Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

No shortage of Tuesday updates!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

I'm sorry to say this will be one of those times where I don't have too much worthwhile progress to report, other than the next beta becoming available this week! :D
So I've mostly worked on preparing for said beta, finishing a few small story related events and packing Whitehaven with people/content so that area is completely finished and available for exploration when you boot it up the next time.

You'll also be able to progress the story a bit more too, not much, but enough to close the rather lengthy "Brightstone arc" and move onto the next sequence of the game...which of course, is the High Lord Gathering and the introduction of Opala herself!

While it doesn't have anything to do with the next beta, it might be worth mentioning that after the High Lord Gathering part of the game is done, those ten new locations and a new portion of the worldmap I've mentioned before will finally open up...but also the build-your-mansion section of the series as well, which I've already stated will be a 'effing castle this time. ;D

And with that, I'll see you next week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Black Dame

Week after week, it's the Tuesday update!

This isn't a new character per say, since she is in LoQO: Origin - Episode I and has been in it since some of the earliest betas.
But she did had a default, place-holder graphic since I wasn't too sure where to go with the character, but now I've decided and her design has been finalized.

As I mentioned in an earlier blog update, she'll be making an appearance very soon in the story, which could be your first introduction to her or not, depending on if you completed the first available sidequest called "Introduction".
Spoiler - She can give you the Lockpick Set.

In terms of game development, I've spent most of this week working on the port of Whitehaven and making more trading cards.

I've finished nearly seven of them since last week, three being with the helmet wearing Naz'Raala and four with Kristallia the Crystal Fairy!

Aaaand...that's about that! I'll see you as always, next Tuesday! :D

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Kristallia

It's a me, Tuesday update!

So Offbeatr has finally died...
But I managed to warn people in time and has spent the majority of last week doing nothing by replying on mails for hours, who knew processing 400+ people across a few days would be so much work!

Well, at least no one can accuse me for not trying to solve things screwed up by the website, I'd like to think I handled things as best as I could, given the situation. :)
But enough bitching, let's instead get straight to the...erm, kitching?

Noble Plains, the region Brightstone is located at, is getting a new location along the western shores named Whitehaven, it'll be a small port connecting the area by sea with Port Ronod.
So that's where I've spent most of my game developing time this week, but also preparing for Black Dame to make another appearance, along with giving her a new look so she fits all the other female characters, as she've been using a random place holder design until now.

And let's end this week on a high note by sharing Kristallia's battlepose, the tiny and mischievous crystal fairy from the Northern Continent you'll be encountering on your journey! :D

Everybody sing along, Tuesday update schlong!
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

The monthly question this time was who you're most looking forward to possibly meet in LoQO: Origin - Episode II, with 2313 votes gathered!

Won by 40%, being 930 of the votes.
Second, 23% with 536 of the votes.
Third, 14% with 343 of the votes.
Fourth, 6% with 152 of the votes.
Fifth, 6% with 142 of the votes. 
Sixth,4% with 113 of the votes. 
Last with 4%, being 97 of the votes.

No competition, Osira is the clear winner for this one!

Let's begin with addressing and getting the Offbeatr situation out of the way.
Currently, I ask of everyone who pledged on the site for the higher tiers to make a copy of their receipt and send them to my mail in exchange for instantly getting your rewards sent right back to you! Or if you can access your Offbeatr profile page where it says you have donated x amount to my project, a screenshot of that should work too! :D
(Only for those who pledged for the $50 reward or higher tiers)

Update: Offbeatr just announced they'll close down this Friday.
Since I have absolutely no way of seeing who donated what, pledgers need to mail me as soon as possible and certainly before Friday the 5th! 

How kind of them to give us a three day notice... >.>;

That being said and left behind us, I should be able to release another beta this month on Patreon!
Over this week I've been working on tweaking a few system codes in the game, such as fixing the blacksmithing/forging and how it displayed changed/improved statistics in a flawed way which should no longer be an issue now!
And I'm also changing the currency in the game, from the default/boring "Gold" to "Krown".
It'll help everything feel a bit more original and never confuse money with the crafting resource.
Other than that, more story has been added and maskless Gabrielle has been revealed... ;3

Anyway, I'll see you next week with some graphics to come again with the text!
