E.X.O. is a scrolling beat'em-up, role-playing, couch game using everything modern graphics has to offer. First intended for the XNA framework in 2D, it switched in 3D to the power and versatility of the Unity engine.

  • Full leveling and ability system for your characters
  • Unique customize-able skill sets and gears
  • Range & melee combat system
  • Up to 4 players full co-op mode on-screen (Couch) and networked
  • Rendered CGI cut-scenes for story immersion
  • In-Orbit vessel bonuses
  • 30+ unique areas to explore



A bunch of space pirates intercepts a distress call from one of the most advanced fighting vessel of the E.X.O. empire fleet. Lead by the mysterious Ruben, the anti-heroes will discover through various adventures, the true purpose of the spaceship.

XNA vs Unity Comparison

News

I was looking through old file and found an old rendering of the game. We worked on this for a while now, and previously we developed in XNA. Here's an image that compares the two.
the image doesn't do it justice but the graphics are somewhat the same, except the textures are slightly different of course.
We used to use .png file side by side to create the levels. What i mean is that the images used in XNA were rendered image from 3ds max. we could apply glows, ambient occlusion passes and baked the lighting directly in the images. So we got something that looked relatively good for a 2D game.
But there was something missing there, real time shadows and lighting. See, since we switched to unity, we were able to add moods to the scenes. Light flickering, toning the lights, imagine doing that with rendered images? It would look weird. And I personally don't have the brains to make something like that work.
Bottom line: 3D game engine = yay.

It's basically a couch game. See it like DD: Shadow Over Mystara or castle crashers for example. With more focus on story and the RPG part ( levels, abilities, gear ), also with modern graphics obviously. I'll be posting images and stuff at least once a week, hope you guys like it. If you have any feedback on anything, please post it :-)
