Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Cosplay Overview

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

This week is going to be a pretty short update, I'm afraid. x3
I'm currently trying a few different things to get more sleep, but since I'm unusued to it all, I'm actually get less sleep than I normally do...so I apologize in advance if my English turns out worse than normal in this update or if some sentances are oddly pieced together!

But there are some good news, I've learned this entire building WILL be finished and free from all construction work and drilling by the end of August, if we're fortunate, end of June as they're trying to get it done before vacations which is in July.

So that mean production can finally resume at full force again into July, if they're finished by June, or September if they don't - but the important thing is that we all have a end in sight, yay for that!
In the meantime, I'll of course try to do my best and work whenever I can while supervising other parts being done, and also aim to get the first episode 1.

This week's I decided to show a line-up of the three cosplayers done so far, in familiar poses to fans of LoQO, as you've surely seen the source material to these "battleposes".
As always, I'll see you again next week!

    1. Hehe, but of course! Osira and Farah is introduced near the end of episode 1, Opala will show up almost right at the start of episode 2. :)

    "by the end of August"

    "August"

    Poor Gabe....

    Anyway, this post might be short but it's definitely quite BIG! :D

    Also the girl cosplaying Gabe is really cute.

    1. I only hope all the fans understands I'm not being lazy, in fact...I'm currently on medication against depression because I can't work. >>;

      And glad to hear you like her! ^^

    2. That sucks... I bet after the drilling ends you'll feel like you're in paradise or something.

      BTW, kudos to you for choosing models that are not...well... sticks. Not that there is anything wrong with slim girls but the more full girls don't get much love these days....

    3. I would say it's more about luck! I haven't been able to be too picky. x3

    6. I hope everything gets better for you soon Gabe. You are usually so cheerful with your posts so I hate to see you so down, especially with that medicine comment. Don't worry, your true fans have your back and won't think your lazy. :)

      PS. I know it's hard to find the perfect models to cosplay a character and these girls look great. It's just funny though that Gabe and Farah traded skin tones lol

      Delete
    7. Oh, I didn't mean to worry anyone! I'm just trying to explain this is a very rough time and shouldn't be taken lightly, that's all. :)

      Haha, yeah, it's kinda funny the least dark skinned girl in the game turned out to have the biggest tan so far in the photoshoots. x3

  4. This is starting to look like your hidden journal, just say i couldn't finish the project in time or i'm stretching the benefit of patreon as long as possible.
    People this is why you shouldn't use patreon the project goes in hiatus most likely to gain more money.
    You know if copyright didn't exist i would take this game for my own and finish it just from the sheer frustration.

    1. If anything, the "stretching" would only have a negative impact as I'd more than likely to get far more donations once the first episode is finally complete.
      But hey, you can always prove me wrong by being awoken around 3-5 times every time you try to sleep, 3-4 months in a row, and come back and tell me it didn't affect your concentration the slightest.

      And the game isn't on hiatus, CG for the scenes are still being made, voice clips are still being recorded, optional illustrations still being added, pixel/sprites still being animated.

      Delete
    2. The donation are bound to come so i don't see how that'll stop you from stretching it out.
      This is real life shit happen, construction work is illegal past the evening so i can't see how hellish it can be, unless you're that privileged you where donated for this project needless to say things are expected from you.

      As for hiatus when was the last beta again?

      Delete
    3. Pretty sure it's only illegal in the US, which Gabe is not from.
      Last beta was in March.
      And even if you did finish it, tis e probably make it a shit game.

      Delete
    4. I live in Sweden where Gabe is from and it's illegal here to do construction work past 10 PM in residential areas and the earliest you are allowed to start is 7 am. So yeah, Gabe is delaying it for more patreon money which i don't mind if he is up front about it, but to keep making up excuses is just insulting your fans.

      Delete
    5. Last beta was january v0.07 i'll let you do the math.
      Also a friendly advice expand your horizon the world doesn't revolve around the US even third world countries have these sort of laws.

      Yes you're right if i don't invest time in the game i'll make a shit one, but only if i don't.

      Delete
    6. No, last beta was v0.08 in March, if you want to accuse me, at least get your facts straight.

      Delete
    7. Fine my bad the last beta was 0.08 in march still far from the deadline you promised.

