A downloadable game for Windows

As the eponymous hero, the player is tasked with fighting against the forces of a heavily-armed militia in a world beset by firearms, using only their trusty pike as their guide. I created this back in 2008 and then retooled it a couple of years later to address some long-standing bugs. This version also includes the Game Maker source code in the old .gmk format.

Install instructions

Extract the files from the ZIP archive, then double-click the executable. The .gmk file contains the Game Maker source code for the game, which you can ignore.

If you want to view the source code, you will need to use Game Maker 8 or another version that supports the .gmk file format.
