phanom12, that's awesome!!! I'm glad you had a great time!~ And glad Marie did, too ;D

MissedIt, I'm afraid you've ...erm... missed it! >_< Sorry, sorry~ But, yea, it was created with an old version of GameMaker Studio and is not able to be ported to the new version (I tried), which means that Android export ended back on either Android OS 4 or 5; I don't think it runs on any devices updated within the last few years! T_T

Pretty good game for the most part except that I hate card games. Also Erika is the cringy-est character in the whole game. But the quality of the game heavily compensates for the downsides.

Good game, I'd give it a 7/10. I guess dialogue sound doesn't fit a vore game. It's just too cringy to exist. Maybe that's just me though.

EngilbertSig3, glad you've enjoyed for the most part! Yea, it was going to be a simple 1-dealer game originally, so I didn't expect to have to grind through so many rounds of cards! >< Sound-wise, you can toggle the voice off at any time but yea, gotta do it each time you play Erika; sorry to hear it wasn't to your taste! :D

Hey! As a returning player (my computer went up in smoke, literally, and just recently got a new one) I have to say i enjoy the full game! Joined when it was just 3 working on four, and I really like the finished product! The voice work for the newest was good too, especially as i gulped her~

This is the best game ever. Anyone know of similar card/vore hybrid games out there?
ooh also, if someone were to draw up a bunch of images for a new dealer, how difficult/time consuming would it be to implement?

(as a side note, this game has unique meta-entertainment value in all the salty messages from plebs who don't know how blackjack works lmao)

MintyFrawg, thanks!! I'm sadly not aware of others at present, but I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Adding dealers at this stage would unfortunately be pretty tricky--I did make the game to be able to expand to any number of dealers in many respects, but the tool I used to package the program (GameMaker Studio version 1) reached end-of-life a year ago; software is no longer supported or available. The main difficulty is actually the game-over scenes! I initially figured it would be an image, but then the first dealer's artist did a series of images, and next thing you know, all dealers had little scenes with different numbers of images. Since each one was custom, I hand-coded the number of images to show and the animations and layer effects (unlike the rest of the game where there's a set number of dealer "expressions" for the game's various states) so that would be impossible to do without repacking the software!~ :( I'm working (very slowly) on new things, though!
(And, yeap! It's been a heck of a ride through gameplay mechanics ;D )

Robotdocter, http://stormingleech.com/assets/UBJ/blackjack4.sav
Download that file, and place it into the local appdata folder for the game.
--From your start menu, type %localappdata% and press enter (include the % signs)
--Locate the Blackjack4 folder and place this save file there, overwriting the existing file

The file provided is technically an impossible game--every dealer is unlocked and you have a record of 0 wins, 0 losses. ;D

So... I found a out how to cheat my way to near inevitable victory.

So Phase one. Buy a bunch of Steal, from the shop. Then loose a game for free as you are at 0 money. Then get into a game, and use all 5. Then quit, and relaunch and buy another 5 with your new starter money. Go into another match and use all 5. Then Quit and relaunch. Then use the money you got from steal to do it again.

That rips 750 out of the Dealer's bank account. Provided you can win just 1 hand you win.

That gibberish is the contents of the .sav file itself. You need to download that file (either by saving the link as a file, going to the page and saving it as a file, or just creating a blank .sav file on your computer and copying the displayed contents from the page into it), then move that file (must be named blackjack.sav, it could get renamed or get a different extension while downloading) into the Blackjack4 folder.

Having gone through all of them by now, I think Marie is probably my favorite dealer. Both to eat and be eaten by! Her design, the way she carries herself, not to mention the way she taunts the player. Top notch dialogue. Hoo boy. It's almost worth it to lose.
It's also equally satisfying to prove her wrong, watch that confidence turn to frustration and make a meal out of her.
On a similar note, I do like how it's pretty left up to the player as to what happens to the dealer after swallowing her.

Just found this. I like it quite a bit, although I do wish more of the girls had the full set of scenes when you lose: zooming in on the face, close up zooming into the mouth, going down the throat, and ending in the stomach. Also, I like how, when some of the girls are defeated, the last traces of them slide down until they're completely off the screen, as if showing them being completely swallowed. It would be nice of more of the girls did that. Also, among the various bits of dialogue (which are great, by the way) perhaps a few comments about how you've eaten a particular previous dealer could be added?

Out of the girls, my favorite is Raven, followed by Lexie, followed by Marie. After that comes Zan, then Erika, and then waaaaaaaaaay down into the "actively dislike" category comes Kosmo. Sorry, but her personality and certain aspects of her character design are very much not to my taste.

Judging from the front page, it looks like the last update was in 2016? So should I assume this is not an active project any more? A shame, if so.

No-One, thanks for the feedback--I appreciate your analysis! There are some bits about past dealers that've been eaten in there, but I think the feature to do that only was added late in development, around dealer 3 or 4 so it doesn't come up very often in the chosen lines. Unfortunate, but I didn't have the foresight to know I was going to do it at the time! Really happy to hear you've got 3 favorite ladies in there out of 6; they definitely represent a wide variety of personalities and attitudes about the casino and its ways (and about the player) so it's pretty awesome that there's several to connect with for you.

Development-wise, yeap, correct! As awesome as it would be to update forever and ever, there's quite a backlog of other projects I'd like to work on and honestly, after 6 dealers it was beginning to feel like the game's content was outgrowing its single gameplay element, so I cut off fundraising for new dealers, and all future donations from this project are going towards future project ideas. I took a sort of 2-year hiatus from "making" games after that to develop some game engine tools using what I learned from this game (and using all the things I wished I'd done differently), and I'm now slowly getting back underway with a new game--but that's not ready to announce yet, so for now Raven's going to have to suffice for dinner! ;D

Not much, but I think I credited everyone relevant.

So possibly I'm mis-reading or misunderstanding, but I was under the impression artwork could be unlocked at random by winning matches? I think I unlocked one, but have no idea how to access or see it; someone earlier mentioned it saves to the harddrive but my game appears to be an independent .exe and I can't find any folders related?

Otherwise absolutely fantastic game, I love every bit of it!

soline, yeppers!
Every program on a Windows computer technically gets its own folder for storing user-generated data, and I'm making use of that. Easiest way to get there is to open your Windows Start Menu and just start typing into seemingly nothingness. Type %localappdata% and press Enter. That special shortcut should open the "local app data" folder for your user profile.
(Usually it's somewhere like "C:\Users\<yourName>\AppData\Local", but the path changes from version to version of Windows and it's hidden sometimes...the shortcut should take you straight there)

Inside that folder, you should find many folders (probably) for various programs and games, including "Blackjack4". This was version 4 of the code! Inside there, you'll find the save file, application data packages, and--if you've unlocked them--the pictures! High res!!!!! You'll know you unlocked them alllllllllll when you get a "final pic" containing behind-the-scenes art from the development of the characters.
