Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

It's Tuesday update time, right? ;D

Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

Resting time is over and I'm slowly getting back into the game!
Mostly tweaks and fixes for now, but also a few ideas I want to have implemented.
Like how location names appear when you first visit a new area will be changed so it'll only happens once, no matter how quickly you exit the initial map, but letting the text carry over between maps and will fade away on its own.

How caves are illuminated after you buy the lantern will also change for the better, and so will the character sprite as he'll even be holding up said lantern during those areas to make it all look and feel nicer!

But sadly that'll be all for now, a short week update. :)

    2. Don't take it the wrong way but this is why I plan on waiting until everything is nearly finished before playing. I prefer to wait and play the whole experience at once.

  3. Looks like you attempt to pour lots of effort into the small atmospheric details this time, I seriously applaud your attention to them.

    Oh by the way, remember when I said adult Farah's relationship is the only one that the Orb of Restoration does not reset? I lied, but I didn't know any better, sorry. (._. )
    Beatrix' does not reset either. I didn't notice earlier because I only found the opportunity to compliment her pretty late.

    Allthough it gives her a nice yandere touch, when she's so feverly leading the search for the guy she's in love with.

    Speaking of her, could anyone be so kind and translate the one line she says in Swedish? I sadly don''t speak the language. (._. )

      I could be missing a double entrende or a refrerence or something.

  4. I would love for names to appear at places you enter sense some times i forget where i am or if i am in the right area. Either that or a map of some kind doesn't need to be hugely detailed but something would be great.

    1. You mean like having the name displayed at all times? :)

    2. Or, what about a subsection of the menu screen? Like instead of 'Steps Taken', which I'm not sure means anything to anyone, replace that with 'Location'.

  5. Really enjoying the game so far. I especially love the abundance of mini games, such as the Farah flashing and Gabrielle drinking scenes. A quick question - as we "progress" in these areas, will the scene change? I think I leveled up Farah so that she could be fondled, but got the same solo flashing image. It would be great to see a hand reaching out and grabbing her to correspond with the decision.

    Either way, keep up the great work! Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us!

    1. The combination would require too many illustrations for a single mini-game, what you suggest for Farah's boob flashing would end up having roughly 81 artworks to cover all variations - instead of the present 9. x3

    2. Oh I see, makes sense. By the way, adding that scene with laquadia in dark thorn prison was surprising. I felt so conflicted about it though because I always try to role play my character as a good guy if I have the chance (especially in these games to get most of the ladies) but laquadia can be so bitchy that "taking action" against her seems almost justified but doing so puts me on the renegade path and a minus 1 in relationship with laquadia which hurts my dream of a harem ending with as many of the girls as possible. But then again, laquadia ends up sort of liking it anyway at the end! And since you're still developing the game I have no idea of the consequence of my actions and if a renegade or minus 1 in relationship here and there has much of an impact in the game. One part of episode 1 of your game has torn me up more so than any other RPG I have ever played in my life! lol

    1. Well you don't really see yourself sleep...but now when I think about it, maybe a mining animation. x3

    2. You don't see yourself sleep, correct. But you see the actual bedroll, no?
      You could try to make it appear more like pink velvet instead of grey lumps, right?

      Now I wanna end of with a luxery tent full with maids and and a nearby stable for Farah to enjoy by the end of the game... (._. )

  14. Had some problems in my last coment :P
    It's normal in H-RPGs, to cut some of the art prices, the makers using generic scenes, with the main female character "doing" with faceless males, changing only her face and little things like clothes. More or less the same of your variation of western/eastern/beast versions. So, why don't you put this in next chapters, maybe only with the main trio of women? You could create a lot of new scenes with NPCs, letting them "take care" of the girls from different ways in exchange of small prizes, depending of their relationship level with the main character to accept. There's already Farah's interactions with the perverts for money, but you can expand these events. Or are you already thinking about something like this?

  15. Has anyone made some steam banners for any of the LOQO games so far? I'm sure many people would be interested in having a nice banner to launch the game from.

  16. This has been bugging me out i don't know if it's a glitch or not but when you are at hollow gorge and when you run along the grave the lighting hits is it a zombie up in the right corner near the cave and if so why can't i battle it i tried so many times can you tell me plus how do you open the door in the ruins to the left of the graves i just can't figure it out is it something your going to do in the next episode by the way the game is excellent beast mode is the bomb wished you put more dialogue with the team in though can't wait for the next one thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Those are obviously just for atmosphere. Also there's not only that single zombie, the whole area is filled with them.

    I love how creative SweGabe got with the limited options the RPG Maker gives her to create a forboding atmosphere.

    1. Then do you know where the Master hen'tai in a barrel is at summer cove i've looked every where for it i even when to a walkthrough to help still didn't find it plus it's my third run through so maybe where's the first master hen'tai

    3. You can check if you have found him there or not with the progression item.
      In any case have you tried going to the Summer Cove at night?

