February 15th Update

Success! I finally know where the site is going for the next 6 months (or however long it ends up being).

Thank you to everyone who voted and commented last week. A combination of that and various other personal factors means we have some results I’m happy with.

Leanna : The big Streak

So, I’ll cut to the chase. The first game I’m going to work on is the Leanna streak game. It’s simple, it’s easy(ish) and it’s not too big. It’s based on characters I already have and many scenes I’ve already set up. I’m aiming to make it a members only game as I am feeling compelled to do something for the members section right now.

Production for the game should only be 4 to 6 weeks. In theory, I could do it quicker, but I’ll also be working one a much bigger game alongside it.

Marianna : Speed Demons

Yes, after much deliberation, I’ve decided that this is the most practical way to go. Marianna’s game was the second most popular one pitched last week, so I’m pretty sure this’ll keep everyone happy.

As you can see, I’ve decided to switch her back to the Nascar setting I originally planned. I have lots more ideas for her in this setting compared to Molly, so I’m very confident about it at this point.

I switched to Molly at a while ago thinking that her looked made more sense in this setting, but after some research, I’ve found that Mariannas look is more than appropriate. Feel free to google Danica Patrick or Maryeve Dufault to discover that drivers can still certainly look glamorous.

Over the coming weeks, I’ll be posting many more updates and images for this game.

It will be free, but released to members earlier (probably a month).

Other games

Quite a few interesting results last week, so I’m certainly glad I did the polls like I did.

The final results were (in descending order) :

  • A New Maddison game – 8.8
  • Marianna – 8
  • Crystal Part 3 with new Crystal – 8
  • Molly – 7.7
  • Leanna’s streak game – 7.6
  • Crystal Part 3 with the old Crystal – 6.2

As you can see, there was barely any difference between the middle four games, which was a pleasant surprise for Molly in particular. Whenever there’s been a ‘verses’ poll, she’s always lost, but here it seems that people don’t dislike her, they just always like someone else slightly more. I’m not sure if she’s going to be the secondary woman in Marianna or if she’ll get her own game, but I’m certain to use her somewhere.

Obviously, Maddison came top and I’m sure the posted picture did a lot to sway that. I like the idea of doing a photographer part 3 game featuring her, but I don’t really have enough women for the various photoshoots yet. I like the idea of maybe returning to it after Marianna and Molly have been seen naked elsewhere. The photographer games are always meant to showcase the previous set of characters in one game, so having Leanna, Marianna, Molly, new Crystal and others (Debbie?) all being models in it makes sense.

For Crystal Part 3, I do like the idea of a new Crystal, but I think I’d still like to work on the new version a little more. Hopefully, to integrate more of her old look with the new one.

2018 is looking very fun for me now!

February 8th Update

First of all, Bridgette Part 2 is now available for download in the members section (having previously been online only). there are also some bug fixes if you were having issues.

Thank you for everyone who voted in the polls last week.

Sadly, they weren’t quite as decisive though. Also, as one user correctly pointed out, they weren’t particularly reliable. For instance, a vote for Molly was split up between her solo game and a joint one with Marianna. So, this week, we’re gonna try something similar and use….math!

Each pitch below will have a rating between one and ten. Give the idea a score you like. Later, I will calculate the average score (probably a few times today, then once a day for the rest of the week).

Also, since we’re doing it this way, feel free to make your own pitches in the comments below and I may add them! Since we’re calculating the average rather than total amount of votes, it doesn’t matter when they get added.

EDIT : There were some technical issues with the blog and the first batch of votes were not counted. Please try voting again if you don’t see your earlier vote there.

Pitch 1 – Crystal part 3 with new Crystal

A third entry in the Crystal trilogy. I would be using the new Crystal model show above and rendering in IRAY. The gameplay would be a hybrid between the ‘Maddison style’ game and ‘Betsy style’ game. It will be set over one week when you attempt to rekindle the romance between yourself and Crystal after spending some time apart due to work. Daytimes will be fairly linear, like when you’re at school with Betsy, or at the studio with Leanna. However, evenings will be more like Maddison, where you are free to explore the city together.

