Need some convincing? Check out these reviews of Super Motherload:

4.5/5 Game Revolution: http://www.gamerevolution.com/review/super-motherload

"an awesome blend of obsessive compulsive profiteering and addictive, satisfying gameplay." 

8/10 Destructoid: http://www.destructoid.com/review-super-motherload-266114.phtml

"Super Motherload is simple enough so that anyone can pick it up and play, but complex enough for mining veterans to keep coming back to fully upgrade characters or even risk playing in hardcore mode. The sci-fi ’80s vibe is delightful and the perfect setting for this ridiculously addicting game. I find myself coming back to it at the end of every day, ready for a new adventure underground."

“Super Motherload gives the same great gameplay of the original, but looks and sounds fantastic.”

Super Motherload will be released in just under a month alongside the Launch of the PS4 on November 15th and we thought it would be the perfect time to release a brand new trailer that better represents the game in it’s finished state. A lot has changed since the original trailer that we released back in October of 2012. This trailer highlights 4 player local co-op gameplay as well as a few things we’ve talked about but haven’t yet shown in any footage (hardcore mode perma-death at 0:25, cutscenes, and dialogue choices).We are also very exited to announce that Super Motherload is making its way into stores along with the PS4 demo kiosk! This is your chance to check out the demo of Super Motherload before the release on November 15th!

Super Motherload Coming to PS4 on Day 1!

2013-08-27 17:36:29 by XGen

Looks like it’s official! Sony has added Super Motherload to their PS4 Preview list in the PlayStation Store with a DAY 1 release date! We feel incredibly lucky to hold a spot between Watch Dogs and Warframe in the preview carousel; two very highly anticipated games here in the XGen office.

We can’t wait until November 15th when you can get your hands on a digital copy of Super Motherload on the PlayStation Store!

Super Motherload Greenlit on Steam!

2013-06-28 18:47:02 by XGen

Steam just let us know that they've Greenlit Super Motherload! We are just really really happy. Pumped, even. Many high fives have been thrown around the office today, and we even broke out the special occasion frosty mugs from the freezer.

Check out the announcement on Steam here: http://steamcommunity.com/games/765/announcement s/detail/1585547885807672930

Thank you all so much for your votes! We have been so impressed with all of the help that we've gotten, it was amazing to see people take this into their own hands and promote the heck out of Super Motherload. It was grassroots marketing at its finest and we couldn't have asked for more dedicated and enthusiastic fans. We have jobs because of people like you, so once again: thank you!

So? Where do we go from here? Well, we are sticking to the current game plan. We're working on the PS4 version at the moment-getting that all ready to submit, and then finish up the rest of the PS3 version. After the console versions are good to go we'll move our focus to Steam.

In the meantime we're looking on a way to clone Steve. Does anyone have any leads on that?

From XGen's press release (http://supermotherload.com/faq-contact/SuperMot herloadPS4PressRelease.pdf)


XGen Studios Announces "Super Motherload" for PlayStation®4 Computer Entertainment System

XGen Studios announced today that they will bring their upcoming title Super Motherload to the PS4TM system in addition to the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. According to the announcement, PS4TM system owners will get an enhanced version of the game later this year.

"We're excited about the PS4TM system and what this next generation console can offer to Super Motherload players" said CEO & Founder Skye Boyes. "In addition to the ample feature set and gameplay planned for the PS3TM, we're leveraging some very interesting new capabilities of the PS4TM."

Of his experience with Sony Computer Entertainment Inc, Boyes adds "it's been overwhelmingly positive; it's clear from the interaction we've had with them that they intend to support smaller developers such as ourselves."

Super Motherload has caught the attention of the gaming press, who have praised its addictive game play. In his preview of the game, Tim Turi of Game Informer explains that "the tight feedback loop makes it hard to put down". Speaking to the puzzle elements, Rock Paper Shotgun writes "the rewards are dopamine-inducing".

Super Motherload is slated for release on both the PS4TM system and PS3TM system later this year, with additional platforms to follow.
