New Game: Alien Town

This is a new game that I have been working on for the past week. Its a turn based game where you explore the town and defeat the various enemies you come up against. There is also loot available for you to pick up and gain bonuses from.

For the game you control just one character and you move them about the world. After you have completed your moves you press E or the end turn button to end the turn. You will now be able to complete actions again. When you enter a building there might be a person inside. All people are hostile in this world and entering a building will initiate a fight sequence. A fight sequence consists of a random number between 1 and 6 being chosen for both the player and the enemy. Each attack is added to the random number and the higher deals damage. If the enemy is still alive the player will be moved back out of the building and onto the street.

You don’t have to kill anyone but they may be protecting some good loot. Loot consists of four types. Helmets, Boot Implants, Wrist Implants, Weapons. The implants are part of the lore of the world. They add various bonuses to your character such as increased damage, attack, health or more moves per turn. Items are found randomly in different buildings.  Pressing I at any time opens your inventory which shows your stats and the items you have equipped at that moment.

The map will be expanded with varying types of buildings and scenery. One feature that hasnt been implemented yet is the “Federation Patrol”. After a number of turns the Galacian Federation (a faction in the world) will do a patrol of the town and anyone caught outside is attacked. So as the player you must try get inside a building when this turn comes around otherwise you will be attacked by a whole squadron of enemies.

I have a number of other features I’d like to add for the future. These include:

– Character selection at the start

– Leveling up

– Scrolling map to allow larger play area
