Hey guys, I’m FoxBytez. I’m really into software development and sharing my, sometimes outlandish, ideas through the games I create. The dream is to forge a game studio capable of helping others follow their own aspirations. Whether it be art, animating, modeling, coding, story writing… there’s so much that goes into building games and I’d love to create a home for those passionate about their craft.
But that’s end game. The short term goal is being able to work on Uncommon Breed and similar games full time.
At the moment, I’m working on the RPG / Visual Novel, Uncommon Breed. In this game, your relationships affect both story and combat! Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to pick up a couple of well equipped mercenaries:
These two talented individuals have have helped me bring a new level of quality to the game and your support helps me pay for their art/services.
At the moment, I update the game at least once a month. If I’m ever able to work on it full time, you can expect 2+ updates a month.
More than a visual novel
One of my core motivations for making Uncommon Breed was to learn the ins and outs of Unity (a Game Development Engine) with the intent of making more interactive/complex games in the future. This is why Uncommon Breed has and will continue to evolve as I take what I learn and apply it to the game. Examples of this are:
A segmented dating world in which you can travel between multiple rooms and have brief conversations with the main characters. These conversations affect their affection towards you, the story, and the combat.
RPG style, turn based combat system with your relationships affecting combat. Did you say the right things to Grizz, the burly bear tank? His defense capabilities increased! What about Reinhard, the X Bounty Hunter? His shots are gonna start hitting really hard!
In the works! Quests will mainly come from the PUB.
Get plopped into the shoes of a developing hero character and bring together a band of outlaws to save your home. Strengthen your personal relationships and find that strength translates into your battles together. Get to know and romance them but be wary of leaving the strength of your other teammates behind!
My Patreon page is set up with the Charge Up Front (CUF) model.
This means New patrons will be charged when they first sign up.
If you pledge late in the month, say the 28th, you’ll be charged on the day you sign up and the beginning of the next payment cycle (the 1st of every month). This makes it best to pledge at the beginning of the month to avoid being charged back to back.
This is patreons way of helping alleviate content theft and helps your exclusive rewards remain exclusive!
Current patrons are unaffected.

Can someone tell me when will this game update and the game update schedule please?
This game had potential, but considering they expect you to pay for it, the updates are ridiculous slow (2 months often between updates) and in that time they only produce about 5 minutes of extra game play. And after two years from the initial publishing date, they still haven't even made it to a proper sex scene yet. By the time they get there, we'll need viagra just to enjoy the game.
I agree but the guy making this won't respond to actual criticism the game needs more content and less gameplay also really only 1 mb of a update seriously really getting the blackgate levels of update now
Just got to the current end of one of the paths. I'm so excited to try the others and for more content. I think combat is one of my favorite parts of the game. It's challenging but fun. My only issue is there's no text log to look back on if I do a misclick, but frequent saves can prevent that so it's not too big a deal. Can't wait to see future updates, keep up the good work!! Thank you for the great game
I really like the concept for this game. However, it has a few problems that bothered me a bit, such as several parts of the dialog having double words (yes, it's a simple mistake, but happens way too many times), the unbalanced battle system where, for some weird reason, one of the characters deal 200 dmg while the others are dealing 3-6, and what annoyed me the most was how I found myself wanting to punch the characters a few times for their inconsistency of behavior. In one moment they are telling you that you can do it and ou are cool and the next they are calling you a kid and treating you like a bother. There's no plot development whatsoever and the fact that the enemies are mostly shown as nothing but a black silhouette even though the MC sees them clearly and describes what they look like, feels lazy. Also, would be cool if the MC actually had a face
I can answer one of your concerns, at least. The “one character does more damage“ bug is a feature. Depending on which route you choose that love interest will deal more damage in battle.
I used to be a patron of his, but it's true, there's too few content (character development especially) for each route, in one year of updates even, and not much of it either.
I wonder if this is turning into another soap opera aka Blackgate. I hope not for everyones sake...
I also wish the MC had a face. Would make everything happening seem less distant and more real instead. But if they create one he hopefully isn't human! (One of the reasons I don't really like EA. I'm glad Stormsinger fixed that with Morenatsu Homecoming.)
What is your favorite character?
The problem with that "feature" is that it renders all the other characters, including the MC, pointless in combat because that one character will one shot every single enemy. It's dumb and boring.
I haven't played Morenatsu Homecoming yet
As for your question, I don't really have a favorite character because I didn't really enjoy any of the love interests, but if I had to pick the one that annoyed me the least, I'd say Gear or the Bartender dude.
