Status updates go here.

Status update: 1/13

Hi again. Sorry that this is a fair bit later than I was planning, but things have been rather messy this past week or so; and not just because of the weather (a lot of snow here right now) – though that is definitely not helping. I just sent out Patreon rewards – including the significantly expanded mini-set from last month; which ended up being 21 images (including one x-ray alternate and two unused renders) – over double the original (almost triple)! I rather liked this one and had fun with it – (I may also revisit this scenario/concept in the future…) it was hard to stop it where I did; even if the advanced lighting made renders take twice as long as usual – hence the longer time to get all this done. I do really need to stop adding so much to these mini-sets… they are supposed to be 4-5 images and somehow end up being in the double digits fairly regularly now; that or I need to reset the mini-set list sooner than six months or something to balance out the extra content – we will see. This was probably also once of the most visually complex image sets that I have done so far (hard lighting, reflections, etc) – and I think it looks really nice. πŸ˜€

As things stand now, I am not sure what major work I will be able to put forward on the new game this month; I have a lot left to do to get the voice work all situated – even after the auditions end on Monday. (Finalizing stuff with the actresses, writing/checking the scripts, sending those and then waiting for the voice work to get done… and then I have to cut/label it all and actually implement a lot of it into my previous game.) So I will likely focus on that this month, while doing a bit of the event writing for the new game if I can; and try to work in the (relevant) new voice work into SST if it gets done (and I can cut/process all of it) relatively soon – as I would hope it would.

So I plan to be back late this week sometime (like Thursday or Friday at the earliest I would think) with the new mini-set preview for this month; and we will see what else happens between then and now… as I am working on a few other side things still. πŸ™‚

World Info/Lore page finally done; also another game preview.

Hi again everyone. I am back with the last post of this year; as you can tell from the title and probably see for yourselves, I have finally finished and posted the “World Info/Lore” page that is now available up top!

This page has a bunch of background information about assorted places and groups that are in my assorted works… that currently totals to around 7400 words, counting all sections. I know there are a at least few people out there that will be interested in this… and hopefully there aren’t too many grammatical errors and such in it; I am far too tired to read it all over again. (I will check it over again in a week or two.) I had to cut a few sections off a little early as it was getting close to the end of the year; but this should be fine for now – as many of the other places mentioned will not really be actively used for quite a while. (I really wanted to finally get this done this year, and I finally had the chance.) I may also add to and/or expand this a bit later… but we will see what happens and/or when.

Anyways, the new public preview for the game I will resume working on next month is below; this was available to my Patrons a month or two ago – as is one or two other previews that you all have not seen yet. (One is animated.) If anyone actually wants to play my previous games and see the other chapters of LITC, or possibly the current mini-sets and more… (old mini-sets available through oronjo via the link up top) consider supporting me on my Patreon page! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Happy New Year and all that; I will be back with new polls and the old poll results in a few days.

New DA stuff posted, other voice audition also posted!

Hey again. Just a quick update – as the title suggests, I have just posted some new content into my DA gallery; so definitely check that out. (Two images are brand new!) I also posted that other audition I mentioned in hopes of finding some voice actresses yesterday, and it is here: https://www.castingcall.club/projects/assorted-adult-content. It is effectively the same as the other audition that I posted last week, just allegedly this site gets more traffic – and so hopefully I will get more interest. (I already have more auditions here than on the old one – after only one day as compared to a week and a half…)

If you are visiting my site from one of the two auditions – Hi there! πŸ˜€ Please check out my assorted characters on the “Characters” page up top – as well as the recent previews of my work. There are also the previews and demo from my last game up in the “Game preview gallery” page – as well as the many story sets I have freely available that are all in the “Freely released image sets” tab up there. πŸ™‚ (If you are looking for something specific, you can find specific types/character’s content by using the ‘tags’ on each post.)

So anyway, please vote in the polls on the right if you haven’t yet – and I want to wish all of you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and all that; and I should be back with some sort of status update before the end of the year. (I am also still trying to finally get this Lore page totally situated before the new year, but I have had so much to do up through tonight – we will see what happens next week.)

Status update: 12/13 – Voice actress audition posted!

