Well, there isn't a lot more to be said...but here she is again! Beatrix's daughter Elin, in all of her glory!
While the LoQO girls certainly don't need an excuse to have huge tits, I felt like it would be really awkward and almost insulting if the one character who actually has cow-genes would end up NOT having a rack of epic proportions, and age issues are solved as well...it'll forever remain a mystery and a running joke. ;)

Meanwhile with the game production, I've continued on the seven new locations that'll be added for the next beta, whenever that might be released, hopefully next month, and I've also been working on the first new full CG Scene for episode 3 which knocks out another girl from the list of yet to be romanced until now. x3

I also feel like I need to explain some things.
I've tried to keep it a secret they've been doing construction/renovation work in my appartment complex again this month, so I've been getting very little sleep.
It hasn't really had an impact on my work yet since the things I've done this month has been more of creating maps than focusing on story and important events, but I still feel like I need to mention it since it HAS affected my ability to reply and my mood, which in turn has made me easier to agitate as the weeks have progressed.
Thankfully, they should be done before July the 1st, so this should be the last week.

Finally, next week I'll bring up the figurines again as the first trial print I ordered has arrived and I consider it good enough to be distribute. :D

So with that, I'll see you again next week with more sleep behind me!

  1. SO happy it will be a running joke. So much potential for comedy. And I feel comedy is important in your games. And interesting choice of design. You could have gone full Haulstaur but she's normal aside from boobs and horns which I kinda like. Glad that you will be getting sleep and it won't be like that other time. I can guess why you kept it secret after what happened. But glad it's almost over. Looking forward to a beta hopefully early next month :)

    By the way, what her personality like? The emoticon gave off cute vibes, sparrow's pic is giving off angsty "get of my room!!" vibes.

    1. I kept it a secret for several reasons, but since it at the end of the day hasn't affected my workflow, I figured I might as well tell everyone to help explain some things in case someone thought something was wrong or worried. :)

      And I haven't really decided on Elin's personality yet, I think she wants to be a good daughter but feel weightened down my pressure and expectations...she look cute and harmless, but still is her mother's daughter when things get serious. ^^

    1. It looks that way for sure, but I'm pretty sure its just a case of one tit resting over the other, making he one under pressure more squeezed.

    2. Even if so, it can't have that much effect.
      Sparrow just made a little mistake.

  3. What works would you say have inspired you when writing LOQO?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I used to be a writer before I even made my first illustration, so a good 20+ years back or so...but when I wrote stories back then is the same influence as for stories I do in LoQO now, I would say my main source of inspiration are games with steampunk influences, like Final Fantasy 7, Grandia and Skies of Arcadia. :3

      Delete
    2. And yet you list FF VII instead of FF VI, which is the steampunkiest of all Final Fantasies I played, weird. (._. )?

      Not complaining, just observing.

      Then again, If I had to guess I'd say a certain female from FF VII seems to be a big visual influence on your characterdesign, hmmm? (ツ)

      Delete
    3. FF VII was my first Final Fantasy game, so it made the biggest impact on me, even though I think FF IX was even better. ^^

      Delete
    4. FF VII was my first as well. Still, I can never make up my mind which one is my abosolute favorite of the series: VII or VI, they're both such goshdarned masterpieces.

      Delete
    5. lol 8 was my first but 9 was definitely a favorite. But I don't really hate any of the FF series(except 11 and 14 but that's only cause I can't afford paid MMOs)

      Delete
  4. He, You took exactly the solution I suggested in the comment section of the last update for the age issue.
    Compliment on that, I think it's best for the fans so they can mentaly file in what they like and it sounds like it'll be a breeding ground for great commedy in your hands.

    On the pic: Oh boy, Rah'Tiki rage incoming when first meeting her. Isn't it time for her to finally bond with Gabrielle over the fact that they're both among the least stacked girls in the group? (ツ)

    Didn't expect the occupation though...
    Student of what? Posterior-kicking? Because I thought she'll follow her mother's career path as well?

    Sorry to hear about more noise yet again but also congrats at handling it so well. (^-^)d

    1. Well if you're in training to become a warrior, you ARE technically a student...apprentice sounds too Star Wars. xD

    2. Yeah, my bad.
      I messed up because my native German only applies the the exact same word "Student" to people studying at universities and such. School students as well as those of martial artists are called "Schüler" which literally means as much as "pupil".

