|Official site of Xenocide|
Xenocide is a futuristic roguelike developed by Jakub Debski since 2002.
Xenocide is based on a futuristic and horror theme, where the player must try and survive while fighting his way through waves of human, alien, and robotic foes.
Xenocide has, amongst its various features:
- A simple character creation system (for now)
- Persistent levels
- Combat that relies heavily on the use of tactics, guns and devices
- An assortment of various pills (like potions in other games) and tools
- Unique level design algorithms that give each area its own distinct flavour (i.e. the levels onboard the space shuttle are vastly different from the levels in the mines)
- The ability for the player to build his own army of robots from spare parts
- The ability to splice the player's DNA with enemy DNA
- Radiation, anti-rad medicine and mutations
- A single boss monster at the end of one of the areas
- Multiple tile monsters
- Some energy weapons
Xenocide is also planned to have, sometime in the future:
- More items, weapons, armours and monsters
- Boss monsters at the end of most game areas
- An actual ending whereby the player can beat the game
- More energy weapons and flamethrowers
