Hey you guys! Happy Birthday to Me! ^_^
So I had a couple of setbacks and it’s been a rough month (for other reasons). That won’t stop me! Sexual Fantasy Kingdom vol. 1 Galaxy Edition is close to being done, and I hope you’ll love it as much as I do. I admit, it’s been hard to maintain my excitement with everything that’s been going on, but I’m doing my best!
I’m still going to take a couple of days off to have fun, because it’s my birthday. At first, I couldn’t think of anything special to post for my birthday, but I thought of something maybe you guys will think is okay:
If anyone wants to send me a Donation today (Saturday the 14th) through let’s say Wednesday (the 18th), I will treat it as a birthday gift from you and buy myself something nice – I’ll take suggestions, I’ll email you about it, and as always, I’ll love you forever and ever!
I just thought, “Why don’t I have a Cyber Monday sale?” so I’m having one! Everything* is an additional 33% off the listed price, Monday and Tuesday Dec. 1st and 2nd only!
*Everything except Pirate Amnesty (Windows version) since you can already name your own price on that one, and Donations because… that would be silly.
From SFK1, let’s call this a cyber monday celebration dance!

Fixed it! Now I can finally get back to work! As I said in the previous post, the front end of the site got hacked (customer and order information is and always was safe, it always goes through my billing company). Now after a lot of fixing, everything seems to be more or less back to normal. Thank you, everyone, for the kind words and support, and for continuing to make purchases and donations even while the repairs were in progress!
I’ve hardly been able to create any new images from my current projects with all this stuff going on, so just for fun I updated my Sketchbook, including this image from an old project:
I’m sorry about the unusual layout of the site! I’m working on fixing it!
1. My 3D program that I use for creating all the artwork, broke for a couple of days. >_< It’s fixed now, on to the next problem:
2. November 14th my website got hacked. Some of you may have noticed, the site got hijacked and a totally different page was displayed. Don’t worry, no order or customer information was touched (that’s not stored on my site, it’s all safe and sound with my billing company). They were basically just some malicious assholes fucking around with my livelihood, like I need that right now. As most of you know, I’m the only one working here, so instead of busily creating artwork, I have to spend all my time fixing this bullshit – which is exactly NOT my area of expertise, so it involves a lot of frustration.
I cleaned up the hacked files, had a nervous breakdown (congrats hackers), and basically took down the site completely until it could be fixed. Then my web host restored the site from a backup… but in order to close the security hole I’ve had to “upgrade” my layout theme, which is not working. At this moment, the preview slider, and more importantly the POSTS are not appearing, so “shop” links aren’t working… I don’t know if this post will appear. But I’ll try and fix that – I’m going to ask for tech support from the theme designer. I don’t know how long this will take to fix. The only part of any post that seems to actually display correctly is the comments – so I guess feel free to try and leave comments.
Again, order and customer information is totally safe. You can absolutely place orders as normal by clicking an order button, and that will work just fine – because that goes through my billing company. The posts aren’t displaying as normal though, so I’ll put up all the order buttons here temporarily (now that everything is fixed, I don’t see a reason to not have the order buttons consolidated here, but I’ll put them after the jump).
The latest news I mean! I wouldn’t refer to myself as the latest person, there are people who are way later than me… maybe.
So let’s jump right in to the news, with the current status of Sexual Fantasy Kingdom vol. 1: Galaxy Edition:
- The magic shop scene is entirely redesigned, recreated, and all animation, sound, and programming are done. CHECK!
- The scene with Shay and the orcs is entirely done including sound and programming. CHECK!
- The scene with Lysandra and the Desert Guardian is done, including a whole new animation, and sound/programming. CHECK!
- The scene with Aisling and the Forest Giant is done/sound/programming, and I added one camera angle, as seen below. CHECK!
- The angel and demonologist scene is completely redesigned and finished with sound/programming. CHECK!
