Ten Nights Of Killing And Mayhem at FJB III

This turn-based strategy game began as a board game cooked up by a few bored high-school students, was turned into a DOS game, then rewritten to use a better DOS graphics mode.

Here are some online reviews of the original game:

Now it has been reworked again to use BOSS and SDL to work with modern Windows systems. Original game written by Jeff Sinasac for Little Devils Incorporated. Windows version ported and enhanced by Jeff Schiller.

This game is Freeware and is in pre-Alpha stage. Please report any bugs to Jeff Schiller at CodeDread.

Caverns of Xaskazien

This fun little retro, turn-based, tiled RPG was written by Jeff Sinasac for Little Devils Incorporated. The original platform was DOS and it relies heavily on Borland libraries (Borland Graphics Interface = BGI).

The original DOS-based version is Freeware and was put up on MobyGames, The UnderDogs and other similar sites, but no longer seems to be available for download. I have put together my own download of the DOS-based version that will probably work except for sound (I didn't include the required DOS sound drivers...). If you want to see the original DOS game, click the below button:

Caverns of Xaskazien was ported over to Windows in 2004 using the BOSS library (which uses SDL). The porting was done by Jeff Schiller and the code was handed back over to Jeff Sinasac to continue work on it in his spare time.

Jeff Sinasac has improved the original COX game since I handed the code back to him. His results are:

A full list of enhancements and bug fixes since the handover can be seen in the COX Manual from the new download here. NOTE: I am not maintaining this code anymore. Please contact Jeff Sinasac for any bugs/updates.

Last Updated on 2013-8-8. Version 5.00.