Pitch 2 – Crystal Part 3, but with old Crystal

The same game as above, but with the older Crystal model. The advantage of this is that it will probably be done quicker since I’d use Poser (maybe just 2 or 3 of months, as opposed to ‘new Crystal’ and IRAY which could take 5 or 6). It may also be better for continuity. It is also work mentioning that, I would still find a use for ‘new Crystal’ in a different game later, but as a different character.

Pitch 3 – Molly in her own game

I’ve been having trouble generating ideas for this game, but I could persevere if people are enthusiastic enough about it. Molly, as she was introduced in Leanna, is a cop. Here, she goes undercover on the Nascar circuit. Now that you’re working at the news studio, Leanna sends you undercover to investigate. You bump into Molly, recognize each other and team up to expose the corruption there. Since Leanna is fine with you sexually experimenting with other women (especially if she can be invited along one time), naughtiness ensues along the way.

Pitch 4 – Marianna in her own game

This is probably the game I have the most amount of conflicting ideas for currently. I did like the idea of her being some sort of international spy/assassin as I hadn’t done it before. Now I’m not so sure as, a) it may just be a bit too far fetched. This isn’t the Marvel Universe. b) this may be complicated ethically. I mean, she’ll be someone who kills people. I generally aim for a more light hearted tone with my games. There are other options though. I like the idea of you just meeting her at the hotel bar, then you spend the evening together. You could have the freedom to fully explore the hotel floor, kinda like the ‘Maddison format’. There can be a pool, a lingerie fashion show happening, maybe a live band. There’s lots of options.

Pitch 5 – Leanna’s big streak

I know we just had a Leanna game, but this would be a fairly simple one to do as I already have all the characters and scenes ready (some of it’s based on cut content from Leanna’s main game). The pitch is simple : you and Leanna are heading back into the city. Your car breaks down at the city limits. Rather than call for help, you challenge Leanna to streak all the way to her apartment from where you are. Can you make it all the way to the center of the city without getting caught? Obviously, you get up to various naughty things and sex along the way. The advantage of the game is that it’ll be fairly easy and quick to make.

Pitch 6 – A new Maddison game

I posted this image on twitter recently and got a very positive response, so let’s float the pitch. As you can see, she’s rendered in IRAY with new skin shaders, and also has new breast morphs which means her boobs hang, flop and squeeze very realistically now. I’m not too sure what to do storyline-wise though. The only Maddison plan I’ve worked on so far is actually Photographer Part 3. Referencing real world events, Mr. Hughes has now died and left his company in the hands of you and Maddison. You visit the island paradise seen in some games and recruit the characters there as models (Miranda, Zoe etc). Another idea could be a Maddison and Lisette double date. The three of you spend the evening exploring the city together. Kinda like a double date, but it’s just you dating both of them together. If I go with this option, I may have a further round of polls to work out the details.

And that’s all for now. As I said at the start, if you have your own ideas, post them below! If I like them, I’ll add them to this post. It’s probably a good idea to return to this page and refresh a lot over the next few days, just in case there’s any updates.

February 2nd Update

Now that Bridgette Part 2 is released and dsp3000 is getting to work on the third and final part, it’s time for me to go over where I am with my games.

Last time I posted about it, my intention was to focus on making a game centered around Molly. I began this, but I’ve had a lot of trouble putting together the narrative. I have the first 10% and the last 10% of the story sorted and I love what’s there, but everything in the middle isn’t flowing so well. I don’t feel like I have enough worthwhile ideas for the middle 80%. I can fill it up by going, “well, then they can…have a photoshoot”, but I really want to have more original setups I haven’t done before.

