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!
