Third anniversary special poll results.

Hey again. The results are in for the third anniversary special poll, and Helenya will be the subject of this year’s anniversary set. I kind of figured it would be her or Lucia; but surprisingly Karen came in second place; which is actually kind of a nice surprise. Apparently the people who cared to vote do actually have different tastes, as each girl got at least one vote. I decided against extending this poll since some people did care enough to vote as it was and it seemed only fair to let that stand if nobody else wanted to bother. Thanks to those who did vote.

So that ten-ish image set will get done sometime towards the end of the month, and I hope to have the mini-set preview for this month’s new patreon mini-set later this week. The one poll remaining still could use more votes and is very important; so more votes there would be nice. So check out the game 1.0 post below if you haven’t yet and check back in a few days for a new mini-set preview!

Salune’s slave training at 1.0, out of beta!

Hey again. It has been a while since my last post, but for good reason; I went over the entire game last weekend and re-balanced pretty much everything, meaning that it is actually good enough to leave beta now! (I know I said it would be another month before, but I was not planning to do a full re-balance and wanted to avoid it if possible, but for assorted reasons I just did it.) Everything I wanted in the base game is included except one thing in particular I wanted to include that I could not get working in the way I wanted; but if I figure that out in the coming weeks I can always update the game and add it back in. There is so much stuff in this game I cannot even begin to list it all here, but check the tags for an idea of what is involved. (That tag list of content types is not all inclusive, just FYI.) I have posted a handful of event previews before, and some of those are re-posted below along with one new one. The game itself is available to my patrons, at the $8 tier and above. Things actually got pushed forward for once… shocking, I know. Preview images and other info after the break due to this post being massive. Continue reading

Poll results here, new special poll up!

Hi. I am back with the first post of September with the poll results from last time and two new polls, and one of them is the anniversary bonus set special poll! Before that though, the results from last time; one poll asked if people would be interested in a lore/world info page, and everyone who voted said they would definitely be interested. So I will look into this a bit later; but it will take some time so don’t expect this too soon. The other poll asked how often you check this site; and most people seemingly check it around once a week, with a few doing once a month. I tend to post updates once a week now, with some exceptions… but I hope to get back to some small update every few days sometime soon.

Related to that, the new special poll is up for slightly over two weeks and it asks who you would like to see star in this year’s anniversary bonus set; with a choice of the four main female characters that have not yet starred in one: Tabitha, Helenya, Lucia, and Karen. Whoever wins will get a ten(ish) image set made of them later this month, posted for everyone, as before. The other new poll asks which were your favorite chapters of the Road to Lithorca (RTL) story arc, and you can pick your three favorites! While this may be slightly less exciting than the poll above it; is is far more important for assorted reasons. It would be great if a lot of people could pick their three favorite chapters of RTL, and even better if people could leave comments and explain WHY they are their favorites.

I do listen to these poll results and take those and assorted comments/requests into consideration when making new stuff; (I have put in and/or made several things just because someone asked me about it) so this is kind of really important with the completion of the game about a week away. I currently plan to start working on the first chapter of the city arc soon after that, and shortly after work starts on that I plan to make a large post here with some assorted thoughts about the RTL story arc before that gets done (but after this poll is over). So please vote in both polls and/or leave comments letting me know what your favorite RTL chapters were and why!

I will be back in about a week when the 1.0 release of the game is ready and I will have assorted new info and one or two new previews for it, so look forward to that as well.

New DA stuff posted a bit late, game still on track.

Hi again. Sorry this is a few days late but I managed to fix one image I was about to give up on last Saturday and needed a day to fix it after that. I really wanted to get it done for DA this month, and I think it was worth the wait, go check it out if you haven’t yet. (Mermaid!) Allegedly people really wanted to see these according to a poll a while back, I did say I was working on it; and here is the current iteration of it. There may be more… detailed stuff with her a bit later. (Or sooner if a lot of people really like it,) Some other cool new stuff is also up on DA for everyone, so check that out and let me know what you think.

