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! 🙂

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! 😀 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 just  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.
