Working the nightshift

I've got the time, privacy, mood, and some caffeine, so I decided to have a little 'working on the new game'-marathon. The night is about to start in my timezone, and since sleep is for the weak I will be spending the night working on the game (while updating this blogpost with stuff about the game/my progress, screenshots, and random rambling).

I've finished the start for my DollProject work (a few weeks ago already, actually), so I can concentrate on this project entirely (well, technically I could make new 3DCG stories or continue writing my second short novel, but I'll stick with College for now). Unfortunately I haven't heard anything back about it, so if I don't hear anything in the next few weeks I'll just publish it on my Pixiv.

This is kind of sudden so I don't expect anyone to happen take a look here in the hours I will be doing this, but if anyone does, feel free to comment and ask anything you'd like to know/see and I'll answer. So if you'd like to see a screenshot with a certain fetish or character, you can ask and if I have something ready that doesn't spoil too much I'll make a screenshot of it and update this post.

Enough rambling for now, time to get some work done.

Update #1:
Since my latest screenshots were all about Isis and my last two weren't during the 'action', I've decided to post a screenshot of a scene with Freya now since I've already worked on her route as well.
Freya Scene
Although you can't actually see it's Freya (you'll have to trust me on my word!), this scene/slide felt like the most interesting thing to post. This scene took some work because it has other slides that aren't varations but entirely new drawings, but I felt like making some scenes with more effort put into them since I take shortcuts quite often (by only showing what is absolutely necessary, for example). The scene I'm working on right now also is one of those scenes with a little extra effort into them, but this one is for the main route again.

Update #2:
Still working on the main route scene that's a little more work than the average scene, but almost done with the first slide of it (just have to color the lineart).

After this the next scene for both routes will actually be about the same kink, so I'll have a little more trouble than usual deciding what to work on next. Leaning towards the main route since I've reached the point where girls besides Isis are introduced, so working on that will allow me to finally show me some of the other girls soon.

Update #3:
I wanted to post a more clearly explicit picture for once, so here's a topless one of Isis with a little twist. I put it in a link for people who want to be spoiled as little as possible.

I suck at cropping screenshots. And again with that same background! Too much is going on at Isis' apartment at this point in the game. :P

Meanwhile I finished the first slide, took me a little longer to finish it than planned because I had to do a full restart to resolve some issues.

Update #4:
I just realized I haven't actually said what name for the game I chose from all the suggestions I got (thanks again, had I hard time picking one), so here's a screenshot of the most basic version of the main menu (with the title of the game on it).
Main menu

Update #5:
Suns are about to rise and hands are about to hurt, so I'll take a break for now. I didn't get even that single CG event scene done, but that's probably because I went with the one that is a lot of work. :P

I'll probably do something like this again sometime (of course I won't stop working in the meantime), but planned a little better and longer so I can actually work through a pile of stuff. Like a 24-hour marathon (with breaks, though :P) or a fulltime workweek.

Like they say, sleep is the cousin of death, so more power to ya man. And I can't help but be amped about the fact that you're currently putting all your focus on the College eroge :D But honestly, I don't have too many questions because I'd like to go into the game fresh.

I am kinda curious as to what kind of fetishes Diana will play towards (if you'd rather keep that info secret I'm fine with that). And I believe three months ago you said that the story will have a singular path that will break off towards one character (if you make the right choice[s]) and then return to the main linear storyline. So, since that flowchart was made during the beginning of this game about three months ago, I'm wondering if that has changed in any way, or if there have been any other notable changes to the game along the way.

Re: JManime

Diana is probably the one character I'd rather not reveal what fetish(es) she plays towards. I've left hints so it's possible to guess, but if you don't know before you play the game and reach the point where it is revealed the impact is probably stronger (mostly for those actually into that specific fetish).

The game indeed still has a 'main path', with at least 2 branches (at the moment). The first one being the shorter route based around Freya, which I'm currently working on simultaneously with the main route. This route will not return to the main route though, since I want it to have its own ending. But Freya will not be excluded from the main route, and some other characters won't be (completely) excluded from her route. The other currently planned split is basically a secret early end to the main route, but I'm still thinking about how exactly it will be unlockable.

The biggest chance to the main route is probably that I no longer have an end for it. At first, I did have a scene in mind to end it with, but after thinking on how to include certain suggestions I decided to let the main route go on beyond that fairly open ending I had originally in mind. After what would have been the end of the game I now have a little more room to play around with alternative/optional scenes, but I also have less specific of an idea for one or more possible endings at the moment.

This is all great news man! :)

First off, the Freya screen shot is fantastic, I love how thick and plush her thighs are and the fact that you're making it your goal to avoid shortcuts and put effort into all the CG images just makes me that much more eager to see the eroge (Very nice touch on the striped panties as well). I'm also excited to hear that you are planning on including other characters within Freya's path, as well as giving Freya's path its own ending.

Not to mention the fact that you also have multiple endings planned, honestly I was already thrilled that you're planning two endings (Freya's and the main one), but to hear that you might add more near the end definitely spikes my interest. Nice job man, this all sounds amazing so far, keep it up! :D

Re: JManime

Thank you. I meant that I'm trying to avoid using too many shortcuts though and putting some more effort in the scenes that I think need it, though. I do still take some shortcuts so it won't take a ridiculous amount of time before release. Ideally, I'd like to release the game no more than 4 months from now.

My bad, that's actually how I read your comment, my praise just got kind of carried away :P and any shortcuts you're able to take that helps make the game making process easier for ya, I'm all for. Also, 4 months sounds good man, I'll be looking forward to it.

I hope Freya is the unaware type. Like the character got asleep on freya's cushion and freya without knowing sits there and heh... if you know what I mean...
