Team Erogi on Patreon!



https://www.patreon.com/erogi

We are in Patreon! Why? Because we want to continue making awesome Hentai games! This is not a Patreon about MoGi Origins, but a support device for Team Erogi and any future games we may make! We are low on funds for a while now and if we get forced to get a job elsewhere... that would delay
MoGi Origins even more. It takes a lot of time and effort to complete such a big game and that's why we need your help. But let's be positive about this! The following video is just a glimpse of what we achieved so far and what to expect in the near future!

Patreon Rewards:
We tried to avoid anything that will make us delay the making of MoGi Origins. Most of the
rewards are images/animations essential for the game or already completed, and in-game rewards which are easy-peasy to add. Once all the images are given away (it will take a while), they will loop and given again, in the same order. We wanted all Rewards to be... rewarding!

Patreon Stretch Goals in detail: (That's the real game changer... literally!)
The first goals are adding the two chibi RockGirls. You might not care about them because they won't have sex scenes. But they are easy to do because they are basically clones of Chibi Ucogi, so it's a small early addition.
Later on we have 4 new Hostage Rapes. They will be decided by Patreon poll. If we reach those goals we will have a total of 11 HR. Then we can have one HR per region, making the exploration element perfectly consistent.
Then we have the long awaited Nude Alice mode! The story will reveal her mysterious past, and it will answer why she kills anyone who sees her naked! Nude Alice will have a new level (10 areas), including 3 male enemies that can violate her in various ways. This dark mode will be in contrast with the bright theme of MoGi Origins in many levels.
The next 3 goals are new MoGi that will also be decided by Patreon poll.
Originally there was to be 12 Mogi. Then we added 2 extra MoGi, pushing their number to 14. Now we have the opportunity to have 17 (excluding the two chibi Rockgirls). It's gonna be chaos! xD
Complete Vor sex scenes! This is a huge goal! Vor would be able to have sex not only with the Queens he faces, but also with every MoGi! That's 20 new sex scenes! Vor's sex scenes will make male-dominant and on demand, unlike we have seen so far with Voms! Don't worry, it's not much of a rape if you fuck willing girls. Or is it? We dont know, because they will be decided by Patreon poll!
•  Ucogi and Alice lesbian sex scenes! Ok this is the hugest goal of them all! I know that word doesn't exist but this goal is so out of reach... it's fitting! Ucogi and Alice will be raped by MoGi in 20 different ways that will be decided by Patreon poll! Imagine the possibilities.. even SlimeGirls can grow cocks and fuck them! That's not futa, right? ^^;

Phew, that's quite a list! Nude Alice and Vor/Ucogi/Alice sex scenes are a big risk... if we reach that financial goal we have to keep our promise. That means that if the Patreon income decreases dramatically, we still have to deliver! It's a bet, and for that reason we set those goals a bit high.


Our thoughts and concerns:
We do realize that these Goals will make the game development longer. On the other hand the sheer content size will make MoGi Origins a must-have H-game! That is if the Memory problem doesnt return... ^^; If that happens we have a plan B (and C) but that chance is slim since GM has fixed many of these issues. 

Also, the higher Goals won't delay Voms' game, because we will finish his story before we move on to other characters. It will take a while for Veins to make all this art, sure, but as you've seen in the video, a lot of unseen art is done (such as SlimeGirl's Red and the Soldier animations) so Titan has a lot of ground to catch up. So yeah, while Titan is finishing the game it self, Veins will have the spare time to work on those extra hot animations! ;)


We want to thank everyone that's supported us and pushed us into doing this,
 and we want everyone to know that we've thoroughly listened to all of your feedback.

  1. Congrats on your Patreon guys! I can't help this month, but next month I will for sure!
    I saw there is one guy already on the highest pledge there, you might want to start spreading the word on it a little so it reaches a higher audience, staying only on the blog will limit its reach! Good luck with it :)

  2. You can contact LewdGamer and send them your most updated demo for a review, maybe schedule a interview even! They are always making news about Hentai games and patreon. I think they are the biggest hentai news site nowadays. They can help reach twitter and facebook too. Their url: https://www.lewdgamer.com

  3. Do you have friends working with hentai too? Ask them to share your patreon on their site, most artists start like that till they get more followers.

