December 16th Update

Progress updates…

April & Violet : Part 2

Progress on this is still going very well. Those watching my tumblr will have noticed April naked in the shower. This is the setup to your solo sex scene with her.

As always, not too much to say about this game as I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s some more preview images….

Leanna

Progress with Leanna is slow, but consistent. I currently have 54 images rendered for this game, which is a respectable start, but I’m only getting 2 or 3 images added each day. Assuming the game ends up at around 1000 images, that could mean that I don’t finish it until Christmas 2017. Hopefully, there will be bursts of speed though. The current images I’m rendering take about 30-40 minutes each, but it’s mainly because of the set (there’s lot’s of reflections). Images rendered in other locations may be much quicker. When there’s no location and I just render a character against a background color (like the outfit previews I post), it only takes about 3 minutes by comparison.

Leanna seems to be the one I’m most excited about right now though. I have the full plan for the story now and nearly all of the characters set up and ready.

A note on the game structure – After I released Betsy, I wrote a little evaluation where I suggested that I should have changed the ‘layout’ of the game. As it was released, you had 2 date nights with a choice of 3 locations each time (then a third one with a choice of 3 photoshoot locations). I think that I should have rearranged the first 2 dates, so that they were actually 3 different nights, with a choice of 2 locations each time instead. Building up Betsy’s confidence that way would have made more sense, as it would have happened over a longer period of time. So, this is what I’m planning with Leanna. There will be five ‘dates’ in one playthrough, and each will have a choice of two locations or activities, and between each date, there will be a more linear daytime sequence.

Leanna will also be the subject of this week’s poll! For the sex scenes, I’m going to add the optional ability to switch to a third person view, which I’m called the ‘cinematic’ view. So far when I’ve been doing this, my instinct has been to obscure the player’s face. The theme for my games has always been that it’s you dating these ladies, rather than some preset character, and I feel like showing the player’s face spoils this. The potential problem with this however, is the female player character. When I posted what she looked like some time ago, a number of you noted that she was quite hot, and that you looked forward to seeing her naked too. But if I never show her face during the cinematic view, you’ll never really see the character naked properly, which I feel might be disappointing.

Here’s what the female PC looks like in case you forgot…

One way around this might be to not show the male player characters face, but to just show everything when it comes to the female player character. It might feel a little weird and unbalanced not showing both though. What do you all think? Here’s some options.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

The Photographer Part 3

Over the past week, I really warmed to the idea of doing Photographer Part 3 as a series of smaller volumes. It’ll be quick, fairly easy to do (each volume will probably only take 2-3 weeks), and it’ll be a a good way to have some consistent releases for the members section, whilst also giving me the freedom to create larger free to play games.

I’m not as certain about including the foursome involving Betsy, Rachel and Cassandra though. I’m finding it hard to believe that Betsy would ever do something like that. A foursome with Violet and April just about works, but a foursome with her mother and sister just seems beyond believable to me. It also might make the game little too incest themed as a whole. The Maddison and Lisette threesome however will definitely happen though. That one make much more sense considering one of the possible endings of Lisette’s game.

One idea someone brought up which I had forgotten about, was the possibility of having the cast of scifi mission pose for photoshoots. It’s been established that the scifi setting is actually a TV and film franchise in the normal game universe. Since Mr. Hughes is a pseudo Hugh Hefner, it makes sense that you might be doing a photoshoot with celebrities for his pseudo Playboy magazine.

For a while I’ve been wanting to get the real life versions of the Captain, Josie and Aletta in a game, to the point where I already have their human looks and outfits setup. Here’s what Aletta looks like human in case you were wondering.

Crystal Part 3

Nothing new to say on Crystal Part 3 as I won’t be working on it until April & Violet Part 2 is finished.

Schedule

So, yeah. I’m not 100% certain what the release schedule for the next year will look like. I was optimistically hoping to finish and release Crystal Part 3 for February or March, but since I’m still working on Crystal and Violet, I’m not so certain. It may be more likely that Crystal Part 3 isn’t finished until about June 2017, with Leanna maybe released around October. That would mean maybe Photographer Part 3, volume 1 is released in March instead. If that happens though, I will be releasing a game for free from the members section, most likely Photographer Part 2, so everyone will have something new to play.

See you all next week for possibly a slightly different and fun post just before Christmas.

  1. Do you still haev plans to do the 3d games as I was really interested in how you could execute this idea. Is it something you want to dabble in , or is it a distant pipe dream for the future.

