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!

  1. Is she drunk lol? Also, Harley Quinn. Atleast that's what I thought when I heard that. Suffice it to say, it require the voice to even make me think that, when I saw her design it didn't even occur to me.

    1. Masquerade is just a very unstable person. xD
      And yes, she is totally inspired by Harley Quinn's original appearance, there is no hiding that!

    2. I'm going to assume here that sex calms her down? Also, she will probably go crazy for the protagonist right? That would make sense.

    3. Let's just say the Broncallo Sausage she is talking about is the protagonist's penis. ;P

    4. What? I thought he's just carrying some heavy emergency snack in his pants!
      To be honest, a Broncallo Sausage does sound delicious... no homo.

    5. Hehe, it might actually be pretty good...they basically look like buffalos after all. x3

    1. I wish there were fewer betas and that I could've done so much more for each one...but evil construction workers are evil. D:

    2. welp, since there probably won't be any drilling in the work process of episode 2 i am expecting big things!

    3. You forgot that the other apartments need renovating too!

  3. Keep up the good work and how do you think the release date is looking at the moment?

    1. I can't really say until the constructions stops, then I may be able to guess, depending on how quickly my body recovers from the whole ordeal.

  4. Hey Gabe are bringing the brothel back if so you should have main male protagonist please some lady clients not just humans either. Furrys, monster girls, and female animals that would be cool to see ;)

    1. That sounds like a pretty expensive and high up milestone. x3

    2. Actually, now that I think about it, usually when I see adult work featuring Monsters and humans it either falls into two categories. Male monsters go for human females and human men get screwed over, or Female monsters go for human men and human women get screwed over (ie Monster Girl Quest and Monster Girl encyclopedia series).
      I have seen very few that ever blend the two (that or I'm just not looking hard enough x3). Anyway it would be cool if maybe in future games or something you might be able to blend the two. Like add more female monsters and if the protagonists lose against them the game over screen is the female monsters having their way with them. Or the brothel idea Jordan mentioned ^^. Maybe when you bring polls back you can ask the people that?

    3. Also, Masquerade's voice is almost exactly what I imagined it would be, it's awesome!

  5. I can't help but think that one of the outfits will be those "pointless armor" clothing

  6. Just wanted to stop in and say thanks for posting weekly updates and interacting with your fans, we really appreciate it! While we're all excited to see what Episode 1 has in store for us, please take your time in finishing everything up. We know how hard you've been working over the past year – it would be silly to rush things now.

    By the way, I think the option to pick a Beastman protagonist is a GREAT idea. A while back when you announced that most of the scenes would involve the protagonist and each lady, I commented that I was still hoping to see plenty of monsters and animals having their way with the woman. Now everyone gets what they want... Damn you're full of great ideas.

    Here's hoping you get some peace and quiet, sleep for 4 days straight and finish up on a high note!!

  7. I have two theories for why the drilling is taking so long.
    1. The rest of the tenants are breaking things to keep them there, because they are jealous of all your porn.

    Or 2. The drillers are just such huge fans, they just can't stand to leave you.

    1. 2 should be the opposite since they are disrupting the work progress causing it to take longer time and a heavier toll on gabe,

    2. gabe, gabriel, gabework, swegabe?

  8. Hope the game development goes smoothly...
    Also: do you plan to ever do a dark story in your games (by that I mean a story with darker elements then you already have going i.e having a main character die or something like that) ?
    Also I have to admire how long the work takes and that the workers work so long on whatever they're working on I mean after like 2-3 weeks of constant drilling I would only do like 2-4 hours long drill-works and afterwards call it a day :P

    1. One of the three egyptian ladies was actually supposed to die in LoQOII...but I never found a good opportunity for it to happen in the game with a good purpose, so who knows what I have in store. >3

    2. Lemme guess... it should have been Osira right? I came up to this assumption because I made the wrong choice during the time when she was kidnapped and played through to the end and she was nowhere to be found so yeah... correct me if I'm wrong ^^'
      It is a lot of fun writing with you :3 Till next time :D (that is if I have another question in mind)

  9. I have a few questions that I've been meaning to ask, hopefully you can answer:

    1. On average, how much do you pay the artists for the art/scenes. I feel like the scenes could be much more "dynamic" if you could have a couple more variations in the art. Example: in the BJ scene with Laquadia, have an image "in her mouth" ( like the current one) but then also have one, "outside her mouth" and then throughout that scene, you could simply alternate between the images every few lines. So you aren't stuck staring at a single picture the whole time. It doesn't have to be anything complicated, just some minor variation to keep the scene dynamic. I think most visual novels do this at the moment. I don't know if this would be expensive but if it's possible to do, it would be really nice.

    2nd: I remember reading somewhere that you can automatically have the text move instead of manually having the player press buttons. This would make scenes much more enjoyable with both hands off the keyboard, if you catch my drift...

    Lastly: I'm hoping that this time around, replaying scenes will also activate the recorded voice lines. It's a lot of hassle to save a copy of the game just prior to a scene, in order to enjoy hearing the voices. Surely there's a way of activating the voice every time you replay a scene?

    Also will the player get a threesome with Adult and Teen Farah at some point?

    Anyway thanks for your time.

    1. 1) I rather not go into details, but let's just say a single individual scene illustration, not a whole scene, with the cost of all three editions variations combined, goes on nearly $1,000 - adding a bunch of variations would significally bump up the price.

      2) Not sure if that is possible with RPG Maker, or at least I haven't found such a script yet, and even if I did find and added it, it'd corrupt all beta access player's saves - brand new scripts added aren't compatible with older saves.

      3) It can of course be done, but it is a hassle unless you can only replay scenes from a specific location with only one fixed BGM playing, which instead would lower the amount of customizing.

      4) Who knows, sounds like a nice end-game reward though...!

    2. Ahh I completely forgot about the existing character variations and the beastman stuff that's coming later. Guess every single change would have to be made 5? times instead of 1, so yeah I suppose that's not possible without spending a lot.

      Anyway not to sound impatient for more info but do you plan on taking a break after episode 1 is released? I think last time around you went straight from LoQO2 to the Golden Edition and then immediately to Origins with no breaks inbetween, sounds like a lot of hard work.

  10. You'd think they would've struck oil by now ;-) Or reached the planet's core. Anyway, good too hear that work on your side can soon get underway again at full steam.

    I listened to the sound sample from Masquerade and think it's OK. Not really my cup of tea, but it's pretty much what I expected her to sound like based on her lines and design. Harley Quinn was my first thought and that pretty much nailed it. Now the voice cemented that notion.
    Personally I don't like over the top characters like her and the voice doesn't really help, but that's just me. But we've seen only very little of her so far, so it's hard to say where the story takes her.

    1. I'm more surprised China hasn't called in their defense force due to invasions coming from the earth. ;P

    Glad to hear the noise is FINALLY drilling down, Gabe. Soon it'll be over and you can get the rest you've earned

    1. Thanks! Though not so much earned, as needed, I just want to get back to working on my game already, dammit! >_<;

  12. Here's a poll suggestion. Once you have released voice samples for all the girls, put up a poll asking which one can you jerk off to the most?

    1. This reminds of the original game where you had those voiced sex "scenes". Makes me kinda nostalgic even though I played it like last summer LOL!
