UFHO2 is a competitive turn-based game of wits. Half strategy, half board game, all fun. • Story Mode, with 10 unique planets, for a total of 30+ matches. • An endless Online Multiplayer mode, with cross-platform goodness (even with the iPad) - friends cannot hide behind platform-related excuses! • An even more endless Local Multiplayer mode - outwitting your friends is more fun when you can see the disappointment in their eyes. • 10 different alien races to unlock, each with its own in-game power - several guests from other indie games (World of Goo, Super Crate Box, Bit.Trip, Blocks That Matter, Gish, Cortex Command) • A wonderful original soundtrack, by composer Francesco D'Andrea. ALPHA VERSION: Being in Alpha state, some features are still under development. What's in: • Local multiplayer up to 4 • Full AI • All characters, all powerups • A tutorial on the basics What is going to be in: • All the other Story Mode levels • Online multiplayer • Account creation • Translations
We created a new "finished" build to submit to the IGF, which is also going to be sent to our backers as a new alpha version.

Submissions to the IGF 2013 are now closed, and we sent UFHO2 as an entry in the closing hours (so much near the end that we didn't even receive the confirmation email :P).
The build we sent is also the new alpha version that I'm going to send to our backers of the campaign this evening, both on the iOS and desktop platforms.
- Tutorial!! An interactive and complete tutorial on the basics of the game.
- Voices for all the characters
- All the characters are unlocked
- AI is really though now, uses powerups LIKE A BOSS
- New improved Gem apparition, now 99% fair
- Posters on the walls in the main menu with references to our friend games (i.e. the ones where guest characters come from) - Can you spot them all 6?
- Minor improvements here and there, and also somewhere else
Also, on a side note, this morning the good folks at IndieDB/ModDB/Desura launched SlideDB, a new sister site specifically for touch/mobile games. And guess what, UFHO2 was 2nd in popularity right after his highness the Holy Minecraft! Cool!
(we're third now, but well...)
So check your inboxes people, because UFHO2 is coming!
