A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
NEWS (22 May 2017):
ALPHA LAUNCH APPROACHING1 The first Alpha version of Xenomarine is now very close to release: check back soon and be among the first players to experience 15 randomly generated levels and a load of new weapons, items and enemy types.
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 (pre-alpha) 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 Alpha is expected to be released in mid-2017. The full game will be released first on PC, Mac and Linux, followed by iPad and tablet versions