Hey again everyone. I’m back with a status update for all of you; the most important part of which you can guess from the title of this post. Other stuff first though; I just sent out Patreon rewards a short while ago – the mini-set for last month ended up at 11 images, by the way. As for current plans, I hope to finish the new DA images in a few days and post those and then move on to the new mini-set as soon as that poll is finished early next week. After that we will see if I have time to work on new game content or what happens, but I was planning to take the last week of the month off due to the holidays and everything. (I am close to finishing one other new written bit for the site… we will see if I can get that totally done soon – I keep adding to it and forgetting to finish it.) Do vote in the polls on the right here if you haven’t already! πŸ™‚

Anyway – I am sure you all noticed the title of the post; and I have gone ahead and started up an audition to try and find some new voice actresses! (I decided to use what time I had this past week to set up that voice acting audition and get all that sorted out to hopefully get that done sooner; as I have to leave it up for a month or so.) I have no idea how I got myself back together enough after that mess early this month to just go right back into this voice business again, but somehow I did. So, if by some chance you happen to be a voice actress (professional or aspiring) that does adult content… then perhaps you might be interested in maybe voicing one of my characters! So check out the audition listed below! (All of my female characters that are not currently taken are up for auditions right now – including the slave characters in the new game.)

If you are checking out my page from the audition, welcome! πŸ˜€ There are several pages listed up top with many preview galleries and other free content – as well as my characters page. (My entire first story arc, Road to Lithorca is available free; along with many other special image sets and the first chapter of Life in the City.)

I am really hoping that something good will come of this; but worst case, I just waste even more of my time. However, I was told a long while ago (by someone that had good voice actresses) that this forum was the place to go to get voice actresses for adult content… so I really, really hope things work out this time – as contacting several directly has mostly not gone well at all. (That last mess just drained me – but as I mentioned, I may as well get this audition started now; the sooner it starts, the sooner it ends.) I have no idea what will happen of course, but things seem promising so far. (At the very least, it cannot possibly go worse than last time; because I am not letting it get anywhere close to that level again.) Depending on what I can get, I may or may not adjust some future content (animations, games) to fit what voices I may have. Absolute worst case – I am stuck with only what i already have and I then have to figure something else out… but I have a feeling that I will get something from this at the minimum.

December polls, and some bad news.

Hi again. I am back with the first post of the month – which has the usual new poll info and the previous poll results. (And some very recent bad news – I was ready to post the new polls last night until that second bomb dropped and pushed this back into today.)

Last month, there were three polls – the first asked how dark you prefer your adult content; and unsurprisingly most people leaned towards the dark end of the spectrum offered. Nobody said they preferred cuddly content, but there were a few scattered votes for semi-consensual and lighter options; and those will still be done from time to time. However, it should be rather obvious at this stage that I tend to work somewhere within the mid-dark area here; so the S/M sexual slavery option, leaning a bit on either end of it at times. (Most people voted for that, so that is good.) The second poll asked how you all feel about micro adult games – and most of you say it totally depends; with a few votes in favor… and none explicitly against. I will keep this in mind – I have a few ideas regarding this that I hope to work on next year sometime… if I can get the time/interest to warrant it. The last poll asked if I should make a demo of this new game, and all votes were for yes; though there were only a third as many votes here as the top poll for some reason – so I am not quite sure how to take that. (I will see about this later.)

There are also the new polls – there are three again. The first is a returning old poll which asks about your breast size preference in adult content. The second asks how you feel about established characters changing hairstyles – likely not permanently, but at least temporarily. And the last poll is just a fun poll asking which of the options given would be your ideal christmas present. (I wanted to do another special poll this month, but almost nobody voted in the last one; so I am not going to bother.) Preferably vote in those and let me know what you think about all that.

In addition to those polls, there is also a mini-set poll for my mid-level patrons up on my Patreon page – to decide the contents of this month’s mini-set; which will be open for another two weeks (until the 18th) if anyone is interested.

As for the bad news… that is twofold. First, I am sure most of you have already heard about tumblr’s upcoming policy change banning porn as of December 17th; which is all kinds of upsetting. However, when blogger (google) announced something similar in the past, they went back on it (rather quickly too) – so we will see if this actually comes to pass. (If google backed off, I can’t imagine tumblr will actually do it; that would be akin to sinking their own ship – as porn is mostly what tumblr is used for from what I know.) Worst case, I have my site here already; this is of course much more damaging for people who only have/use tumblr – but it is disappointing none the less.

