Please read through the following FAQ before posting new topics or asking questions in the forums:

  • 1) Q: When was Zeno Clash released?

A: April 21st 2009.


  • 2) Q: What is the game like? Is Zeno Clash an RPG? Does it have large explorable areas?

A: Zeno Clash is a fighting game mixed with a FPS. It is not a RPG and does not have huge explorable areas like Elderscrolls: Oblivion. (Remember this is an indie game...)

The gameplay is quite unlike other first person games. The game focuses heavily on melee combat and has a story oriented adventure. Players get to travel to unique and unusual locations and meet with strange characters from a completely alien world. The story is about Ghat who is son of an impressive hermaphrodite creature named Father-Mother. Ghat has a conflict with his family and will find himself a fugitive and escaping to the borders of the known world.

The weapons of the game include strange pistols and contraptions made of junk plus some bashing weapons to fight against heavyweight characters. The combat mechanics work so that fighting at a distance or with your fists is an option at all moments.


  • 3) Q: So, how long is the game?

A: The game lasts from 4-5 hours in the single player campaign. It also includes a unlockable Survival Mode with a ranking system to extend replayability.


  • 4) Q: Does the game have any other game modes? (Other than Singleplayer)

A: Yes. The game has a Challenge Mode. In the Chellenge Mode players are ranked against their friends in time and health categories. The objective is to survive a 'tower challenge' where each floor has a new set of adversaries. This feature is great for those who enjoy the combat and don't want to replay the SP campaign to be able to fight some more enemies.


  • 5) Q: How much does the game cost?

A: $20


  • 6) Q: Where will I be able to buy Zeno Clash?

A: Via Steam smile.gif & Direct 2 Drive.


  • 7) Q: No retail version?

A: At the moment we only have a retail publishing agreement with Noviy Disk (Russian company) for the distribution of Zeno Clash in the following countries:
Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, Latvia Lithuania, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan.


  • 8) Q: Won't you have a retail version in other countries?

A: Maybe... we will announce any news here.


  • 9) Q: What about Zeno Clash for the consoles?

A: We have nothing concrete about any console version of the game, but it might happen. wink.gif


  • 10) Q: What about Zeno Clash 2? Will it be another 'episode' or a new game?

A: Zeno Clash is not an episode. It does leave a few questions un-answered, but the main story and conflict of the game is resolved. We have not decided yet what we will do after Zeno Clash is released. We have interest in developing a sequel (and if possible a bigger game).


  • 11) Q: Is there a demo?

A: You can get the demo here


  • 12) Q: What languages does Zeno Clash support?

A: All audio is in english and we will support subtitles in english and spanish. We are working on adding more languages such as german french and russian, but this may be after launch.


  • 13) Q: Will this game have a censored version in certain countries? Does the game have a rating?

A: We are releasing a single worldwide build. The game does not have excessive gore as it is inadequate for both the story and style. Remember that Ghat (the protagonist) is in a conflict with Father-Mother and that he fights against his family. It would be out of character for him to mutilate his brothers and sisters. The game has violence in the form of up-close and in-your-face combat, but the violence isn't unnecessarily overdone.
The game has no rating but our perception is that it would probably be on the high end of 'Teen' games due to the fact that everything is in a world of fantasy and nothing like real looking guns are in the game. We cannot confirm that it wouldn't get a higher rating though...


  • 14) Q: What are the system requirements?

Minimum

o Processor: Intel« Pentium« 4 3.0 GHz

How big is the game exactly? Download size? Unpacked size? Is it true that it's less when you've got other Source games installed (due to parts of the engine already being available)?

It's about 3.2 Gb... We don't reuse any of HL engine, so no reduction when other games are installed.

Is that the download size or the size when unpacked? Or isn't there any difference? Thanks for the response.

I think the developers have stated many times that all updates to the game, including new content, will be free.
