Hi again. I just came by to post a quick update as to what is currently going on. Long story short, I am pushing back the beta I was working on until next month; essentially due to a combination of real life concerns, a drop in interest/support, and also me making this new game into much more than it was originally planned to be. (This is a ton of work that I am doing right now, and there are only two people left that would even see a beta at the moment; and I would not be happy/comfortable showing it in such an unfinished state.) Instead I am trying to get one of the animations for the new game working and planning to post a preview of that to my patrons… and possibly more event previews for them if that is not ready in time. Main rewards will go out as soon as that gets situated – likely tomorrow or the day after. (Last month there just wasn’t anything visually worthwhile from the new game to put together; this month I did not have enough free time and there just are not enough people left who would get it to justify all the work involved.) I was effectively pushing myself far too hard for something that would not have been nearly worth it right now – so I had to push it back.
I have had tons of other crap taking up my time the past week or so (including weather-related migraines almost every day) and this just did not work out the way I was hoping it would at the moment – and I am not going to compromise the quality of this game just to get an early build together that almost nobody would even see. (Yes, I can just fix it later, but that amounts to just wasting time/effort – I might as well do it right the first time.) I am effectively trying to make three different versions of each event as a base – with a few text variations on top of that, similar to what I did in SST. This means that the new game is three times more complicated as a base; and that is without all the other bits I want to add in later. (This game will hopefully have several more aspects to it than SST – besides what I have discussed already; we will see how things go.) Sorry again to the two people this affects; but hopefully you understand my reasoning. (As before, more people get to enjoy it this way also.)
Anyway, as I mentioned; I plan to have at least one animation bit in each training/event section of the new game… hopefully that will work out with no issues. (I have yet to actually try and implement it – but in theory it should work fine.) I also finalized a voice script over the past weekend; so hopefully that will get worked on sometime soon, and I can work those new voice bits into my games. As I also noted up top, below is another sexy preview of one of the other two slave characters from the new game that you guys have not seen yet; the elf slave! She is currently my favorite of the bunch… but that is just how things were likely going to be anyway. 🙂 This girl is the older, more eager and experienced of the three – and she has a fancy combination lust/fertility tattoo on her crotch to show her value. She was designed to show the high quality/beauty/value of elven slaves – as they will be the most expensive/difficult to buy/train. 😀
If you haven’t already looked for some reason – definitely check out the preview below, do also make sure to vote in the polls on the right; and if you like that and want access to my previous game, (and much more!) and/or you want to help me make this new one, you should check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart Any support put forward (no matter how small) is greatly appreciated. 😀
Hi again! I am back with my third update in a week, which must seem strange; but I have wanted to post more frequently… (as some of you told me you would prefer) so whatever. As the title of this post notes, I have just finished listing the recently retired mini-sets on my oronjo shop – so those are now available there if anyone is interested! All of my old mini-sets up through 47 are now on there, with a few bundles available as well. (https://www.oronjo.com/store/Sc7RT7695rpZhsXC2)
Also, here is one of the two early event scene previews form my new game that my Patrons got last month. This one features the half elf being roughly fucked and bred by a goblin in one of the mid-level vaginal trainings. There is still one other event preview that my patrons got last month, as well as the other two slave character previews… but I want to save some of that for later. (I plan to post one of the other slave character previews later this month. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this preview… and I am doing my best to get some sort of beta together that will hopefully go out to my mid-level patrons in a week or so. The vaginal and service scene sets are more or less done, (patrons voted on which ones I did first) a couple re-renders notwithstanding… but I still have a ton of writing/coding to do to implement it all; much more than I initially thought – due to me wanting to make the text different for slave type. As I mentioned before, the girl in the images will of course change depending on the slave you are training, but the scene itself will usually be the same… with a few exceptions – so at least one event image of each training type will be different and exclusive to that type of slave.
I should be back next week with some sort of update – so vote in the polls and I will see you all again soon.
So check out the preview below, and if you like that and want access to my previous game, (and much more!) and/or you want to help me make this new one, you should check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart Any support put forward (no matter how small) is greatly appreciated. 😀
Hi again. I am back with the poll results from last time and some new polls as mentioned last night – as well as a small status update. One quick note: as I said last month, the mini-set list for my Patreon page reset as of this month – so only the most recent three will be available when rewards go out in a week and a half or so. I will try to list the retired mini-sets on my oronjo shop as soon as I can; but I have been very busy as I mentioned last time.
