May 29th Update – Playoff results

The results are in!

The full list is below, and as most of you can already see, the winner is…Rachel! Leanna takes second place and Maddison third.

An interesting experiment with a few nice surprises. Maddison didn’t win as an obvious one, but I did suspect something like this might happen. She has her fanbase, but she also has a notable amount of players who really don’t like her. Rachel as the winner makes more sense. Her fanbase isn’t as loud, but it’s there and everyone seem to like her to some degree.

Other interesting results include Mia and Katie doing surprisingly well. Molly doing more ‘average’ than I would have thought. Violet beasts April in the Bynes family+ group.

Let me know if there’s any surprises for you!

Oh, and in case you were wondering, it’s Carol from Photographer Part 3 who came last. 🙂

Without further delay, here’s the full list. The results rating is out of 3 (if you want it to to be out of 10, just multiply the result by 3.33). This is because the rating was calculated by defining the average of the three ratings.

May 22nd Update

Playoffs : final round!

Next week, I’ll be doing the calculations and presenting the full ranking.

Last reminder of the rules : I’ve got 56 characters altogether. You can give each character a rating A = 3 points, B = 2 points, C = 1 point. After  4 weeks of polls, I calculate the score of each character, weighted against how many people voted for them (so they don’t just win by getting more votes, it’s what types of votes they get).

May 1st Update – The VDG playoffs

I’ve been looking for something fun to do over a series of weeks here on the site. After careful consideration , I thought a good idea would be…character playoffs!

Over the years, I’ve done the occasional poll where visitors can choose their favorite, but I’ve never done a definitive list where we end up with all of the characters ranked.

If my math is correct, we can get the list finished in 4 weeks of rounds. So, that means 4 weeks of polls, then I guess I’ll make something fun with some of the top ladies.

Here’s the rules : I’ve got 56 characters altogether. You can give each character a rating A = 3 points, B = 2 points, C = 1 point. After  4 weeks of polls, I calculate the score of each character, weighted against how many people voted for them (so they don’t just win by getting more votes, it’s what types of votes they get).

The characters will be in alphabetical order, so let’s get started.

February 10th Update

So, what’s happening on vdategames in 2020?

I’ve toyed with a few ways to open this blog post, but found myself completely unable to settle on anything. So, I’m just going to bluntly state it – I’m taking a year away from the site and making games.

As at least some of you will know, making these games and maintaining the site isn’t my main job. I have a ‘real life’ career I juggle alongside it. There is a massive opportunity for me to do something with it this year, and it’s really hard to say no, so I’m taking it.

It’s something I knew would be happening for a while now, hence I’ve tried to tie up any loose story arcs lately (such as finishing the Crystal and Photographer trilogies). There is also the possibility that, should it go particularly well, my retirement from these games won’t be too far to away.

It’s hard to say at this point. I’ll be able to give you a much clearly picture on how many more of these games I’m likely to make at the end of the year.

We all know I’m not going to be making games like this forever, but this isn’t the end just yet. More the beginning of the end perhaps.

So, what is happening on this site this year?

Well, I’ll still be making blog posts at least once a month. I’ll be making some renders for fun, and probably small galleries for holidays (July 4th, Halloween etc).

Other contributors will also (probably) still be releasing games. I’m assuming dsp3000 will have at least one game this year, and we may hear from MrStomper.

I will also be releasing some games for free (from the members section), throughout the year. The next free game will be released on Friday the 21st.

Farewell?

This is certainly an au revoir rather than an adieu. I won’t be going too far. I’ll still be around on the blog if you have questions.

But, for now I’m taking a step back for what is set to be a very exciting year for me.

So, let’s finish on a positive note and a Valentines themed render.

Chaotic

January 31st Update

Just a few smaller things this week.

First of all, the walkthough for Crystal Part 3 is now online in the walkthoughs section. Click here to view it.

Due to the very open style of this game, it’s impossible to do a traditional walkthrough, but hopefully this guide will be enough to help anyone who is stuck.

Second, there is a small update to the game. I’ve fixed a couple of game errors, plus re-rendered 10 images. There was a weird issue making this game where the shader for Crystal’s hair was on the wrong mode, making it super reflective and a bit like she has a bald spot. I corrected this in a bunch of images before the main release, but there was some I missed.

If you don’t want to download the full game, there is a patch on the game’s page instead.

EDIT : I will be doing the next blog post on Monday as I’m tired and unwell today. (stomach virus, I think – no, not that one).

January 24th Update

Crystal Part 3 in now available for all members. As always, if you don’t see it listed yet, remember to refresh.

The final image count is 1045, with 5 sex scenes in total, including one threesome.

This is the most open game I’ve made in a while, with a very freedom driven main mid-section. Eight different locations to visit around the hotel, and you can try each of them in any order. Choosing good orders to do them in can make the game much easier.

There is an easy difficulty setting if you get stuck.

Not much else to add, so enjoy!
