What's new in this Beta
• Chibi RockGirls MoGi!
• Sub-weapons and power-ups!
• New GUI design.
• Skymines
• Map and legend
• New areas and rooms (with surprises)
• Installer (you have the choice to install the game)

Chibi RockGirls MoGi
Thanks to our patrons we are having Turquoise and Bloodstone to the game. They are the only 2 enemy MoGi who don't have an adult scene but they help other MoGi to get to Voms.

Energy weapons and energy canisters
We also enriched the gameplay with 3 sub-weapons (out of the 8 that we have designed). Voms can now collect purple cans to power up any weapons he finds, making the fighting and exploration a lot more fun. ENP (energy points) are a fundamental mechanic in MoGi CardFight. We added ENP in MoGi Origins as well, because of Voms' lack of combat abilities, as implied by a few Beta players. Once you find a weapon press DOWN+TOOL to activate it. Some weapons spend more than 1 ENP but have stronger effects.

Bullet: An energy ball is shot in a straight line. Costs 1ENP and does 1damage.
Gas: Short range but deadly. Like a flamethrower. Costs 2ENP and does multiple damage.
ForceField: Shield that protects from attacks and hazards for a few seconds. Costs 3ENP.

New GUI
To accommodate all the above, we upgraded the GUI display (graphical user interface) with new lifebar and icons. Any ENP you collect is indicated by the purple rhombus icon. The red bar is Voms' life. The white semi-transparent bar represents the bar that shows up whenever a MoGi has sex with Voms. It shows how close is Voms from cumming (losing) and like before, it drops as time passes.

Skymines
A new mechanical enemy that moves on a straight line and explodes on touch.

New areas and rooms
The reactor room now has a new fighting challenge. Also some new rooms are added with riddles to solve and you may meet a mysterious new PlantGirl MoGi in there but mind you, she is kind of shy! Some previous rooms and areas have energy weapons and canisters, so go and have fun with them!

Alraune was the most voted MoGi in our Patreon poll, so she will appear in a hostage sex scene!

______________________________________________________________________________

Titan here... hmmm... I don't really know how to start this. I caused a lot of pain for Victor and our fans(I do read those comments). I do want you guys to understand however, that I had absolutely no control over my situation. It's private so I won't go into any details but it left me in a position where I couldn't really work. Of course since I couldn't really work, I didn't take any money. All that money was saved up for the programmers we hired.

The situation's died down quite a bit, and I really got back into the swing of things in the last week, but that's not to say it'll last forever, so we're definitely not dropping our new guys.  Competence wise though, it was really hard to find people of my skill level. In fact, I don't think the people we've actually found are at exactly my skill level, but when it comes to balancing price and skill they're definitely the best.

Going forward we're planning on tasking them with the creation of Red the boss so you might actually see her earlier than expected. If they can make a boss together I'll feel confident knowing that if anything happens to me the project won't get stalled... again.

At the moment though, I'm pretty happy.  I can be active and push the project forward.  Victor's also pretty amped. You should see our Skype messages XD.  Either way, we're aiming for another update this month. One with adult content.

Regarding some technical changes. I've changed how the game draws a bit as well as optimized the loading system.  It should be more compatible with older machines and the actual sex scenes should run faster for everyone. Hitting the center's gonna be tough now... and of course there's the new installer.  People were deleting or moving folders they didn't know were important before. Shouldn't be an issue now.  

If you have any technical issues, feel free to contact us using the Blogger Contact form.

  2. I'm glad you were able to release a new beta. Good job. I hope this is a sign of more good things to come. I also hope this release lifted a lot of stress of your shoulders as I know you've been trying your best. Cheers!

    1. Oh and welcome back Titan! I hope your rl situation is gone for good and doesn't come any time at all. *hugs*

    2. Thank you :)
      Yes, this beta ended up being quite huge after all. There aren't any new sex scenes but so much more has been added!

  3. While it is nice to see that your game is more than a simple sex-slideshow, much more than that actually, I'd like to remind you that the sex is what keeps me interested in this project. To be blunt, there is no mechanic or design in your game that I couldn't get in bigger and better from bigger studios. Except for the sex part. So I hope that you will make sure that this game will get its fair share of porn, the more the better.

    1. Yes of course. There will be sex in the next beta for sure. The game has about 15 sex scenes. There are still 16 sex scenes left to be made and even more depending on Patreon.

      Some Betas still need to offer a bit more just just sex. This time we added new gameplay elements and we fixed the map, while also trying to balance the new team of programmers. More additions will come for sure, especially sexy ones.

    2. We understand. That's the reason the Hostage Rapes were included in the first place.

      Originally each MoGi only having one scene still felt like too little to us.

      The thing is however, that unlike our contemporaries, we're making full HD scenes. Working in sprite art is a lot faster, but Vic's talents aren't in sprite art, but a mix of raster and vector animation techniques.

      We definitely understand our position as adult game developers. When I solicited Vic's help to start the project, the main drive behind me was the fact that quality HD adult games weren't really being made, and that I was unsatisfied with how all of them were programmed. Rest assured that we know our roots :)

    3. I wouldn't count hostage rapes as sex scenes as you're just running around and staring at them fuckin' for a few seconds. Maybe they are asking for hostage rapes because actual H-scenes weren't given to the main character for a long while

      Delete
    4. Anonymous, it's actually more complicated then that. Let me bring you into our mindset.

