Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Update

I'm afraid I got nothing...but good news! :D
You'd think this holiday season would have me kick back and take it a bit more easy, but nope! Instead, I've been working really hard and even set a new record in my game development!
Normally, a full scene in the game takes about a week to make because it's very mentally exhausting (for some reason, hurr hurr) and it's not always the first draft will work out and need a lot of polish and additional work.

However...this week I've finished not one, not two...not even three, but FOUR SCENES!
Yes, since last update I've finished adding two mini-scenes and two full scenes in the game, that should hopefully make up for no new scenes appearing in the last beta.
There is no other explanation for this other than me having a mad dash of luck and all the gears in my head synching up perfectly, apparently! Not that I complain, of course, but it will be very hard to top it or keep the superb groove going for too long. xD

So that is four scenes, four different girls
Why, one of them might even include a "Lewd Latcher"...hmm! ;3
I promise to have something visual to share in the next update, so until then, Happy New Year!

  1. Well someone turned on avatar mode to master all four scenes!
    It's gonna be a real critical hit next for sure!

    1. It took me like, five minutes to figure out that was a reference to the Last Airbender series. (._. )

      Seems a bit left field for a blog about an adult RPG. Then again, both are fantasy-styled after all.

      But isn't avatar mode activated by a severe threat to ensure self-preservation? Maybe SweGabe just got seven chaos emeralds for christmas instead?

    2. Maybe I just cheated and activated real life God Mode? ;P

      Delete
    3. Wouldn't real life God Mode completely reshape all history by extending your existence (not nesicarily physical, just as a force of influence) back to the beginning of time itself?

      *looks up those Stephen Hawking books on Amazon*

    4. Ahhh if only i bet that would have come especially useful for you when the drilling happen. :P

  2. Heh, I was actually wondering if we'll ever find out what a lewd latcher looks like ever since they were mentioned post-escape from Port Ronod. From it being maritime and latching on to stuff I expected something clam like but maybe it'll be more catfish-like. Or maybe even tentacle-y?

    Wow, on four more scenes! Hope you still got some time to kick back though.

    Does this mean the next beta will be released in record time as well? (^-^)

    Sorry, I'm being a very greedy boy right now and should get spanked. (._. )

    1. Nope, it'll just mean the next beta has a pretty generous dose of new content as well. :P
      And the Lewd Latcher have made a guest appearance in some trading cards, although I'm not sure if any of those are specifically available yet in-game...

      Delete
    2. That's great news either way. (^-^)d

      I didn't catch anything maritime in the 46 cards available yet... So they are made available at radnom instead of being picked by you?

      While we're on the subject of the cards/art gallery though, Two questions:

      1. Since zooming in also displays the dialogue in the art, do you think it would be possible to use a different mangnfying glass icon for those artworks that contain dialogue? While most of the cards contain some, the regular gallery has them far and few in between, like the Layle/Eclipse pick.

      2. Will we ever meet the recuring stallion clique from the arts in-game? They seem like pleasent fellows to be around.

      Delete
    3. Will Castle warengard be finished in the next Beta or will we have to wait til full episode release? Not complaining of course the last Beta was awesome. Just wondering as I am loving going through it and would like to finish it if only to see how you portrayed they muscle bound bad bad babe. :D'

      Delete
    4. Jaht, hmm...it's possible I could attach like a text bubble graphic on the opposit side of the magnifying glass to clearify text possibility.
      But no, the trading cards aren't random, although it's possible to both win and lose them. (But never permanently)

      Joe, yeah I'll try to finish that part of the game too before the next beta is released. :)

    5. Thanks for taking it into consideration. (^-^)d

    6. NICE! That makes my year thanks Gabe. :)

  3. Happy Holidays Gabe, i'll be paying the pantreon today, it may not be the best gift but it'll be 10 more sweet dolars to your bank account, btw i've always thought of this, do you have a boyfriend?

    1. Thank you! And no comment, I think at this point people might just get worried if I date with concerns it'd affect game production... xD

      Delete
    2. Due to the identical names, I always thought Gabrielle has shades of a self-insert character for SweGabe. That means if she actually has a romantic parner, Kythe is obviously the avatar for said person. The infallible path of logic therefore dictates that Swegabe... is a dog! \(._. )

      Delete
    3. That's really stupid and not funny.

