Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Val'Toras

Tuesday update, right on schedule!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

So it looks like the drillings have finally stopped, since I haven't heard any of that for the past two days...yay! Like, really yay!
Along with that, beta v0.07 was released over the weekend with production going along smoothly, the release of LoQO: Origin - Episode 1 may be within reach for February/March, taking into account the two weeks without sleep I had to endure.

Also introducing a new baddie is one of the seven warlords who rule parts of the Land of Savages, and one who'll show up in LoQO: Origin - Episode 1.
He is the leader of the Val'Toras species, they're basically the LoQO universe's answer to bullmen, like Ra'Tiki and the Neifu Tribe are to catgirls.
The Val'Toras consider themselves being a pure breed species while minotaurs are viewed as the lesser "branch" with too much outside breeding watering down the generations.

Without spoiling too much, I can at least say his loyality lies with Osira...dum-dum-duuuum!
Other than that, all voiced lines for Laquadia has been recorded with the other characters soon to follow as well.

Aaaand that'll be all for this week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

Tuesday update, yes, it really is one of those again!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

Oih, tired developer is very tired...
I really wish they would be more considered about the residents in the appartment and do all the incredibly loud drillings the four hours after 12AM, rather than the four hours before it...
The ear protectors I bought does help make the noise more manageable, even if that makes me sleep bad for other reasons, but nothing four cups of coffee stacked in a row doesn't fix.

So yeah, even in zombie mode, I feel rather confident the next beta will be released this weekend.
It'll add more story, more tradings cards, more unlockable illustrations, one new mini-scene, one mini-game for Gabrielle, add Ra'Tiki to your party/camp AND make Master Hen'Tai show up!
Oh, and it'll also add a couple of new areas to previously seen locations as well!

Aaaand that'll be all for this week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Osira

Tuesday update, one week after the other!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

In the last poll, it was asked...no wait, there was no poll this time! How about that!

If nothing else, the weekly polls will make a return once the first episode of LoQO: Origin is released, hopefully next month, when a fresh new batch of poll ideas will be possible.

But in the meantime, why not have a look and enjoy Osira's battlepose?

She is the evil sister of Queen Opala, and will return with a new, strong allied on her side in search for power and with the intention to settle a thing, haunting her from the past...

So, what is new for this week?
Not really that much, they're doing very loud appartment repairs which have left me with basically no sleep for the last five days, with the exception of the weekend, and it would be really unwise to do game work that requires absolute concentration when you're a train-wreck.

But I've still done "something", of course! Like changing how text shows up during the scenes, adding more trading cards, along with a few minor tweaks like making the toggle button for Sprinting Mode easier and more accurate.

I also believe the next beta version will hit during the weekend, next week.
Aiming for this one would be a little too optimistic, since I don't know if I'll get to sleep.

And that'll be all for this week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

Tuesday update, first one for the new year!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

In the last poll, it was asked what kind of "beastman" the protagonist should be, if such a feature would ever be included in LoQO: Origin, with 1853 votes gathered!

Wolf
Won by 37%, being 704 of the votes.
Horse
Second, 36% with 681 of the votes.
Bull
Second, 13% with 248 of the votes.
Other
Second, 6% with 124 of the votes.
Lizard

Last with 5%, being 96 of the votes.

It was pretty close with the two top voted, but wolfman was the preferred winner!

So what is new for this week?
Well, I've been working a lot on the story lately, to the point where the end of Episode 1 is nearly within reach, along with Ra'Tiki being introducted and Master Hen'Tai making a come-back!

I'm also beginning to send out lines for recording this month, and all illustrations for Western Edition scenes has been completed as well with Eastern Edition not far behind!
So the next few upcoming weeks will probably be very light on updates, as I'm pretty much only adding finishing touches to content and the story for the episode.

And that's all for now, sorry for the short update!
(Feel free to suggest poll ideas, I'm absolutely burned out myself. xD)

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Emoticon 10

Tuesday update, last one for the year!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

In the last poll, I asked which game version was preferred in LoQOII, with 1448 votes gathered!

Western Edition
Won by 56%, being 814 of the votes.
Eastern Edition
Second, 42% with 618 of the votes.
Clean Edition
Lost by 1%, being 16 of the votes.

It was even, but maybe more surprisingly, 16 people preferred to play LoQOII with all adult content disabled!
So this week I'm sharing another emoticon, this time of Layla the Mare - Normal Expression.
She plays a very little part in the first episode, but can still be found doing maid duties at the Emperor's Manor, for those who explore and are interested enough.

And as for the game production, this week has been spent on finishing Gabrielle's side activity, which has been appropriately named the Tavern Wench Challenge, where the masked woman challenges every male to a lewd game of drinking! Raise her fame by replacing public posters in towns and see her having to deal with larger crowds as her exploits are growing famous! Oh, and I'm also in the progress of adding more story, with another mini-scene or two being available in the next beta, whenever that hits!

I think the complete version of episode 1 will in total have 5 full scenes, and around 7 mini-scenes.
But that's all for now, Happy New Year everyone!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Adult Farah

Tuesday update, and during the XXX-mas week too!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

In the last poll, I asked what what protagonist you'll most likely play as in LoQO:O, with 1516 votes gathered!

White
Won by 56%, being 849 of the votes.
Both
Second, 36% with 554 of the votes.
Black
Lost by 7%, being 113 of the votes.

So why don't we kick off the XXX-mas week in a humble fashion by having me present and share adult Farah's "battlepose" from LoQO: Origin! Truly, her outfit doesn't even know the meaning of the word modesty!
For those unfamiliar with the character, she is Queen Opala and Osira's mother, the matriarch of the egyptian family, though retired as a Queen and now serves as Opala's advisor and moral support.

As for the game itself, last beta was sent out during the previous weekend and progression is coming along smoothly! With side-quests and romance scenes being in focus since last tuesday, I'm also in the process of adding Gabrielle's "tavern drunk mini-game", which is kinda like her version of Farah's breast flashing. x3

Anyway, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Trading Cards

Tuesday update, correctly spelled and everything!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

In the last poll, I asked what funding method you preferred from personal experience, with more/less or pretty much exactly 780 votes gathered!

Patreon
Won by 55%, being 434 of the votes.
Offbeatr
Second, 27% with 217 of the votes.
Other
Lost by 16%, being 129 of the votes.

So this past week, I took a comment into consideration and decided to tweak the dice game to also include a way to play for trading cards, effectively really turning them into trading cards, as you would risk to lose one from gambling or if you trade it away against another one.

How dice gambling works with trading cards, is very much like "Lier's Dice" from Red Dead Redemption, although simplified as you first select the trading card you want from the opponent, and he will select one from you, then you toss your dices and simply guess if your opponent will get a higher or a lower score, first to score in three rounds wins the card you selected from the other one!

And of course, cards you lose through gambling or trading will simply re-appear where you first found them, to make sure you'll never hit a point where you can't collect every single trading card.
So this weekend, before christmas, the next beta will hit with the complete title/reward system available, dice gambling and also trading cards added!

And I'll finish off this week by releasing a screenshot of the tweaked dice gambling, made for cards!
