This Wednesday, December 12th — Xi, the most popular Home game gets a follow-up, tons of holiday goodies are coming, Emo Ray expands, Avalon Keep gets King’s chambers, Home Tycoon releases some powerful updates and more!
This week sees the release of Xi: Continuum. There have been many strange things going on in Home recently. It all seems to be coming to a head and this is the week when you need to come together to answer the question on everyone’s mind: What is the Continuum?
For those who get involved with Xi: Continuum from the start, the game will take place over 47 days with new content each day either in Home, on external websites or via community tasks. If you find yourself a bit behind or want to play it at your own pace you can do that as well. Xi: Continuum has been designed to appeal to everyone – those who love getting involved with others, but also for people who like to do things by themselves.
For those who missed out on experiencing Xi in 2009, now is your chance to see what all the fuss is about.
