Xenithor is a brand new platformer under development by Michael Keenleyside. The adventure begins having survived a crash landing on a monster-infested moon colony. Our job is to kill the nasties and search for a replacement spaceship before piloting it through to a victorious escape. It's still early days, but the base storyline and map design ideas are nicely taking shape with end-of-level cutscenes also planned to be used as the storyline unfolds. The visual style is dark and moody but soon to be enhanced by eerie music and sampled sounds.

Michael is nuts about Mandarin's STOS Game Creator and wishes to pay homage to Francois Lionet so all development will be done using this product, along with Missing Link and Maestro. The estimated requirements are a 4MB Atari ST with support for hard disk installation. It's brilliant to see another new game in development and I'm personally reminded of Stryx and Baal so cannot wait to what comes next... Watch this space for updates!