    1. Possibly, yes. I’ve been approached by someone who’s proposed a form of collaborations effort, so I might be going that way with the 3d game. I’m going to see how busy I am in the new year.

  2. The Betsy, Cass and Rachel foursome could be semi-canon. Since it isn’t consistent with the Betsy character, you could do it so that the foursome is really difficult to achieve. Furthermore, you could make all incest scenes semi-canon if you wanted. They wouldn’t get mentioned and characters would act like it never happened unless it’s about to happen again or during new sex scenes.

    1. One possibility I was considering is something like a dream sequence, but it feels like a bit of a weak option. If I go that route, then why can’t there be a dream sequence for every scenario.

      I’ll have to think about it. There isn’t as much of a demand for the Betsy foursome compared to the Maddison/Lisette threesome.

      1. One possibility can be that they were deprived from all of their assets and money. So having an erotic family photoshoot is the only way to make some fast money to get their house back 😉

      2. What about just Betsy/Rachel or Betsy/Cassandra? Another option could be, with dsp3000’s permission, a foursome with Maddison/Lisette/Maria? Since it’s been established that they’re all okay sharing you it would flow better storywise.

        1. Tman you beat me to it 🙁 that would be awesome. and i agree betsy and rachel because its not be done yet

  3. You’re right, the foursome incest scene isn’t realistic… but you could make it happen in a kind of dream sequence for example.
    Would love to see it 🙂

  4. It’s a shame about the foursome with Betsy, Rachel and Cassandra. I would like to see it but you are right, it wouldn’t make much sense. The only way I could see it work is if it’s a progression like Maddison and Lisette. For example, if Betsy ever gets another game then include a threesome with Betsy and Rachel, since I feel like Rachel is the one that could persuade Betsy into it and also Rachel is a sexual predator, she can do anything especially if she found out about the foursome with Player, Betsy, April and Violet.

    Then in the game, after that, have a threesome with Cassandra and Betsy. Betsy would be more open to it since she’s been with her sister and if Cassandra confesses to Betsy that she’s also been with Rachel then I feel those two could get together for a threesome with the Player, since they’ve been in a similar position before.

    Then finally have another game where the foursome is possible since everyone involved as already been in threesomes with each other (Rachel/Cassandra, Rachel/Betsy, Betsy/Cassandra) so it should be more natural for them. That’s the only way I can see it happening without doing a dream sequence which I wouldn’t like.

    But as you can see you will need at least three parts to make it plausible which is obviously not gonna happen before you start to work on the renders for The Photographer – Part 3. You could place a Rachel and Betsy threesome in The Photographer – Part 3 instead. So if you do want to have a foursome eventually, the seeds would be planted for the next two steps. Looking back at this it might not be the best idea but if you ever decide to have the foursome, I think this is one way of doing it. Great work by the way.

  5. I agree that the incest 4some is far fetched. I think an interesting idea would be to do a photo shoot with all 3(Rachel, Cass, Betsy), but have the end goal to have a 3aome with Rachel and Cass without Betsy knowing. You could have Betsy walk in at the end, leaving it open ended for future content.

    I’m sure whatever you come up with will be great. I think it’s a great idea for a series.

    1. Betsy getting into a incest foursome makes a a teenny tiny bit more sence if she’s gay, ie female PC/girlfriend.

      Still needs a lot of build up.

      Would R & C be deceptive? or take advantage of a drunk B?

  6. The Photographer Part 3 will we be Betsy ex if so does everyone find out what happen doing AprilandViolet part 1&2. Also in Leilani who was the woman in the mask

    1. I can’t remember exactly since it was so long ago but I swear Chaotic said the model used for the masked woman was Rachels. That doesn’t mean that it is Rachel since the masked woman filmed both Rachel and Leilani in one of the earlier games but her body is. She as a character is unknown I believe.

      1. Well the skin is sort of pale and maybe you could work a little more on the face and hair (looks like she’s lived in the countryside sometimes) and maybe her boobs need some work (MAYbe). But I do like the hourglass body shape and the legs.

        1. OK. I’ll consider it. I haven’t really altered the female PC beyond what I put together a while ago.

          If nothing else, I do agree that there’s something a little off about her skin tone. A touch of green maybe?

          1. Thanks Chaotic, I know what I’m asking might be much, but you’re a real good guy. You don’t make these games just for yourself but for us too (all of us). We all contribute in some small way and I’m glad I’m a part of it.

