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/

      Hey guys! First post here

      So like the post title reads, I'm looking for some feedback on a few electronic tracks as well as some advice on where to begin with networking (specifically, contacting indie devs about getting some music placed without coming off as a lame solicitor).

      I've seen a few "work" sections on this site and other similar ones, but none of them really seem to have anything remotely helpful in terms of music - or maybe I just suck at using the search tool? I've also taken to twitter and acquired a fair amount of followers, but I'm not getting the results I want, mainly being conversations with people who are working on games (even minimal budget indie games) about scoring. Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated!

      And lastly, here are three tracks I'd really appreciate some feedback on! Mostly about mix and composition. I know the master levels are a little low, and I prefer to keep it that way and retain full dynamic range. Thank goodness the loudness wars are over haha. 

      Tension track: https://soundcloud.com/spacepengu/farewell-sleep 
      Guitar & synth track: https://soundcloud.com/spacepengu/guitar-synth
      Chill / relaxing electronic track: https://soundcloud.com/spacepengu/chill-space-92816-439-am

      Thanks so much guys, looking forward to reading your replies!

      Hi guys
      My name is Felix, I'm from Spain, Europe.

      In Spain the development of video games is very stopped and that's why I decided to register in this forum on the recommendation of Anya kickstarter. She told me that there is good vibes here and that you help a lot.

      I am writing to give me your opinion (sincere) about the game I am developing.

      I have the entire dossier here as she recommended me.

      It's not spam, I just want you to give me your opinion as developers

      Thank you very much <3

      P.S. Excuse my English

      Hey! Could you critique if the instruments on this track (all midi) sound realistic or not?
      Which things can get better?
       
      Thanks!

      Hey, guys!
      This is our first game published in Google Play. We are dying to hear your feedback and share great experience!

       


      Introduction
      Tic Tac Toe is basic and all-known game. And to compete with other games we had to create something unsual, special. We analiesed market and came to conclusion that a lot of Tic Tac Toe games are overcomplicated without any reason - "too many clicks to play". That's why we decided to create on the one hand simple and on the other one contentful game. The idea was "Open game and start playing" -- no menus, no complex settings. All intuitive and comfortable!


      Features:
      Show him who is the Boss, beat the computer! (Player vs computer) Invite and challenge your friends in 2 player mode! (Player vs player) Play on different maps: 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5! Difficulties levels! Score meter to measure your strength! Everything fits in one screen! Great and beautiful sound effects! Innovative design solutions!  

      We decided to make this game totally FREE, so that everyone could play it!
      Here is some screenshots from the game:


        


        


      Conclusion
      All in all, it is only the begining! We will work hard and improve game! Your feedback and impressions are very important for us!
