After I saw the material in >>4501
and posted >>4502
I decided to put this matter to rest and acquired a copy of the game to examine first-hand. It did not take very long. My questions to Anon in >>4500
having now been superseded (though they are of course still invited to reply), let's get this little farce over with.
Sierra Lee's Once Ever After
, in contradiction of representations made by Anon to /cuckquean/, as well as the game's store tags and descriptions, contains a significant percentage of interracial pornography (that is, black man on white woman), comprising around half
of all pornographic scenes in the game that feature a man at all.
Further, the overwhelming majority of two-woman-one-man threesomes and other /cuckquean/-interest material soley feature the black-skinned male character with women whose skin is of a paler hue; where the black-skinned male character's threesomes include penetrative sex that is shown to greatly satisfy his partners, while the pale-skinned male "lead" character only participates in a single double-titjob scene.
The game also features other material classifiable as interracial encouragement
, including a scene in which the pale-skinned female lead initially masturbates to the fantasy of the pale-skinned male lead
, then switches to fantasising about the black-skinned male character instead, noting a "surge of shame" before reassuring herself that it is "just a harmless fantasy" and proceeding to a powerful orgasm
. This fantasy is later fulfilled.
In this way, and others, the interracial sex elements in the game are not incidental and "colour-blind", as /cuckquean/ was previously lead to believe, but actively emphasised.
"Once Ever After" is a game created by Sierra Lee using the RPG Maker engine. Additional art assets, including adult CGs, were provided by an illustrator known as Crescentia as well as some chibi-style scenes by an illustrator known as NealaYiskah. Based on material found on their Twitter accounts, both illustrators appear to have been hired by and accepted sole direction from Ms. Lee as to their work on the game. Various other contributors are listed in the game's credits file as well.
Ms. Lee is best known for her ongoing work on "The Last Sovereign", another RPG Maker game, for which she presently receives from her public a monthly gross stipend of US$5,190 via Patreon. The Last Sovereign
's focus on compersive man-sharing has for many years made it a game of interest to /cuckquean/.
On the 24th of March, 2022, in a thread dedicated to The Last Sovereign
, an anonymous poster told /cuckquean/ in >>3240
>[Sierra Lee] switches between projects as a way to stay productive without burning out. She writes novels under a different name, and she's also put out multiple games during the development of this one.
>In fact, one is coming out in less than a month! It's a completed 30-hour RPG called Once Ever After. The production values on this one are much higher than the "use every freeware RPG Maker asset" level that is The Last Sovereign, the story is very good, and though I wouldn't call cuckqueaning the focus, there are some nice scenes!
The anonymous poster provided three screenshots from Once Ever After
, each showing a black man drawn in "bishounen" anime style with engaged in sex with various pale-skinned women, two of which explicitly showed encouragement by another woman not directly involved in the coitus, and the other one showing her providing spoken encouragement from out of frame.
In reply, various anonymous posters pointed out that these screenshots reminded them of interracial pornography, and provided various explanations as to why, in response to assertions by the original poster in >>3247
that the black-skinned man (quoted verbatim):
>isn't really a stand-in for any particular human race
>isn't even the male lead
>[is] just the brunette's partner
>was the easiest one to get a screenshot of engaging in cq-related activities
>isn't the Big Bad Wolf so much as a Big Bad Wolf, as he's neither the first nor the main example in the game
However, they noted that the interracial association was valid and
>fairly obvious once the basic association is pointed out to me
Once Ever After
was brought up in other /cuckquean/ threads from time to time, mostly pointing out its existence and the fact that it was available for purchase.
Eight months later, on the 28th of November, 2022, an anonymous poster in >>4480
related that they had viewed the listing for Once Ever After
on DLsite with intent to purchase it, but had closed their tab after seeing that the first and second screenshots showing off the game's content were
>negrowolf dick on lighter-skinned girls
They further commented, in relation to the earlier assertion that the "main" wolf was a female, pale-skinned wolf-girl named Ulfina, that
>The game knew what it wanted to sell me, and it wasn’t this Ulfina.
