"Secretum Labyrinth Kings Gold" is a freeware/demoware game I made for the 8-bit a few years ago so people get a taste of what I am developing.

"Secretum Labyrinth The Legend" is a 64K ROM cartridge that uses the 64K of RAM on the 8-bit, that is has a much larger dungeon to explore, and many more things to do.

When it came time to port some games to the 5200, I decided, why not also attempt to port the Secretum Labyrinth engine over also. I started with porting using the database from "Kings Gold" so I have some test data to compare it to. But later in the process I decided to come up make something new I can add to this series of games. I had all this stuff I was experimenting with for optimization, improving the graphics, game play, and fitting more into a smaller space. So I applied that to this 5200 cartridge.

I have been looking to add other RPG (Role Playing Game) and Adventure like elements into this. So this will have some things we had not yet seen in the prior Secretum Labyrinth games.

 plus we wanted to give the game its own unique name for the 5200 version. we toyed around with a few other words, and just the letter "X". i think we have a good name. peter is doing a good job as usual programming the game.

I really want to do something special with the Secretum Labyrinth series on the 5200 with this Xenogenesis game. I know Adventure II has been done, but no one else has stepped up and offered anything within that category. I am adding a few more similar RPG elements like Stamina where your character starts getting fatigue and slows down when swinging the sword too long. Something the improves with advancement of skill level and adds some challenge to the games. Thinking about trading item for item to get past a certain point in the game. Like getting a key to open a certain door. But some feed back on what people like to see inside a game would help.

here is a updated video showing the work we are doing on the game, its getting closer to the stage where we start to beta testing.

This is an update concerning progress on the production of "Secretum Labyrinth Xenogenesis," a new title up and coming for the Atari 5200. It is a sequel to "Secretum Labyrinth: The Legend" for the Atari 8-bit.
