A couple more renders from Betsy this week, this time from the photoshoot segment.
I know there’s already been many photoshoots in my games over the years, but if this is my last game, it seems appropriate to include one.
New previews this week from the centrepiece of Betsy.
Since part of the plan was to have as many cameos from other leading ladies in this game, I thought it would be fun to have a significant overlap with another game. In this case, Leanna.
In this game, Betsy, Violet, April and you are all invited to a familiar looking spring break party.
I’m not too sure when the next blog update will be, so I’ll just say that I’ll update it when I can and I have something good to show.
Jumping ahead to the second half of the game now. These images are from when you meet up with Betsy, April and Violet all together.
And to match Betsy’s outfit in this scene, here’s the title card I’ll be using.
And now it’s time for a little break in production. As I said back in the July 7th update, I only had the initial 3 weeks before I had other commitments.
There will be some sort of update (or updates) to the blog during August, but I don’t know how substantial they’ll be.
About a third of the images required for the game are built now, so I’m pretty confident saying it’ll be released this year, I’m just not certain when yet.
See you in the next blog update!
So, after I asked everyone last week what their preference was for my next (and potentially last) game, the answers made it pretty clear : most people want a Betsy finale.
So this week I dug out and reassembled my work on the updated Betsy model. I was able to fix the hair issues I was having, and the weird lip texture that was making her look weird.
This is what I’ve got. I feel happy with it.
I’ll have a bunch of spare time over the next 3 weeks, so I’ll get to work making as many images as I can. I doubt I’ll finish it in that time, so I’m expecting something like a month long break afterwards, then a final couple of week to finish it up. That means a release of either late August or September, but it could also be later in the year. Christmas release at the latest.
I still like the idea of doing an Epilogues 3 some time too (Rachel and Sukiko are obvious choices), so maybe I’ll finish with that in the new year.
For the next few weeks they’re be previews and blog posts each Friday, so I’ll see you all then!
Quick recap for those of you who don’t read the blog with every update.
I’ve been slowly winding down my activity of the site for a couple of years now, with the intention of retiring fully from making these games at some point. I’d still like to do something substantial this year though, so here’s the ideas and options:
I’ve been thinking about remasters of my older games recently. I don’t think anything rendered in IRAY (that’s anything after Leanna) needs a remaster, but older ones are a good option. Not counting the Photographer series, Maddison was always my most popular game from that era, so how about remastering her game?
The catch with this is that I wouldn’t be able to remaster the threesomes since Rachel and Kelly don’t have updated models. I can still have threesomes, but with different characters.
I’ve done some test renders reusing sets from Crystal Part 3. Note that the outfits here are just basic examples, and I would use better ones in the real game.
A really obvious options would be concluding my epilogues trilogy. The problem with this is that, people have quite liked the epilogues so far, but I don’t know if there’s a lot of enthusiasm for them.
Or am I wrong? Would anyone love to see another epilogues?
A follow up/ending to Betsy’s story arc is another option. I never felt Betsy was a super popular character though. Plus I still need a lot of building and rebuilding of Betsy, April and Cassandra’s models to do the game right.
Photographer part 4
The photographer series has always been my most popular creation. I don’t like the idea of main characters being used in a new one since most are established as being in a relationship now, but a selection of more ‘secondary’ women could work well.
Such as :
Let me know any of your thoughts below. Feel free to add your own suggestions, but please no full pitches for game ideas you’ve had. I’m looking for stuff with established characters only.
