Zero X is a Keen 4 mod by Zero X. Diamond. The project never made it far enough to receive an official name, but the development folder was given the odd name of "Glfurlto." A demo was released for Andrew Durdin's Keen 4 Mini Mod contest, in which it won third place. It is now considered abandoned.

Story

The Mod is about the adventures of Aillen O'Riordan as he struggles to rescue the beautiful Faelicia from the evil sorceror Atroxus.

Trivia

  • The Necromancers in "Border Village" will crash the game if you don't shoot them quickly, but they work correctly on Hard difficulty in "Slug Village". Also, Aillen has trouble jumping off left-hand slopes, and walking under low ceilings.
  • Early in development, Aillen O'Riordan hadn't yet been named and was simply known as "Wyzzerd."
  • Early drafts of the Necromancer sprite featured a full-head skull helmet and different leg positions. The reason behind the change in direction has been lost to time.
  • To the author's knowledge, this was the first Galaxy engine mod to successfully replace IMF music lumps.
  • The game's soundtrack is a medley of several old Irish folk tunes and was arranged by Xky Rauh.
