Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Title/Reward System

Tuesday update!

In the last poll, it was asked what you look most forward to in LoQO:O, with 1521 votes gathered!

Adult Scenes
Won by 76%, being 1158 of the votes.
The Women
Second, 62% with 954 of the votes.
The Story
Third, 49% with 754 of the votes.
RPG Elements
Third, 36% with 548 of the votes.
World Exploration

Lost by 30%, being 471 of the votes.

What's really interesting about these results isn't what you see...but that 24% of the people who voted, aren't even looking forward to the adult parts of the game the most! ;D

Phew, this has been an insane peroid...I've poured my heart and soul to finalize the title/reward structure of the game, and since I began focusing on this last week, I've spent 25-30 working hours on nothing else but coding it! But I'm almost done with that part, and it's turning out really great!
The "Collection" item you could use since LoQOII to view your statistics has gone through a massive make-up and will be the main window to check on your statistics, titles and unlock rewards.

It's also going to let you view each individual location and be notified if you have cleared it, unlocked art chests, found lost illustrations and if the legendary monster has been defeated.
All titles will also have progression bars, so you know exactly what you need to do, and how much of that you need to do in order to unlock titles.
In turn, earning titles will unlock unique rewards to purchase with Golden Tokens that you can only obtain from the rare monster Golden Beetleblade, but some of the rewards will even increase it's spawn rate and/or alert you upon entering a region if it has spawned at all.

So this whole title progression and reward system should bring out everything that was merely working behind the curtains in previous beta versions, and how it'll work in the finished release. :)

EDIT - After much convincing, I finally decided to make...yup, one of these - Patreon
I'll just stealthily add it here, but will mention it more next week, too busy working on the game for now to make any announcement or detailed description. x3

Best of all, whenever the next beta hits, there is no need to restart yet again for the system to become active! And to finish off this week, here is a screenshot of the new and improved "Collection" item use.

  3. it will be nice to know which places you need to explore in advance.
    Btw just a question about the Golden Beetle, will there be more than you need for the tokens?
    Just since LOQO II had the golden coin shortage for those that had started from day 1.

    1. There will be unlimited Golden Beetleblades, the first ones are clearly hardest to find/defeat without any purchased rewards...but after you get a few, you'll soon roll in Golden Tokens before you know it. x3

    2. Can we have sex scenes with the beetles too?

      Delete
    3. I see that question is...bugging, you. ;P

      Delete
    4. Well like everything in life, one must always ask the important question: Can I have sex with it?

      Also any more bad puns and there will be a spanking.......for me :-P

    5. You're just begging for Eclipse, aren't you? ;P

    7. That's how I roll! I touch people and leave them gaping for more. >)

    8. Can the beetles be encountered anywhere at random or are there certain locations?

  4. I voted for adult scenes, women, and RPG elements. Does this make me less of a pervert?

    1. Concidering I'm the creative mind of all the porn you're going to experience...I'm probably the wrong person to ask. xD

      Delete
    2. Nah, it just makes you a healthy pervert because you can enjoy more than just the porn.

      Delete
    3. Hehe, true, but a pervert nonetheless. x3

      Delete
    4. I guess the question now is.....is this a bad thing?

      Delete
    5. Seeing as I'm pretty sure as fans of this game we're all perverts, it would take quite a bit of self-loathing for anyone to say yes. So, I'm gonna go with absolutely not XD

      Delete
  5. That sounds great. I've been hunting the legendaries in the beta, and have no idea what the last one is. UI work may not be as exciting as porn, but it's nice to see how far things have come since the original LOQO.

    I also wanted to ask if you had any plans to make scene variations available in the art gallery. Like the scenes in the Highland Inn, they only show one version regardless of your choices; letting Kythe have his fun, for example. They also only show the white player skin.

    Other than that, I'm really enjoying the game so far. Also, the Gentleman's club. No idea what's going to go on there, but I'm sure it's going to be great. And in regards to the poll, I really liked the bad ends in LOQOII, and would love to see more.

    1. Then you'll very easily find where the last remaining Legendary is with this area/title tracking system. ^^

      Using the Highland Inn as an example, scenes only unlock as how they are played, if you didn't let Kythe join, that part won't be unlocked in the gallery until the next playthrough, if you do let him join that time.
      CG Scenes in the Art Gallery has also been remade to only show the skin-color you're currently playing as, meaning all scenes will only show black character, if you are playing as one at that time.