One alternative I was considering was maybe merging the Molly and Mariana games together. I mentioned in a previous post that I liked the idea of Mariana being some sort of international spy/thief/assassin – something in that category. Since Molly has already been established as a police officer, they could compliment each other quite well. Somewhere near the start of the game, you have to side with one or the other,- Pick Molly and you spend the game hunting down Mariana with her, pick Marianna and you spend most of the game helping her evade capture. It’s not a fully fleshed out idea yet, but I wanted to float it here and see what the reaction would be.

There is, of course one more possibility those of you following me on twitter may have already noticed – Crystal Part 3. This has been something I’ve been toying with for at least a couple of years now. I think the reason I’ve never followed through is because, although she’s the poster girl for the site and I love her, I’ve already spend a ton of time over the years with Crystal. I did some counting at the start of last year and she is the character with the second highest amount of images on the site (Rachel has the most images, Maddison is third). So, since I’m using IRAY and G3 figures now, I thought I’d try remaking Crystal. Here are the results :

Personally, I love it. I remember doing a poll a while ago with the suggestion of remaking Crystal like this, but most were against it. I suspect however that it’s one of those things where, you’re against the idea initially because it’s different to something you already like, but when you see the results, you completely change your mind.

Getting Crystal Part 3 done while I try and assemble more interesting scenarios for Molly or Marianna sounds like a good idea to me. I actually have the entire Crystal plot worked out (had it for over a year now), so I can just get on with it right now.

So, what does anyone think about any of these? There’s a couple of polls here, though as always it’s even more useful if you can make a comment below.

Also, here’s a reminder of what Molly and Marianna look like for those who don’t regularly follow the blog.

And one more question phrased a bit differently. Which of the ideas do you simply like? Pick as many as you want.

January 26th Update

From dsp3000…

Once again I am very happy to be able to release another game on the VDategames site, and this game is another big one.
“The Academy : A Date with Bridgette : Stage Two” is the second stage of a three part game. This installment adds another 2287 images to the 848 from stage one making a total of 3135 images so far.
The downloadable version of the game will comprise stages one and two together. There have been a few minor modifications to some of the stage one files so it makes sense to release both parts together to ensure consistency.

You can play straight through from stage one to stage two, or you can use your code from stage one and jump straight in at the start of stage two.

The second phase of your evening with Bridgette takes in a choice of locations and encounters. What happens in these scenarios is largely effected by what you did earlier on in your date and what you choose to the time. There are a huge range of variables to discover so the game should be worthy of several playthroughs to find everything. There is also sex, plenty of sex and not just with Bridgette.

Please avoid posting up any spoilers on the blog.

The game has been thoroughly tested but if you do find any errors please report them. A word on that though. The game can be quite difficult, and just because you can’t get some achievements doesn’t mean that there is a bug.
Some achievements cancel out others, and some are impossible to get if other factors aren’t quite right. But even then failing can be fun.

There are 20 achievements in stage one and 30 in stage two. You will not be able to get all of them in a single playthrough.

Good luck and have fun playing.

January 18th Update

Small changes

First of all, a very quick note from me (Chaotic) on some site changes. As you can see, I’ve changed the front page of the site to emphasize the blog more. I’ve also removed tumblr since I won’t be using it anymore, and I’ve moved the twitter widget further up so everyone can see it. I’ll be positing various experiments and images there intermittently, so follow and check it when you can.

dsp3000

From dsp3000 on his next game, Bridgette : part 2…

“The second stage of “A Date with Bridgette” is very nearly complete and should be ready for release next week.

All the images are done (unless I add some more) and this game is weighing in at a hefty 2240 images, which when added to stage one already makes 3135.

The switch to Javascripted animations has inflated the image count somewhat. I guess it’s added about 400 or 500 images over using GIFs for the animations. While it is difficult to compare accurately, stage two will be about the same size as most of the later parts of the Academy series.

By the time stage three of Bridgette is complete I am now thinking that 5000 images is a more realistic number.

