Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

Thuesday update!

In the last poll, I asked which game seems to have the best looking emoticons from what you've seen so far, with 1286 votes gathered this time around!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin
Won by 87%, being 1127 of the votes.
Legend of Queen Opala
Came second, 6% of the 83 votes.
Legend of Queen Opala II

Lost by 5%, being 76 of the votes.

This pretty much proof there was really no contest. xD
Sadly, no artwork to share with you this week...and no boobs, shame on me!

Then what is new with the game development, you might ask? Well, the Art Gallery has been tweeked and finished, all episode 1 locations have now been added to the game and Illumi is fully implemented! So, now it comes down to adding all the optional art, trading cards and finishing the rest of the story for episode 1 before my focus will shift on adding side-quests and other bonus stuff on the side, before launch. :3

I'm also thinking if I should hold back trophies for a later episode, as they are quite tricky.
The only way to add or edit new trophies into to the game, is to force everyone to delete their current trophy list, which wouldn't be much fun, but at the same time, it's impossible for me to predict at this day exactly what the rest of the game will contain two years from now, and what related trophies it should have.

But on a positive note, I may be changing up the blacksmith system from LoQOII for this one.
Make it far deeper and more polished with added options, which would let you not only craft gear, but also permanently improving weapons/armor and even brew potions etc.
In short, and in theory, the starting weapon could end up becoming more powerful than the last unlockable weapon if you abuse the system to your advantage. x3
And of course...it would fix all the annoying bugs from the old blacksmith system, like how dismantling is actually costing money when it's supposed to give you some. >>;

And to round things up...
Expect the next beta to be available this weekend, or during the next week at latest!

That's all for this week!

  1. I think holding off on achievements is a good call. There was a few bugs in LOQO II from playing with a save file from all the way back to day 1.

    Also have you considered sprite art and animations for the erotic scenes. LOQO II had that one very nice sprite sex moment. I would really help set the tone of the overworld.

    1. It's possible, but the game hasn't offered any location/situation that would make use of that yet. :)

    2. Well, just using LOQO II as an example, a little sprite action would have spiced up Gnolls bar and the impregnantor caves.

      Btw was there any official verdict on LOQOOs trading cards, will it be a mix of all girls or just Farah?

    3. I second that. We wont really be missing the achievements in ep1 and we certainly dont want things to get complicated cause of forced achievement changes.
      And upgrading system could be very nice. As long as materials wont require that much grinding as it used to be with LOQO2 smithing.

    4. After all, the game will still have the rather complex and deep title system to keep players interested...I mean, if the porn doesn't. >:D

      Oh, and yeah, Trading Cards will now focus on all the women!

  2. keep up the good work and i am looking forward to the next beta version :)

    1. Yeah, pretty sure this poll is rigged...oh well, it's not like it has any impact on anything besides it being there for fun. :3

      And OMG...! Why do I keep doing it!? I thought it tagged along between updates ever since I first corrected it, I suuuuck! XD

  5. An alchemy system?! Awesome! Your ambitions will make this game epic.

    2. Gabriel are you really thinking about adding an alchemy system this late in? What kind of content comes to the table with this: Specialized monsters with rare alchemy drops, game breaking potions, or will we be able to make explosions in a bottle?
      simply a curious a fan.

      Delete
    3. Forging and alchemy is basically the same thing...just using different ingrediences and results. ^^

      Delete
    4. Gabe I don't know if it's been thought of yet, but since you can camp on the world map, will some types of item synthesis be available at camps? Could even do something like cooking

      Delete
    5. I have plans to make use of the campfire in some way...just not entirely sure yet what, or if it should be available in episode 1. ^^

  6. Holding off on achievements in act 3 would give players an incentive to play again and for those who would play again something else to aim for.

    1. sigh that didn't come out like it was in my head :(

      Holding off on achievements until act 3 would give players an incentive to play again, lets face it you might as well finish the game at that point and if you are a completionist or just want to see what the achievements are then play again

    2. Oh, I get what you're saying. :3

    3. Really depends on the people too, I for one enjoy the games so much I delete my saves and start all over again

  7. How many have donated post-offbeatr? Just wondering!

  8. In regards to the upgrading system you mentioned, one of the cooler things Fable III did was allow you to use weapons that would upgrade themselves through the game and morph depending on what kind of character you were and actions you took. Spending a lot of gold would result in a more golden weapon, being evil would give red runes on the side etc.

    Like a lot of things in Fable it wasn't entirely thought out and polished, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway. It would be cool to have a 'Defiler's Blade' by the end of the game for corrupt PCs, instead of just a bronze sword with +999 ATK or whatever.

