Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Monthly Poll Results

"Tuesday update is coming..."
Support me and production of the LoQO games at - Patreon

The monthly question this time was how you'd feel like having a voiced male protagonist in LoQO: Origin, with around 6600 votes gathered!
(Sorry, but I screwed up the stats and had to recreate them from memory. D;)

I'm all for it
Won by 34%.
Only if it can be turned off
Came second with 25%.
Do not want
Scored third with 25%.
I don't mind
Came in last by 16%.

So overall, it was a pretty even poll!

Now for the game development, the latest beta of LoQO: Origin - Episode II was released just the other day after I had finalized the harbor of Whitehaven.
I've also been making some changes behind the curtains that probably isn't even noticable but it simplified how Explorer titles specifically are displayed in Progression where you can check completion status for each individual location in the game.

With the new system, I can add even more unlockable illustrations and combinations of it at each location, while the old system pretty much restricted me to only use three variations at max.
For example, I could only list three of Ruby Chest, Master'Hentai, Legendary Monster or Lost Illustration at any given time, and having more of the same made the coding very long, clustered and complicated...BUT, with the new system, it'll be a lot easier, smoother and I can add more variations too like having Paintings listed as well and such. :)

On a side note, another Patreon/Crowdfunded H-game has recently been completed.
So if you want to branch out and give it a try, go right ahead and get it here - Overwhored 

And like a broken record, I'll see you again next week!

  1. I was watching the poll before it ended, but someone was cheating big time. It looks like they were using a script that continually votes for their choice until it is 100+ votes ahead of the second highest one. Here's an animated GIF I made that shows the cheating in progress. The winner gains 30 votes in the span of 20 minutes.

    2. Dude i visited the blog quite frequently today and today all the options went up considerably so if you are to be believed that mens that the other options cheated on as well.

      Delete
    3. Maybe, but that only means the winner was the best at cheating.

      Delete
    4. Both times you said there's cheating it was on Tuesday update the day that there's a lot of traffic on the blog the Counter goes way up every time on Tuesday, so i just figured its people are visiting and voting without saying anything you figured its cheating and it could be either or.
      The thing is i find it hard to believe you when it's very apparent that you have a bias and the results don't appeal to you. Both times you specifically targeted "I'm all for it" and failed to mention all the other options going up significantly as well.

      Delete
    5. Do you have screenshots of the other options going up as you claim? I would have to point out you are biased as well, since you previously advocated for male voice acting.

      Delete
    6. No, but you actually taking the time to sit there and look for presumed discrepancies sais alot more about your biased then mine and i voted on "I don't mind" which is the lowes. This is just from me to you, i know what i saw and if you took the time to provide evidence then you sow the other options growing up as well. So from me to you your claim stinks.

      Delete
    7. So let me get this straight. Because I took the time to take screenshots and provide evidence of cheating, I'm the one who is the liar. You must be voting for Hillary Clinton too!

      Delete
    8. No it just shows a slight "obsession" for the lack of a better word. In the end you're screenshot is not compelling, i saw the other options going up as well and that screenshot is very specific in what it wants to show like picking and choosing to suit your argument. I'm not saying you're a liar i'm saying you have no credibility especially when i know for a fact that the other options wer going up as well and you just so happen to emit that, so i don't believe you you're fishi.

      Delete
    9. An hour before the poll closed, I decided to do an experiment. I took screen shots every 5 minutes or so for 20 minutes. During that time period, the first choice went up by 30 votes, and the other choices only went up by 1 or 2. After the 20 minutes, there wasn't much activity so I stopped taking screenshots. This evidence is consistent with that I had seen earlier. Whenever any of the other choices took the lead, the first choice would get a big spike in votes over a short amount of time until it became the leader by 100 votes minimum.

      It's funny that you say the person with evidence has no credibility, and the person with no evidence has all the credibility. I hope you never end up on a jury. As for being obsessed, who is more obsessed? The watcher, or the watcher's watcher?

      Delete
    10. Ok so you cheap on saying that i have no proof but then you go on and claim that there have been multiple spike of 100 vots which of course you saw but you only have this one very convenient screenshot, you should really listen to your own advice if you want to play prosecutor.
      Now as for me all i know is i check the blog in the morning and then in the afternoon i checked it again and 3 of them all individually went up by hundreds and then which is not unheard of and then here you come with it's a conspiracy i tell you. You lack credibility all you have is a screenshot that is not an accurate representation of how the voting went today and that i know for certain i bore witness to it.

