To all of you who are patiently waiting, we’ll be putting the Book II beta tester application online this weekend. Full details on the beta testing process will be posted then.
We’ll be releasing the video trailer for Book II sometime next week. Ready to see Book II in action for the first time? Don’t forget to check back next week!
Here’s another Book II screen to give you something to look at while you are relaxing on this fine weekend in January.[singlepic id=18 h=320 w=240]
Development continues forward at a dizzying pace! More info soon.
We are now testing with our “internal beta testing crew”. Their focus is game balance and checking on the main quest; meanwhile side-quests and secondary map map details are getting filled in. It is our greatest hope that this will lead into a semi-public beta test in February. Stay tuned!
Basilisk Games wants to wish everyone a very merry Christmas! Thanks for all your support, enthusiasm and patience throughout 2009. As a small gift, we’ve released a new screenshot to Eschalon: Book II. You can see it from the link below!

When we haven’t updated the front page for a few weeks, we start getting a regular stream of emails asking for some news. Well, we’ve said in the past when it is quiet here at Basilisk Games it is because we are hard at work, and that has never been truer than now. Book II is looking great and we are getting ready to run through another internal test in January. The release is not that far off! Please keep checking back, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
1UP recently ran a feature with industry leaders chiming in on the future of single-player RPGs. All sorts of interesting topics are covered. When they get to the section on indie RPGs, Alan Miranda of Ossian Studios mentions Eschalon: Book I and said he enjoyed it. The article is a great read for anyone interested in the genre of single-player RPGs.
