2x0ng on Desura

Procedural indie puzzler 2x0ng brings new-style arcade action to Desura this Friday, July 12

July 9, 2013 — We are pleased to announce the impending release of 2x0ng on the Desura digital game distribution platform. 2x0ng will be available for Windows and Linux this Friday, July 12, 2013; a Mac version is in preparation.


About the game

2x0ng is a procedural puzzle combat roguelike game rendered in an 8-bit retro style. Pronounce it "TWO-zong". You control a little pixel-person running through a maze; with your bouncing, color-changing Squareball, you can match colors to unlock new areas, and destroy an onslaught of enemies as you make your way to the exit.

Previous versions of 2x0ng were featured earlier this year on Indie Impressions, Tigsource, Indie Statik, Destructoid, Free Indie Games, Free Gamer, and GamingOnLinux, among others.

2x0ng is Free Software, with its Common Lisp source code distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL Version 3 and media assets under the Creative Commons BY-SA license. The game also includes accessibility support for users with red/green color blindness.