      Delete
    4. ok now where in Oblivion do you found Illumi

      Delete
    5. For Illumi, use a save crystal, and select transport. She is in that area.

      Delete
    6. But I've tried that it still hasn't work is there a time and place you have to do it at or is my game glitched

      Delete
    7. Clarify please, are you saying you still haven't found her in that teleportation room? If you haven't then that is a bug. But if you have found her you need to have enough dimensional shards before you can unlock her scene.

      Delete
    8. do you know how you said you need to go to a save crystal i did that but the option didn't appear do you need to find a shard before you go there then and what do the shards look like

      Delete
    9. Well the save crystals are blue and there is one in almost every major area. There is on at the entrance of collusia, one by city hall of port ronod, one at highland inn, one in brightstone. They should not be hard to find at all. When you do find them and activate them by interacting with them, the first time all you can do is save. Once that happens, interact again and you can either save or transport. Choose transport and it will take you to the crystal sanctuary. Illumi is in the northern most section of it. The shards? They look like black holes. When you walk around everywhere you may see a black, circular hole in the ground with a little aura. They can literally be anywhere so you have to search every part of a location but they will be noticeable. However, there might be a chance that they do not start appearing until you meet Illumi, I am not quite sure.

      Delete
    10. Yep just tried that still didn't work on the tenth time msybe it's glitch or something how did you get it and when

      Delete
    11. Wow... I don't know what to say then. Looks like you need to talk to Gabe and maybe re download and install loqoO because that is not a timed event, that is a feature you should have at any time.

      Delete
    12. Oblivion, you probably did not get the Crystal Fragment from the Traveling Scholar in Port Ronod. He is in the left-most boat at night; you can only get on that boat at night. The Fragment is what allows you to go to the Crystal Sanctum to meet Illumi and teleport elsewhere.

      Another tip, there is a wiki for the games. Just search for it in google. The wiki has been frequently updated and key collectibles are all there.

      Delete
    13. Oh wow! If that is the case then I am sorry I couldn't help you with that oblivion. I have been playing the betas and using orb of restoration so I'm not encountering everything the same way as you guys are with episode 1. Sorry that I wasn't of much help.Thanks Josh for clearing things up

  18. If we're talking about altering the functionality fo the latern, I have a few things to say.

    Firstly, that I love the way it works in caves, and I, for one, wouldn't want that to change.
    Secondly, that it'd want it to have similar effects in basements and sewers.
    Thirdly, this game can be very, very dark, visually speaking, from the always-gloomy capical city to all the stuff you have to do at night and such. It's nightmarish for someone with poor eyesight, like myself. I'm wondering fi one potential solution that would help immensely in my opinion would be to light up the player character in all these dark circumstances. Maybe this effect could be linked to the lantern, maybe to some other item, or maybe just in the game by default. If some players don't like it, thinking it looks odd, or breaks teh feeling of sneaking around at night, maybe it could be toggleable, linked to the 'L' or 'G' button

    I just had to toss that idea out there. It feels, perhaps erroneously, that this game so much harder for me than LoQO II was, because it's so much darker. Anyways, that's my two cents.

  20. If i may, i would like to give a few recommendations for the game because i have to say that the story are ok and the h scenes good too, but i think there are a few things that could be a lot better:

    -About the combat i would like to ask if it would be possible to change the formula about "attack and defence". Every game that you produced has a little problem when we talk about the difficulty of an enemy because it spike a lot. I would recommend to focus it more on stats and less on the weapon/armor, and add something like a "mysterious vendor" which would sell seeds, it will make the game a lot easier for those who desire so (but i think a less focus on the weapon is needed, so that a level up is more usefull)
    -I would say that it could be good if you could add in this game "bad ends" for the main character, not just the companions, i dont think it would be too hard to implement and it would be appreciated.
    -I think that a lot of times you could have written better scenes, im not criticizing but for example when you were in the prison and laquadia? came to make fun of you, i think it would have been better to have a good option like "I still consider us friends". It would have been unexpected for laquadia and it would have make her mad at first, earning a +1 later when she talks with her brother in case you didnt ask for sex at the start. I imagine it something like she making fun of you, you tell her that you still consider her a friend, she gets mad and then leave annoyed.
    -It would become an incredibly good point if you could add one of the following:
    *The companions can interact between them and even end in a relationship, in which case you wont be able to have a romance with that character. It would be something like a flag system and it would have been perfect if it had been implemented in loqo 2 thanks to milana and other characters that existed in the game
    *This game focus too much on the companions, and i would recommend that you create some secondary characters which can end having a relationship with the main character.

