Hey, hey. I am here with the first post of 2021 – and some cool new polls; as well as the results from last time! Last month, I had a special poll posted – the clear winner of which was Helenya, with five votes – somewhat surprisingly! (Usually Zayla wins, with Helenya and/or Salune close behind – but this was somewhat of a surprise.) Zayla came in second with three votes, and then Salune, with two – with most of the other characters tied for forth, getting one vote after that. So, I will make that new special render with Helenya sometime soon and post that for everyone – not sure exactly when yet. The other poll from last time asked about your art preferences, and unsurprisingly, most people prefer NSFW and/or explicit – which is also generally my preference as well, so that works out.
As for the new polls, one is the usual feedback poll about my latest short story from a couple month back – “Zayla’s Nightmare”; and the other asks if you think I should make a side render gallery here on the site, with most of my side renders from DA/slushe in it. Again, I consider these polls important, and votes would be greatly appreciated – as both will have considerable effects; so please vote in the polls on the right.
Other than that, I did post mini-set 72 to my gumroad page… that was the recent modern/cosplay mini-set one, for those who don’t know/remember; so if that interests you, it is now available to purchase separately. I am still also working out the Patreon changes I have planned – but that is also slightly complicated for assorted reasons… although I will work something out. I hope things will get/be better this year for my work… but we will see what happens. There are so many things I want to do, but I just don’t have the time/support/interest to actually do it all at the moment. Hopefully I will be able to restart work on the story sets soon though – as those have basically been on hold since I was first planning to make that sequel to SST… which also later got effectively put on hold for different, yet somewhat similar reasons. However, since I have nothing but my own opinion to go on, I think I will go ahead and try and do more story sets whenever I can. Primarily because working on games is far more draining/stressful, and I can’t even remember what i was doing with ZST now because it has been so long since I did anything of consequence for it in terms of coding. That, and I still have one big mess in particular to clean up whenever I seriously get back into game work… and I am not looking forward to that. I get almost no real feedback regarding my work regardless, so I will just do what I prefer right now. I may also try to do a new animation next month – if everything works out.
Anyway – if anyone out there would like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or perhaps even get access to several of these mini-sets and/or lots of other rewards too, like the other finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made. (The micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page… and I am doing what I can on the new game with whatever time I may be able to spare – if any.)
