Gah, these Tuesdays keep coming up! Like, almost once a week!

I'll confess I've at long last forced myself to slow down and chill for realsies this time by taking last week off, but with batteries recharged and the checklist of things to do seemingly infinite, I headed back into development as of yesterday and began with tangling with that beast called Odidania.
All outdoor maps for the city is done, but I still need to make the indoor maps and I'm aiming to have everything done before I release the next beta towards the end of this month. :3

And with that tiny update, I'll hopefully have more results to share as I see you next Tuesday!

  2. I know you're really busy at the moment, but have you given any more thoughts to the "Legend of Queen Opala Tales" mini game idea?
    Small micro games set in one location with maybe 2 scenes and 1 secret scene, for example the idea I pitched about Gabrielle on Rugwarts Ranch in LOQO II. Or something like Farah in the Royal Palace from LOQO I.
    Have you had a chance to play "Family Photo" the mirco RPG maker game by Mythcomplex, that worked basically the same way, one building with two scenes and a few pics in between.

    Again, I know you're super busy with LOQO:O but this is more a suggestion for some quick work when you are maybe between projects or maybe incorporating a one or two of the "Tales" style games into some kind of LOQO Collection when Origins is complete.

    1. Hmm...That's not a bad idea, and very much possible.
      It'd certainly make it feel like I'd produce more than I'd do. xD

    2. Glad you like it, I think would be even easier for you since you already have all the maps like the Royal Palace, Rugwarts Ranch, Gnolls Bar or Osiras Lair. Plus it would be fun to have a change to play as Farah or play as Osira for a change. :-P

    3. I was just thinking. Gabrielle seems to refer to her time with Gnoll and her time in the stables(with those stallions who were like randy teenagers haha) but is there any chance we will get something like flash backs where she relives those in a rather vivid manner?

      Delete
    4. It sounds good with the whole reliving thing, but at the same time, it has a down side, the time they spend on making those flashback scenes would be time they could be spending making new scenes for the characters or potential party members that where left unresolved..

      Like Sunny-Sue Ellen, Kythie, Layla, Naz'Raala(wich since she actually has a name.. makes me more sure se will come in the party later), and of course, can't forget to put a little more of masquerade or maybe..

      Plot twist, unexpected rescue of Laquadia(that could be tired by now of playing the wife dealio)

  4. Time to ask agan, how is the international edition artist doing? If he's doing good then is there a chance we can get a taste of the international edition in the next beta? If he's not doing good, must we unleash the full force of the Loqo fandom upon him?

    1. There is still a way off, since he started so late in development, he had over 20 scenes to catch up with, and he can't do more than one full scene per month since he does all variations himself.
      So that is seven versions of a single illustration, and since there are at least two illustrations per full CG scene, that means he makes 14 artworks per month.

      Delete
    2. That's fine. If he's working on it that's all that matters. I remember the first time we asked you said he was moving slower than he should. But as long as he's doing what he can then can't argue about the pace.

    2. Cuz seriously, if by the time Laquadia is anything of a party member, im in trouble if the gift system is not in place, have done some things im not proud of(who am i kidding)..
