Hello boppers! (The first person to guess the source of that quote gets a reward!*)
First things first: Neopolis is coming to PlayStation 4! I wanted to announce this a long time ago, but we had to make sure the deal was done and the papers were signed first :-) I wrote a nice blog post to announce this glorious fact over at the Sony PlayStation Europe blog. It explains some of the motivation behind the game, so for the full skinny go have a peek.
We also created a nice announcement trailer for the occasion. It gives a flavour of the game and the general vibe, but it just scratches the surface of what is to come. I'm currently writing a devblog post that goes into a lot more detail, but have a look anyway.
There are some new screenshots as well. Although we are only at pre-alpha (about a year before release I reckon) the game's visuals are getting pretty exciting. Here is an example so have a look for yourself!
I've added a bunch more screenies to the Neopolis landing page if you want to see more.
Wondering who did the cool music in that trailer? Well, that would be Electric Cafe (Mark Day) who is also creating all the game music and sound design for Neopolis. And guess what; he just released the trailer music and a few cool edits of Neopolis tracks on his soundcloud page. Come and get it!
Finally, just as a treat, I made half of the Neopolis screenplay I wrote available for download. Part of my gamedevelopment process includes writing or creating in other media, and in this case I wrote a pilot episode for a Neopolis tv show (I like to think big). It got a lot of love from my peers in the filmmaking community so I decided to make half of it available for download. If you like cyberpunk give it a read.

Hope you like what you see, hear and read! And please let us know if you have any feedback or questions :-) Rudolf

Hello friends! It's been a while since I updated but that's because we knuckled down and really focused on dev for a long time. (Hopefully it will tell) However, we now have more news and content than you can shake a stick at. I'll spread it out over the next few weeks, but here is a first installment.
Let's talk about StarLit first:
Amazingly, and wonderfully, we are nearing completion of this game, and are about to hit full on beta. We are actually running a little pre-beta right now, which is giving us some very promising results. As we have been on this project for 6 years or so that is quite a relief. Hopefully it will shine through!
For those of you who are new to this game: StarLit is our ode to 2d sci-fi exploration. We tried to make it a progressive and immersive experience while at the same time evoking classic scifi. I think the game has come a loooooong way. an unbelievable amount, and personally I'm very proud with what we are doing with it.
The inimitable Brian Grainger who made the music for Eufloria, is back on board and is creating an amazing soundtrack. The equally amazing Mark Day (from Aqua Kitty fame) is creating all the sfx and ambient audio. I couldn't be more pleased.
(Here's a nice screenshot to show you what things look like these days)
(If you go to the Starlit page you can see a whole raft of new screenies.)
Neopolis and Eufloria RPG have also come along in massive leaps and bounds. I will be adding new screenshots and art on their respective pages soon. I might add some new video soon too. I also hope to be able to give you some big announcements about these titles soon.
So, after being on posting hiatus for a while I am now starting again. \o/ Updates for the Devblog area will follow soon, and new media will arrive in a steady stream.
In short: It's good to be back :-)

We have been busy working behind the scenes on a new site design. The idea is that we can communicate our news, dev-blogs, media, community efforts, and anything else that we want to get out there, in a far more efficient and appealing way.
(For example, Here is a teaser image for our soon-to-be-anounced new Eufloria RPG game.)
Have a look around. There are some important changes and additions, like a newsletter you can sign up to, to stay up to date on all our games (and other updates), and even getting sneak previews and goodies before everybody else does!
We also sell our games directly from this website now. Just browse to the relevant pages and take it from there.
New media and news gets added regularly, while we also created a separate Devblog area for regular development articles.
It's all pretty self-explanatory, so have a browse, check out all the new content for our new games: Eufloria RPG, Neopolis, and StarLit:Colony, and let us know what you think?
