A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
NEWS (23 September 2016):
DEMO v2.0.0 RELEASED! Download the latest update to the Demo for free below. The biggest change to the game experience is increased variety, both in terms of new enemy types and map design. But there are also major improvements to the UI, including drag and drop for the inventory, and better support for keyboard-only and mouse-only play styles. See the development blog for a full changelog.
ABOUT THE GAME:
XENOMARINE is a sci-fi-horror themed roguelike in which you play a space marine exploring a dark alien-infested space station. You start out with nothing but a crowbar, a torch running low on battery and some battered armor...and high hopes of finding some powerful alien tech!
(Just in case you don't know what a roguelike is, think: top-down, turn-based rpg with randomly generated levels that are different each time you play. Oh yea, and when you die, you die - no saved games!)
XENOMARINE is currently in development, but is available to download for free in a fully playable Demo (alpha pre-release) version below. This Demo is being updated with new features regularly, but I try to make sure each release is a fun, playable minigame: reaching the end of level 3 should be quite a challenge!
The expected release date for the full game is early 2017. The game will be released first on PC, Mac and Linux, followed by iPad and tablet versions
- Classic turn-based gameplay with lots of strategic depth
- Many thousands of possible weapon and armour combinations (including 'dual-wielding')
- Over 70 individually upgradable weapon types (approx 15 in Demo version).
- Unique useable items such as scanners, stimpacks and directional forcefields.
- Over 150 visually distinct enemy types (11 in Demo version).

- Intuitive mouse and keyboard interface
