Time keeps on ticking ticking, into the future..

It has been more than a month since we have said anything after getting cracked by SKIDROW and RELOADED. We watched the downloads of the torrent here and things have finally died down and returned to normal.

While all that was going on we updated our code base to NeoAxis 1.0 that has finally come out after working with it since 2007 and version 0.5x it has been lots of fun getting to 1.0. Much congrats to all the other developers in the NA community here is a personal shout out for you. See you when 2.0 arrives :D


EPISODE 1: [ppbranchg11587button]


Getting cracked and put on the scene did two things for us a company and Incognito as an indie game. It gave us tons of exposure and hits to our site and videos that we would have really never been able to achieve without being listed by such "high profile" groups.

The only thing we did not like was the potential for lost sales. The crackers basically give you another file that you can put into the games directory that overwrites our own. After this you can enter a specific number and it will always activate. To be honest it was well done and we applaud the crackers for their skill.


EPISODE 2: [ppbranchg12734button]

All things considered this is normally a privilege reserved for AAA titles and games much bigger than us. We still believe that all they wanted to do was offer a better product and one without a serial number tied to it. How can we fix this without getting locked into some perpetual cycle of trying to outsmart others?

Well some changes have to be made obviously. If the game is so popular that it needs to be cracked we will make it more available to the gaming masses. Removing the DRM system that we built back in 2008 felt really good after it was done. The next thing we did was decide to lower the price and try to capture some of the market that decided to play it for free. Maybe $9.99 (before tax) is asking to much. Each episode of Incognito will now only be $4.99.


EPISODE 3: [ppbranchg13305button]

So now instead of all 3 episodes costing you a total of $29.97 it will now only cost $14.97.

What else have we been up to you ask? What else could you have possibly done in the last month other than this? After we did all that other awesome stuff we wanted to do something even more awesome so we decided to finally create a official Linux port for all 3 episodes of Incognito.

In the next few weeks all the download portals we work with (GamersGate, Desura, BeamDog, Impulse, Apple AppStore) will be receiving this new version with DRM removed and we will look into possible ways to distribute for Linux so we don't overwhelm our main server.

Things are busy right now and with any hope will only get even busier. See you later this year with more info on Episode 4.

Too bad this is not supported natively on linux. Thanks for removing that DRM, it is appreciated.

Is the Linux release native or bundled with Wine? Last I knew NeoAxis didn't support Linux.

Regarding Linux and the usage of Wine here is what the README that comes with the game has to say:

-----
WHY ARE YOU USING WINE AND MONO?
-----

In order to run the game we make use of Wine to kickstart our Mono Runtime wrapper which is used on Windows and Mac OSX. Once this is up and running you will find it should not be buggy or leak memory of any kind. Emphasis on the notion that this is not a hack but indeed a genuine attempt to bring Incognito to Linux in a formidable way.

-----
ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE A NATIVE PORT EVENTUALLY?
-----

Yes. Before we go porting the engine to the various popular Linux distro's we want to test the market with this release. If this begins going someplace and Linux is the place to be we will put fourth the time needed to create a native port of ALL the underlying technology that powers Incognito Episodes.

Port it to Linux natively and THEN I'll buy it. Don't expect us to buy low-quality, bad performing wine ports. Mono just makes it even worse when used in addition to Wine. Seriously.

Then buy it on Windows or Mac? We are testing the waters with Linux communities. Comments like your don't exactly motivate us to write native Linux code. It's a two-way street with indie games.
