Status update: 12/30, and Happy New Year!

Hey. No previews to post yet, but I wanted to post a written update. Due to assorted delays prior to this, I am just now getting ready to do main renders for most of the new images planned to be implemented into the game next week. I will post at least one new public preview sometime next week; I have not decided which one to do yet. Regardless, I think I have the event randomizer thing working again, and I hope to get that implemented sooner rather than later. This may mean an additional variation or two (either written or visual) to existing events, rather than one entirely new one right now if it does work with no issues. I started all this later than I planned and it is looking rough for me to hit my goal of getting the game about halfway done in a week and a half(ish), but I am going to do the best that I can. (I am taking tomorrow off.) Mid-level patrons get whatever I have done either way.

So please vote in the polls if you haven’t yet, check the new stuff on my DA page if you haven’t looked this month, and then check back next week/year for a new preview/more details about the next set of events. In the mean time, I hope you all have a happy new year!

December Patreon mini-set preview and happy holidays!

Hey again, I have most of the new DA stuff posted; with one/two more possibly to come if I can get it to render properly either tonight/monday. Either way, happy holidays to all of you and below is a preview of this month’s Patreon mini-set, as voted for by receiving patrons. The set features Helenya “meeting” another demon by an abandoned shrine in desperate need of release; and she is happy to provide assistance. This mini-set is currently five images, but that may go up. (There is still a month or so to get all these old mini-sets, for those interested.)

In other news, I am rather behind in terms of where I planned to be, but that is hardly surprising; I plan to take tomorrow off and then see what I can do with the next two weeks in terms of game content additions. There is a ton of stuff to do and I am sort of planning some tweaks to existing stuff as well; so there is no telling how much will get added at this stage. I am still aiming for 3-4 new scene sets; but that seems optimistic at this point. I will likely post next week with some kind of update on my progress, although I am still unsure if I will post more public image previews at this stage in development. (I will likely do at least one.)

RTL chapter ten, “The Trouble with Goblins” free release!

Hey. Before I get to the main point of this post, some updates. Sorry for the long gap between posts, but assorted crap happened and I was trying to fix two other animations. One was decent but not great, so I added it to my mid level patron’s content but have no plans to release it publicly. The other one, I thought I could maybe at least get one part working, but over the last two days it just simply fails to render; now causing hard graphics kernel crashes, which is very odd and quite disturbing. So that is shelved until further notice, leaving me with not much to show for the last two weeks except the new scene set for the game… but sometimes that is just the way it goes. As mentioned, the “toys” scene set is in the current game beta that my mid level patrons have, making five scene sets in the current total; and I hope to add another four event sets or so later this month. This week I plan to do the new DA stuff, then likely get the mini-set out of the way once the Patreon poll for that is done, and then after all that work on the game again. I do not know if I will post more public previews of it, as I have already posted four as it is… but we will see. So check back here/my DA page for some updates later this week/early next week. Please vote in the polls in the mean time, though they are looking good already.

In the mean time though, below are the original four previews for RTL 10, and the download link. Before that though, I have to do a NEW Patreon bit. Since I now have the “charge up front” thing enabled, you can now jump into my Patreon at ANY time, and it will charge you then for the current month. After that, just send me a PM on Patreon and I will send you the appropriate rewards message within 24 hours. This means that you no longer have to wait weeks to get rewards and that you all potentially have more than the one month I thought to join my Patreon and get all these older mini-sets before they get wiped in February of next year. To summarize that again, the January message will be the last one containing all the old mini-sets, (and a couple full size story sets) and starting with the following month’s rewards, the list will reset and only a few newer ones will be included. So potentially you could opt in at any time in the next month and a half or so and still get all that, as well as access to the game beta and a bunch of other stuff; if any of that interests you, or if you just want to help support me, please check my Patreon page!

Also, I will also almost assuredly redo my Patreon page early next year in some fashion; I do not know if this will mean editing the reward tiers, or just the main page a bit, but I really feel that a some kind of overhaul is needed. I have updated/edited my Patreon page all this time to try and keep it current, but I think I will cut down on the wall of text on the main page and redo much of it try to streamline it a bit at the bare minimum. Just FYI though, after RTL is fully posted free, I am pushing back new free releases to a year at the very least. I think giving out almost 20 full (mostly) story sets for free is enough of a preview; so I am going to try and keep it a bit more inclusive to Patreon for a while and see how that goes. Before that though, here is the download link for RTL 10, the password is still redleatherart.!79EGRSDK!HMwQMY8uADl6MfnAbjLtu-YVuR6OmSqbGodj1sZUlC0


November poll results and end of year polls up!

Hi again, I came by to post the new polls and discuss the old ones. The new polls are on the right, one asks if you think I should finish the game before starting on the next story arc; the other is another old poll brought back, asking what you breast size preference is. Just an FYI here, I am planning to finish the game before starting the next story arc, but I just wondered what you all would prefer. I will leave these up for a month, so please vote in those.

As for the previous polls, the results were interesting for several reasons. The first poll asked what you thought was the most important aspect of an adult game. The general writing/story was tied with the adult scene visuals for first place, followed by the writing of the adult scenes, the number of adult scenes, and the characters involved in the adult scenes, each separated by just one vote. Below those, the quality of the general gameplay and the types of adult scenes were one vote above the genre of game, which got two votes. Nobody voted for sound; which is semi- good because I can’t do that so well at this time anyway. I had figured that adult scene visuals would win, but I was somewhat surprised that general writing/story also tied for first; it is nice to see that the story overall matters to people in games like this. The other options are basically where I thought they would be and I will take that into consideration. As mentioned before, I have several other ideas for VNs/games besides what I have already, and depending on how people like the current game, I may/may not work on more games sooner after this one is done.

The second old poll asked what the most important aspects of a female character were. Body shape and sexual preference/ability tied for first, which is no real surprise. After that was race/skin tone, face/makeup, and personality, each separated by one vote. Below that was hairstyle/color and backstory, and then clothing in last. This was mostly as expected, but it is nice to see personality doing well and backstory getting some appreciation also. I have been working on assorted things, but I won’t start rendering until tonight, so sometime early next week there may be something new posted here for you all. Other than that, I plan to make some new DA images and work on the game, RTL 10 is scheduled for a free release, there is also the patreon poll and the related mini-set for this month; there may be a few other things if all goes perfectly, but that is still very much in the air.
