The next Exanima update is scheduled to be released on May 9th. It'll include a massive new area with all new assets, improved lighting/shadows, improved animations, new weapons, armor and other various items not previously seen. Also on May 9th Exanima will be released on GoG.com for early access which is exciting news! :)
Bare Mettle has recently hired another graphics artist which should help speed things along. The devs are making lots of progress in many significant areas and soon we'll be seeing thaumaturgy, outdoor arenas, new terrain system, dialogue, more NPC interactions, etc. Lots of interesting things to look forward to in the near future!
can we have update ...Please
last update was Nov 10 2015 Exanima 0.6 Released
No news on Sui Generis the game for a while
Estimated delivery: May 2014...that's 2 Years ago
a update is well over due
Anyone who's got Windows, how did the game turn out? I've been curious for a while...
I'm glad to hear that you're still truckin'
Sorry if we're quiet here on Kicstarter. Right now we're focused on getting better and richer playable builds out and completing features rather than showcasing them in updates and videos.
There's lots of official information on the game's progress on both our site and on Steam, and we actively interact with the community. It's also just much more effective to show things in their proper context than try to explain them.
While right now you have Exanima, and all progress there is progress on Sui Generis, we are also definitely making progress on SG specifically. We have been improving and refining just about everything well beyond what was originally planned, but there have be no notable changes in direction.
It's understandable that some of you may be upset at how long it's all taking, but the most vocal backers are always pushing us to make the game better, and we ourselves want it to be the best it can be.
Bare Mettle is still working nearly all day, every day on the game. For those asking for Sui Generis updates all you need to do is load up and play Exanima. When games assets/mechanics for Sui Generis are in a playable state they are added to Exanima so they can be tested and polished. Exanima = a front row seat to Sui Generis development.
A year has gone by... "take the money and run " , wait, maybe it's take the money and stay?
You've really mucked up the Arena. I'm holding a weapon and every time i go in im bare handed? Please simplify equipping and management and matchmaking. Seems like a confused mess at the moment.
can we have update Please
Guys, you are waaaay behind schedule, and we are getting kinda worried here. Please give us some reassurance, eh?
I'm still very excited about Sui Generis. However, I'm confused, since Exanima seems to be the game this studio is now focused on.
Will I ever see Sui Generis?
Can I get an idea of when?
Answers to those questions would be greatly appreciated.
Looks like something is broken on the account page. I cannot login with the userid and password I think I have set. Also, the lost password feature just leads to an empty page. Can you help me?
If for some reason you didn't receive an e-mail with instructions and a password you can go directly to your account page on our website and request a new password using your backer e-mail address. From the account page you can download a DRM free copy of the game and claim your steam key(s) as well as anything else you might have access to.
I think you're far enough in your development that I want to try out the game. Where do you download it as a backer?
I completely forgot about this game! So excited to see all the progress!! :)
I think it is time for another update guys!

Thanks for your answer Tony.
I m just pretty sure they said they d talk of physical rewards and never did. :/
Official updates are so rare that it's pretty frustrating for me. ( I'd rather have way shorter mails but once every 2 months than that).
The physical goodies likely won't be sent out until SG is completed. The next KS update will likely be within a week or so when the next Steam patch is released. The devs are still making constant progress and this next patch will be quite massive; it will contain new areas to explore, new skills, new creatures, many improvements to various mechanics including animations and movement, unarmed combat, a journal, GUI enhancements, multiple character slots supported, graphical enhancements (updated old art assets and added new effects), tons of bug fixes... those are just what I could think of off of the top of my head.
Where's the update on t shirts and other physical goodies that you promised some months ago? Where are the updates on the game? At this point I'm really close to ask for a refund.

a update Please
I responded to you once already in a different comment but it's worth repeating: progress on Exanima IS progress on Sui Generis. Everything they're working on for Exanima is also necessary for Sui Generis.
Their current focus is to finish Exanima and then use all of the assets and mechanics that are now fully functional (thanks to being thoroughly tested in Exanima) to finish Sui Generis. This will make Sui Generis a much more polished and complete game.
