Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

"...I hope this isn't Chris's update."
Support production of the LoQO games at - Patreon
And/Or follow me on - Twitter

Sooo close to finish the new, upcoming locations...!
It was far more work than I anticipated but I can say for certain now that they'll indeed be done before the end of the month, so a new beta where you can explore all of these locations will be released before July. :)
It won't add any more story, but after you finish the High Lord Gathering, the River Checkpoint will open up and you'll be allowed to reach the next region, nonetheless.

In other news, yesterday I signed a contract with a guild of composers to have original music made for the game, this means all the songs currently used in LoQO:O will be replaced with tracks you've never heard anywhere else before and give the world a far more unique touch.

With the size of the game, Legend of Queen Opala: Origin OST will have at least 30 songs. x3

And with that short update, I'll of course see you again next week!

  1. Resident evil knowledge confirmed :)

    So about the Loqo ost. What kind of music are u hoping for it to be? Will it be similar stuff that the game had before? Fantasy type music that fits the atmosphere? Or are u thinking of adding different genres like maybe a jazzy song, a pop song, a hip hop like song, rock and roll type song? Just curious what your vision for the ost is.

    1. The original PSone Resident Evil had some seriously corny, stiff but classic lines. xD

      As for the OST, I like to aim high so I want the overall feeling to be orchestral, gothic and fantasy.
      I'm having the composers look at Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 1-2, Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 for influence. :)

    2. Ooooooh!! Interesting! When i first played loqo origins and the first scene is going into the cathedral to meet laquadia, I thought the gothic orchestra theme there was awesome. So I definitely welcome more of that :)

      Delete
    3. Yeah! I mean, the current midi tracks for the game is as close as I can currently get to what I want...so it likely won't be a massive change in theme, just quality. x3

  2. I like the idea of new music, but the one thing I'll miss is when I hear the RPG maker music in other places and I think "Hehe that's the music from when Farah was getting Gangbanged".

    Oh and I forgot to say last week, what will happen to the old Osira model, she was my favourite, maybe she can join me and we can have our own Osira cosplay. :-P

    1. True, but it might have the reverse effect on some other people who are used to the RPG Maker songs...
      "This was the music that played when those characters got married, and Gabe uses it as PORN MUSIC!?"

      Well, she apparently was never all that enthusiastic about being a model, so I just assume she'll carry on with whatever she was doing before being defiled by the LoQO brand. x3

  3. Like a bird in the sky the beta's gonna fly before July!
    As for the music i'm gonna miss the old tunes, they did their job well.

    1. They'll always be a part of LoQO and LoQOII. :)

    2. I guess you could say they had a part to play and they played it well!

  4. So when will Loqo become a triple A game? ;P

    1. Just need someone to remake all three games using the Unreal 4 Engine and we're half-way there! ;D

    2. Man, can't wait to see the mo cap of Lyra getting rammed by the horse in the stable ;3

    3. And the mo cap on the horse dicks ^^

  5. Completely new music is a good idea. I will miss some of the original tracks, though.

    Got a question, Gabe. Are planning to add slavery to the game? I mean, specifically, the ability:
    1) ...to train your female companions and then selling them into slavery or handing them over for "rent"?
    2) ...to buy your own slaves?
    3) ...to capture random female characters and turn them into slaves?
    4) ...to use your slaves as servants, castle guards or additional companions, besides of having sex with them?

    Thanks.

    1. Actaully, I'd like to weigh in and say that I'd love the option for the hero to have sex with female monsters. Or have it like the Game Over scenes in LOQO II, why should the girls have all the monster loving fun :-P

      Delete
    2. Completely agree Cian. Monster girls be awesome!

      Delete
    3. Well Layla and Kristallia are Monster girls so pretty sure that's gonna happen. And Mhu'Tiki and Ra'Tiki maybe Naz'Raala to so technically we already got it.

      Delete
    4. It all comes down to time and cost, I have a big budget but I can't afford everything and I'm already hard pressed on time. x3

      But never say never!

      Delete
    5. Well if it does happen that's cool Gabe!

      But Beliar, Layla is a furry and why ra' tiki and mhu' tiki and kristalia are technically monster girls (and catgirls for life) they are more tamed. What we need is some lamias, harpies, slimes, centaurs, etc. basically everything from monster girl encyclopedia XD

      Delete
    6. Thank you for your answer, Gabe.

    7. Furry are anthropomorphic animals, Monster girls are anthropomorphic animals what i'm saying is there all furrys.

      Delete
    8. furrys are anthropomorphic animals, not monster girls. Monster girls are sexier female versions of actual monsters from ancient myths and folklore. You'll find lamia, harpies, centaurs, and satyrs in Greek mythology. Nekomata (catgirls) and other yokai from Japanese folklore. Layla is not a monster. And gabe's catgirls are more on the furry side since they actually have more cat body parts compared to the usual depiction of Nekomata which is a human girl with cat ears, eyes, and tail.

