A downloadable game for Windows

We just released a Windows Demo of our game Xen The Alien and we would really appreciate it if you would give it a play and provide us with your feedback.


Xen the Alien is a third-person action-adventure and puzzle game that follows the exploits of an Alien scout named Xen desperately trying to find his way back home after being marooned on the Alien planet Naytonia. Xen must traverse the different locations of the planet in search of the missing parts of his Ship as well as contend with a mysterious military presence on the planet using either a lethal or stealthy approach, the choice is yours!


Here are the features you can expect from the full game:

  • Rich storyline and narrative in story mode.
  • Explore 8 different and unique locations on the planet Naytonia.
  • Unique cartoon art style.
  • A variety of vehicles to ride, including Hover Boards, Flying Saucers and Rocket Packs.
  • Dispatch enemies with an impressive array of weapons (gauntlets), including Sniper Rifles, Mini Guns, Guided Rocket Launchers and Remote Grenade Launchers.
  • Battle a range of enemies with smart AI that investigate occurrences and have different personalities/strategies. Enemies can pick up and use the same weapons, items and vehicles you can.
  • Competitive play with online leaderboards for each stage (story mode and challenge mode), tracking highest scores and fastest times among players.
  • Design your own stages with the level editor and share on the community website for others to download and play, providing an almost limitless experience.


The demo takes place in the Naytonian Desert; just one of the many locations that will feature in the full game. Find the missing part of your ship and either engage or avoid the enemy soldiers in the area.