As for the game, everything is still set for a 1.0 release candidate early next month; it will remain in beta for a month for testing/balance purposes, and then leave beta the month after that. (And therefore go to normal patrons as well.) I have fixed some issues here and there and worked in a few new text variations as well as putting in a few more sound effects in some places. I am still looking into that one new convenience mechanic I would like to work in, but that may or may not happen; but it is far from critical. I am also fighting itches to put in additional scene images… which for now I have not. (I have to draw the line somewhere.)

I will be back around the weekend with new polls; so vote in the current ones if you haven’t yet.

August Patreon mini-set preview!

Hey, sorry this is so late this week, but I have had all sorts of crap delaying me these past few days. (I had a gas leak fixed two days ago and it literally took them eight hours to fix; plus the day before and after I had to move half my back room around so they could get to it.) Long story short, below is the preview for this month’s new patreon mini-set, and it features Tabitha accidentally waking up an ancient slumbering demon while checking out a crypt; and he has a century worth of pent up lust that needs venting… which likely won’t go so well for her. The mini-set is currently five images, though that may go up as usual; last month’s mini-set ended up at over ten images, so anything is possible. Check the tags on this post for a better idea of what will happen in this set.

In other news, the polls are going fairly well, but more votes are always nice; and I am adding bits to the game for the full release early next month. We will see how much more text/variations actually gets added and what it all comes together, but so far so good except the one little additional mechanic I want to add in if possible. (Ton of issues with that, but I am working on it.) The new DA stuff will get posted next week sometime; as noted I have had a busy week and did not have time to finish all that this week.There are also assorted things planned for next month, most of which is known to my patrons already; but it will all become public soon enough. (One thing in particular I am still on the fence about.)

Finally, if you want to support me and my assorted works and maybe even get access to these mini-sets and/or lots of other rewards too, (including the current game beta) check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Game near completion, status update.

Hi. As you can guess from the title, the game is not quite done yet; but it is very close. I am taking another month to expand on the text in a few areas a bit, do some balancing, and possibly work in one more small thing. All the base scene content is in the current beta though, which means all scene sets/training options are in and the endings are in as well; and that was sent out to my Patrons last night in the 0.86 beta. As mentioned previously, I can’t see this not being done before a month from now unless something terrible happens again and I am prevented from working somehow.

I think it all came together better than I had hoped, and likely better than it should have given that this is my first real attempt at a game. There are a few things I had to tone back a bit, either because of render limitations or just to try and balance the content; I prefer not to have one scene set be twice as large as another unless there is a good reason. However, as I mentioned various places a while back; I can always add to this later on if people really like it – I already have several ideas for this, but it completely depends on the reception this gets and/or what support I have to do it. (Check out my Patreon page if you want access to the current beta – https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart)

Anyway, more votes in the polls would be appreciated, and I will be back in a week or so with a new mini-set preview and hopefully some new DA stuff as well.

New polls up, and poll results from last time.

Hi again. I am back with the results from the old polls and two new polls are up on the right. The first poll from last month asked if you are excited for my upcoming game, and thankfully most voters are. 😀 The second poll asked if you still view story/image sets if they don’t have your favorite character/content type; and this was a tie between always and sometimes, so the general consensus seems to be mostly yes. (I was quite interested in this second poll, and it seems that most of you are at least willing to look at new/other things, which is good.)

As for the new polls, the first one asks if you would be interested in a general lore/world info page if I made one; think something like the characters page except with background info/ additional context. The other poll asks how often you check this site, with assorted options. (I assume people would check here rather than my other pages.) Please vote in those new polls and let me know your thoughts on these things!

In other news, I am working to try and “finish” the content for the game for next week; though it is apparent I will not have time to fully test the balancing at the minimum. I am still unsure if I will even be able to squeeze in everything I want to before Patreon rewards sometime next week, but I am trying. It is remarkably hard to decide what to cut and what to expand on. I will be back with an update next week regarding whether or not I managed to get the game content “finished” or if I have to push it back one more month for some additional polish.