For now here’s a little more information about the forthcoming stage two of ‘A Date with Bridgette’.

There were three locations to explore in stage one, in various combinations. In stage two there are two locations to choose from but each location gives longer scenes with multiple pathways within them. Several factors influence what can happen and some of these derive from what happened during stage one. Each of these pathways has a sex scene to discover.
The two paths then converge for another scene and if you make it past that then you are on the home straight.
If you crash and burn with Bridgette then there is also a substantial bonus scene in this game. The images should give away a little about this, but it is the most extensive sex scene I’ve ever created, especially in terms of how many options you have.

Over the next few days the game will be going through some pretty extensive testing to make sure it gets released without any errors.
That’s the aim anyway.

See you next week.”

Poll

EDIT : I also want to add a quick poll.

I now have 2 distinct formats for my games :

  • The ‘Betsy format’. A linear main plot, but with the choice of 3 locations for some segments. The advantage is that it’s much easier to have a clear plot and well defined characters this way.
  • The ‘Maddison format’. A more open structure when you can choose many locations at any time. The advantage is that the player experiences much more freedom.

Since both formats have a few examples now, I’m wondering which everyone prefers.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

This week, news from dsp300 on Bridgette…

“It’s been a few weeks now since the first stage of ‘A Date with Bridgette’ was released so you may be happy to hear that the next stage is almost complete and ready for release. I’m hoping to have it released on or around Friday 26th January.  The reason this stage has taken a little longer than previously anticipated is due to my decision to slightly restructure the game.

Instead of four stages, the game will now have three larger stages. I’ve moved some content originally planned for stage three forward to become part of stage two because I didn’t want the whole of the last part to just be about sex. Without giving too much away, I can assure everyone who was disappointed that they couldn’t get straight into Bridgette’s panties as soon as they met her, that there will be plenty of opportunities for sex during the forthcoming stage two. I guess I like to try to adhere to a level a reality by making you have to work for it.

If you successfully completed stage one you will have earned a completion code and you will be able to continue your evening with Bridgette. The codes record some key achievements which then pass on the the next stage. Those of you familiar with the previous installments of the Academy series should by now be well used to collecting codes and how certain combinations unlock different scenes and pathways. What happening during the early stages of the evening will govern what happens later on.

In terms of structure I will be releasing the next stage in two ways. Firstly there will be a version which only includes the new material for stage two which should be added to the stage one folder you have downloaded. Secondly there will be a version which includes everything from stage one and stage two in the same folder.

There will also be an online version. Whichever version you choose to use will give the option to play through from stage one directly to stage two without the necessity of inputting a code. The same will be true for the next stage after this. I want ‘A Date with Bridgette’ to eventually become a complete game which can be played all the way through without any need for breaks.

Another technical change I’m introducing to this stage is that I will no longer be using GIF files for the animated sequences.  Chaotic has been using a Javascript that allows animations without the image quality loss you get with interpolation banding. Basically, the animated image quality is better and the script gives a few more options too. The other side effect of using this method means a huge boost in image files without a huge boost in overall file size.

To explain. On average about 10% of the images in my games have been animated GIFs. Each animated GIF generally has about 5 frames (and circa 1.5MB) for looping versions and up to 50 frames (and circa 10MB) for things like cumshot sequences. But with GIFs even 50 frame sequences only appear as one image file. By switching to Javasript animations, each individual frame appears as an individual JPEG file. So instead of one GIF file there can be up to 50 JPEG files.

I worked out that if I had used Javascript animations for The Academy Part Four, instead of 1824 images there would have been about 2400 images. I mention this because the image count for stage two of ‘Bridgette’ is currently at about 1750. I have a few more animated sequences to complete and a few technical things to test and iron out. So yeah, it’s another pretty big game.

I’ve included a few images this week, none of which come from any of the sex scenes, but this doesn’t mean that there aren’t any.

More images and more details next week.”

