And here she is at last!
The kuudere reporter who'll do anything to get the scoop and won't hesitate to follow the protagonist and his party to the end of the world in order to secure inteviews no one else would be able to accomplish!

She is very unlikely going to be a part of episode 3.
However, Makoto will eventually be seamlessly worked into the story as a side-character who'll hound the protagonist for exclusive stories ever since learning he is the first person to break out of Darkthorn Keep.

As for the game production itself, I've been replacing the graphics for quest-givers to make them easier to spot, and implementing visual cues to make trading card spots/holders easier to spot as well.
(With the appropriate item)

Duchess Lynevere has also been added to the game and completely replaced Mistress Gloria who was one of the guests at the High Lord Gathering, along with belonging to the wealthiest family in the Empire and also funding the dig site in Kahr, with a sample of her emoticon set being presented next week!

And with that, I'll chill for the rest of my birthday and see you again next week as always!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Camera Preview

No, this actually isn't a late April Fool's Joke!
(I didn't get to finalize the reporter's color palette, so I updated the previous blog post with a slight tweak and will be making this camera thingie the feature of the week)

Yes! As I was adding the second new Traveling Scholar challenge and scheming what kind of reward he should give, I came up with the idea of adding a form of camera that can be turned on/off just like sprinting and will slightly change interractions with NPC's.
Right now, it serves nothing more than a little extra fun and interractive way to finish certain side-quests related to photographing, yet leaves a lot of room for potential growth later on.
It's also possible the camera view could be customized with different unlockable "shells", like the Laquadia one displayed in the screenshot preview below.
Oh, and the sample is by no mean final, merely how it looks right this moment.

In other news, two additional side-quests have been added, with one indeed related to the camera and with Mayor Willheed getting a original design with his old one replaced.

But next week, the reporter should be good to go!
And next Tuesday also happens to be my birthday, it's almost an annual thing!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Duchess Lynevere

Early Tuesday update for the WOOT!

I know, but hear me out! Before you groan over yet another pair of huge boobies squishing up against your computer screen, let me calm you down with pointing out next week's reveal will be a girl with a chest only rivaled by Ra'Tiki in terms of tiniest titties to balance things out!

With that out of the way, let me introduce you to the visibly eldest woman out of the entire cast, the self-important and vain Duchess Lynevere.
She'll have a few side-quests related to her and be the owner of an estate, previously known as Duke's Tavern before the name change.
Lynevere belong to one of the richest families in the Beldorian Empire, and I may alter the story slightly to have her replace the current NPC who attended the High Lord Gathering and is funding the digsite at Kahr.

In terms of what I have done this week, I've been working more on side-quests and expanded upon one of them to include some fanservice and more Gabrielle shenanigans, although no new CG Scenes as it's too late now in production to add additional ones for episode 3.
(But there will of course be plenty more later on!)

However, the International Edition artist have completed another full CG Scene too!

So with that, stay tuned for next week!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Week 28 / 2019

Tuesday update, coming at ya!

Let me kick off with saying I have two new female characters in the pipeline!
No major characters, but one who'll play a bit of the same role Gabrielle had in LoQOII, as in someone you'll run into here and there across the game, and another who'll be akin to Duchess Velvetta from LoQOII with a few side-quests/optional content related to her.
I'll go into more detail about these characters in the upcoming blog updates as I reveal their personalities and show off previews of their appearances. :3

This week, I've mostly been resuming my work on adding additional side-quests, with a few more added to Odidania and with one of them being related to this Duchess Velvetta-styled noblewoman, who'll also likely be the one to live at the currently named "Duke's Tavern" location, although with a name change and an interior make-over.

And that'll have to do for now, so I'll see you again next Tuesday!

Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Beldorian Huntress

I was going to add a screenshot of Beatrix's set reward animation as a preview this week...
But quite honestly, there isn't a single frame out of it that could be considered wholesome!
So instead, have the battlepose for the perfectly family friendly Beldorian Huntress enemy type! :D

Speaking of that animation, I've been tinkering with it on and off the whole week and it's been more complex than expected to get everything to click.
Making voiced loops with sound effects is a bit tricky, especially when giving the power to proceed to the player as the different SE need to be balanced to not be too repetitive, but it'll be finished shortly!

Other than that, I've also corrected a few tiny bugs, including one regarding the introduction scene with Kristallia in Odidania I stumbled upon by accident while adding a new side-quest.

And that's that for now, so I'll see you guys again next week!