      Delete
    8. You know, your post seems to treat all of us who donate money to her to be victims who brainlessly follow her and are being tricked. But I think it's insulting for you to think we are this stupid. A lot of us are aware that we can cancel pledges/change the amount we give, and a lot of us wanted her to use Patreon. And hell there are those of us who donated before her Patreon was created so we don't have to pay for beta access until after episode one is complete. And considering she releases each episode and the finished project for FREE, there are those of us who simply wait for that because they can't afford to pay for beta access. And then there are those of us who only pay every once in awhile, not continuously, only when a new beta is released. "Oh hey new Beta! I guess I'll pay for the month of March so I can get it then cancels pledge to pay for April because I'm not an endless fountain of money". Not to mention that Patreon takes 10% of the pledge so that's even less money for her. So really, Gabe stretching this out would not benefit her at all money wise. It would benefit her money wise to be done with this episode as soon as possible so Everyone can start paying for episode 2 Beta access. So your post insults both Gabe's and her supporters' intelligence. Congrats.

      Delete
    9. You know where you can keep that offended attitude of your, as a paying supporter i want my product in the time promised plain and simple.

      The running improbable excuse of construction work hindering you when you actually maximizing your profit is an insult to me and everyone else.

      Btw the project isn't free she had her money first, and yes patreon takes 10% it's called payment for the service they do.

      I'm speaking up because capitalizing the game will kill it, now piss off.

      Delete
    10. I said the first episode would be finished in February/March before I knew all of this construction work would happen, and I'll have you know that I worked on the game EVERY day before that, on weekends, on holidays, on freaking christmas.

      I'm not going to keep this arguement going so this will be my last reply, the only thing offending here is you accusing me of trying to squeeze every buck of a franchise I've been releasing for free this whole time.
      I could charge for the final product, heck, I could even make the game exclusive for Patreon pledges alone...but I'm not, because I'm not greedy.
      People who doesn't even pay a cent insult me, complain and expect everything to be handed to them while I work my ass off and has my health suffer for it.

      Geez, some people...

    11. Seems people don't know that there are people who work during the night. Sigh.

    12. You say 3rd world countryes have this law yu sure? Im from macedonia there is no law that determanes from when to when they should work meaning they can work at night even..... so yea your totaly right

      Delete
    13. macedonia is a 4th world country.

    14. Frst learn what that means before you go full retard

    15. Fourth World follows the First World, Second World, and Third World classification of nation-state status; however, unlike the former categories, Fourth World is not spatially bounded, and is usually used to refer to populations whose size and shape does not map onto citizenship in a specific nation-state. It can denote nations without a sovereign state, emphasising the non-recognition and exclusion of ethnically- and religiously-defined peoples from the politico-economic world system

      Delete
    16. K now that you learned the word what part of it makes macedonia forth world.

  5. Actually something I've always been curious about. You're from Sweden, so I'm guessing English isn't your first language.

    So I was wondering how you can do the game, this site, emails, etc in English.
    Do you just have very good English, or do you write everything in your first language and use a translating program?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Translation programs are pretty lousy at converting full sentances into other languages, just try English > Japanese > English and you have nothing of what you initially typed in. xD

      But nah, they teach English to all kids in Sweden, it's one of our main classes, and I think we start learning it already at the age of 9, or if it was 12. :)
      I can't take credit for that though, I failed English in school and instead learned everything from playing video games, chatting and watching movies!

      Delete
    2. That's pretty impressive. I'm terrible at other languages.

      Delete
    3. Haha, same here. Video games teach you english alot better than school :D. Probably cause school is boring most of the time.

      Delete
    4. I'd like to think my English is a lot better now than when I made the first LoQO game too. :)

  10. WOW that is good cosplay. I'm...yes. Just yes.

    And YAY THE DRILLING WILL BE OVER eventually! I'm happy to hear you're looking on the bright side, and that you won't have to put up with this forever. Sad about you getting tired, though. I hope as always that things go well for you, and, as always, look forward to the game!

    1. Thank you, that is much appreciated! And glad to hear you enjoy the current list of cosplayers! :D

    1. Definitely, and her scar she doesn't quite ring evil yet =p.

      Delete
  12. I don't think the cosplayers are worth it if the money could be spent elsewhere. It will be extremely difficult to find real girls who can do the characters justice. Osira and Gabrielle are pretty meh. Young Farah has decent tits, but she's kind of fat. You would have to hire porn stars to get the looks right, and that's probably way too expensive.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I fail to see where she's fat at, and you're the reason why so many females have unrealistic standards for body weight

      Delete
    2. Wow.. I love the cosplayers. Like Chris said, I don't see how you find Farah fat, I really don't.. The girl who is Farah is seriously sexy as hell to me. >.< Gabe, I personally hope you continue to have the cosplay images, it's the reason I changed my pledge from 10$ to 20$!

