February 3rd Update

A fairly long series of small things to get through this week, rather than anything large.

Before I start though, a quick message for dsp3000. I’ve been having trouble sending you emails recently. Judging by the automated email I get in response, I think maybe your inbox might be full. If not, could you email me an alternative email address I could use to contact you?

Now, onto the rest.

Tutorials

First thing – I want to bring your attention to is the tutorials sections. A few people have been asking about this recently and didn’t realize it was there, so I want to bring a little emphasis to it.

A few years ago, I thought it would be a good idea to write a complete guide on how to make these games, so I spent several weeks doing just that. I assume it worked well as these are the tutorials that Dsp3000 and MrStomper used to learn how to create games.

So, if you’re interested in making games like these, or maybe just the images, see the tutorials section to learn how.

Leanna

Progress is continuing. The biggest thing to report this week is that I’ve decided to add an extra variable to the game.

Although the player is interacting with either Leanna or Kristen for most of the game, there are some scenes where neither are there. This means that dialog responses and other choices, actually made no real difference and were just there superficially.

So, what I’ve done is added a ‘personality’ variable. Different responsesΒ add to several different secondary variables, such as ‘nice’, ‘aggressive’ or ‘rude’. After these values become distinct, your personality will develop a statement, such as ‘Perfect human being’ or at the other extreme, ‘Total dick’.

The personality type you develop won’t make a major difference to gameplay, but I’ll add some subtle ones such as small bonus scenes. It’ll also be fun to see which personality types you can get, and give some relevance to the scenes without Leanna or Kristen.

The other good thing to report is that I’ve found a plugin which allows me to batch render IRAY images overnight, so hopefully the game production will progress quicker now. I should be able to get up to an extra 70 images rendered a week this way.

ArianeB

On Tumblr, I posted an image including ArianeB, Betsy and Violet, and some people were asking if it means anything.

Nothing special, I’m afraid. ArianeB’s creator just posted up the list of resources she used to create the character, soΒ I was able to create my own version or the character. I don’t think she’ll be appearing in any of my games though as I don’t want to do anything with the character the original author wouldn’t agree with. I suppose some sort or future collaboration might be possible though, with both of us writing and myself mainly doing the images.

Tech

I’ve been informed by my server host that the site may be down for around 45 minutes on February 8th for maintenance, so if it is, that’s why.

Poll

I’m having trouble deciding on the exact scenario for how you should see Leanna naked for the first time in her game. I have a few possibilities that could work, one just isn’t that hot (more ‘romantic’ instead), and the other basically has the player just watching for a long series of images instead of making choices, which I don’t like (I prefer it when the player is always making choices as often as possible).

The third option is one that works the best, but the problem is it’s a photoshoot, and I have already done a massive amount of these in my previous games. But is that a bad thing? They are hot. There’s a reason they turn up so often.

So, the question is, are you tired of seeing photoshoot scenes, or are you still always excited to experience a new one (as long as it works a little differently this time, of course).

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. I do like the photoshoots, but I am keen to see some different scenarios. Even just some simpler romantic date ones.

    To be honest, there’s nothing hotter in real life than a beautiful woman undressing slowly in front of you from a full outfit and smiling when nude, before you have sex. And that arousal does translate to a fantasy game scenario.

    I wouldn’t mind some shorter individual games like this with some of the characters from the Academy Series, like Laura, Bridgette, Didi.

      1. She still has a while until she’s finished. Hopefully it won’t be more than a couple of months though.

    1. A twist on the photoshoot might be fun, where the protagonist is the model and perhaps trying not to screw up the session while posing with petite and lubed up swimsuit models πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for your amazing work.. it’d be great if you could do some games based on heist missions or cop like GTA style thing.. would be great

  3. Wow, so many people want to see something different yet last week they all voted to not see something different.

    You do what you need to Chaotic, I just hope that at some point you do try new things in your games.

    personally I tried to use DAZ3D but I kept on getting a damn error message every time I tried to use it, maybe my PC is not up to spec, so I just gave up using it.

    What is Poser like?