  6. So any infos on the first episode's status ? :)
    Would be awesome if it could be playable in early January/late December
    so I can beat it before exams start ;/

    1. January has always been on the time table, I'd say the release will be between late January to early-late Februari. :)

      Delete
    2. Well sounds awesome :)
      Downside is my exams start at about mid-February :S
      And before anyone asks I'm studying IT (my first semester) and who knows... maybe one day I can help Gabe programming and stuff since she provides us with her beauty (talking about the pic you get from the pendant in LOQO2 :P ) and the RPG-greatness which provides us with fap material - the series we know and love :)
      Keep going with your ideas and your LOQO projects (maybe one day branching of to a new series)
      yours sincerely tc619 :)

    3. It's a bit of a pity I don't accept coding help, I'm so determined doing all of that myself...because then I only have myself to blame if something goes South. x3

      Delete
    4. Ok... well can't say I didn't offer my help :S
      Would be kind of awesome if you would start like your own company - Gabework would also be a fitting name :3
      It would also be cool if you made fan meetings or stuff like that :<
      But I for my part respect that you want to keep your identity secret :/

      Delete
  7. Actually the gallery in the latest version has both white and black skin. Keep scrolling :)

    Replies
    1. That is corrected in the next beta, to only show the skin-color you're currently playing as...kinda makes more sense I guess. x3

      Delete
    2. I have to agree with you there. But it was kinda fun messing around with that. Seeing each scene with both white and black skin almost changed the whole scene.

      Delete
    3. Even more reason to replay the game then! x3

    4. Ha, now I feel like a dumbass. Thanks man.

  8. Have you started work on the voice acting yet? Can you post some audition samples at least as teasers?

    1. I have audition samples, but recording for the game hasn't started yet.

  9. Hey Gabe, once you're finished on origins and start working on the next title, can you use the other type of rpg maker inventory layout where it has different tabs for items weapons materials and key items? The inventory gets really cluttered trying to find a certain item when you've collected a lot

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agreed, a system like that would be optimal. :)

      Delete
  10. So in light of the new weekly poll I gotta ask. Yeah there are different girls we can romance and there are ways to see sex scenes without necessarily romancing them. But can we romance more than one girl at the same time?

    1. Of course! The more, the merrier! >D

    2. Oh great, cause I was interested in a lot of the women but whenever I think about denying young Farah.....I just can't :)

    3. Don't worry, you can plow her like a horse and still tap other sources. xD

  11. Hi Gabe,

    The updates are getting better and better, loving it all. It may have been mentioned and my brain is just forgetting, but will there be a NG+ and NG+ Ultra (I think that's the term for the latter) ?

    If so, will it be the same deal with PCs like in LOQOII where you can only bring a certain amount per playthrough (e.g. Hire Melina can't hire Murdock) but will eventually have them all if you playthrough NG+ and NG+ Ultra?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Glad to hear it! LoQO:O will actually have infinite playthroughs, I've learned from past game and carefully structured everything from the ground to make sure it'd be possible to replay the game as many times as you want, without ever having to start a brand new character. :)

      And no, getting one PC will not prevent another to join this time around. ^^

      Delete
  12. Handy tools for exploring the world. These kind of things score big points in my book. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well we don't want this to happen but it will happen for sure one day: after you finish the Origin game and thereby the Opala trilogy will you continue making hentai games (at least I hope you do :) ) ?
    If you do will the game's story be set in our time or in the future being sci-fi like or will it be kind of medievalish again ?

    1. Ever since I made LoQOII, I always had a goal to make one game for each country found in that world I created...LoQOII takes place in the Kingdom of Namaria, LoQO:O takes places in the Beldorian Empire, and LoQOIII would take place in the Land of Savages. (Which has a actual name, just not revealed yet)

      So besides LoQOIII (Not LoQO:O), I also have an idea for a spin-off featuring all the women, but a different theme and setting. x3

    2. do you plan to hire anyone to help you make the game in order to improve production speed/ make a larger game or do you intend on keeping solo?

      Delete
    3. It may sound strange, but I'm not sure it would be all that faster to hire more people...mostly because I still need to supervise every little detail myself to make sure everything works together. :)

      But maybe I just need to be a bit more open minded and see the posibilities!

      Delete
  14. Do you have any scenes on game over (like with the Oniquines and Giga Lardos from LOQO2) planned for this game? Any in this episode?

    Related question, is there any way yet to get into the region with the 4 dogs in Western Colussia? I've searched everywhere for the ladder leading to that sewer grate but can't seem to find it!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. None yet, they probably won't be added until later along the games.
      And no, you can't access that area just yet!