      Delete
  2. Cool stuff, nice to hear that you have a little more wiggle room with the new system opens up new possibilities or at the vera list saved you some time.
    But this new......for fuck sakes what are you putting in my head now! D:
    This just became a long wait for EP 2, take kite or Ra'Tiki hell take them both but don't you mess with Gabrielle or Farah.......those were my first thoughts when i sow it.
    But now that i think about it i just don't see any of them being a traitor so maybe someone new???
    Either way i would bash may head over that wall to brake it/Persuade her to switch sides if she is one of the girls i know as of now!

    1. Don't worry, the poll is in no way related to the current party as there are simply not enough characters as it is to start playing out a traitor-among-us-card. x3

    2. Well that's good to hear!
      But hey new party members yay.

      Delete
  3. Hey Gabe, can't wait to play through the latest beta. I've been falling behind for a while and haven't played through the last three cause I accidentally started a new game and have been busy. Glad to see you made some changes to make your work easier but I gotta ask. Do you think by the end of this month you'll be able to add the high lord gathering and the new castle? Maybe a scene or two Layla and Mhu'tiki involving the protagonist? I'm asking because money's getting tight for me right now and I don't think I'll be able to be a continuous patron like I have been for the last few months. I could give $10 dollars every now and then but this may be my last month as a steady patron. I'll still be reading blog posts though so I'll be hoping for the best for you and this awesome series you created!

    1. I can say there won't be a scene between Layla and the protagonist, and I'm almost certain I won' be able to add the castle this month.
      But for Mhu'Tiki and the High Lord Gathering, it's possible, but I don't want to say for certain since I also don't want to rush it.

      Delete
    2. Ok then, just to be sure though, that doesn't mean there won't be a Layla and protagonist scene ever though right?

      Delete
    3. I still stand for what I said about every female having a scene with the protagonist at one point or another...well, at least of the original 12 characters, where Layla was among them. x3

  4. I'm not going to vote on this new poll since my way of dealing with a traitor would be: "Give her a rimjob until she is so overwhelmed by how awesome it is and then joins me".

    Also I was just thinking back to LOQO 1 and 2. In 1, Naacia offerd the hero a "mother/son" incest scene and some gay father stuff. And 2 had the secret male on male art. Will these fetishes be making a return in Origins?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah I'm all for Naacia :D
      The mother/son thing would be a nice idea eventhough that would require more than 5 different mother types (white, dark-skinned human, three monster-girl mums; the first two mother-types in two different art styles makes a total of 7 different kinds of scenes not taking into account that there would be different options like cum outside/inside and different sex types)
      But moreso I would appreciate a Naacia scene (she really deserves one and now don't give that "voice-only" non-sense xD)
      With that bit of advice till next week :)

      Delete
    2. True, but I guess sometimes a white woman can have black kids and vice versa.

      I actually still love the voice only sex, it was fun. All it really needed was a simple animated gif to add visual stimulation. Personally I'd love to see a fan take the audio from those scenes and animate a full movie scene to go with it. Then we can have the Opala tv show :-P

      Delete
    3. "Give her a rimjob until she is so overwhelmed by how awesome it is and then joins me" i say that falls in the category of "Persuade her to switch sides" :P

      Delete
    4. Huh? I don't remember that at all in LoQO 1. Naacia was the succubus in your dreams right?

      Delete
    5. Yeah she was the succubus type person. Black skin, red hair. You would fall asleep and have a dream living a wierdly erotic version of the past, such as the dad being gay and the mom having and affair with the dog. There was one where Farah tried doing it with a bull instead of a horse. Each time you figure out what was wrong and naacia appears and you fight her

      Delete
    6. Oh that's right lol. Completely forgot about those.

      Delete
    7. Actually if I remember right Naccia didn't do any incest thing but playing as his mother said she was screwing the family dog. As well as a well placed insult about his father having such a small dick he HAD to take it up the ass. lol

      Delete
  5. Well my Heroic protagonist would persuade he to change sides.

    My Renegade protagonist however, would lock her in a dungeon....in a very nice looking room (ain't so cruel come on :P) where she will spend the rest of her life. Living out her new purpose as a tight little cumdump ready to be bred at a moment's notice.

    Yep, sounds about right. :P

  8. Nice that you like the new system maybe on the next game later on the future you can push for a new system engine. I can imagine if this is helping you out, I can see the newer ones working well for your favor.

    I am curious Gabriel what can you do with this new system now, more themes, characters and locations ? Do they have any Sci-fi themes ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nah, I meant I improved on the title system...not game system. x3
      And I may have something else up my sleeve, but it's far too early to speak about it now.

      Delete
  9. So far LOQOO seems a bit more story-oriented than the prior two games. It's not just about the monster-banging anyone. Now it's about who's banging, and why, and where those Giga Lardos came from anyway.

