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!

Wolf
Won by 37%, being 704 of the votes.
Horse
Second, 36% with 681 of the votes.
Bull
Second, 13% with 248 of the votes.
Other
Second, 6% with 124 of the votes.
Lizard

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)

  1. Just a quick question about the Patreon Cosplay photo reward.
    I know you said that if we don't download it before the next one come out, then we miss out on it.

    But does that been we'll never get to see it, or will it eventually be released for say LOQO:O Gold edition for something?

    I just like having all the bases covered in case of any unforseen problems.

    1. I might release the whole set later for those who has donation x amount or something. :)

    2. That's cool. I was just worried that I'd miss one if I go on holiday.

  2. How about posting the voice acting auditions and putting up a poll for who people like best?

    1. I'm not famous enough to have a bunch of VA's waiting in line for each role. x3

  3. Will there be more of the Farah minigame in ep 1?

  4. How about a poll for new enemy mobs in the world? Or a poll for new spells to be added to each character?

    1. Can't find an edit button but how about new means on travel across the map, airship,dragon, hydra, some type of land animal like chocobos

  5. Hey, will the trading cards have some way to view the full sized, uncropped picture? You showed the Laquadia cards 1 and 2 a few weeks back but all the good bits were cropped out of the pictures. :o

    1. Yes you can view them in the gallery once you've collected them

  6. Speaking about VAs. I remember a couple of weeks back when I heard Opala's VA somewhere and I thought that voice was familiar. So I checked and I saw that these VA's are actually kinda proffesional VA's. I always thought they were just people you knew and asked to voice the characters. But apparently that's their job? So then I was wondering, how do they feel when they see the script and when they say the stuff?

    Also, do they also voice the sounds their characters make? Like for example in the first game you had all those blowjob sequences. If they did, that must have been awkward as hell.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh yeah, but they wouldn't do what they do if they didn't like it. ^^
      And yes, they made all the sounds too. x3

  7. How about a poll to interest check making a mobile version? Or who should be the next one to have a side game. Our what the people would like to see for LoQO 3.

    1. I'm actually very curious Gabe is there any way for Loqo to go mobile? Is it even possible and if it is would you ever consider it?

      Delete
    2. I "think" it's possible to go mobile, but it would require talent that is way beyond my level. x3

      Delete
    3. Personally, I would use a web technology like HTML5 / CSS3 / Java Script. In this way, it would be possible to bring the application on PC / Linux / Mac / iOS / Android. It will only need a web browser. Otherwise, there has always Java and C ++ more complex but more powerful especially C ++. Currently, I am writing my first 2D Game Engine in C ++. Eventually, I would like to make games in the same style.

    4. You guys realize that this game is made on RPGMaker XP, right? Not really mobile-friendly software, especially considering it's 10 years old.
      Although I applaud you Gabe for not switching to the newer VX or Ace, since they are HUGE graphical downgrades IMO, even if they're superior in many other ways. One of the things about LoQO game I liked is how finely crafted they are asethetics-wise.

      Delete
    5. There is an app that allows you to play rpg maker games on mobile. Therefore, I assume just turning the game into an app itself would be feasible.

  8. Hi gaben again <3

    Well i have a question for those who are poor or yarr harr man/womans (pirates) in this industry when will it be "released"?

    And one more question, the pantreon is making me happy cuz' you planned to 2017 aprox right? but there's a milestone to make you WORK HARDER <3 so the game will be released sooner?

    Those 2 questions, thanks in advance :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, that milestone simply allow me to aim for the 2017 window...I can't work faster than 7 days a week I already do. xD

      And the release for episode 1 is hopefully late February. :3

  9. Ahem, I don't want to sound offensive, but how about poll regarding last goal on Patreon? I'm not really excited about largest part of money being spent on some cosplay. No, really. 2 000$ on fast production and 2 200$ on some 'celebrity'. Maybe people would like to see something else?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If the actress alluded to in the goal is who I think it is then I wouldn't mind seeing a Farah cosplay. Might be a perfect fit if you get my meaning...

      Regardless I think that once Gabe puts out the finished free version of Ep1 and people get a taste then I think alot more backers will be gained and the last goal won't remain the last goal. 3k is almost reached already plus Offbeatr backers have no reason of becoming Patreons yet so once Ep2 betas are rolling out then that will cause another nice jump.

      Delete
    2. I sincerely hope you are one of those who actually has pledged on Patreon, or your point of view might seem rather...awkward. x3

      Delete
    3. i don't entirely agree with offbeatr backers having no reason to back on patreon yet, i'm backing on both for the most important reason: supporting gabe

  10. Maybe a poll about impregnation or something? I have no idea haha
    Though it's great to know things are coming along so well!

  11. Actually I kinda have one more of a personal issue with Origins so far.
    Just concerning the Heroic/Renegade path.

    It's just that I, for example, play to see as much H as I can.
    The problem is that it isn't very clear if a choice will be a Heroic/Renegade result or a relationshiop +/-1 with the girl.

