Hello. I am pleased to announce the release of XONG 1.4; thanks so much to everyone who provided feedback and bug reports, as many of the fixes/suggestions made it into 1.4. XONG is available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX (Intel only for now), and GNU/Linux (32-bit binaries currently available, 64-bit coming).

Highlights include bugfixes, graphical changes, and a whole new tutorial zone.

Downloads are available from and the webpage for XONG (with installation notes, please read!) may be found at

The download area also includes something called Sanctuary. This is an early testing release of a "ambient roguelike vignette" I'm working on. Feedback there appreciated too. (The installation notes from XONG linked above also apply, because the same game engine is used.)

A few pics of XONG and Sanctuary:

For reason, I want to think Sanctuary reminds me of some old Atari game I read about a long time ago...something with an Archer after a Dragon or some such in a forest.

Congrats on these latest milestones.   8)
