  1. Hey Vortex00 Are you a Girl ?

  2. Hi Vortex, I can´t see the stuff for Patreons on december neither january, where can I find it? Thank you

  3. what is the password ? I just copied and pasted and now I cant find it again . I know its something like vortexisbackatit but not sure exactly.

    • I don’t post passwords here. either ask on patreon, or google “advanced rogue intelligence assault password”. Check gamesofdesire search results, you don’t even have click the links to see it.

  4. I cannot access the patreon content (password and hentaifan) although I still am pledging and my pledge for January must have gone through (I have enough in my prepaid credit card). I could do this previously without any problem but after 2 days it just says marketing collateral. Is there a problem with my account?

    • I need to investigate what is going on, patreon might have changed something.
      or it might have gotten screwed up when I deleted all the postmeta.
      send me a message on patreon also.

  5. what the password for 2.3.1?

  6. Hey bro. Where can I access the music on your website. I saw it was rearranged and I can’t find it.

  7. Select from the list the characters that appear in ARIA…Do you guys know the answer of it? I need help5555

  8. i have play UMCC it interesting i feel like it kind miss the cheating part of game name you know like being caught by maiko boyfriend as she fucking another guy and they start fighting over her if there both naked lol and same with girls catch maiko fucking there boyfriend she and maiko start catfight like give that feel being cheaters. huh may you add something in update for it where like maiko always boy to sneak into boy lockers beside hide and wait in locker i don’t know how put this she take peek in boy’s shower room see boys like compare cock sizes to each others or cockfight/sword fights each others in showers that turn her on to where thing in school sex club or her home where maiko need two guys with equal relationship with her to fight over her. what do you think of it would be cool for update 5 if your still doing offline update for UMCC

    • Thanks, the “cheater” part of classroom cheater referred more to using sex to quickly gain stats, money, or to complete certain minigames.

      also I’m not sure how many people want to see a penis sword fight heh.

      • Your welcome , so it that kind of cheaters huh i thought was about school drama of cheaters and jealousy n school hentai type settle . You be surprised about that heh i thought of penis sword fight as typical sexual contest that sometimes happened in school like hentai settle you know would hurt try it and do little test demo of it ?

  9. you could explain or see what up with the Register spam test i click on name characters that i see in your aria game i keep get error on it ? aren’t jeo , phia , Arielle , linda are characters that appear in aria right ?

  10. I have a save from ARIA 2.2 but it’s not working on ARIA 2.3. How do I fix this? Also, where do I find the battle codes?

  11. How do the test work in UMCH? Whenever I click something I just get a question mark.

  12. What is the name of a city, where the events of UMCH occur?

  13. Does Jeni love anyone of the boys?

    • Nope. Closest thing would be her brother David thoguh. She reeducates him through sex. And offers herself to him so he wont go around harassing other girls. like attacking girls at night and forcing them to do lewd stuff. Or tricking a few of the oddballs like Dizzy into sex. But she is busy with other stuff like boxing and cafe so she isn’t always there to handle it when he gets horny.

      • Wow, some incest there. Didn’t know about that. I like it. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

        • There whole family is incest. but the relationship between David and Jeni can be deduced form playing both UMCC and what’s currently assembled fo[r UMCH. Most notably for UMCH in the socialize parts.

          • I see.
            I didn’t play UMCC a lot. I was planning to finish it after UMCH will become just as big.

  14. Hello everyone,

    I’m mostly playing UMCC/H so i don’t know all the characters that appear in ARIA.

  15. Will condoms in UMCH be supposed to collect cum or will it also serve as a means of contraception? Are you planning to add pregnancy to the game?

  16. What is your time zone, Vortex?

  17. To Vortex

    Who’s your favorite character that you’ve made?

    From Me

  18. Hey Vortex.

    I think there’s an issue with Patreon. It keeps deducting $20 from my card to you every time I edit the pledge. I’m afraid to even touch the edit button right now, but it appears under failed transactions in my details. Could we resolve this situation?

    • I would imagine it is working as intended.

      my patreon page is among a few that are testing a beta feature coming to all patreon accounts that want to use it called upfront charging. Which means if you subscribe to a tier, it charges you for that tier the moment you sign up for it, instead of waiting until the beginning of next month.

      also if you change tiers back down, the charge will remain for whatever the highest tier you did until next month. As you change tiers it is trying to charge again due to upfront charging system but recognizing that it doesn’t need to charge you again.

      personally for me this helps to solve a few problems I have of bot accounts mining patreon pages for content. it is why all of my stuff lately is off site. And it helps against those who will edit a pledge to the highest tier, DL all the stuff, then move back down before a charge is made. That is not fair to my higher tier patrons.

      • Wow. That’s a crazy exploit. I can’t believe they ever allowed that.
        It’s logical I guess, because I was aware of the issue with non-payment. But trading around tiers from bottom to top is like…

  19. Vortex, what languages do you speak?

  20. Could you plz help me find Umi 3D online?
    Do I have to register somewhere? Thx

  21. Curious question. Are you planning to add H-scenes which involve different characters like Complete Research in Dr.Natan’s room (or showering, beach and light forest)? Because one of the most enjoyable things I did in UMCC was bring every girl with me to the cafe. I understand that means you would need assets for all of them, which is why I was just wondering.

  22. supercaboose

    in aria in area 5 in the walkthrough it says there is a scene where jeo and tt surround another woman and a h scene is unlocked how do i earn that h scene. i am playing version 2.6 full whish i got after becoming a patreon donor

  23. no right and wrong way to have a fantasy. let people live dude.
    whatever you claim to understand, the fact remains that myself, and plenty of others are hetero, and is fine with remi.

  24. Longtime fan here! I actually just got a Gear VR for your videos a couple days ago. They look great! I would love more. There’s more VR content out there of course but nobody makes stuff like you do.

    • Oh, sorry, forgot my question!

      Is there any way, like a keyword, to find videos meant for VR?

      Kind of like 360, except I could do with 180, you know?

      Maybe it’s just “VR” but I thought I’d ask. Thanks again!

      Oh and also please for the love of god more VR stuff from you

  25. By the way, seems I’ve found Leyah’s IRL-sister:

  26. Hey i getting a problem with patreon. in the payment appeers Something Went Wrong.

  27. Dragontiger01

    To Vortex00
    i like UMCC so i wanted to ask when you well release the next version of it my pation bar is already empty i cant wait anymore ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ
    ( i feel like a child asking when my birthday presnt well come when it is not my birthday yet)

    • As I know, UMCC is already finished. Right now Vortex’s working on other projects. And the closest game to UMCC is UMCH.

      • Dragontiger01

        oups sorry i was gonna say UMCH

        • I can’t name the exact date, but the Patreon version of UMCH should be uploaded within this week. I don’t know about the public one, though.

          • Think its been around 5 months since the last public release, right?

          • Something like that.
            However, usual updates of the games come out every one or one and a half months and can be acquired via Patreon.

          • public will always take longer, but it’ll get there. It is impossible for me to know a date. Even me just casually estimating some date, or set a personal goal to release something, people will overreact and assume it was something I promised signed in blood and put my life on it.

            As Neferis mentioned it is at least monthly updated on patreon at some point during each month, usually within the first whole week of the new month. For this month that would be tomorrow. The benefit there is I release it wherever I’m at with it. and people understand it is unfinished. I can’t do that for public, even if the version is from the previous month. Not yet a least.

            the problem I have with public is people unfamiliar with the game don’t seem to comprehend what a “alpha” is. from what I can tell people are looking for a “beta” and it is not that yet. last alpha release most of responses I got were “it’s just a bunch of mini-games” even thoguh wrote in the game the story is not added yet. Also that cafe minigame is too hard. People on patreon understand that the game is unfinished. And though people here probably also realize this, me even just releasing the game here will spread to other places where people will assume the game is intended to be a collection of mini-games with the main one being too hard.

            So I am taking my time to post it when it is ready. I don’t want potential patreons to look at the game as assume it is something it is not. It doesn’t need to be finished but needs to be further along than it is currently. It needs to be at a point which I call the “core” game. which is the game with the main story scenes more or less finished.

            Also some people on patreon have issues completing some of the minigames. I’d rather a limited number of people tell me about a problem than people complaining about it across several forums and me running around trying to damage control.

  28. This Renji guy – he seems like a type who Jeni would possibly be able to love. What do you think about it, Chief?

    P.S.
    Private Messages. 🙂

    • suggest lines for it.

      will check PMs after I update content section.

      • Before I suggest any lines, here’s a screenshot which shows how Jeni rides Renji at the cafe:

        View post on imgur.com

        The question is: is this scene supposed to be canonical?

        • No. she is not talking about him specifically she can say that about anyone. the guys sex experience/difficultly in the cafe are randomized each mini-game. Jeni could get that same dude again but this time might say he would easily cum.

          • I see.
            And the fact of Jeni having sex with Renji at cafe for his money – is it itself canonical or not?

          • Renji, Cory, Drake, etc. anyone of them could appear as the client. she could even be fucking Chester or Trey and she hates them both. Like wise they can appear for Maiko, Leyah or Pattie. So yes it is possible but not canonical in sense that is it special in anyway more so than any other bg character.

