The Phavon project
What is Phavon ?
Phavon is a clone of the old times Amiga classic game "Xenon 2: The megablast",
originally produced by The Bitmap
The code for the Linux version has been rewritten completely from scratch and is
currently based on graphics and sounds borrowed from the "Xenon 2000: Project
PCF" one-level version of the game (available here).
It would be desirable, though, to create entirely new graphics and sound in
order to have a completely GPL'ed game. For more info, please have a look at the License section.
The author(s) of this project are not in any way related to The Bitmap Brothers,
even though they kindly agreed that we could reuse the graphics of their demo
for our project. Please note that the original games Xenon, Xenon 2 and Xenon 2K
are (C) The Bitmap Brothers.
The insane mind behind Phavon is Gianluca Insolvibile. Fierce criticisms should
be directed to him for any issues related to the game.
How do I contribute ?
Any help will be very welcome. There are a lot of tasks to be covered, both on
the development and on the artwork side. These are just some issues that need to
If you want to join the project, pick up a task and drop me a line.
- creation of our own graphics (levels, ships, enemies) and sound
- development of a level editor (or integration with some existing map editor)
- development of the level scripting system
Thanks to Bitmap Brothers for letting me borrow their graphics and even admit it
Also thanks to Lelino for providing a first alternative soundtrack.