    1. Dude, I’m pretty sure people are up for change. They just don’t like the specific change you have a fetish for.

      1. It is not about fetishes more like change or allowing new things to happen

        Plus the desire for a Photo-shoot is a fetish, in this case it is an erotic photo-shoot

        And I do not wish to argue with you Chaotic, I am asking those who voted

        1. Wasn’t trying to argue that that photoshoots weren’t a fetish, or that it’s all about fetishes.

          I’m just trying to argue against your theory that the voters are against change. They aren’t. They are very much in favor of change, just not the specific changes that you support.

          1. I understand where you are coming from I honestly do, it just gets to me too easily and I am sorry for that, it is who I am.

            Can I ask you 1 last thing and please be truthfully honest about this, do you have the creative desire to try new fetishes (orgy, bbbbg, gangbangs and such) even without the consensus of the publics choice?

            I appreciate your reply’s.

            1. He already mentioned his fetishes in the previous blog. Even if he’s not partial to certian fetishes, I’m sure he’d still contemplating in a game if enough people voted for them. However, the quality would dip since he’s not very passionate of those scenarios.

              1. Chaotic is not a fan of Incest but still made really great scenes in his games, I have no doubt in my mind that no matter what, even if he does not like it, he will still make it a great moment to remember, the Cass and Rachael scene proves that.

                1. Not being a fan of something and having a turnoff are two different things. I’m sure he is capable of making them work.But even so, why try to make him do something he won’t like?

                  Instead of contemplating, it was supposed to say “implement it”, not sure what happened there.

  4. Change is good but I have to ask why people vote for change here and yet did not vote on change on last weeks poll, humans are such bazar creatures

    Chaotic it is good to see that Leanna is going to get a productive speed boost, lets just hope that you PC’s power can hold out πŸ˜€

    Are you working on any other games at the same time as Leanna?

    1. This is not a case of change vs no change. We are just picking what we like, it’s as simple as that. It’s bizarre how you didn’t understand that. A fetish for one person can be a complete turnoff for another.

      1. It’s not really about change and more about accepting other people for their views, beliefs and fetishes, doing this makes the world a better place πŸ™‚

        On a personal note, I dislike Anal and BDSM but I will still play a scene in a game, it would not annoy me or cause me to loose interest in the game even if I had to play through the events.

        But enough about that, Chaotic, what is your take on Incest ever since you did Betsy Christmas special?

  5. What about a forfeit game for the first nudity scene? Truth or dare, strip poker, perhaps a sporting contest where the loser has to remove an item of clothing? Leanna is a fitness fanatic and competitive after all, but perhaps she has a weakness the player can exploit…

    1. There is a sporting contest segment similar to the one you describe later in game.

      A dare game is also a great premise, but it’s also the main one I have planned for Crystal Part 3 (the entire week is basically one big dare game).

      1. A seduction scene? Leanna challenges you to seduce her and for every right reply/move she removes an item of clothing/does a sexy dance…
        Or role play? She has to unearth something about yourself, in order to do it she tries to seduce you as a teacher/police officer/uniformed goddess! Make it too easy and she doesn’t go all the way, too hard and she gives up?

  6. Or perhaps the loser has to don a different costume each time, player choice, and Leanna surprises the player on the last forfeit with some low lighting and an extra special reveal…

  7. Although photoshoots are amazing and hot, maybe a small change might be needed…

    In the case of Leanna like she is a bit of a “bad person” and has bad karma, you could get to see her naked in other ways… maybe in a strip poker game like someone mentioned above, or in a game of truth or dare…
    Maybe she takes the player to do some shopping and uses him/her to see how some dresses fits on her and in one of those moments of seing dresses or whatever you get to see her naked and then maybe something happen like a little voyeur scene having sex or a bj in the fitting room while other people are in the other fitting room or a friend is on the other talking to the player or Leanna, that I think might be worth exploring…

    Im really happy that you discovered a plugin and now you are moving faster on the game tho.

    1. I like the changing room idea, that could be really fun if she was feeling a little adventurous and naughty

      1. CHANGING ROOM!!! fuck I totally forgot the word and I had to google it and fitting room appeared and I was like “meh… fuck it… fitting room then”

        I think it would fit Leanna because in a previous post Chaotic mentioned that you help her to be a bit more naughty and get to know her really well for the game… plus that she needs a impeccable attitude due to her work that might have lead to the bad karma situation that she is in at the moment.