          • Got it.
            It’s important for me to understand if these two could possibly have sex before.

    How do I play the most recent Umichan Maiko Classroom Havoc game and what version would it be

  30. I registered but I can not login. why the website?

  31. I registered but I can not log in to the website. sorry I write wrong before.

  32. SimothyBronut

    Hey Vortex. I’m a fan of your work, I enjoy the intricate storylines and characters designs and I’ve been pretty impressed with your latest artwork, especially relating to ARIA.
    Do you do this artwork yourself?
    Also, will this art be animated? Pinoytoons stuff was always in motion which was what I loved about ARIA. Will the same dynamic stuff be done for the new characters and scenes?

    • I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “this” art. which art? It could be mines but is most likely ttrops art. And whatever “this” was, maybe or may not be animated. if it is UMCH then yes, if it is agent trainer then not atm, and alt aria is a mix of both, rookie I plan to animate. I am also unsure of what you mean by new characters,

  33. Hello Vortex, this has probably already been asked, I do not own a credit card, yet i do wish to get the newest releases and of course support 5 dollars( Or whatever the equilavent of that is in euros) How can I do this? since Patreon isnt allowing me to do it without a credit card because its an adult project so to say

  34. my apologies i wasnt specific i meant for UMCH

  35. when will new version of UMCH come out??

  36. but when is that like what date?

  37. Spoiler alert! is the agent at the end of UMCH actually beatable at this point?

  38. I am rather confused by the storyline going on here. I’ve poked around to try and find something that explains what games go where, but have only really seen vague outlines. So far I have played the version of UMCC that is on Newgrounds, Umichan: Maiko, Umichan: Maiko v2, the slapping one, and Snowball Holiday. I briefly started ARIA and was totally lost story-wise, and now I am worried about playing around with the other games.

    I know I could just treat them like hentai games and ignore story, but it seems like you’ve got something good going here and I want to know how it all fits together.

    • take a look here at “the Story behind UMCH and ARIA” section at the bottom.

      Going out of town, Pill Results, and the lore behind UMCH and ARIA

      the part where I start posting links is basically the chronological order of stuff.

      starting at UMCC and going to ARIA will be confusing for number of reasons I would imagine.
      so I have a few notes that are important if you are trying to dive into the lore in it’s current state.

      one would be not understanding GemCo. They are some company who has monopoly on energy with shady executives. You pick this up in various places like Semitix and Daughter of Eve, and Amp side story, and from Amp and Goo dialogues in ARIA. and now you can see some of the the execs behavior in UMCH also. you will miss this is you haven’t played/read any of these.

      GemCo also has a academy where they train agents. you can think of it as a different school similar to the school in UMCC. but the GemCo school is little more military style since they also train agents for various combat situations and learn more stuff than at a normal school. This can most notably be seen in the visual novel The Rookie in the link i posted.

      Also I think most people might miss the fact the “Jeo” in ARIA is “Jinru” one of the students from UMCC the Maiko can interact with. Arielle mentioned it right at the start of ARIA but that is it so it i easy to miss.

      UMCC also is missing a key event that explains the connection to ARIA where Jeo gets framed. again it is mentioned in the opening dialogue of ARIA but players actually never see it in UMCC. it is in UMCH now however at the end, which is sort of a remake of UMCC.

      hope it helps but feel free to ask more questions.

      • Thank you for all the information. This definitely helps and I will begin going through things in the proper order. I’d kind of gathered that GemCo had something going on, but it is good to know that I am not supposed to know entirely what they are doing.

        Thank you again. Loving your games. Played Vandread Love Quest back in 2010 when it got released on newgrounds, and Umichan: Maiko at about the same time. It is crazy coming back and checking in to see how much you have done since then. Keep up the great work!

    • The overall story of Vortex’s games involves time travel, which is inherently confusing to a lot of people. The important thing to realize is that all of the games made by Vortex are in the same universe but not neccesarily in the same time line. Without giving too much away in terms of spoilers, bad things eventually happen to Maiko. In an effort to prevent this Annie and Sixx travel back in time and give her a hairpin in the hopes of stopping this. This creates the alternate timeline in which the events of UMCC/UMCH and ARIA take place. It’s bascally the plot of the show Quantum Leap. If you don’t know what Quantum Leap is, then you are way younger than me and you should go watch it on Netflix right now. It’s worth it and you’ll be a better person for it it. If you don’t know what alternate timelines are, then go watch Back to the Future 2. Dr. Emmet L. Brown explains it better than I ever could.

  39. Hey Vortex00, would you mind if I programmed an application to create custom characters for UMCC that were introduced in the 3rd update and leave a link here so that others can use it?

  40. Hey, I tried to register to this site, I filled out all the required areas, but when I went to my email to go to the activation link, there was no email for me to click on. I even pressed to resend the activation link, but nothing. My inbox is empty (Even checked spam) and still nothing. I need help.

  41. I know this is very much irrelevant to this video, but what is the status of the rest of your work? You haven’t really posted very much about whats going on in terms of the big picture. I understand you’re focusing a lot on your trainer game right now (I’ve been super busy and I just looked at it and it seems cool) and I guess “The Rookie” project died. Again, I might have missed something but you haven’t done a general update in quite a while.

    • right now I am working on savor the moment stuff for UMCH. I turned off the trainer game so i can focus on it. the rookie day 2 script is done, the needed character art is done, but animations are not. however that game overall has very low priority.

  42. Hiya. I’ve been playing through the games in the storyline order you linked to me a little while back on:

    Going out of town, Pill Results, and the lore behind UMCH and ARIA

    It is really great stuff. I have been enjoying it immensely. I really like the world and story you have going and the H scenes are good as well. Currently I have a question regarding two of the games.
    1. Has the top-down shooter Advance Rogue Intelligence Operation been made yet? I see the link you provided there just goes to ARIA rather than a separate game.
    2. Is JLCK: Gheist Prologue or a playthrough video along the lines of what you have for Ralamar crystal hunter around anywhere? I assume not considering you mention it wasn’t available as of the time that post was made, just making sure you haven’t released it in the meantime. For some reason I find it a bit difficult to follow the updates on this site and keep missing things.I assume Ralamar Elemental Guardians is in the same situation as the Gheist Prologue.

    Thank you in advance. Loving the games so far and want to make sure I am not missing any of them.

  43. I have the screen shots but they dont work in the game what do I do to make them work?

  44. Hello, I am wondering if you have any need for female adult voice actresses for any of your projects? If so, I would invite you to contact me at candy@voicelikecandy.com and we can discuss your needs. I do NSFW voiceovers quite often for animation and SFM community, and just happened across your Patreon page, so I thought I would reach out. (I don’t frequent this site, so I probably won’t see a reply here, best to just email me directly.) Thanks!

  45. Hello Vortex! First of all I really love your work! The animations, dialogues, musics, scenarios… everything is great! <3 Tho I was just wondering something, There are less options than in the other UMCH game, or is it just me that is missing some files? I mean by that that we can't walk through somewhere with a friend, nor that we can invite them at home or even chat with them and ask them the questions like we could before (video games, books, hentai, sports, etc.) Is it normal? Or at least for now maybe?
    Thank you in advance and keep going with your awesome job! <3

    • Thanks for question. in terms of amount of things in a side by side comparison, yes UMCC has more because I worked on it longer. UMCH is a much newer game that does not yet have the same time investment.

      The items you described were intentionally not added to UMCH for various reasons. in general, UMCC was a bit too much of a sandbox where the focus dissolved into “I wonder what happens if I do this random thing” instead of “I wonder what happens next in the story” if that makes any sense.

      But specifically, the question wheel is not added because the goal is that you will learn relevant things about the character through their dialogue and quest scenes in UMCH. Maiko already knows everyone at the school so it doesn’t really seem appropriate for her to be asking them random question like in UMCC.

      The characters don’t follow Maiko because they have their own activities they are engaged in. Pattie has the most time to follow Maiko and it is reflected in UMCH at various areas of the game where Pattie is present.

      also canon Maiko doesn’t really have a desire to invite several people back to her house for sex. This was a significant lore breaking thing in UMCC that was only added by request, but it got a bit out of control to the point where I really started regretting ever adding it in.

  46. Is it possible to have the motion data from the mmd dances
    Tipsy
    Bout’ It
    It makes me ill
    Cookie Jar
    Thanks

  47. Ok, thanks for the answer.If you choose by the way to edit them,because they are a hell of a sexy dances please do!
    Also,do you make coreographies by your self too?If yes, would you consider making the Dead or Alive exreme 3 dances for mmd?

    and adding this little bit in the sequence too

    Thanks!

  48. Hi, I downloaded Umiko: Classroom Cheaters the offline versions update 3, and I can’t use it. I don’t know why that happens. Do you know that happens?

    Thank you.

  49. Hello. I would like to ask you about something, I read that if fans had ideas to add to the story (Specifically ARIA) that you’d be willing to listen to such ideas? If so, I wanted to run these two ideas by you and see what you think of them. If you’d be willing to spare a moment then great, if not, then no harm done. Thank you and have a wonderful evening.

