Progress

Ok so it's been a while and I bet you guys are wondering about our progress.  At the moment we're simultaneously prototyping all the playable characters that'll be in the game: Ucogi, Alice, Rudy, Chibi, Ninja and Vor.

Here's a small preview of Chibi:

We've also been finalizing some of our MoGi:
Why do we need to prototype everyone instead of just finishing up Voms' levels? It's because the rest of the characters will use some of Voms levels and we want to add secret areas for them to reach, depending on their individual set of moves.  We must test each level with ALL the characters, and since they play differently it'll take a while to plan, design, program and test!

  3. looks nice, I'm looking forward to see more of it, I guess it's a lot of work and I'm sure you do your best to give us the greatest game ever

  4. any word on the beta?

  5. Just to know, did we finally hit the 45 000 ? (I want the final boss so bad)

    1. We didn't reach $45k... we got like 42k (but some money was subtracted and we ended up having around 36k). No worries tho, we intend to include the 45k goal in the game, so that the game is complete!

      Just one request... plz be patient because this will take a while ^_^;

    2. How about bloody alice? Sorry for asking for this since you all have a lot of work on your hands, but i had to ask... i was looking forward to play with her so bad...

      Delete
  6. What about Alice Unleashed? Is she going to be in the game too? Or is she going to be in the next game?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Sorry, Alice Unleashed (a.k.a. Bloody Alice) won't appear in the game. We already stretched our limits to what we can fit in this game. More content means more work which translates to more time needing to finish the game. There's already too much to be made.

    I hope Bloody Alice will be in a next game but it's too early to say anything.

  9. Out of curiosity... which is your most anticipated character to play with and why?
    Voms, Ucogi, Alice, Rudy, Chibi, Ninja or Vor?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ucogi cause I have a thing for maids
      And Rudy cause I'm a fan of Megaman and Kirby with the whole ability copy.

      Since I don't know much about their playstyles now, I can't say I can anticipate much.

      Delete
    2. Ucogi, I follow her for a while now, well I like alice too, and I'm intersted in the gameplay of rudy, and well with what I saw about vor ... fuck actualy every character might be interesting to play, but Ucogi is in the top :)

      Delete
    3. I have to say Vor. He looks like an old badass. On top of that, thanks for stretching out the goals to what your means allow. Even without bloody alice (which I was never super crazy about anyway, I don't get what the hype is about). I'm really excited about this game and you won't really see me complaining unless betas take unreasonably long.

      Delete
  10. In the fairness of gender equality I have to say Voms (Because he is a prime rape target) and Alice since she looks bad ass :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. Voms. Because he's the main character in the game.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. well, actualy, they all have their own stories, and are all main character since it seem all the stories meet at some point if I recall correctly, Voms might be the first playable character, but I don't think it's only his story, actualy, it's the story of the mogis, so in a way, they are the main characters (and I'm sure you would not take the risk the hurt the feelings of slim girl black by saying she is not a main characther ) ;)

      Delete
    2. Lol, I just chose from the list Victor said, but if he also included the MoGi's I'd definitely pick Slime Girl Black. Even the title of the game says MoGi Origins. SLIME GIRL BLACK IS MY WAIFU!!!

      Delete
  12. is there an estimated completion time? I'm very interested in this game. I would spend $10- 20 just to play it.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In OffBeatr we said June, but that implied that only Voms would be playable. Until then, we got funded to add 6 additional characters, levels and enemies which make the game a lot bigger. My own estimation would be 5-6 months minimum. But I wouldn't like to stressed is any further than 8 months.

      This might sound frustrating to some but this is my full time job and life long dream, so you need to understand that me and Titan are doing the best we can to satisfy as many fans as we can. To ensure that we will even try to add extra things like the Final Boss. All we ask is some patience, positive vibes and of course constructive criticism and feedback :)

    2. I know how much work you have ( and some of it is my fault) and I know how much you want to make a great, I also know that great games need time to be done, and I'm ready to wait as long as needed to get my hand on that great game, you have all my support :)

  13. Oh man !
    I completely didn't knew about this game.
    Will you think you will put more and more MoGi after the releases ?
    Like if the game selling well ?
    I think it's will not be sold on steam, hey. :D

    1. They've said it would be too difficult to add more to the game post-release

      Delete
    2. There wont be any additions after the game's release. When the game ends, the game ends! And it's too early to talk about sequels... let's just focus on what we got here. We are already under a lot of pressure to ensure quality, quantity and a deadline that is acceptable by team Erogi and anyone who funded us.

  14. wish i could help with the beta tests

    ReplyDelete
  15. I appreciate what you guys are doing, stretching out goals to include something that we honestly couldn't afford. I'm very happy about that. Slightly bummed out about the release date, but it makes sense when you think about how many more characters and mogi will be included by it's end. I would still like to know if those who paid for a beta can get some sort of release date information on to what may be playable. The mushroom chick looks MUCH better than I ever thought she would, so you guys are doing great work.

  17. No nips on the mogi? D:

    Replies
    1. I agree... the way I see them now, they are like different models of dolls...
      I can understand that if this game was ecchi, since doll anatomy is normal on those. But this is hentai, we need nipples too. The sprite for her looks nice, but without the nipples to tease our sights, well... it looks just bland... Like she could be on any game on the market, even on Steam. But for Hentai, it doesn't make much sense...

  19. just played the demo man and looks sweat as can be man this is the game ive ben waiting for a good looking game that is not bad to play gg man gg o and good idea with the gallery

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have a pretty weird question. Why do most of the mogi... not have nipples?

    ReplyDelete
  21. These are monster girls, not humans. Which is why they have no nipples.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But not only humans have nipples, animals have them too. Its something more wide than just human race, its nature. They are based on animals and other stuff like plants and are "girls". Nipples should appear on them.
      If you take your comment and think a little more, than why they have vaginas for starters? Or breasts? They are not humans...

      Delete
    2. I had no idea. I thought humans were the only ones who have nipples. Maybe their half human idk? Victor will have to answer your question.

      Delete
    3. Any mammal has nipples, that's how they feed their children with milk. They are half human alright, just like you said. They have the this monster name because the are two being fused on one. For example, pumpkin girl, its a pumpkin + girl. And what we have from that? Pumpkin = leaves, the fruit texture skin, orange. Girl = human traces (face, arms and legs, plus the female only parts - breasts and vagina, you can see she has a clitoris and even a womb, so she could have kids in theory, she will need to feed it somehow). Thats what happens with all the girls. And most hentai monster girls add this, plus the nipples, because they are part of the breasts. The only reason i see not to add them is making the game more ecchi focused. Because I dont know if all the mogis wont have nipples, if just some will. But the only person i can see showing some is Ucogi, because even Alice is going to hide hers...
      Its ok, i am not raging or anything, just trying to talk to you and understand the real reason why they cant have nipples, thats it. Hope you understand.
      Take a look at this series, this is what i am trying to get at, when i talk about their anatomy:

  22. 1)The enemy sprites are small enough where adding nipples that look good would be a challenge and a half.
    2)Plus it's less distracting this way when you're playing the game normally.
    3)We also want to be able to toggle adult content.

    This is nothing new either. Games with big sprites like Erotic Eater feature characters with no nipples. Our sprites however are big enough that if we added nipples in their rape scenes there'd be cognitive dissonance.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Taking it as a way to toggle mature content is ok for me. As long as the adult enable option is worth it. The sprites not having nipples as you see them during the levels, but since the raping scene is going to be taken out on toggling, why not add the nipples to it?

      Delete
    2. Erotic Eater has nipples man... http://www.dlsite.com/maniax/work/=/product_id/RJ113831.html
      You cant see them right because of the size, but they are there. And on the onscreen cg, they are there.

      Delete
    3. That's what he means - On the normal sprite, they're not there, but on the actual sex CGs they are

      Delete
    4. I know what you mean and I understand where you'll all coming from but it's a design decision that was made before this game was even thought of. The MoGi are already designed and changing those designs this late could have negative effects to the people who already supported us. We'd rather not make such a huge change this late in the dev process.

      Delete
    5. Well, in the end it's all your guys choice anyway. I am just disappointed, that's all.

      Delete
    6. Pumpkin girl kinda sorta has nipples. But making it a non adult game without the nipples makes a lot of sense.

      Delete
    7. How does it make sense if people pledged for a adult game at offbeatr?

      Delete
    8. That's a pretty valid argument. I'm surprised I didn't notice earlier, now every mogi seems rather incomplete. At least those with their breasts exposed.

      Delete
    9. I know, right? The developer's blog name is "A Dev Journal For Amazing Adult Games", and all I read are mentions of the game walking to a ecchi path... Only one of the main characters girls get naked at all, and that's just it. The others can't get naked or show nudity on them. There won't be sex scenes with Ucogi and Alice. Rudy is going to have those, but just in mogi form, so no female sex too.
      Now mogi's won't have nipples, because they want to make it a non adult game too. It's ok to want that and have it sold on non adult websites. But make a toggle option that takes the hentai scenes and takes the nipples or add bras to them. Don't limit the hentai content because of this choice, or you are already falling as listening to your fans. That's not fair with people who pledged for a adult game, you have our support, but please don't fail on us. We are expecting the hentai game of the decade as a lot of people have been talking about.
      I want to be wrong, with all my forces, please prove i am wrong. Or this will be the only and last time I back a project...

      Delete
    10. You probably should have played the demo or watched the trailer to see if you liked it or not. The whole point of a demo/trailer is to know how the game is going to be and what to expect.

      Delete
    11. Ok VongolaHQ. Now I am to blame? How do you know i didnt watch the trailer or played the demo? Now I am feeling bad for helping funding this game, if thats how you care about your costumers.
      I played the demo and liked it, its a good game. But did we watch the same trailer? It says "Join Voms in a new HD Hentai adventure from Team Erogi!" I don't know about you, but for me Hentai ≠ Ecchi.
      "Creators of Ucogi SuckerSuck and Ucogi's St. Pattys Day", on SS there is oral sex, even if it is not Ucogi and nudity on St Pattys.
      "Help us reach Stretch Goals for more levels, characters and adult scenes (I displays each new character there, how was i supposed to now there won't be adult scenes with them?)
      Almost all Mogis on the trailer are covering their nipples or using clothes. Only a couple arent, but even pumpking has "green" nipples. how was i supposed to now there won't nipples on a Hentai game?

      Delete
    12. This is interesting. I'm curious to see what the developers might say. Nipples doesn't seem really all that hard. And yeah... this is an ADULT game.

      Delete
    13. I'm not blaming, just sayin, and I'm a customer. Those aren't green nipples on pumpkin girl. They're stems just like the one on her head. In the demo if you collected all the images, you will notice that the mogi's either don't have nipples or aren't showing. From the images, you should assume they aren't going to have nipples in the H-scene. Even in the trailer, the mogi's don't show/have nipples. If you liked nipples in your H-scenes then you should have read the FAQs on offbeatr, asked your own questions on their forums and done some research. Especially if the demo/trailer didn't show any nipples.

      Delete
    14. Hey VongolaHQ, give the guy some credit, he is blunt, but he is right anyway. I know you like the game and want to defend it. But, all you explained made me think more before donating/buying the game.
      It is a Hentai game, but right now i just feel a ecchi vibe from it. Its just like the developers wanted to do a ecchi game, but hentai is more attractive to consumers and people tend to give money for porn. So thats the easy road to fund a game.
      Even now, most ecchi animes are more adult than this game, because they have nipples and show the main cast naked (the breasts at least). You even said pumpkin doesnt have nipples herself...
      Its just strange for a game labelled as adult to be so soft on adult elements, and what you said doesnt make sense dude... adult game, why in earth he needs to research if there is going to be nipples on it??? Did you ever download a porn and had to research to see if there is nudity in it?? And if he didn't find all mogis pictures during his demo play?
      I know he might not be the first to argue about this, and he is not going to be the last too. Not everybody access this blog, but when the first demo comes out and the word is spread... then you will see how people will react to it.
      Well, the game looks great and plays nice, but as adult game... i will wait a little more before i buy and start recommending it to my friends. As a Steam game it might work...

      Delete
    15. Wow, seriously ? Are you guys seriously saying that nipples are what makes stuff adult ? So I could make a movie of a girl being gang raped, druged, and tortured, if she wear a bra all long it would not be an adult movie because the nipples are hidden ? It is adult because there are sex secnes, it is adult because there are people being raped (and you have to save them), another thing, we never reached the 45k stretch, yet they are offering it to us giving us the last boss and whole story, lot of stuff they will add are suggestions from fans, so don't say they are fan failling, and finaly, no beta is up yet, you don't know anything about the game exept for the demo that was just that, a demo and a picture of amanita and yet you are already making bad critics, so please guys, give them time to make the game, they do all what they can and actualy give us more than what we paid for.

      Delete
    16. It's better to know what your buying than not know and then regret it. If the game is free, then you have nothing to lose. But if it isn't and it interest you, then your going to want to try a demo or look up of what others say about it before you buy it. Unless your lazy and don't care or just want to support the game. I doubt many people will be mad because of no nipples on the mogi's because the demo clearly shows the mogi's not having nipples. I recommended it to two of my friends and they both spotted no nipples on pumpkin girl and sadly, decided not to buy it.

      Delete
    17. It seems a bit lazy to me. Some monsters I understand, slimes without nipples is not a big deal But you're going to have actual sex in the game, which I liked, but small things like that do matter. It's my own fault for not realizing it, I will definitely pay more attention to this in the future. I will never help fund a game unless I'm familiar with the development group. I did so for Skullgirls and this game. I should have been more careful. I'm thankful for how generous they are, but this seemed a very simple thing that they decided not to do. Because the Mogi Cards don't have nipples maybe. It's a dumb reason regardless.

      Delete
    18. Man, the difference from your example is that they aren't wearing bras or anything... they just feel incomplete...
      Even VongolaHQ said his friends didn't like this, so the game already lost part of its interest to some. Its normal that a bigger number of people will have an issue with this in the future. Making the game sell even less. You just remember this, its the art, and thats one of the main factors when choosing to buy or not. If its something so simple, why not add those already? Because its going to make a huge difference.

      Delete
    19. Dorago, I am new here, so please explain to me. What fan suggestions are they going to add in? Is there a list anywhere?

      Delete
    20. I think he means the secret mogi that can transform in naked ucogi/alice and have sex to Voms. I remember Veins said they want to add it in.

      Delete
    21. Wow, that's pretty cool. My faith has been restored! Still upset for not having nipples... but its not like ucogi or alice are not going to have nipples, right?!

      Delete
    22. I don't know man, playable alice is not going to show her nipples or bush... I can only see she being naked if they pull another suckersuck with this mogi you are talking about.

      Delete
    23. But that's what Veins said it will happen. Its not Ucogi or Alice, its a mogi, so she can turn on them, get naked and have sex freely. You understand?

      Delete
    24. When you explain like that... yeah, it makes sense :)

      Delete
    25. Yeah, the special mogi was one of the suggestions, many other suggestions were about gameplay, if a suggestion is interesting they study it and see if they can implement it, they listen to the fans, however, that special mogi is not confirmed yet, they will put it if they can, but don't worry about seeing Ucogi do naughty things, actualy one of the pleadge I made was to give an alternate skin to a mogi and I chose the skin to be Ucogi, but which mogi or what she will do, I let you discover it in the game when it's done ^^ I know 2 other people pleadged for it, who knows, one of them might make an Alice skin :)

      Delete
  23. Just so you know, some hentai games creators started using Patreon to get monthly pledges and continue expanding their game with monthly updates. The release of the complete Mogi game, doesn't mean it cannot be expanded afterwards, just throwing that idea here... maybe it will stick :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Breast smother pls D:

    ReplyDelete
  25. If you look closely to Neko, Medusa, Pixie and Troll, they have little shadows on their clothing hinting they are wearing no bras. With the nipple pressing the clothing. So they do have nipples, but its convinient to just them have, because they are wearing clothes...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Let the Nipple Wars commence! I wonder (hence why I am not serious and don't really care) if the developers may put some protruding nipples on Voms? Would that make you guys happy? xD

    ReplyDelete
  27. I hadn't really realized but yeah, it seems that nipples are highly avoided. Yes some mogi have a little bump. Like the cyclops or the troll. I appreciate that because they are wearing clothing. Others though, are just big mounds without anything to them. On another note, a lot of breast coverage is expressed. With Alraune for example or even Bloody Alice.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Now we definitely know that for future games if they decide to make more, not to expect nipples. I mean... there is pussy and dick in the game, don't see why nips would be so difficult really.

    It was stupid to design them not to have nipples, lol.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, to be honest, the MoGi designs were originally for the card game, which makes more sense to not be showing nipples on. I guess they just didn't feel like(or forgot to?) adding nipples for the game

      Delete
  29. Needless to say, I'm STILL EXCITED for this game and am not upset that I helped. This game will be great and I can't wait. (The last two Anon's have also been me, sorry for trip posts)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't think they forgot it, it's more like they didn't want really... I agree that's not a good design decision for a Hentai game, it just doesn't make sense at all. What do you think of it Battle-Jesus?
    The only way I see it working its for them to sell it as a non hentai game too. The sprites are ecchi, if you take the sex scenes out with some option on settings... there you go, ecchi game...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Can I get some kind of estimate on the beta? It is nearly a month after the original estimated release so I wouldn't mind some sort of Idea as to the new date .

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 2 more weeks at least. We're simultaneously programming 5 different characters so the work is very... unfinished. We haven't really gotten to work on any more MoGi since the other characters take precedence at the moment so if we released the beta now it wouldn't have any more sex scenes.

      We're going by the assumption that that's what you really want in the beta so when we get there we'll release it.

      Delete
    2. Well, for me, the gameplay is as interesting as the sex scenes :)
      It's cool to see we will see it soon, you have all my support :)

  37. @VongolaHQ: There won't be any new MoGi in this game. If we keep adding stuff the game will never finish and people will get annoyed if this takes us too long. We are struggling to deliver the Beta ASAP as it is.

    @Anonymous: It's too early to talk about sequels, but yeah, story-wise we will leave some doors open just in case ^^

  40. The more I come to this blog the more I feel sorry I pledged. The ''it was decided long before development'' attitude is getting annoying. Why asking for opinions in these comments when things won't matter in the end.

    And those nipple wars. How the hell people knew if more then half won't have nipples when we saw the rest of the mogis only near the end of campaign? The demo was early in development as well. This project is more fishy with each passing day.

  43. well any game release takes too long i don't know how it works but it must be harder then making a hollywod blockbuster or building a house.
    otherwise a small developers team of porn games like this one.
    can not be compared to the big game companies like sega,xbox,ea, e.d.c

    so there isn't much to expect anyway,

    1. And even they claim that their best games take YEARS to complete and we're expecting this thing sometime this year...I think? I dunno I heard somewhere it was originally July, but then push it back due to more increased content.

  44. What´s the matter guys?

    You started so well, you cared about the COmmunity answered Questions etc.

    And now you don´t care anymore?

    It´s not so hard to make progress post, talking about how it goes, why it takes longer, post some Teaser pics etc.

    It´s really disappointing how you switched from we wan´t to make the Community Happy to we don´t care anymore -.-

    Don´t get me wrong it´s completly ok if it takes longer, but please talk about it and don´t let us all in the Dark without any Infos, right now we don´t even know if you are still working on it...

    1. We do read everything that is being said here. Personally, I keep a small distance unless there's a question that I can/must answer or reply to something that would cheer me up or motivate me.

      We both work hard and as much as we can. Some reminders are good, but complains have the opposite effect on our progress because they do kill my mood at times.

      I know you want the game ASAP but in reality it's not that easy. There are a lot of things to consider, from "if Voms dies when he falls in the water" to "what furniture we should have in a kitchen"!

    2. It's the internet , complaints and trolls are to be expected unfortunately. Just keep doing what you guys are doing and maybe do like a weekly or biweekly update to keep the angry mob at bay . I know you guys work hard and I appreciate it !
