Polls and poll discussions go here.

Some polls come, some polls go.

Hi again. I am back with the poll results from last time… for what little there was – as well as new polls. The one poll asked about adult game length – and the only two votes were both for “small, 2-3 hrs”… so that is clear. For what it is worth, future games I have planned at the moment would be little micro VNs or some such and would likely fall into this time area, or perhaps the one just below it. The other old poll asked about favorite contest type – and one vote said design contest, one vote said challenge contest, and the last one was “other, leave comment” – except they did not leave a comment, so that is basically a null vote. Interestingly, I was trying to decide between art, writing, and design contest originally – I had not really given the challenge one too much thought… but I will see what ends up happening if I go through with the contest idea in a couple months or whenever. There does not seem to be a lot of interest in a contest anyway, judging by the low number of votes in the polls – so I cannot say if it is even a major possibility that this might happen. (Really not sure why votes were so low – there were a lot of views last month; and this was rather important…)

As for new polls – there are two again. The first asks for your thoughts on the “short” story I wrote to go with May’s mini-set preview, here: (http://redleatherart.com/wp/?p=2552). The second poll asks about your thoughts on different sized characters in adult content; and I don’t mean proportions, I mean physically larger or smaller characters. Do please let me know your thoughts on those… again, both may be relevant rather soon – so votes/feedback are/is greatly appreciated.

In terms of other stuff, I am still working to finish the new DA/slushe stuff; and I hope to have that all totally done/rendered sometime over the coming weekend. After that, I have to jump back and finish making/rendering the mini-set that I recently posted a preview of. So the next week and a half or so are already packed… but I will see how things go in regard to maybe posting a little something else a bit sooner. In the mean time, check out all the assorted freely released content here if you haven’t already, (linked above) and preferably vote in the new polls… and I will be back in a few days with some new stuff for my other pages!

New polls up, and old polls results!

Hi again. I am back as I said with the results from the May polls, and two new polls for June! (Quick reminder though, I did just post the “””short””” story that goes with the mini-set/preview from last month here on the site – for those interested.) The first poll from last month asked what your favorite setting for adult short stories was – and unsurprisingly, most people prefer fantasy… with modern and sci-fi in second and third place, respectively. There were a couple scattered votes for the other options as well; but it seems pretty definite in regard to the base results – and I obviously plan to stick with fantasy for the most part, anyway. (I have dabbled in sci-fi and even a modern mini-set though… so I will consider this.)

The other poll was far more complicated – and it asked about favorite monster types, and as you would expect the results are a bit long… but let me go over the top ones. There was a tie for first place, between tentacle beasts and dryads/nymphs… which is interesting; of course there will be more tentacles, no worries there – but I have wanted to try and work in some more female monsters/creatures in to some of my work as well… so I will see what happens in upcoming mini-sets and the like. Second place was a three way tie – with demons, dragons, and slimes. Demons is a sure thing, much like tentacles – dragons I did once in a mini-set, and plan to try again sometime; and slimes I also did once in SST, and would like to try again in some capacity. Third place was another tie between dire wolves and snakes/nagas – both of which I have tried at least once… (there was a dire wolf in the recent “short” story as well) and will likely do again at some point. Fourth place was a four way tie with parasites, fairies, doppelgangers, and centaurs. I did a doppelganger mini-set recently – and I have done a parasite mini-set in the past, though it was sci-fi themed… but I do not think I have done anything with fairies or centaurs yet – and I have actually thought about both semi-recently… so that might happen soon-ish. I won’t go over the remaining bits from this poll – those were the top options, so that is more or less what I will try to keep in mind for future content. πŸ™‚

As for the new polls – there are two, one asks about what type of contest your prefer (I am strongly considering doing one over the summer… just not sure what kind) and a returning old poll asking about how long you prefer your adult games/VNs! Check those out on the right there, and let me know your thoughts – especially for the contest one. Otherwise, I plan to be back in a week or so with some sort of update and the rewards for my Patreon patrons. (I have to finish rendering/making the rest of the mini-set from last month first.) I have some DA/side stuff to make this month, in addition to a new mini-set and continuing to work on the new game when I can… so we will just have to see what happens. Do check out my assorted content, both here and on other pages if you haven’t already… and I will be back soon!