  50. Can you add the ejaculation scenes to the custom scene editor?

  51. Chris is gay in UMCH? Or why he have appearance effeminate?

    (I hope not to offend anyone with the question)

  52. could you resend umch please as I cant download old one thanks

  53. Do you have any plans for an UMCH scene maker like the Aria maker?

  54. downloaded umichan but it does not have a start button how do i get it? yhanks

  55. just get a pink page but thanks

  56. internet explorer I unzipped them windows ten is my operating system sadly got a new computer

    • I have windows 10 on my laptop i can see what’s up with it today. i can also recommend using the included flash player for windows. and opening the umch3.swf from the flash player.

  57. Is it possible to input different swfs as backgrounds to the Aria maker? I remember you putting a tutorial for how to do that with UMCH scenes but I can’t find that right now.

    • yeah it’s possible. I actually used aria as the example with a UMCH animation. it is in art of deception thread

      [video src="http://spiralvortexplay.com/svp/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/aria_custom_bg.mp4" /]

  58. Hi vortex was just wondering if there was going to be a public release for ARIO?

  59. I know it’s a long task to ask, but any chance there could be retagging of posts? Specifically, I check back here only a few times a month, and really like the different wallpapers, I think they’re just awesomely done. Buuut, looking through ‘2D Art’ it’s page after page of test limbs and partial artwork which is good as it comes across the feed, but not conducive to actually browsing the artwork of the characters.

    Just trying to start a thought, maybe. Slightly more detailed or even just MORE tags could help people like me browse your content, and I don’t know how much or at all you go back through it, but it’s a thought.

  60. Just a quick question.
    Is interracial an idea for UMCH?

    • it’s the first sex scene in UMCH.
      tried this more heavily back in UMCC and got stuck in limbo. I found that it doubled, tripled, etc the work of anything based on number of skin shades added. So for the most part when it comes of UMCH I just stick what I refer to as default anime color for now.

  61. I’m having trouble getting the afluent quest started in umch.16, the guide just says to go to mall. Is there a step I’m missing?

  62. tell me please how you learned to draw?

    • mostly self taught. just look at something and google different ways how to do it heh. then practice at it until you get find a way that works for you, and the result is something you like. I took 2 art classes in high school but was doodling and stuff way before then. the classes helped be draw more realistic stuff like faces, objects, and animals, etc. and once you can draw stuff realistically i help you draw anime’ish stuff a little better because you notice issues with facial construction and anatomy, etc.

  63. Hey great work on ARIA, I mean literally I love playing it and like all good things want more and more.

    My question is have you ever thought about done a breeding or brothel based game upon your universe?. Perhaps a space station that you could turn into a brothel and have an influence how various events play out like assisting various organisations etc etc. Curious because so many brothel/breeding based games fail due to lack of creativity or simply development issues. Your work is impressive and sure you universe could fit something like this with ease.

    • many thanks glad you like it. As for the game idea, yes the lore supports it, but I doubt I could do it with ease, or even at all, for various reasons I can detail if you want. You mention so many fail for various reasons, so if there is failed one out there you know about where I could acquire the source I could see what I can do from there.

      • There was actually a super successful (initially) one that recently just failed because of a partnership struggle and the artists no longer thinking the project was viable or plausible. Their Patreon was getting an absurd amount of money per month to work on it. I think that might be the one hes referring to, Breeding Seasons or something like that?

        One of the original people bought the other guys out and is trying to recreate something similar now. Its called [Something] Meadows. Cant remember the full title. I may be off in the numbers but I thought I read they had over a million dollars in funding, and still failed. It was all over the internet because of how controversial it was.

        The other ones that come to mind are Strumpets, like ive brought up before and theres a newer one thats called Brothel City thats like an actual base building game with H-oriented buildings, units, art, ect.

        • I am aware of breeding seasons and I think it is called cloud meadows for the other one.
          as for me, long story short, I’m not in a position to work on this kind of game. Presently, I would definitely have “development issues” as Andrew mentioned heh. It is something to think about for later.

          • Yeah breeding season is what I was referring to on the breeding side and sim bro is a decent brothel base, definitely would consider it for the future though as it is obviously demanding but financially can be rewarding and to be honest sure you would acquire way more paetron wise. Back on topic though your universe could seriously milk that genre. As far as development issues go, the increase in finance would surely secure you someone familiar with that area. Either way dude your awesome keep up the good work 🙂

          • I’m not convinced it would be financially rewarding tbh, for various reasons including but not limited to, me likely not having all kinds of different fetishes in my work, having a serious concern about story cohesion, and my preference to stick to human looking characters. But as I said it could be something interesting later as I create and get proficient at making user interactive games. Could be cool to have sex scenes with people create character and what not. But I am not there yet. Agent trainer and a few other games I am working on is laying the ground work for me to make stuff like that later.

          • As much as I am all for diversifying the genre and ARIA universe, I think I am leaning more on Vortex’s side for this particular topic. I like the idea of a brothel based ARIA game, like a space station or something in an ‘experimental’ setting like GemCo and Goo, but I dont think I would be very fond of something along the lines of Breeding Seasons. It just doesnt fit the universe in my opinion.

            That being said and not even considering the work load it would require, theres only so much one person can do, and when you tack more and more people onto a project you have more and more personalities colliding which can create a separation of ideals. This is what ultimately lead that game to fail.

  64. Are your UMCH MMD models available for download?

  65. Hello,

  66. Hello Vortex, I am Chris form Force Thirteen, who is the girl named Zytra? Can you give me MMD model DL of her please?

  67. remembermethistime

    Where can I find the music used during the sex scenes for Aria?

  68. Hello, what is the full name for Zytra?

  69. Brothel based game (cough) (cough). lol

    Curious is Aria now complete?. If so will we see a similar or a sequel in the same style?.

    • If by same style you mean a game mechanic of a strategy game, and some kind of character management, and lots of sex scenes in the game then yes. if you mean art style, pinoytoons is working on other stuff and has plans for stuff after that so it is not likely because it is not something that was discussed.

  70. Hello, do you have any youtube channel and what is your title for your youtube channel?

  71. Do you do commission work for base models to use with MMD? I don’t mean your private models btw.

  72. I got a Problem in umch18. Maiko keeps saying her hair is a mess, so i cant work on the cafè. Can anyone tell me why, or what can i do to fix her hair? Thanks

  73. @IceBubble Maiko’s hair normally appears on top of the screen. If it is unkempt, all you need to do is click the top, and the hair gets itself done. If the hair doesn’t appear, use the phone’s “settings” option. There you can use the “hair visible” button to show her hair. You also have an option for Maiko to auto-fix her hair, but i don’t use it.

  74. Just curious as to how long did it take you to have a sustainable income from your adult games. How long have you had sustainable income. Is Patreon your only income source? Any recommendations to a beginner starting off?

    If you have time feel free to explain in detail, give some pros and cons to your work ^.^

    • I don’t think I’m right person to ask because I have been making hentai stuff well before patreon existed. So when it did exist, I wasn’t starting from something brand new.
      had sustainable income early in 2016. as for advice starting off, I don’t have much to say for just general stuff. I’m better at perhaps identifying specific problems after you have already started. I’d just say to do what you enjoying doing, and not give up on it. I’ve seen patreons not really grow well for long time then suddenly explode. also it good to realize that not everyone will like whatever it is you want to do. What one person likes is exactly what another won’t like.

      • Well said. Especially the adult industry, there are a lot of preferences out there. To please everyone would be to please no one. I’d imagine creating content is fun but must be time consuming. Yeah I figured you had a head start, newgrounds has been around for awhile. Adult games seem like a good option when you think of all the indies elsewhere. I feel that adult games has had little maturity, that a lot of content isnt kept to a certain quality. I know I can make quality games, but to spend a lot of time with the assets animations, seems a bit daunting to me. I’m glad your achieving your goals. Hopefully your career continues to make you happy.

        Best of luck!

    What’s the item at the nurse that cost 7000?

  76. Hi, new patreon donator, just a quick question. How long does it take to get account activation email? I registered to access the game content, but didn’t get email. I already had it try to resend it several time and checked my spam box as well.

    • I’m actually working on that issue right now actually. i manually approved some users that are currently in pending status you might just try to log in with what ever username you used.

  77. Hello Vortex00,

    I was wondering if you would accept to give me some technical info/help regarding animations.

    To be honest I was inspired by your work, and I’m currently getting back into graphic art. By that I mean ero-content. I am at the moment training my drawing skills by creating characters and scenes, based on your method of doing things (photoshop + moho, because I love the result you get)

    Here’s my question: What are your image size settings (dimension, dpi, etc) on photoshop? so that it’s easily imported to an animation software and so that scenes to become too big in size. Maybe you could show me a screenshot of your default settings? (am I pushing it?)

    I hope you don’t mind me bothering you with that sort of question, also I hope I managed to make myself understandable x)

    Respectfully

    • Thanks and sorry I have your PM I am just behind in replying. For animations, size of art depends on the game resolution size. Photoshop/SAI art is almost always twice the size of the game resolution, at 72 dpi. Then the final result is shrunk back down to half size to to get the game resolution size.

      Animation software settings are same size and fps as the game. for easily importing image parts to animate and exporting the animation at the correct fps.
      UMCH is 1280×960 at 30 fps. but Maiko’s view is only 1280×720.

