The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

 Post subject: Aliens APC and Aliens inspired stuff

Hey guys,

Thank you for having me, I am a big fan of Aliens and Xcom(some old game not many know about) and I try to create a perfect mix between them as in an inspired game.

I will post a few stuff that I already got made for this project, Mainly I try to create an RTS mixed with Horror, basically, a strategy game version inspired by Aliens.

Also I do not want to be marked as a hit & run spammer, so I will not post any links.

APC interior:

And some alien eggs inspiration

Gameplay

During this journey you choose what team you want to assemble, you choose the evolution of each squad member, you choose which location you want to look for supplies and where you want to establish a defense perimeter, you choose your route and you decide the best course of action for the events that will present before you.

Aditional information

- Real-time strategy game mixed with RPG elements.
- Code in C++ artwork in Windows Paint
- Top-down
- TBS gameplay during travel map
- survival elements
- skills, level up system, inventory, resources
- multiple choices and outcomes
- main inspirations: C&C, Dungeons & Dragons, Heroes 3, Red Alert, Xcom
- Game development started in mid-2016 (artwise, design, prototyping/ part-time) and heavy development started in half of 2017, currently we got a map editor working and some of the basic features done + 50% from art/animations done
- release date: we hope somewhere in 2018 but then again hope is a dangerous thing
- game is called "Chromosome evil"


I truly hope I will find someone who can enjoy this old-school type of creation.

Let me know what you think and I will answer as soon as I can

Thank you for the kind words!
We had an alpha test a couple of months ago on our Discord. Right now I do not know exactly when the next test session will be or if we skip beta and go straight for full release.
Also if you want you can add it to the wishlist(we do have steam coming soon page): https://store.steampowered.com/app/1035660/Chromosome_Evil/

@badkarma
Thank you so much! Your comment just boosted my motivation.
To be honest, I am afraid that people will not enjoy old-school pixel art.

I wanted to show some full-size screenshots but apparently, there is a size limit so I can post some more gifs

This flesh thing that it's grown on a wall got a telepathic attack that does no damage but stuns player marines(WIP mechanic)
Image



But I do not concentrate only on real-time tactical strategy aspect, I also want the game atmosphere to be thrilling and horror
Image

Also, I had a bit of fun getting my entire squad killed
Image
Image

And here is one of the interesting creature design:
This big brute got eggs on his back that spawn small worms and the small worms if not killed fast they grow into bigger and bigger worms.
Image


Hope you enjoy it!

Also if you have any suggestions or questions please let me know

Thank you for sharing that! We will try to also develop a Linux version


Meantime
UPDATE preview on one of the scenarios

The exit corridor is full of dead bodies from the first strike team, the bodies and dead tentacles are inspired from the hive from "Aliens" with a mix of "The thing" creature design. We also added some basic animation of bugs and flys on dead bodies + the animated fog.

Image

And here is the actual Lovecraftian Alien creature.

I only did basic breathing animation and a bit of rattlesnake on his tentacles. The eye rotation is code-based and always rotate towards the target

Monster got 3 states: idle(vulnerable), tentacle attack(most deadly), and birth(spans worms, the one I used in the screenshot).

Also, you can manually target the barrels to deal extra optional explosion damage, oh and also if you do not kill the worms fast they grow

Image


Some extra details: in this scenario, your squad is stranded on a farm(farm also inspired from Xcom) and the fog hides a big creature that hunts your team down so you must make a defensive perimeter and barricade in the house to either kill the creature or find an alternative exit.

Hey,

I do the artwork and design, My partner does the programming, he is using C++ and made engine from 0 he said at this point he wants to keep his code 100% his own, but thank you very much, that is nice of you.

Meantime I finish the new logo of the game

This month we will work exclusively on a vertical slice beta version.

Image


Our main goals are:

- have private tests for users who contributed to our Discord with LVL 4 and above.

- send a version to a very small amount of YouTubers

If you are interested you can join our Discord room here: https://discord.gg/J2E2YWK

I will post here the results later on

After 4 years of development, we are getting close to finishing this project
