New commission and status update!

Hey again. I am back with some updates regarding work I have been doing and one new commission, in case you didn’t read the title. I sent out the updated beta of the game to applicable Patrons of mine a few days ago; and there is only one main scene set left to put in now. The 1.0 release of “Salune’s slave training” is very close; I can’t see it taking more than two months at the outside, and I hope to have it basically complete when next month’s main rewards message goes out. (When it is at 1.0 I will repost some of the previews and some info/other things about it for convenience sake; but I would think regular viewers here know what to expect by now.)

I still have a lot of text expansions to work in and balancing to do, but some of that may need more testing than I can do myself. (I am in the process of putting in the endings now.) In other news, there are also some fixes and new images as well as one new addition to the characters page, [with a few things left out for story reasons] which I have been meaning to fix for months but forgetting. (One additional new character to come for that as well, but I will wait until I actually put out chapter one of the next story arc to put her bio here.) Regardless, I will be back next week with the preview for this month’s new Patreon mini-set, perhaps more depending on assorted time factors.

Anyway, here is that new anonymous commission, featuring Tabitha and some bondage/tentacle action!

New DA images posted yesterday, status update.

Hey again. I am back with a small status update and the new DA stuff that I posted last night. (I was too tired to post here and Patreon last night so I waited until now.) Sorry about the delays on the DA stuff, but I had to take my car in for repairs earlier this week and lost a lot of spare time related to that.

Regardless, I am working on the new game scene sets, but I am having some technical issues involving scene texture limits with one of the remaining two; so I may have to push that back to next month. I am not totally sure of this yet, but it seems highly likely. Quick note here, I know it seems like I haven’t been doing as much for this project due to working so much on this game, but this is actually a story set worth of work each month; so it is realistically more work for me than before, and I really hope people enjoy it. It is almost done though, so the end is in sight and all that. (Another month or two I think, hard to say.)

Regarding that other thing I mentioned a post or two ago, I still haven’t heard back from the person involved with that yet; so I guess that needs more time. There are a few new commissions for me though on my DA/tumblr, so check those out if you haven’t already. I will be back in a couple days with new polls, so vote now if you haven’t yet!

Some poll results, and some new polls too.

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.

Status update: 5/20

Hey. So as mentioned last time, here is a quick status update regarding some assorted things. First of all, I am currently working on the full size, ten-ish image story set for my Patrons this month, which will feature Zayla. (I won’t give away the full scenario idea yet; my patrons already know though.) I gave several different options in the patreon poll this time, including modern and sci-fi scenarios; but the one with Zayla won by a fair bit as she usually does. So I hope to have at least one preview of that, maybe two in a few days or so; but it looks like it is going to be very fun. A couple new commissions for me got posted recently, and I added them to the “commissions and stuff for me” gallery on my DA page (one on my tumblr), so check that out if that interests you. As for game content this month, I won’t get into that until I finish this image set; but there should be at least one, preferably two new scene sets… and there are only four main training ones left to put in. (I don’t count the endings/other scenes as scene sets… but there is much of that left to do as well.)

In other news, it looks like I will have a lot more time for all this stuff somewhat soon; though I am not sure how long it will last… that really depends on all sorts of things. I hope to make a fair bit of progress on the game during this time, and maybe get it to 1.0 in two/three months. When that happens, I will likely repost some of the older previews and/or make a few new ones for some more general gameplay insight. I will also make a post to all my patrons sometime before the end of the month with assorted ideas regarding other content ideas/events that may happen after this game is done… partly to just let people know what I am thinking and partly to see there is interest for these things. The polls on the right are doing fairly well, but there is still time for results to shift, so vote now if you haven’t yet!

Game beta 0.6 reached, status update.

Hey again. Sorry this is later than I’d hoped but yesterday was really rough and I slept in today. Long story short, the game is at what I am calling beta 0.6; although about 70% of the actual image content planned for the base game is in the game now. (75% of the training scene sets are implemented; though I do plan to expand the written bits for some of the early ones.) There is still of course other stuff to work out like the stat balancing and the endings; but I did get the “anal training” scene set in the build I sent out last night to my patrons. That was pretty fun and has a bit of fisting at the end because why not. (People wanted that according to a poll a while back.) The game also has a title screen now; though that may still get updated a bit. (The words, not the image I don’t think; I like this one.)

So that went better than I thought it would given that mess last month, and I will see what this month holds for the game beta in a week or so; for now my patrons are voting on which mini-set idea will become a full size image set, and it looks to have been decided already. (Most votes were for one option; more on that later next week I hope.) I really am not sure what else will happen this month, as I am waiting for three/four people to get back to me about different things… and have been for weeks in most cases. So the game beta is doing pretty well and there will be a ten(ish) image story set for mid level patrons starting next month with a preview image here; maybe two, one clean and one story… not sure yet.  I have all kinds of ideas and possibilities on the table in terms of other content and stuff I have been thinking about… especially given something coming up rather soon; I am planning to mention some of this to patrons before mentioning it here, so I don’t know when most of you will get more details. Please continue to vote in the polls here and leave comments with any questions/concerns; I plan to post again next week with an update at the minimum, hopefully with a preview of the not so mini-set for the month.