  78. Great thanks for your reply 🙂
    sry didn’t mean to insist, wasn’t sure if you read your PMs

  79. Sorry for the question but… When do you think UMCH will be complete ?

    • Aside from music, UMCH has everything I originally planned to add to it already. and I will have move it to a beta mode after I add music. and clean up bugs and spelling errors etc. when all that is good to go it’ll be done.

      But it doesn’t necessarily mean i will abandon it. usually it boils down to when I will stop adding extra stuff to it. Everything can’t be in UMCH for story reasons. Some stuff only really works in other games, and that is what i am trying to do atm.

  80. i m trying to pledge 5$ to you but it keeps declineing it even though it has enough money on it any idea y btw i try every thing else to

  81. hello ! is there any completed game? i really enjoy ARIA and Umichan Maiko Classroom Havoc but they where not complete. would love to know!

  82. hi ~ i really like your videos ! could you please build more vr style , thank you so much !

  83. Vortex, when i downloaded the 2.7 zip i didnt get the codes on how to unlock gallery. Well, i did some reasearch and i found one but that code just gives max stats.

  84. Its me again, i finished the game but i didnt unlock gallery mode, i entered the password but the gallery mode is not there, did you build one??

  85. So i found your videos on the MMD Dancing and hoenstly fell in love. Im currently learning how to make my own 3D models and was wondering how do you create the eyes for your characters, if you dont mind sharing.

    • Glad you like them. I only editing the faces not made from scratch. But if you want to model a face from scratch you need to make the eyes cave inward. I found a video that would be better than me trying to explain it.

      after the face is made, you need to learn how to make morphs in mmd.

  86. Hello, I would like to inquire which Patreon nets access to animations/movies? And is the access permanent? Also, would like to ask if the animations/movies have voices during sex?

    • That would be the Horny! tier and access is monthly, however you get immediate access to everything there from years ago. Animation do not have voices.

  87. Hey Vortex,
    love your games. I wanted to ask if you need a composer for any current or future projects.
    You can listen to my audio demo reel at: https://clyp.it/tz0bpe2d
    If you’re interested and want to know more, shoot me an email.
    Thanks for your consideration and good luck with your games.

  88. rascalvandamme

    vortex-san can you give me tutorial how to make booty physic also thight physic like yours
    i would appreciate it if you can teach me those cause i search all over the web and its only tell me how to make boobs physic…

  89. Any chance of seeing more futa?

  90. are u going to do any easter specials for any of your games?

  91. Hey Vortex, I’ve been a fan of yours for a couple of years now, and this bugs me:
    How long have you been making these games for?

    • about 8 or 9 years. So some stuff you see here will seem very dated. and that’s because it is heh. But when you are the only person working on a game and at the time, having a fulltime job. it’s going to take a while to make stuff.

  92. letslovekillme

    Yop, is there a way to find patch notes for UMCH. I see 2.0 but no patch note I don’t understand

  93. Project Updates

    Has number 7 here been scrapped?

  94. I want to do a one time donation of a substantial amount, I don’t want to do a monthly donation. How am I able to do this?

  95. I just want to say a couple of things. I apologize if you’ve had this question before.
    The question I have is why do I have to sign up to play certain games like the Umichan Tap clicker?
    But also I want to say is I really love your content, I love the art style, how well it’s been programmed, that it’s a final project and how quick it takes. The one I would have to say I enjoy the most is the ARIA.
    Anyway, much-appreciated man, enjoy yourself, keep up the good work etc.

    • Thanks for the feedback and glad you like the stuff. For tap clicker there is an exploit that is mitigated by requiring a login. Later I will have a public version on sites like newgorunds etc.

  96. Hey man, I hate to hit you with the same question as a few months ago but do you have an idea of when we can see Rookie Day 3? Really enjoyed the first 2 days and can’t wait to get into the final chapter!
    Keep up the great work, and again sorry to nag you 🙁

  97. hey vortex00 when do you update UMCH(umichan maiko clssroom havoc)?????

  98. thank you and when do you update another games such as ARIA,UMCC,umichan 3d?

    • I can say that Umichan3D is the most likely out of those 3 to be updated first. I try to not make a habit of going back and updating games that are more or less finished. I don’t think you would would agree with any umcc or aria update I made. It would involve removing and/or replacing quite a bit of stuff for different reasons.

    • Also I plan to make a post about reasons for that later.

  99. Hi, i am patreon but when i want play to the patreon content It asks me to connect, i try with my patreon account but it does not work why?

    • Thanks. To avoid an exploit I found across all patreon access games, I made them require a spiralvortexplay account login. You will need to make a totally free user account here and use that to log in. after that, you use your patreon info your verify credentials. If you are already logged into patreon, all you need to press is allow.

  100. I wanted to start playing your games and follow the history but there are a lot and i can’t really find a timeline, can anyone tell me in which order play the games? (umch, aria, and stuff)

    And there are a lot of versions of the umch games… D:

  101. Hey, it seems like most of the games I try to play on this site won’t load; any help would be appreciated.

  102. Gandalf from California

    Hi, I would like to know with there is a way to edit the files of the gameI(UMCH), like the dialogues.

    =D

  103. Is there a post relating to the sequence of the games that the new comers need to play in order to understand the story?

  104. When can we see the next UMCH update?

  105. Are you going to keep the Guitar mini game in the final release? The game is quite boring and buggy, also I cannot unlock the hentai scene after getting 100% in the loop. Maybe Super Guitar Maniac from newgrounds can be your inspiration in that mini game and it is more fun rather than press the same button for like a minute or so. Also in the journal can you fix the quest thingee because sometimes I don’t know what part of the quest I am at. Also avoid using Acronyms because sometimes we might not know what the quest mean and we need to go in this site. Thank you for your time and I hope my suggestion will help you in your next update. You can do it! I will be waiting with every single update :d

    • Thanks for the feedback. Greel needs to be the only person in the room to unlock that sex scene for the loop. if other characters like Zytra or Lynn are there it will not unlock because Greel would not ask Maiko about sex with the other girls there.

      I doubt the guitar mini will make it to the end. It seems like overkill a lot more time required to make a guitar hero type minigame for this. It may seem boring but it is just one short song that needs to be played I think twice now with the Greel quest added.

      Quest section of the tablet is not done. I’d venture to say barely even started. The acronyms will not be present in the final. it is simply there for my own debug purposes for the time being. Yeah at the moment it maybe hard to keep track of where you are on quests.

      if you look at hr smaller chapter/quest stuff such as female rivalries you can see a example of how i plan to do the journal section of the tablet.

      • Is there any requirements that needs to be done in order for Greel to be alone in the music room? Or is it at random times?

        You got a point about doing so much work in a single song, It’s your decision on what is best for your game. So will there be more story with Greel and Maiko?

        I see, I’m very excited for the final release. Do you think it will be released before 2018? And will it still be free?

  106. Not really relevant for this post but would you ever consider doing commissioned animations? Like the 2d ones not MMD. Saw an idea I loved in the voting polls that didn’t win, but I’d happily pay for it to be made.

  107. Hi Vortex, Luv your work—I’m a big fan of ARIA and UMCH.
    I’m writing a fanfiction set in your JLCK universe, so I have a few lore questions:
    1. Could you describe GemCo’s Division X in a sentence or two?
    2. Is cybernetic technology a common thing in the JLCK universe?
    3. How does the rest of the world view GemCo? How much power does GemCo have?
    Thanks!

    • Many thanks~!
      1. Division X deals with anything off planet, alien, and unnatural encounters such and beings from other dimensions and time periods.
      2. it is more common in GemCo related stuff in general. cybernetic stuff like sentinels are common everywhere mostly. Things like the Ai robot and Arielle MLaWs in ARIA are not common, if even known to the to the public.
      3. GemCo has a monopoly on everything but most people have positive view of GemCo. they generate city power, enforce laws to keep the peace, fund schools, research medicine, provide medical to the public care, etc.

      a lot of stuff can be fond in info. I was remaking a wiki but haven’t done much with it yet,
      http://spiralvortexplay.com/svp/category/text/info/

      SpiralVortexPlay Wiki

  108. I recently topped the high score in Classroom Shenanigans but the leaderboard is still the same.
    Does the leaderboard not work or does it need to be changed manually?

    Don’t worry about changing it if it is an inconvenience. I’m just wondering how it works.

  109. hey what happened to your work here it was so good but now it’s like you lost what you where its sad to see I mean I love your work but it seems you are not the same anymore?

  110. I am asking if you lost your inspiration 5 or 6 years ago because its like you put a lot less thought in what you make then you used too did something happen?

    • but what specifically are you talking about? what is less thought now than 5 years ago? I’d argue more thought it put into it. because 5 years ago umcc was still going on. And all I did was mindlessly add in whatever people recommended, and ended up not liking a game I put 5 or so years into. Now I think more about what I am doing in several ways, and even mix in smaller stuff on the side, so if I don’t like it then it is not the end of the world because I didn’t spend forever making it. As much as I’m sure people like giant games that take me forever to make. I really have taken a dislike to it because prevents me from doing anything creative that I want to do as I get ideas for it. I have a whole backlog of stuff I have yet to get to because I need to finish UMCH.