As for the results from the old polls; the first poll asked what type of adult game you preferred. Most people seem to prefer RPG and/or Action/adventure games – as those tied for first place. Visual novels and simulation games tied for second place after that with half as many votes – with a couple votes for puzzle and casino style games at the bottom. As far as the top options: Action/adventure is the one I am least confident in my ability to do well – I have seen many, many crappy Japanese beat-em-up type games with jerky animations and awkward fighting… and I doubt I could do any better at this stage; this is probably the thing I am least likely to try any time soon… but I will look into it for possible future use. RPGs on the other hand I do really want to try, (and I think I could do rather well) but I am not at a point where I can devote enough time/effort into making a decent one; so hopefully I will get to try that a bit later on. Visual novels and simulations I of course have done one of each so far; with one more simulation game in the works right now; so we will see how that works out. (I plan to make another VN after this current game I am working on – like not right after, but in terms of the next game to be made at some point.)
The second previous poll asked what you thought about music in adult games – and many of you seem to think it could be really great if done well. with a few scattered votes below that for the “meh” options; so its about 50/50 with people who care and people who don’t. I want to try and either make some music for my future games myself or possibly hire a professional to do it; but again, this is not something I can really say will happen particularly soon unless I just happen upon someone. The final poll from last time asked about pregnancy in adult games, and most of you seem to be either very or mostly positive about the idea, with a few votes in the “meh” or negative area. This is something I want to include in some future games if I can get the time to do it; but doing it well would be a complex mess and take a lot of time that I do not think I can spare at the moment… but we will see what happens. (This was one of many ideas/features that I am considering implementing in the future.)
So then there are the new polls; the first one is a returning old poll that asks how dark you prefer your adult content – fairly self explanatory. The second poll asks how you feel about “micro” adult games; which is to say adult games with an hour or less of total content, regardless of type. And the final poll for this month asks if I should try and make a demo for my upcoming game as well – which is also self explanatory. So let me know about all those!
Finally, we have a small status update; I am still working on event scenes for the new game – as well as trying to arrange some new voice work. Patreon rewards for this month will likely go out around the 13th or so; I want to really try and get some little playable beta thing for some of my Patrons, now that I have some event images to warrant doing so. There also will be a special mini-set poll for my mid-level patrons next month for the December mini-set; to help decide part of it. (I also posted a special Halloween image for all my patrons late on the 31st featuring Helenya.) For those of you that made it this far, keep in mind that I plan to freely release LITC 1 at some point in the near future – I won’t say when exactly. (I may also post one of those event scene previews from last month on here soonish.) I will see what else I can get done in the next week or so; I have several things that I am working on finishing right now – so a lot of other small things might also pop up if things finally pan out a bit in one of several ways. Anyway… I hope to be back here soon with something; so we will see what happens!
Hey. So I sent out Patreon rewards last night – (the mini-set ended up being thirteen images) and I am still working on the event previews for the new game due to a couple delays this past week. However, I have also been investigating other cool new stuff as well as working on a few small side projects as well. I am doing what I can to get the event previews posted within the next couple days – and shortly after that I will post the one character preview here as well. There is also some new DA stuff and that anniversary mini-set coming later this month – in addition to the preview for the upcoming mini-set; which will be the first one of the new batch. (Again, my list of mini-sets included on my Patreon will reset next month – so last call on most of these if you want them.) I am hoping to get a few other little things done this month as well – but we will see what time allows for those.
Anyway – hopefully I will be back soon with previews for both my Patreon page and this one; and I will continue to work on all this and see what else I can get done these coming weeks. 🙂
Hey again. I am back with a quick little update for the site regarding my progress. I just posted the two new early previews for two of the three (currently planned) basic slave girl characters in my new game on my Patreon page – the human and the half-elf. (I hope to get the full elf one ready by next week sometime, either before or after the mini-set preview.) 😀 People allegedly preferred more scenes to visual diversity according to a prior poll, so that is what my plan is right now. The human preview will get re-posted here in a couple weeks – I am not sure about the rest just yet; it mostly depends on the progress I make with the game related stuff. Things are going fairly well as of late; which is nice considering the hurricane and all the other shit that has happened. I am aiming to try and get some semi-playable alpha for my mid-level patrons in time for next month’s main patreon rewards, but we will see if that works out. (There won’t be much to see yet even if I can get something together… but still – some people allegedly want to see early builds, so why not.) 🙂
Again, for any newcomers that may read this – there is all sorts of free content on here (such as the entirety of the “Road to Lithorca” story line sets); check the “Freely released image sets!” tab up top! Other than that, there is a bunch of other newer content from me available via my patreon page, (including my previous full game w/voice bits – “Salune’s Salve Training” – which has a demo available up top!) and/or the link up top to the oronjo webshop that sells my older mini-sets that are no longer offered via my Patreon page.
