Hi again. First off, as you can probably guess from the title, I did reset the Patreon mini-set list starting this month; so only the most recent three will be included when main rewards go out around the 13th or so. (This only applies to the mini-sets for the $15+ tiers; all other content is still included.) I may also adjust a few other things on my Patreon page in the coming weeks, but I don’t have time to fiddle with that at the moment. I did add a new game preview gallery up top by the way, just for convenience; it has the public previews from the old micro VN from last year and the new game in one easy to find place.
As for the polls, the results from last time were rather surprising actually; particularly the voice over poll. As expected, full voice over got one more vote than the other two leading options, but what amazes me is that one of those second place options was that voice work isn’t necessary. Of course I know this to be true, but I didn’t really expect anyone to vote for it here; so the honestly and/or realistic answers were greatly appreciated. I am still looking into this idea, and any real progress seems a long way off, if ever; but if I can get anything it will of course be little snippets and/or SFX for the adult scenes… getting full voice over would be great of course but is unrealistic at this stage for many reasons. The other poll asked about the most important part of an adult scene, and somewhat surprisingly the highest voted answer was the story/setup of the scene, followed by the characters involved… followed by a three way tie for content types, the scenario, and the visuals. (Audio got no votes and dialogue got one as well.) This is good to know, and I hoped to get more votes in this poll; but oh well I guess… I will almost certainly repeat this poll in a year or so to see if things have changed and/or if I can get more votes. This will definitely get used when I design future scenarios.
The new polls are also up; one asks what you think of the galleries on my site so far, and the other asks if you project yourself into adult content. Which is to say, do you imagine yourself as part of a scene when you view it, or do you simply appreciate it as it is with the characters involved? (I saw a small article on this somewhere, figured it would make a fun poll.) So please vote in those and let me know your feelings on this as well.
As for my status on fixing the story set, I think I have fixed it; and it seems that something I added to the scene was the cause of it eating so much memory – still not totally sure on this and I have no idea what it was if so. Regardless, I am trying to work in an additional small scene into this first chapter and I am desperately trying to keep it small and not go all in again. We will find out if that was successful sometime next week… so I will see you then!
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!
Hey again. The results are in for the third anniversary special poll, and Helenya will be the subject of this year’s anniversary set. I kind of figured it would be her or Lucia; but surprisingly Karen came in second place; which is actually kind of a nice surprise. Apparently the people who cared to vote do actually have different tastes, as each girl got at least one vote. I decided against extending this poll since some people did care enough to vote as it was and it seemed only fair to let that stand if nobody else wanted to bother. Thanks to those who did vote.
So that ten-ish image set will get done sometime towards the end of the month, and I hope to have the mini-set preview for this month’s new patreon mini-set later this week. The one poll remaining still could use more votes and is very important; so more votes there would be nice. So check out the game 1.0 post below if you haven’t yet and check back in a few days for a new mini-set preview!
Hi. I am back with the first post of September with the poll results from last time and two new polls, and one of them is the anniversary bonus set special poll! Before that though, the results from last time; one poll asked if people would be interested in a lore/world info page, and everyone who voted said they would definitely be interested. So I will look into this a bit later; but it will take some time so don’t expect this too soon. The other poll asked how often you check this site; and most people seemingly check it around once a week, with a few doing once a month. I tend to post updates once a week now, with some exceptions… but I hope to get back to some small update every few days sometime soon.
Related to that, the new special poll is up for slightly over two weeks and it asks who you would like to see star in this year’s anniversary bonus set; with a choice of the four main female characters that have not yet starred in one: Tabitha, Helenya, Lucia, and Karen. Whoever wins will get a ten(ish) image set made of them later this month, posted for everyone, as before. The other new poll asks which were your favorite chapters of the Road to Lithorca (RTL) story arc, and you can pick your three favorites! While this may be slightly less exciting than the poll above it; is is far more important for assorted reasons. It would be great if a lot of people could pick their three favorite chapters of RTL, and even better if people could leave comments and explain WHY they are their favorites.
I do listen to these poll results and take those and assorted comments/requests into consideration when making new stuff; (I have put in and/or made several things just because someone asked me about it) so this is kind of really important with the completion of the game about a week away. I currently plan to start working on the first chapter of the city arc soon after that, and shortly after work starts on that I plan to make a large post here with some assorted thoughts about the RTL story arc before that gets done (but after this poll is over). So please vote in both polls and/or leave comments letting me know what your favorite RTL chapters were and why!
I will be back in about a week when the 1.0 release of the game is ready and I will have assorted new info and one or two new previews for it, so look forward to that as well.
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.
Hey again; happy fourth of July for those who celebrate it. Anyway, there are two shiny new polls up; one asks how excited you are for this game I am almost done with (:D), and the other asks if you read story sets even if they don’t have your favorite content/character in it. Please vote in those and let me know your thoughts on these things! As for the old polls, the first one was actually somewhat close; but clearly people favor the story images over the clean ones… but I still think it is good to include both. The other previous poll asked how you all felt about online image galleries; and clearly people like them, so later this month I will look into that… I know there are options for it in wordpress somewhere/somehow.
I am currently hard at work on a new scene set for the game and whatever else I can squeeze in before early next week; after which I should have a lot more time for all this once again. We will see what comes of that, but I do hope everyone is looking forward to this slave training game I have made; surprisingly little remains to be done… but I am still unsure of exactly how much extra I want to stuff in before I say it is “done”.