  111. I’m thinking about changing my profile picture on this.
    Do I have permission to screenshot a game or video from this site and use it for my propic?

  112. you almost dun umch

  113. So I have sort of a weird series of questions.
    Would you ever consider doing a shota/futa animation?
    And would you consider adding a fan character to it? ( Primarily cause I love your art. o3o; )
    Is it something I could request through patreon?

    • I have made both and futa stuff before. And I planned to have was to request things like this later. However at the moment I would like to focus on finishing us some games I am currently working on such as UMCH.

  114. Are any of your MMD Models available for download and use?
    If you want to know my intentions, it’s just personal use. I am making pictures and sometimes show them to a friend.

    (Below is just an update. Not relevant to the question so feel free to ignore it.)
    I gotten the basics of MMD. I do prefer using SFM. I think it is easier and smoother but MMD has a lot of great models to work with. I haven’t done a lot on MMD yet but I feel like I currently know everything I need to know in order to do what I wanted to do. In future, I might look at learning to animate but currently I’m fine with making images.

  115. Have you ever thought of doing a “Best of Spiral” collection? and just make a menu with all your best animations from all your games in one? IDK not nearly as deep as your normal work but im sure people would enjoy it.

  116. Hey Vortex00 I am curious. Why are you not on Iware anymore and what ever happened to Tasha MMD’s ,Luma as well?

    • originally took a break from all mmd. So I wasn’t making any videos anywhere for a while. But I just never started back posting there again after starting back making videos again. This is because of several reasons that I don’t really want to comment on.

      As for Tasha and Luma at the present moment I need to update those models again. But when they were current, I didn’t really find any motions that worked best with them over other characters. I normally use whatever model(s) imo work best with the motion, based on the ones that have my most recent updates.

  117. Have you ever planned to translate your games into other languages so that more people will know them?

  118. I was playing Agent Trainer and noticed Anti-Khalei. It sounds cool and before that, I only knew about the other forms of Khalei.

    Has Anti-Khalei been in any of your other games? If so, who uses it?

    • It hasn’t been in anything else, but not a farfetched concept to have. it was introduced as counter-play for agent trainer.

      • It seems like the kind of thing that a special unit of agents would use to deal with users of Khalei.

        • Could also be something used by people unable to wield traditional Khalei, since it’s the antithesis of it.

          • So not everyone can use Khalei or at least have limited control?
            I only know a little about it, like what the different colors do and I think I remember it being mentioned that use of or exposure to Khalei is the reason Dizzy is the way she is.
            I don’t yet know where it comes from or how someone is able to use it. I’ll search for and read about it later.

            I can imagine Anti-Khalei to be less common than most Khalei. Mostly because if someone had it plus combat skills, they could be a serious problem for agents if they were on the wrong side.
            Also, if it is less common and less is known about it, it would make sense that nobody has used or mentioned it in Aria or UM, etc.
            Maybe some people want to keep it secret.

  119. Do you even plan on remaking your old video, Kyle’s Dream? I found it funny, but if it could be re-made it would be much more. Just asking/saying.

  120. It’s me again and i’m wondering for your MMD videos are you ever going to do CAKEFACE? If so with who?

    • Nah I don’t plan to do a cakeface mmd. I’m not the biggest fan of yuri plus the motion is a bit too hyper imo, and the song itself gives me a bit of a headache.

  121. Can I make a song request for an MMD dance video?
    I have some songs in mind but I can pick one based on which motion is best.
    It’s cool if you’d rather do your own thing though. I enjoy your videos already.

  122. Hi there!

    I can’t register in the site to play the other games 🙁 can you help me please?

    In other hand, great work! 😀 I’m really glad to help with some hopes, the project deserves it.

    See ya!

  123. Hey Vortex has the rookie project died? havent seen an update for it in awhile

  124. Are you still looking for a writer for some of your projects? If you are, send me an e-mail. I’m interested in trying out my skills in this genre.

    • Many thanks, right at this moment I actually have a writer Wilsonthegreen/unticop that will doing stuff post UMCH.

      • Cool, that’s one of my favorite games here so far. I’m just going to go for a guess and say that there was a ‘but’ in your comment at one point. You can talk it out with your writer and send me test or something to see if I’m good enough. In case you are worrying about money, I don’t want any, just to improve my skill. UMCT and VN would be what I’m mostly thinking about working on.

  125. hey Spiral.
    I was playing the upcoming Beta build and noticed that the 2 scenes with Tsugo, Joey, and Zytra were not available for replay, unless they are and im just too stupid to find it. wanted to know if these 2 scenes are just lost to us after we view them.

  126. Hey so I hope I’m not being annoying but I was wondering when in the future could we see the art updates go through or at least the general plan for it. Cause I really like the new designs.

    • I’m not sure what you mean by go through. If you mean when they will begin to be used in games. they are in a lot of smaller flash i have yet to post here but will begin this month. And they will be used the Jeni and Swimming game and everything 2D after that until further noticed I suppose. I have a lot to post just been on hold a bit until UMCH.

  127. yo Im new to your content.

    I played the rookie, checkup, the original Aria flash game, attempted to play some of the other flash games, and am playing UMCH currently.

    I am a bit confused… the school is some scifi anime battle school run by a shady corporation from jailbreak and rookie?

    Whats the reccomended play outside Umch?

    Also nurse is hot, would love to see more of her.

    • Thanks, the Academy such as the one in the Rookie, trains agents in addition to normal students. The one in UMCH at Nanako is normal students. GemCo funds the Academy. the Nanako school is self funded. Some teachers teach/work at both school such as Natan and Remi.

      Lore wise you might have a look at ARIO also. It explains what happens after ARIA. and a old game I have here called Daughter of Eve explains what happened before UMCH.

      after I am done with UMCH and ARIA updates I will start uploading more recent stuff I have been working on.

      Advanced Rogue Intelligence Operation (ARIO)

      Daughter of Eve

  128. Out of curiosity, who are currently some of your favorite and least favorite characters in your games?

    • Sorry I missed this. Favorite character is Maiko because she is the playable character and can be viewed differently. Each persons view of Maiko is a little different. It’s kind of like commander Sheppard from Mass effect series, excluding gender of course. I don’t think I have any least favorite characters. Even character that I design for people to not like it intentional. People may not like characters like Harold or Albert. But they are designed that way.

      • Yeah. My Maiko was quite different in CH than CC. More serious and less friendly in CH.
        A few of the ideas I had for my character came from what I was thinking about during certain moments in the game.

  129. When will there be character bios? I find most characters interesting and wish to find out more about the new and old characters, also will there be any updates to older games such as UMTC and Classroom Shenanigans or a male character creation game just to give players more choices of creation?

    • Thanks and sorry I missed this comment. Now that UMCH is about done (maybe just a few more bugs) I can spend to time doing the wiki with character Bios and stuff. Yeah older games like UMCT and UMCS will be completed also though they are not planned on being very large games. But not too small either hopefully.

      • Cool, I like the character creation based games like Vandread though it was the usual dating sim RPG I found to love the story and characters which made me want to see the anime…I hope everything goes smoothly for the other games and get the same love as UMCH.

  130. Hey SpiralVortex,
    I really really enjoyed the addition of sex sound effects in v 2.8 of ARIA. I was wondering, for future updates of the game, if you could incorporate moans and grunts for the male and female characters during sex. I understand you’re very busy and I appreciate the hard work you put into making all your great content. Thanks and all the best.

  131. after downloading current build ..it shows server error nd the downloading didnt happen.

  132. How old are the five ARIA girls? (I’m considering Remi one for all intents and purposes)
    Like, I figure TT and Remi are in thier late 20s, and Bri is somewhere around 19-20, but what about Ari and Phia?
    Do they even have numerical ages?

  133. i can’t acces to UMICHAN TAP CLICKER they say i don t have perisssion why ?

  134. Do you plan on having any voice acting in future projects?
    And would you ever work with Rawr again? I like her work as Phia.

    Playing a little of Aria recently made me curious.

  135. Vortex00 me apologize for bothering you but you could make a publication about this request. I know that this has nothing to do with the games that are published here. this is about a request to eliminate censorship in Japan with respect to the genitals. I saw this petition in a twiter by a Japanese doujin artist who was talking about a recent increase in censorship in Comiket 92. more than us sign the petition is that the Japanese sign it, because our signatures are not worth to them, the idea is people who see this petition them publish it in Japanese forums to make the petition known. maybe this may seem silly but I’ll leave this here in case someone is interested. If you are interested in making the publication, I also ask you if you can send to other Patreon artists to see if they are interested in helping with this. I would appreciate it very much
    petition: https://www.change.org/p/%E5%86%85%E9%96%A3-%E5%88%91%E6%B3%95175%E6%9D%A1%E3%81%AE%E5%BB%83%E7%B5%B6%E3%82%92%E6%B1%82%E3%82%81%E3%81%BE%E3%81%99-%E7%B6%99%E7%B6%9A?recruiter=718057043&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=share_petition

    • @johnson
      I moved the question here because as you mentioned it is unrelated to anything I do here. I don’t want to get into a discussion about this, but they might be more effective getting names, numbers, e-mails, of their local lawmakers and finding out if they are for or against that law. And go from there with not a petition, but a psa so people can know who not to vote for. And try to find, or put in place, people who will work to get it changed.