  7. Just to confirm, you’re still planning on early January for April/Violet Part II, right?

    Just making sure for the timing of renewing my membership. lol

  8. I appreciate you not going forward w/ the Betsy,Cass,Rachel Foursome that is way out of Character for Betsy. A Sarah,Kelly,Betsy Foursome might be a Better option.I like the Human Aletta look Hope you go forward with that.

  9. The Betsy, Cassandra and Rachel foursome could be modeled after a “bottle” episode. This way you could proceed with the foursome but proceed with the narrative as if it never happened. I’m not sure if you watch anime, but the more popular ones release movies. These movies tend to be semi-canon. The way it works is that a specific movie falls somewhere on the timeline of the show. The anime itself however never mentions anything that ever happened in a movie. This is one way of keeping the ones that want the foursome satisfied and the ones that care more about character consistency satisfied. I obviously want the foursome, but it wouldn’t be the end of the world if you decided against it.

  10. Finally! I’ve been waiting to see the cast of the sci fi mission again! Great thinking Chaotic! I’m excited to get “reacquainted” with the Captain!

    So just to be sure the timeline is(excluding dsp3000’s The Academy and any potential Mr. Stomper games):
    April & Violet pt 2 – January
    Crystal pt 3 – June
    Leanna – October
    Photographer pt 3 – March 2018?

  11. Maybe after the volumes of Photographer Part 3 could do Grace Part 2 while you are still in a relationship with Sarah you can have a threesome with Sarah and Jess or Sarah and Alex

  12. Chaotic, I love those two new images. Man, you have really nailed the eyes on both. Leanna’s smile is perfect for a news anchor. Fake.

    I like the new PC character. I think she looks really good.

  13. Just out of curiosity, will you ever be bringing back girls from earlier games we haven’t seen for a while, like Ellie or Jess for example. Would be cool to see them in the photographer part 3 or even crystal part 3!

  14. are you going to give us some video or looooong gift as the 25 of the advent calendar ? loved this idea before 😀

    i m just here chilling and waiting for great stuff as always . early christmas and happy new year and chinese new year and all that stuff from all country 😀

  15. Betsy foursome does seem a bit out of character; I would love to see it, but definitely don’t force it. That being said, just hearing that Betsy will be in The Photographer series is fantastic. I hope there’s a great set-up for her becoming confident enough to go fully nude in pictures that are to be distributed throughout the world.

  16. What about Betsy there because she’s a fan of the scifi cast and you are there to take pictures for Mr. Hughes. While both the player and Betsy bump into each other by accident. Also one of the valumes you have to take pictures of Zoe, Emma, Miranda, and Faye where you can have sex with all of them

          1. Looks like we have a correlation then. We’ll look into what’s causing the problems specifically on iPhones as soon as we can.

            In the meantime, I’ve uploaded the original version of the game so you can play it online. On the academy Part 3 page, you should now see an ‘iphone version’ below the play button. Click that instead. It should work for you.

  17. I wonder if you ever will introduce Lisette and Maddison’s mother. They’ve briefly mentioned her at the Lisette ending, that would be really cool.

  18. Random comment, I LOVE the Kelly pic in the Advent Calendar today. Kelly is my favorite VDateGame girl, so I was thrilled to see her in today’s entry.

  19. Instead of putting the Betsy/Rachel/Cassandra foursome in this game, why not save it for a future game? Say a continuation of the Betsy game and its timeline? April & Violet has already given something of a set-up, with Violet asking the main character if s/he’s talked to Betsy lately.

    Suppose you have a sequel where April and Violet try to help the protagonist and Betsy get back together. Betsy, however, having had her heart broken is resistant and it takes some serious doing. Along the way you could also interact with Rachel and Cassandra and either try to seduce them (leading to alternate endings) or recruit them into helping Betsy and the main character get back together. Play all the cards perfectly right and it could end with a fourway.

        1. Hello, just checking, I see a rough schedule for April and Violet, The Photographer 3, and a few others. I did not really see one for The Academy part 4. Do you know a rough time frame for the release of that one?

          I think that is my favorite series. The character adaptations and progression is awesome. Also, the chemistry with Bridgette is amazing.
          Good work!

          1. Thank you for the feedback.

            I have started working on part four of The Academy series. I hope to have it all completed by March 2017.

            All the best.