Prior poll results, new polls, status update

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.

Status update: 4/13

Hey. Just a quick update here for assorted reasons. I sent out the Patreon rewards last night, which included one new scene set for the game as well as a few new images for some existing scene sets. It is a little less than I had hoped for, but I still think I should be able to finish the main game around early June as planned. In other, semi-related news; this week has been a complete mess for me and I do not know if I will be able to finish the remaining DA images before next week or not. I have had a ton of crap happen these past few days and a lot of unnecessary stress which makes it hard to work on all this, if I can even find the time. I will do the best that I can; but I think it may get pushed to next week with the mini-set for this month. In other news, the final chapter of RTL is scheduled for a free release here sometime later this month; so check back for that later later on. While you wait for all that, please vote in the polls and do check out my other pages/previous sets if you haven’t already! (There is a freely released sets tab at the top of this page.)

Status update: 3/31

Hi. Here is that update in regard to the state of the game and a few of my other plans as far as upcoming things go. I am going to try and get two new scene sets in the game beta before it gets sent out in a week and a half or so, but I am not sure I will be able to do that and  finish the few new random events I would like to work in. A few more details and specifics of all this will be posted to my Patrons in a bit, but long story short I hope to have the 1.0 of the game more or less done in early June; (so it will be included in the May Patreon rewards message) and that is a conservative estimate. Now, even once it is “done” it will still be in beta for a few months while I work out the stat balancing and fix any bugs/typos and probably continue to add content; so that isn’t a complete finish yet, but all the core content will be in the game, it just might need some tweaking/expanding. Again, this is not a guarantee, but unless something horrible happens I don’t see this taking longer than that to get the base game situated. After that gets done I will likely take a month to recover and then see about getting back to the next story arc.

Next month I plan to do the new DA images, the Patreon mini-set and then use whatever I have remaining to work on the game. The month after that though, (in May) there will be a special Patreon mini-set poll; it will decide the topic of the mini-set for that month as usual but that mini-set will instead be a ten image set with a tiny story attached! That special Patreon poll will be available to appropriate patrons of mine after rewards go out in early may; so if you want to get in on that and/or support my work or see other mini-sets I have done for my Patrons, check out my Patreon page!

March Patreon mini-set preview!

Hey again. Sorry for the rather late post of this; but assorted factors kept pushing it back. I actually had something else in mind, but for various reasons I benched it for now and made this mini-set instead. I decided to make this a solo set, as I haven’t done one of those in quite a while. It stars Helenya, who has “borrowed” Zayla’s favorite toy and gone outside to play with it (and herself) a bit before anyone catches her. The mini-set is seven images; although one is just a slight edit of the preview below, to make it postable on DA. I think it came out really well and it does feature one of my two main favorite girls, so there is that as well. If you want to support me and maybe even get access to these mini-sets and/or future polls (or lots of other rewards), check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

In other news, I have been working to get assorted commissions done; both for and by me. I hope to post a couple of the ones by me on here/tumblr soonish, but I am waiting since I think I have a few that are related and I would like to post them together. Also, if you haven’t checked my DA page/tumblr recently, maybe you should; as that is where all commissions for me currently end up and they are worth checking out. I can’t say for sure what will get done in the game this month yet; but I have a couple weeks to do whatever I can. I have been working though a few new variations for existing events and a few other things, I will see what gets done. There should be another post here next week with something; either a status update or perhaps something else, it is too early to know yet. In the mean time, enjoy this preview!

Game beta 0.5 reached, one new public preview.

Hey. Sorry for the long gap between posts, but I saw no real reason to post late last week when I wasn’t ready to post a new preview yet; plus I was really busy all weekend and into the last two days as well. Also, quick apology for the weird downtime of this site a couple days ago, I had to email the host and get that fixed, and it seems fine now. Long story somewhat short, two new scene sets are in the game and I am trialing two new mechanics for future expansion. The two new scene sets in the game are play with monsters and pets respectively, and are pretty much what you would expect. I worked in a few new things that I have never tried before, such as a lamia and a slime; (remember that recent big monster poll?) as well as some things people wanted to see more of that I haven’t used that much. I think it all turned out quite well, and this might be my favorite update to the game so far; I sent out the 0.5 beta of Salune’s slave training with the rewards message to my applicable patrons last night.

If you are interested in getting access to what I have so far, remember my Patreon is set to charge up front now; so you can jump in whenever and receive rewards not long after. In other news, I hope to be back later in the week with a preview of this month’s Patreon mini-set and possibly something else; so check back later for all that. In the mean time, please vote in the polls if you haven’t already and enjoy the new preview below; my first real attempt at utilizing a monster girl.

If you like my work and want to help me make more of it, please check out my Patreon page; more support means I can spend more time on my work for this project; and any interest, comments, votes, and/or support all help motivate me. https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
