Let's Go on an Adventure!

Magical Mary is a first person platforming game where you can experience a father and his daughter's attempts to eliminate two evil men that have tried to get rid of him in the past.

See the Xane Wiki for more details.

  • Run! Battle! Explore! In this game, you'll have to do it all! Save the world from monsters and find hidden areas to get rewards!
  • Find entrances to the mysterious six Special Stages, which are said to store the powerful Chaos Bridges, should you be quick about it!
  • Three (maybe 4?) worlds with four levels in each are planned, each with their own boss and events that could affect other levels!

Additionally, you can listen to the soundtrack on Audius.

 These screenshots are out of date and will be replaced EVENTUALLY. The game looks better now.

A hallway at sunrise, orange light spreading to the ceiling and floor, fading. An aerial shot of (OLD) Hell City, with the park, buildings, and beaches visible. The Electric Lounge is close to the viewer. A dark, circular room lit by a bright light above a oversized restaurant cup from Bob's Drinks.

An aerial shot from the upper, rock/hill area looking down at the destroyed area and beach. Hell City at night. Buildings with their lights on, a red light, and a blue object on a rooftop can be seen. A colorful floating area with many coins. Distorted rocks can be seen in the distance.


This game is in its early alpha development part, but you can play and try out the game now! If you're on Windows (pre-compiled builds are 32-bit), MacOS, or Ubuntu/a compatible Linux variant, click its logo below to download its compiled executable. Also, don't forget to download the game data below that. Once both are downloaded, extract both to the same directory then run the executable, "PlayGame.exe" on Windows and either "MagicalMary" or "gzdoom" on other OSes.

If you're on a variant of Linux that isn't based on Ubuntu or a derivative or just want to compile the source yourself, click the box below, find the source link, then clone/fork the repository or download it as a ZIP, then compile using the instructions found on ZDoom's wiki. Don't forget to move the game data to the compiled app's folder after it compiles!

Info about security warnings

Magical Mary 1: Redthorn's Family Ransom is not well-known and doesn't have a security certificate to sign officially-released executable files with. Also, anti-viruses are quick to declare unpopular apps as viruses without second thought, so this section will tell you the possible problems you may encounter when initially getting Magical Mary 1: Redthorn's Family Ransom to run.

  • If you're using Norton, it may detect this game as a virus named WS.Reputation1. If it does, tell it to restore the game's executable file, as that is not a real virus, which only exists due to low reputation in the Norton community. Again, this game is not popular, so it will not have a good reputation. Viruses would never be sneaked into this game, which you can verify by uploading the engine files to VirusTotal or a similar website, or viewing the source code, which is mostly identical to GZDoom's source, excluding changes to the sky and MAPINFO definitions.
  • On Windows, SmartScreen will warn you about the app/program not having a publisher when you first run it. If you're greeted with a dialog that tells you about an "unknown publisher", click "more info" then "Run anyway".
  • If MacOS's Gatekeeper prevents the game from running, temporarily disable it in System Preferences. You may need to use Terminal commands just to bypass it on the app file! You may also compile the app yourself using Xcode. It's probably best to just set up Bootcamp and run the Windows version in it, or boot a Linux distro, though.

Don't forget to download the game data below!
Google Cloud Storage has been activated, so it is now used for downloads again!
Game Data

This game requires game data to function. Please download the latest version of it then extract this to the game's folder. Remember, this is an alpha build, so it is not representive of the final product, which will be released years from now.


For now, until Magical Mary 1: Redthorn's Family Ransom gains any popularity or interest, it will remain completely free to download the latest good version game data. If a Patreon campaign is started, the build downloadable here will always be one upload behind it.



There's no current plans to set up a Patreon campaign for things Xane makes (random videos, AND this game), but if one is created, the free download here will always be at least one step behind the latest, which only patrons would be able to download first.


Magical Mary 1: Redthorn's Family Ransom accepts optional downloads developed by Xane which add or change things in-game! Click/tap the picture beside the mod you want to download.

If a mod doesn't work correctly, re-download the game data and the mods. Make sure the mod is in the same folder as the game data and application, too! It will automatically load any official mods placed in the game directory.

If you still have the Materials Mod (mod_materials.pk3), please delete it as the game will not notice it in more recent versions. Instead, that mod has been integrated into the game. If your system can't handle reflective surfaces or slows down trying to render them, bring down the console with ~ then type this command:

gl_materials 0

A stylized yellow railing with various diagonal line supports and other shapes under the top rail. It looks very detailed, with unnatural patterns. Half of the visible rail goes behind a transparent swinging door. On top of this is the word Hi-res.

Hi-res Textures

Increases the resolution of textures and weapon sprites. This isn't needed to play the game, but if you're playing at 4K or higher, you may want this mod to take advantage of those very high resolutions.


If you'd like to listen to Magical Mary 1: Redthorn's Family Ransom's soundtrack, it's on Audius and VK. Some songs can also be found on Soundcloud, but it's not recommended compared to Audius, so they are old versions.

Do you like this game and want to get updates or see how far it has come? Magical Mary 1: Redthorn's Family Ransom has pages on other websites to make that easy! (Please remember to only sign up for and use social networks if you are at least a teenager. If you're a kid, please at most only check out the music, or view the YouTube videos.

Magical Mary 1: Redthorn's Family Ransom has pages on three social networks: Facebook, Twitter, and VK! Like, follow, or join one, respectively, and you will see their updates in your feed. Mark as "see first" on Facebook to make it more likely that you'll see game updates first.

There's also a YouTube channel, which you can subscribe to (and ring the bell) to receive notifications about any videos of new content, music, and trailers! It isn't updated often, however. The channel's content is not marked as "made for kids", as the videos are not kid's shows and other applicible content. There isn't any inappropriate content in them, either.