    It's great to see how quickly that game is coming along btw, can't wait for the next beta release.

    1. I actually didn't know that about Fable III, if spending a lot of gold really made it more golden...I never noticed that. xD

    2. Those were the only two I remember off-hand, but according to the Fable Wiki there was a bunch, including ones for having sex, having children, and participating in orgies. Which kind of makes me want to go back and play that game.

  9. So how can I go about supporting you? When I get my next pay check I would love to donate or help you out in some way.

    1. you can donate to gabriellogan@hotmail.com via as i did, i donated 20$ (in my regional equivalent) and got access to the beta.

      Delete
    2. Is there an option that says donate or something? How exactly does it work?

      Delete
    3. Yeah, contacting me in person and ask first is preferred, and I'll describe how to do it. ^^

  10. Do you plan on not working on the voice acting until the very end? Last time, it seemed the VAs took a really long time to get back to you.

    1. Planning ahead is a good idea, would be a shame if we had unnececary delays.

      Delete
    2. That was just one VA, and she doesn't have a role in episode 1.
      Multi-tasking in a huge project like this, for one person, would just end up a disaster, so I always work on specific and focused tasks.

  11. Did someone hack the poll again? Seems like Osira jumped ahead all of a sudden.

    1. Yup, and I think two times too during this poll so far!

  12. Will there be an update on the weekend if the beta comes out then?

    1. Most people will notice when it becomes available since I send out the betas to them. x3

  13. I dont know if you already answered this (Probably a thousand times :P) the poor ones (those who hasnt donated) will get a beta before the release in 2017? (was 2017?) and I cant pay because I dont have a credit card, is there anyway that i can donate via rapipago / pagofácil (Argentina ways to pay bills which includes stuff like this) And if you didnt notice already (which i'm pretty sure you did) i'm Argentine so... <3

    Btw, GREEEEEAT game <3

    1. Ah, almost forgot, will be there any loli? Always wanted to see a loli with this awesome artstyle and the monsters + huge dicks with expansion will be perfect for a lot of my fetishes (I think that's too much information :P)

      Delete
    2. At this point, if you don't donate to Gabe directly, you are not getting access to the Beta, only the full releases. Her contact info is posted literally everywhere.

      Also, there's at least one loli-ish character, but she hasn't been introduced yet. I doubt there is going to be too much loli stuff outside of her thougyh. just a gut feeling there.

      Delete
    3. Thanks for the fast answer, and donating to Gabe directly is possible from Argentina? my logic tells me not. T_T

      Delete
    4. Thanks but i knew that... i meant if i can pay her from here.... but thanks..

      Delete
    5. Dont worry, even if i knew that someone could not and you answered me to help me, that's why i said you thanks, and you shoudlnt apologize for trying to help.

    7. Stupid phone autocorrect.
      Have should be Gabe, obviously.

    8. Sorry, but I don't think I can accept payments through that since I've never heard of it and doubt it'll work in my country. x3

    9. Well you answered me so it's an another Archivement Unlocked, ty.

      But ANSWER MY ABOUT THE LOLIS GOSHDDAMNIT. And as i said b4, awesome game gabe. <3

      Delete
    10. There won't be anything sexual with lolis or shotas involved because it would be enough reason for upcoming crowdfundings to be rejected by the sites.

      Though if you go back and check which female characters will be in the game, you'll see how Ra'Tiki is as close as you can get without being illegal.

      Delete
    11. It's not illegal if you like it <3

      Joke of course.

      Thanks gabe <3

  15. This is a bit of a random question, but is there any chance we'll see the ladies that had bit parts (Castella from LoQo, Bal'rana and her daughter, anyone else with a portrait for the Greenfield Estate)/ were massive cock teases (Nipha, Mistress Tna, anyone else with a Daily Fap entry) get a more expanded role, or at least a quick and dirty mini-scene. I needs my pirate booty!

    1. Thats true. Ever since LOQO1 lots of us were (are) eager to get some pirate action. Romance or just random scene, rape or whatnot.. anything but just flirty dialogue :(.
      The bottom line is that whenever Gabe introduces any sexy character, most of players would like to have chance to have a way with her.

  16. Is LoQO origins nearly finished? I'm a big fan of the series and have been eagerly awaiting this one since I saw you were making it. In fact I am playing LoQO 2 right now. XD

    2. LoQO Origin won't be finished until 2017...but episode 1 will be out in a couple of months. ;P