      Delete
  15. Concerning the next game you're planing to make could you put your main focus on Greece ?
    Quick idea: Osira could make a cameo in this game or even be a secret playable character - this would tie in with the story from LOQO perfectly since it would portrait her during her time of exile when she was searching for power
    Also you could use Greece as a kind of inspiration to create new furries or monstergirls :)
    Not to mention that I am Greek so it would be kind of cool to see my country as the main event place for your next game :D

    1. I think she said she'd do the land of savages but I actually really like this idea. Ever since Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the God of War series Greek mythology has been one of my favorite settings.

    2. Don't forget, Greece was half of the first LoQO...I think. x3

      Delete
    3. Well that was just like one town... It would be awesome if we could get more of Greece :D

  16. Hey Gabe <3 I was wondering if you would ever add some Shotacon X Milf thing?! It's my most favorite thing ever, but it's ok if not, I know alot of people don't like it! (I use super shrink on my characters dick all the time xD But I would like to see a small body being dominated by a big milf <3) Keep up the good work! And I would like to say I for one enjoy the story alot, but the sex scenes make this is the frosting to the cake! Ice cream cake!

    1. I would like to add my voice to this!

    2. The answer is going to be the same reason why gabe doesn't add lolis to the game

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I probably won't touch on that subject anytime soon, the closest to shotacon/lolicon would be the Ra'Tiki character, but only due to her body type.

      Delete
    4. Whad about.... An elf man... with a similar body type?..... xD

      Delete
    5. It's not that gabe may or may not want to do that, it's the fact child pornography laws in a lot of countries in europe are extremely strict to the point that even drawings can get you sent to prison, it's not worth the risk to gabes work to do it, if you want that type of material buy stuff off of dlsite

      Delete
    6. Yeah I already know, but when she mentioned the Ra'Tiki character who obviously looks like a loli, I was just joking about making a character that is male, that looks or is similar to the Ra'Tiki character. And I already got shotacon type stuff but having it in a game you love is special! That's why people always ask to have their fetish in games and stuff they like, Loqo already fills my Foot and netorare and gang bang and blowjob and milf fetishes xD

  17. Considering the current poll, I am not going to vote this time. The reason is that I think the ending should be based on the playthrough. Depending on choices a player could be without anyone, keep young Farah around perhaps (doing who knows what to the fabric of time), or send everything back to how it should have been and have his one gal (or for that guy who wants it so bad, his one Equine). I enjoy harem endings, but I haven't felt any disappointment from not seeing one in your games yet, and I don't know that it needs it. Bad ends, if earned have their place too. Basically I see all as valid options depending on our choices and if all were around I would likely play through to see each of them in turn.

    Sorry if that was a little rambling, I'm posting this right before getting to sleep late.

    1. there is a harem ending in LOQO1 if i am not mistaken and there is always a possibility that all 3 kinds of endings will be in this game if not one of the later episodes.

  18. Love the retooled collection page, and it sounds like there's a lot of features stuffed in there too make 100 percenting less frustrating.

    Hopefully at some point, you can do the same for the blacksmithing system.

  19. Gabe, two months ago I downloaded LoQO 1 Golden addition, but I kept on getting the error rgss102.dls or something like that is missing. I just assumed it was a bad link I got the game from. Then last month when I got the Beta for LoQO origins I got the same problem. I tried a bunch of things and then emailed you asking you for help. You replied telling me to check the manual that came with it. So i was pumped and ready to see what the manual said....but before i got the chance I looked in the folder and all of a sudden the LoQO Origins folder's content changed. It sort of transformed into the working beta. I just didn't ask questions and had fun. Then just recently I decided to check the LoQO1 folder again and all of a sudden it works too!!!! So moral of my story is, my laptop empathized with me and gave me the ultimate hookup XD

    1. if you miss a dll file another time you just google and download it (usually in a zip file) then just unzip it into your game folder.

  20. Plzzzzz make a "bad" ending for Gabrielle!!! I love the way she deals with "unfortunate" things happening at her all the time. Thats why she is my fav :D

    P.S: that doesnt mean the "end" for Gabrielle...

  21. Where's the latest beta for this game? Also, do you think it's possible for you to add a harem ending, where you get to keep all the romancable women with you?

    ReplyDelete

    1. The game is certainly structured to allow such an ending.
      As for the latest beta, it's only available to those who are helping sponsoring the game, everyone else have to wait for the free release!

  22. Hi,
    Is there going to be any futa content in this game?
    (She would be a perfect character for some Bible Black-esque stuff)

    1. If I would, it'd likely be the protagonist and be a very high pledge amount goal as it would cost a lot of money having every single scene, battlepose and sprite of the protagonist remade. :)
