The Super Motherload team is hard at...

January 27, 2012

The Super Motherload team is hard at work putting the finishing touches on a playable demo of the game in preparation for it's debut to press and industry at GDC Play on March 6th. For the uninitiated, GDC is the Game Developer's Conference, held each year in San Francisco. Sadly, you need an expo pass to get in; we'd love to show it off to everyone, but a burly squadron of tough-talking security guards sporting A-team getups will stop at nothing to prevent the general public from getting their hands on it early (but seriously, they won't let you in if you don't have a pass). GDC Play is a new area of expo floor this year specifically for Indie Devs; we'll be at Booth #5.

Check out the brand-new gameplay teaser for Super Motherload.

Happy Internet Blackout Day!

Although, in all seriousness, SOPA and Protect-IP threaten our internet freedoms in a very real and scary way. XGenStudios wholeheartedly supports the efforts of sites like Wikipedia, Destructoid and Reddit. The latter of which has a really great summary and video of exactly what the big deal is, so head over there and check it out.

October 20, 2011

We began to outgrow our current studio space last year, prompting us to head out on the hunt for a new spot to grow XGen's next crop of games. We found the perfect space, but the problem was that; it was empty space. With 4 walls, a floor, and too many ideas, we needed a bit of help; I hired a designer and a construction crew and we got to work. It took a designer capable of bringing to fruition our lofty dreams on a not-so-lofty budget, and a construction crew with enough patience to build the unconventional. Taylor designed custom pixel-art wallpaper for the lobby and an original damask (complete with hidden XGen characters) for the secret room. The "barn-board" for the walls was located and reclaimed from a mill West of the city, and custom "XGen Blue" paint shipped up from the states. More substantial magnetic whiteboard arrived to replace our shower-board solution, and books were collected from second-hand stores to build bookshelves... out of books. We've got living moss on one wall and a bear, a gift from a construction worker, on another.

After a year of planning, designing, revising & building, we moved in this April. While the pool table isn't quite levelled yet, and the blinds are in transit, we couldn't wait any longer to share the first few pictures.

We'll be sharing more photos in the months to come as we complete the finishing touches; I hope you enjoy the first few pictures of our new digs.

August 25, 2011

With a larger underground area to explore, returning to the surface in Super Motherload isn't always practical.

Introducing Outposts; these subterranean facilities allow for underground pit stops, allowing you to refuel, repair, sell minerals and upgrade your pod deep under the surface of Mars.

Each outposts is also equipped with a teleporter. Once activated, outpost teleporters allow you to travel deeper underground following a return to shallower depths or the surface itself.

Visit the Super Motherload website for more.