    The result is that I end up with a pretty even total of hero/renegade decisions.

    Maybe in later episodes, have it so that choices involving women are +/-1 relationship only, and that Story and non woman related choices are good/evil.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You're not supposed to know in advance, hero/renegade points are awarded for how you as a character view the world, relationship points are how women see you and how they approve/disapprove of your actions.

      How exactly would you seperate these, and still have women in the picture?

      Delete
    2. Well I suppose that's true.
      It was just that I figured that a player can be evil, but still say all the right things to a woman or the opposite of being good but being shit when it comes to women.

      Delete
    3. Hehe, well think like this...if you are flat out insulting a girl or doesn't approve of her, that leads to bad relationship points.
      But if you consider/mention ways to exploit her, which would involve others than you, it most likely leads to renegade points. :3

  12. horse man is way more suitable for a game as loqo

  13. Great work Gabe! On a side note: i bet your blog gets al lot of traffic, why do you not make a banner advertisement in order to get more revenue for your project?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Think of it that way: people who also despise ad banners will most likely have Adblock anyways.
      And if it nets a few extra internet bucks in your internet pocket to commission internet artists for internet lewd pictures... that's a win-win situation for everyone, eh? Internet economy gotta keep on flowing...

  14. A poll about fetishes that people enjoy in LOQO series the most? Or what fetishes they wish to see in Origin?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmm...Didn't I already made one, way back? Could be hard to fit a list of all fetishes though. x3

  15. So, do you still plan to release another beta, or just roll out with the completed episode 1 arty this point?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There will still be at least two more beta versions, even if the final beta version and finished release will end up being the same thing. :3

  18. Well for poll suggestions I may have got some (since I like asking so much :P)...

    Poll 1: What is your favourite sex fetish ? (titfuck/footjob/blowjob/anal/lolicon/milf/mature/oppai-loli/monster-girl/bestiality)

    Poll 2: What are your favourite kind of endings in H-games ?
    (harem/good/bad/wtf-endings/open-ends)

    Poll 3: (May related to the second question in some way) Would you like multiple endings despite good and bad endings ?

    Poll 4: Favourite gaming genre

    Poll 5: Favourite gaming series (out of some you may select)

    Poll 6: Which side-character should get a scene in LOQO:O ?
    (Naacia/prostitute in Thebes/queen of Shaabera/the monstergirls from the hooker sidequest from LOQO2/and of course any that Gabriel might remember :D)

    1. You forgot Bal'rana and get daughter, the distant wagon girl, the sexy jester, mistress Tna, or any of the female cast members from 1,2, or origins that may show up.

    2. Well like I said if there are more characters Gabe might just add them to the options list if she ever makes my suggestions real polls

  19. Question: Will the savegames from the beta work in episode 1? Or will it require an "entire" playthrough again?

    1. They should work for episode 1 as well, unless something unexpected needs to be made. :)

  20. How about a poll for Which of your older furry characters do we want to see in the LOQO series, like Gab the Cat or Darcien the horseman, Midona the snake etc.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Gab, Melody, Darcian, Mindora etc. were all in LoQOII...and Melody was also in the first LoQO. x3

      Delete
    2. Well I mean "see them in action", if you know what I mean. ;-)

      Delete
    3. Adding more furries is treading on thin ice, since the community is kind of split on its stance about them. See the Layla/Nipha poll where roughly half the votes(supposedly with rigging considered) were for "none of them" still. I imagine if the current poll would have a "None" option as well it'd gather some hefty sum of votes.

      Delete
  21. For a poll, since you've only got one Patreon goal left how about you list some ideas for other goals (fully voiced sex scenes, softcore introduction images for characters when you first meet them, additional side content, etc)? Might be a good idea to have other goals ready for when the last one gets achieved.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Looks like some other ones have been added since I last checked!

      Delete
    2. I dunno, it feels a little silly to add goals for the sake of having goals, it's better if it's really something not possible otherwise.
      I could have owning a customizable castle as a goal, or traveling by sea, but those are features I already intended to have in the first place. :3

      Delete
  22. Gabe, have you considered commissioning some original soundtracks? Musical artists are about as numerous as, uhm... graphical artists. I know it seems like a goal waaaay behind the priorities list, but the stock music I've heard since LoQO I is kind of boring already. Especially the combat theme. It's definitely something not too major of a goal that would spice the game up a little. At least that's my personal opinion.
    The second question is: where do we talk about LoQO:O? ULMF usually took care of providing threads and forum discussion about gameplay, giving hints, guides, walkthroughs etc., but have you also considered launching some official forum of your own? I imagine gathering community opinions and commentary in between the comment section here, the comments on your HF account and e-mails sent to your personal inbox is kind of unwieldy. A stable, single forum would also provide a comfortable platform for the exchange between the community of the game themselves, rather than just platforms which basically serve as "ask me questions".

    1. There is always the LoQO Wiki.
      And I have thought about getting original soundtracks, but I don't really know anyone in the business or what the avarage cost should be to have songs commissioned.
