exotworking's News

Posted by exotworking - 2 weeks ago

After many years, my first proper Steam release has happened!


THE LONGING is a weird mix of adventure- and idle game, where you play a lonely shadow creature that has to awaken its king...after 400 days. It's nominated for an IGF award and has already sold over 15,000 copies on Steam, which is more than I ever expected.

I'm glad the game is finally out, for it feels like it took an eternity to make. But after all, it's a game about waiting, loneliness and patience, so it was a good fit.

Now I'm back in the world of the living and will start to work on new projects. The pilot for my ultra-sad web series FIELDS OF RAPE will be released in the coming months... the last entry in my "depression era" for now.

It seems like I will be coming to the U.S. of A. for the first time ever this Spring!

Surprisingly, my upcoming idle-adventure THE LONGING is nominated for the "Nuovo" (innovation) Award at the Independent Games Festival in San Francisco.

The game has been at the center of my life for a couple of years now, and I'm glad it's getting some attention. It has been the longest project I ever worked on and that's quite ironic, considering the game is about a very long, 400 day wait.

You can watch a brand new trailer here:

Consider wishlisting it on STEAM, if you like the game:

...in real-time!

Hi folks,

I just released the trailer for my upcoming game :THE LONGING:

It's a mix between idle and adventure game and will come to STEAM.

Check it out:

The game is taking an eternity to make, but I'm very satisfied so far. What do you guys think? :3

Hi friends,

it's been a long time since I posted here, but a lot has happened in the past few years!

Together with Benedikt aka molkman and a few other highly competent inividuals, we founded our first proper animation/games studio, mysteriously named STUDIO SEUFZ.


As some might remember, molkman and I have been working together since 2004 on such smash-hits as Lucky Tower, Lucky Tower 2 or MURDER. Since we finished our diplomas last year, we have started to tackle the animation and games scene once again.

We received funding for my long-time passion project :THE LONGING: which will be released near the end of 2018.

We are also thinking of finally getting our act together and acquiring funds for the elephant in the room that is Lucky Tower 3...


Here's the hot and fresh Teaser for :THE LONGING:

 And here's one mysterious picture of concept art:

Hi there NG,

my latest film is part of the Viewster Film Festvial, which is apparently the largest online festival on earth (well, there aren't that many I guess). The great thing is, that they have tons of money that they are eager to burn. The grand prize is circa 50 000 $ which would come in handy for a new pair of shoes.

If you like my stuff, or hate everyone else, you probably want to help me out by voting for my film "40 Thoughts" here:


[EDIT: The festival is over, so this link won't work anymore]

I'm very thankful for everyone who does vote and I consider him/her an overall cool person. I'm currently ranked #20 out of 142, but only the first 10 will have a chance of winning something. So yeah, every vote helps a lot.


Needless to say, the film will come to Newgrounds soon(ish) as well!


In other news, I'm currently working on a game called "The Longing", where you spend 400 days in a cave.

Here is a sneak peek:


So long...

Believe it or not, but molkman and myself are celebrating 10 YEARS of exotworking.com (*yay*)!

We started out in 2004 by making rather crappy animations and "games" (with flash buttons).

Most of the stuff we did back then isn't even on Newgrounds btw so you might have missed all the phun. If you're interested, you can play our very first "games" here. They are all rather unforgiving and bloodthirsty. And ugly.

Just click on the pics! All the games are from 2004/2005.


Luckily, the days of prepubescent love for violence have faded in favour of more complex themes and thoughts.

This is our new game, it's called "MURDER".

Hello there NG,


I just submitted my film "Quintessence" to the portal! The film was made in 2013, but my university

wouldn't allow me to submit it (until now). 


There is lots of stuff I'd like to submit as well, but those regularies can truly be a bummer.

All I can give you right now is this sad picture (again).

Seeing the leaves and the temperatures fall makes my heart feel great joy.

I made a little film to accompany the coming season. It's a small tribute to The Simpsons.
Watch it here on NG.

Hello folks,

this day marks the release of Lucky Tower 2 here on Newgrounds!

You can play it HERE.

For those who have followed the storyline so far, I thought it might be interesting to hear about future plans on the series.
Lucky Tower 2 is actually a prequel to Lucky Tower 1, but as you might know Lucky Tower 1 ends with the hero being naked at the top of the tower.

Sooo... what about we continue the story from here in a possible Lucky Tower 3?

Being naked and without any armor or weapons, the hero won't be able to fight enemies.
Instead, he would need to hide from them or lure them into traps. Also, the tower would have changed from the first part, making it impossible to take the same routes and forcing the hero to find different ways to escape.

What do you think about this idea?

In other news, I'm currently working on a 12-minute animation about death.

727 days ago, we published Lucky Tower here on Newgrounds.
Time to celebrate this event by the release of a Lucky Tower 2 Trailer!