In reply in >>4487
another anonymous poster, thinking that perhaps the black-skinned male character's prominence was unique to the DLsite listing, viewed Sierra Lee's Twitter account (@Sierra_TLS) and noted that
>the first Once Ever After-related image on the feed is that same guy fucking a white girl with the composition of the picture very particularly making sure we see the contrast of his skin interleaved against hers, and then a little further down we have a CG of a rosy-skinned blue-eyed blonde being made airtight by three distinctly dark penises
This same poster noted that DLsite's tags for the game only mentioned
>Breasts, Elf / Fairy, Fantasy, Blowjob / Fellatio
despite the reported presence of futa, an interracial gangbang, and so on.
The poster who originally introduced Once Ever After
to the thread responded in >>4493
>I know the game isn't like that
>I hadn't really looked at the promo material before, and I don't know why it focuses on that
>And even that dark wolf himself... has more than one scene, but he's not the male lead - that's Wilhelm, the one who is white and is an actual party member.
>Dark wolf there shows up in one scene early in the game, true, but then fucking vanishes for like half the game after that.
This poster speculated that the interracial emphasis in the material /cuckquean/ had seen at that point might be
>baffling marketing decisions? Actually, yeah, that's my new theory to try and make sense of this. The dev tried to do a cynical marketing ploy and foolishly focused on making the game look like the kind of content that PornHub pushes, not realizing that PornHub has an agenda and isn't responding to organic market trends.
And, further, that in any case
>he's got anime boy face and hair, eats rice instead of yams and watermelon, and wears a changpao
In response, it was pointed out in >>4495
(to whom I both apologise for blending their points together here) that the fundamental elements of interracial were present in any case, to wit:
>If someone deliberately ... casts black dick into sex scenes in the role of the oh-so-taboo Big Bad Wolf ... who thrillingly "devours" various lily-white heroines then you can dress him up as an Eskimo and have him eat ratatouille while drinking raki outside the CGs, it's still surface decoration thinly stretched over structural fundamentals.
Further, it was pointed out that the story structure in which the black-skinned male character had "first pick" of the women before the pale-skinned "lead" appeared, only to return later and continue having sex with those women, resembled many plot elements common to interracial cuckolding narratives:
>A dangerous, handsome, dark-skinned, taboo stranger (cast in the role of never mind I'm repeating myself) appears first, does a bit of ravaging, swans away, is replaced by a "true" lead... only to reappear much later, get another scene, and of course—only if you're up for it, tee-hee—he'll bring his friends around for a gangbang.
>If the usual pattern holds then the sex in his scenes will probably be dirtier and more exciting, where the true lead‘s ones will be gentler and more romantic, meaning there’s more contrast and punch when the black wolf comes back later. You’ll notice that the only threesomes and cuckqueany scenes with penetration we’ve been shown are all with the black wolf too.
As to the idea that the interracial elements were only "skin deep", that is, emphasised in the marketing to the point that they grossly misrepresented their presence in the actual product:
>I don't buy that it's entirely a matter of marketing... this was the game's creator specifically and deliberately baking it in, giving it CQ-with-a-side-of-ahegao scenes, and then specifically and deliberately choosing it to represent the game to the point it's the almost the first thing we see
Thus, the points having been made, and some intermediary steps mentioned at the top of this post, I decided to examine the facts directly.
I acquired a copy of Once Ever After
, version 1.0, and examined its pornographic CGs in the www/img/pictures/ folder, each of which have filenames prefixed by a "z ". I also briefly examined some of the game's story script in the www/data/CommonEvents.json file.
My findings are therefore mainly concerned with the content of the CGs, and only incidentally with the story script. However, what I did find in the script was quite definitive given the questions before me. (Others who wish to examine the script in more detail are of course invited to do so.)
First, a brief look at the story script. There is a scene in which Ingrid, the pale-skinned, blue-eyed blonde woman who appears to be the female lead of the game, given that she appears in important CGs marked "Final", masturbates.
