Announcements.

Last chance to get old mini-sets for a while.

Hey. I came by with an unfortunate announcement – I received an email notification a couple days ago that oronjo is apparently shutting down at the end of this month; so as the title of this post reads, this is probably your last chance to get many of those old mini-sets… as I have no backup method of selling them right now. (I can’t really use gumroad, as you are not allowed/supposed to sell hardcore content on there… and most actual distribution sites get more out of it than I do – so there isn’t much point to that either.) I am not entirely sure how to address this… as I am not aware of any similar alternatives, but I will look around; and I really do not want to host a little webshop thing here on this page – as that would require a lot of setup and for me to get an SSL certificate… which costs almost as much as I pay for the hosting.

So… if anyone was considering getting any of those old mini-sets of mine, this is your advance notice that they will likely be unavailable after this month for at least some time. Several have been fairly popular – and there are even a few bundles at the bottom of my oronjo page; so before its too late, check that out if any of the old mini-sets interest you! https://www.oronjo.com/store/Sc7RT7695rpZhsXC2 (The very recently retired ones from this month are not on there as I had not had time to post them yet – and there is no reason for me to put them on there now… so what is on there is all there is.)

New DA stuff posted, commission sale!

Hey again. I have just posted the new DA images – two of which are brand new and quite fun; one of which I am particularly proud of how it turned out. (New Toy.) Sorry this took a few days longer than I estimated – but I have had a moderate catastrophe to try and deal with… which is not looking good at all – and still has yet to be concluded, so my drive and creativity has been drained in no small part due to that.

Quick side note, I am also changing how my $15 patreon tier gets mini-sets. Previously, I had set “reset” months – which basically encouraged people to wait until the last minute to sign up in order get the most out of it… which is just not fair for those who constantly support me; and a bit of a bad idea as well to be honest. So… as of March 1, 2019 – my $15 patreon tier will include the new mini-set from that month, and the three most recent ones… no more. So there will be no more resets; one new mini-set will be put in and one will be taken out each month now, to keep things fresh and fair. I will put the newly retired mini-sets on my oronjo page as soon as I can – but I have a ton of stuff to do right now.

Also, as the title of this post says – I am going to try having a moderate commission sale! Starting today and going on throughout the month of March, so long as slots are available (5 main slots, 5 waitlist) – I will be offering 15% off all commissions above the base price; and that does combine with existing Patreon and repeat customer discounts that I also offer… so this is quite the opportunity for some people. (I also have several Patreon commission tiers that will take the sale into account; and I did recently add a single-slot high end tier on there for either one commission of whatever you want so long as I can do it (cost irrelevant), or two customs that follow normal rules.) So if anyone out there has been considering getting a commission from me, now may be your best chance so far… and even if you weren’t considering it – maybe now you might! Check my commissions page up top for details, and feel free to ask whether or not I can or will do something. πŸ™‚

Other than that, I will see what happens in these next few weeks… I may have just had a rather serious and annoying setback once again – but I will see if that can still be avoided. If that does not take a turn for the worst, I can focus on restarting work on the new game once I get the remaining voice acting bits set. Either way, I will be back with new polls in a couple days.

World Info/Lore page finally done; also another game preview.

Hi again everyone. I am back with the last post of this year; as you can tell from the title and probably see for yourselves, I have finally finished and posted the “World Info/Lore” page that is now available up top!

This page has a bunch of background information about assorted places and groups that are in my assorted works… that currently totals to around 7400 words, counting all sections. I know there are a at least few people out there that will be interested in this… and hopefully there aren’t too many grammatical errors and such in it; I am far too tired to read it all over again. (I will check it over again in a week or two.) I had to cut a few sections off a little early as it was getting close to the end of the year; but this should be fine for now – as many of the other places mentioned will not really be actively used for quite a while. (I really wanted to finally get this done this year, and I finally had the chance.) I may also add to and/or expand this a bit later… but we will see what happens and/or when.

