Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

Weekly Information Dump Day! Or...uhh, WIDD for short?

Anyhoo, the Lewd Box system is all done and implemented in the game, so starting in the next beta you'll get a Lewd Box for every Title you unlock and they can be sold for Krown if you don't feel like opening them and getting cosplay photos...win/win, right? :D
I've also updated the Art Gallery to take the new CG Style into account and took the opportunity to update the look a bit so the CG Gallery is more visually informative now that the names, such as Western/Eastern etc, has been removed.

The third main feature I had time to add was changing how the costume swapping menu function, although this one was spoiled to you a few days ago if you follow my Twitter! I think it both looks better and allows for more than 5 outfits per character to fit on the screen, not to mention it also gives you a larger view/sample of the currently worn outfit in the left-side frame.

And with that, I'll see you guys during the next Tuesday! :3

Another week, another update! :D
(Sorry for it coming in so late in the day!)

And boy, do I have some juicy details I've been dying to share with you guys!
Since I released the latest beta the other week, I've worked on something for the game I've been thinking about for some time now...a loot box system.
Now before you all grab your torches, pitchforks and come hunting me down, stay a while and listen! See, the mechanic itself isn't so bad when you take out the extreme corporate greed and money making scheme, but in fact, focus entirely on just making it a fun experience.

First thing first, there are no microtransactions and you can't buy them with real money.
That being said, these things are called "Lewd Boxes" in the game and rewards you with randomized cosplay photos that has previously only been Patreon exclusive, although the versions you get in-game won't be quite as large in pixel size.
You can't get dublicates and if the lewd box system tries to reward you a cosplay photo from a set you have already fully unlocked, you'll get an Emerald Gem instead. (Which in turn can be used to unlock CG Scenes you've already seen, but in alternative art styles instead of replaying the game)
You get a new Lewd Box per each individual "Title" you earn, which is rewarded for a lot of different things like defeating enemies, looking through houses etc, and you can also sell the Lewd Box for the ingame currency Krown as early players might be more interested to quickly earn a lot of coin instead of unlocking optional content.

Currently I'm not entirely sure how, but I'll try to come up with a solution to have the game count the titles you've already earned (for long time players) and reward you with all the Lewd Boxes you should have, possibly by a one-time use code for the mystical mirror in Colussia. :3

With that, I hope you like the sound of it and I'll see you next Tuesday!

Sorry for the slightly delayed Tuesday update!
However, this week I bring you Kythie's new battlepose to go along with the other ones, and include the "downed" version for her in the game.

Speaking of which, the next beta will be out tomorrow and include the International Version, a fully completed Odidania with new trading cards/illustrations, and of course, the new battleposes with downed variations for both Kythie and Ra'Tiki.

Not really a rich update in terms of sheer text volume, although with a surprisingly large amount I've gotten done since last week.

So with that, the Patreons can enjoy a new version tomorrow and everyone else, I'll see you next week! :D

That cold I catched sure was one persistent son of a strawberry nugget with vanilla flavor...wait, what was I talking about again?

Oh, right! Neena!
No more teasing around, here is the character people have been asking about ever since she went from being a skilled swordwoman and Lord Kross's sister to ending up becoming Eclipse the Horseman's "personal assistant" by the end of LoQOII.
She might not show up in episode III, but the pair will eventually be reintroduced to let returning players settle the score and put an end to that story thread.

In other news, International Edition is now implemented and my focus has turned to finishing off Odidania before next week when I plan to release the latest beta towards the end of the month, as I thought I'd only have time to finish one or the other.
However, for once I'm happy to be wrong as it seems like I might be able to do both! :D

And with that, you know the deal; I'll see you again next Tuesday!

Originally I was going to unveil a familiar face in this update for fans of the previous game who might know about a certain story arch that was left open by the end of LoQO II...
Unfortunately, I caught a cold last Wednesday and been sick ever since with it only starting to clear up now, so I didn't get around to finish coloring her introduction pose yet...

Instead, have some Queen of Harpies boobies with Paellicia's standard expression emoticon! Don't let her distract you during Thanksgiving and make you look at the turkey in the wrong way! No, seriously, don't! D;

And while sick, I still had it in me to do some work so I've been remaking the opening of the game with new graphics, shortened opening legal mumbo-jumbo and totally remade character select/CG Edition layout, which could be previewed over the weekend if you follow me on Twitter.
It'll allow for the "International Version" to finally be played in the next beta and also lays out the ground work for a stream friendly, "Clean Version" that'll censor visually mature content and remove all optional illustrations/trading cards, much like how it was in LoQOII.

Aaaand with that, let me end this Tuesday update by saying the figurine shop have gotten three new items in store, Gabrielle (regular/topless versions) along with a topless alternative of Farah. :)

So, I'll see you guys again next week!

Alright, time for one those two new characters I hinted about the other week! And first up is the next "Ultra" enemy to join the ranks of Roseus and Melanoir, with this one being the Queen of the Harpies, Paellicia!
I believe both her and Melanoir will be available and can be fought in the regions accessable within episode III.

And to remind everyone, my goal is to make LoQO: Origin IV episodes to conclude every story thread and pace them nicely together across the game.

As for actual game development, it's been a slow week and I've mostly been arranging/making assets and prepping the game for the inclusion of all the new trading cards and the International Version, which should be included (or very close to it) by the time we reach Tuesday next week!
I think that's about it for now, but be ready to see a familiar face next time!

See you guys at the next update like clockwork!

Sorry, the character unveils have to wait an extra week to make room for today's news!

If you've been following me on Twitter, you might've seen a little teaser about what might be mentioned today and marks the return of the poll (even if only temporarily).
This week I've been arranging for a couple of photoshoots to promote the LoQO figurines and give them proper reference photos for anyone looking them up, and during that, I made the acquaintance of a very lovely girl who was rather enthusiastic about the idea of letting you guys get a vote on if she should come back and cosplay as either Farah or Osira...
And that'll be your call!

Would she make for a better Osira, with a slightly dominant and wicked touch?
Or would she make for a better Farah with a more embracing, warm present?
Although be mindful...she might just be following the results herself. ;3

But maybe none of that interest you, you want to hear about the freaking game!
I've done a few more trading cards and think that'll be enough for now, so next I'll be focusing on either including the International Edition at long last before the end of November or tweak around enough to make Bal'Rana's Gallery fully functional.
While not all art for International Edition is done yet, I feel it now has enough scenes completed to be included in the next beta and have a decent amount of new illustrations to offer.

And with that, enjoy Farah/Osira below, make your vote count and I'll see you next week!
