STORY

Eons ago, civilizations across the world of Xandaigdig started becoming nations. Each of these nations formed around DiWATs - wonderous technologies that harness the elemental forces of air, fire, earth, water, ice, lightning, or shadow.

Generations ago, a dark force - called the Gadlum came to invate Xandaigdig to harvest humanity for resources. Outamtched by the invader's otherworldy powers, the seven countries came together to form the Alliance of Nations. The Alliance brought together their DiWATs in order to create Xandata, formidable power armor that puts its wearer - its Xandat - on par with the Gadlum enemy.

Today, that enemy has long been vanquished by the assembled might of united Xandata.

Some believe the Gadlum were vanquished for good... but some think otherwise.

Thanks to this difference of conviction - and culture and ideologies - the Alliance of Nations is splintering. The Suimuran Intelligentsia is no more - wiped off the map during the invasion. The Leviathan Imperium has already seceded due to differences with the Alliance's War Council. The Nation of Hisolaga is threatening to follow suit.

As a Xandat, will you help Xandaigdig flourish - or fail? Your choices will shape the world.

PROJECT HISTORY

Project Xandata started off as a personal project by Gene Gacho, Technical Development Manager at Secret 6. With a lot of hard work and support from Secret 6, it later became a company IP to be developed as a full game!

April - November 2015

Project Xandata started out as Gene's personal project

Inspiration struck to build a shooter in the same vein as Halo/Destiny blended with weapon mechanics of Counter-Strike: GO but with the character and ability customization depth from Guild Wars 2. With too many realistic shooters, not to mention 4x the work it entails, the key influence for the visuals was Mega Man Zero. Lore was decided to be sci-fi with mild Filipino Mythology undertones to add more distinction. Gene worked on the game about 2hrs a day after work plus many hours over the weekend. Occasionally showcasing the game's progress in Secret 6 was integral to its progress.

January 2016

Transition from personal project to a Secret 6 production project

Gene successfully pitched to Secret 6 President, Ron Schaffner, the idea of making his personal project into a company production project. Gene continued to work solo on the project while waiting for manpower to help out!

March 2016

Mike Mika tries it out and game focuses on Multiplayer

Mike Mika of Other Ocean Interactive said MMORPG and eSports would be the focus of gaming in the coming years. Gene then decided to focus the project on multiplayer only and not do any campaign-related features yet.

Confirmed public announcement date and event

Secret 6 makes it official to join ESGS, which was to be held in October of 2016! It was also decided to showcase Project XD (before it became Project Xandata it was called XD, commonly mistaken for the smiley) to be announced to the public through an alpha playtest. Along with the team of interns, other Secret 6 developers shared their spare time to support Project XD. The road to the first ever public alpha started!

October 2016

Public announcement in the E-Sports and Gaming Summit 2016

After long meetings, the team finalized the title of the game to Project Xandata! It was then successfully announced and showcased at ESGS 2016 alongside another Secret 6 IP, a mobile game titled "Panty Thief". We received tremendous positive feedback during the event.

November 2016

Post-ESGS, a whole lot of planning

The team huddled to plan features targeted for PGF 2017 (April) and ESGS 2017 (October), and closed beta. Development, art, and design were fully allocated to the project.