I never experienced that an attack of my love interest, Gear, killed anyone instandly.
Morenatsu Homecomeing is not finished at all, so waiting on that is okay. Morenatsu on the other hand is finished for a long time.
Ah, I see, well Gear is my favorite too. I like characters like him the most anyway, but my favorite character of any VN I played so far is Tyson (Password). He is the bad boy of this world.
Do you have a favorite visual novel then?
I REALLY enjoy Human Cargo. Specially Zed and the Captain paths. It has the right amount of sentiment and kinkiness that suits my tastes haha. I also enjoy Lagoon Lounge and am currently following Tavern of Spear.
You haven't played many yet, I assume.
I played an earlier version of Human Cargo and quite liked it. Funny, I played these routes aswell.
Lagoon Lounge is already on my long list, as is Tavern of Spear. There are older games like Nekojishi I want to play first.
This game has potential, but it has some pretty big flaws. Story and Combat are big ones, but I feel that story is more important in the long run. The biggest problem is there is basically no pacing or real world building. its hard to get invested in the characters when the world and threat that is being faced has little development outside what is important for the character specifically. Just a little bit of non important world building would really help make the world feal more real and the quest more important. Pacing is another problem as you go from a cruel but mistaken mage that shows how in danger the town is, to not long after finding yourself in the middle of enemy lands with little build up. outside of these, there are other issues too, but they arent as important.
Hope you don't mind that I looked at your profile. You seem like a smart guy. and I totally agree with your complains, that's why.
Well, I see you are pretty new. Are you interested in other (gay) visual novels? You propably already know about a bunch anyway, but do you know like 50? ;)
Your profile doesn't tell much...
I'm using Itch.io
but Mac update itsn't working(still 14.0.0 ver)
The Mac update isnt working whatsoever
Hey, what version are you running. 15.0.0 or 15.0.4?
15.0.4, my mac says "the application '15.0.4" can't be opened." and thats literally it.
What MacOS Version are you running?
MacOS 10.15 and newer don't support 32-Bit-Libraries anymore.
Maybe the Devs might need to take that into consideration when "baking" the MacOS Version in Unity.
Cheers and hope it gets fixed.
I was patron, but the slow pacing story for each route every couple month is...
I think it's a pity that the developer stopped releasing public updates...
Well, it's only kind of true. After all not many people would like supporting as much as with'em.
I was patron, but stopped being one, after a while, when I realized only one route receives an update per month.
Needs more content each update takes way to long and the amount of content doesn't match the time it takes for a new update it feels like a black gate situation while I'll say there more content per update in this then black gate (and that's not saying much) there needs to be more. In all honesty I think you should drop the fighting mechanics all together if that's where your attentions is cause the days are way to short and rushed it's hard to feel a connection to the characters when there's so little content
with the newest version, every time after I finish the first battle, the game goes to a Juleon loading screen. The bar fills up and nothing happens. Clicking and pressing space and enter doesn’t work. Also the saving system is really really inconvenient especially if you’re trying to run multiple routes at once.
Honestly the game feels really shaky in terms of quality. The art is great, but the UI design and overall mechanics feel like low quality. Its really easy to make the game bug out, and the UI system is a maze all on its own sometimes. The conversation system, atleast thats what I assume it is seems super out of place in how its used. I was in the middle of being "killed" and I pressed a flashing beer mug next to my screen ands suddenly we were all drinking and talking, like. IDK this game just feels so unfinished.
is there a free to play version? I find this game absolutely beautiful.
Sadly I can't buy it
This update won't open
I like the game but i have issues with the saving for example scrolling through 20 pages of save file too find where you left off from the previous build it can be a real headache going to your last save.
Will definitely buy if i ever see it on steam. Cool game from the looks of the demo
yeah I wold love to see this on steam as well. along with a lot of other games on here.
In order to be on steam, it has to meet some requirements that would put restrictions on what this game can show and do. It would likely end up being another NekoJishi situation where the game IS on steam but the steam version is heavily revised and all NSFW content is completely removed, the story re-written slightly so as to keep it "appropriate"
I beg to differ, ElevatorVibes, since Steam does support NSFW content now as I have seen on the FREE Game "Blood and Lust" which included a NSFW Scene on the path I was playing through it.
Also you can now chose in the Preferences in Steam whether or not you want to include Games, that Show Adult Erotic/Sexual Content or not.
