Xenome episode 2?

Has anyone heard about the 2nd episode yet? I checked their twitter, YouTube, facebook, and the forums and haven't heard anything about it.

I'm betting lack of sales for the first episode has led them not to put out the 2nd. I could be wrong though.

Too bad - the first was actually really good. Quite under appreciated if you ask me...

I liked the first one too. It says on their website that xenome 2 is in development and that there will be a xenome MMO.

Xenome 2 isn't dead, but we didn't have the sales on Ep 1 to drive development as fast as we would like. Our team is still connected, but we're doing other things to pay our bills currently.

We have a fierce passion for the world and characters we created, and we will press on, just not at the pace we would like.

I feel like we did a lot of great things in the game, but there were areas for improvement. One of the elements that I insisted on was a large, continuous map that enabled a player to avoid loading screens almost altogether. A large sandbox approach cost us a lot in terms of development cost, as well as in terms of visual quality.

I would be interested to know people's thoughts on whether or not the presence of loading screens between areas is as big of a pet peeve to them as it is to me, or if it is acceptable/expected and shouldn't come at a cost to visual quality.

It's fine with me as long as you have a universal build for my iPad

Load times are not ideal and problematic if it occurs too frequently. However, if the area between load times is expansive enough it is no problem. Aralon had load times but balanced it well. Also, having a splash screen for loading that is faithful to the enviornment can keep things immersive.

Good luck on Xenome 2!

You know, this game would do well if you did a little advertising and promtion. Update the graphics a bit or add a bit to it and then throw it out there to all the sites. You have a solid product but no one knows about it. You have to keep people watching. Even small tidbits and updates to your website with a little viral marketing about the sequel will push sales of the first episode. Keep it up, you guys have the right idea.

First one was pretty good. It just needed and little more varity to the missions. Fun though. Hope the second one comes out and hits off.
