    Xenome: Episode 1 is a single player role playing game with an apocalyptic take on the future. You are a scientist who wakes up from cryo sleep a few hundred years from now.

    Your memory is foggy - you don't really remember who you are. You soon learn that a lot of people want you - dead or alive. In this hostile paradise, you will learn who you are, who the bad guys are, if there even are bad guys... and why a haz-mat suit is your fashion style of choice.

    The game will be a fully-immersive 3D RPG in a massive, seamless world that is over 3 kilometers long, by 3 kilometers wide. The player will be able to walk around for literal miles (in game) without those pesky loading screens.

    You will explore brutal environments and battle hostile creatures of all forms. Missions, loot, abilities, leveling, exploring- there is something for everyone to get hooked on.


    For more information about the game, and visuals to do what I just said justice, take a look at our official site: www.xenomeonline.com

    Be sure to sign up on our forums while you're there...we're lonely!


    Xenome: Episode 1 will be the first foray into the Xenome universe, followed by a second single-player episode and finally coming together in a full-out Massively Multiplayer Online Game for the iPhone.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    @westam

    As we are currently in Beta, we hope within the next few weeks Xenome will be ready to own.

    Counting contractors, there have been 12 diligent worker ants with their hands in the game as of now.

    We hope to grow with this release, as well as the sequel, then begin to tackle our MMO!

    We have some newer images of Xenome available for your perusal:

    [​IMG]

    (The in-game map. The green arrow does not represent actual player size, nor does the yellow arrow inside of it. Instead of using a tiny spec, which actually would represent player size, we opted for something more visible! Keep in mind that this terrain can be seamlessly navigated, with no loading after booting the game up. That's about 15 square km to dance around/maim enemies in)

    [​IMG]

    (A fight to the finish with a Harpy Droid. We pulled out of this one alive, after fleeing in cowardice, of course)

    (A melee showdown with a Nuker Warrior. His bite is actually worse than his bark)

    Awesome that's a pretty large team. I just shipped my first title, Bar Star. We were a team of 2.5 programmers, and one artist with a 3 week sound contractor (ofcouse 2d is a lot smaller scope thans 3d) :)


    keep me posted and let me know when it ships! us indie developers gotta support each other :)

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

    If I had known this was live last night, I would have bought it instead of Underworlds. I thought it was still a month+ out!

    Damn it. Now I'm $2 short, and the price goes up tomorrow. :(

    I'm bumping this topic because of the new iPod Touch, I've been waiting to play this game since it was announced but never could because I was a 1st Gen owner. Now I should be able to play it on the 10th :)

    Edit: On sale as well.