    2. Np, I truly want you guys to succeed with you project and I wish you to be happy with the final product, for real. So I will help as much as I can, so here is another hint;

      I am sorry if you already know this, but you can download HootSuit and schedule hours and days on the week for it to tweet and post on facebook, i know you have ucogi accounts on these social media, you might used that. I a doing it, but i dont have many followers, so my reach is small. Use it to send this code, it will have a thumbnail of your patreon page if you use the code.

    3. Unfortunately I think my post was erased, did you get it? It had many links to help you and other people share your patreon. I will try sending as a message.

    5. Will keep adding ideas as I have them. Ok, most patrons that quit says that are for economical reasons or because the creator wasn´t engaging enough. The first reason can´t be prevented because it doesn´t depend on you, but the second can be solved easily and that´s through communication with your patrons.
      Not all them will access your blog and patreon sends them e-mail everytime something new is posted. So try to used your Posts and Community tabs accordingly. This post here fits perfectly the post tab, just edit it a little and make it visible to non-patrons! Everytime you post news here, post it there too! And try to make at least weekly announcements, so they won´t quit! Even the smallest thing counts!
      The community tab is a place for your patrons and you to chat and post stuff, it´s like a mini forum. You could recruit some friends over ucogi forum that have played the game to create some discussions topics there, they can be patron or non-patron viewed too. Use all tools at your disposal to bring people in, it takes time, but create a fanbase and soon you will have a lot of patrons!

    6. These are some very helpful tips! thanks!!!

    7. No problem my friend! Oh, there is a warning I need to do to! At first your patreon will be charged in cycles, so if someone joins in january, at the start of february he will be charged for that month and you will hand the reward to him, some people take advantage of that to get rewards that are open on your patron only posts, so you need to think a way to distribute it until you became a veteran patron and they offer you the option to charge uphand, so as soon as someone becomes a patron, they are charged and you wont need to be worried about some rewards. But there will always be leaks, you need to research some other patreon people methods, I unfortunately dont know any... Most just message the urls for downloads at the end of the month when the payments are in and they are sure that person paid.
      Another thing! You released you patreon at september 30th at almost midnight to october first, so hopefully nobody had the time to subscribe, because if they did, they were charged for september on the payment method used for now. If it did happen, talk to the person through message and solve it with him. If i think on anything, i will be back with more ideas!

      Delete
    8. On the community tab, patrons can post images too, so even if they pay only 1 dollar they can post fanart of you characters or ideas for positions or anything else, if you have people that makes those, call them to help there too!

  4. That's great, and that video is really cool, many stuff I'm looking forward to see in game :)

  5. So you are saying that if you reach 22,000 for just one month and get paid, then pledges get lower again in the next month, we still get the Full Deluxe Complete Digital Version?

    1. Yes. What we want to do is something that Patreon doesnt cover. It's hard to calculate but if we reach 22k and that drops to 18k for example, we are bound to make the sex scenes.

      Unless we face memory problems... then we will have to a) try to release the various playable characters as different games or b) cancel those extreme stretch goals.

      Delete
    2. We need a miracle hero like in Offbeatr, I heard a guy unlocked most of the stuff there, where is our mysterious hero?

      Delete
    3. He is already a patreon ^^

      But there is a limit, nobody can currently give more than $20. Besides, the 22k goal is astronomically far away and it's there just in case we ever get that far.

      Delete
    4. Ohhh, I see! Good to see our here is still around, I will keep my eyes open! Not saying he should do it, but anyone could help in any way, a bunch of people or a huge donation, anything counts!
      But you can actually donate how much you want, there is a edit button and you just choose your reward, you can choose not to receive any reward too. There was a guy that was donating 1k for a patreon artist and just getting a 10 dollars reward at a time. That patreon is offline now, though.

  8. So if the highest milestone is met, does that mean Ucogi will lose her virginity to a MoGi? Or would she have already lost it at some point offscreen? I would've thought if anybody was going to take Ucogi's virginity, it would have been Alice or Dedu. Still, the prospect of Ucogi getting forcibly fucked is one that I would like to see.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I had that discussion with Titan 2 days ago. Now, I'm not sure if SlimeGirls with cocks count as futa, but Titan is ok with that concept, so we are willing to go in that direction if we ever reach that Goal.

