We just released the FULL, FREE Microsoft Windows version 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 via the comments section below.


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 incidents, have different personalities/tactics and can pick up and use the same weapons, items and vehicles you can.
  • Competitive play with online leader boards 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.


Xen the Alien can be played offline without an internet connection, but with an internet connection you will have a much more enjoyable experience and be able to:

  • Upload your high scores to the community website for bragging rights!
  • Publish your progress via the @XenTheAlien Twitter Account.
  • View community stats like players with highest scores, best times, etc for each stage.
  • Download and play new stages created by other players.
  • Upload your own stages created using the Level Editor for other players to download.

The Cheat Console will enable you to cycle through the cheat commands and execute them in-game, e.g. get any weapon, vehicle or item you like at any time). The Level Editor will enable you design your own stages and share on the community website for others to download and play.
