The game is done and ready to go however we are just in the final polish stages and are super excited by how XGen’s first point-and-click adventure and brand new IP has come together.

May 27, 2017

XGen has been very busy the past month putting some extra time into polishing The Low Road. This includes making sure that all 32000+ words of dialogue are fully voiced over. We also have some really exciting news about a few competitions we are involved in.

Last week in Vancouver we were so excited to show off The Low Road at Full Indie! Thank you to everyone who dropped by our table to chat an demo the game! Over 200 people showed up and it looked like there were around 20 indie developers showing off games they've been working on. We won an award that night! Full Indie partnered with Indie Prize to offer an award, giving us the ability to show The Low Road at Casual Connect in Seattle in August!

And last but not least... we need your help with some votes! Check out this video we made about XGen for our submission to a prize that is celebrates Canadians for Canada's 150th birthday! Head on over to this link to check out our submission and to see what other Albertans are up to: XGen Studios - Canada150in150

Hey again! ...

February 10, 2017

Hey again!

A few weeks ago we had an opportunity to show off a demo of The Low Road to a bunch of local gamers at Dark Matters here in Edmonton. It was a really great opportunity to get some valuable feedback, and as usual it’s super rewarding and motivating to see people interact with something we’ve been putting our blood sweat and tears into for the last couple of years.

There’s still quite a bit of polish work to do but we are plugging away. We’ve been doing weekly team play-throughs over Google Hangouts which has been a really good way for us to brainstorm solutions to gameplay and clarity issues. Have a look at how Robyn addressed a clarity issue in the pickpocket puzzle by illustrating to the player where the collision points are:

December Already!

Christmas is only 14 days away! But who’s counting? We are still working away at The Low Road and are excited to be entering the final phase of development. An official launch date is yet to be announced but we can promise things are looking awesome and are super thrilled by how the game is coming along.

The holiday season is also the perfect time to catch up on titles you may have missed from the XGen library. Check out what we have to offer here: XGen Store

Wow, It's almost Halloween!

The team has been busy plugging away at The Low Road. The story is getting more polished and refined every day and additional character and environment animations are adding a lot of life to the scenes. While there's still much to be done, it feels great to start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.


Leif will be in New York City for the Trick Or Treat: Halloween Game Expo! Come on down to the Microsoft office at Time Square to try out a demo of our point and click adventure game: The Low Road! You might even see Leif in costume, though I think he's in need of ideas — tweet us costume Ideas for Leif! CLICK HERE to RSVP and for more event details.


Let us know if you see a costume as cool as the "boy and his tauntaun" out trick-or-treating!


Talk to you soon!

It’s been a while since our last...

August 16, 2016

It’s been a while since our last update. We’re working hard on The Low Road and are excited to show off the progress we’re making! Currently we have the majority of the core work on episode 1 completed and are working to polish and add the extensive voiceovers. It’s going to be another few months of hard work before everything is finished but in the meantime we have a teaser image to keep you occupied.

Pickpocket Puzzle

In July we had a large spike in traffic for Pillage the Village, one of our older games. Upon investigating it turned out that Markiplier had done a video of the game. You can check out his video here.

We also saw another cool video by WildWolf109 playing through the original Stick RPG. If you would like a bit of nostalgia or simply want to watch some Youtube content you can check his video out here.

Happy summer!

What better way to start the summer season than to stay inside and play video games all day (sorry to moms everywhere). I've been addicted to Overwatch lately, but maybe one of these days I'll step outside and get some sun. We're super excited to participate in the Steam Summer Sale. From now until July 4th you can grab a copy of Super Motherload and Stick RPG 2 at 80% off!

Super Motherload on Steam ($14.99 $2.99!)
