Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Voice of Laquadia

Tuesday update!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

Drillings still going on, making it...hmm, 8 weeks in a row, I think?
That single appartment they've been going at for two weeks now must look like a swiss cheese, I can't even phantom what requires so much drilling, it's like if they're replacing replacements for the replaced replacements they had to replace!

So mentally I'm still out of it in something best described as an art/writer's block.
But of course, I've still done some work over the week, mostly focusing on arranging lines for the remaining characters and sending them out to be recorded, I'm actually rather surprised how much it turned out to be!

To put it in perspective, LoQOII had in total around 250 recorded lines in the entire game combined, LoQO: Origin - Episode 1 alone seems to end up with around 300 voiced lines, so...yeah.

And following the theme of voices, I'm presenting Laquadia's voice with a line from the game!
Enjoy and listen to the sample by downloading it from right here!

That's all for this week, see you against next time!

  1. I wonder if Laquadia is referring to who I think she is in that line.

  2. I may have asked this before, but where did you get the program to make the Overworld from LOQO II?

    1. You mean the tileset? Pretty sure I got the basic one off a place called "RPG Palace", then I made some edits and tweaks to it on my own.

    2. Btw, this is a random and trivial question.

      But is this game being made in RPG Maker XP, like the previous two? And if so, are you ever going to use VX or VX Ace in a future game you make?

      Delete
    3. This one is made with RPG Maker XP as well.
      VX and VX Ace might have prettier graphics by default and perhaps higher native resolution, but it is extremely slim on content and takes several steps back in other areas.
      I am planning to try and make something for myself, combinding the best of both at some point, but that won't be until Origin is finished, at earliest.

    4. I can easily tell that when it comes to aesthetics at the very least, VX and VXA fall flat on their faces. The graphical resources and tilesets for XP are just better and prettier. VX Ace though, being newest and around since quite a time anyways, has a more active and bigger modding/scripting scene. It's also more flexible, intuitive to operate I think, has a lot more base technical features and handles the in-game battle and messaging systems more efficiently.
      But yeah, most of VX/Ace games will be ugly as fuck in comparison to the older XP.

    1. Funny thing is, these repairs were made by a large "team" of workers, but for the last two weeks, there was just ONE guy...though some people have surely reported in and complained, because today it was four workers.

    2. maybe they bought alot of ikea stuff.

  4. I hope we get a voice preview of one of the sexy lines next time! I hope a large percentage of those 300 lines are naughty ones!

  5. and will it be possible to recruit laquida despite not being all that "nice" at the start?

    1. She's #1 on the boob chart, so my guess is that she'll be romancable at some point. Currently it's only possible to worsen the relationship with her. Everything else does nothing or yields heroic points.

      @ Auril: The last beta was released about a month ago. When can we expect the next one? Still this month or perhaps in early March?

      Delete
    2. Don't you mean #2? I thought Farah was the "Breast Queen/Goddess" <3

      Also I see you're a Whorecraft fan.

    4. First I was wondering how you knew that. This is what happens when you're on ten forums at once xD But yeah, her games are pretty good. The only thing that really bugs me is the way she communicates with her supporters, meaning that she actually doesn't.

      But my question still stands. Just replace the @ Auril with @ Gabe. Too bad you can't edit posts, just delete them.

      Delete
  6. The voice acting is good, but I can't say it matches what my imagination already conceived about Laquadia's voice. I think it suffers the same thing Farah's voice acting did in LoQO 1: the voice actress is too young and doesn't fit a "mature" character IMO. Of course, I can't honestly expect an audibly older woman (one that has a voice more or less "oozing with sex" at the same time) to pop up being interested in voice acting for the game.

    1. I think that's a typical reaction people have when a work of fiction is expanded and gains a new channel of communication. Didn't we all have our own idea of what Harry Potter looked and sounded like after reading the books? I personally wasn't a fan of Radcliff's portrayal, as it clashed with the mental image I had drawn in my head years before. The same thing applies with audio.
      I personally won't judge until we get the full version, as this was just one out dozens of lines.

      Delete
    2. But...err, Farah's VA has always been the same since the first one, you never liked her in the second game either? x3

      Delete
    3. Oh, uh, no, for some reason I just remember her voice more from the first game rather than the sequel. Don't really even know why. But yeah, her actress and Opala/Osira's sounded too much like they were all the same age. If my memory doesn't fail me I think Osira's actress was the best, but maybe that's because it's easier to record menacing lines rather than neutral ones.

