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
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!
Hey. I was hoping to get the new DA images done by today but for assorted reasons that doesn’t look likely, so instead here is the free release of RTL chapter 11. I consider this chapter to be the climax of the arc; and as I think I said previously, the final chapter is more of an epilogue; a remnant of the story plan from back when I made story sets double issues. It was left in to wrap things up, give some closure for the non-permanent characters, and lead into the next arc. As mentioned before, this is the second to last free release for a fairly long while; assuming that there even will be any more after RTL ends. I need to finish the game before starting the city story arc, which will take a few months still and once those start to get done, free releases will be a year later at the minimum as things stand; I am still debating even doing free releases at all past this. I currently have over twenty full image/story sets available for free; and I think that is more than enough of a preview. If I had any real interest and/or support for all this, I would just give things out for free as I made them; unfortunately, for whatever reason neither of those has happened. So I have little choice but to change things around and see if that improves anything.
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
So check back later this week for the new DA content, and with luck an update on the state of the game. Below are the original RTL 11 previews re-posted for convenience. Anyway, here is the download link for RTL 11, the password is still redleatherart.
Hey again, sorry for the semi-late post here but something came up yesterday and I got back too late to get all this together. Regardless, I finally finished re-rendering all of the scene images in the game so far and here are the four updated visual previews for the game so far; I did replace the one original scene option preview with the later lesbian scene preview, since there was no visual there to update. I think the new model looks far better and has done a lot to improve things. I also look forward to seeing what this will do for my renders in the long term, as I do plan to use this for most all normal-ish cocks in renders from this point on. Tests have been very positive so far and I forsee no real issues, though I do need to redo all current cocks I have saved in the new model; and I greatly look forward to future expansions to this model. I also did get one new scene in the game in addition to all the re-renders, and I hope to maybe add one more before rewards go out in a few days; though that may or may not happen. This means the main content scenes are basically halfway done, although I am considering adding assorted extra visuals, and that does not include the endings and other special images that need doing.
As for this month, there are two shiny polls up that could use more votes, and the free release of the realistic finale of RTL (RTL 11) is scheduled for a free release later this month! (The actual end chapter is more of an epilogue.) I will make some new DA images this month as well, as well as a Patreon mini-set around whatever topic my patrons vote for this time from the assortment of options offered when I post it in a couple days. I will use whatever time is left to work on the game; and though last month saw little new progress, I think it was all for the best in terms of game quality and the quality of my renders in general. I do not know when I will get around to trying that short story, as I was planning to do it last month before I got into the new model/re-renders mess; but I hope to try it soon, depending on the poll it may be even sooner or later.
Hi again, sorry for the rather late post but all sorts of things happened this past week and the original planned animation simply is not behaving right now. I spent a week and a half on it between fixing issues and trying to render it over and over, but the tentacle animation just keeps having issues somewhere. (Making decent looking animations is really hard; what I see in Poser is not what shows up in Octane.) So as I mentioned in the update to the last post, I had to go to plan B just to make sure that I had something; so here that is, a little gif of Zayla masturbating. Obviously this isn’t quite what I planned, and I am still working on the other one, despite my better judgement; so I really hope to have the original animation working sometime in the next week or so… or possibly a little something else, it is hard to say right now. (I would still like to fix a few tiny things in this animation, but I have already re-rendered it three times and this post is late enough already.)
Either way, I have to do the mini-set for the month in the next week or so and hopefully add a scene to the game beta, and if things finally work out, I can get this other animation working to some extent. I have been trying to avoid redoing the main chunk of it, but that may just be necessary, I will see over the weekend. I will post the mini-set preview near the end of the month at the minimum, possibly something else a bit after that. The polls are doing better, but more votes is always good so please keep voting in the polls; it really helps me to know what people like/prefer. As usual, my mid level patrons will get the full 1920×1080 size (I have to crop it a fair bit to make the gifs, so some scenery gets cut) mp4 of this animation, as well as all sorts of other things; so check it out if you are interested! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
Hi again. I am back and I have decided to post some more info/public previews of the game beta I sent out to my mid level patrons a few days ago! Below are FOUR previews, including a screen cut of the previous one from in game. As mentioned before, the game is called “Salune’s slave training” and the goal is to get Salune’s assorted stats as high as possible within a month (maybe more) by picking assorted training activities and even making choices inside those activities; as shown a bit below! Currently, only four activities are implemented; and they may still be expanded or redone slightly, but apparently my patrons really like this so far. I am going to work on it as I can and I hope to get it done mid-spring or so next year, but I will update the beta given to my mid level patrons as I go along. (I hope to have at least one new event put in for next month, but I want to do animations for the general content this month and those are messy.) If you want to check this out and/or help support my work/making this, check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
The first screen is from the lowest level of bondage training, as mentioned before; however, things do get far more interesting as her skills increase. The second screen is just a cut of the menu that shows if you select “Oral training”, it gives you a choice of how you want to do that; as some events in the game will have things like this. The third image shows one variation of the oral training, and a choice within that choice, that shows alternate text and affects the stats gained/lost. (Obviously the stat increases/decreases with each event are just token right now; I have to balance that more when the game is almost complete.) Currently each scene level/variation has only one image associated; but there are/will be text variations and other choices to keep it interesting. Some events will have more options than others, but that is just the nature of these things; much of the text for the events currently in the game will likely be expanded later to match future events as well. (I kept it semi-basic for many events to try and not go overboard again; although that happened anyway.) I may even add more events/images after the base game is done; that is just one of many possibilities If people like this. My patrons also have the current planned event type list, though that is not final. The last preview image is just a cut from the second level scene from the “masturbation” training option; which was one of the options voted for by my patrons last month to be put in first. (It’s worth noting that I put in all three options that were voted for.) Also worth mentioning is that both this and the small VN I made before have a cg gallery, so you can see all the images you have already viewed without anything on top of them; and this is in the game already. I hope you all like these previews from the first beta of this game, and perhaps some of you will want to try it; which would be great. Either way, I will have a preview of something else new around the end of this week. The polls on the right also could really use more votes.