  136. Im playing UMCH and this game is really good.
    Then I want to play this game in my native language(Japanese).
    So I want to cooperate to tranlate.
    How can I do this?

  137. I apologize if this has been asked before, but what is the proper order to play your games in? I have just discovered your games after finding Female Rivalries on playforceone.com, but after checking out your Patreon, then coming here to your website, you seem to have a lot here! I just want to make sure I’m not missing out on anything important in the story by playing games out of order, of if there’s supposed to be a proper sequence to things.

  138. hey spiral,

    i played a game staring maiko being in the act and doing sex positions. i was wandering if you can make a spinoff for maiko, that is not apart of the canon, or another canon with her, i think she has makings of a good story on her own. that is just me.(and i hate to see maiko die in one dimension)

    • IF i am breaking a rule on my post please remove it, i can not edit from here

    • This is the correct place to ask questions.

      what game did you play with Maiko in it? UMCH is all about Maiko already.
      It sounds like you played Daughter of Eve? But is has no sex positions for Maiko.

      • i mean the very first game umichan maiko, back when you was doing real drawings of her

        • i just saw the patreon page,i am glad your doing well, how hard is it to have lewd girl parts in unity? Did you have to handmake them?

          i like your content Spiral, i think my first game of yours was umichan maiko back when you was drawing “realistic” maiko. but anyways, i enjoy your work and i hope you continue to do more, just remember to take breaks every now and then, play some games, maybe read a book. I know i sound nagging but we will be here if you need a break dude

          • So you want more stuff like Umichan Maiko? It didn’t have a story. but umichan maiko v2 had small story with riley in it.

            unity3d is little more complicated to have 3D lewd parts that actually move and morph. Yeah I edit the models in mmd first before importing them into unity. There is also additional set up I have to do after import.

            by realistic I assume you mean boob size. If i was drawing the art myself I’d probably have it smaller, or as you say more realistic.

  139. Well not like the first game umichan maiko but i do like what your doing with maiko, the point and click style of classroom havoc. as for story, well a good story with a dark tone is good, i am just a guy that likes things all happy, what i am saying is i would like to see maiko in (possibly?) a coming of age story, separate from the JLCK story. With the workings of classroom havoc(UI, gameplay,etc) but this is just me. these are your characters and you can do what you want with them

    • Also sorry if i am confusing you on maiko’s art style, i seen her change so much from when i last saw her i am using the wrong term to call her new look and design from what she looked like in umichan maiko

      • Also not talking about a side story or a spinoff of maiko in the JLCK Canon, i mean maiko in her own canon if possible. sorry for so many posts.

  140. Ok after sleeping on what i said i realized what i am asking is too confusing for people to like, a different canon would only confuse people.

    If a different canon was made my idea would have been maiko dealing with everyday life while dealing with a past problem (loss of a parent, being cheated on,Etc.) a little bit of a big problem like a kidnapping of a good friend, and her beating her “rival” (maiko would not care for rivalry cause she just wants to befriend everyone), I know what i am saying sounds like what you did in UMCH but there is a dark tone to it. Dark tones to a story is good, and not everything has to end happy, but all of this is just my idea and my preference. JLCK has a good story on its own, it’just kinda confusing to keep up on the canon, but that might just be me

    as for the Realistic style, i was talking about how maiko looked when she was in her first game Umichan maiko, you have changed art styles quite a bit to a point i could not find you for a while,

    i like the old style but the one your using is not bad either
    I am sorry for my last 3 posts, i was very tired when i made them and could not get my ideas right.

    I think i addressed everything that i did not explain good last time, i did have a few questions to ask

    1.how user friendly is unity and mmd?
    2.How is a sex scene made in unity? (if trade secret understandable)
    3.Is there anyway to help out if i can not donate?

    I forgot to say this last time but thank you for reading my comments

    • Everything you are saying seem to already be there though. There is kidnapping of a friend Leyah in UMCH, and Savori quest has a bad ending that can end the game prematurely. These are both dark tones.

      Maiko, to her knowledge, has no parents. And in the game she misses not having at least one at times. She also has nightmares about being shot.

      It is made clear at the start that Luma is not super serious about some rivalry. She just wants Maiko to do better.

      as for realism, yeah the character has become more refined over the years. I made my own sketch of maiko a few posts back.

      Maiko Photoshop sketch

      1. both are not super easy to pick up and use without tutorials. but both have plenty of tutorials
      https://learnmmd.com/StartHere/

      And unity, outside of some clever add-ons, you likely would need to know C# programming language to do some of the more advanced stuff. but many tutorials can be found on youtube.

      2. I make them in mmd and import the animation file to unity.

      3. If you are able to make nice background art similar to what I have in my games already, or can 3D model well. aside from that I think I have what I need for the work I am doing at the present moment.

  141. Hello spiral and all that read this, just wanted to ask if you posted your schedule on work/downtime? Just curious. Also a nerd question from me did you ever play DnD?

    • I don’t have it posted, or documented. I think some people might be concerned for my health if I did. I pretty much work all day, everyday. Way more than a typical person with a job, because I actually like working on this stuff and trying to finish. At the time of me replying to this I have already been working on project stuff for 8 hours today and my day is about half finished. I’ll record my work time next week and post it, or maybe start today and document for a week.

      As for DnD, I know about it, but don’t play the official DnD stuff. However I do play every so often something I call a Story Game. Very similar to DnD, just with my own rules, enemies, classes, everything complete made from scratch. I use d6 and d23 dice and I usually set a campaign in a modern final fantasy theme. ie. potions, elixirs, fire, firga, summons, etc. but there are still things like cars and guns. something like ff type-0, or ff 15.

  142. Actually, I’ve been having problems with my learning in art. I would like to make digital art, but, some people’s told me to start on paper. Since Umichan Maiko is my favorite fan made game, I decided to ask you a question: Which one do you started and if on paper, it was the best choice?

    • Honestly I don’t which is best to start with since I never had any formal art training beyond high school. However keep in mind that drawing/coloring is pretty old craft. There has been plenty of time for people to find out the best way to learn it. If people are recommending you start on paper, I’m sure there is some merit to that. especially if they are art students. You might be having problems because you are trying to skip steps in the learning process.

      Personally I started on paper also, but that was only because digital art wasn’t available to me. So there was no digital option yet anyway. I learned how to blend and shade with colored pencils. And the best digital art I had available was Microsoft paint with a mouse. I would scan in my art and color it that way also. Of course now you can transfer mechanical skills learned with a pencil to a digital tablet.

  143. Vortex00 all right? Look, there are hentai pictures I wanted you to animate, could you do that? How much would it cost?

    • You would need to be on the art enthusiast tier on my patreon, and have your nominated idea win the monthly vote. It is the only way I can make it fair to accept one person’s animation idea vs another.

  144. Hi Vortex 🙂

    I was curious if you’d be interested in a cross promotion with our adult game projects?

    I’ve just released the final public demo of my game, Venture Seas:
    https://www.patreon.com/VentureSeas

    I can do a showcase on your work for my blog, if you’d be interested in doing the same for my project?

    Thanks!

    • Thanks I will need to pass on this. The game seems very nice however I had some bad experience with in the past that kinda made me apprehensive about stuff like that. So I’m just kinda doing my own thing for a while. Eventually I will get back into my vortexplays

  145. Hi Vortex,

    It appears patreon charged me for February and not January (it did this for all the creators I support) so I cannot access the content pages. Do you know how I can get this fixed?

  146. Hi Vortex00
    When will have new ARIR update?
    I want to see more new scenes XD
    btw ARIR is the best game in my mind HAHA

    • If you mean the old flash game from 2 or so years ago that is finished. However I am working on a 3D ARIA game and the VN the Rookie is also a ARIA title. There is also a ARIA RTS in the works also.

      • Is that mean will not have more ARIA(flash game) update?
        because my birthday wish is can see more ARIA(flash game) sex scenes XD

  147. crossbonecarrot2

    Hello, thinking of subscribing to your Patreon just to play Umichan Maiko Classroom Havoc but I have questions.
    1. What exactly would I be getting for this game that the free version doesn’t have?
    2. Are you able to give Maiko a bush in the game? Are there any dark skin guys? Can you make dudes wear condoms in game?
    3. Is there any footjob stuff or testicle play?
    4. In the demo version for one of the games on Newgrounds you could take pictures with your tablet is there a gallery in game to view those?
    5. Is there any romancing like most VNs where you can only choose one girl or is it that if there is any it’s just part of the plot?
    6. Can you buy items for her in game like clothing or toys?
    7. Is the game done? Will I get the full game forever or lose it once the month is over?
    8. Do I need to play UMCC first or is it recommend?

    Lastly out of curiosity for your other games that you currently developing:
    1. In either one can you choose the male protagonist skin color?
    2. Does Sentoryu revolve around incest and the fat dude?
    3. Does ARIA: The Rookie use the same characters as your other games.

