Xenomarine is a sci-fi-horror themed roguelike dungeon crawler in Linux, Mac and Windows PC game. The games currently available now via Steam Early Access and Itch.io.


Players take on the roll of a space marine. While you explore a dark alien infested space station. Since you start out with nothing but a crowbar. As well as a torch running low on battery. And also some damaged armour. All in the hope of finding powerful alien tech.
Xenomarine combines classic ‘roguelike’ gameplay. Which also includes procedural level generation. And perma death. Along with climatic visuals and an innate interface.

“This is a long term project and I expect to keep. Adding new features and content. Until this is the best game it can possibly be. However I currently expect to release Version 1.0 during 2018.”