      So Melforas was a one of Zweibelle's "Schüler" not her "Studend", unless she was once a naughty college prof. (ツ)

  5. Seven new locations, new full CG Scene for episode 3, knocks out another girl, oh you just keep on pushing all the right buttons!
    As for the construction/renovation i feel you a lot, the constant hammering and noises are tantamount to auditory torture but you've trucked along through it once so you're strong and your gonna pull through, hers rating for you!

    1. The worst part about the noises is how you're literally jumpscared everytime you manage to fall asleep, only to be awoken by loud drillings time and time again.

      It's like...the situation triggers the primal feeling of fear, like you instantly get the urge to run from danger, only to find yourself in bed.
      That's the best way I can describe it.

    2. So i guess you could say the noises really put you in a bed situation..........i'll see myself out.

    1. While this is awesome I must point out that it is also Nintendo. Nintendo which is a FAMILY company and would definitely "try" to find a way to make sure that games with adult content are not ever featured on their system.

      Delete
    2. Well, it's not like Nintendo doesn't allow adult titles. I mean, I've seen call of duty black ops on the Wii, Batman arkham series on the Wii U, and now skyrim on the switch. And no matter how you cut it these aren't really "family" games.

      Delete
    3. Well Joe I'm sure they can only stop you posting adult games, they can't stop you making your own.

      Also I agree with omega Nintendo has just as many sex and violent games as other consoles. They had Senran Kagura 3d.

      Delete
    4. True but they heavily sensored Senran Kagura didn't they? Also by adult I just meant nudity and content of a sexual nature. Lol Nintendo has no issue with Violence as considering I grew up with Street fighter and Mortal Kombat on Nintendo systems. XD Also while they can't(not certain about that) stop you from making adult content on it that would defeat the purpose of showing it to Gabe wouldn't it? I mean if you can post it for other players to use.

  14. Ra'tiki is going to have a serious fit when they first meet lol

  15. Those are really huge melons she have... I believe she have to have other parts of her body more fitted to her Val'Toras genes. But yeah, she's really cute as she looks right now. )
    I suppose her introduction will take place on the first trip to the Frozen continent, so it will not happen yet in LoQO:O 3, or we still can have our hopes high for this happy event to happen soon in the game progress? )

    1. SweGabe stated elsewhere that the current plans for the game include the eventual travel to the frozen continent but the Land of Savages will probably only be first be gazed upon in the next game.

    2. I really hope for the land of savages we can get crazy with the protagonist designs. I know it will be hard for the artists though.

    1. It's not the first time. Sparrow has a silly, exaggerated, cartoony style. Or maybe he fucked up. But he's doing all the scenes for the western version as well as all the trading cards as well as giving us these character intro pics for Gabe to show us as well as doing his own commissions and pics for Hentai foundry and hentai united. You can criticize the photo and style but calling him lazy is too much.

    2. Sparrow is definitely not a lazy artist.
      Even such professionals as himself make mistakes sometimes.

  20. Will we actually get a new beta this month or will you wait til next month to release? I mean I don't mind I am just curious. After all you said it should be done by the first but while betas don't typically go out til the 3rd or 4th does that beat the deadline? Well either way Hope you get some better sleep Gabe. Don't work TOO hard lol. Remember Health is it's OWN wealth :P

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just gotta point out that Beatrix is 32. Not much of a running gag or speculation when you know that much. Even so, it makes Elin that much more tantalizing. <3

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The running gag comes from us not knowing exactly how fast it takes for Elin to mature since she has valtoras genes. She could actually be a lot younger. See where we're getting at?

      Delete
    2. Well that would fit with Gabes original idea, that Elin be 16, so that would mean Beatrix got pregnant at 16 and it's Elins time to follow in her mothers footsteps.

      Funny enough if you could have sex before the legal age then Beatrix had to wait until she was 18, then Elin would be 14.
      In short age just makes everything bothersome.

      Delete
    3. Funny how all of this works when these characters exist in a fantasy old world and hitting one's teens once upon a time was marriage age.

      Delete
    4. Doesn't have to be a fantasy setting. I'm reading a manga where one girl who's in highschool has a Mom who's still in her twenties. Trying to figure out the math behind that everyone got horrified and decided to just forget about it. In a flashback, we learn that a Japanese businessman fell in love with a woman on paris and got her pregnant. He wanted to marry her but she said no because she was under 18 and lived with her parents. He had idea because of how mature she looked. Still, he loved her and decided to accept her and meet her parents. Then she told him she was 12......the end :D

    5. Age of consent, Omega. Tis different in Japan. Granted I wonder what the age of consent is in the Opala Universe. Regardless, Elin looks ready to breed. >:D

      Delete
    6. You know the age of consent in Japan for that situation is still violated right? Same in france where that flashback took place. Both laws were violated. That was the joke......anyway yeah sure. I'm wondering what the age of consent in Loqo is too.