    Loved what I played so far on Newgrounds (espically UMCH), but my concern for investing into your other games is that I wont like them. (ARIA: Too gameplay heavy) (The Rookie: Can’t choose protagonist skin color/reuses UMCH characters.) (Sentoryu: incest/fat dude.) Can’t wait to dig into UMCH just wanted to know if I should play the version on here or Patreon version.

    • I’ll answer some of the questions I can for you. Vortex can cover what I don’t.
      (I’m just another user so I don’t have much knowledge.)

      2.
      Bush? – No.
      Dark Skin? – Only one. The guy at the start of the game.
      Condoms? – No. One scene requires the main character to take a pill to prevent pregnancy but most scenes have no consequences.

      3.
      Footjob/Testicle Play? – Neither.

      5.
      Romancing? – Relationships with some characters can improve after completing some story quests. Some characters can visit Maiko’s house and have a sex scene.

      6.
      Buying Items? – Only some things for quests or skill books to help build up stats.

      7.
      Game Done? – I’m pretty sure this is the final version. Last updates were adding sound and fixing bugs. Vortex is currently working on other projects.

      8.
      UMCC First? – Classroom Havoc is a remake of UMCC. They have the same story and quests. They just play in different ways. UMCC is more sexually free but goes into less detail or realism with the characters.

      2.
      Incest And Fat Dude? – I think it will. It’s about the relationship of that family and how the cafe in Classroom Havoc got started.

      3.
      Same Characters? – It’s a mix of characters from Aria and UMCH. The Rookie is the only new character.

      • crossbonecarrot2

        Thank you for answering these questions!

        Think I’ll just play the free version then. Maybe down the line I’ll see one that suits me better that I’ll support.

        • I’m glad I could help. 🙂

          It’s worth sticking around. Vortex has many future plans and he takes the time to reply to comments when he can.

        • Glad you liked UMCH, and thanks to Silver for answering a lot of questions. most are accurate however I will correct the last few.

          “What exactly would I be getting for this game that the free version doesn’t have?”

          My patreon is a bit different from how you seem to view it. For me, it is used so people can support me if they enjoy or enjoyed some of my work. it is not really used to access exclusive content for specific games. Though there is a early access period where games currently in development have a version exclusive period for patrons, eventually every game becomes public. currently patreon UMCH has number of additional cheats/passwords included also. But aside from that it is the same as public since it is complete.

          these questions pertain to the bottom 3.

          “1. In either one can you choose the male protagonist skin color?”

          In my games you play the perspective of specific characters so there is no customization in most of them. this ranges from pubes to skin colors and more. However in certain games I do have customization, and other games have majority lead darkskin characters. These are just not present for the most part in UMCH. I try to have different games for different stuff people may like. not just everything in one game.

          “2. Does Sentoryu revolve around incest and the fat dude?”

          Sentoryu definitely does not revolve around incest and a fat dude. But it can if a player wants to focus on that. I am aware many people don’t find a fat guy having sex attractive. Many scenes are of sex between other characters. And all of the protagonists sex scenes are point of view so you never see the character’s body. Out of 7 possible girls to engage in sex with, only 2 would be considered incest.

          “3. Does ARIA: The Rookie use the same characters as your other games.”

          All of my games are related and tells a single story when played in the correct order. For this reason, all of my games have characters you may find in other games.

          other stuff.
          UMCC has a footjob animation that can be found in the game.
          UMCC also has clients in the cafe with 3 different skin shades ranging from what I refer to as “default anime” to dark skin.
          UMCC you can buy items such as dildos, pencils, customize the tablet color and buy custom shirts. you can even import custom shorts with you own designs and create custom characters for the protagonist (Maiko) to interact with.

          Though UMCC has older art and debatable quality art. a number of people claimed they like it more than UMCH so I’d recommend trying both.

          • crossbonecarrot2

            Thank you for the response.

            I know Patreon is meant for supporting and not getting exclusive content, it’s just that I don’t have the money to invest in something I may end up not liking. For example, currently if I were to subscribe it would be to support you in a game that I won’t play (Sentoryu) and a game that I’m not that interested in (ARIA). There is also the fact that when I pledge to a Patreon, I like to know I’m getting something directly out of it, since like I said I just don’t have to money. (Jobless college student.) This is not an insult to you, your work, or your Patreon structure though, so I apologize if it seems as one, just wanted to clarify.

            I think I’ll pass on Sentoryu still, not really a fan of playing as Carl despite the POV scenes. No offense to you or anyone, just my preference.

            I guess I’ll give ARIA: The Rookie a go once it’s finished then, but from the little I played it doesn’t have the same charm that UMCH has.

            Lastly, thanks for the heads up on UMCC. I think I’ll play it before I give UMCH a full run since I prefer UMCH art.

            I’m following you on Tumblr since it’s the only active social media that I actively check for artist. I’ll keep my out to see if any of your future projects interest me to support. Overall love your work/animations and sorry if I offended you in anyway.

  148. crossbonecarrot2

    So I gave your other games a try (ARIA, The Rookie, Sentoryu, DoE, and UMCC) and honestly can’t get UMCH out of my head. Especially the mini flash games. I think just the structure of the game is well made. (Tablet for settings, random sex scenes that can happen, interractions where ever you go, the sex scenes, the cafe, the mini games, being able to choose how you want to go through the story.) So I decided to watch you New Year video to see if it would answer my question of what’s coming next, but it didn’t.

    So, I have new questions to ask:

    1. From the sounds of it The Rookie is basically done, not sure about the status of Sentoryu, does this mean you already have another big project planned or does this mean you are shifting to DoE?

    2. Is there any possibility of a direct sequel to UMCH or a game like it, I mean in structure?

    3. What’s your stance on Shotas? I saw in one your post that you don’t mind them because they are fictional, but when you start up the game for Two Scopes it says the characters are 18 which wouldn’t make sense. Also, I saw that your said your Patreons requested it. It doesn’t seem like you plan on stopping and it seems like you have lots of fans who like it, but it also seems like there are those who don’t. Considering it’s on the father spectrum of hentai kinks, is it something that you will have versions or cheat where it’s grown men instead? I saw one of your post saying that you would make Tobi look older. I know there is an argument that can be made that they are optional, but the positions used are just too good to pass up, but the shotas end up being turn offs.

    4. While reading around I see you like feedback, but you dislike request, so I’m wondering what type of feedback/request do you prefer getting? Which ones do you hate?

    5. I could not bring myself to finish UMCC because it felt outdated (No offesnse.) But I saw in one of your post you said it was controversial. May I ask how was it controversial?

    6. In ARIA you had animated cum, and I know that that was a different animator, but is it something you are considering bringing back or is it not possible with the program you are using?

    7. So I decided that I want to pledge to you Patreon for one month as tip for UMCH (One of the 4 VNs from Newgrounds I actually like, and the only one completed.) and to get access to some of the other content I missed out on, but I can’t decide which.
    – First off how do poll structures work? Is it only one vote, multiple votes, a weighted vote system (choose 3 with 1 getting 3 votes and 3 getting 1 vote.), or you have a # of votes to spend? How does the content that gets voted on get chosen?
    – Secondly, for $20 do you get all the animations that you ever made or just the ones for that month?

    Those are my questions. I feel I had more, but I can’t recall what they were.

    • I can answer the poll related question. The polls are for a single mini-flash/animation to be made each month (Two-scoops is an example of the structure) Anyone in the poll tier can suggest up to 2 scenes/scenarios to be made within some restrictions (Can’t have too many people, can’t break Patreon’s terms of service etc) From these suggestions, everyone in the vote tier can vote from the choices. People can vote on anything they like, without limit but you can only vote once for each idea. So you can vote for one idea you like, three ideas you like or even once for all of them but that doesn’t really affect the results.

  149. crossbonecarrot2

    Do you plan to update the wiki at some point? I was planning to choose my favorite girl/girls but there is no info on them. It would be nice to know their three measurements, favorite position, type of men/women, kinks/fetish, what turns them on/off, things like that. It would also be great to see their personality written out and any background information that should be noted or triva. Images of them and them nude would be great too.

  150. Do you plan to upload the other parts of UMCH to Newgrounds?
    I noticed only UMSTM is on there and there’s probably some fans there that don’t know about the other parts.

  151. Will Yuki appear in any of your future games?
    I’m interested in her character but I didn’t see much of her in CH.
    Is she just an extra character or does she have some kind of story?

  152. Soooo i registered for this site but haven´t gotten my activation e-mail..does it take a while?been waiting for a day now

  153. Hi Spiral. I just wanted to ask if I can throw up a idea that happen after “The Rookie”, that plays out like a rouge like game, because after playing this, UMCH and ARIA there may more agent to compete with thanks to some executive being problematic. Just a thought, love you work.

  154. Hey, Do you have a Discord if so i really would like to join it
    if not then you should definitely make one for the the community and for newcomers alike

  155. Nice to meet you. I am a Japanese, but I do not know how to proceed UMICHAN SENTORYU. I’d like a Walkthrough.

    • There is no official walkthrough so I made this.

      If you have difficulty to understand this, I can send you images.

