Feedback Something Ate My Alien - 2D Mining Puzzle game

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm a programmer, and me and my partner Kat Langwagen (who does the art and design work) decided back in Nov 2016 that we wanted to create our own game. Together we are Rokabium Games.

We knew it was going to be hard work, since there were just 2 of us, but we thought we would give it a go.

We didn't want to do something too simple, but had to think of something that we could actually finish, and that's when we came up with "Something At My Alien".

We've come far enough along now that we are confident to show people our progress, and are looking for some feedback. We would also like to try to build a little bit of a following and community around our development efforts.

So firstly, a little video trailer to get you in the mood, but please remember this is just an early dev version and we still have plenty to do...

 

The game is a 2D mining and collection game with puzzle elements. You are the AI on board the spacecraft Antalasia, and you have been taken over by a pirate vessel in a remote system. The pirate is demanding resources for the release of your ship.

As the AI, you have a bunch of alien minions on board your ship, and you can control them to collect for you. There will be 4 different planets that you can transport them to, and explore and puzzle your way through the worlds to find the required items.

Along the way there will be many dangerous obstacles, puzzles and enemies to fight your way though.

This is another dev video with me talking a bit about the game...

 

We think we will have about another 6 months left, as we have the main mechanics in place, and now we need to add more 'stuff' (Enemies, attacks, puzzles etc) and polish.

We have a little dev blog I've just written over here: http://www.somethingatemyalien.com/first-dev-post/

      Hello, I'm Lollipop.
      I have hobby project it is in very beginning phases. I'm looking for people to come in see my ideas and add input, nicely and respectfully poke holes in everything and even contribute if they desire. It's all concept, ideas, some story line, concept features,  some characters. It is original creative fantasy with hopes of being open world, mmo-rpg.
       
      Thank you and be kind

      Hi!
      My third alpha is out and I would love some feedback.
      You play as one (or two in co-op) survivor that must travel the land and survive the infected hordes, looners and bandits. You stop in locations but are always pressed as the hordes will start pouring in. Collect resources (food, fuel, medical supplies and ammo) and weapons and head for the goal!
      Tips
      Hold Spacebar to see help and controls. Always quickly switch to a melee weapon if running out of ammo Loot everything if you have time to loot, including cartrunks Choose locations that have the loot you need (such as gas station for fuel) Try to avoid running out of fuel or having your car break down. Walking is dangerous! Download (50 MB, works with windows only, you DON'T need dropbox to download):
      Damnation road (beta 1b)
      Some additions are:
      1. Roadblocks. Both the raiders and the military will block your path and you need to clear them before continuing.
      2. You can now actually complete the campaign. At the end there is a final large fight!
      3. Saving. You can quit and continue later. On death however, the single-slot save file is reset! (perma-death)
      4. Lots of balancing! And more flamethrowers:)

      I just noticed that my forum name was showing as Talroth, which I hadn't been using here since one of the major site overhauls (Which ever update allowed us to change user names.) Honestly no idea how long that had been showing as such, but going in and manually setting it to Luckless in Account Settings appears to have taken hold. 
      I've only been skimming the forums rather infrequently, so really can't say one way or the other if others may have been affected. 
       
      Everything seems to be working fine currently, so hopefully no need for any action on it. Only posting this as a bit of a heads up in case it was a symptom of some larger glitch.
