Great Game by Trollgames:
Completely renewed fantasy game „Xhodon“ breaks through
New technology, new design and completely reengineered interface Xhodon is about to raise the bar again from its already achieved success.
Somewhere near the German Alps on October 10th 2008 – The young Trollgames GmbH, ambitious developer of online browser games, starts with its very popular strategy game Xhodon into a new round, after a successful testing phase.
New technology, new design, new features
Xhodon has existed for two years on the market and has been tested and continuously improved by more than 60.000 players worldwide. During this time so many ideas have been collected that game operations have decided to make a fresh start. So Xhodon was equipped with up-to-date Ajax technology to guarantee maximal fun through fast load times. Aside from that the compeltely renewed game design raised a wave of enthusiasm in the Community and was selected as the „most beautiful browser game of the world“ by the players. Existing bugs were fixed and the user interface was adjusted to fit into the gameplay intuitively with lots of players' experience.
"Trollgames‘ Strategy game Xhodon has an extraordinary and positive community. Our players were the top motivators for us to start Xhodon professionally in order to be able to add top-support, quick bugfixing and ongoing supervision as well as to work on continuous enhancements and improvements. This led us to the conclusion that setting this up commercially as a start-up company would enable us to do this redesign, technology refresh and completely changed presentation," says Dennis Reimer, one of the founders and managing directors of Trollgames.
"This big start is really exciting for the Team and our Community. We looked for new ways during the development and added some unique game elements and we wonder what the feedback from new local and international players will be."
In Xhodon every player can decide on his own way to play, become a trader and work on diplomacy or become a feared war magician, who hunts alone or with others for the sacred magical Artefacts and Items. This new version of Xhodon actively encourages community through the exchange of Pearls between players and individual profiles that allow every player to create his personal presentation and tell his own story. Xhodon not only is fun for some minutes in between work or during breaks, but offers good long term motivation through its complexity and playing depth.
Trollgames GmbH, at home in the green Allgaeu region, develops and operates Xhodon Fantasy Browser Game. The three founders of the young start-up, Johanna Riemann, Jascha Schubert und Dennis Reimer are passioniate browser game players themselves. Dennis and Jascha jointly founded the first version of Xhodon in 2006 as a leisure time project. The overwhelmingly positive feedback from the players, that led to the title Best Browsergame 2007 in the category "Leisure Time Project" and numerous nominations at Galaxy-News and Gamesdynamite as the Best Roleplay Game and Best Browser Game as well as the favourable trends for browser games encouraged the founders to quit their old jobs and focus 100 percent on Xhodon. The GmbH was established in May 2008 and successfully went through the financial aspects with some private investors and some experienced business angels from the browser game scene. Currently Trollgames GmbH has four permanent employees and seven freelancers who regularly help improving the new version of Xhodon.