      Select the icon at the top right corner to see the room selection menu.
      Enter the first male bedroom. Left side in the middle section.
      Open the room menu. Enter the first room. Top left.
      “Passing Time”. When you see a clock icon, you can do whatever you want until an event starts.
      You can visit the kitchen and wash dishes or make coffee.
      When the clock icon is no longer visable, visit the first room again.
      Visit the last room/front door. The bottom right.
      Choose to flirt with Alma or ask about David.
      The clock will appear. Go anywhere and do anything you want to.
      Visit the first room again. Top left.
      Visit the other male bedroom. The middle room in the middle section.
      Visit the first room again. Top left.
      Visit the first male bedroom. Left side in the middle section.
      Visit the front door. Last room, bottom right. Select the door icon.
      Select the price tag icon.
      Choose to flirt with Alma or talk about business.
      “Set up Holly’s cafe”. “Hire 4 waitresses. Secure food and silverware. Secure waitress outfits. Secure decorations.”
      Open the room menu. Visit the gym.
      Choose to tell the man “I’m her brother” or “I’m her husband”.
      Open the room menu and select the gym again.
      Visit the ground floor. Bottom right.
      Select the door icon to leave the mall.
      Select the house icon to enter the house.
      Visit the first room again. Top left.
      Visit the kitchen.

      I believe that is all the game currently has. It is not finished yet.

  156. Since it came up in a thought it’s been bugging me…

    How tall would Maiko be?
    And Luma?

    Imagine at least 5 feet for minimum height.

  157. Does Kyle still sneak photos of girls after the events of UMCH?
    Was looking at writing some dialogue for August in the new game and knowing this will help. 🙂

  158. i found your games and started playing but after i made an account and i logged in the account the website barely works, i had to delete chrome saved password data for this site just to access it again. most of the time i can’t even navigate the website anymore and have to close browser and reload home screen

  159. Can I have a list of confirmed locations in UMAA?
    So I can add locations to dialogue scenes I write. Unless you’d rather choose locations and I only do the dialogue.

  160. Hello first to say i am new here and i like this website and his games a lot
    I have a few questions and I want you to answer me
    First the version v0.7.6 of Umichan:Sentoryu it is the last one? because I read a long time ago a outline in the forum: http://spiralvortexplay.com/svp/forum/site-topics/umichan-sentoryu-outline/ with a lot of things that in fact are not in the version that I play like like the possibility of a romance with Holly Mira or Alma and also see in the website H-animations that are not in the game.

    Second in what order I should start playing? because I’ve seen a lot of games of ARIA and umichan also I tried to read the supposed chronology http://spiralvortexplay.com/svp/2016/09/28/jlck-timeline-and-outline-contains-spoilers/ and I just confused myself

    please answer me(I also do not speak English since I am Spanish speaking what I write here is what I do with my vague English and the Google XD translator so if you see any grammatical error do not insult me ​​so much)
    thanks

    • Sentoryu is not the last version. The information in the forum was what I planned to do initially, but as patreon made changes to their rules, it became dangerous to work on the game and I decided to not do everything I had originally planned. I had to even change what I already made.

      Any animations you have seen for Sentoryu on this website that are dated before this reply are in the game already.

      The timeline post is the correct order but not all games are included. Start from the top and work your way down.

  161. Ok thank you for the answer and I know you’re busy with the new umichan game but do you plan to update the chronology? I say there are a lot of games now but do not you think that new people like me can be confused apart more or less when the final version of Sentoryu will come out? to know if I should wait or start playing the games of ARIA or umichan XD

    thanks

  162. oh and apart I played the bonus version of sentoryu where you meet Meiko and as GemCo suspects the cafe but after a litle new events like the thing of Leyah and Jay thats all? or is there any other event that I have not found and if there really is another how can I activate it or is it some kind of bug?

    thanks

    • Wilsonthegreen

      There’s also a scene with Roise and one with Maiko. There’s also an update in the works to add another Jeni scene

    • each area minus the book store has a new dialogue or h-scene added. the game for the most part is done though, the new stuff is just little bonus stuff.

  163. Hello
    I’ve been reading the games and I liked it a lot, I noticed that in some updates you mentioned that you were working on a reebot of daughter Eve and a visual novel the Semitix but out of a couple of news for 2016 and 2017 and one in 2018 I have not seen any new updates about the project still in development or have you canceled it? I’m curious because I’m very interested in seeing how the story begins
    aside in the timeline says that you planned to make a VN of ralamar cristals that is also still in development or is it canceled? Have you started it?

    thanks

    • Thanks I had a programmer polisummer working on the daughter of even VN but hasn’t responded to any of my messages nor posted the game that was was claimed to be nearly complete. I will likely end up finishing this myself sometime within the next few months.

      ttrop did a bit of art for a Semitix VN but it’s already outdated. I think will likely remain a light erotica novel for the time being. a Crystal hunter VN would use the same art as the Semitix VN.

      I wanted to try to make a fighting game in 3D. If I do I can weave all those stories into one game.

  164. SociallyIneptDude

    Will Rookie appear in UMAA? because at the end of Umichan it seems that Rookie will have an important roll in the story of Meiko and in case it appears How will you do with Rookie’s relationships with Lynn, Luma and Riley? because depending on how they played Rookie will be closer to one of them (I play Lynn’s route) and I really want to know how you will handle the different routes or how you will manage the character being so vague in its history personally I think you should start adding it background putting an official name to the character and devising a way so that the routes or relationships with the characters do not clash with each other.

    • Yes the rookie will appear in UMAA, and the player will be able to select how his story went.

      UMAA overlaps ARIA, and in ARIA, Luma, Lynn, and Riley are away in space hunting Jeo. So they will not be present at the start of UMAA.

      While they are away, the Rookie will get to know Maiko better. Maiko, can decide to become intimate with The Rookie. That action will effect scenes in the game if your version of the rookie romanced Luma, Lynn, or Riley.

  165. Courtney O'Brien

    Hi Vortex

    Can i ask how do you come up all the characters that appear in your games? do you base them on people you know?

    • A negligible amount of them are very lose based on people. And very nearly all of them of them are designed around supporting roles to for a main character. In the Umichan, that character is Maiko.

      I make characters with different personalities and different issues from mild to extreme, so player can see how Maiko reacts to those different people, their personalities and their issues. it is all to learn about Maiko.

      for example, if I want to show players that Maiko is helpful person. instead of just writing it for people to read that, i will create a whole cast of characters with their own issues and have Maiko step into the middle of it and show how she is helpful. and usually it is not just some surface level problem. I get pretty deep in to what is the cause of the issue,etc. which can lead to more characters needing to be made.

      Currently I have plenty of characters, but since games like umcihan takes place at a school, I try to make various personalities just for the fun of it. Maiko will be starting at a different school in UMAA so you will see some different characters there to fill out the student body more.

      and a few characters are designed by users here on the website.

  166. Very simple…

    Please will you make more of Maiko adventure? … maybe more customization body/clothes etc…
    Anyway she such sweet character…

  167. What is the order to play the Maiko games?(I only played the UMCH and really been wanting more content with her).Also your games are very fun to play!

    • There is a overall chronological order for the storyline but it is not specific to Maiko. Maiko goes pretty far back and I am only getting to stuff post UMCH.

      The Evolution of Umichan Maiko

      Maiko Umiya

      Yeah more stuff with a lot of Maiko in it, is part of an issue I am trying to address with my recent animation backlog post. I have a lot animations with Maiko that are ready to roll but I really haven’t been able to use yet.

      Also I am working on UMAA right now. it would be next after UMCH.
      UMCH is a remake of UMCC so you might try it out.

      you can find a lot of stuff Maiko appears in here:

  168. Hi Vortex,

    My name is Daniel.I have a quick question about links/patreon.
    If you can hit me up real quick this way I can explain.

    Thanks

  169. Will you add a Remi ending in the Rookie? I love that Remi even while being a futa loves sex with a guy and like being fucked.

    • I had thought about it earlier, but probably will not. I made efforts to completely finish the Rookie along with Sentoryu this month so I can finally be free to work on new projects. Remi will certainly appear in future projects though.

      the problem was I had like 5 or so games i was updating. It’s seemed like a good idea to have a few different games where I can toss in new animations from the patreon voting tier wherever they fit best. But it’s just too many open ended end projects. I dont’t mind working on a lot of stuff but I need to finish stuff also. I can’t just keep starting new stuff without finishing anything. So I decided to finish up the Rookie and Sentoryu. The Rookie had technically been finished. All I had originally planned to do there was update the art and perhaps add a proper gallery.

  170. When Will The Next MMD Be ?

  171. hello
    long long ago i played the aria demo in some other website,this week when i thinking”what to play this weekend?”,i still remember the aria,so i finally found here.
    i’m love this game,but i have a question,there are too much game here ,browser games,flash games,big construction like the aria,what is the correct order sequence to play those games? i want to enjoy the story in the correct sequence.
    (i’m chinese,my english is not so good, sorry)

  172. Can Maiko walk around with cum on her in UMCH like in other Umichan games?

  173. Just a quick question, but in UMCH all the sex scenes and minigames are between people over 18 right?I just want to know for my own peace of mind.
    Just as, in the scene in the cafe when i clicked Friend sex it said that she’d be having sex with “someone smaller” than her and the sprite looked a bit young.
    Anyway, love your work mate keep it up!
