They say they're protecting us, but from what?

Who do they think they are, keeping us behind these walls?

I gotta get out!

If you want to support games like this, consider buying Zak DX, the standalone version! It's just a buck, and I've included a number of special features:

  • Screen Mode settings: Customize the way the game is rendered, even disabling the pixelation altogether if you want.
  • Cheats: Godmode, infini-jump, even guns!

In addition, you'll also get these Bonus files:

  • Music files! The FamiTracker project files for the finished soundtrack, plus a few from earlier in development!
  • Level files! The Tiled maps for every level in the game!
  • The original prototype for Zak, made in just a week!

I can't wait until the next ones come out!

is there going to be a continuatio of this game?

I hope so! The secret ending looked really promising! >u<

Yes, I intend to do more games in this series. I'll need to ask for a bit of patience, though. As small as Zak is, it took me over 3 months to finish. Thanks :)
