So long glossy buttons—this is the new XGen Studios website!

We wanted to give XGenStudios.com more than just a coat of paint for this redesign, we've put a lot of effort into thinking about the future of the company and the direction we're heading as a studio. The redesign showcases XGen Studios, first and foremost, as a video game developer. Not only are there less ads, but we've made a lot of usability changes that will make hunting for your next web game addiction that much easier. The main page is now a fresh clean design that we are proud to present to the world as the face of our company.

Feel free to discuss the new site on our forums and if you catch any broken links or strange bugs, let us know in this thread.

October 21, 2014

We teamed up with Roxley Game Laboratory to create a 2-4 player analogue edition of Super Motherload.

The board game is aptly described by Roxley as "a fast paced tile-laying deck-builder featuring beautiful artwork and tightly polished combo-rific gameplay."

We've been working closely with them for over a year, scrutinizing every detail at each stage of the process. The result is something we're proud to add to our catalogue of games. It looks gorgeous, the mechanics work well, and most importantly it's fun to play.

You can pre-order the boardgame from Roxley's website. The game will also be available in select retailers through PSI starting this December.

Super Motherload now has a series of 6 Trading Cards on Steam!

You can use each set of 6 cards to craft 5 badge levels in sequence. Also included with the Trading Card release are 3 backgrounds, 6 emoticons, and a booster pack.

We're currently working on improved music looping and functionality, as well as saving custom key configurations. These will arrive in a future update.

Please note that you will need to select 'Direct 3D' in the Launcher if your video card does not support OpenGL

First of all, we'd like to thank everyone who bought Super Motherload during it's inaugural week on Steam! The level of interest has exceeded expectation, and we've received a lot of excellent feedback and information about the PC version, which has helped us to track down and fix and number of issues faster.

The biggest addition to today's update is Direct3D support; this should allow most Steam users with Intel video cards to play Super Motherload.

We're also aware that players with Radeon cards that do not have Catalyst drivers available to them are experiencing issues; we'd love to hear from you on whether this update addresses "black-screen" issues for you.

We're continuing our laser-focus on making the PC version of Super Motherload a great experience, with a goal of updating the live build frequently.

Thanks for your support!
