Zeno Clash is an action/fighting game set in a punk fantasy world. The game blends the first person genre with the fighting game genre and the combat is generally up close and brutal. The original visuals, which make full use of the Source engine features, are a refreshing deviation from traditional fantasy games.


  • Engaging melee combat in first person:
    The combat in Zeno Clash is up, close & personal. The new melee combat system allows players to perform a variety of movements like deflect & elude combos, knockback finisher punches and punishing grab attacks. The depth of the combat system will put player's skills to the test. Learn new attacks as the game progresses and confronts you with more formidable foes.
  • Fantastic visuals powered by the source engine:
    Players will be immersed in a fantastic world, beautiful and disturbing at the same time. The unprecedented art style brings a fresh new approach to the first person genre. The surreal environments and characters will keep player's wanting to discover more.
  • Survival mode challenges:
    Jump right into the action in engaging unlockable "tower challenges". The player must overcome enemy waves to progress through the tower levels. The game will rate the player in different categories like speed and performance. A leaderboards system will rank you against your friends, so the challenge never ends.
  • Deep storyline:
    Zeno Clash is a story driven game. Player's will play the role of Ghat; the son of a impressive hermaphrodite creature called Father-Mother, whose children form the most powerful clan in the city of Halstedom. Ghat must escape from his family and start an incredible journey with his female companion Deadra, who will aid him in the dangerous lands of Zenozoik.
  • Bizarre weapons:
    An unusual arsenal of weapons is available for those who can manage to keep the enemy at a range. The eccentric weapons are built from scraps and junk, but they are most effective when used properly. Hammers and clubs will be the most effective when fighting heavy characters that can only be brought down with extreme force.
  • Beautiful soundtrack:
    The beautiful musical score is as varied as the game's settings. The original soundtrack will keep players immersed in the different environments and key parts of the story.

Zeno Clash 10th Anniversary

Today marks a very special date that is dear to us here at ACE Team; 10 years ago on April 21st we released our debut title to the industry. Zeno Clash launched on Steam and with it we were honored to receive the support from our awesome community and the recognition of the industry that saw something unique in our first offering.

We wanted to celebrate this anniversary, so we've produced a commemorative Zeno Clash 10th Anniversary theme, developed by Patricio Meneses, accompanied by an awesome illustration developed by our collaborator; Rodrigo Gonzalez Toledo. You can access the files here or through the following links. We hope you enjoy the materials!
