Not too much else to talk about this week, so I’m just going to list where my current mood is in regard to future games.
Some time ago I stated that I was considering the idea of doing a game based around a ‘girl group’- a pseudo spice girls style ensemble with three to five different singers.
I’m currently leaning towards this as my next game, which would be for members only as I really need to add something to the members section. This seems a good fit as, to be blunt, a game featuring multiple characters which you can have sex with such as the photographer games or the academy series always attracts more new members.
It would also be my return to Poser for at least one more game. It means I get to use unused characters such as Mia or Cherise.
I’ll see what happens. I’m certainly developing a more favorable attitude towards IRAY now that I’ve taken a break.
Part of the reason Leanna took so long is because I was also learning. Knowing what I do now, There’s a good chance a new game with IRAY might just take as long as one with Poser. I’ll have to do at least one more IRAY game to find out.
Crystal Part 3
For a couple of years now, I’ve been considering finishing my Crystal trilogy. I actually have a plot I’m really satisfied with and a good logic for how the gameplay should go. Basically, day times are fairly linear (though they can branch off in different directions), and the evenings have complete freedom, working more like Jennifer. This seems like a good way to have a plot I can control, but lots of space for the player to explore too.
I think part of the reason I haven’t really gotten too enthusiastic about this game might be Crystal herself. She’s my oldest character, and has appeared the second most amount of times in my games (Rachel is the only one higher). It’s not quite that I’m tired of working with her, but there has to be a change that makes working on her game worth it to me.
So, what I’m really leaning towards right now is to update Crystal herself and completely remake the character with Genesis 3 and IRAY. I don’t just mean transfer the character to the new base model either. I mean start from scratch. It would be the equivalent of what Arianeb did years ago when she upgraded from V3 to V4.
I would keep the general face structure and style of Crystal, but make her more modern and, hopefully, hotter.
I see ‘April and Violet’ as Betsy 2, so I do like the idea of a ‘Bynes family trilogy’ finishing off Betsy and co’s story.
At least one of you noticed the Easter egg in Leanna of her neighbor being named A Bynes. This was part of a possible setup for the next chapter in Betsy’s story. ‘A’ is actually her father, and the story would mainly be focused on finding him and reuniting the family.
I don’t have too much yet with this game when it comes to ideas though.
I also have some ideas and models together for a Nascar-centric game I was starting work on a while ago.
The main woman would be one of the drivers and you would be working with her to expose corruption in the sport. I also liked the idea of a hispanic main female (the site needs more ethnic diversity). I have a few Spanish villa models that would work well for this game too.
Now that most of you have played Leanna and seen Molly’s role in it, you can probably guess how she features in this game too.
I have other projects I started doing tests for but never really got beyond that stage.
Here’s a couple of images of Kristen as a Catwoman like superhero for instance. I didn’t like my original Kristen for Leanna, so I just used the one I had here. It’s crazy how different, but still hot, she looks with her hair down and glasses gone. That definitely works well for a superhero persona.
We’ve already seen her with a gun, so maybe this would be a fun way to go a Kristen game. Developing different heroes and villain would also be quite fun for me.
So, what do any of you say when it comes to any of these ideas. Two polls this week with slightly different questions just so I can gauge the responses better.
When answering, try just assuming that whichever game I make will be free, as I have no idea what would be free or paid for yet. Hell, maybe they’ll all be free. The revenue from the members section has been consistent for a while.
