Can this game switch to other languages?

Why'd it have to end there. XD I wanted to see more!


Great job with the update!

I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL!!!  OMG!!!!   x3
Thank you so much for playing this month's update Bobby; hope to see ya for the next one  =3

Oh, you will. I really enjoy this story.

(+1)

that was so mean! just kidding , but ending the update with the 4th wall tease? nicely done !

loved the update, it awakened the butterflies . 

(+1)

Many thanks man! I'm glad you liked it. And well, I like cliffhangers so there's a lot of that between updates as well ^_^ 

(+1)

thx for the updates as always UWU

(+2)

Howlies!
You're welcome Miaw10!  Thank you for playing HoB   x3

(+1)

does this game have a guide pr routes anything?

(+2)

Hey wolf star long time no talk I just had a weird feeling about another visual novel you work on I know I put this there but hard to go searching for it s i n s and Paradise I was starting to question if you're ever going to go back to it it's fine if you don't and just really like Wolf star and hyper which by the way I'm still surprised when you going to the maze portion of the story to get into Wonderland their prison that doesn't show the picture of hyper on his phone when asking is this the man you love

(+3)

Howlies silverwilde,
Trust me, you've nothing to worry about with Sins and Paradise, I'm still creating monthly updates on Patreon.  Public builds are returning soon to itchio too.  I'm so glad to hear that you've enjoyed playing that visual novel.  I'll have to revisit that Wonderland maze for the Hyper phone picture.  Thank you for the message!   =3

(+1)

Okay I just found it really interesting that the question just showed Wolf star looking at his phone

(+2)

Why can't itch.io download it?Can I only download it on the website?

When installing, this message "Risky app blocked House of Beef This app is designed for an older version of Android and does not include the latest privacy protections Installing this app may put your device at risk. Learn more about Play Protect. Install anyway", and then "As the app is not compatible with your smartphone, it was not installed.". My cell phone is a Galaxy A14 5G (SM-A146M/DS). What is the solution to this problem?

(+1)

Hi, apologies if this has already been asked, but the android apk file for the game won't download. It keep rejecting it stating that it is "not compatible woth your device". I've tried everything I can think of but it still won't download the new update for the game. Despite it having never been an issue before. Was curious if there's a solution or way to download the new update without issues of such.

(+1)

For Android users

I tried downloading it 2 times, and the last moment when you download it to your phone, just stay there (chrome download) and don't disconnect from the internet and wait. 

P/s I just downloaded the game  and hope you can also download it.  If you follow along and still can't download it, I'm very sorry

(2 edits) (+1)

i am unable to download on the itch.io app on PC

(+1)

Howlies NovaKittyOwO,

We apologize for any inconvenience, however there seems to be a solution.
From a user who goes by the name of 3hoursonly:
"You can still download it via the ITCH website. (Take the url from the bar in the itch client and access the itch page of this game in your browser."

Please let us know if this resolves the problem.

(+1)

Can do, and im definitely willing to go that route.

the only issue with that however is that id have to start a new game from scratch. Downloading from the website vs the app, has the issue of saves not carrying over. the app creates a file specific for those saves, but ive never figured out how to take the new update from the website and force the itch.io app to use the new update.

for now, ill download anyhow off the website, but please do let me know if you discover a way to resolve the issue with the App and this most recent update.

(+1)

The game can't be updated automatically because the platforms are not set for each file. That's something the developers have to do for each new version.

the platforms for the *-pc.zip file are windows and linux, android for the apk file and apple for the -mac.zip file.


Meanwhile,  to transfer your saves from the old to the new version, you can copy the game\saves folder into the new version folder.

(+2)

All of them so hot :>

(+3)

As some others stated, the download wont finish on Android. It gets flagged as forbbiden at the last minute.

(+1)

When will this game release a new update? I'm waiting so long for new update!

(+3)

Howlies Voibei,
We update the public build once a month; at this time our next release date will approx be on March 13th.  Thank you for the support and for trying out our game   =3

(+1)

Thank for reply! I'll waiting 💙✨

(+1)

I still can't install this game on my phone, it will suddenly quit during installation

(+1)

The reason for most of these problems is that the APK file size is too big.  Newer versions of the game updated over the next few months should be smaller.  My apologies for any troubles.

(+1)

我仍然无法在手机上安装此游戏,它会在安装过程中突然退出

(+1)
大多数这些问题的原因是APK文件太大。未来几个月更新的游戏新版本应该会更小。对于任何麻烦,我深表歉意。
(1 edit) (+1)

i cant open the game. i play on pc and it says they cant open it bc the house of beef.exe file is missing...

(+1)(-1)

Howlies Aron:3,
Hmmm, that's a very odd situation; it maybe resolved by deleting the update and re-downloading the files.  Please let us know if this helps or if the problem remains unresolved.

(+1)

After playing for a long time. I still can't find the replay scene from the Oscar show... it's very difficult 😭😭. And I like the games!

(+3)

When I try to update the app it says that its not compatible. Maybe its because I have android 14?

There's also the chance that the game size is too big to launch.  We have reduced the overall size of the game for the latest Patreon builds (versions 66 and 67).

(+1)

I really enjoyed this story, well I was enjoying it until all of a sudden it just stops and the credits appear on screen, and not just stops but stops in a weird place, I understand you haven't finished it yet but it was just  a shock  to all of a sudden end at that point  in the story. I hope the rest comes out soon 

(+4)

This is one of the only games I really enjoy. Big, beefy studs all over the place- it's like a dream for me lol. 

