I grew up near the small town of Grassland, Alberta. Currently live in Edmonton and am working on my first title "Silas", which is nearly complete. I started working on this a little over 6 years ago when I was in highschool yet. It was made part-time and full-time over this period.

lol, there is a few cheats that are pretty insane, including one that makes the karts go extremely fast. But you gotta unlock them by winning gold in the cups.

Thanks. I'm currently going out to work my job which doesn't have great internet, but hopefully next weekend sometime I can upload it. In the meantime, perhaps you can just download it off my main website.

Yeah I tried really hard to get through to Steam but no luck on that front yet. There have been quite a few people asking for it on there already, but theres nothing I can do on my own. :(

But I hope you guys still support it. I made a great setup program for it, or you can always use other sites like Desura and Direct2Drive. :)

The game will not be releasing on the 26th due to some technical issues I've encountered. However, it will still be releasing and is looking like early September. Sorry to everyone looking forward to playing it. But this work will make it even better.

Thanks! This is my first game so it will be quite an experience. As for the online, I think I will let the demo players play with those who bought the full game(although, with only 2 levels). That way more people will be on it. :)

There are 4 maps available -

For Battle:

Fire Dunes
Snowy Pines

For Racing:

Wispy Temple
Suhn Desert

I outlined this above... but I think I should change the error message in the demo version to tell you what levels are available if you choose the wrong one to avoid confusion.

Thanks for letting me know what you think! :)

Kevins right, I've been working really hard on this, and I need to get good reviews on release. This is my first title, and it will have wide digital distribution, so I want it to be as bug free as possible from my very limited reasources(all I have is time). But the release dates have been inked this time, and it is an very early Q3. The reason I am still holding off on the official release date is because I need to make sure my next beta fixed all the multiplayer crash bugs I wanted it to.

Other than that, the game is feature complete now and I just need to fill out the merc modes and museaum.

Sorry for making everyone wait so long. I understand that it frusterates everyone, probably me the most though. I hope my future projects will have more reasource past time. As well, I don't plan on working alone in the future. And of course I'll have all the experience to schedule more properly.

Yeah, hopefully they pick it up after the release. :)

The next beta has been pushed back to Early May. However, it will have many big updates. Such as, Perks, World-Wide leaderboards for Deathmatch, Racing, Mercs, Time Trails. An online future game posting board. A message board. Online lobby stats. Online Gui Upgraded Graphics, Plus much more.

Official Release date will be announced in Early May as well.

Work on Silas is going very well! I am nearly done the next beta release. It will feature some major new online features. As well, I hopefully fixed all the major online crash bugs from the last beta. Should be released within a week.

The GDC was well, and everyone can look forward to seeing Silas release on some of the major Digital Distributors in the summer(not Steam though, email them if you want to see Silas on Steam!). Just put a line in there that you'd like to see this game on Steam.

steamworks@valvesoftware.com

I am not sure why Valve doesn't want to put the game on Steam yet and the emails are rarely returned. But I've heard this is very common with start-up indies like myself trying to get on Steam. All the other Digital Distributor's loved it though! :)

Glad you like it Theon! And thanks for the encouragment. :)

You can already play all the online and LAN based arena modes and fly. You can freely install demo on all your lan computers and play your friends, or try round up some people to play online. I understand it's fairly hard to find people hosting online games right now, mostly because this demo has limited release, but I also plan to included MANY updates in the next month to make it a great online community. For instance, a message board, a gameslot board(for posting the time you will be hosting a game), and much more! Plus I will fix all multiplayer bugs. We actually were playing some games for 5 hrs the other day, but they were organized through some engine forums. I am now at GDC so can't participate for a week. :(

If you find any bugs or want certain features, let me know at the forums. www.exaltstudios.com/forums

Thanks for the pre-order! Every bit really helps. :)

First Beta is looking to be only a week away! I have been working hard and finished the games content. All that is left is to finish up some online programming, and fill out a few single player modes with more content. Aside from this, I am looking to have about 2 months of pure beta testing and bug fixing/polishing anything that comes up before releasing it. :|)

hehe, well it's not as lame as the blue shell. As it won't kill the person in 1st place. It's fairly hard to obtain 1st in Silas, so I don't think it's fair to punish the person with a blue shell type weapon when they get there. The hammer and ice king will hurt all the players aside from you, with the hammer being a bit like the lighting bolt. But luckily I'm not making it happen as often as the lighting bolt. As I want skill to be more important than getting a better random weapon. :)