EDIT – 11/21: So to no one’s great surprise, I am a bit behind again due to constant interruptions and issues with long chains of renders for this one animation. I will give it another go tonight, but I may just have to do plan B again, we will see.
Hey. As hinted at last week, here is the free release of RTL chapter eight, which features Helenya having some fun with a summoned dire wolf. The set is 42 images, each with clean and story versions. It’s an interesting and fun set, different from many of the others in the RTL series due to the beast/”monster” content. Quick side note, there is a poll on my deviantart page as well as here; so vote in those if you haven’t already! I am currently working on the new DA images for this month, and hope to have that up toward the end of the week; after which I will work on the animation for this month. I will likely post again either late this week or early next week with an update so check back then!
So the download link is below, for those interested; and the previews are re-posted below for convenience. (The password is still redleatherart) Remember to check out my Patreon page and consider supporting me if you like my work and you want to help me make more/better content and/or want access to it early (among other things)! Everything put forward helps. There are also likely to be a fair few patreon-only polls and such in the coming months; so this is a good time to get in if you want to have input on/previews for what I work on after next month. https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
Hey! As the title suggests, RTL 11 is finally done(ish). I say ish because today has been an absolute mess for me; what I thought would be a quick and easy fix of one thing this morning turned into an eight hour mess I barely got out of. I had noticed an issue in one image earlier that I wanted to fix, but apparently this was just a bigger, more noticeable example of a consistent problem that affected over half the set in some way. I only noticed these small examples of this today, and despite all my best efforts, for most of eight hours I just could not fix it. I was on the verge of just giving up and posting a “previews delayed” message and trying again tomorrow, when somehow my last idea to try fixed everything. Unfortunately, this means I need to re-render most of the set, but I can do that in the next day or so and it won’t be too bad. I am very happy to finally fix this stupid problem that I have been having; so much so that I almost didn’t mind delaying posting this a day just because I could now fix these issues that were bothering me. (I really hate posting things when I know there is something wrong with them.) The last few hours or so were spent re-rendering the preview images, just so I could post this today if at all possible. [EDIT: Apparently I forgot to put the total images on here, so just FYI this set is 46 images; each with a clean and story version.]
Regardless, the previews are below. I really like this set and things get really kinky and fun around the midway point for obvious reasons. I may or may not have messed something small up somewhere, as I was at the end of my rope hours ago and I have no idea how I am still going. As previously mentioned, I will get back on this tomorrow and re-render/fix the other issues. I also am considering adding a bunch of new tags as there are many things included both here and elsewhere that I feel should possibly be noted. Quick side note, I will go over the poll either tomorrow or the day after and post at least one new poll. Anyway, here is the obligatory link to my Patreon page, where the full set will get sent out to appropriate patrons in a week or so when I sent out my reward messages. Anything and everything put forward really helps in many ways!
Hi again, Here is the public preview of RTL chapter 11; along with some tags for an idea of some of what will be included in this set. (But not all.) I am still fixing some minor things and adjusting the lighting before doing most of the final renders; so I still hope to have this done around the end of the week. There is still time to vote in the poll as well, so get on that if you haven’t already for some reason. The top voted item will get an additional/extended scene in the final chapter of RTL when I make it in September. (Other high voted things might get worked in to some degree as well, as mentioned previously.)
EDIT 7/30: I was going to post the final previews today, but there is at least one thing I need to re-render and two other small things I need to fix in addition to finishing the general postwork. This wouldn’t be an issue except I had a bunch of real life things that came up earlier that required me to be out getting parts and then fixing stuff, and only recently finished that all up. Unfortunately, I do not think that I have enough time today to get everything done; it may still happen, but it is unlikely.
Hi. So as the title mentions, I finished the small VN I was working on last night, and sent it out to my Patrons. (I know it is later than planned, but that is explained in a bit.) This was supposed to be a 5-8 image test VN made mostly to test out the entire process before I make anything larger. Somehow last week I ended up expanding the VN until it became it’s current 23 images; so it isn’t that small anymore. It is essentially five mini-sets strung together in game form with a few choices thrown in. The basic story is that you control Elare the elf on her way back to her village, and assorted things can happen along the way.
It has a little something for everyone, and does feature a good end and a bad end currently. (The good ending is pretty much nothing though; I figured nobody would really bother with it and I had to stop myself from expanding this thing any further.) There are a ton of tags on this post showing some stuff that is in the game, along with a couple preview images below. The VN also has a cg gallery (for stuff you’ve seen) and some music thrown in. I will revise it later this month to fix a few small problems that remain, and possibly to expand the dialogue in spots; but that is not certain.