      Delete
    9. I really doesn't matter what region or time period there from, all of them have a defining characteristic in common, the combination of human characteristics and animal characteristics, whether they lean more towards the animal side or the human side is irrelevant, i said "there all furrys" ass a joke but besides that i was saying there part of the same family/the same idea.

      Delete
    10. Oh there's no hard feelings. I'm not mad, just passionate. But monster girls are simply not furrys. sometimes one can be both but not usually. A lamia for instance, is not a furry. A succubus is not a furry. A demon, vampire, werewolf, zombie, gnome, golem, ghost, mummy, dwarf, ogre, Oni, kyuubi, dragons, elves, are not furrys. They are monsters/creatures/beings, usually from myths and folklore. A furry is an animal, that acts and looks similar to a human. Sonic the hedgehog would be a furry, my little pony would be furrys.

      Delete
    11. Ok, ya some of the things you enumerated are not furry, gnome, dwarf, elves are human fantasy races and never really heard of them considered being monsters, ghost, mummy, zombie are part of the undead family, golem, gargoyles are part of the animated construct family, oni is basically a demon, ogre. Ok ill give you that those are considered monsters and are not furry BUT let's get the easy one out of the way werewolf are definitely definitely furry, what is a werewolf man + wolf what is a furry man + whatever animal you choose so centaurs, minotaurs, harpys, selkies, sphinx, lamia can be considered furry because they adhere to the idea man + animal. Now dragons are not furry but they can be furry.

      Delete
    12. On a philosophical level Beliar, you are completely right. However, to the people who are very much into Furries, there is a fairly narrow definition of what qualifies. Likewise, those who are into Monster Girls specifically are pretty adamant about what the difference is between them even when the line is may be fuzzy (sorry, couldn't resist). To them, this is more than just a philosophical debate. Typically, those who are into just Furries are interested in the idea of adding animal traits into humanity and those into just Monster Girls are interested in the idea of adding humanity into wild beings. Then there are people like me who love them both.

      Delete
    13. What Leethar said. If your not that into it, you wouldn't really tell the difference. A good way to tell, is that a furry is in essence an animal. So if you take a horse that can stand up, talk and act like human, that is a furry. They may have some human parts added to them like human hair or human like boobs and stuff. They body may be changed so that it is more human shaped (with hips found on a woman or an upper body shaped like a man. But they still have "fur" all over. Then that's a furry. Taking an animal that is scientifically proven to exist and make it seem more human. Monster girls are different. They are things found in fantasy. They used to be monsters meant to terrify and said to kill or eat humans. However through some miracle, they were all turned into sexy, female versions of themselves that are usually non hostile to humans. They don't have to be monsters, they can be creatures, or beings. Like elves are beings, centaurs are magical creatures. You can say that monster girls are sexy female versions of things with some kind of innate magical ability and originate from fantasy.

      In the end, just because it had fur, does not make it a furry. A centaur has fur, but a centaur is a magical creature with a human upper body. If it way completely a normal horse but with human-like characteristics (even if those characteristics are exaggerated), it's a furry. A were wolf has fur, but a were wolf was originally a human who was cursed to turn into a wolf like monster. If you make it a female and make not only her human form, but her were wolf form sexy, possibly even take away fur and other wolf like features to further accomplish this, then it's a monster girl. If it was a normal wolf with human-like characteristics, then it's a furry.

      If you explore that, you can get a better idea of what I'm talking about when I mean monster girls.

      There's also this manga that's about monster girls.

    14. "They don't have to be monsters" Monster girls don't have to be Monster makes sense.
      The point i'm making is that the idea behind certain mythological creatures and furrys is one and the same, it is irrelevant how the human imagination chooses to represent them on paper.
      Between Monster girls, furrys and certain mythological creatures there is a lot of overlap more so then there isn't and that's because the foundation the basic idea behind them, is one and the same.

      And ya Leethar you're on the ball i'm thinking about this more from a philosophical standpoint not so much a categorization standpoint.
      But i still stand by may point, there's a lot of overlap between them so much so that some of them are interchangeable.

      Delete
    15. And I still say, while some overlap, they aren't really interchangeable. Let me put it this way. What if Gabe made a sexy game. But in the game, each sex scene was in the missionary position. You like the sex scenes, but you want some more variety for u and others who like other positions. You ask Gabe to add doggy style. But someone tells you there is already sex in the game. Missionary and doggystyle are both sex positions. So what's the point? It's all the same right?
      That's what's going on here between furrys and monster girls. They are just not the same thing. What if a girl was only going to give you blow jobs? And you ask for vaginal sex. She says why? The end goal is that you get off at the end anyway. It's all sex, it's all the same. So what's the difference?

      Delete
    16. You over exaggerate with the analogy a more accurate one would be, a girl was only going to give you blow jobs? And you ask for Deep-throating etc. Or an even more accurate analogy would be you are having sex, but you don't really like it that much because she doesn't have the right kind of makeup.
      And secondly what i said to you in relation to the game is that we already have monster girls a statement that you acknowledged "ra' tiki and mhu' tiki and kristalia are technically monster girls (and catgirls for life)" and after that we just went in to a tangent of what classifies a furry, monster girls etc.