      Delete
    3. Chris Pearson, go back to your SJW hugbox and fuck yourself. Women who are getting paid to be masturbated to are SUPPOSED to have a higher standard in the looks department.

      Delete
    4. The heck is SJW? You seem to be really hurt over what I said, but you have to remember, the more attractive the woman is, the more expensive they are to hire. And who says they are being paid to masturbate? The previous cosplays only had partial nudity. Also everyone has different tastes, I don't like women to be skin and bones

      Delete
    5. @mike20599 If you mean that she spends the money on the cosplay pic we have seen thus far you don't need to worry since Gabe commented during the Gabrielle cosplay that those cosplays were planned from the start - the 6k stretch goal involved cosplays with a celebrity (meaning the cosplays we're getting so far will be free)

      Delete
    6. In short, the session with these three ladies is already done, it's not like I arrange a new photoshoot for each individual photo. xD

      Delete
  13. Hey gabe even if you don't meet the celebrity cosplay goals, which character did you have in mind for the cosplay, I'm pretty curious

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Besides these three, I also have one for Opala planned.
      But anything beyond that hasn't been decided yet. :)

    2. Bad thing about construction companies is they have no consideration to people that work at night and sleep during the daytime, even worse when they're right outside your window

      Delete
  14. You could try to sleep to ASMR videos on youtube. It's about women touching things like a brush and whispering, it suppose to activate a tingling sensation, I have heard from others that it helps with sleep. Here's an example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GwtmUnecII

    1. Problem is, the drillings will probably over-noise it...I can wear ear-protectors AND ear-plugs underneath, and it still sounds like they're doing the work in my room, when they're in reality maybe on two floors away. xD

  15. Are any of the illustrations in the game going to be drawn by you? :)

    1. Awh :(

      Any particular reason?
      I know for a fact that quality isn't an issue!

      Delete
    2. My guess is that she's somewhat busy with making the game, trying her best to get some sleep and last but not least, keeping her sanity.

      Delete
    3. Well making art takes a long time too, and it's really difficult to flip between the two, that is why most people are only considered talented at one thing. x3

  16. Hey Gabe i got an idea for the last episode of LoQO: Origins;
    You could do a poll in which you ask for one of the party characters from Part 2 to be cosplayed by a fitting cosplayer :3 (doesn't have to be too exact) since it was a big dick-tease to have the scene with Milana in LoQO2 which was the only yuri-scene thus far and also the only scene which involved a party-member in it...

    Also I noticed that the cosplayer who takes Gabrielle's role is ironically the most dark-skinned one out of the three xD (since she was supposed to be the fair-skinned one)
    Also will there be a continuation to LoQO2 or will LoQO: Origins take up the plot of the second part eventually ? (I know I asked this question waaaaayy back then but I am too busy to browse through every single blog-entry x3)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LoQO: Origin takes place one year after LoQOII, so it is a sequel...while also telling the story of Farah's origin. x3
      Don't give it too much thought until you've played the game, or it'll probably just end up confusing you more than it should!

      Delete
  17. Who are these cosplayers. I must find more of these lovely ladies.

    1. They are brand new models, they haven't done anything else previously. :)

  18. Gabe Thanks for the new Beta! It was nice to play LoQO again! I just have one question (I don't really think this is a spoiler but since it's beta related I'll throw it out there, spoiler).

    When using the orb of restoration I notice that the side quests do not reset. And I was wondering if it would be possible to have the side quests reset too because they are actually pretty fun to play through.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. speaking of sidequests, i am doing the hunting one and i cannot for the life of me capture one of the critters in rivet hills (big screen) is there some kind of reason for this because the only one i can think of is that i might have captured it in a previous run.

      Delete
    2. Captured animals doesn't respawn, and some critters require higher hunting gear to be caught. :)

      As for Omegalock, it might very well be possible to reset side-quests, but they would still be listed as completed in the quest log.

      Delete
    3. ......I'm Okay With That!!! :D

      You just did really well with those side quests they are hilarious. I'm fine with them still being completed and not getting a reward, the dialogue is worth it!

      Delete
    4. Hehe, I'll look for a solution then. ^^

      Delete
    5. I always like the side quests a lot, especially the alchemist one in the 2nd game, and the liar woman in the beta is a really funny one too

      Delete
    6. Just needed another hunting tool but i still find it pretty odd that i would need that tool in order to hunt one of the wood squirrels (not the snare trap)

      Delete
  19. Sorry if this was already answered in your past blogs, is LoQO: Origins going to be roughly the same size of the second game or longer?
