Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Val'Toras

Tuesday update, right on schedule!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

So it looks like the drillings have finally stopped, since I haven't heard any of that for the past two days...yay! Like, really yay!
Along with that, beta v0.07 was released over the weekend with production going along smoothly, the release of LoQO: Origin - Episode 1 may be within reach for February/March, taking into account the two weeks without sleep I had to endure.

Also introducing a new baddie is one of the seven warlords who rule parts of the Land of Savages, and one who'll show up in LoQO: Origin - Episode 1.
He is the leader of the Val'Toras species, they're basically the LoQO universe's answer to bullmen, like Ra'Tiki and the Neifu Tribe are to catgirls.
The Val'Toras consider themselves being a pure breed species while minotaurs are viewed as the lesser "branch" with too much outside breeding watering down the generations.

Without spoiling too much, I can at least say his loyality lies with Osira...dum-dum-duuuum!
Other than that, all voiced lines for Laquadia has been recorded with the other characters soon to follow as well.

Aaaand that'll be all for this week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

Tuesday update, yes, it really is one of those again!

Oih, tired developer is very tired...
I really wish they would be more considered about the residents in the appartment and do all the incredibly loud drillings the four hours after 12AM, rather than the four hours before it...
The ear protectors I bought does help make the noise more manageable, even if that makes me sleep bad for other reasons, but nothing four cups of coffee stacked in a row doesn't fix.

So yeah, even in zombie mode, I feel rather confident the next beta will be released this weekend.
It'll add more story, more tradings cards, more unlockable illustrations, one new mini-scene, one mini-game for Gabrielle, add Ra'Tiki to your party/camp AND make Master Hen'Tai show up!
Oh, and it'll also add a couple of new areas to previously seen locations as well!

Aaaand that'll be all for this week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Osira

Tuesday update, one week after the other!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

In the last poll, it was asked...no wait, there was no poll this time! How about that!

If nothing else, the weekly polls will make a return once the first episode of LoQO: Origin is released, hopefully next month, when a fresh new batch of poll ideas will be possible.

But in the meantime, why not have a look and enjoy Osira's battlepose?

She is the evil sister of Queen Opala, and will return with a new, strong allied on her side in search for power and with the intention to settle a thing, haunting her from the past...

So, what is new for this week?
Not really that much, they're doing very loud appartment repairs which have left me with basically no sleep for the last five days, with the exception of the weekend, and it would be really unwise to do game work that requires absolute concentration when you're a train-wreck.

But I've still done "something", of course! Like changing how text shows up during the scenes, adding more trading cards, along with a few minor tweaks like making the toggle button for Sprinting Mode easier and more accurate.

I also believe the next beta version will hit during the weekend, next week.
Aiming for this one would be a little too optimistic, since I don't know if I'll get to sleep.

And that'll be all for this week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

Tuesday update, first one for the new year!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

In the last poll, it was asked what kind of "beastman" the protagonist should be, if such a feature would ever be included in LoQO: Origin, with 1853 votes gathered!

Won by 37%, being 704 of the votes.
Second, 36% with 681 of the votes.
Second, 13% with 248 of the votes.
Second, 6% with 124 of the votes.

Last with 5%, being 96 of the votes.

It was pretty close with the two top voted, but wolfman was the preferred winner!

So what is new for this week?
Well, I've been working a lot on the story lately, to the point where the end of Episode 1 is nearly within reach, along with Ra'Tiki being introducted and Master Hen'Tai making a come-back!

I'm also beginning to send out lines for recording this month, and all illustrations for Western Edition scenes has been completed as well with Eastern Edition not far behind!
So the next few upcoming weeks will probably be very light on updates, as I'm pretty much only adding finishing touches to content and the story for the episode.

And that's all for now, sorry for the short update!
(Feel free to suggest poll ideas, I'm absolutely burned out myself. xD)