    The traitor party member idea is a really good one. Character drama is always fun times. "Release her in a monster nest"? Also fun times.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd like to think Origin is as much story oriented as LoQOII, but it's far better structured this time around and involve far more characters. ^^

  10. A way for Laquadia to be redeemed and join the party, in exchange for becoming a slave, would be fun and sexy as hell. Also, if the characters openly ( or not so openly ) talked about their fetishes...

  12. Half the people voting voted against it.
    That's not a 'pretty even' poll, Gabe.

    It clearly shows the majority of the fanbase don't want it.

    *waits for Beliar*

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well actually, 34 and 25 percent (59%) wanted it with the option to turn it off if they wanted, only 25 percent were fully against it, and the remaining 16 didn't have any strong feeling. If anything it shows that the majority of the fanbase DO want it.

      Delete
    2. Only:
      Adverb.
      'And nothing more besides, solely or exclusively'.

      'Only if it can be turned off' indicates that their approval of it is exclusive with them having to experience it.
      That's a pretty damning and obvious indication of distaste for the concept.

      So, the actual demographics would be
      50% Opposed
      34% In Favor
      16% Give Zero Fucks.

      Delete
    3. Not seeing your logic here. The poll asked if they wanted voice acting. The choices were yes, yes if you have the option to turn it off, no and don't care either way.

      So again we have 34 for yes, 25 for yes again, and only 25 for no. The 16 for don't care also means that they wouldn't mind voice acting if it was there, but arn't bothered by it not being there.

      If you're saying that the people who voted "Yes-but only if it has the option to turn off" meant no, then they would have chosen the "No" vote.

      Delete
    4. I'm just going to creep in here and say I'm one of those guys who voted Yes but only if it can be turned off. Reason being because I don't want the protagonists to be voice acted but Gabe does and so do others and I don't want to be an asshole and potentially deprive them of a good experience of the game.

      Delete
    5. I'm actually disappointed in myself, someone specifically called for me and i was sleeping like a log, for shame me, fore shame!
      But ya i really have nothing to add to this Cian said what needed to be said so shrug i guess.

      Delete
    6. I know where you're coming from, but if it can be turned off what's the problem?

      Delete
    7. Well Beliar, you have a good point, but in a way still that still supports my argument.
      You voted "yes but" because, while you don't want it, you're not AGAINST it. You still want it included in the game, rather than not wanting it in the game at all. I mean people who voted "no" don't want it in the game at all, not even as an option.

      But let's say the poll was just "include" or "not include", regardless of weather or not you use it, "include" is still the majority, showing that the majority does want it included.

      Delete
    8. Sorry, I mean to say Omegalock, not Beliar.

      Delete
    9. Lol yeah I wasn't really trying to argue anything, I was just adding my perspective. I guess you are right about not wanting it but at the same time not against it.

      Delete
    10. Yap, three out of the four options are positive towards VA in some way or another.

      Delete
    11. You guys are terrible at math. As my screenshot shows, 29% do not want a male VA, and 29% said only if it can be turned off. 29% + 29% = 58%. That is a clear majority of people who do NOT want to hear some guy's voice.

      Delete
    12. O look its my good old buddy old pal 23e41344-d57a-11e5-97c3-cb95f2048da7, i must know what inspired you to create such a name?
      O and i almost forgot to tell you you're terrible at reding, completely ignoring the point and reply to a string of comment that discuss how "only if it can be turned off" is not against VA, something you can already do might i add, then use your uncredible screenshot to pick and choose until everything is in your favor omitting everything to the contrary!

  15. Traitorous party member? It's Osira isn't it? Don't be dumb and throw her in a monster den it just makes her stronger.

    Plot twist: it's Opala the minotaur D was just too strong for her to care about humans anymore. She's secretly a member of Minotaur Inter-species Lovers Front. A radical group desiring the extinction of mankind via blue balls.

    Plot twist 2; Twist Harder: Illumi is the daughter between you and Young Farah, from the future sent back to the past. Illumi started all this with Osira as a means of stopping dick swinging protagonists messing with the space time continuum. And to create...a New World Order. ILLUMInati confirmed.

Just you and the Minotaur Inter-species/interracial secret group.....just please for the love of everything just NO there's enough of that garbage in other places in fact it's literally everywhere in porn now "worship my bla bla bla" and now you're addicted to bla bla bla there literally start talking like an annoying ass religion.

  19. Hi SweGabe,

    (1)I'm a linux user and I've made a "personal" patch to make LoQO (I, II & Origin) working without RPG Maker XP by using the mkxp project. The games are working fine with it. Would you like I release this patch ? If yes, I will improve it and send it to you.

    (2)I've also checked a way to reduce games sizes and find the pictures are NOT optimized. There's a way to reduce combined file size of at least ~400MB with optipng and jpegtran (Optimized: means reducing size without losing quality aka lossless). I've made a linux script that work well and I have a "start" of windows script.

    Also, great work. Thank you.
