Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Voice of Osira

Tuesday update, y'all!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

I was going to happily announce the drilling is finally done, then I saw a notice in my mailbox...
So here is the deal, apparently they are completely changing out the four main water pipes running through the building, and while they're doing this, they're also renovating any appartment in the complex that is empty.

There aren't really any good news, because I found out they have only done half the pipes, and work on the next one will start this month...and it includes my appartment in the list of those they need access to, they're also going to renovate FOUR more appartments with this main pipe, and each appartment has an estimated one month working time.

I guess I can only hope these appartments that need renovations are on floors far away from my own so the drillings can barely be heard, or not heard at all, I probably also have to completely revamp my sleeping pattern to make sure their renovation work is never being done while I'm asleep, because that is pretty much all I can do without moving out, right?
I hope all of you can understand this is beyond frustrating to me, not only because of what the lack of sleep does to me, but I really want to go back and work with my game with full force.
But I refuse to let those f**king ***holes win, it's just such a huge insult they still demand full rent, so I'm going to take this week and try to adjust my sleeping hours, first time I'd be drastically changing them in over 10 years.

I know this almost sounds like an April's Fool joke, but sadly, that day isn't until tomorrow. D:

Anyway, in game related news, I've worked some more on the costume aspect of the game and arranging for more lines to be recorded, along with adding a few by Osira, but the other people creating content for the game is doing a fantastic job and Beastman Mode is coming along nicely!

And with that, I'm presenting you with a line by Osira from the game, with her new VA!
Enjoy and listen to the sample by downloading it from right here!

It might also be worth mentioning that LewdGamer has been reviewing both previous LoQO games and even have an upcoming interview with myself in the pipeline! ;)

See you next week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Voice of Masquerade

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

Drilling, drilling against the wall, who are you driving most insane of all?
In all seriousness, it has been slowing down, most of last week was sweet, sweet silence, but they did a little drilling today and yesterday, I also spotted a van belonging to a painting business last week, so lets hope these are all signs that they're finishing things up at long last.

I've still been working on the game by adding all of Masquerade's recorded lines and figuring out how the costume system should play out, so with the next beta, you'll be able to try that out! Basically, you need to collect pieces of "Costume Fabrics" that comes in sets for each specific character, these can be earned by finding them through exploration, as rewards from sidequests and/or possibly in other ways too!

By turning in three pieces at a clothier and paying a small designer's fee, you'll have a new outfit weaved! And while I did mentioned "Minotaur Queen" and "Women With No Name" as outfits in the previous Tuesday update, it's not 100% guaranteed these specific costumes will be unlockable in episode 1 since I'm having more made - though I can still promise at least one optional costume for each playable girl will be available, if not the two mentioned by name, then two others instead!

And since I mentioned Masquerade's voice, I'm presenting you 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!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Horse Protagonist

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

They're still at it, but I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as the drillings have calmed down in intensity this week, so hopefully they're all done soon!

And for this week, it's time to introduce the last one of the three beastmen on offer for Beastman Mode, the stud! So that makes it Wolfman, Bullman and Horseman! Who would you play as, unless you want to go the safe route and play a regular human, who comes both in creamy white and chocolate black? x3

While I don't feel sharp enough to add any story to the game due to the impressive lack of sleep streak, I have been working on it nonetheless with some other things.

Whenever the next beta hits, it will at least come with all of Masquerade's recorded lines added to it, a few more titles and the added feature of finding, unlocking and changing into different costumes that will both change how characters look in battle, and also their sprites.

While the protagonist is currently not planned to get any extra outfits besides the ones you naturally unlock throughout the story, the female partymembers will all have a minimum of one optional costume each to find in episode 1.

Lets call some of these outfits...Cavegirl, Woman With No Name and Minotaur Queen. ;)

That's all for this week, stay tuned for the next one!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Bull Protagonist

Tuesday update, aww'yeah!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

The race is on - will the drillings stop or will my mind snap first? Who will come out victorious!? But in all seriousness and trying to hold back the whining here, I feel very grateful there will only be three more weeks of construction work going on in my appartment complex, at most.

Sadly I haven't really been able to do anything with the game this week either, which likely will be a repeating tale until I can sleep properly, so I've only done some bug fixing from the previous beta and supervising content being created for the game by other people, such as the beastman mode illustrations, battleposes, pixel sprites, and of course voice recordings.

Speaking of which, this week I'm introducing the bullman choice out of the three beasts that'll eventually be available! Now, this guy would be of the same species as another bull I showed before, the Val'Toras who'd be an ally of Osira.
And thus, only the horseman remain!

(EDIT - Just a small mentioning that the model scout and photographer working with me to make the cosplay photoshoots happen goes under the name Radim KlĂ­mek, if anyone was curious!)

See you again next week, and thanks for enduring this tough time with me!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Wolf Protagonist

Tuesday update, here we are!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

Finally being able to confront the workers doing all the drillings, I learned they'll at long last be done by the end of March, or any day before that.

So, it sounds like I'm soon allowed to get some long needed sleep and start the healing process, it's been a very rough time and I feel both awful and really depressed about not being able to work on the game...not to mention how infuriating it has been to hold back the release of episode 1 when I'm so close to finishing it.

But to not make this delay a waste of time and to apologize for being unable to work recently due to all of this, I've decided to add a "secret" milestone for my Patreon, not listed and not tied to a specific sum - Adding Bad Ends to the game.

There might be more, but as of right now, Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Episode 1 will include at least three different ones, and if the illustrations for all scenes in Beastman Mode are finished before the release of episode 1, that feature will be included as well!

On the subject of Beastman Mode, here is a preview of the wolf option for the protagonist!

(EDIT - I forgot to mention the latest beta was released yesterday!)

See you next week!
