Poll and status update: 10/5

Hey again. Sorry for the delay with these posts but I have been busy with all sorts of crap; but among other things, I got my cable lines fixed and a new modem so things seem better but not totally fixed yet. The old polls are done; and I went over the special poll already, so that just leaves the favorite chapter of RTL poll. With this one I was hoping for more votes, but there are enough to see what people seem to like. RTL 3 and 4 seem to be favorites, with 12 and 9 close behind. What makes me happy is that people seem to like most sets to some extent; almost everything got a vote, so it seems that each set was appreciated by someone.

Anyway, two new polls are up for the month; one asks how you feel about female voice acting in adult content… for no particular reason. The top poll asks what you think are the three most important parts of an adult scene; please pick the three things you think are the most important in a good adult scene. (I am rather interested in the results of this poll.) In case you missed the note in the post I just made, I redid the anniversary set the way I did in part because RTL 4 was doing well in the poll at the time. I do really use these poll results and more votes are always appreciated. (As are comments.)

In other news, I hope to have an early Patreon preview of the first chapter of the upcoming city arc for my patrons within a week or so; and then I hope to have the chapter itself done around the end of the month. The preview for this month’s new mini-set and some new DA stuff will get worked in somewhere this month, not sure when yet. Other than that, I plan to be back sometime next week with a new post of some kind, either a status update and/or that RTL reflection/discussion I mentioned before. See you guys again soon!

RLA third anniversary set!

Hi! It’s been a while and assorted wacky issues these past few days have kept me away/busy; (Internet might not even be fixed now, now sure yet) but I am back with the new anniversary set. Sorry for the slight delay and as voted last month; the set features Helenya… but also has a random elf in it for her to play with. A few hours after I posted that message last Saturday I realized that I did not like what I was making for the anniversary set; so I restarted it and made this instead, partly since people seem to like RTL 4 a lot according to the recent poll. There is a good amount of lesbian fun in here with some tail/pussy action. This came out really well in my opinion and I hope you all like it as much as I do. 🙂 I made a slideshow gallery of it this time as well to test that out a bit more; and the download link is after the break.

Quick status update: 9/30

Hey again. I normally try not to do this, but circumstances make this rather necessary. Long story short, my internet connection is having major issues right now and has been for the past few days. I called Comcast several times and apparently service in the area has been having issues for days and for whatever reason nobody investigated this yet. Comcast has no idea what is wrong (no surprise there) and can’t send someone out to check the lines nearby until late tomorrow, which may or may not fix the problem. Since around two days ago, my connection has basically been going up and down randomly, sometimes staying down for hours; and even when it does work, it is usually pathetically slow for some reason.

I am still working on the anniversary set, so it likely would not get done tonight anyway (but it might) – but even if it does get done there is a reasonable chance I will not be able to post it. I decided to come on and let you all know what is going on at the moment since my internet is working right now, and because I have no way to know when it will crap out again. I do hope to be back soon with the anniversary set and new polls, but just in case I am not around for a bit… that is why.

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

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.

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.)

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!

New DA images posted yesterday, status update.

Hey again. I am back with a small status update and the new DA stuff that I posted last night. (I was too tired to post here and Patreon last night so I waited until now.) Sorry about the delays on the DA stuff, but I had to take my car in for repairs earlier this week and lost a lot of spare time related to that.

Regardless, I am working on the new game scene sets, but I am having some technical issues involving scene texture limits with one of the remaining two; so I may have to push that back to next month. I am not totally sure of this yet, but it seems highly likely. Quick note here, I know it seems like I haven’t been doing as much for this project due to working so much on this game, but this is actually a story set worth of work each month; so it is realistically more work for me than before, and I really hope people enjoy it. It is almost done though, so the end is in sight and all that. (Another month or two I think, hard to say.)

Regarding that other thing I mentioned a post or two ago, I still haven’t heard back from the person involved with that yet; so I guess that needs more time. There are a few new commissions for me though on my DA/tumblr, so check those out if you haven’t already. I will be back in a couple days with new polls, so vote now if you haven’t yet!
