As of date, the most ambitious of these fanmade sequels is Elona+, an Expansion Pack released on 2012, still ongoing, and the only one (partially) available in English; Elona Custom, a full English mod of Elona+, was released in 2016 and is still in active development. For other fanmade sequels and spin-offs, see Elona variants.
