Pagan Online is becoming Pagan: Absent Gods!

August 14, 2020


Pagan Online was and remains a labor of love, made possible in many ways because of its dedicated community. The previous post-launch period showed that the multiplayer game is not sustainable. However, this is not the end! Instead, we decided to turn the game into a single-player title! This is why Pagan Online is transferring to us, switching off its multiplayer servers, and becoming a single-player on August 4. The game remains important to us which is why we decided to undergo this transformation. So, here is Pagan: Absent Gods! The single-player game will include all of the elements of Pagan Online, besides the multiplayer mode and its supporting servers. Read our official announcement for more details.

Mad Head Games is in Home Office Mode!

March 27, 2020

The entire world is presently united in its collective struggle against the COVID-19 pandemic. Mad Head Games was always a company dedicated to making great games, but also equally so to its team members and the wider community. That is why we are presently staying apart from one another in a bid to slow down the spreading of COVID-19 and working remotely as a team from our homes. In spite of the physical distance between us, we are determined to see this through as a company that has never been stronger. We wish, as individuals and a collective, to stay strong and persevere in the face of a common foe to all of us. In the meantime, we will continue to make amazing worlds and do our part in keeping our community safe!