      Delete
    4. Sorry... (._. )
      I guess our senses of humor are not compatible but I did not mean offense to anyone with this.

  4. Makes me wish i wasn't to cheap and broke to give money

  5. Well guess you'll be getting a special Patreon Pledge Increase Donation from me for the New Year.

    I mean, you really should take a break and have a nice relaxing escape from work, but hey if you want to work hard, you earn the value of your efforts.

    1. Wohoo!

      I don't really think much of seasons, if I get in a really good work mood, I'll let nothing stand in my way. >3

  6. Hey Gabe, do you think we will get a Holiday themed loqo pic from sparrow?

  8. Are we going to get our fight with the Steel Demoness and see her brea-battle in the next update?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Possibly, once I've polished up these four scenes, I'm most likely going back to finish up the Warrengard arc and continue the story.

      Delete
    2. well now I have my first new years resolution, "fight the Steel Demoness for grand breas-umm...-battle, yes, grand battle"

  9. Couple of quick questions? How many Illumi scenes are currently in the game? and If theres more than one, is it still possible to trigger the second if I use the Orb of Restoration?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's just one scene but it has two different events. To trigger the second CG you have to be at least two points into the renegade path and then play around with the choices you have during that scene.
      Yes, this is redoable with the Orb of Restoraton, just make sure you choose at least two renegade choices and no heroic ones before triggering the scene.

      Delete
    2. Demand a better reward from Laquadia at the start then later on agree with Crayden in the Caimridge attack would be the quickest way to set yourself up for the renegade path of that scene.

      Delete
    3. thanks for the replies jaht/Beliar. I've gotten that path, i was just making sure another scene wasn't added for grabbing all the shards.

      Another question for anyone with the latest beta: Where does the Golden Beetelblade spawn. I' not getting a golden enemy (I have that item, so i should) to signify which enemy has the beetleblade, and Ive scoured every available inch of the map, inculding the plot path. Might be a bug.

      Delete
    4. A lot of areas have a chance of spawning that mob like Fellhorn Ruin, Windy Canyon and Grassland Road etc. If you have the item that tells you if there's a Golden Beetelblade in the area it's just a mater of just enter and exit these areas until you get lucky.

      Delete
    5. problem being, the Beetleblade doesn't seem to spawn in Fiera Falls (which i'm now noticing i forgot to mention in my original question) despite the fact that i have the item that tells me if they spawned AND the one that tints that specific enemy gold on the map

      Delete
    6. From what i know not all regions have a Beetleblade so probably Fiera Falls is one of those. So like i said Fellhorn Ruin, Windy Canyon and Grassland Road are your best bet.

      Delete
    7. I usually find about 2-3 with no effort per full play through. If you want more than that you do need to farm them which means going between 2 or 3 areas they spawn kill a few enemies(to make it worth your time) and if it didn't spawn on entry then proceed to the next place. I personally used Fellhorn, windy canyon and Rivulet hills. If you desperate you can simply edit your save to add them but note it won't work with other items of the type such as ruby coins. You can add ruby coins but they won't work. I won't tell you how to do all this but the info is on the wiki. I still recommend you play the game legit though

      Delete
    8. Way would you go from place to place if you're farming it? Just exit the area and re-enter it.

      Delete
    9. You could do that yest but a little change in scenery can make farming a little easier for some people.

      Delete
  10. nice love the update Gabe I cant wait to see the finished work. Take your time, also did you like the elf photo ? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't know if it's in previous betas or not or if it's a bug but after talking to a guard at night in whitehaven the guard walks backwards like a moonwalk. Is that a bug or a Michael Jackson reference? Either way it made me chuckle lol

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is it normal for the saves to be unusable after updates, or is the a trick to copying the save files from one to the other? cuz i get an error and have to start from scratch every time the game updates

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Gabe, question, it just got paid from my Credit card, do i have to tell you or it'll eventually get emailed to me?


    Thanks in advance, i hope you had great holidays.
