, Wax and Booze should now be displayed properly on the laboratory screen (They were inverse before)

---

0.1.20

 New/Unlocked Locations:

  • The Cinema

Other Changes:

  • Reduced the Forcer's horde strength to 10 from 3
  • Reduced the Broodmother's horde strength from 10 to 5
  • The "Horde Overview" tab is now unlocked at the start of chapter two. There you can see a detailed breakdown of all the units currently in your horde as well as their combined strength.
  • "Humans infected" is now it's own stat and is not increased by infected birthed by your Broodmothers. It's ONLY increased by actually infecting humans yourself.

---

0.1.19

New/Unlocked Locations:

  • Police station part 3 (Final)

Other Changes:

  • The Mansion has been replaced with a Cinema in preparation for 0.1.20

---

0.1.18

New Imagery:
  • "Forcer" in the "Cracked Types" tab
  • You can now see how you look in the "Status" tab

New/Unlocked Locations:

  • Police station part 2

Other Changes:

  • The Forcers have changed a bit in design to better fit the imagery now added to the story, as such a large amount of scenes and descriptions have been changed to accommodate for these differences. (Also if you find any that I've forgotten to change then let me know ASAP as I might've missed one or two :S)

---

0.1.17

New/Unlocked Locations:
  • The Post Office (Stealth path)

Other Changes: 

  • You now get a summarization of how much your horde has grown each time you hibernate so you don't need to manually add up all the numbers from your infected buildings. This makes it a lot easier to gauge your progress especially once you've infected a large number of buildings later in the chapter.

---

0.1.16

New Imagery:
  • "Infected/Common Cracked" in the "Cracked Types" tab

New/Unlocked Locations:

Other Changes: 

  • The Symbiote has been added as one of the units in the "Cracked Types" tab

New/Unlocked Locations:

Other Changes:

  • All upgrades and quest paths will now be done directly from the lab rather than the “Tips/Upgrades” section to prevent quest overlapping. This allows for more freedom in choosing which building to infect next and should also fix the bugs that occured for example when trying to infect the church before the radio tower
  • The " Tips/Upgrades " tab has been renamed to "Tips and rumors" to accommodate for the change
  • Once the Broomdmother gets unlocked new trivia related to the unit type will be available from Sarah

Bug Fixes:

  • The trivia tab should now work properly again

  • The Smith Residence
  • The Hospital 
Bug fixes:

Review by CowTits

Version reviewed: 0.2.21 (Public) on 07/25/2019


Pretty fun and entertaining game. Love a lot of the mechanics and the relative freedom of choice in how to tackle objectives in what order with areas being harder or easier depending on how you decide to tackle things. Actually, enjoy it more than Parasite Infection, a game with a similar theme, by a lot. The gameplay is solid and the art is top-notch. The writing gets a little monotonous at times, that I started skipping some scenes as they started blending together after a while. Another minor complaint is travelling back to HQ is tedious after each day. If I have to go back after doing one thing each day then at least make it fast and convenient. 

 

I'm usually not into 'mind-break' type stuff but I still rather enjoyed this. Hopefully, we get more options for symbiotes, later on, to kinda alleviate that at least a little. Micro-managing and checking in with more actual people would be both nice and more fun. I also hope, that with the end of chapter 2, that we can customize ourselves a bit somewhat. Even if it's just changing sizes of a few things.

 

Definitely give it a play.

The games theme and writing is decent, I like the hyper sexualised characters! I find that moving around the city during that phase is quite tedious, and having to go back tot he HQ to hibernate is also a bit of a pain and it could do with a quick travel button on the side. I feel like this game has a lot in common with parasite infection and if you like one, you'll like both
