Restarted poll. because I screwed up -___-

I restarted the poll, because I forgot to add one of the options (that had more votes than caster or Blaze). I switched it out with Blaze since she had the least votes in the Poll.

Another option crossed my mind for next time. (Sorry if this is getting complicated)
Do you think I should make it so the initial suggestions and poll are just for characters, but then while the poll is going I take votes on the actual scenario? (Just in the comments, not in a poll)

Or, do you think I should just take suggestions/poll for characters, and then just decide on the scenarios myself?

  1. Oh, now I feel bad for bitching in the comments. You didn't need to do this, since so many people have already voted.

    Concerning your idea, I think you could just take suggestions about the scenes everywhere and then deciding yourself what will be the most interesting. Making another poll would be overkill.

    1. Well, there wouldn't be another poll. It would be votes in the comments, in the same post as the "week-2 poll" post. But maybe that is too complicated.

      I suppose next time I'll try just taking suggestions for characters, but when people respond to votes, they respond with scenario suggestions and I just pick my favorite, with the poll just being a list of characters.

      Also it wasn't bitching, I screwed up and you pointed it out lol

  2. Now that is a sound idea. As long as the least imaginative of us (like me per se, xoxo) could still second scene suggestions from others

  3. Maybe just alternatingly vote on characters OR on scenarios.

    I feel like if you ask "give me any prompt" people are going to suggest excessively specific "That girl from $series, masturbating in the shower, but instead of a dog she has a cat, and from a tree outside the window this kid watches..."

    If you ask for either a character but you pick the specifics, or a situation but it needs to allow variations on character, I figure that should curb the overly specific special requests while still allowing some interesting ideas to come up.

    1. I think I may make it so people just choose the character, and make suggestions about the scenario in the original comment votes. Mostly because for many scenarios I'd have to make changes to them to make it viable to animate.

    2. Like this?
      Vote: Korra

    3. Scene: Bloodbended into doggiestyle by Tarrlok

      Delete
    4. Basically, yeah. The poll option would just say "Korra", and I'd decide among the scenes myself, or possibly combine elements from them.

  5. How about each week you come up with a "scenario of the week" and do a vote on just the character?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wouldn't that limit scenarios, which only make sense for a specific character pr characters from specific franchise?

      Delete
    2. Scenario of the week: Tentacles
      Scenario of the week: doggy style
      Scenario of the week: Machine fucking

      Delete
    3. Okay, let me make something up so you get what I mean. Let's say I would like to vote for Nami from One Piece, raped in the shower by invisible Absalom. Unless I would phrase it as doggy style, it would not fit into the theme, and probably never would.

      Besides, the fetishes you named are so common that unless Kyrieru ends this awesome idea very, very soon (god forbid), there is a very nice chance that he will have a shot at them relatively soon.

      Delete
    4. And all I'm saying is you don't need your vote to be that specific. I'm proposing we vote ONLY for the character in whatever type of scene Ky decides to do that week, be it tentacles or breast expansion or a position. If he adds more, like invisible shower rape, so be it. But just because someone likes Asuka or Sailor Moon doesn't mean we need 15 votes for various iterations of scene for each character. He can already have the scene planned out in his mind and how he's going to pull it off, and we get to choose who goes into the scene. It's a lot easier to vote for at the cost of someone's very specific fetish and direction not being fulfilled.

      As for deciding the animation and scene specifics, perhaps that can be a vote for the patreon voters, since it will be fewer people and can be more of a raffle.

  6. I see Asuka up there. Is it Asuke from Evangelion, or Asuka from Tekken?

      I didn't know how much room I was going to have, but I should have wrote that at least -__-

  7. Wow, great choices. Asuka is just Asuka and I think she fits well with Kyrieru style girls like Noaika and the girl from Kurovadis. Malon has dem milk jugs(maybe the wallmasters could milk her). Caster is <3 as well.

    Can't say I care for the squids now, because I'm a kid now...

    I'll see myself out ;'D

  8. Now, I find all those high numbers suspicious, but does anyone else find it ridiculous Marie jumped overnight from second last place to firsrt by a large margin?

  9. wtf, marie from splatoon is ugly as hell, who came up with this crap

    1. Please, vote for Asuka, we can still fix this...

  10. The vote should be for the character and the scene can just be a suggestion for you to consider if you want.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I know they got alot of votes but, two characters from the same franchise...in the same poll. Dunno that bugged me, doesn't help that I never heard of splatoon until the poll threads, haha

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes! Somehow you guys got Asuka back to even with the splatoon girl. Keep it up!

  13. I think that voting for the scenario in the comments would be better, so as more people can get their opinions in. Though would ould people then respond to the comments upvoting it, or would you pick out the scenario that you liked the best? You didn't really make it that clear.

    ReplyDelete
  14. "Alright, I'm gonna start doing a thing. It may or may not devolve into utter chaos."

    Well we're certainly getting there Kyrieru.