      Delete
  22. Can't seem to find an appropriate place to ask this... I am thinking about trying the games out, but idk whether it's better to start from the beginning or just jump in with the newest game, what do you recommend?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It really doesn't matter. While there is an over arching story across all three games, each game follows a different protagonist with their own story who is introduced into the bigger story. You'll basically get a plot summary for the previous games during the games and even at the beginning before you start. you can play the newest game without being lost. But if you really want to know what's going on then you should start from the beginning or at least play the second one. If it helps, the first game is very short unless you try to do end game stuff. The second game is long but you don't have to play through the whole game to get the gist of the story. Basically, start where you want.

      Delete
    2. For the second game a fair few of the plot points regarding Opala and her mother in Origins are situated in the end of the second game so even if you don't play the first game I would suggest playing the second all the way through. You don't NEED to do all the sidequests and stuff if you don't want to though for the full game experience and to see as much art as possible I once again suggest you do. That said I agree with Omegalock you don't NEED to but seeing as I love all 3 games(and I think most people agree on this) it might be worth your while to play all 3 regardless of whether you chose to play origins first.

      Delete
    3. Yeah I agree with Joe. I love all the games and the second game is the one that most connects to Origins. So if you really care about learning the story then make sure to at least play the second game. But as great as those experiences are and as much as I love Gabe's work, I have to say Origin's is the best and going back to play the old one may be a struggle. It depends on what you're trying to get from these games. Loqo offers a good game and story along with adult content. However if you're focus is only for the adult content, Loqo 1 and 2 may not be for you. They have plenty of art pieces you can collect and unlock butbthe Scenes themselves are few and easy to miss. Especially for Loqo 1. On my first play through sticking to the story I was only able to unlock 1 scene. There are more but you should look up the Loqo wiki spaces guide to get help unlocking them. Loqo 2 offers much more scenes that are easier to unlock but because the story of the game is much longer than 1, they can seem few and far between and there are missable scenes too. Loqo Origins however, have plenty of scenes. As a reference, episode 1 of Loqo Origins has as much or almost as much scenes all of Loqo 2 or more.

      Now that being said, if you care about the story and enjoy the gameplay, then I still recommend playing the first 2 or at least the second one before touching Origins. And if you care about the adult content then follow the guide to unlocking the scenes. Lucky for you, the first two games have a mode that gives you powered up characters so you can speed through the story faster and not have a hard time with battles if you don't feel like grinding for levels and armor and weapons. But if the features and characters from Origins are really calling you and you feel you can't wait, then you don't have to play the previous games as the story should more or less explain itself to you as you progress. But on top of being able to understand the story easier if you play the previous games, they are all pretty great experiences. The story is good, the characters are great, plenty of funny, sexy, or even dramatic moments, lots of action, and it's an RPG. You can grind through and play this game, unlock secret boss battles and quests and stories. The games are good even without the adult content. So whatever you do or wherever you start really depends on you and what you want out of these games.

    4. Although there may be more scenes in LoQO:O in comparison to Golden Edition of LoQO II (but not story illustrations in general) and the Origins itself has the highest quality in the series, the second game is definitely larger in almost every aspect than the third one so far (more illustrations to gain, more locations to visit, more monsters to defeat, more quests to complete, etc).

      So, I recommend you to play LoQO II GE first.

      Delete
    5. *I meant the second episode of LoQO:O.
      ---

      The first game is optional but you should try it in case if you wanna have a better idea of the whole concept of the series.

      Delete
    6. Well of course Loqo II is still bigger because Origins isn't done yet. But other than that I agree with you.

      Delete
    7. Actually I think Gabe said that after episode 2 was done Origins would already be about the same size if not bigger with as much if not more content than LOQO 2. lol but don't quote me on that I may not be remembering right. Either way I think that by the time the full game is done there will be far more content in Origins than either of the first 2 games(maybe even combined lol)

      Delete
    8. Joe Johnson,
      I didn't really get what Gabe meant back then.
      In terms of quality and diversity the second episode of LoQO:O is undoubtedly bigger than LoQO II, however, in terms of content quantity the previous game is a definite winner. You can simply see it if you compare both games' statistics data and their world maps to each other.

      Delete
    9. So far you may be right but with the amounts of content being added with each update and/or Beta not for long lol.