Gallery test and status update!

Hi again. I am back with a small status update and a new image gallery to try out! As noted in last month’s poll, people supposedly wanted image galleries; so I made one, as I said I would. It is linked up top, and it is comprised of all the old RTL story arc previews in chapter order for convenience. There are many options for this gallery thing I found, but the defaults seem pretty good so far; however, I will likely tweak it around a bit to see what I can do a bit later on. Depending on feedback I get regarding this new gallery and/or the usage/views it gets, I may add more/other galleries depending; though I am not totally sure what else would make for a good gallery other than the mini-set previews.

As for the status update, I have some new stuff done for the game; most of it relating to the middle/lower endings… the top one is not done yet. I am also still trying to work out how to render this last scene set properly due to the high number of figures… but I may just have to do it the hard way, which is just trial and error. I still can’t say for sure that it will get totally “done” before next month’s rewards go out; but it will be close. There is just so much I want to do with many aspects that I need to tone down or hold back on for balancing/time reasons. Even if I want to work on it for another month though, that should definitely be it; so this is close to the end either way. Once it is “done” I plan to send it to a few artist friends of mine to hopefully get some feedback; my patrons will also get it of course, but it will stay in the mid level tier for a couple more months while I hopefully make some adjustments/fixes from the feedback I get.

Anyway, I should be back in a week or so with something; in the mean time, please vote in the current polls if you haven’t yet and let me know how the new gallery thing looks/works. As per usual I get little to no feedback regarding anything… so it would be nice if that could change for once. (Otherwise I just have to guess whether or not people like it from pageviews, which doesn’t really work well.)

July Patreon mini-set preview here!

Hey again. I am back with a preview of a fancy new Patreon set, which admittedly got a bit out of hand. The set features Karen having a kinky dream about a whole different kind of pregnancy; and there is a lot of assorted tentacle action. (Including some egg insertion as well as her birthing tiny tentacles; as mentioned, I didn’t exactly plan to take it this far but it just sort of happened… so I might as well include it now.) I haven’t done tentacles in a mini-set for a while and I wanted to test/fix a bunch of tentacle related stuff I had, and all that and more happened; making this a very nice and very special mini-set.

I actually can’t say right now how many images it is exactly, as I had to re-render everything in the set starting earlier today (it’s still going) due to me fixing one thing that bothered me. It is at least seven images though; and it will likely end up being more for one of many reasons. This will go out to appropriate patrons of mine starting with next month’s main rewards message, along with however much of the game I can have done by then. (Still aiming to get it close to done, but admittedly that is unlikely.) We will see what I come back with in next week’s status update.

As per usual, if you want to support me and my assorted works and maybe even get access to these mini-sets and/or lots of other rewards too, (including last month’s story set and/or the current game beta) check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

New commission and status update!

Hey again. I am back with some updates regarding work I have been doing and one new commission, in case you didn’t read the title. I sent out the updated beta of the game to applicable Patrons of mine a few days ago; and there is only one main scene set left to put in now. The 1.0 release of “Salune’s slave training” is very close; I can’t see it taking more than two months at the outside, and I hope to have it basically complete when next month’s main rewards message goes out. (When it is at 1.0 I will repost some of the previews and some info/other things about it for convenience sake; but I would think regular viewers here know what to expect by now.)

I still have a lot of text expansions to work in and balancing to do, but some of that may need more testing than I can do myself. (I am in the process of putting in the endings now.) In other news, there are also some fixes and new images as well as one new addition to the characters page, [with a few things left out for story reasons] which I have been meaning to fix for months but forgetting. (One additional new character to come for that as well, but I will wait until I actually put out chapter one of the next story arc to put her bio here.) Regardless, I will be back next week with the preview for this month’s new Patreon mini-set, perhaps more depending on assorted time factors.

Anyway, here is that new anonymous commission, featuring Tabitha and some bondage/tentacle action!