Last two poll results, new polls, and a preview.

Hi again. So I am back again with the old poll results and some new polls. For the previous polls, apparently 3/5 of people would probably be interested if I did another contest… so I will keep that in mind for later this summer (considering maybe doing one of two options); and unsurprisingly, most people only buy adult content ‘sometimes’ and/or never. (Which isn’t too helpful.)

As for the new polls, one is the return of the big monster poll – asking you to pick your five favorite monster types in regard to adult content. The other simply asks what your favorite genre/setting for adult stories is. So please vote in those and let me know what you all prefer. πŸ™‚

So I will not bother making two posts for this – but below is another early preview from one of the training events in the new game that I am working on. (My patrons saw this two months back.) Zayla is giving the half-elf slave girl quite the anal experience, using her magic crystal dildo that heats up and vibrates… but she and the other slaves will learn to love it. πŸ˜€

Quick side note, I am having second/third thoughts about using gumroad to sell my old mini-sets; as I just do not see it working in the long term… I may just use my Patreon page to do it somehow – I am still thinking this over. (I can’t really afford to just host a webshop here because of the required SSL certificates.) I am also still working on the new DA stuff, that will hopefully come in the next few days.

If anyone out there want to help support me working on this new game… and/or get access to the full games I have already made, such as the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training – which are still available via my Patreon page. I have also recently restarted work on my upcoming game once more – though of course more support means more time I can take/spare to work on all this… and the sooner everything can/will get done; anyways, check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

 

New polls for April, old polls results.

Hi again. So I am back with new polls and the results from last time – but there were not many votes in the polls last time; so the results are a bit basic. One poll asked if you liked the short story I posted with the February mini-set preview, and the only two votes cast seemed to like it (which is nice); the other poll asked if you preferred active or passive female characters in adult content – and this was a flat out tie… so I am effectively still where I started with that one. As I already said, I hope to try and get another short story bit done with the mini-set preview for this month… if I still have it in me after working on the game until then.

As for the new polls – one asks about whether or not you would enter if I hosted another contest… and the other one is an old poll brought back, asking how often you buy adult content! More votes in these polls would be appreciated… as I likely will not bother with the contest idea this summer if nobody even shows enough interest to vote. It will probably be another short story contest… but I may also try something else – like fanart or something. (This is all theoretical at this stage, but I am attempting to see if there is even any interest – so make sure to vote in these polls.)

In regard to other stuff… I am working on that final update to SST as well as finishing some new renders for the new game – but more on that in a week or so when I know what I managed to get done for sure. I also plan to just try and replace my old oronjo shop with a gumroad page – as pretty much everyone else uses it, regardless of adult content… so I am just hoping it will work as there do not seem to be any good alternatives other than hosting my own webshop here on the site which would require a lot of work on my part and for me to buy/maintain an SSL certificate. I will see when I can get to doing that… and I will not have more details until later – but that is my plan for the moment. I am also looking into having one or two other pages elsewhere that I will link/mention if it works out. Still waiting on final approval for that latest commission – but I should be back with that very soon. πŸ™‚

Poll results/review, and new polls.

Hi again. This is a bit later than I was hoping for, but my weekend and last few days in general have been a busy mess. The old polls are now concluded; and two new polls are up! The two new polls ask what you thought of that short story I posted with February’s mini-set preview, and also if you prefer female characters to be active or passive in adult content. So please vote in those and let me know what you think!

