Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Teen Farah Cosplay

Tuesday update!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

Lately I've been trying to get used to the feeling of going to sleep with both ear-plugs AND ear-protections on to block out the most of the drilling noises, though it's still too early to tell if it's doing more good than harm...because, dang, does those things make my ears feel sore in the morning in the not-so-good way!

It might just be coincedence, but I have the impression it makes me hear less drillings...
I'll give it another week, but if it doesn't work out, I'll give in to the final resort of attempting to change my sleeping patterns so they can't wake me up anymore.

Anyway, Beastman Mode in particular is making a lot of progress! With pretty much all battleposes and pixel sprites finished, only the CG scenes remains before everything about that part is done, and even those are nearly half-done as well!

This week's cosplay sneak peek comes in form of teen Farah, last of the previews for now!
So I'll see you again next week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Osira Cosplay

Yo-Yo, tuesday update!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

So yeah, this week has probably been the worst one yet since the renovations and repairs started four months ago, the noise level was just insanely loud, and both yesterday, along with today, I barely got to sleep at all because these has been the two days they needed access to my own appartment to replace water pipes in my bathroom.

Still, somehow I feel positive the next three months will be a lot better than the previous three, it almost sounds like the main water pipes will all be done already next month, with the remaining work stretching across all summer and into fall will actually be the empty appartment renovations.
No idea how loud that will be, I think the closest one to my own is two or three floors above my own, compared to the nightmare one from before which was basically by my bedroom.

Then what has been going on, hmm...
Beastman Mode is underway and going strong, still waiting for more lines to be recorded and has recently seen a Farah cosplay photoshoot gone through, along with a LoQO related comic being finalized, though it might not be to everyone's taste and will at some point be included in the game.

It feels like I'm forgetting something...but I'm too tired to remember. xD

This week's cosplay sneak peek comes in form of Osira, with Farah coming next time!
And speaking about next time, see you again next week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Gabrielle Cosplay

Tuesday update, keeping the streak going!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

I nearly got a whole weeks of sleeping this time, felt good~
The long needed sleep also made me feel clear enough in my head and focused to let me finally do some more dialogue scripting in the game, yay! But the drilling is supposed to resume this week, so it might be too early to celebrate...I mean, some moron rang my doorbell at 8:30AM in the morning today, dunno who that was, kinda realized on my way to the door I probably shouldn't open it while only wearing panties...

Anyway, that was probably something unrelated since the repair guys have access keys anyway.

So thanks to the sleep, I got a little more work done this week, that's certainly good news!
I were able to add a couple of more sidequests and been arranging for more voiced lines to be recorded, I'll be expecting a pretty large batch from several VA's at this point! :D

This week, I thought I'd give people a little sneak peek on how the cosplay models look like as their represented characters for one of the Patreon pledge rewards, but also what'll eventually show up in the game as well - starting out with introducing Gabrielle! (Sorry, no names will be shared)

And if you're still reading, I'll see you next week!

Legend of Queer Opal - Origin

So this is an odd turn of events.
It looks like a certain company has a patent on the word "Origin".
While this mean they have taken over publishing rights for my next game, I can assure you nothing will change and the quality will absolutely not dimish one bit as they have a long standing track record of delivering perfect games of highest production value!
And I'm really not saying it because they're paying me!

Though there will be some "improvements" to help innovate the game.
However, these things are so tiny that you'll hardly notice any difference at all, such as including microtransactions and selling you back most parts of the original game in form of DLC.
But yeah, it's a FPS now.

And if you haven't guessed it already - April's Fool Day! :D

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Voice of Osira

Tuesday update, y'all!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

I was going to happily announce the drilling is finally done, then I saw a notice in my mailbox...
So here is the deal, apparently they are completely changing out the four main water pipes running through the building, and while they're doing this, they're also renovating any appartment in the complex that is empty.

There aren't really any good news, because I found out they have only done half the pipes, and work on the next one will start this month...and it includes my appartment in the list of those they need access to, they're also going to renovate FOUR more appartments with this main pipe, and each appartment has an estimated one month working time.

I guess I can only hope these appartments that need renovations are on floors far away from my own so the drillings can barely be heard, or not heard at all, I probably also have to completely revamp my sleeping pattern to make sure their renovation work is never being done while I'm asleep, because that is pretty much all I can do without moving out, right?
I hope all of you can understand this is beyond frustrating to me, not only because of what the lack of sleep does to me, but I really want to go back and work with my game with full force.
But I refuse to let those f**king ***holes win, it's just such a huge insult they still demand full rent, so I'm going to take this week and try to adjust my sleeping hours, first time I'd be drastically changing them in over 10 years.

I know this almost sounds like an April's Fool joke, but sadly, that day isn't until tomorrow. D:

Anyway, in game related news, I've worked some more on the costume aspect of the game and arranging for more lines to be recorded, along with adding a few by Osira, but the other people creating content for the game is doing a fantastic job and Beastman Mode is coming along nicely!

And with that, I'm presenting you with a line by Osira from the game, with her new VA!
Enjoy and listen to the sample by downloading it from right here!

It might also be worth mentioning that LewdGamer has been reviewing both previous LoQO games and even have an upcoming interview with myself in the pipeline! ;)

See you next week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Voice of Masquerade

Time for da Tuesday update!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

Drilling, drilling against the wall, who are you driving most insane of all?
In all seriousness, it has been slowing down, most of last week was sweet, sweet silence, but they did a little drilling today and yesterday, I also spotted a van belonging to a painting business last week, so lets hope these are all signs that they're finishing things up at long last.

I've still been working on the game by adding all of Masquerade's recorded lines and figuring out how the costume system should play out, so with the next beta, you'll be able to try that out! Basically, you need to collect pieces of "Costume Fabrics" that comes in sets for each specific character, these can be earned by finding them through exploration, as rewards from sidequests and/or possibly in other ways too!

By turning in three pieces at a clothier and paying a small designer's fee, you'll have a new outfit weaved! And while I did mentioned "Minotaur Queen" and "Women With No Name" as outfits in the previous Tuesday update, it's not 100% guaranteed these specific costumes will be unlockable in episode 1 since I'm having more made - though I can still promise at least one optional costume for each playable girl will be available, if not the two mentioned by name, then two others instead!

And since I mentioned Masquerade's voice, I'm presenting you with a line from the game!
Enjoy and listen to the sample by downloading it from right here!

That's all for this week, see you against next time!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Horse Protagonist

Tuesday update, baby!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

They're still at it, but I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as the drillings have calmed down in intensity this week, so hopefully they're all done soon!

And for this week, it's time to introduce the last one of the three beastmen on offer for Beastman Mode, the stud! So that makes it Wolfman, Bullman and Horseman! Who would you play as, unless you want to go the safe route and play a regular human, who comes both in creamy white and chocolate black? x3

While I don't feel sharp enough to add any story to the game due to the impressive lack of sleep streak, I have been working on it nonetheless with some other things.

Whenever the next beta hits, it will at least come with all of Masquerade's recorded lines added to it, a few more titles and the added feature of finding, unlocking and changing into different costumes that will both change how characters look in battle, and also their sprites.

While the protagonist is currently not planned to get any extra outfits besides the ones you naturally unlock throughout the story, the female partymembers will all have a minimum of one optional costume each to find in episode 1.

Lets call some of these outfits...Cavegirl, Woman With No Name and Minotaur Queen. ;)

That's all for this week, stay tuned for the next one!