      Delete
    17. Then we need to get back to the point that we need wild monstergirls. While ra and mhu 'tiki and krystalia are technically monstergirls, in the loqo world they are seen more as anthros. we need more variety and more strictly monster girl stuff. Like possibly enemies and if u are defeated we get a game over screen with the protagonist getting violated by monster girls instead of the other way around.

      Delete
    18. Ok then, that's a suggestion for the game.

    20. ......u realize that you agreeing with that makes our whole debate pointless? Cause that suggestion was what Cian Browne said originally to which I agreed with. We went into some kind of wired circle lol

      Delete
    21. I wasn't agreeing i was ending it, a simple acknowledgement that environs can suggest whatever they feel is worthwhile for the game, what happens afterwards is not in our hands.
      As for the monster girls suggestion in my mind i have to major things that bug me with it:
      1. There gonna be nameless, characterless, mobs, and scenes like that would be meaningless to me personally.
      2. Having a victory and defeat scenes for multiple mobs would inevitably take quite a bit away from the main girls scenes.

      Delete
    22. 1. Girls in loqo have all been fucked by nameless, characterless, mobs. The reverse is no different. And just because it's meaningless shouldny be a con especially when it doesn't hinder you.
      2. I'm not suggesting a victory scene for every mob, just a few scenes with monster girl that possibly fit in the story. And there doesn't have to be multiple defeat scenes for multiple mobs. And even if there were, that would not take away from the girls. Cause a) it would only happen when the enemies were girls. And b) it's a defeat scene. The only way to get it would be to lose, and that wouldn't really happen to often depending on how u play. Of course u can purposely lose. And if u do, there may be a reward for some people depending on the battle. The main girls get plenty of scenes and action throughout the rest of the game and probably way more in the future

      Delete
    23. Just because there were more in the past doesn't mean that those were particularly enjoyable for me and that doesn't mean that there needs to be more in the future( hey we had a couple of wars in the past lets have some more) and besides that in those past scenes the main focus was on the girl which wasn't nameless, characterless, mobs in the monster girl scenes the main focus is still on the girl which will be a nameless, characterless, mobs.
      And the other on, there's no getting around it, if you dedicate time and resources to monster girls you're gonna take away time and resources that could have been spent on the main girls(there's never enough main girls with the mc , well at lest for me)
      In any case the game has a lot of enjoyable things about it so let's just wait for EP 2.

    24. I still think you're being really close minded about this, especially towards other people's desires and fetishes. It's not like we are demanding this of Gabe. We just throw it out there, and she does what she wants. We just talk about stuff that we think could be cool, our hopes and stuff. Even if it's just a pipe dream. I'm not saying you have to agree, and if u were disagreeing because you think it would actually be detrimental to the game itself and hurt other people's enjoyment then I'd understand. I just don't think it's right to shut us down like that because it doesn't appeal to you even though it wouldn't hinder your enjoyment of the game in any way. Cause everyone wants to see their own fetish represented in some way in the game. And they way you are disagreeing just sounds like you don't want time taken away from your own specific interest. But I may just be reading too deeply into this. Cause I don't think your trying to be like that on purpose. So I'll drop it.

      Delete
    25. Not trying to shut you down man, like you said "We just talk about stuff". And i think its healthy to talk about the pros and cons of the stuff we talk about.
      As for the points i made, yes the first one is based on preference but the second one is not, scenes with the main girls are one of the main pillars of this game and one of the main attractions, so making scenes without them would potentially weaken one of the main pillars.
      So ya in conclusion i'm not trying to be a dick and say you're idea shouldn't be in the game, just expressing what i think to be cons and you obviously are expressing the pros, all in all i think it makes for a healthy conversation.

      Delete
    26. Yeah I took it the wrong way. No hard feelings. I agree about healthy conversation and all. I probably got too passionate about it lol

  7. You were almost an update sandwich.

    But thankfully there's more than one line after all. (ツ)
    I feel old now with such references. (._. )

    Yay new beta of (/•ヮ•)/ オパラ゙女王の伝説
    And original music that's a pleasent surprise for sure.
    I always wondered if an original soundtrack for the game would use the phrygian dominant scale for potential main themes of the three egyptian ladies, to give 'em an "egyptian" vibe.

    It's a link to an explaination of the phrygian dominant scale:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrygian_dominant_scale
    It might be helpful if you, the master of egyptian storytelling, took it with you.

  8. Is it wrong that I can am expecting weird random sexual moans in the background with the music? "Oh yes, use your fingers on that violin, god I love how you finger it."

    ReplyDelete
  9. Interesting as a music that has played these kind of stuff I am curious on who are the composers you got for your game ? Also during your first Opala game what was the first battle song called ? I know its a remix to some game but I can't figure it out I trying to figure it out for a long time now.