Hey there; I've commented several times in these forums without reply, which is very concerning considering the nature of the question has not been addressed; Previously (before Exanima was announced last year) you had done a good job of offering updates on the progress of Sui Generis every 1-3 months.
Since Exanima was released - a game which you have called a prequel to Sui Generis - we have heard nothing about progress on Sui Generis. You have confirmed several times that Exanima is *not* the game we backed, it is merely a holdover until we get the game we all paid for and are looking forward to.
However, information about actual progress on Sui Generis itself has been completely absent for the last year. I'm not exaggerating; even as far back as October 2014, the only information given in updates was about "the Prelude alpha." Nothing on Sui Generis.
I'm writing because I'd like to hear from you about the actual game. I feel it is reasonable, after a year, to wish to know that progress on *actual Sui Generis* is still happening, and where you're at, and what you've been up to in terms of getting that going.
I get that Exanima was an intermediate goal and that producing it has allowed you to pursue certain proofs-of-concept and see the community's reaction to the ideas you have presented, and that's great. I'm not suggesting that there is no value in producing Exanima. I would simply like to know what is happening in the terms of Sui Generis, rather than this other project which includes some of the same ideas.
Considering it has been a year and my other two such requests have gone unanswered, if this also goes unanswered I will begin to seriously question this project. Which would make me sad, I've believed in you guys from the beginning and I'd really like to see positive results, but this whole Exanima distraction combined with relative silence on the Sui Generis side of things has me worried.
this look cool :)
Game is not full release yet, beta at the moment.
Hello - I sent a message via Kickstarter, but haven't received a response. I haven't received my links to download tie final version of Examina. I did get the download for the beta, but not the final version. Could someone send me the links for the final download? Thanks!
I totally did not notice the name change. Btw the game is great.
I forgot about this game during the development over the past few years... Downloaded last night and holy cow. Never been more frustrated and genuinely to come home and play a game in a long time. You guys did amazing!
I concur on a GOG release done the line.
This game is too beautiful and awesome to not be among its species with the classics of old. :)
scratch that, found em :)
I can see no keys in my account page, tried to look yesterday to no avail so waited for today, where am i supposed to look? i have no email with any keys either
Oops, please delete my last comment as I found the direct download link at your site ^_^
"Exanima is now available for download to all our backers."
Please consider GOG for those of us backers who do will use STEAM in any way and who backed the project -ENTIRELY- because of its promise for DRM alternatives :)
To get out of the first room left click on the door, hold the button down and drag the door open. Some doors open towards you while others open in the opposite direction. If a door is locked when you attempt to open it you'll hear a clicking noise that signifies it requires a key. I highly suggest you read the quickstart guide located in the game options menu.
How do you get out of the first room? Completely stuck for 30 mins
I am live streaming Exanima beta gameplay here:
Come watch and chat! :)
I suggest you read their Kickstarter updates. They explain everything quite clearly. But a simple answer to your question is that Exanima is a prelude to Sui Generis. If you want to know more read the in-depth updates ;).
ok what is Exanima ?
what happened to Sui Generis ?
I'm afraid we're not ready to support additional platforms just yet. Hopefully this will change soon.
If you're having issues with the installer you might want to try downloading the self extracting archive instead.
The game is available directly from us and is completely DRM free. If you are not a backer it's your choice how you obtain the game and you will be subject to whatever your chosen distribution platform features.
So very excited for Examina! I've been anticipating this day for a long time!!
@mikebert The game is still DRM free from their website, granted you are at an appropriate contribution tier.
Hey hypocrites, what happened to DRM free?
Anyone else having problems installing this on windows 10 build 10041? It hangs at 100% on 'extracting files'.
No Mac support for the beta? :(
For the moment only backers with beta access, but we have submitted Exanima for greenlight (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/…) which seems to be going well so far and once it's live on Early Access all backers will receive a copy (including a Steam key).
Thanks for the update. Does everyone get to participate in the Exanima beta or just the folks who kicked in for the Suis Generis beta tier and above?
Thank you for the update. I'd love to try out the beta but the link you gave is coming up with a 404 error.
