    **** On sale now through August 16!! ****
    NEW! Support added for 2nd generation devices!

    Welcome to Silica Flats. A wasteland ripe for exploration. That is, if you manage to stay alive long enough.
    The land looks different from what you remember, but that's bound to happen to anyone who's been in cryo-stasis for the last 250 years. You've been reactivated during the advent of the Union-Prime war and both factions want your allegiance. More importantly, either faction would rather see you back on ice (in one way or another) than to be aligned with their enemy.

    Welcome to your first immersion into the Xenome Universe. A 3D Action/Adventure RPG that will have you struggling for survival as you unravel the mystery of who you are and what your purpose is.

    “Xenome, Episode 1 has the right stuff when it comes to role-playing” - Pocket Gamer 7/10

    “With a rich storyline, about a dozen hours of gameplay, and a true feeling of freedom, there isn’t much not to like about this game. In fact, if this trend keeps up, the “iPhone’s WoW” may be coming sooner than we think. In other words, do yourself a favor and go buy Xenome now.” - SlideToPlay 4/4

    “It's clear Nine Pound Studios spent a lot of time on the artwork, music, sounds and in-game graphics because they're as good as anything I've experienced in mobile gaming.” - TUAW

    "It begs the question of how you can manage to follow up after something this epic?" - Appspy

    "One of the most robust games in the App Store." - NoDPad

    "An excellent adventure with an engaging storyline... [that] managed to take gaming on the platform an immense step further than anyone else" - Gamezebo

    The first installment of Xenome is the most engaging open-world game to hit the App Store yet.

    Xenome Episode 1 is one of those rare opportunities to enjoy a fully-featured and wholly unique experience on your iDevice and is heartily recommended.

    Despite repetitive missions and performance issues, Xenome, Episode 1 has the right stuff when it comes to role-playing.

    With some more effort and inventiveness, Xenome Episode 1 could have been a great game. I hope that future chapters bear out the promise of its premise and its technical charms. For now, I can only give it a tepid recommendation, as its impressive graphics and expansive environment are dampened by a dull, plodding play experience.

    I look forward to Xenome Episode 2, and hopefully Nine Pound Studios will hire someone to create interesting missions tying up the story.

    Xenome is, in one word, raw. It's very raw, but it has so much potential that I actually cannot wait for it to finally blossom.