As for the old polls: almost nobody voted in the first one, which asked about options vs. detail in adult games – but clearly the people who did vote prefer more options… so I will keep that in mind. As for the fetish poll: there were a lot of votes, but apparently most people did not actually pick seven things – and so the totals are a bit off. I will not go over every single thing as I did years ago; but I will go over the top voted entries.

The clear favorite was pregnancy/impregnation… with 16 votes; the only one to make it into double digits – so I will keep that in mind for future content, though I already do a decent bit with this somewhere in there anyway. πŸ™‚ Second place was tentacles and lactation/milking – tentacles I already have done a good bit of and there will definitely be more, so no worries there… and lactation/milking I have only done a little so far, but I have some things in mind for the near future in the main story and such – so more of that will come soon. Third place was futa… which I already have done a large amount of, but there will be more of that for sure. Fourth place was another tie for corruption and sexual slavery/captives… sexual slavery/captives is something I have definitely done and there will be more of that for certain, with captives in future story bits; corruption on the other hand is not exactly something I was planning on – at least not anytime soon… but I will see what I can come up with. Fifth place was ironically a five way tie between creampies, lesbian sex, femdom, bondage and vaginal sex; all of which have been done a lot already and will continue to happen, no worries there. The remaining votes were scattered around, with many things that I thought would do better with few or even no votes; but I attribute this to there being so many options, and also most people not voting for the full seven items.

As for what I am doing at the moment, I am still trying to deal with all kinds of assorted things regarding the voice acting… including that one new mess; so I am not sure what will get done within the next week or so – but I will see what I can do as always. I might be back with a small update in a couple days – more on that if it happens.

New polls for February!

Hi again. I am back with the first post of this month; and as you would expect, it is a review of the old polls, and an introduction to a few new ones. As for the old polls, one asked how you felt about my new lore page – and the few votes that were cast seem to like it; so I will call that a win. The second old poll asked about voiced animations, and unsurprisingly, most people prefer them… and I will see about that fairly soon. The last poll asked about which of my characters was your favorite; and there were not that many votes cast – but Zayla and Helenya were tied for first place, with Tabitha, Lucia, and Salune tied for second… Karen was in third with one vote – and I guess Faye is too new compared to the others, as she did not get any this time around. (Not many votes overall though.) Anyway, it is nice to see that the majority of my characters are appreciated; and I will attempt to drive up interest in the two that scored lowest whenever I can get back to making story sets… but that is a little ways off right now.

As for the new polls, there are only two this time, as one of them is massive; the first poll asks if you prefer more options in event scenes in adult game or instead prefer more detail, and less options. However, another very large older poll is also back; and it is the massive fetish poll! I did this over two years ago – and it is now time to see what has changed if anything; so do vote for your top SEVEN (7) favorite fetishes from all the ones listed! There are all the ones from last time, with a few new ones – I tried to include all fetishes that I would do (or have already done) and a few others that I am considering; with only a couple that I either can’t or won’t do purposely left out.

As for what else is going on, I am still sorting through all this voice work while also trying to get one other new thing sorted… we will see what happens in the next week or so – I should be back with some sort of update if nothing else next week. So in the mean time, definitely vote in the new polls and let me know what your favorite options are!

Another new year, more new polls!

Hey guys. I am back with the first post of the new year; I hope everyone had a nice time over the holiday(s). Just as a quick recap in case anyone missed my last post – the “World Info/Lore” page is now available up top with some additional information on assorted places/groups featured in my work. So definitely check that out if you are interested and have not done so already. πŸ˜€ In other news, I still have my various voice auditions to manage for another two weeks or so; but I hope to try and restart work on my new game this month – despite me likely having limited time to do much, given everything else that I already have to do. (Having my previous voice actress quit really threw a wrench in my plans, but I somehow got the auditions up quick and am set to have this fixed fairly soon… or at least have the actresses decided- I then of course have to actually write/order the actual voice bits.

