Feature: Super Smash Bros + Street Fighter = Roguelike?

Zeno Clash Dev On Abyss Odyssey’s Procedural Insanity

You certainly can't knock Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages developer ACE Team for a lack of ambition. Their previous titles' massive scope and rampant, otherworldly weirdness demonstrated that in spades. So how do you follow that? Why, by jutting off in an entirely different direction, of course. Abyss Odyssey is a procedurally generated, Street Fighter and Super Smash Bros-inspired roguelike-like (but not quite) um...…

After The Zeno Clash: Abyss Odyssey

With Zeno Clash developers ACE Team at the helm, Abyss Odyssey will no doubt take place in quite an odd world, but it definitely won't take place in Oddworld, even if the title does look a bit like Abe's Oddysee. The newly announced game is a side-scroller like Oddworld's first, but ACE Team are sticking to their principles by concentrating on creatures engaging in fisticuffs.…

Zenomorph: The Art And Evolution Of Zeno Clash

This is the first in a weekly series of features about the art and art technology of PC games, in association with website Dead End Thrills. More from Zeno Clash II can be found here. Click the images below for biggies. Punch me in my Salvador Dali and tell me I'm not dreaming. Did just fifteen people really make Zeno Clash II? Of course they…

Weirdbiff: Zeno Clash II Arriving In 2013!

There's going to be a Zeno Clash sequel in 2013! Trailer below, showing Father-Mother and Ghat leaping from a huge building, with Golem watching. Then there are huge landscapes, a giant arm sticking out of the ground, and plenty of weird-looking cities. Ace Team explain that it's going to be a much bigger deal this time: "The world of Zenozoik comes alive like never before,…

Not Waiting Ages For Rock Of Ages

Rock of Ages is a game RPS has been terribly excited about for quite some time. Why? Well, because it's about rolling a giant, apparently sentient and sadistic boulder through art, history and the history of art, with graphics by someone doing a very convincing Terry Gilliam impression. VIDEOGAMES! Our desperate anticipation for this next game from the Zeno Clash madmen should soon be over…

Culture Of Clash: Zeno Clash Postmortem

The Gamasutra postmortem on previous RPS-fave Zeno Clash caught my eye. They're almost always a good read, but from a game coming from a very different place than most of the industry (both literally and figuratively), there's much to learn. Choice details include how it emerged from a previous failed project - the Lithtech-2 based Zenozoik - and how the experience of that made them…

Splendindie-bundle on D2D

Direct 2 Drive have announced they're running and indie games bundle until Sunday. The bundle contains Democracy 2, Cogs, Zeno Clash, The Path, and Defence Grid. All great games. Which rather reveals the problem with the pack: you probably own a couple of these games already. Nevertheless, for those aberrant consumers among us, the deal is good. £11.50 for Britons, and $17.75 for North Americans.…

Punch! Biff! Zeno Clash SDK Released

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…

Zeno Clash Compo: Ten Copies Up For Grabs

Zeno Clash goes live today on Steam and Direct2Drive, and you'll have noticed that we were really rather taken with it. The melee combat packs an extraordinary punch, accompanied by jaw-dropping world and character design. We've strongly recommended you buy it. But how about one better - we've arranged with developers Ace Team to give away ten copies of the game via Steam.

World Exclusive: The Zeno Clash Review

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…

Zeno Clash Comic

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

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…
