Is IonFX still around?
It's been a while since this came out, are the devs working on anything new?

Yeah, they are still around - I was in touch with Bob in October. He mentioned that they are quite focussed on the new game. No date yet - development always ends up taking longer than expected.

Really? I haven't seen anything at all. Do they have a blog, twitter or something?

Nothing about it is public yet beyond a few things they have mentioned in a couple of interviews (and none of that is recent), but they do read their emails at least. When I last contacted Bob they were getting ready for a private reveal to their friends and family (which I will likely be included in), but a public reveal is still some time away.

Who is this "Bob" you speak of?

Bob Johnson, one of the two brothers who made Miasmata - he did most of the creative side of the game and Joe Johnson did the technical side.

I'm buying it for sure. Miasmata was my best game experience ever. Not that it's a perfect game, but the experience I had playing it was just perfect.

Hi everyone! We are indeed still around and working on a new game! As DarkStarSword mentioned, the new game isn't fit for reveal yet. We desperately want to show it off, so I'm really hoping we can do that this year. It is another first-person exploration/survival game. There is a major focus on physics gameplay and negotiating treacherous terrain. The world will be much more vertical. We'll have a cartography mechanic as well, but the game is quite different than Miasmata in fundamental ways. A major philosophy is that we want the player's immediate circumstances to be the focal point for the game's core mechanics.

With so many games coming out these days I rarely get excited about any of them any more... but I can't wait for this one :)
Anything from IonFX post-Miasmata is an instant buy for me.

I hope you guys keep up the great work! You're one of my favorite indie teams by far.

And if you ever get squirrely and want to patch Miasmata up a bit, or maybe forward-port it to your newer engine (I had emailed you about this ages ago), then I don't think anyone would be upset :D

Is Milo a Co-dev on this one as well?

Even with nothing revealed (but with interesting information tidbits now and then!) this is hands down my most awaited video game... above every other AAA, indie, solo projects that I'm waiting for (and I'm waiting for a particularly large amount of games). Miasmata was a lovely piece of work and a singular success on almost every point, and more of its physics approach is definitely something I'm craving for!

It's been over a year since IonFx last posted.
D'you think they're still in action? How much longer until they reveal the new game?
I'm starting to get a little worried that they might've gone kaput by now…

There's loads of potential in having a "much more vertical" world. Maybe that's why Bob and Joe were so excited about their new rock-climbing mechanic mentioned elsewhere.
I anxiously wish them the best of luck.

(Afterwards, maybe they could resurrect their cancelled game, Into Outland, in some way or another? That game was chock-full of potential, too.)

I spent a real good season in Miasmata a few years ago. I hope the Brothers Johnson are finished backstage and are ready to hit it again.
