A local community newspaper out of Brooklyn recently talked with Basilisk Games founder Thomas Riegsecker regarding game development and the state of the industry. You can check it out here:
Wow, great responses on our previous poll! Thanks to everyone who voted and commented.
We’ve fixed some scaling issues with our website- some people on mobile devices and narrow browsers had a lot of trouble seeing page content. Let us know if it works better for you now.
Basilisk Games is 10 years old! We would have never thought in 2005 that we’d still be here working on games in 2015. Time flies when you’re having fun, as they say!
To celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we’ve redesigned the website. Our last update was 6 years ago, so yeah, it was time (edit: although, with all the trouble we’ve had during the upgrade, no wonder we waited six years to do it. -BW). We’re also giving away some free T-Shirts with the new Basilisk logo. Visit here for a chance to win one. We’ll have other specials in the next few weeks.
Oh, and we’re sorry that we’re not quite ready to announce our next title. Rest assured that our next project is being worked on as you read this. More info to come…
Basilisk Games founder Thomas Riegsecker was recently interviewed by RPGWatch, discussing game development, Eschalon, and the future. Check it out:

Eschalon: Book III is nominated at Riot Pixels for several GotY awards including Best RPG and Best Sequel. If you agree, head over and give it a vote!
Looking through some old files, we’ve found a copy of the PowerPC version of Eschalon: Book I. Those of you that have vintage Macs sitting around can still get some enjoyment from it, so here it is: the full Mac (PowerPC) version of Book I!
Notice: we are unable to offer any support for this software, so if it doesn’t work for you, we’re sorry! Also, people are going to ask about the PPC version of Book II. It does exist, though we haven’t located the files for that game yet. When we do, we’ll be happy to post it too.
The staff at Basilisk Games want to thank you for a wonderful 2014. The final Eschalon game was launched last February and marked the end of a long road for us. Thank you for being part of it!
As for 2015 and beyond, all we can say right now is that a number of projects are brewing here in the studio. We’ll be working on a few smaller titles outside the Basilisk Games label while we continue to develop our next RPG franchise. There is also a growing number of requests from fans to see the Eschalon series rebuilt with a HD widescreen engine, additional content and extended storyline. Anything is possible; the future is bright with unlimited possibilities, much like it was when we started Book I development back in 2005!
Thanks again for your support. We will see all of you next year!
Better late than never, heh? You can update through your Steam client.