    -Another thing which is necesary is better side quests. Even more, it would be good if some would have a minigame, for example when at the start of the game you do the quest of laquadia fan, you could have done a minigame of infiltration and then later you could find a perver in the town who would change the pantie for an illustration, this is just an easy way thought just now. But better side quests are required (or at least better rewards so that even if some are boring we do it even if its just for the reward)

    And well thats all i wanted to say (there are more things but it is A LOT more secondary and i dont want to annoy anyone).

    If i did an analysis it would be something like:
    -Art: 8
    -Playability: 4
    -Sound: 5
    This 3 would be the focus and let me end saying that the game is good, a lot of people enjoy it, and fortunately, it can improve in the future.

    Good day to you all :).

    1. Ok i have some things to say about this: first of the combat and its "difficulty spike", i don't see it, yes in LOQO 2 ep 3 there was a massive difficulty spike but here no. Farahs skills just shuts down every boss and hard enemy. Second and this is what really irked me, the prison scene with laquadia after what you learn about her and what she has done not doing anything is the good option the "I still consider us friends" would have made the the MC look like a complete and utter idiot and made the scene way worse. If you want to be good with Laquadia trying to keep her at neutral was perfect for her character. The scenes wher good, the only thing is like us all i would have liked more of the things i'm in to, more one on one with the Mc cough cough nudge nudge wink wink( Ooo shameless! ). Third "This game focus too much on the companions" that's like saying that dragon age origins focus too much on the companions, the game is more about the party and the banter between them, actually i would say there needs to more. As for the side quests i agree there needs to be more but the only bad one was the find the cat one as for the others they were enjoyable.

      Delete
    2. Just commenting about your answers:

      -About the scene with Laquadia: Sorry but i dont feel the same as you, if the mc said that i would think HE IS A GENIOUS. Why? simple: People who are evil are more accustomed to hate from the one which they betrayed, however if you are kind to them it will make them mad and they will even feel bad about betraying in some cases. Psycollogicaly it is the option which will make more damage (I imagine the scene with Laquadia getting mad, extremely mad because of that, calling the mc a fool and telling him that she never considered him a friend or something like that, in the end leaving mad and even feeling a bit bad)

      -The difficulty spike still exist, and i dont mean by this that you cant actually solve it, of course you can, however when you are happy in the middle in the forest killing whatever you want without problems and then a golem is able to kill my whole party without too much problem, thats when i think it had a spike. The second time i was better prepared of course and did it, but i feel it still exist.

      -And about what i said that the game focus too much on companions i didnt make myself clear and thats my fault of course. Lets give an example with the same game you said:
      In dragon age origins there exist sub-plots and secondary quests which can have an impact in the story, some dont have too much influence, but im remembering for example the knight you could kill in Ferelden and in the case you dont kill him but talk to him he will arrive when you confront Loghain. Thats what i mean, characters in secondary quest which may change even if its a little thing on the main quests.

      I have to say that i like the game a lot, but it doesnt mean that it couldnt be even better and thats the best thing about Gabe.

      And one more thing, i know that laquadia is made so that people only like her boobs XD, however my imagination gave me various interpretations of her character and why she is like that. But yeah perhaps it was too much that i talked about how i think that a scene could be better.

      Have a nice day :) and thanks for answering me.

      Delete
    3. Ya on the Laquadia thing let's agree to disagree, you are relying on the fact that Laquadia has remorse over the things she had done but the fact that it is said that she frequently comes to glot over her victims suggests heavily that she doesn't have any kind of remorse.
      Ok the "difficulty spike" again and i got to say you are really not making a good case for it. You're comparing trash mobs to a boss......a boss that you yourself admit that you beat in your second try, thats good. It's a boss not a trash mob of course there's going to be a power different there and if you notice what attack there are using you can shut them down completely.
      As for the side quests tying into the main plot there is the one with the black dame, so that's something, but i don't think all of them should be like that some of them should tell their own little stories to show that the world keeps moving even without the MC. In any case it was nice talking a little about the game.

      Delete
    4. Perhaps i think that there exists a difficulty spike because i havent played too much rpg maker games... i suppose that may be so.

      And about the black dame yeah its something, even so i think we need at least a few more. But well perhaps in this point im going too much into the future, who knows what gabe will show us in part 2.

      Lastly about Laquadia, even if she is totally evil with zero remorse, if she goes to have fun of someone and not only the objetive isnt mad, but he still says that he is her friend, she will leave mad yes or yes, obviously people like her tend to enjoy how other people curse her or remain silent, so i think that would be okay. But well, if we disagree then we have to say that "we agree to disagree" its obvious that not everyone will have the same point of view and this is one of the things that you like/understand... or not XD.

      Thanks for the reply Beliar.

    1. 1) Yup!
      2) The game only gives back as many as you need to trigger the reward, this is done on purpose and won't be a problem.