- The scene with the two elves in the forest is done too, as above. CHECK!
- The scene with the tomb-robber and the ghoul has about 1/2 its artwork done. No programming/sound yet but I don’t anticipate any glitches there. It should be done in a few days.
- The BONUS SCENE only has a couple of images done. It’s the biggest scene I’ve ever attempted, with I think eight animations. I’m going to try my best to finish it all this month. I think I can!
For those of you following my news, you’ll remember that I didn’t have some of the voice acting I needed for the bonus scene – I have someone lined up for that. Trust me when I say that her sex noises are adorable – and her voice is reminiscent of Novie’s anyway, so even though November wasn’t able to provide her own voice, at least it’ll be close!
Also note: when I get to within about a week of release, I’m going to close the Pre-Orders. After that, you’ll only be able to get it at full price when it’s released.

Hey you guys, just a quick post for now, because I wanted to wish you all a fun and happy Halloween. I know I had some big talk about a Halloween vampire project with VampYou.com, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to get it done on time – so it’s just a “project” instead of a “Halloween project” now. I think it’ll be pretty great when it’s done though.
I wanted to make a post today in case anyone was waiting for a Halloween special release. I’m afraid you’ll have to get your “special release” through other activities. I’ll post more news and pictures in the next couple of days, about what’s been going on. I have a lot of stuff to talk about, and to show you guys! ^_^
As for important news, SFK1 is still on track to be released in November, or December at the latest. Finally I’ll have a finished product for you guys! Most of the scenes are 100% done, sound and programming and everything. When I get close to the end I’m going to stop accepting Pre-Orders for SFK1 and the price for the released version will be a little higher, so don’t miss out! ^_^
Six years ago today, the original “Sexual Fantasy Kingdom vol. 1: Sex with Creatures” was released on DLsite.com, and sold about 50 copies. In a few weeks I made just enough money to make me curious whether I could do this as a job… Now, I’ve been doing this for six years you guys!
You know the rest of the story. I released “Sexual Fantasy Kingdom vol. 2: Futanari Elves” in December and became a DLsite bestseller within days. That’s when I knew this was my new career. I’ve had some big successes like that one, some commercial failures (such as the greatly underappreciated “Sex Match”, in fact here: CKCO000Q0 use that code to buy it for 50% off until October 27th, while we’re celebrating). I’ve had some windfalls and some droughts, and sometimes I’ve just barely scraped by… but for six years I’ve been living the dream of being a self-employed professional artist.
Some of you have been with me since the beginning, or from very early on. You know that means I love you most of all. You’ve seen how much I’ve grown as an artist over the years, and it’s you who have supported me all this time. So celebrate with all your friends!
I’m alive! I’m healthy! I’m working! I suffer occasional moods, and artistic blocks, and have no money whatsoever. That’s life, and it’s mostly okay.
[Note: Those of you asking about PayPal, please refer to the first question in the FAQ on my About
page. Short answer: no, because they are meanies.]
Gah! You guys, Sexual Fantasy Kingdom vol. 1: Galaxy Edition – I wish it was done! It’s taking so much longer than I ever imagined. It’s looking beautiful, and I’m being a perfectionist and not letting go of every single frame until I’m happy with it, so I hope it’ll be worth it in the end. But still, I want to give it to you!
Remember, because of the delays, if you PRE-ORDER SFK1, or PRE-ORDER SFK5, you pay only the discounted pre-order price, and nothing extra when the product is released! If you haven’t Pre-Ordered yet, please do – because I’m making a product that’s possibly better than anything I’ve done so far, because it’s a significant discount off the final price, and because… I’ll be honest, I need the money really badly. (but so does everybody! I know!)
I still don’t have a release date, but I’ve got to really bust my butt to get it to you guys. As I mentioned before, I already committed to a Halloween project (thinking I’d have plenty of time), and now the deadline on that is eerily looming. But… here’s a nice picture:
