July's news

Map: The entire map has been completed by Veins and it contains 86 unique areas. Titan is now trying to implement an automated map to the game. We can't reveal any screenshots of the map because that would be... spoilers!

Level design: The level design is almost complete. Designing levels is a very complex task because the levels need to maintain a balance between aesthetics and functionality. All levels need to be unique, fit with the concept of the game, create a certain mood, the difficulty needs to be gradual if possible and they obviously need to appeal to the player. Many new elements have been added, such as paths that only Chibi can enter, riddles, platform challenges and blocked areas that need a special skill or key to overcome. Veins will try his best to complete the level design (in both exterior and interior areas) during August.


Details: For those who got MoGi Cardfight, you will notice the subtle appearance of items found in the cards, such as "Energy Reactor", "Defective Dish", "Unstable bomb", "Super Syrup", "Flunky Frequency", "Acid Attack" and many others. "Flunky Frequency" for example can be seen at the top of the building in the image below. You just have to be a little patient until we put them together in the levels to come!


Next Beta? Titan is working on that. He wanted to release a new Beta during July but he couldn't make it. We will be working on releasing a new Beta during August.

  4. If the map is done, then that means mogi animation next? Also, is it possible for us non-beta users to get a new demo with the first boss?

    SLIME GIRL BLACK

    1. Slime girl black is not the first boss ^^ (but she clearly is your first mogi love)

    2. I want to do a 3D model of her so badly but I have trouble making the face. I will make her this year though, and show you guys :>

    3. There won't be another Demo the includes Oak. We had many complains about releasing Neko and Amanita in the current demo because many donators felt cheated for paying for something that we gave for free.

      That said, Titan wants to make another demo that has his new code in it, since he had to redo a huge chunk of the game using new code. He wants the demo to work on the same computers as the game so that people will know if the demo and game are compatible with their computer system.

      Me, now that I'm done with the map, I will spend August designing the remaining areas and after that I will be 100% on character design and animations. It will be a MoGi Autumn!

      My MoGi list to do:
      7 MoGi enemies
      3 HR
      5 Queens (for Voms)
      5 extra MoGi
      X Queens for other characters
      5 Playable characters (Ucogi, Alice, Rudy, Ninjuco, Vor)
      2 Soldiers.
      X extra characters (Mr. Tremors, Dedu etc)

      Ow.. thats like 30+ characters.... If I make 1 character per week (which is hard to do) then I'm gonna need 8 months do finish them all! Crap I better get to work!!!

    4. Good luck, I'm looking forward to see the new mogi :)

      btw, as the one that pleadged for Slime girl black, I would see no problem to add her to the demo, I'm sure it would make at least someone happy ;)

    5. Slime Girl Black in the next demo?! It would be the best demo for me. I will pray in the ucogi church!

  5. Don't make things hard for yourself Victor, if the game isn't done till Feb then that's life.

    1. I'm really not making things hard.

      I have changed 5 or 6 jobs since 2006 and this is the best job I ever had. I enjoy working on this game more than anything else, even after 2 years of development. But I wanted to finish this sooner (by xmas) and the numbers just don't add up. There are too many things to be done, and even if these things are done, I'm sure there would be more things to design such as menu buttons, dialogues, endings, sfx, music... let alone any corrections that we may need to do.

      Plus, its August now, we are supposed to be on vacations over here! :P

  6. Bit off topic, but how are you coping over in Greece? Has the drama over there affected your work at all?

    1. Well everything here sucks right now. Many people have no jobs, the banks are closed, we can only get 60 euros per day from ATMs. If you have money you can buy pretty much everything but the prices have gone up a bit. Personally I don't spend too much money but also I haven't paid rent and electricity in over a month since I the banks were having "bank holidays".

      But no, I dont watch tv and I avoid the drama exactly because I dont want to be affected. So I'm fine, apart from the fact that I can't get money from the bank and some nasty health issues in the family. Funny thing.... when PP blocked by account last December I had to wait 6 months to get any money from there, and now this bank-drama happens.. and I still can't get my PP money! Talking about a curse here.

    2. OH GOD THAT IS SO BAD.... I HATE EVERYTHING. I HATE HOW FORTUNATE I AM. I HATE TV SHOWS. I HATE THAT I TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED AND I HATE THAT I WANT TO RUSH PEOPLE TO CREATE SEXUAL FANTASY GAMES THAT DONT HAVE BASIC NEEDSSDSSSSS RRRRRRRRRHGHGHGHR

  7. I am curious as to ask when we play the next beta, do we need to start all over again or is this something where can just pick off where we left off from. Not to say that I don't really care about having to start over, but it would be nice to not have to fight that oak boss once more and start in the city >~<

    1. I'm not sure. Titan is making many changes and that's why he is late releasing the beta. that's his department... so we will know once the beta comes out I suppose.

  8. Just out of curiosity - will we be seeing Ucogi nude in this game at any point? If not, to whom do I send monies to make such an option viable. /boobs.

    1. yes you will see her nude, the more hit she take the more cloth she lose, but of course, Veines has to animate it first :)

      Delete
  9. Just Alice will cover herself when nude. But don't worry, they plan to make Succubus versions of them. Both Succogi and Succalice will go naked and have sex with Voms.

    6. Jiggling boobies are the best boobies :D

    7. Slime Girl Black's boob jiggle will be the best.

      Delete
    8. I know she will do more than jiggling boobs :D
      I'm looking forward to see how Veines will animate my idea :)

  13. I loved the Sandwich by Spiders, also liked how Sandwich by Succubi had a nice drawn out rising action to climax scene. Spiders was amazing, if only the rising action was a bit longer and it would have been perfect.