  8. Photoshoot is good, but i would really like to see some strip contest like in the first rachel game, that was phenomenal.

  9. I voted either-way regarding the photoshoot. At this point, it’s almost like a VDate Game tradition, but it might be refreshing to see something else for a change.

  10. Honestly, I would like something other than photography, as a job or hobby or even a fetish. We all know how you feel about photography and its something that we all do but not everyone wants that as their job. Try something else.

  11. photoshoot.. hmmmm

    i m not bored about photoshoot, but i think something different (but similar) can be used one time.
    my idea was to replace the photoshoot section (purelly professional or for fun, but still in the “classic” photoshoot style that your games have) by and sort of .. oh can i explain that ? ….. an sort of selfies (maybe not good grammar) of both character player + leanna or Kristen. something like that for an kind of portofolio (grammar -_- ). i think it can be funny to allow the player to make selfie on some place (maybe sexy selfies too), its different than photoshoot session and actually “real and modern” like mostof peoples do todays.
    just an idea.

    ps: sorry for grammar fault πŸ™

    1. i mean selfies where 2 characters (player + girl) appear on the pics, as a souvenir or something. can be make in different place and in different style

      hope you see what i mean..

  12. Hey Chaotic, How about a game sometime where the pacing and ‘dating’ is shaken up a bit. If you ask me this ‘Go on a date, find compatibility, and score a 1 night stand’ is a tad bit old. How about something that happens by chance? Like say you are a biker who gets lost on your way to a destination and you meet a beautiful girl that you fall for (And she secretly falls for you) in a gas station only to find out she’s a nun.

    Maybe something multiple days. The game mechanics and choices would need to work differently as you are literally as ‘opposite attracts’ as you can get. Impress her by being a man, doing stuff she doesn’t see, or even saving her from bad guys.

    It would be more challenging and different. What do you think?

  13. Hmm Well, the bar scene is looking very good. But the image is very grainy when you look closely. In a less illuminated environment Chaotic you should do about 3000-4000 iterations for best results. Or you should apply a noise reduction filter on the final image.
    I applied a noise reduction filter on bar9.jpg πŸ™‚

    Zoom on the image to clearly see difference

    1. That image was actually done at 4000. I know that in theory it would look smoother with a higher number, but the amount of time it would take to render just makes it impractical.

      Could you try your links again? I’m intrigued to see what a noise reduction filter can do.

  14. What were your system specs when creating your first games? And how long did those games take you to make?(overall with the rendering and coding)

    1. I have no idea what my specs were when I was making Crystal part 1. They weren’t very high though. My PC didn’t even have a graphics card at the time, I was just using the integrated graphics from the motherboard.

      Overall, it took me about 3 months to make (including learning how to do everything.)

      1. How would I probably fair with rendering? my current specs are:
        Intel core i5-4690k running 3.5Ghz can get it to 4.7 stable
        16GB of RAM
        6GB Asus GeForce GTX 1060

  15. Everything looks and sounds great, Chaotic!! Definitely looking forward to your next game!! I hope dsp3000 is okay, it sounds like there’s been no contact with him as of late. Hope the Academy is coming along for him! Best wishes to you both!

  16. Daym! Crystal looks really good right now! I was playing the first game and I had totally forgotten that Rachel and Crystal were supposed to be friends. There are only three games where they appear together. Will we get another game where Rachel and Crystal will perhaps both have sex with the main character? I really do hope so.

    Also, when can we expect a new rendering of Kristen?

    Really great work on Crystal you did there. Can’t wait to see what other models will look like once you “remaster” them.

