March 30th Update

Just a few briefer words today.

Upcoming games

First of all, dsp3000 has given me an update on progress for Bridgette : Part 3. Things are certainly progressing, but slowly right now due to other commitments in his life. Currently, a May release is looking most likely. As always, don’t take that as Bible, and things are always subject to change here.

Personally, I’m still on my break, but I’ve still had a little time to experiment. Specifically, with Marianna. I wanted to create a body for her which was curvy, but not just ‘less skinny with big tits’. After analyzing some real life models to look at their proportions, and actually getting some measurements from a very nice and friendly cammodel, I’ve ended up with this…


One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument
So, it seems that recently there has been an influx of trolls stirring up hate on this blog. As narrow minded as obtuse as they are, really the problem is that they refuse to acknowledge any reply, and keep repeating the same thing over and over again.
Typically, I just let these things fly. They’re technically just stating an opinion, but the ban hammer is always and option. I’ve only banned 2 people from this blog ever though, so it’s not my natural first reaction.
So, what does everyone think? To ban those who are clearly just trolls or not?

Ban anyone who is clearly just a troll, or do they have a right to post?

And as addendum, where do you think the discussion for the site should be? Currently, everything is just discussed here, but there’s also a lot of sense in moving it over to the new lagoon forum. It means I wouldn’t have to moderate everything, and also might encourage more people to join any discussions. I would still post blog updates, and include the occasional poll, but at the end of every one, I’d post a link to the forum where people can talk about it.
So, what do you think?

Where should we discuss things?

That’s all for this week. No guarantee there’ll be an update next week, but I do have a series of ‘fun’ posts planned over the next month.

March 9th Update

New games

Today, I’m very happy to announce that Leanna’s big Streak has been released for all members.

When her car breaks down on the freeway, only a mile away from her apartment, Leanna is dared to make her own way home…naked! Control Leanna as she navigates the various routes and hopefully makes it back home.

This is a fairly small game, with 180 images in total.

Also released today is something I’m calling the vdategames ‘Image Collection : vol 1’.

It’s 50 HD, stylized, IRAY rendered images of many of your favorite characters.

All images are 1920×1080, so will also work well as wallpapers for most of you.

Join the members section now to enjoy both!

What next?

Next, if you haven’t been keeping up with the blog, I’m going to take a decent sized break from making games to collect my thoughts. This may mean I’m not making frequent posts on a Friday, so if there’s not one next week, don’t be too surprised.

In the coming weeks, dsp3000 will also no doubt begin posting previews for his next game, A Date with Bridgette : Part 3.

See you all….sometime!



March 2nd Update

Leanna Epilogue

Today I’m happy to announce that Leanna : The Big Streak will be released for members next week, Friday March 9th.

In case you haven’t been following the blog updates, this is a fairly small game (probably just under 200 images). Stranded just outside of the city, Leanna is dared by the player to streak all of the way back to her apartment.

There’s been an alteration to the game, but I think it’s one that most people won’t mind. Rather than streaking with the player, Leanna does the dare solo, and you control her for most of the game. Not having to stick to conventional, first person camera angles means that I’ve been able to get some much better images rendered that really showcase how she is naked in the open scenery.

And also…

Since this is a smaller game, I’d like the update to be more substantial. So, I’m also going to add a decent sized set of images I’m calling ‘vdategames image collection – Vol 1’. Expect around 50 high resolution images of various different characters from the site, most of which will be nude. It’s like the advent calendar I do every year, but without the Christmas theme.

If it’s well received, I could certainly make this a regular things (maybe every 2 months).

What next?

And after that, I’m going to take a break.

You may have seen me discussing this in the comments section and twitter, and I think it’s the right decision. I haven’t really had a substantial break from making games since June last year.

I know why – after the first version of Leanna was released, I had a brief break, but pretty much went straight into rendering the extra gender and ethnicity options. Since that was frustrating, and I didn’t get everything done I wanted to, I went straight into planning the next game. Since I didn’t give my brain time to breath, I’ve been indecisive, starting multiple games but loosing conviction as I haven’t had time to think them through properly.

With this new update, it seems like a good time to take a break and come back with renewed conviction.

So, what is the next game

After Leanna’s big streak, the next game will be dsp3000’s Bridgette Part 3. Don’t expect it too soon though as it’s set to be much bigger than parts 1 and 2. A release date in April seems most likely (though not guaranteed). Expect blog posts from dsp3000 in the coming weeks.

Right now, my brain likes the idea of trying to combine games. I have a plan to combine Marianna and Molly (in the Nascar setting). It’ll be cool, but big. A release date just before Christmas seems likely.

So, what to do between now and then? I want something substantial, but fairly easy and stress free. Photographer part 3 seems like a good choice. It should be quite a fun/relaxed project if I a) Use Poser to render everything rather than IRAY. b) Just have the white, male PC. c) Release it in a few parts.

The basic story would have you trying to save Mr Hughes’s pseudo Playboy company following his death. It’s been acquired by a new character, Mia, and you team up with Maddison to recruit enough new models to keep the business going.

This would be a members only game, but I would transfer an older game (or games) to free to compensate.

That only leaves Crystal Part 3. Next year will be the 10th Anniversary of Crystal and myself’s first game. It seems very appropriate that it could be released then.