In this scene, Wilhelm is the pale-skinned male "lead", and Fenris is the black-skinned male character mentioned above. The CGs in question are prefixed "z Ingrid", and the accompanying story text includes (quoted verbatim, without any omission in the middle):
>It felt good, but something was missing. As Ingrid dared to push deeper, she began imagining something else...
>First she thought of Wilhelm's cock pushing inside her and how good she had felt at that moment. His shaft had spread her so wide, rubbing against her inner walls...
>She couldn't recreate that experience with just her fingers, but she could move them in different ways, finding the spots that felt best to her.
>Her mind began to wander to Fenris and how good his body had looked... Ingrid felt a surge of shame before she realized that it was just a harmless fantasy.
>So instead she leaned into it, imagining herself mounting him on the bed. She could ride him hard, cock plunging inside her as hard as her fingers, her breasts bouncing against his chest.
>Yet her fantasy soon turned to Fenris grabbing her, throwing her down on the bed, and fucking her mercilessly.
>Her thoughts took her over the edge and her hips spasmed violently, thrusting up against her own fingers. Ingrid tweaked her nipple hard as she came, hips lifting into the air.
Perhaps Ingrid has not yet had sex with Fenris at this point in the story, but it is clear from later CGs that her "harmless fantasy" does indeed become reality. Note also the focus on Fenrir's active, bestial method of sex, which is a focus common in interracial erotica. This scene may not be the only place that "interracial encouragement" of this type appears; I did not examine the story script in depth, as mentioned before, but only stumbled on this from a brief word search.
As to the pornographic CGs, I counted some 21 scenes that involved a man. Of these, 10 were interracial (starring Fenris, the black-skinned wolfman, or another dark-skinned man who was not visible), and 11 were not (starring Wilhelm, the pale-skinned male "lead", or another pale-skinned man who was not visible). However, one of the non-interracial scenes was with a futanari, and was therefore deducted, yielding 10 interracial scenes and 10 non-interracial scenes.
The "main topic" of each of the scenes differs by whether they star Fenris or Wilhelm, as well. Fenris's scenes contain all penetrative threesomes, and the degree to which his sex is more "thrilling" than Wilhelm's is left to the reader's own judgement.
Fenris's scenes include (repetitions indicate more than once scene of that "topic", one line for each scene), noting that only obvious cuckquean elements are mentioned and there may be some present in other scenes' story script:
>FFM (w/ cuckquean elements)
>FFM (w/ cuckquean elements)
>FFM (w/ cuckquean elements)
>FFM (w/ lesbian strapon, probable cuckquean elements)
>Standing MFM (penetrating Ingrid's pussy, with Wilhelm taking her anus)
>Titfuck (w/ cuckquean elements as we see from the screenshot provided in >>3240 )
Wilhelm's scenes include (with all the same parameters):
>MFM (penetrating Ingrid's anus, with Fenris taking her pussy)
Fenris's partners are (partners common with Wilhelm listed last):
>Unknown Witch (present in FFM cuckqueaning scene)
>Hood (in common with Wilhelm)
>Ingrid (in common with Wilhelm)
Wilhelm's partners are (partners common with Fenris listed last):
>Freida (the elderly woman)
>Unknown Girl in Flashback
>Unknown Snow Woman (only 1 CG, seems to be part of a save cutscene)
>Hood (in common with Fenris)
>Ingrid (in common with Fenris)
/cuckquean/'s anons' intuition was strikingly correct as to the high proportion of interracial content and its type: Sierra Lee's "Once Ever After" is a game with a great amount of interracial pornography and explicit interracial encouragement both subtle and direct.
Without an in-depth examination of the story script and how it unfolds to a player, the question of whether the "whole game" follows the general outline of interracial erotica that anons speculated upon cannot be definitively settled, but Ingrid's masturbation scene quoted above strongly indicates that it does.
If Anon of >>3240 >>3247 >>3257 >>4493
had played the game as thoroughly as their posts imply, then they deliberately and egregiously misrepresented its content to /cuckquean/ by both direct lie and lie of omission, apparently in an attempt to shill it. All this could have been avoided had Anon been truthful with /cuckquean/ from the start.
These are my findings.
