Pledging Info


So it seems as if OffBeatr hid our project until the pledging period starts.  We ask everyone to be patient until it comes back up.

Also we asked and got some new info about pledging so here's a list to recount some information:
  • You can pledge more than once but not on the same thing.
  • You only get what's in the description of the reward you pledged for. So for example, if you pledge $100 you can't get the $40 and $50 rewards.
  • The pledging period will last 60 days upon launch.
The Same Demo:
  • Hardware - Main Download
  • Software - If you're having trouble running the game.

    1. We can't really give you a date. All we can ask is for you to be patient, but it shouldn't take more than a week.

  2. TitanAnteus I need to speak to you about the project you made. What you are asking for is not allowed and is not possible on OffBeatr.

    2. I didn't get anything from a Matt? Hmm that's weird. I've gotten everyone else's messages though...

    3. I'll send it again because I looked into the terms of service to make sure they don't get you. I found some things the project "violates" and you should change them before they notice.

    4. I see where you're coming from but we already planned for that. Dont worry about it.

    5. Good Good. Now we all need to just wait for the pledge period to come eventually.

  3. The pledging rules and 60-day limit is unfortunate, but im still buying this awesome game.

    1. I think he means that pledging is only for 60 days. If he wants to pledge after that, he can't sense the project will be closed.

    1. I'd definitely recommend it. Looks like this guy is all about showing off different h-games and 3d hentai out there.

  5. If we choose to pledge for the $120 or more, do we get the $100 and down or are some of them not going to be included like $40, $60, $70, $90, and $100? which seems to be exclusive to those pledge.

    ReplyDelete
  6. If you pledge $120 you'll get the $120 reward. If it includes items from the lower levels you'll get those as wells. Anything it doesn't say you get you wont get.

  7. Is the naming an NPC in the Digital Mega Pack the $20 renaming, or the $100 one?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. its the $20 one. The $100 it has a lot more in it and costs more than the Digital Mega Pack it self because it contains new art and programing.

      Delete
    2. That's what I thought, but I wanted to make sure, thanks!

  8. If we pledge 20 dollars do we receive beta in June?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, June is the deadline for the normal game (unless further stretch goals are met), the Betas would be out before that.

  9. Forgive my ignorance, but if this project doesn't reach its goal by its due date and people pledged money for it, Will the project be cancelled? And if it does get cancelled, will people get their money back?

    I apologize for bringing this up, and I believe this project will reach its goal, (and hopefully passed 50k) But I really want to know.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I read on the Offbeatr FAQ that pledging money means that the money will only be taken from you if we reach the goal.
      Even if we don't reach the goal, the project will probably not be cancelled. The game will be much smaller however.

      Delete
    2. If the project reaches its goal by its due date, will people still be able to support the game until it reaches 50k?

      Delete
    3. it's possible but it depends on how much we get from offbeatr. Obviously we cant wait for the money to be raised to 50k because we need to finish the game and that money might never come. So, we will finish as much as possible for the money we get from offbeatr and then, perhaps from further donations... but thats not entirely clear yet. One step at a time. Right now it's too soon to say anything at this point. We will talk about it when the time comes.

    4. Sorry if im asking too much, its just the demo was really good and I believe its going to do well. I will stay quiet now.

    5. "The demo IS really good..." not "was"

  10. did you guys watched indie game the movie? That movie is great and it shows a lot of things i think you have been or will go through, you should check it out, its on netflix or steam.

    1. I saw it when it came out. There was one group I could really relate with and that was the Super Meat Boy guys. They grew up with ideas in their heads that they wanted to share and grew the talent to share it... and I thought that was fascinating.

      Veins and I don't have nearly as dramatic or close a relationship as those guys. I personally don't have any amazing urge to change the way people look at games like Fez, and I have no themes or lessons I want to implant in the game.

      This might sound stupid, but the sole reason I'm developing this game is because, I'm tired of almost all H-Games having female protagonists or male douchebags... I'm also tired of the quality of the programming in a good number of the games as well. We want to make an awesome game with adult elements and we will.

      Delete
    2. I got 2 objections here ^^

      The fact that you are making a game for the reasons you mentioned, it doesnt mean that the game won't have any impact out there. If this game is a success, then people might as well look at H-games differently and expect more from them. And I do know that we both want this!

      Also I do think that the game does have a theme and some lessons implated. I do have such urges and TitanAnteus is helping me, whether he admits it or not! He is a great help of correcting the story, finding plotholes, adding new elements... I really cant stretch this enough!

      What is most important here is that we are a dedicated team, we agree 99% of the time and that we have a common dream, to make an awesome H-game!