      That said, I dont want Ucogi to be raped in this game. Titan respects that and agrees with me. You see, Ucogi is too special to just lose her virginity to some random enemy or even a scripted enemy in this game. Alice has the "Nude Alice Mode" to explore how she has sex, and it is a story worth exploring. But this game has no space to shove Ucogi's first sex story because it irrelevant to the game and it occurs at a time after this game.

      To sum it up, im not too comfortable having Ucogi being raped in a cheap and blunt way. Ucogi has to remain pure, so even if she has sex with a MoGi it might not be considered "canon", in the same way that Chun-li's ending in SF2 in not canon because she is not really the one who beats Bison.

      I want to tell a few stories regarding my OCs and have things a certain way. Ucogi can't be raped because that would affect her in any future games involving her. When she has sex it has to be in a good and important story. If Alice (or Irene in possible other games) gets raped, it should have a devastating impact on their lives and behavior. Right now I cant have all character being raped. Each character needs to be different. They have to represent different aspects that people like or can relate to.

      When a story is told, it needs a reason to introduce something new. i dont want to waste the opportunity of showing in emotional detail how Ucogi makes love for the first time and what that means to her. But for now we explore how she reaches that point in her life.

      Ucogi, Alice and Irene are all damaged in different ways and perhaps this is what unites them. This game will reveal a lot of that, and hopefully future games will expand their story and even have Ucogi being forcibly fucked. But if that happens.. it will have to be after certain stories are told first.

      Delete
    2. Of course It wont be canon Veins, nothing says that Ucogi had lost to the mogis and was raped, for all that counts, with her abilities she could have beat them all and finished her story untouched. But you have the gameplay elements to please your fans, like clothing tearing and the rapes, but that doesn't meant it happened to real ucogi, you see? Most of that happens on Visual Novels with different paths or even hentai too, just because its there and a player chooses too, its for the creator to decide whats the real ending. These are like alternate realities where it could have happened, but they arent canon and that just it, so for me its ok to have the girls having sex on the game, because if they are raped its because of my failure in protecting them with my skill and not because they arent capable of defending themselves on their real stories. What do you think Veins?

      Delete
    3. I agree. But there currently no male characters in the game that want to rape girls. The only exceptions is Vor (but he only rapes MoGi), the soldiers (but they get MoGi-raped by Rudy) and the characters from Nude Alice (which dont appear in the main game). So there is no way that Ucogi can be raped here even in a what-if scenario.

      1) Thank you all so much!
      2) RockGirl Turquoise was a small Goal but a very important one. We reached it in 7 days from launch!
      3) RockGirl Turquoise is already animated. We will try to release her in the next Beta!

  11. "- Get a sexy random MoGi flash (.swf) animation from the game, each month (limited)."

    Whats the meaning of limited here? I dont see a counter of slots on this pledge.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess that many of these Rewards are limited in the sense that if images or animation are all used up we will start releasing them from the beginning. But yeah, you are right to mention this... we got so many different animation in the game to last for years. So I will remove that word from that Reward.

      Delete
    2. For years you said? Is there more animation made than its going to be added to the game?

      Delete
    3. Imagine this. We give 1 animation per month. So far we got 9 MoGi and 5 HR (14 total). That equals 14 months. In those 14 months more animations will be done (21 in total, excluding the Queens). So thats 2 years right there, without calculating Rudy's anims and anything that might be added from Patreon.

      Delete
    4. I see, thats nice! But patrons are receiving animations that aren´t yet ingame, but that are going to be, right? Because for the released ones i can open my beta version and watch them for now :P

      Delete
    5. Unfortunately no. The animations they receive are already in the Beta. There are slight differences, such as backgrounds. Some are also interactive or in gif animation format or as screensavers.

      But even if these animations weren't in the Beta now, they would be in the beta by next month, so it wouldn't be something special anyways. Now, I know that some people want to access stuff earlier once in a while, so we may do as you suggest when possible.

      So far we give 3 similar things: a sexy screensaver, a HD animation and a Flash animation. These mediums could show the same animation but we decided to have different animations on each medium each month. Sooner or later those animations will appear on different mediums. For example, if Gold's sex scene appears as a screensaver in October, it may also appear as a Flash animation in February.

      I hope this sheds some light and you are ok with our decision.
