Punch! Biff! Zeno Clash SDK Released

By John Walker on July 29th, 2009.

ACE Team have promised they’ll be releasing the SDK for Zeno Clash since release, and because they’re honest folk, now they have. The Source-based first-person thwacker is one of our favourite games of the year, and you’d have to be Earth’s Wrongest Idiot not to find the game’s world fascinating and beautiful. Now using the magic cogs and accompanying text files, you can create your own levels and mods for the game. That link will guide you toward the SDK itself, as well as all the accompanying documentation. If you make something excellent, make sure to let us know.

Punch! Kick! Zeno Clash 2!

By John Walker on May 19th, 2009.

More snouty beasts, please.

ACE Team have just announced the excellent news that they’re already working on a sequel to Zeno Clash, the first-person beat-em-up we poured praise upon last month. Zeno Clash 2, as it’s currently known, will take place after the events of the first game, continuing the adventures of Ghat, this time in a larger world, with mysterious “RPG elements”.

Zeno Clash Demo On Steam

By Jim Rossignol on May 1st, 2009.


The word from the rumbling innards of Steam is that a Zeno Clash demo is now available. The demo contains a slice of the single player campaign, and the first level of the challenge mode, so you’ll be able to sample both. Then, should you fancy, you can compare and contrast your impressions with our verdict.

World Exclusive: The Zeno Clash Review

By RPS on April 19th, 2009.


We’ve been playing Zeno Clash. Developers Ace Team were kind enough to suggest that we should furnish you with the world’s first review of their insane beat ‘em up. Our razor-sharp analysis of defeating elephantmen and bludgeoning lunatics follows.

Jim: Right, our subject today is the esoteric fist ‘em up, Zeno Clash, by Chilean types, Ace Team.
Alec: I liked the bit where I repeatedly punched a bird-man in the face.
Jim: Bird-men are scum.
Kieron: Shall I do a brief fact-o-list of the game so we have the FACTS on the table?
Jim: Yes, facts, because facts are super-true.

Zeno Clash Comic

By Jim Rossignol on March 26th, 2009.


ACE Team have released a Zeno Clash webcomic. Not sure if it’s ongoing – the last page suggests that it might be – but it gives us a touch more flavour of what to expect from the game. Zeno Clash is out in April, and we’ll hopefully bring you a startlingly witty and insight, perhaps even poignant, review of the game before then.

Fish Guns And Knee Bashes: Zeno Clash Trailer

By John Walker on March 6th, 2009.

GET THAT TRUNK-FACED SHIT!

There’s a new video showing Zeno Clash, which I suspect is the best yet. ACE Team’s game has really caught the imagination of many, partly through its remarkable artistic style, and partly through the use of melee combat – people are really interested to find out if this could be the game to satisfyingly pull it off. (With a respectful nod to Dark Messiah, of course.) The new video begins with two of the trio of brothers at the helm of the game explaining the offensive and defensive nature of it all, and then cuts to some lovely in-game examples of the combat in action. It is, of course, below.

Unknown Pleasures 2009: Zeno Clash

By John Walker on January 30th, 2009.

Punch him in the beak!

Zeno Clash is different. Which is refreshing. A melee-focused first-person game in the Source engine, in a world that doesn’t look like anything else around. Which isn’t a thing you get to say about many games. Nominated in the 2009 IGF Awards, the independent game from the start-up Chilean developer is rapidly gathering attention. We’ve had a preview of a few levels, and spoken to one of the founding members of the ACE Team, Edmundo Bordeu, which marvellously you’ll find below.

New Zeno Clash Fisticuffs

By John Walker on December 18th, 2008.

Click me.

Zeno Clash looks strange. Good strange, possibly the best kind, but so very weird. Built using Source, it’s an extremely hands-on FPS, with plenty of gruesome melee punching. There’s a new trailer showing this off, below, along with some interesting character art developers ACE sent our way.

Enormous Nostrils: New Zeno Clash Grabs

By Kieron Gillen on April 24th, 2008.

Your Mum, etc.
It’s at times like this you want to manufacture a rivalry. Claim there’s some battle for the heart of the left-of-centre first-person game between the Chilean Champion Zeno Clash and the Russian Rumbler Tension. But that’d be terribly irresponsible. We’ll make do with noting that the Source-powered game have provided four new images showing off its warped fantasy vision of enormous nostrilled beasts and couples lying around in bed. More grabs beneath the cut.