  17. I voted doesn’t matter either way. I don’t mind the photography scenarios at all. It usually has one of my favorite things, teasing. Watching a beautiful woman slowly taking off her clothes and seeing what kind of sexy lingerie she has on underneath. Watching her posing erotically for the camera. I love when a woman leaves her lingerie on during sex and if she’s wearing thigh highs just wow. Just pulling her panties to the side or ripping them depending on how hot and heavy things are. So hot. I’ve never played one of your games and thought to myself “Oh no not another photography game”

    I like the personality variable you’re adding. Adds a little something extra besides a bunch of just naked pics. Not that I’m complaining about naked pics of your sexy girls. You, dsp and mrstomper have some of the best looking girls. Speaking of dsp, I hope you hear from him. I love his academy series. The whole college girls/high school senior (18 year olds) like Betsy is hot as hell. One of my favorite things and if dsp3000 hadn’t already created an academy series I would have recommended you create something like it. Not that you can’t or shouldn’t in the future. I’d love to see you’re take on a college campus game and see the girls you would create. I think it takes me back to high school when I would try and get a peek up the girls sexy little short skirts. Or the cheerleaders in their hot little uniforms. Damn hot. I wish there had been more of April in her cheerleading uniform but that’s just nitpicking a fantastic game.

    I know you don’t need them and I hope I’m not overstepping but just a few ideas I find hot. A scenario where the player is a yoga instructor or taking a yoga class. Always beautiful women there. Or could be some kind of instructor (or member) of a gym. Sexy things like showers, steam rooms, locker rooms and sometimes hot tubs/pools at gyms. All kinds of things could be done. Even taking a page from dsp3000’s Academy and do something with hidden cameras. Another scenario could be a cruise of some sort (singles cruise, college semester at sea). Being either a passenger or part of the crew. Someone above mentioned a masseur. That could be hot or even a physical therapist. One thing I’ve always found smoking hot was women’s volleyball players. They have amazing figures. A scenario could be the player as maybe the coach or even perhaps the team’s physical therapist. Rubbing down their sore muscles. Couple other quick ones would be: some type of cheerleader based game. I’ve always thought stewardesses were hot. A different take on a photography game, maybe the player is taking pics for the senior high school yearbook and some of the girls want to take some sexier personal pics. Lol I don’t know, you’re the one who’s great at coming up with awesome games and putting stories together. At the end of the day you’re the creator and I’ve enjoyed all your games and will continue to enjoy whatever you create in the future. Apologies for the wall o’ text.

    1. Thanks!

      They certainly look smoother, though if I’m being honest it may have made things look a little too smooth. Leann’s skin almost looks a little plastic. I think the key might be a little smoothing, but still leave the tiniest bit of grain for realism.

      I’ll have a look though some photoshop tutorials and see what I can do! πŸ™‚

      1. Well i overdone the effect as i was just experimenting. A little sharpen filter can fix the problem in my guess. I will try again and share the results.

  18. Whazzup chaotic, i was thinkin, what if, leanna was a fitness model, as i have seen ur pics in ur tumbler she looks fabulously hot in the fitness center, and your a doctor and she goes to you for a checkup? You dont know each other yet, and while examination tests or watevr, one thing leads to another? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    1. Nice scenario, but too be honest I’m far too deep into production to change anything that drastically. πŸ™‚

  19. Speaking of photo shoots. I was just wondering if the fourth Academy will be the conclusion, or will it be continued with a fifth? I would understand either way, but as the character is working for the school for a week, then I would think that a fifth episode would be a good way to round it off. Five episodes, one for each day of the work week. Either way, though, I’m happy with y’alls work. I wish I had even a tenth of the talent you folks do. Keep up the great work.

        1. Cool. You do great work, dsp3000. Wish I had even half of the talent y’all got. I have idea’s, but doubt they would be any good. LoL

      1. Indeed.
        Rumours of my untimely demise have been grossly exaggerated.

        I am alive and well and working on part four of the Academy series.
        Still plenty to do so no firm updates or predicted release dates as yet.
        πŸ™‚

  20. Can we have some tits that aren’t cookie cutter? I mean, vary them a bit–it may be weird, but some of us go for small tits and embarrassed girls. If the game tits getany bigger, the characters will start having back pain! lol

  21. BTW that new character on tumblr looks amazing! Imo breats are a bit too big but I know most ppl want then big af xD

    1. Nah, I find April’s, Alex’s and Kelly’s breast size perfect for their bodies. It depends on body type, some look better with smaller breasts, others look better with larger breasts.