January 8th Update

Just a small update today. I’ll be doing the Leanna evaluation on Friday when I also try and get back into the habit of doing weekly blog posts.

Saving Chloe

Tlaero and Mortze have finished their latest game and asked me to host it on the site. It’s called Saving Chloe and is the conclusion to the story arc they began in Dreaming with Elsa.

The game can be played here. As always, if you like the game, please consider supporting them on Patreon. You can do so for as little as $1 a month, and use Paypal.

Leanna

I’ve also added one (hopefully final) update to Leanna today. No gameplay changes, but I fixed about 100 spelling mistakes.

It should be version 2.3 now.

That’s all for today. See you all on Friday.

January 2nd Update

Happy new year everyone!

Just a list of small things to post today.

Previous Advents

As I normally do, here’s a link to all of the previous advent calendars, including last year’s short story.

DOWNLOAD LINK

I’ll leave the current calendar online for a little while longer in case anyone wants to save all of the images. Fun fact I forgot to mention – all of the images are 1920×1080, so they should work as wallpapers for most of you.

Leanna’s black male PC

Although I’m not adding it to the game properly, I might as well share all of the images I made for the second male player character in Leanna.

What to expect from the site in 2018

From myself (Chaotic), I’m planning to do at least 2 games this year. Ideally, I’d like to squeeze in 3 since Leanna took up so much of my time in 2017, but we’ll have to see what happens.

Currently, I’m making plans for my next IRAY rendered game, Molly. The intention is for this game to be free, but with earlier access given to paying members.

I’d like to do at least one new members only game sometime this year too. It’ll probably be smaller (Miranda sized), but I’m not sure what it will entail just yet.

I’m also going to reorganize some parts of the site. Since Tumblr updated the way they work (you have to be logged in to view images now), I’m think I’m going to start posting on twitter instead. If the image is flagged as adult, you still have to click on it to view, but you don’t actually have to have an account or be logged in.

Next week, I’ll be posting a full evaluation of Leanna : Breaking the Facade. See you then.

December 18th Update

Hi everyone

Today I am very happy to announce that the final version of Leanna : Breaking the Facade has now been released.

You can find it on the page for the game here. If you’ve visited the page recently, remember to refresh to get the new version. If you’re playing online, I recommend clearing your browsers cache to make sure the new game files load.

The updates for this game include :

  • 227 images added
  • The ability to play as a female
  • Expansion to the studio sex scene, including a new animation.
  • Small expansions to the streak and home sex ending
  • Some dialog fixes. If you pick stripper as your occupation, the strip club bouncer will now recognize you and make a comment.
  • Gallery section added to the game where I showcase some of the WIP images

Enjoy!

Just let me know if you encounter and issues with this version and I’ll fix them as soon as I can.

EDIT : Also, due to the time spent on this I’m not sure I’ll have time to do the planned mini story for the end of the advent calendar. We’ll see though. Maybe I’ll find the time somewhere.

December 14th Update

Just a small update today so that no one gets too worried about what’s happening with Leanna.

While the polls showed that most are not too bothered about the female gender option, those that are seem to be enthusiastic about it and that’s a factor I have to consider.

So, what I’ve decided to do is keep the female white gender. Since I really want to be truly done with Leanna, I will however be cutting down the female sex scenes a little (since that’s all that remains to do). There will be animations, but less than with the male gender (only 6 in total), and there will be no third person angles. Some unnecessary frames will be removed from the sex scenes so that I can get through the rendering quicker.

I am also just going to scrap the ethnicity options. People like then, but seem less bothered about them being there. If I keep them in now, it also sets a precedent which may be annoying – if I have them in Leanna, I’ll feel compelled to have them in all future IRAY games too. Since I’ve rendered so many of them though, I think I’ll still release all black male images in a zip sometime next week for everyone to see.

I’ve already been able to render all of the female player character still images with this plan. I’m currently rendering the animations. Hopefully, the final version of Leanna will be available on Monday.
