Nice! I love Alien 1,2,3,4 (but not so last two parts which were quite illogical). The game looks pretty solid platformer with nice art. It also reminds me Abuse from 1995 a bit.

Thanks guys! Gentleman We have been working so hard to get everything right and we are super excited to show you everything we have so far!

There are still two devices we need to finish - sound generators and mines. Then you will see everything in bloody-stealth action!

Just checked the thread after a while. The gameplay looks really fun Smiley
Reminds me of mark of the ninja with it's stealth mechanics, which is a good thing Smiley

Thanks! We have been inspired by many great games and Mark of the ninja, as one of the best 2D stealth games, is definitely one of them!

With our new waypoint system we have recreated a memorable scene from a great movie! Will you guess which one? Wink

I have to admit that I was unsure and did not remember the scene itself. But your video has the solution in the title, so I can't take the whole credit of figuring it out. I have not watched it in a long time, but Aliens is an amazing movie and maybe one of the best movie sequels of all time. Great work on the animations of your game as always, I just love your protagonist and its walk cycle.

I hope I don't come across like a Mister know-it-all, but I'd change the title of your video a bit and accredit the movie to Cameron, although Ridley Scott is the creator of the franchise ;)

While I don't feel particularly compelled to play something evil with evil intentions myself, I do understand the appeal and fun it can be for others. More importantly, this looks like a well-crafted game and a good in-depth devlog, which is always fun to follow, so subbed!

When I see the turrets I am thinking of Aliens(2) but the went combo with the crowd makes me think you tried to recreate the mess hall meetup from Alien 3


EDIT: ah nwm I am now 100% sure it's from Aliens(2) because of the dialogue. I was not sure because the other characters were unarmed and in this particular scene all marines were top notch. Still good job

Thanks! The title betrayed us! :D I would say that Aliens2 may be the best cosmic horror movie of all time and perhaps the best Lovecraftian horror.
Yes, you are right, we should have put Cameron into the title. We always say Ridley Scott`s Aliens but in fact, the series had multiple directors and Cameron did a really good job.

You are right, it's Aliens! And you are also right that in the movie nearly everyone in the room was an armed marine (a bit scared though Cheesy). But just to make it fair for our little monster, we had to swap almost all marines for regular civilians so they would not shoot him as soon as he would exit the shaft. In the movie, there were multiple aliens in the ventilation after all Smiley

HA ! what did I won?  Durr...?

I really enjoy these Alien easter eggs because I am a big fan too so I totally respect what you try to create here.

I also try to recreate some scenes from the Aliens movie myself in my own game, if you want you may check page 6 of my dev blog for a map inspired by the reactor room encounter although my game plays from the perspective of the marine squad.

Maybe we can have a versus mode cross-ref for my squad to fight your creature at some point he he he

A prize? Yes, there should be a prize! Hold on... it should be somewhere here... hmm...
**looks in an old box then pushes it away and looks in an even older one**
Ah here it is! Cheesy

I have checked your game (especially page 6). It looks cool! And the Alien part is awesome. It really gives this alien feel.. how dark and creepy it is. I see that you also have a steam page. Congrats!

I would love to see your squad fight our cute bloodthirsty monster. I wonder who would win Evil

I wonder if there could be systems/perks that let you check which switches control which gates, like showing electric links in games such as Gunpoint.

We are planning to make it clear which switch is meant for which device by their placement. In the cases where it is not clear, we will use wall decals to lead the eye. So we are basically trying to go for something subtle.