  15. And now, Marie suddenly outran Asuka once again, and keeps itself steadily just a few votes above how many votes Asuka has. Funny how that happens, right mr. haxorz ? :<

  17. I'd like to see some Mercedes from Odin Sphere. Maybe being held up by her hands and getting harassed by a plany/tentacle monster.

  18. do 1.4k people really browse this blog

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah, I think you're going to need a strawpoll or something, or just scrap the poll idea. There's no way over 1000 votes happened in two days that were split evenly between asuka and marie.

  20. The poll was a mistake. -Kyrieru

  21. gotta go for lunch, keep voting everyone XD

    ReplyDelete
  22. Maybe it would be for the best, if, based on the ideas in this thread, you chose personally a winner, with the most creative scenes people suggested in comments, and then chose you favorite scene amongst them. Then at least, the spammer has to be creative to get his ideas through, which might actually be for the better XD

    1. Kinda like that, the voting does seem to have run off the rails with the poll. And this way Kyieru kinda has the whole auditorium to pick from.
      "Blah tentacles are over done. Let's do a consensual scene with a frog!"
      Now the madness can commence.

      Delete
    2. By creative, I did not necessarily mean crazy. For example, using the universe the character comes from to your advantage. Tvtropes has a page for that, called: power perversion potential :3

  23. I would like an option that said "Please work on your game instead"

    1. Boo, everyone needs downtime. And unlike mine, Kyieru's downtime keeps us preoccupied.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, let Kyrieru overwork himself overtime, so that he cannot look at boobs never again, and never make a game again, right. Now that would be a win, dingus.

      Delete
    3. The inevitable comment.

      You realize he directly addressed this issue earlier, stating that these drawings/posts/polls aren't consuming game development time and they're in another time slot, right?

      Delete
    4. I'll admit I'm slightly unhappy, given that it's been over 9 months since I preordered there's really been no major update on the game's progress. I'm fairly certain that Kyrieru has said that he hasn't been focusing on the game much at all during this time, either, so it's not that he's overworking himself in the strict sense that he's working hard on Noaika.

      I'm not going to chew him out over it since I know it's not his main job, but I won't be donating/preordering anything of his in advance again, mainly because I start to feel restless when I keep seeing a bunch of updates that have nothing to do with something I've invested in and I'm left wondering if it'll even be out in another year. Better to just wait and buy it when it actually comes out from now on.

      Delete
    5. I've never said that I wasn't focusing on the game. What I said back then was:

      1. I'm going to try harder to address my health issues instead of just forcing myself to work through them, because that only makes them worse.
      2. Noaika is going to be a larger scale project, so I need to stop putting hobbies off "until Noaika is done", Because I just end up being artistically burnt out all the time. I want to enjoy development more.

      Basically, I'm taking my time with Noaika instead of just rushing through it and doing the minimum amount of work again. In the beginning, Noaika was a bog-standard "3-4 enemies, 3 bosses, 3 areas" kind of of game. It's not that kind of game anymore. Hell, the resolution of the characters isn't even the same as it was in the demo.

      As for the fact that I did pre-orders, I never should have done them in the first place, and I still regret it. Back then would have been the time for a Patreon and animations, or the time to work on some month-long $2 games. As I've said before, I plan on giving those who pre-ordered quite a lot for free after Noaika, if only to feel a little better about the whole thing -__-

    3. I mean, wouldn't it look the other way around from the point of view of someone who's voting for Marie?

      For frame of reference,
      https://i.gyazo.com/5600235b006142de37f4595afc9eb95c.png

      There have been more far more people than there have been votes, and both Asuka and Marie had 200+ votes within a couple hours of the re-poll. The fact that they're going neck and neck doesn't seem that absurd to me -__-

      Delete
    4. Actually, I suppose that's not true, those are page views, not unique visitors. I suppose I should look into some analytics.

      Delete
  26. Maybe it would now that you mention it.

    I just know that when I went to sleep for a few hours, Asuka was wining, when I woke up Marie was winning by a long fucking shot. The others were slowly gaining up. But after Asuka got as many votes as Marie, Marie starting to keep a steady lead of just a few votes.

  27. lolz, if anyone is hacking, it is probably so that there is a tie and you have to do two animations ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  28. It's pretty easy to vote multiple times btw by just going into incognito mode on chrome and refreshing the page. I think strawpoll tracks IPs to prevent people voting multiple times or something.

  30. People should stop being drama queens. Some people in all camps probably voted more than one time. So it evened out.

    You wanted a poll, you got one. Stop giving kyrieru headaches.

  31. Would you ever consider taking a commission to have something like this done?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I might, however for the amount of time it takes the price wouldn't really be something that most people would want to spend on a single H-animation. Unlike the few commissions I've done for a couple indie games in the past, people wouldn't be making money from a finished product, so it would be sort of hard to justify it.

      Delete
    2. What kind've prices we talkin', here?

      Delete
    3. Anywhere from $50-130, depending on how long it takes. An animation could take anywhere from 5 to 10 hours, spread across a week.

      Delete
    4. That's something I could get behind. If you /were/ available down the line for a commission, how would one get in touch for such a thing?