Anyways – in regard to last month’s polls; there were three, though once again one got far more votes than the other two… I am not sure if this is simply because it was on top, or if someone stuffed it, or if people just felt strongly about it – but whatever. The top poll asked about breast size preferences… and “Realistic/Average” got a large chunk of votes – with “Large” in second place with around half as many… and then “Huge” after that with two, and assorted single votes for almost all the rest. Ironically, this was already somewhat my plan anyway; as two of the three new female characters I am waiting to introduce into the main story (this probably will not happen for a while – it is several chapters off for these two in particular) likely fit this description… well one for sure, the other may be more of a “Above Average” – I am not entirely sure. I will also consider this for the third girl who is not finalized yet… and we will see what happens. (Faye and this one not yet introduced character were supposed to represent the extremes in terms of breast size.) The second poll asked how you feel about established characters changing hairstyles, at least temporarily; and this was almost a complete four-way tie. The best I can take away from this is that most people seem to be fairly ok with it; as the “Stay the same” option was the one with one less vote – so I will consider this. The last poll got a disappointing amount of votes for whatever reason; but I thank those who did vote in it. (I kind of expected this… which is why it was just a fun poll and not a special one.) For this one, the top two answers were “A titjob from Zayla” and “A pussy creampie from Salune”… with one vote for “Giving Karen a creampie” – so it is clear what/who some people prefer. πŸ™‚

As for the new polls, there are three – as per usual recently. (Please vote in all three.) The first one asks which of my main female characters so far is your favorite (for whatever reason), and please pick three. The second poll asks if you prefer animations with or without voice/sound. Finally, the third poll asks what you think of the new “World Info/Lore” page. πŸ˜€ Anyways, I will be back in a week or so with some sort of status update around the time I send out Patreon rewards – so I will talk to you again then!

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.

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!

Special poll results, new polls, other news.

Hi again. So I have taken down the polls from last month and put a few new ones up. The results for the special poll were rather depressing – with a grand total of two votes, both for Faye. I have no idea why votes were so low this time around; but it does not bode well for next year – I will say that much. (I never did another contest because the first one didn’t get much legitimate interest; I do have several ideas for another one though, should that ever change.) I really would have thought that a free image set would garner more interest than this. However, I will make a four image mini-set starring Faye and post it a bit later this month… it will only be the bare minimum number of images this time since nobody seemed particularly interested. As for the other polls, the one condom one was a total tie, which is not helpful; but I am not a huge fan of condoms so that is not likely to happen anyway. (Nobody voted for the highly positive option – so that is my take-away from this one.) The last poll was also rather balanced in terms of results – but it seems to indicate that most of you would be interested in having more information about characters you like – or at least not opposed to it.

As for the new polls, the first one asks what your favorite adult game type is, and please pick three (3) – just to check that again a few years later and see what has changed… if anything. The second poll asks how you feel about the music in adult games – so let me know; as this will be used rather soon potentially. The third poll asks how you feel about pregnancies in adult games… so let me know about that also if you would.

Other than all this, I am currently working on the event images for the game as well as some of the coding bits for the random character generation thing. (I apparently need to add bits to it to get it to work the way I want and do all that i need.) So rather than have anything playable in a week or so; I just hope to have an event preview or two before then for my Patreon patrons. (As noted previously, there would not have been much to it at this stage anyway – plus, more people get to enjoy the event previews; so I think this will work out better for now.) I will continue to work on this and hopefully have something together for next month; for those patrons of mine that get access to the beta versions. I will also post one of the character previews here a bit later this month, we will see what else I have by then. I may also post LITC 1 publicly next month; but that is up in the air still. (I might have a little side thing for my patrons soon as well, not entirely sure just yet; I am working on several smaller things on the sidelines.)

Also a warning – my Patreon mini-set list is going to reset starting next month, so this is the last month to get the full set of currently offered mini-sets; which will be eight (8) total once rewards for this month go out in a week or so. So if anyone out there wants access to this batch of mini-sets before most of them are retired to my oronjo shop, now is the time to get them from my Patreon.
