Couchpotato spotted a new Kickstarter update for Geneforge 2 - Infestation:

Geneforge 2 - Infestation Kickstarter, February Update #8

We have lots of great news for all of Geneforge 2’s kind backers. We are thrilled to say, after all of your support and a ton of work, you can finally play the demo of the game! 

Demo Is Available For Steam Next Fest

Steam Next Fest is an event where indie developers can show off demos of their work. For the third time, Spiderweb is taking part. On Geneforge 2 - Infestation’s Steam page, you can now download the first big chunk of the game and play it. The demo will be active for a week, and your saved game progress will carry over to the full game. The demo is at our Steam page.

You can watch the developer (Jeff) stream the game on February 7th (7 PM PST) and February 10th (2 PM PST). Go to the Steam page to see the stream. If you can wishlist it, it would be hugely appreciated. Have fun!

Release Date Announced

We have also announced the official release date. The game will be coming out March 27, 2024 for Windows and Macintosh! The iPad version will follow soon after.

All Backer Surveys Are Out

We are about to send out backer surveys for people who backed at the first two levels (game, and game deluxe edition). Watch your inbox for it. If you haven’t heard from us soon, check your spam filter. We have already sent backer surveys to all other support levels. If you haven’t gotten anything, contact us at

We have sent out beta test invites for all high tier backers. Again, if you haven’t gotten the message, contact us. We will write the hint book soon and send that to all beta testers as well.

Finally, if your backing tier included physical merchandise (pins and stickers), those will be mailed soon.

So, a short update with lots of news. The next month is wrapping up the game, doing PR, setting up the game on stores, and putting out fires. You’ll probably hear from us next when the game is actually out. Thank you again so much for your support, and the game you believed in is on the way!
