Motherload: The Movie is officially released! Click Here to watch it!

Mediapaja has been diligently keeping us updated in the forums, and it's now time for the unveiling of the film! The flash game Motherload was released in September 2004, before XGen was even a company. It was created out of a simple desire to create a game that we personally would want to play. Featuring entrepreneurial digging, flying, upgrading and even battling some surprising demonic forces, Motherload was the first game that I personally made with XGen. It remains my favorite today.

Kudos to Mediapaja Productions for their excellent work, attempting to remain faithful to the awfully silly material it was based on, and finishing with a truly excellent tribute - And making it free for anyone to enjoy! Cheers!

April 3, 2010

Hope you all enjoyed the April Fools day shenanigans around the net and here on XGen, you can still try out Epic Beard Man Vs. The Trololo Invasion if you missed it!

Even the (suddenly French) forums were abuzz with April Foolery, Mediapaja posted that the Motherload Movie has been sadly canceled and has been replaced by a more ambitious project. Many laughs ensued at XGen.

And yes, the StickRPG2 project has finally received a much needed re-invigoration, the SRPG2 forums are officially reopened and StickRPG2.com has been updated. Stay tuned for more!

March 2, 2010

Blast some green goos, explore a space station and power yourself up with collectibles. Condition continues the great mini-genre of metroidvania/cave-story-esque adventure games.

Heavy Rain, the PS3 exclusive Interactive Drama is quite remarkable. In an industry known for rehashing the same ideas, it dares to be very different; paying off in a big way. Now if only there weren't so many recent PSN problems preventing me from playing it...

Valve has been very busy with Portal 2 hinting by releasing a string of extremely cryptic hints in a Portal patch. Dedicated fans have discovered that the patch adds hidden radio messages; audio beeps that can be decoded into some bizarre images, leading to an old-school Bulletin Board System with further imagery. Exciting!

February 4, 2010

Balloon in a Wasteland leaves you stranded in a hostile desert. You've got to repair and get out of there before the wildlife overruns your camp!

One Button Bob is really simple. He's got a one track mind that is dedicated solely to finding treasure. Give him a hand - just one - influencing his adventures through binary input! Fun!

Bethesda teases us with some new video, setting the stage for the next game in the amazing Fallout universe - Fallout: New Vegas. XGen loves everything Fallout and eagerly waits to try this new incarnation.

January 28, 2010

Carve the pentagram, recite the incantations and Go to Hell! This featured adventure game takes a lot of cues from our own Motherload, the grand-daddy of flash digging adventures.

For you Tweet-o-holics out there, XGen is on Twitter! Now you can stay in touch with our news and releases, instantly! Isn't the internet great?

Apple had it's 'magic' unveiling, revealing the iPad to the world. From the company that is single-handedly dominating the mobile device world, the iPad promises a compromise between the portability of an iPod Touch and the power and usability of a Macbook. Internet opinions are initially on the negative side, with complaints about things not included...

For us though, we can't stop thinking about how great it will be to play Defend Your Castle on the device. Truly sweet.