I should be back in a week or so with some update. Quick final note: to the person with a commission currently in progress, if you somehow read this but haven’t checked your email for some reason, please do so; I have been waiting for a response from you for a week and a half.
Hey guys. I am back with a short status update and the poll results/new poll update. First off, I have one new image scene set for the game ready to be rendered this weekend; and I think I will have time to get the second one done as well before the 12th or so when rewards get sent out if all stays calm. I also posted a long post to my patreon page a while ago with some ideas I have been considering for future content; I am not sure when I will go over some of that here, but I likely will at some point.
Anyway, last month’s polls asked two things; first of all, I asked your gender and it seems most people who answered are male, which is no real surprise… but there were a few girls out there as well which is nice. The other poll asked what gender you prefer for player characters in adult games, and it seems most people prefer futa with female being a close second; it was only two votes off from a tie. There were also two votes for male, but that seems to be a distant third compared to the other two. As noted, I have already made a micro VN with a female main character, and the game I am working on now has Salune as the main focus/character; so I have sort of covered both of these. I have mentioned previously though that I am not the biggest fan of futa, and though I do make stuff with futa content, I try to mix it in only once in a while; both to keep it special and to allow for some other content types as well. What I am trying to say here is that both because I am about to finish a game with mostly futa content and because of my preferences, I think a female main character is much more likely in my next game… whenever that is.
Also, there are two new polls up; one asks which version of an image set you look at first, story or clean and the other asks how you feel about adult image galleries; since I am considering throwing one in on my site with all the assorted previews posted together. Please vote in these new polls and I will be back next week with some other update; I have several other smaller things in the works at the moment as well and if everything goes perfectly I may be able to get one posted shortly after my patreon rewards go out.
Hi again. So it’s been a while but so far things have actually gotten better for me in terms of my back. It would seem that I have gotten used to this almost, due to it happening so many times that I now know how best to deal with it. I am by no means 100% yet, but I am far better than I was last post. I added a couple images to the last mini-set; though one is an unused render that has only minor differences. I also have been working towards some content for the hopeful game beta update when rewards go out next week sometime. I still do not want to promise anything, but I am fairly sure I will have something to add; I will not know more until mid weekend sometime. However, I needed to post now to update the polls and I just thought I would mention how things are going. I have a few nice commissions that were done for me by people on deviantart few weeks ago, but for whatever reason both people in question have basically gone AWOL for two weeks with no real explanation, so they haven’t been posted yet.
As for the polls, last month asked how much story vs sex you prefer in your content; and unsurprisingly most people prefer a balance, with some leaning towards more sex. I think I have tended to lean towards mostly sex in my story sets, with only the first RTL chapter what I would call a balance of story and sex due to the sheer amount of stuff that needed to be set up and/or explained. I will see about working in more story in the future, but with little to no real feedback in general, I have no real choice but to do just what I am doing and hope for the best. (So actual comments would really help.) The other poll asked about clothing in sex scenes, and interestingly most people preferred little to no clothing at all. I actually usually tried to keep character’s clothes on in many cases, which is of course much harder for me; so apparently I don’t really need to keep doing that per se, which I will definitely keep in mind. The new polls are up, the first is from around two years back and asks what kind of player character you prefer in adult games and the second one is also a poll from two years ago, asking your gender. (I am just curious how things have changed in two years, if at all.)
It would also be really great if anyone wanted to leave an actual written comment with either general feedback for me and/or explaining their character preference from that first poll. As I have mentioned, I do take polls into consideration, but I take written comments and such far more seriously. I plan to post again sometime mid-next week with an update regarding my progress on the game beta and whatever else.
Hi again. I’m back with the prior poll results and new polls! The first old poll asked how much text you prefer in adult games, and the vast majority of people took the middle option; which is what I figured would happen. (So I will try to keep things balanced in the game as it is.) The other old poll asked which of my pages you look at regularly (which got few votes) seems to indicate that most people only check my main page here, and a couple check my DA page and one checks my Patreon page. You guys may want to check out my other pages every so often, as I do try to post some things there every now and then; especially on DA I get most of the commissions I have done posted/linked there. But most things do go here, so I guess that makes sense and it is what I expected.
There are new polls up as well so check those out! One asks how much clothing you prefer on characters during sex in adult images, and the other is an old poll from around two years ago brought back; that asks how much story and/or sex you prefer in adult image sets. So check those out and let me know your thought there; I will be back late this week and/or early next week with a status update and hopefully some new content of some sort!
Hi. So first of all, there are two new polls up; though votes last month were rather low for whatever reason. The new polls ask which of my pages you check regularly and how much text you prefer with your adult game scenes. More votes than last time would be appreciated; both of these will be used fairly soon as well. Last month’s polls polls seem to indicate that most people prefer darker themed adult stories/sets, and that most people would be interested in a short story if/when I make one. I know a few votes were scattered elsewhere, and there will be some less dark content still; but I mainly have to take away the general consensus of people who voted.
As for the status update; I posted to my patrons a few days ago about how I am reworking some planned scene sets in the game a bit and changing at least two right now. I am currently rendering some cool new scene sets; theoretically being two of three that I know people really prefer and/or want to see. (Monsters!) So far so good, but it is too early to say for sure yet how it will all go. I hope to get rewards sent out late next week, but I will say by the 13th to be safe; just in case I need next weekend to fix some things. (The last two… three weeks really have been a mess for all sorts of unpredictable reasons.) So the updated beta coming in should be quite nice; even nicer still if I can get time to add in some variations and other small improvements that I am looking into right now. I may also post another public preview from these two scene sets I am working on; but that is still up in the air.