      Delete
    3. Iris Action is a good example of what Titan means by female protagonists (that game is still epic though!)

      Delete
    4. I share the same dream as you two, and that is why I'm going to support you financialy in the making of the game because I believe in your project :)

    5. @Matt
      Around 99% of the games on this list. http://www.ulmf.org/bbs/showthread.php?t=23696

      Thanks :D

    6. I imagine female protagonist is more common since, well, most people play H-games to see the girls in naughty situations. And then you have creators who don't like femdom or something...

      And when you talk about douchebag male protags, all that immediately popped to mind was one famous for GAHAHAHAHAHAHA and raping women...

      Delete
    7. femdom is... pretty unlikeable imo... Well the common accepted idea of femdom anyway. (ballbusting, pegging, chocking, foot fetish) all to name a few of the things mainly associated with femdom I personally do not like.

      I love me some assertive females though :). Honky Tonk Pumpkin was doing a good job until their latest game... but now... I think only Brabuster System and Zankuro's still doing it... it's just sad.

      Delete
    8. I haven't actually ever heard of those being in femdom, but I guess they ARE femdom things... I always figured femdom is well, anytime the female is dominate and in control. Like they are in monster girl things, hahaha.

      Delete
    9. Ha yeah me too! Then I looked it up and I was pretty much mortified. I wish there was a genre in between femdom and regular sex.

      Ah wells. I've always just been looking for assertive females because a lot of adult stuff seems to be at both ends of extremes.

      Delete
    10. Extreme as in a girl wears a dildo and sticks it up someone's ass.

  11. I wish I could go into the future to play this game.

  12. so when will be able to support this game i try to put my money in it but i says it is not lively yet

  13. Playing with some numbers real quick, if all 330 who voted for the project pledged $25, that alone would meet the initial goal.

    But assuming those same 330 who voted also want beta access, all $30 a head, that would raise 9,900, just $100 shy of Child Ucogi. And I know people will want this game in their (metaphorical) hands ASAP. I know I'm pledging for at least beta access.

    Realistically speaking, there's also gonna be some overlap with that $25 average. I know some will pay less. I know some will pay way way more, considering what the higher pledges offer.

    What I'm trying to say I guess is that I pretty much have no concerns about this game reaching it's goal. :P

    1. I wanted it to be complete, with all characters and maps... but I think its going to be hard to get the final goal, i wish i am wrong and a lot o people pledge, but i am negative like that...

      Delete
    2. if 2000 people pledge $25 each, there you have $50k. So go out there and spread the word!

  14. Is the game going to take much more longer to start pledging? =(

    1. No, you only get the icons, wallpapers and the interactive screensaver with all the sex scenes.

  17. Hey I just let people who are fans of dargothtranslations know about the game. Maybe that helps up the donations a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Don't want to insult you or anything, and sorry if I seem harsh, but you have a pretty ridiculous stretch goal expectations.You probably won't see them archived as the first few are not even that special and people won't even pledge that high as half of those things should have been included within the game. The only really interesting goals are towards the end with different characters but unfortunately we won't see that made...

    ReplyDelete

    1. Originally we wanted to go for 10k but we decided to go for 8k (to be safe) and add some easy to do goals for 9 and 10k. Having many characters but not many levels wouldnt be too good, so we add new levels as we add new characters. The balance must be kept to ensure a certain level of quality in the game experience.

      Making new characters multiplies the complexity from a designers perspective. Each character has to play differently and have a diff story and dialogues. This is a huge task and the money we are asking barely covers our expences, since the game would need months of full time devotion to be made. Ridiculous or not, we couldn't have asked for less money. The game would be complete one way or another. The stretch goals only mark how big the game is going to be.

      If everyone could donate a single dollar, then the funding money would be gathered in no time.

    2. Yeah, the game would be complete but it's a damn shame cuz' later stuff looks like it's worth every penny. I'm sorry, I'm bitching cuz the progress is going so slow... I'm spreading the word but it's going slowly. I just hope it reaches 15k, cuz' of another monster girl. Oh, and congrats on using this concept in the game. I'm pretty sick and tired of all the girls getting beat up and raped. Monster Girl type games that are coming as of late are a breath of fresh air.

      So you said ''endings''. Are we talking about Desire Dungeon type of endings or...? :3

      Delete
    3. That's the reason I decided to make this game. I was sick and tired of all the heroines getting beaten up and raped.

      Multiple endings... Desire Dungeon is a special game... I don't think anyone can mimic the way they handled its endings unless there was only 1 type of every monster...

      We'll leave the whole multiple endings thing a surprise for now.
