R.I.P. Offbeatr

Offbeatr is about to disappear forever. It's a shame because it helped this project (and many other projects) become a reality.

These tragic news don't affect things for MoGi Origins. We carry on with this project as we should. We have saved any contacts and messaged, so everything should run smoothly.


For historical purposes and reference, we post here our Offbeatr page as a reminder of what we have to do to finish the project.

Don't worry we got all of the main pledge data that OB could give us in a Notepad document in our Dropbox.  If you want to save some kind of record of your OB purchase though just in case something went wrong on our end, feel free to.

    1. You would need to somehow prove that you pledged in Offbeatr. This can be messy, so please take precautions if you can. Username, email and any info you may provide is important.

    2. I sent you guys a message via the contact tab. I've got some screens from the offbeatr page with my username and pledge amount :)

    1. I think they are good, this is just a tribute to the page and allowing others to know what is going on. Does patreon even allow adult content?

      Delete
    2. Yes, there are many adult game artists there, for Patreon, as long as there is an artistic skill involved, like drawing, 3d modeling, etc, it's considered art and not porn, the only thing about it is that you have to declare your page is a 18+ page that will remove it from the search engin, so unless you know the artist page, you can't find it.

  5. so, in order to prove we pledged the 12$ would we need to screen cap proof from a email

    ReplyDelete

    1. or you could forward that email to them

      Delete
    2. A screen capture can be forged with photoshop. If you can forward an email to us, that would be a solid proof. But this doens't have to happen now... we will announce when the time comes when we are ready for the final release.

    3. ok, when the time does come around i'm sure you guys will announce it. keep the great work up!!

    1. wondering about thad to i mean this offbeat thinky isn't exactly a progress update at all....

      which means they have not show any progress since: Saturday, December 26, 2015
      (the rock girl one)

      and i remember victor saying they're release the game around March....

      Delete
    2. I said that the game might be finished (from my side, not Titan's) by March if I could finish 1 thing per week. That would have been done if everything was working like clockwork and if we lived in a perfect world. Some personal issues held me back from turning that wishful thinking into reality.

      Titan is working on a new beta release, soon.

      Delete
    3. Taking all that in account. How many months the game was held back now?

      Delete
    4. In case ya forgot extensive delays come with the territory of indy-game development. Hopefully we can get a little more of a progress update come March.

      Delete
    5. Yes there is no new Beta since December 2015, but that was a big update. It wasn't just Stone, it had many more things to show, such as Rudy, Gold and Toadstool.

      The game is not held back. We added extra content because of the Offbeatr pledges and because we wanted to add a few extra things, such as Toadstool and Gold. The development takes time and we try to make a good game, not grab your money and deliver anything less than we originally envisioned.

      We are preparing a new beta version. It should be released in a few days.

  12. Still gotta get my name in the game did that early bonus for it. Keep up the good work.

  14. Guys a monthly update would be something to consider

    1. We try to do that as much as we can.

    2. There hasn't been a game update or progress report this year. I think we are ready to see whats coming up.

      Delete
    3. Yes sometimes things can get messy. Me and Titan decided to double our effords because this project took us long enough.

      Titan tries to complete 13 new areas right now as I design the Tower and the next Queen. The new Queen is very versatile and if we do this right she will be a quite original boss.

      Also a design glitch was found... Ucogi could go to a pkace that she wasnt supposed to. Luckily i have a plan be for such situations. All i had to do is add a new building there!

  18. Sorry for asking but I want to be sure, I donated 50 $ at the offbeatr for your project and I want to know if the package that I payed will receive it when you finish.

  19. Hi guys! I hope you're having a nice day.

  20. I think their working really hard to get the next update out. Victor, you know when the game will be finished? I'm thinking mid summer :o

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes we do work hard!
      We were about to release the new Beta when I was like "oh wait, Voms needs to go there first!" So we need to make the "there" areas as well! That's like 10 more areas to add to the game, but when we are done we will have finished a big portion of the game :)

      We are trying our best so that the game's release wont end up being after the summer... T_T

      Delete
    2. That big portion is ganna make my dick wiggle. I know you got this bro :) One last question, will I be able to see my beloved Slime Girl Black in the next update? I finished a 3D Model of her months ago and I want to post her when you post her. :D

      Delete
    3. No... SG Black will appear not in this update nor the next. But possibly in the 3rd update. So I guess around May if everything goes well.

      Delete
    4. Alright, I can wait. I will pray in the Ucogi church that all goes well. :)

  21. Take your time guys. Even though most of the comments seem like people complaining about no updates, those that are keeping quiet probably already know that a 2 man project like this isn't exactly the easiest thing to do. That's not including things you have to do away from working on the game. The world ain't perfect and nothing ever goes 100% smoothly.

    So again, take the time needed. Nothings worse than a game rushed out the gate and riddled with bugs after a long wait. Then again, that's why this is in beta phase right? :P Anyway, cheers and don't let the complaining get to you guys

    ReplyDelete
  22. Guys, are you going to update us or what? I don't ask for much, just talk to us.
    It has been 3 months already, We are moving to the fourth with no real updates and I don't even know when you plan to launch the game, but its almost two years already.
    I appreciate your effort to make a good game and for adding stuff that wasn't planned to it too. But don't let people on the dark like that, it makes them doubtful.

    1. Titan is trying his best to complete a number of areas so that we can release before the end of March. Me, I just finished building a new big level and I'm about to design a new MoGi Queen.

      Delete
    2. youst talking is not enough give us some screenshots of your progress.

      me want to see new pictures

    3. Being a game developer myself, I can understand the desire for a certain bit of perfectionism. You add one thing, then one more, then you just want to finish up that one little thing, and then one more little thing, and before long you've gone months without a release.

      I, myself, would recommend smaller, more frequent updates rather than huge, heavy updates.

      Delete
    4. Decker, very soon!

      CupcakeValkyrie, do you mean smaller, more frequent Beta updates or just about anything, including images of draft sketches and ideas? Because having a beta with just a small new level doesn't feel like a worthy update and some of those draft sketches may end up completely changed or ruin the surprise of discovery in the game or cause other unforeseen reactions.

      Delete
    5. For the small updates, maybe just something simple like:
      - Finishing an area or part of it
      - Finishing a Mogi but without saying which 1. Or maybe saying you've finished the Mogis for a certain area.
      - Added a boss fight again without saying what it is or where
      - Fixed so and so bug
      - Coded in this part of the game

      Just small things without giving actual game visuals. At least to me, that still leaves the surprises but still get an idea of what I get to look forward to in the next beta. As of right now, I don't remember reading anything about what is in the upcoming beta. For all I know it could be just an added barrel on the first map lol.

      Delete
    6. Sometimes we do mention what we do here and there in the comments... Like I said a few comments up there, I'm making a new building and a new MoGi queen.

      We make and change and correct dozens of small things each day. Today I was revamping the main map. There was a design error about a building which was designed to allow Ucogi to go through but I corrected it so that Ucogi wouldnt go through. I also changed 3 places where Alice couldn't go before. I added 3 new items and 3 minor (new) MoGi but Titan doesnt know about them yet so I have to run my thoughts through him, and see if he agrees. I went through the script to add new info and ideas and delete inconsistencies.

      Yesterday I drew 4-5 new NPCs while finishing up a tall building and leaving another area half done (I will continue that area later).

      Titan on the other hand has fixed many bugs and went through my "corrections document" and must have corrected something like 20-30 complains I had about the game... minor things. I will check them when the new Beta is out. Right now he wants to complete something like 13 new areas for this new beta release.

      I hope thats enough for now :)