      Delete
    4. wha? Farah's VA was the same in 1 and 2? They sound so different though. Did you tell the VA to sound older in the second one or something?

      Delete
    5. It just happened naturally, I guess. x3

      Delete
  7. I"m not gonna lie. It's a bit... higher pitched than I expected or liked. But the actress did a good job, and, really, that's more important.

    ...Basically the same reaction I had to Chie in Persona 4: The Golden.

    1. Voices is always something you grow to like with time...and they can't all sound like Farah or Osira, if you also want variation. x3

    2. I know, I know.

      ...Heh. They've all been replaced anyway, haven't they?

      I'm sorry Gabe. I guess I've just got a thing for the contraltoes.

      Delete
    3. No, only Osira's VA has been replaced since she couldn't be associated with adult projects anymore.

      Delete
  8. Nice preview, I think the voice acting is my fav part of your games so i'm very happy that you've recorded more lines. Can't wait until ep1 is finished (and the next beta!).

    On another note, will your blog be effected by the porn restrictions google is placing on the blogger system?

    1. Seems like it. Google is banning all Blogspot porn sites:

    2. Yup, Google damn near made a fatwa on indie porn, between this and the pending net neutrality ruling, my country is looks less like a free soaring eagle and more like a bitch in a pawn shop getting fucked by a gimp...It's a Pulp Fiction reference, trust me.

      Delete
    3. Gabe said it wouldn't be, as there's basically no porn-ish content here, not even links to said content. And I'm not sure that one or two pictures count. I have no idea where Google will draw the line...

      I'm just wondering what'll come first: The complete episode 1 or another beta (0.08)? The last beta was released about a month ago, but so far it's been quiet again. And episode 1 is slated for a release in March or April, at least from what I've gathered.

      Delete
    4. I removed the only sexual picture this blog had, and censored the trading card gamble preview, so there isn't anything porn related material here.

      As for release date - since I can't sleep, I can't work, so clearly I also can't keep the March deadline with these conditions as I didn't take into account two, three months of blocked progression I could do absolutely nothing about...
      But the next beta should be available soon. :3

      Delete
    5. Is this why there haven't been pictures on your blog posts lately?

      Delete
    6. With the lack of sleep or the change of blog rules?
      Neither has affected the lack of pictures, I just don't have anything more to share...there is only so many different characters in the game I can show before all are seen. xD

      Delete
    7. You don't have to show new characters. Maybe just different variations of the characters we have already seen.

    8. Like their happy or embarrassed expressions. Or the face Ratikki had when she told me she has needs and when the time come I shouldn't argue. That had a big impact on me, first time I got sexually intimidated by a video game girl.

      Delete
    9. Oh yeah, you totally don't mess with the Tiki! ;D

      Delete
  9. Wow, this new VA is sounds good! Makes me curious as to who she's talking about...
    Excited to see another update, though it sucks you're stuck with that noise still. I once lived with an obnoxious, hateful brat next door who'd blast music real late for three years. I know the frustration. lol

    But you're hanging in there and keeping up the effort! Nice! Though I have one issue: I don't using Patreon and I want to throw money at you. Is there another way I can do it? I don't have a monthly income to keep giving you money, but I want to be able to donate what I can when I can. You rock, Gabe!

    1. Yeah, I confronted them about it and they said it'll finally be over by the end of the month...NEXT month, as in, March. D;

      And sure, but you'd have to contact me directly for that, my mail is in pretty much every artwork I've ever made. :)

  10. You need to unflag your blog for containing adult content since it no longer does.

    1. It still has nudity in form of those character poses.

    1. Cute! Except all the money is still going into the game in form of beastman mode costs and other things, even if I am currently unable to personally do any work on it, it doesn't mean everyone else on the project is too.

      Nice try though, I give you 1/10 for effort. :P

  12. I must say, Laquadia's voice was just about perfect. Very nice job on things so far!!
    So excited for the final release :D

    2. The damage has already been done by censoring the two pieces of actual sexual content on the blog...but oh well, guess that just means there is no need to hold back on any future adult content!

  14. Well if you can't repost it I guess the only thing to do is put something 3 times as graphic to make up for it :)

  15. Her voice makes her sound a good 20 younger than she is. Still good. Looking Forward to Osira's voice.

  16. Was a bit suprised over the new beta downloading it now It came a bit out of the blue for me.

    1. Kinda took me by surprise too... xD
      But there wasn't any point in delaying it, since I don't know if I'll be able to put any real work into the game before the drillings finally stops sometime this month.
