A downloadable game for Windows

Tiny first-person Zelda-like with a resolution of just 64x64 pixels.

The third game in the Legend of Xenia series, it's a sort of reimagining of the first game but now in 3D!

A young girl wakes up on a beach, with no memories of how she got there. Explore the island, meet new friends, fight baddies, and learn the truth about who you are!

Made in 2 weeks for LOWREZJAM 2018 where 64x64 resolution was a requirement, stop complaining about the resolution 馃槄 — if you feel your eyes burning: try playing in a smaller window; try the new anti-aliasing option; or use the secret hi-res mode (H+I+Enter) :P

I had a lot of cool ideas that I wanted to do, but didn't have time for during the jam. I wanted to update the game post-jam but never did, probably never will.

Such a fun game, it's really cool! Well developed... H + I + Enter, right? You're a curious developer. ^-^

Nice gameplay, i just didn't know where to go, i mostly was exploring .

I made a video about it if someone is interested.


xbox 360 controller compatibility?

would u upload to steam?

how to save?


Magnificent! 鉂わ笍


This hurts my eyes in the best way

great game

is there any way so that i can increse the resolution?



thanks, would you by pure chance also know how to change the aspect ratio without playing it low rez?

no sorry


when the first gate opens(and i assume the other ones too), if you time it just right, jump onto the closing gate and then immediatly onto the shelf you can skip the other two gates. I dont know if this is a intentional developer backdoor or a actual bug, but it just lets you skip the whole game. Other than that, really fun game!

you can make a speedrun out of this

Can you make a linux version of this game?

excellent, just like the other xenia games!

Just played through you game for YT. I really enjoyed it, and this has great potential! I can see adding new spells, enemies, areas, and even a boss fight!

Is there PS4 Controller compatibility? If there isn't, it's totally fine, I can play keyboard and mouse

is it possible to get the potions seller to sell me his strongest potions, for I can totally handle them, unlike that dimwitted traveler outside?


also, is it just me or is the potions seller smoking crack?

Man I wish this would be finished :(

Why this game detect dualshock 4, but in game controller not worked? Thats stupid, please fix this

P.S. I am from Russia, because sorry for worst english


Everything except rumble works on Dualshock 4 when I try it (both wired or via Bluetooth), so I don't know what to tell you... 馃

Are you running some third-party drivers like DS4Windows or the Steam Big Picture controller setup? If so, maybe try disabling them?

Or maybe try plugging the controller in at different times, like while the game isn't running, or while the game is running, see if that makes a difference?

First, i used wired connection, but controller not worked. Second, i used bluetooth connection and ds4win,  activated Dinput only and no reaction, controller not worked

P.S. for connection i closed game first, and sorry for worst english 

i love this game a LOT, do you ever plan on finishing it? no pressure, but i was just wondering lol

Hopefully. I ended up feeling very burnt out after the jam, so progress stopped due to that. One day I'd like to get back to it (like all of my other unfinished games lol...)

Cool game, how do i save?

I loved this game, I also made a video for my youtube channel, Check it out if you want.


Cool game, what engine did you use?


The "More Information" section says "Game Maker: Studio".

Cool game with nice art style !

I love this--Mostly.

It's got the classic Zelda feel it seems like it was going for down pat. It's got a good use of resources in enemy designs, making the three slimes feel distinct in behavior and I do love that skull guy. The overall area map is well done and thought out. I'm into this. This is my Jam with a capital J. 

My only real critique going forward is to be very careful with that low-rez effect. I played through to the end with it on and was enjoying myself, but finding a creeping nausea as I continued onward. I'm not normally someone who suffers from simulation sickness--I usually have to dip into VR before I start having that, but it was there and it was undeniable.  I also experienced some issues with staying oriented, but I'm not entirely sure that wasn't to design. After reaching the end and learning how to turn it off, I was actually kind of shocked; this game is pretty. Your textures look great and I felt like a lot of the models actually felt like they had even more character without it. I respect the developer's creative decision to use the filter, but I hope going forward they'll consider tweaking it so it's less severe or even giving the user the ability to shut it off up front via a menu. 

Even with that though? Full marks, especially for a gam jam entry. I love it and hope to see more soon!


Honestly man I'd love to play this game for my youtube channel if the resolution was a bit bigger like 128 x128 or something, its a little hard on the eyes when your playing it, but this definetly has potential, keep up the good work!


There's a seeeecret hi-res mode

HI Enter 馃槈

How do u get 128x128

Holding H and I, and pressing Enter, sets the resolution to whatever the Window Size option is set to.

Just played through the full game, Thanks so much for the H I Enter code.

64x64 and 64 days ago?


how did you do 3d like this in gamemaker!?

it is like zelda

how? zelda isnt the only game with sword and magic

One of the small amount of games that manages to recreate the old-feeling gameplay with modern controls.

Just had a quick play. Love it! Can't wait to play more on my lunch break :D 

Nice game so far! Makes me want to do more Zelda-likes!

So, when can we expect the next update?


I don't know. I've been sick for a while, and have had a few other commitments, but it is slowly being worked on.


The software rendering REALLY lags my low spec laptop (Pentium b970)

Is there a way to make it use GPU instead?


yes get a gpu

this game cool!


This is actually an interesting concept. The graphics are kind of a puzzle all on their own

super cool game, i wish it had more gameplay. also a boss battle at the end would be perfect. you should add more swords and spells. maybe equip 1 spell at a time but two wepons at the same time. that would give you more attack speed. Armor should be a part of this game too. Chapters with differend bosses and mini-bosses, potions should be a think while keeing the game good and simple

This was really cool. I never played the original, but I loved how you made it 3D but kept it all pixels. Great work :D

Really cool game! One question, is the northern shrine in the prototype? I only managed to find the southern, eastern and western shrines.

It is not

i didnt fimd any shrines... just three chest with keys inside of them


I appear to have played the game or something I guess
