We are looking for game testers!


We are currently working on an unannounced project for PC. It is rather early in development but as the production moves forward we are going to need testers for it.

You can apply with this form.

If you get accepted, you will receive an electronic non-disclosure agreement that you need to sign. After that you will receive more information about the project and its future tests. Expect something other than an arcade game.

Feel free to share this with your friends ;)

Server problems fixed!

We've implemented fixes for the issues caused by the meltdown vulnerability. All online interactions in Nex Machina should now work as intended.

Earlier the patches installed by our cloud provider caused our backend to experience unusual load. At first we suspected a DDoS attack as we didn't get more errors than we usually did. However, after further investigation we discovered that a particular backend request was taking an unusually long time. This request scans a very large table for player entries in the leaderboards and due to its massive size the operation had become notably slower after the meltdown patch.

We implemented a workaround and you can see the results below. Turns out it's now even better than it was before!
