Star Specter
(Wip title)


Your mission is to infiltrate and dismantle the three major industries and to take out the leaders of each location for your "father".

Currently the three stages planned are Agriculture, Medicine, and the third has yet to be decided but probably something to do with construction



Here's a few very early mockups








Progress may be a bit slow but I'm hoping this will turn into something eventually! I'm still working on my other project Deep Greens too, I'm just taking a small break from that one for now

I 100% agree with the Atari as a similarity / inspiration. Particularly with the color palette. This is awesome!

Thanks! Someone made a Mega Man 2 Atari demake that's actually really well done. It looks much more like an Atari game but it still feels somewhere between Atari and NES which I found inspiring.

Made a bit of progress with the art in the agriculture stage, it's looking a bit more solid now.

Here's a few concepts for the construction stage including outdoor palette variations and some kind of compacting bulldozer idea.





Progress has slowed down quite a bit, I'm hoping to get back to working on Deep Greens pretty soon. I just want to add a bit more substance to this game, hoping to end on a high note somewhat, so that maybe that will make it easier to return to it at some point later on. Like if I can get a few decently full mockups for each level I'll be satisfied enough to move on for now. But if my progress and motivation for this game continues to be a bit lack luster then I'll probably move on very soon.

Oh wow, these look all really cool!

have you thought of adding a palette swap option, like in downwell for example, to this?

Thanks! And yeah I have considered something like that. I've been testing other palettes occasionally and I'm always trying to keep in mind ways I can include a variety without making too many similar variations. As for a palette swap option specifically I'm not sure how to technically do that other than creating an extra version of each stage with the changes so that might be a bit tricky to add for now.

Here's one of the color tests, a few bits from the three stages combined into one stage to see how they'd look in that color. This might work nice for some final stage after the first three but like I said I don't want the variations to be too similar to things you already see in the game, it's hard to resist using the alternate versions for at least something though. They're actually pretty useful for determining what potential changes I may want to make to the levels. The main goal though is to add more graphics to each of the stages so I won't be so tempted to recycle and re use what I already have.
