I just heard from the very talented Keiji Yamagishi that his soundtrack for Exile's End has been nominated in the VGMO Annual Game Music Awards!

Check it out here: http://www.vgmonline.net/awards2015nominations/

I love the music that Yamagishi-san created for the game and I'm really pleased to see his outstanding work recognized in this way. He's also up for another award for his chip-tune album "Retro-Active Pt.1". Good luck Yamagishi-san! :)

Hi everyone. You may have noticed that we have a new patch rolled out that has changed and improved the game. Most of the things in this update are a result of YOUR amazing feedback. Be proud! This is the official Survival Mode update! Read on to hear about new modes and a contest where you can win Steam Gift Cards!

"What is survival mode?" you might ask. It's a new mode available along two others (Speedrun Mode and Hard Mode) in the update, along with a host of fixes and improvements, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

-Select "New Game" and then "Survival Mode" from the main menu. The rules are simple:

1. You have a limited amount of time to beat the randomly chosen room.
2. Killing enemies adds time to the clock. (Killing multiple enemies results in a combo that increases your score.)
3. Each room has an exit you must find and unlock before time runs out.
4. If you make it out of the room, you are awarded cash based on your performance.
5. Buy upgrades and ammo with cash to prepare for the next room.
6. How long can you survive and how high can you score?!

Now, we will be adding leaderboard support soon, but until November 13th we want to hear YOUR feedback on Survival Mode. What would you like to see added? What do you think needs fixing? This is your chance to make a real impact on game development!

You'll also want to practice Survival Mode, too!

On November 16th, we'll be rolling out a contest in the Exile's End community on Steam and some partner websites to win ACTUAL Steam Gift cards based on your Survival Mode scores. Details are forthcoming but we have over US$3000 to award!

Patch Notes:

Added survival mode

Added hard mode and dedicated speedrun mode (locked until game completed once)

Added onscreen indication when fast-forwarding through an in-game cutscene.

Offscreen enemies can no longer be shot, and will not shoot at player until onscreen

Several menu/UI fixes, and renamed some menu items to be more clear

Hi everyone, this is Esteban from Marvelous. First off, my most sincere apologies. The developer found a critical bug that affects a majority of users, preventing them from advancing past the Cathedral part of the game. This was believed fixed during testing, but remained in the release version. The developers have fixed it and will be updating the game on Steam, but your current saves will not work. Our deepest apologies for this, but there was no way around it, according to the dev. We are readying a save that will put you at the beginning of the Mining Area with the appropriate items in your inventory and will be distributing it to any that want it. If you haven't started playing yet, don't worry, your save will work just fine no matter how much the game is updated in the future.
