Rudy's transformations!

The last few months we worked hard to finalize Rudy. We do plan to finish Voms' timeline first and then release all other characters. But it was crucial to finish Rudy in order to complete the actual level design. Rudy gains unique monstergirl skills during her story, and many levels had to be designed with these skills in mind. - Spoilers ahead!
Rudy in a nutshell:
She is the only playable character that shoots projectiles. She can get quite resourceful and hack doors the other characters can't open. Since every other character has short range attacks, we had to give Rudy a few flaws for the balance of the game. One of those flaws is her slow ability to climb platforms. To overcome her shortcomings, Rudy gains the power to project holograms and act like a MoGi. That means that she can have sex with all three of her transformations!
This idea came to us very early in the development of the game, when a fan expressed his wish to play as a monstergirl in this game. It was a great challenge to choose which MoGi she should morph into and an even bigger struggle to give these MoGi useful and fitting abilities. Each MoGi had to gradually give her the advantage that she needs and place each transformation evenly on the map.

Elf jumps higher than Rudy, Okami jumps further and Gold helps Rudy climb walls. Rudy is essentially 4 characters in 1 and each of her transformations has its pros and cons.

The video shows our test level where Rudy practices her new skills against a Soldier. Later on I have some fun in the Survival mode with Rudy. Rudy wont be able to play in Survival but I had to check how see performs against other MoGi. You might see some things going wrong in these videos but we try to address all of them, as this was recorded during our tests.

If by any chance you want to know more about the sex scenes, here are some of the details. Rudy's 3 MoGi transformations can only have sex with Soldiers. Each transformation has it's own Sprite Scene, and each scene is designated to a... hole! So we have oral, anal and vaginal sex to keep everyone happy! Originally we wanted the player to have sex with the Soldiers but that would break the flow and pacing of the game. So we decided that Rudy will create extra holograms to immobilize the Soldiers. 

Rudy's sex scenes are not a shoehorned fanservice but a well thought concept that has actual impact on the gameplay. The Soldiers are not only fierce but also immortal. Against any other character, they always stand up, seconds after they die! Unless you have Rudy. She is such a unique character!

As always, we are open for comments, questions and suggestions!

Ucogi Legacy

With the death of Adobe Flash, most, if not all of Ucogi's games stopped working in any internet browser. A friend of mine is working on a "wrapper", that would be able to run the game's I made over the years. That said, Ucogi games will have to adapt, or seize to exist. So, I had to think and work to preserve Ucogi's legacy.

I revisited my account in hopes to uploading and promoting my games. I'm uploading both .swf and .exe files (hopefully the .exe files will keep working in all computers). These games are given at a minimal cost and people who supports us on Patreon receive these games for free.

This month is a special one. It's the 10th anniversary of Ucogi's first Flash game, "Saint Patrick's Day"! That inspired me to revisit and upload the final version of the game here. But that's not all. As part or Ucogi Legacy, I started exporting Ucogi's original art in the biggest resolution possible! This is awesome not only for posters, but for any kind of merchandise! Depending how it goes I may to the same for more of Ucogi's art, but for now I welcome you to Ucogi's Saint Patrick's Store!

Just like in my page, most products are given at a minimal cost ($1 above their original price), plus you can get discount passwords and even customize the merch to your liking!  
Regarding MoGi Origins, I'm happy to announce that I finished SlimeGirl Blue, which means that all of the normal MoGi in Voms' timeline are completed! The Queens are not far off either, as only Stheno remains to be done from the bosses.

Furthermore, Titan has finished Rudy and her transformations. Rudy has access to very specific places in the map, due to her various platforming abilities, so now we will be able to finalize the levels! Also, we finished three new and original music pieces for the game!
