Xenno The Rogue 1.4 build now live - Development Update 4/10/2017
Release date: First half of 2018
Xenno The Rogue is a retro-style 2D action RPG platformer about religious fanaticism, set in a dystopian medieval fantasy world that has been overrun by the undead.

Besides being a traditional platformer with exploration and treasure collection, Xenno The Rogue is also an action RPG. Spend the treasure and loot you collect on upgrading the damage of your weapons, improving your armor, gaining new skills, power attacks, and improving your luck. You will need to collect all the loot you can to grow stronger and improve in order to keep pace with the enemy units, who are also growing stronger and larger in numbers and more diverse as you progress.

Complimenting the combat, exploration, loot collection, upgrading, and puzzle solving (yes, there are environment puzzles too!) is a satirical story about authoritarian theocracy, apostasy, kidnapping, sorcery, fanaticism, false narratives, ritual sacrifice, and a daemon, with some insanity sprinkled in for added flavor. The story is presented in an illustrated novel style, like pages in a book that you can read through at your own pace.

Play the first 4 stages right now! All feedback is welcome and encouraged.


Xenno The Rogue is, as of right now, a little over 2 years into development, and I anticipate another year or so before full release.

Xenno The Rogue will be appearing in the PAX Rising section at PAX East 2017. If you are attending PAX East, stop by and say hello!

I am but a solo indie developer with a dream. Thank you for helping to make it come true!
