Epic Sax Game

Warning: Flash

This game was exported in Flash and, as you probably know, Flash has been discontinued. As such, I can only provide access to the source code and the .swf file at the moment.

If you happen to have an ancient computer that still runs Flash in the browser, or a copy of the Adobe Flash Standalone Player, you should be able to run the game.

At some point I may port the game to JavaScript or similar, and it’s possible that the ruffle Flash emulator will get to a point where this game will run again. Let’s see.


Epic Sax Game was written in ActionScript 3 using Adobe’s FlashBuilder 4.5 and the excellent Flixel library. It is based on the Eurovision song “Run Away” by SunStroke Project and Olia Tira and the immortal “Epic Sax Guy 10 Hours”. The music comes from the MIDI version of the song made by David Sexton. The font in Epic Sax Game is Commodore 64 Pixelized by Devin Cook.

You can read my writing about the game on my blog. Epic Sax Game was featured on Kill Screen, The Verge, IndieGames.com, Rock, Paper, ShotgunSuperlevel (in German!), and on Terry Cavanagh’s excellent Free Indie Games.
