Hey Underworld Dealers and Fans, we’ve got some news. May sound as a bit of a downer at first, but believe it or not — it’s actually great news!
The time has come to retire Underworld to give way for the new version coming. As of today, the game is no longer available in either the AppStore or Google Play. You’ll be able to continue playing until October 15th, 2013. All your profiles will be stored safely with us in order to give you head-start bonuses when the sequel comes out!
Hard to believe it’s been almost 5 years since the very first launch of the game. Some of the old-timers may still recall the game being originally known as Drug Lords and distributed via Cydia, a jailbreak alternative to the AppStore back then. It was quite a ride with countless ups and downs and we’re incredibly thankful to all our fans for staying with us, for your continuous support and enthusiasm along the way!
Now to the best part. Despite a few recent hiccups & delays during the development, we continue working on the sequel, full steam ahead! In fact, we just passed an early Alpha and are totally happy with it. We’re extremely careful announcing exact dates this time, but we’ll keep you posted on everything that happens with the development, when to expect Closed Beta and such. We know, the wait is exhausting, but we’re doing our best to make it worth your while!
If you want to stay in the loop and get a priority to try out Beta when it’s out, consider subscribing to our Facebook page: Underworld 2: Black Market. As usual, we’re extremely happy to hear from you, so whether you’ve got a question about the game, our progress and whatnot or just dropped by to say hello — you’re always welcome!
Let’s not turn this into a ‘year roundup’ post, but 2010 was pretty awesome, really. We finally grew into a fully-sized small studio, moved to a new office and released Vampire Rush, which was taken absolutely great by players and received Gold Award from the press!
During 2010, we had to dedicate a lot of time to a few work-for-hire projects. This has already been changed with the release of Vampire Rush and you will definitely see more games from A Steroids in the 2011!
Today is March 17, the day A-Steroids was founded and started working. We are a startup company, incubated by SPL Partners.
We do believe that people can get top class entertainment even on mobile devices. And this is the reason we have created A-Steroids. The platforms we are now focusing on are iPhone/iPod SDK and Google Android. We believe both of them to be the best choice for new generation entertainment products.
A-Steroids team consists of the professionals with strong background in mobile entertainment. Our experience comes from projects with publishers as EA Mobile, THQ Wireless, Infospace. One of our remarkable products is Entis Fantasy – world’s first mobile MMORPG, created for Nival Online.
We all are looking forward to surprise you with our upcoming products.