Anyways, the new public preview for the game I will resume working on next month is below; this was available to my Patrons a month or two ago – as is one or two other previews that you all have not seen yet. (One is animated.) If anyone actually wants to play my previous games and see the other chapters of LITC, or possibly the current mini-sets and more… (old mini-sets available through oronjo via the link up top) consider supporting me on my Patreon page! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Happy New Year and all that; I will be back with new polls and the old poll results in a few days.

New DA stuff posted, other voice audition also posted!

Hey again. Just a quick update – as the title suggests, I have just posted some new content into my DA gallery; so definitely check that out. (Two images are brand new!) I also posted that other audition I mentioned in hopes of finding some voice actresses yesterday, and it is here: https://www.castingcall.club/projects/assorted-adult-content. It is effectively the same as the other audition that I posted last week, just allegedly this site gets more traffic – and so hopefully I will get more interest. (I already have more auditions here than on the old one – after only one day as compared to a week and a half…)

If you are visiting my site from one of the two auditions – Hi there! πŸ˜€ Please check out my assorted characters on the “Characters” page up top – as well as the recent previews of my work. There are also the previews and demo from my last game up in the “Game preview gallery” page – as well as the many story sets I have freely available that are all in the “Freely released image sets” tab up there. πŸ™‚ (If you are looking for something specific, you can find specific types/character’s content by using the ‘tags’ on each post.)

So anyway, please vote in the polls on the right if you haven’t yet – and I want to wish all of you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and all that; and I should be back with some sort of status update before the end of the year. (I am also still trying to finally get this Lore page totally situated before the new year, but I have had so much to do up through tonight – we will see what happens next week.)

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! πŸ™‚

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! πŸ˜€ 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.)

http://voiceacting.boards.net/thread/2951/voice-actresses-assorted-adult-content

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.

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.

 

Older mini-sets are now for sale!

Hey again. So as the title suggests, I have finally found a place to sell my old mini-sets, and in theory everything is set up and working… I hope. I have listed all my old mini-sets on oronjo and priced them according to number of images and quality (aka age); as well as whether or not it has a story element to it. Unlike most online content stores, in theory I get the majority of the revenue from this; so the prices are low partly because of that and partly because I wanted to be reasonable. (Many other artists sell old Patreon stuff at whatever full price was back at the time.) There are also a few bundles of some of the really old mini-sets, so you could get a bit of a discount if you buy those bundles instead of buying the mini-sets individually; and if the bundles prove popular, I may make bundles of the other mini-sets as well. (The oldest mini-sets areΒ only available in a bundle; and that bundle includes a very old 24 image story set with Karen and a beastman.) The actual product listings themselves are rather basic… but I just assume that anyone interested enough to actually buy any of them already read the post on the site about it and/or can guess what it contains.

I hope to be back in a day or two with the mini-set preview; but as mentioned previously, I am a bit behind for assorted reasons – but I am doing what I can.

If you want to help support me and my work, and/or are just interested in obtaining some of my older mini-sets, check out my oronjo shop! (Hopefully everything works correctly.) The link to the store is up top in the menu bar, and also here:

Poll results, new polls, Patreon mini-set reset.

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!

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

Patreon page updated, open for commissions!

Hey again, I just came by to give you all a quick update and make two semi-major announcements. Instead of working on the main content for the month so soon, i decided to take care of all the clerical stuff that needed doing. (Still working on updating one other thing, so it’s not mentioned here.) As the title suggests, my Patreon page has been updated slightly; and I have cut out a lot of the body text that used to be there in addition to updating the reward tiers. Most things are the same, but I had to make a few minor edits due to this new game being done soon(ish) and some other content that I am planning to try out in the near future. The other announcement is of course that I am giving commissions a test run, to see how that goes. Yes, technically commissions were available on my Patreon as a higher tier reward, but now there are other options as well as the Patreon tiers. (Though those are still the best deal overall.)

Check the commissions page up top if you are interested, there are other offers on my Patreon page and my DA page as well. I have no idea how long I will do this and/or if it will even work out; but I wanted to give it a shot. In other news, the poll is going rather well; but more votes is always a good thing. Some stranger options in the poll are doing surprisingly well; but there is still time for everything to change, so vote now if you haven’t yet! Otherwise, check back later this week for some other update; likely the mini-set preview and/or another small content update.
