  1. XCI: eXtremely Compact Interpreter

    XCI is a graphical adventure game engine for the Commander X16. It is inspired by past engines such as SCI and SCUMM, but designed to maximize the potential of the X16 and keep the games just small enough to run, and allow developers to create games without having to program in BASIC or Assembly.
    Learn more about XCI on the official GitHub page: https://github.com/SlithyMatt/x16-xci
    There you will find all the source code, documentation, and example code and templates.
    There is also a tutorial series currently in production on YouTube: 
     
     
    In the downloadable ZIP file you will find the engine executable binary for the X16 (XCI.PRG) and two embedded archives of the Windows and Linux software development kits (xci.exe). The SDK is written in standard C and can be compiled to pretty much any modern platform, including Mac and Raspberry Pi.
    Stay up to date by watching the GitHub, and occasional builds will also be uploaded here.

  2. ZoomText

    This is a demo of the X16's capability to use PETSCII graphic characters to build super-sized characters that are 4x the size of regular characters.
    Simply load and run ZOOMTEXT.PRG and type away.
    When you get bored, simply type "quit" (no shift!) to get back to BASIC. You can try with either the default PETSCII character set, or the mixed-case PETSCII set (by hitting Ctrl-N before running).

  5. XCI Example Game

    This is the example game for the exTremely Compact Interpreter, or XCI, an adventure game engine for the Commander X16 inspired by earlier game engines like SCI and SCUMM. This game is only intended to show a potential developer how to create their own game, so it is extremely short and simple.

    To play, load XCI.PRG and run. Then, when the menu appears, select "New Game".
    Note that this is based on an intermediate build after release 0.4b, from commit 33b29de, which will eventually be release 0.5b.

  8. PETSCII Emojis

    A short BASIC program that adds three emojis to the current PETSCII character set. Rather than the normal graphic characters expected, Shift-P, Q, and R will give you smiling, frowning, and amazed emojis, respectively. This program can be easily expanded upon to add additional modified characters.

  9. Chase Vault

    Chase Vault: a game for the Commander X16 by Matt Heffernan
    You are a pith-helmeted adventurer trying to collect artifacts from an ancient Caribbean crypt, haunted by the ghosts that want to keep their secrets. Collect all the artifacts in each room and try to make it to the end. There are many locked doors, so make sure to pick up any keys you find! If you collect each kind of native fruit, you will have more lives, so be on the lookout for them in each room. Also, the ghosts are vulnerable for a short amount of time after you collect each voodoo talisman, so you can chase them for a change.
    To play, load CHASVALT.PRG and run. You can use joystick 1 or the keyboard (cursor keys to move) if no joystick/controller is connected.
    Keep up to date with future releases on GitHub: https://github.com/SlithyMatt/x16-chasevault
    Enjoy and good luck!