So I will be back next week with the mini-set preview at the least, we will see what else I manage to have ready by then. In the mean time, the polls could always use more votes – especially the one special poll for the anniversary mini-set; I would think you would all care about free content… this is really weird to me that the most important poll has the fewest votes.
Hey again! So this past week has been messy as well; and thanks to this hurricane crap that is coming it will only get worse apparently. (We will get some rain/outside effects of it where I live; I am not in it’s path or anything) I just sent out Patreon rewards – and I did manage to get the Zayla/tentacles mini-set up to eleven images total; (I redid most of the renders to fix something and added a bit while I was doing that) which is nice for those who get those. 🙂
Otherwise, I also think I have the base code for the new game somewhat ready for now and have since moved on to working on the background images/character stand ups; which I hope to have a few previews of for my patrons next week sometime. I will move to actual event images after that – but I will see how this weather thing goes and what I have time for. (I have had all sorts of emails/messages to write and respond to – including an ongoing issue with DA removing one of my old deviations for no stated reason; and then expecting me to write an appeal when I still don’t even know why it was taken down to begin with…) There was also a setback regarding some new voice work I was hoping to get – (the voice actress is currently having a minor crisis and therefore unable to work for a while) so that is almost certainly pushed back until November unless I decide to find (and/or can find) a replacement.
Also the polls in the right could really use some more votes – especially that special poll regarding the free anniversary mini-set that I make every year; that one has less votes right now than the other two polls… which is just shocking.
So anyway, below is the image that DA deleted and so far refuses to reinstate… for literally no specific reason that they will tell me. It was up for almost three whole years with no issues… and there is nothing wrong with it as far as I can tell from their own content policies. (I am still trying to talk to them, but they have taken over a week to respond each time… and what they say is either useless or wrong – it’s just ridiculous.) I like this image too much to just let it vanish like that; so regardless of whether or not DA decides to get it’s head out of it’s ass or not, here is a re-post of it anyway – though I am sure most of you have seen it already. (There are a few other related images with these two that are still in my DA gallery if you like this and somehow have never looked there before.) I should be back next week with some other update… hopefully things will improve by then; in one of several possible areas.
Hi again. Sorry for this being a couple days late, but the past week has somehow been even worse than the previous three. In addition the the migraines I have had for weeks already, now the humidity/barometric pressure is so weird that my ears are popping/clogging all the time – so my hearing is coming and going as well now. I am doing what I can, but this is all making things far more difficult than they should be – I have basically shifted my schedule back several hours to try and get more time after the heat dies down to get things done. (General work as well, not just work on this project; as things are at their worst mid-day.) This has of course screwed all my plans recently, (along with other assorted setbacks…) for real life and this – but hopefully things will get back to normal soon.
Anyways – I have the old poll results, as well as the new polls posted! For the old polls – the first asked about post frequency vs content; and most seem to prefer a balance… or just more frequent posts. So I will do what I can to get back to that as soon as all the factors involved permit me to do so. The second poll asked about achievements in adult games – and unsurprisingly, most people said they would be in favor of them; so I will consider that for this new game and/or future ones. The last poll was just a fun poll asking what you would do with Helenya if she visited you – and to no-one’s great surprise, most people said they would fuck her and/or be fucked by her until they pass out. 😀
The new polls are also up for around a month – and it’s September once again so the first is a SPECIAL POLL checking who should star in the fourth anniversary mini-set! As before, characters who have already starred in one are not choices again – so it is between Karen, Faye, Lucia, and Tabitha this time. Vote for your favorite, and early next month I will have the results; and hopefully the mini-set itself soon after – and remember, more votes will likely translate into a larger/better mini-set! So everybody make sure to vote. 🙂 The second poll is asking if you would be interested in random other details about characters… this is more related to the new game, but also perhaps to my characters page as well. (I meant this to check as to how much extra info I should have for random slaves in the new game, but if the results are strongly in favor of it – I might also expand the characters page a bit later.) The final poll just asks how you feel about condoms in adult content – pretty self explanatory. So let me know about all that stuff!
