Beta? I hardly know her! 
Damn, that joke was BAD. But hey, on a day such as this, nothing can bring me down. It’s time for our beta release of Leah’s new story! 
This one is a very special release because there’s some gameplay additions that’ll change the way House Party is played. No longer are you just a meatbag for Frank to pummel. Because starting today, you can FIGHT BACK! 
Combat has arrived to House Party! On top of being able to just throw hands, you’ll also have a health meter and a level of strength (not shown as a meter). All the other party goers have their own unique levels of strength, from wimps to heavy hitters. Sure, you start out weak, but there are ways to improve your fighting ability–specifically by completing Leah’s newest content. 
And speaking of content, there is a LOT dropping with this beta release. Inspired by KILL BILL and other stories of revenge, Leah’s story will take you on a journey of redemption or vengeance. And boobs. And it all starts by finding a secret pet that’s been living in the house…and unleashing it. 
Lot’s of fun stuff here! Have fun playing it, and breaking it! You guys are awesome.

(Beta 9/10/19)

Tweaked and optimized fighting mechanics
Exposed various combat-related parameters to the Custom Story Creator
Fixed an issue with items mounting in weird positions when they are mounted twice in a row to the same NPC
Fixed an issue with NPCs not being able to open the closet doors in the art room
Added combat movement animations to the player
Tweaked the combat UI
The IKReach game event and IKReach Console Command can now be used to direct a character’s hands, hips, or feet towards a movetarget or character, in addition to interactive items
When a character IKReach-es for another character, they will target the secondary character’s chest
TriggerBGCs that are initiated while an NPC is ALREADY knocked out will now play as long as that NPCs “pass out” sound effect is not currently playing
The Player character now has its own KnockBack Character Function(edited)
When using the Player : Inventory : Remove game event, the item that is removed/drops will now use the Continuous Dynamic collision detection mode, similar to other events on the backend like throwing, etc. This more aggressive collision detection mode should help some with certain items being kicked through floors, etc.
Refactored a number of items’ collision detection modes and code to prevent kinematic rigidbody and collision detection mode error spam and small number of standalone warnings
Added another Phone item to the game
The vibrator now has a very-relevant-and-not-at-all-made-at-home-with-things-the-developers-touch sound effect available
InteractiveItems can now have their Audio playback stopped via the StopAllAudio ItemFunction
Pretty sure you all wanted this: added the PokedByVibrator Event Trigger. Right? Hello? AM I ALONE IN THIS HIVE OF BEES?
Enabled the vibrator’s “Clitpocalypse” setting…
