A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

This is experimental work - the first fully playable first-person 3D shooter, written in an Excel workbook. You can go through the levels of the secret base captured by aliens, kill various types of zombies / creatures, and encounter various features. Sometimes you need to use your logic to move on. The whole story will be constructed from random messages during the game. You can save your progress at any time (3 slots are available) and restart it later. The game features authentic engine (100% VBA macros), levels, art, models, sounds and music, distinctive "retro-pixel" appearance and feeling.

Short trailer to this game:

Install instructions

You have the MS Excel to be installed on your PC. Just download the XLS-file (or, if you have Excel 2010+ version - you may also use binary .XLSB or macro-enable .XLSM versions of file, which are twice less in size) and open it in Excel (or just double-click on it) to start the game. You need no video accelerator to play game.

System requirements:

-MS Windows XP or higher

-MS Office 2003 or higher (2010 is the best in term of FPS) 

-CPU of 2.5GHz or higher (Intel i3 or better recommended)

Note: when you run the file, you will most likely notice that the sounds in the game are accompanied by the Windows system sound. To avoid this, after starting the game, click on the game icon in the quick access panel until the word “Compatibility mode” at the top of the Excel window changes color – unfortunately, this feature of Windows and Excel interaction could not be avoided