As for updates on the new game, I have a bunch of basic side/info screens functioning as far as tests will tell; but I am still testing/working out the main thing I need – getting the character switching to work fully/properly. I think I have it now, but I need to really test this more and make sure there are no weird glitches or anything – and this is all the more difficult with all the headaches I have had from the crap weather over the last month. I hope to begin renders for the actual scenes and such soon – but we will see what happens. I am more or less where I planned to be a bit over a month in – and getting the base code set is the most important thing for a game; as this cannot really be changed out later without causing all sorts of issues. I hope to get this finally situated over the coming weekend, but things have not been going according to plan at all this past month, so we shall see. I hope to be back early next week with another update… we will see what happens before then.
Hey. I just came by with a little status update, as I am not sure when exactly the new DA stuff will be ready. (Should be in the next few days, but the last two have not gone as planned so I am posting this now.) The mini-set from last month ended up at thirteen images; and as you all already know, I managed to even work in a new animation for that last batch somehow.
Also as the title suggests, I sent out the newest version of “Salune’s Slave Training” last Thursday; (1.08) which has all the Zayla voice bits in it that I currently plan to have. So unless there are issues that need to be fixed or this other thing I have been working on acquiring works out, this should be the last version for a while.
I am also working on the new game as well, but most of what I have done so far is researching how to do a few things related to the core of the new game. (This will decide how most of the game works and flows, so it needs to be settled first.) Hopefully I will get this figured out in the next week or two, but I want to get this working as best I can – as I cannot go back and change this later without redoing pretty much everything else. This whole new game project might easily go past the original three month thing I had planned at first, but I had long since known that might be the case; we will see what happens and/or where things are at two months from now. (I have been busy with assorted stuff and the weather here has been awful; which leads to me having migraines every other day recently – as there are thunderstorms and such every other day recently.)
So be sure to vote in the polls on the right, and keep checking back for the new DA stuff in a few days; the new mini-set preview should follow somewhere either late this week or next week. For anyone new that may be stopping by, be sure to check out the tabs up top for a bunch of free story sets and more; and if anyone wants to support my work, check out my Patreon page! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
EDIT 8/21: The last few days have been a complete mess, I have not gotten much for this project done due to having no time; so hopefully the new DA stuff and everything will get situated later this week.
EDIT 8/27: I am still working on the new mini-set preview (patrons know the subject) and one of the new DA images – sorry for the delays but it has been a strange week for many reasons. I should be back with a new post within a couple days though.
Hey again, Sorry for the large time gap in posts, I have been working very hard in several ways and I probably should have posted a small update here last weekend or so; but back at the time I did not think the story set would take as long as it did. (And by Thursday it seemed silly to post such a tiny update here, so I just waited.) The weather here has been crazy and I have had migraines every day for over two weeks now; and it looks like that will continue. Anyways, LITC 5 is done and it ended up being 63 images, each with a clean and story version. I added two little X-ray bits, as well as some other fun themes and stuff that I could work in with the general expansion. That was sent out to appropriate Patreon patrons of mine last night, along with everything else in the current rewards cycle. I was incredibly tired last night though, so I need to check it over for typos and such again; as looking it over back then almost made it worse. Either way, it is my largest story set yet by a couple images, and I like it of course – even if I could not work in a couple of the newer things I wanted to try. (One wasn’t working properly, the other just didn’t really fit this chapter.) As I mentioned before, it will be a few months at least before I make the next LITC chapter; the original plan was 3 months for this new game – but I am leaning towards more at this point, we will see how it goes.
Anyways, I am a bit late – but I am starting actual work/renders on the new game as of next week; but before that though, the votes in the polls on the right of this page are rather low – so more votes there would be nice. The mini-set preview for this month will likely show up in a week or so – I am rather drained at the moment and need time to recharge. I also have a bunch of other little side things I am looking in to… more on those later if any pan out. I should be back next week with some sort of preview/update.
EDIT: I did not realize the one poll was closed for some reason… and apparently has been stuck that way for weeks as I did not scroll down to see it and was too busy working to notice it otherwise – my bad. If anyone wants to vote in the middle poll in the last week or so before it closes, feel free.
Hey again, tiny update here. I have posted the new DA stuff, as the title says – though I am a bit behind schedule as you may have guessed. I hope to have the mini-set preview done soon, but I have a dentist appointment on Monday as well as another thing that I need to do – so I am not sure when it will get posted exactly. The previews for the new story set chapter will also likely be a bit late – like sometime early next month. I also have a new commission that should get done soon in theory. Don’t forget to vote in the polls on the right and check out that last post I made for a voice preview and some other info as to what is going on in the next few months. See you soon.