Second, I was just told last night around 8 PM that the voice work I arranged for back in August – and have been waiting almost five months for… is no longer going to be done; as the voice actress apparently has better things to do all of a sudden – and no longer wants to bother with my project(s). I am not going to get into how completely unprofessional and downright cruel this is to do to someone after agreeing to do it and making them wait for almost five months; and I suppose it is partly my fault for being so nice – and constantly waiting and putting up with excuses… but this is still all kinds of disappointing/depressing. (This is why I try to do everything myself; I only get outside assistance when absolutely necessary.) I have already not been having a great time recently (due to assorted factors); and my motivation for all this was already really low – this was a shotgun blast to the back that I did not need at all. Of course I attempted to contact her again to try and get her to reconsider, but a full day later I have not gotten any response whatsoever; so things are likely going to stay as they are now. (I do not think that I can trust her anymore anyway after this – even if she does change her mind; but it was worth a try.)

I already had talks with another voice actress fall through last month; which was bad enough – but this really screws me quite a bit. Of course, the voice work was far from critical – and I will have to look into finding a replacement soon enough; but this is still shocking to just have happen all of a sudden when I had no doubts before now… as far as I knew, everything was fine. Sorry to disappoint some/all of you in the short term; but I promise none of you feel as bad about this as I do – with me having written probably over a hundred emails and wasted countless hours (probably days) composing those as well as various scripts (and checking voice tests) over the past several months.

I don’t know what I will be able to get done these next few days anymore – I feel genuinely sick right now for all sorts of reasons and I justΒ  cannot do anything useful at the moment… I will see how things are in another day or two. I will do the best that I can, but things are not going well at all right now; and this new development is almost certainly going to affect things. Despite progress on this new game being way behind what I was hoping for, I was still confident in all this until last night when I read that email. I hope to be back next week or so with some other update or something… I do not know what/when exactly.

LITC chapter one, “Matt is Missing” free release, status update!

Hey again everybody. First, the status update… as I know why most of you are reading this. πŸ™‚ So I sent out a gif preview of the new animation that I am refining for the new game to my Patrons last Saturday night – and from a construction standpoint it is the longest that I have made so far, and it is of the oral/service type. (100 frames, but that isn’t actually that much time wise – except I assemble these manually…) It features the one slave girl that you all have not yet seen; the human slave girl… I went with a more lithe and muscular body type for her – which I have not really tried yet… so we will see if/how people like it. (I wanted a good mix represented by the three slave girls – and I think that is what I have.) I hope to get the mini-set preview for this month posted later this week as well, but I wanted to post this now.

So…. in regard to the main content of this post; it is finally time to freely release LITC chapter one! LITC 1 starts the new story arc with a “double-issue” as I originally tried to do with RTL – so there are two little side stories happening at the same time in here. The first story revolves around James ‘meeting’ the temporary guildmistress of the adventurer’s guild (Faye); and the other has Tabitha meeting one of the most famous courtesans in Lithorca – Karen. This is 52 images of all sorts of fun, check the tags for more specifics; and as always each image has a clean and a story version.

I do not know when I will freely release the other chapters of LITC; if things were better, I could just give everything out when it is made. (Maybe someday things will get to that point.) I also have not worked on a new story set in several months as I have been working on other things. My available time right now is totally taken up by working on the new game; and I may have two other considerable side projects to do very soon if my attempts at acquiring more voice work pan out in the near future. (I have to check/prepare it all and hopefully work some into the previous game as well as this new one.) There will be a Patreon mini-set poll next month, for anyone interested in that… I am not certain of anything else next month at this stage – as per always, I will do the best I can. (I am doing 4-5 people’s worth of work for this game – so it is taking longer than I was originally thinking; especially because I wanted to make the three slave character’s scenes different in regard to the dialogue, not just the event scene… but so far things seem really good.)

Below are the original LITC 1 previews, re-posted for convenience; (two clean, two story) and after the “continue reading” break areas under those is the download link (the password is still “redleatherart”) – so if you want to see more of this new story arc, (it currently goes up to chapter five) or if you just want to help support me and my assorted works, please check my Patreon page! (Also happy early Thanksgiving.) πŸ˜€

Status update: 11/15, and a new slave character preview!

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. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ˜€

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. πŸ˜€

More retired mini-sets listed on oronjo, and an event scene preview!

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. πŸ˜€

Some poll results, new polls, and a status update.

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!

Status update: 10/13

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. πŸ™‚