(+2)

Howlies TaylerXJoshua,
There'll be plenty more huge thick massive beefy hunky studs on the way!   Thank you for playing our game   =3

Hello, does anyone know how to unlock this image/scene? I would appreciate it very much. (Edit: Sorry, I was wrong, it was just an image/scene.)


(1 edit) (+3)

Having the same problem as the other commentors. Try to install and get to staging app and then an error message saying the package parsing isn't working.

phone: Galaxy s20

(+3)

Good news, it's likely not your phone that's the issue.  For many devices, the limit on apk sizes is 2GB; our game is just too big to run on the phone.  We've explored and trimmed the file size in the latest build to under 2GB on Patreon this month (version 66).  We'll see how it runs and hopefully get good feedback.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

(+1)

For some reason my phone always says it's "staging app" when downloading and won't ever actually install or open this. It's the only VN on here doing this so idk what you did different. It's really upsetting these guys look great but I can't do anything

(+2)(-1)

There maybe something that can still be done, but  I'll require more information.  Can you tell me more about the updated phone you are attempting to launch our game on?  Which company made it?  Which model is it?  Year the phone was released?  Which APK launcher you are using?

(+1)

It's a Google pixel 7 pro. I'm not using any special apk launcher as the installation doesn't even finish for me to attempt to open it there is always a problem just with this specific VN. Others open as soon as the download is complete so I'm really not sure what's different here

Ive downloaded several apk launchers and still cant access it. This seems to be the only VN I cant view/support? Am I SoL? Can anyone give me some tips before I just give up on HOB

Andriod galaxy s21 ultra  

I'm using its most basic launcher for everything else but when it comes to HOB I tried installing multiple apk installers. All of which said the same about HOB not being compatible. It's odd as this is the only project that doesn't seem to work on andriod. I feel I should have posted this to the discord but to see so many others having the same problem meaning it might not just be my phone says something. Was there something done to HOB that just doesn't allow newer models to see it all together? I'm lost and it doesn't make sense to me nor I'm sure to the others

Alright so second try and still the same issue with other apk installers and thr default one

(+2)

I updated my phone and the update for the game isn't compatible with my phone now

(+1)

You may need to install an APK launcher, a free app from Google Play.

(+2)

No i can't get it to install at all

(+1)

While I'm by no means a phone specialist, we may yet find a solution.  I'll need more information though.  Can you tell me more about the updated phone you are attempting to launch our game on?  Which company made it?  Which model is it?  Year the phone was released?  Which APK launcher you are using?

Que dia sai  versão 1.58

(2 edits) (+2)


hi guys i just recently finished the game and it was blast and right on time because of the what happened lol. i just want to say when and how do you guys got this missing pieces

(+2)(-1)

Let's see, the first lock is a scene that happens when Julian gives a vending machine soda to Oscar.  The next lock is a scene where Oscar tries to give Simon a back rub--you find this one while exploring the gym.  The last lock you get by clicking on Kurt's sprite at the boxing ring when Julian is thinking about taking more pictures.

Bro, adoro este juego, enserio. El renderizado de los personajes es muy bueno. La historia en buenísima y chistosa a la vez, lo cual lo beneficia mucho. Cuantas actualizaciones les quedan para terminar la historia en si? Saludos desde argentina.

Quando sai a versão 1.58 

(+2)

Nossa próxima versão pública será lançada na mesma época, em janeiro de 2024.

(+2)

is there something I’m missing? I’ve collected Julian’s  bag, camera, pen, laptop, and phone, am I meant to make him change? I can’t seem to figure out how

(+1)

Howlies Julover,
Did you pick up Julian's camera battery that is in between the envelopes on his shelf?

(+1)

I did not, thank you!

(+1)

You're welcome Julover, please let us know if you need any help in future; and thank you for playing our game  =3

(+1)

Realmente o Julian e o melhor protagonista de todos os vn

(+2)

Ficamos muito felizes em saber que você gosta do nosso tímido fotógrafo.

Ele bugando quando fica com vergonha é o melhor

Adoramos colocar nossos personagens em situações desconfortáveis e depois ver o que acontece a seguir.

Thank you for the feedback Draco the Enderwolf,
Yup, that's the infamous png format file that should've been jpg.  We haven't messed with this scene in quite a while, and it was functioning like normal.  Should be cleared up in a build or two.

(+1)

Hey, was curious - how often is the public build released here? Like every 2 weeks? once a month? 

(+1)(-1)

Yo! What is this?!! Which build is this? 

I guess there will be Star Trek scene again after this picture LOL


(+1)

Itsa spicy scene from the latest build on Patreon  =3

(+1)

Hello, I really like this VN but on day 4 I get an error and it doesn't let me continue with the rest of the story.

(+1)

Howlies ItsAlex130, sorry for any inconvenience to you in regards to this bug.  Can you give us any more information in regards to it?
Take any screenshots?

(+1)(-1)

                               publicación: cuerpo: texto esperado entre 1 y 20480 caracteres

(+1)

Umm well... this is what appears to me and it won't let me continue

(+1)

Righty-o, so it appears to be a background error where renpy is looking for a file type, but the pathway somehow got warped.  It's a strange bug because I haven't messed with this scene for quite a while, and last time it was functioning like normal.  I've compared the files on our end and the current build to verify, and they are for some reason not correct on the itchio build.  My apologies again for the inconvenience this bug has caused.  Please let me know if next month's free update has the same issue.

Same here, it's disappointing.

I'm getting the same error too:

Hello, I was wondering, how do you make a game like this? 

The decorations and 3d model are made of 0 or they are already existing? 

Anyway, i love this game, he's great.

Hello, the version 1.54 is recent