      So normally if you play our game, how would you get adult scenes? It would be when you're knocked down right? Other players and I are really good at the game. Getting knocked down is actually pretty rare for us, but we can't make the game harder so that people view the adult scenes more either. Some people think the game is way too hard as is. In order, to make sure you obtain some Adult scenes by working hard at the game, we also included Hostage Rapes in that manner. We knew we had to include something because we needed more adult content, but we also wanted to strike a balance with explorers to feel satisfied while unlocking them.

      If you free 3 of the same hostages, you unlock them in the Gallery as a reward for your efforts, unlike unlocking a MoGi for progressing through the game like normal and getting knocked down by them.

      Delete
    5. I fail to see why you dont consider them as sex scenes... that's what they are, animations where MoGi have sex and additional sexual content for the game. You can also view them in the gallery.

      What I forgot to mention is that the other male character, Vor, will also have sex scenes with all MoGi. So that's something else to look forward to.

  4. Awesome! Glad Titan is back and Mogi Origin back on track!

    1. You're the first to bring up these problems. It doesn't happen on other machines, and I know for a fact that none of the things you stated happens on mine.

      What are your system specs?

      Delete
    2. i just beat the oak boss now after like 30 min and idk how many attempts with these issues and didnt take a ss sadly, but i reported some other bugs on this boss bout half a year ago aswell, in a previous beta my specs are i7 and 1080 so they should be running this without any issues

    3. If you don't want to state that to the world the please use the Blogger Contact form to contact us directly about your issue.

    4. Can we talk about this more in private? It really seems like there might be some weird conflicts with permissions or other such weirdness.

      I'll definitely need more information from you.

    5. should've recieved en email now

    6. thanks for the talk Titan. Must say im impressed with the quick reponse time and that you were able to fix all the bugs that were at hand in such short time. keep this up and im sure its gonna be a great game at full release :)

  6. I still havent heard any comments about Turquoise, Bloodstone and the new weapons. I hope you guys like all the new additions :)

    1. the new weapons are great,they really do help alot when ur in a tough situation.

      as for bloodstone and turquise.. i dont know. thought they'd be a bit different than what they are, but i do like that they can transform into whatever other mogi ^^

      Delete
    2. Thanks:) Actually they do look a lot like the original animations we released a few months ago.

    3. I know why you don't have h-scenes with the chibi characters, but personally, I've always found it a bit strange that people associate chibi characters with children. I get it; they're short with big heads, so their proportions are *somewhat* similar to those of a child. To me, that still doesn't quite translate into "child." Oh, well. I can understand your desire to stay far away from that can of worms.

      Delete
    4. Yeah, that's true, but personally, I also dont find the chibis sexy. I find them cute, but not sexy :P

      Delete
  7. Veins, if you ever have to wait for another update longer than you might like, maybe you could work on a second scene for Voms and each Mogi. :P

  8. I don't know if you noticed before, but somebody made a Ucogi Wiki (http://ucogi.wikia.com/wiki/Ucogi_Wiki). It's not very detailed and only has one article, but I thought it would be neat if other people could add to it.

    1. hehe yeah... I made that page and then I didnt had the time to add things so I kind of quit.

  9. Anybody else having a problem with the elevator in the beginning after the first save point??

    1. After doing a whole bunch of fixes, one of my later fixes must have broke something older.

      I'm really sorry about that. It seems like rushing to get everything spic and span had its negative effects. It's fixed now.

      Delete
  10. On my game, I recently erased my old progress since it made the game crash. But now, elevators don't appear, so I can't progress further than after encountering the lead farmer. Also, pumpkin girls only take 2 hits... I wonder if these things are normal.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah pumpkin takes 2 hits now. Now I can put more of them down :)

      Delete
    2. But what about the elevators? Everytime I try to use the first one, the platform is absent and I can't go further...

      Delete
    3. Did you try redownloading? All those problems are gone now :)

      Delete
    4. Oh ok. Then maybe it's because of the installer. I'll try reinstalling the game.

      Delete
  11. A blue moon has passed! There's an update!

    JK, it's really nice to see a new beta is up. Keep up the good work, guys. :-)

    Hope stuff's better, now, Titan; btw. Welcome back, dude.

  12. Is there a way to skip the run through the entire game after downloading new versions? I just want to see the new additions. Not play through the game for the 10th time.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Titan is more suited to reply to this but I'll try to share what I know.
      Currently there is no way to skip stages, but I reminded that to Titan before the release of this beta and told me he has something in his mind to solve this problem, he just hasn't gone around that yet. So hopefully in the next beta we will have a save file mechanic or something.

  13. How do I has boobies?

  14. A small update:

    We are working to release a new beta in the first couple of weeks of May. Titan is working on the rest of the sub-weapons, JR is programming a Queen battle (SlimeGirl Red) and I'm working on her sex animation. AD is also making progress adding new areas to the game and right now he is making the tower, which is probably the most demanding level in the game.

    This is a defining moment for the "new" Team Erogi because 3 programmers need to work together seamlessly to pull this through.

    Other than that, we decided Alraune's Hostage scene and her appearance, attack, and sex scene as a MoGi enemy. We want each MoGi to have a new kind of attack and sex scene and Alra is going to be quite unique as well!

  17. How are things coming along guys? I know you said you wanted to try to release something within the first few weeks of May.

    1. Yeah right. I hope everything's fine for them!

    2. That's why I try to avoid announcing possible release dates... we are bad at deadlines which end up being wishful thinking most times.

      Things move slow this month because the AD is getting married, JR programmed a new Queen but Titan is trying to do some corrections on that Queen and add more weapons and me... I'm supposed to be doing a new sex scene but I havent done much yet because of real life issues. My main issue will be resolved in a week from now.

  18. I am having trouble getting the boobies to work.