      Delete
    10. "however, in terms of content quantity the previous game is a definite winner." Hahaha nop, just nop!

      Delete
    11. Beliar, hm... I see, I see. Yes, that's quite reasoned.

      Delete
    12. Right back at you buddy! The TL;DR of what you said is i like LOQO 2 more because i like it more, the end. And my response was i disagree, way because the level design is much more efficient and not just big empty spaces, expansion of the lore/ world building, more side quests, more funny side quests, a bit more emphasis on secret areas, a plethora of new mechanics, the encyclopedia is superb, the characters are far more proactive,the scenes and illustrations have something for everyone( thanks fore throwing my way a bone to Gabe!) and all of that is quality and that sounds pretty reasonable to me!
      For you to say "however, in terms of content quantity the previous game is a definite winner." is probably wrong!

      Delete
    13. That's it. Thanks for the answer.

      You may haven't understood me correctly: I don't blame Gabe. I agree on everything you listed, except for one thing: I think of them as quality items, not quantity ones.

      As I've already stated, the Origins has the highest quality among other games in the series, but it lacks in quantity of content in comparison to the previous game. If you spend more time on increasing quality, it'll lead to the detriment of quantity, and vice versa. It's natural, but I'm glad that Gabe decided to concentrate on improving different aspects of the game rather than leaving it as it was.

      Delete
    14. "Origins has the highest quality among other games in the series, but it lacks in quantity of content in comparison to the previous game" you're contradicting yourself in the same sentence the examples i gave before that's quantity of content(mechanics/story)!
      " If you spend more time on increasing quality, it'll lead to the detriment of quantity".....
      " If you spend more time on increasing quality, it'll lead to the detriment of quantity".....
      Ya that's just stupid, no matter how i look at it that's just stupid and extremely contradictory.

    16. I am what i am but you think you're something that you're not!

  23. Fantastic series so far Gabe!
    LOQO:O actually really surprised me with the amount of new features you introduced.
    I also really like the scenes and pictures and I hope that there will be a lot of those in this game as well.
    2 things to point out however:
    First, I do not mind big tits too much, but I think you are going a bit overboard by giving almost every single character huge knockers. In LOQO 2, a big part of Farah's character and charm was that she was the only one with huge knockers, the ability to be fertile to creatures beyond humans, and her open sexuality.
    However, the first premise is greatly undermined now by the huge breast sizes. Plus, it makes it look a little less realistic (not that matters much in a fantasy game XD). I would recommend toning down the sizes a little bit.
    Second, about the age of Elin. Knowing the age of Beatrix (32 as stated by your reveal picture of her), either Elin is underage, or Beatrix gave birth to her when she herself was underage. I do not think you want to be accountable for anything of the sort, so that is why I am pointing it out to you. Maybe making Beatrix a little older or hiding her age as well will fix the issue.
    Cheers :)

    1. Aside from the joke, age isn't an issue. I mean anytime we look at say a hentai doujinshi, said girl is underage. Any hentai doujinshi taking place in high school is technically underage outside of Japan. But like mother like daughter. Gotta follow in her footsteps. Muaha! Also not taking into account the beastman genes since animals do sexually mature faster than humans, but that's another matter entirely. Gabe knows what he's doing. XD

      Delete
    2. I mean, I trust Gabe too but the reason we are having the conversation and giving suggestions in the first place was because she said she wasn't sure what to do about her age. The big issue is that the game is distributed internationally and different countries, and even different states within countries, have different views on the legality of this subject. The hentai you're talking about is legal in Japan but not in the U.K. or Australia for example. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_status_of_drawn_pornography_depicting_minors#Japan

      Delete
    3. Well, Omega, age is just a one part of a huge can of worms. Humans having relations with animals is another. Honestly, I personally don't think it's really worth worrying about wherein there's a woman in this universe that got impregnated by a horse and Zoophilia is illegal in places such as England.

      Delete
    4. Well of course compared to the other shit in these games the age of Elin may seem like a relatively minor issue (no pun intended, but still proud of it). But society tends to take these things seriously. And honestly people will be quicker to get on you for drawn porn with underage people rather than drawn bestiality porn. And while we the fans may be okay with it or at least understanding, some guy on the internet may stumble upon the game and make a big deal about it. So it's nice to be as safe as possible.

      Delete
    5. Indeed, my intention was to avoid trouble for Gabe by pointing out the possible problem and by giving possible solutions to evade it. Nothing else.
      I know very well that this is fiction and (as long as it is fiction) I do not mind the age of the people involved in sexual activity. I am just saying that people could get butthurt over this.