So, I think this should be no problem, unless other requirements prevent Game Developers from uploading their Games there (would be interesting to know which ones that might be then?).
Cheers and enjoy the cool Games on here and Steam.
Loved the game , loved the character styles and personalitie and the battle system is fun. But something that annoyed me is that the "save" button only autosaves... i wish there was a way to overwrite save files so i don't have to scroll around tons of save data to find the one i want. And if there is a way already, my bad, just please teach me how :).
Is there any way to buy this game besides using a paypal account or credit card? I would love to download this if we have those things..
Curious: it tells me new chat options are at the pub yet, all I get is bye. Did I do something wrong?
will the full game be available to play for free for android?
Um I'm having playing in general like I start a new game get to the tutorial part then after the crazy flower guy appears it just crashes pls explain?
I really want to see more of grizz. And hope for real sex scenes, not black screens.
Also I would like to see the option to create our own custom character(the player).
Hi. What should I do? At day 9, a text message disappears with a Grezz conversation and nothing else happens.
Looking alright so far.
I hope you'll soon add an identity to the player character, so that he's not just a heart icon in combat. On top of that it'll open up the possibility of adding more art, so far it's all VN portraits. Trust a thirsty guy when he says more saucy stuff will help you with getting more support.
The game was apparently uploaded 7 months ago, makes me wonder how long it'll take for you to complete it, given how far I could go with the paid version... I mean I haven't gotten to seeing anyone hard yet and a lot of NPCs don't have an appearance.
Hello, if I buy the game, do I have access to the future update or will I have to pay again to get them?
so we waited a month for 2mb of content.... Are you becoming blackgate
Add sex mini game where u actually have to stroke and touch one of them in special places to get them aroused and make them cum.
When's the next update I'm hanging on a cliffhanger
Greetings. Recently purchased but I had no idea the game would be as in-depth as it is. Would love to support more financially now that I've caught up to where you are in development. This project is wonderful!
Edit: I subscribed to your Patreon ❤️
whats the Name of the polar bear at day 5????? I have 30 seconds for the answer
It would be really cool to have almost like a character creation system. In the begining when i was following the rein route i thought there was one because the player picked up the carved statue and i thought the game was gunna "ask" the player what to look like. And if the player were to say or think something, a small sprite of the players head would appear next to the text box and show various emotion. Would be cool and maybe add more complexity to the story by showing, as what the sims call it, woohoo scenes that actually have the player in it.
Hello, I'm really enjoying the game so far and can't wait for more. I bought it 2 months ago and have been playing it fine until today. It puts me into the demo and I can't access the regular game at all. I uninstalled but it only gives me the option to download the demo. Not sure where to go from there lol. Thank you.
Edit: Fixed it by visiting itchio website and downloading the zip instead playing it from the itchio app.
Hello FoxBytez, I wanted to inform you that I've downloaded your recent update (android) and it won't let me get pass de class selection. I've already installed and unistalled the game many times but it won't let me get pass that point. I have also erased everything and re-download it again many times. I would appreciate if you could help me out. I really want to play your game and give all the support that I can give you also from want I could play, the game is beautiful and full of potential. Thank you for dedicating your time in reading this. I wish the best of luck in all your proyects.
Hey, you mean it won't go past picking a class (lovemancer, ECT...) a bit into the game?
Yes. Once I pick the class and the screen goes to load to prepare for the fight. It won't load, it just crashes. Thank you for answering.
Hey, I'm looking into this. Is it if you choose any class? Are you using the start new game without tutorial button or the original start game button? Did it work previously (prior to this update were you able to get past this point).
It happens with any class, i'm using the start new game without tutorial button. And from the previous update, I couldn't get pass the 2nd fighting scene. It just didn't load.
Edit: So today I had the chance to play the game with the tutorial and it works. I can pick a class and fight, so if anyone has a problem with that, just re-do your game by playing from the begining but without skipping the tutorial.
P.S. It works with every class.
I have this game on Android. I died at the first fight against 2 enemies, then the save button got pressed on accident and lost all my progress and had to start over. I was just planning on rolling with autosaves but it seems that got overwritten on the you died screen. Maybe dont make it an option to save after a fight starts? The buttons are really small, the tip of my thumb is the size of two of them.
I like the game so far and I'll probably just restart it at some point. Kinda wish the rein NSFW scene was drawn out though :3
Can someone tell me where the location of the save files are?
Android wont go past the tutorial
