Just what the heck is going on at ESP Games?! They release two mind-blowing turn-based strategy games, and then just stop!
This may very well be the thought lingering on your mind for the last 6 months (at least), but rest assured that we’ve been considering our next steps intently, and have several game ideas churning through the tubes of development.
It will be very interesting to see what the next generation of consoles brings, and how well indies are supported on all platforms. It could well be that the next game from our studio launches on more platforms, or even on mobile.
We’ll keep you posted!
Because Microsoft recently made some changes to the pricing structure for Xbox Live Indie Games, we’re now pleased to say we can offer Miasma 1 at the price of 80 Microsoft Points. This is about one US dollar, or about 70 UK pence at the time of writing.
We originally shipped at 400 MSP, then reduced to 240. We couldn’t offer the game at 80 because it was higher than the 50MB file size limit at the time (and we used up almost all the available space at 150MB). But last week, 150MB may now be sold for the cheaper price.
Happy turn-based strategising!
Today we’re unveiling our next project – Miasma 2! It’s the sequel to the strategy game we released last year, and continues the story of Paul, Lina, Errick and Kelli as they battle the oppressive Vilhelm Industries. Get a glimpse of some of our new features, here:
We’re about content complete so just need to put the final polish on the experience and squish the last remaining bugs. Stay tuned for a release date!
I know it looks like we’ve been hibernating for a very long time, but that’s because we’ve been hard at work on our new project!
Stay tuned and we’ll get some info and media to you very soon.
A PC demo of Miasma is now available! If you were interested in Miasma but wanted to give it a try before plonking down your hard-earned dosh, we recommend you give the demo a spin and see how you get on. It showcases the HeadQuarters mode and the second level of the game. Get with the clicky!
If you like it, the full game can be purchased for a mere $2.95 on this very website, and gives you access to all six levels of the campaign and the survival training mode, where you pit your team against ever increasing waves of enemies, and can post your final score online.
And if you have anything to say about the game, please hit us up on our forums!
Louis Garcia of digitalhippos.com recently interviewed ESP Games managing director David Addis, and covered some topics like XNA development and setting up a new studio. Check it out here:
Budding artist Gareth Sissons has given Miasma a fresh lick of paint, supplying us with this exciting new cover:
If you’ve seen the credits in-game, you’ll know that Gareth has also made the UI window graphics used throughout, as well as the ESP Games and Miasma logos.
We here at ESP Games are super excited about a new announcement we’re very close to making, but can’t quite talk about just yet! We’re probably just weeks away from spilling the beans in full, so be sure to check back regularly, and get talking about it in our forums!
