Aww'right, what's new...!?
Over the weekend I released a new beta as mentioned earlier, v1.08.
So most of the work since last update has been to prepare for releasing that, but I've also been working on adding the next scene in the game which I consider a full scene.
It'll once again include the protagonist in the center of attention and we'll get to knock out another female character from the not-yet-plowed list. :D

But unfortunately, that is pretty much all the news I have to share for this time.
Next week I'll be introducing a minor character you probably already have encountered if you have beta access, although she was more or less a nameless NPC before...the farmer's daughter stereotype. ;3

And with that short update, I'll see you again next week!

Time to introduce a new character, Zweibelle!
Unfortunately, I can't really go much more into depth other than that as who or what she is would be a bit of a spoiler...so speculations, begin? x3

Anyway, this week has been spent on polishing the current build of the game and adding additional illustrations/trading cards with the intention of releasing the newest beta this week, yes indeedies!
That makes it v1.08 and should be out around the weekend. :3

But I'm afraid that's pretty much all the news I have for this Tuesday so I'll be seeing you again next week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Emoticon 16

I was going to showcase one of the new characters, but she wasn't finished in time so I'll fill out the blank between last tuesday and the next one with Kythe's adorable emoticon of all the peop...err, Magihounds!

But gaming wise everything has gone really smoothly, I've finished off another cutscene over the week so that the River Checkpoint now opens up naturally during the course of the story rather than magically getting rid of the knights so you can explore. xP

This also means the introduction of Naz'Raala is imminent and just around the corner with only a single cutscene left before I shift my attention and the storyline to the Arlon Farmlands region.

So naturally, I'll see you again next week as always!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Monthly Poll Results

"Hail to the update, baby!"

The monthly poll results are in again, and this time the question for July was which cosplay model people preferred so far, with "only" 983 votes gathered...dum-dum-duuuuum!

Gabrielle - 1st Candidate
Won with 269 votes, being 27% of the total.
Adult Farah - 1st Candidate
Came second with 158 votes, 16% of the total.
Teen Farah - 2nd Candidate
Scored third with 147 votes, 14% of the total.
Osira - 2nd Candidate
Came fourth with 100 votes, 10% of the total.
Illumi - 1st Candidate
Came fifth with 54 votes, 5% of the total.
Illumi - 2nd Candidate
Came fifth with 51 votes, 5% of the total.
Osira - 1st Candidate
Came fifth with 49 votes, 4% of the total.
Opala - 1st Candidate
Came in last with 34 votes, 3% of the total.

That is quite the difference gap between the first and the last position. x3

Aaaanyway, this week I've also spent entirely on storymode even though it feels like I'm getting nowhere, but that isn't true since I've finished the cutscene after Grand Bridge by now and only need to tweak a few lines before I'm completely satisfied.
With that, I can announce the next beta will be released this month and include a tiny bit more story content, more trading cards to unlock and possibly a new mini-scene to encounter!

So with that tiny update, I'll see you again next week with perhaps a new character preview!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Live-Action Preview

Phew, we're having a sweaty summer right now in Sweden!
But that seem to becoming the norm as the previous year or two were no better.

Anyway! I've regained my focus on the storymode for LoQO:O and have been working on that this past week, programming the next scene after leaving the Grand Bridge, but also going back to change and polish a few dialogues during the High Lord Gathering I wasn't entirely satisfied with.
And...err, that's about it really, but after this cutscene is over, the path over River Checkpoint will open up naturally according to the story, rather than be magically open from before since I wanted players to experience all the new areas beyond that point. x3

I was also thinking long and hard over what I should be previewing in this update...
And I decided to go with screenshot thumbnails of the first adult LoQO movie made, starring Playboy Playmate Angel Wicky as Illumi, with the scene called in a typical corny porn-name for "Illumi's Reward: A Backdoor to All the Answers"

This movie will be shared at the beginning of August to everyone pledging $20 or more, and will be a constant, monthly reward from now on, just like the latest beta has always been. :D

And with that, I'll see you next week when I'll be a year older!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - OST Sample 3

Sorry for the lack of pictures lately, but most of the emoticons, solo poses and battleposes I have left are highly classified spoiler material containing two females that'll show up for the first time within the game eventually. ;)
All I can really do is to inform you what I've been doing this week!
And yeah, all the time has been spent on the Encyclopedia to add the new locations and enemies included in the previous beta, along with making sure they're all listed correctly.
I've also updated the trading card catalog so the new characters and their illustrations can easily be added without much further need of coding.

This week I'll also be sharing the next song to be sampled, the theme used for teen Farah and the Main Menu, all you need to do is click on the name here to download it - Farah's Theme

Next Tuesday I'll likely share a release date on the next beta and list what'll be included in it. :3

Sorry for the slightly delayed Tuesday update!
I'm just coming back online after a three hour power blackout...fun times.
So like I warned last week, this entire time I've spent on watching GamesDoneQuick and finishing off trading cards in the process, did you hear any of my three donations that was read out during Freedom Planet, Illusion of Gaia and Super Mario Land? ;)

I probably did more I forgot about during all the nostalgia being showcased, but I do know I at least finished up three trading cards with Mhu'Tiki, two with adult Farah, three with Osira.
I suspect all of them will be included in the next beta release, although no date on that one yet!

And it seems like most people wanted to hear the Colussia theme out of the available songs, so just click on the name to download it - Colussia Theme

See you next week!
