    Hello world !

    I am actually working on a little shooting game with aliens and spaceships :)

    Here is the concept (pretty simple) :

    Alien forces decide to invade Earth, of course, humans prepare to defend their planet !
    You are an alien pilot, so your objective is to destroy various ennemies (or buildings).


    Game Features:


    -You can destroy almost everything (humans, cars, houses, buildings)
    -Missions can be choosen separately (no order to complete but if you dies, you have to restart : no checkpoints or saves allowed)
    -Your ship and your weapons will be different to fit in every mission (harder mission, bigger ship)
    -Various environments to explore (mountains, desert, town, cities, etc)
    -This game will be free


    Here is the first level (it's a demo) :





    WEBPLAYER

    (left click : shoot, hold right click : look around, r : reload canon, arrows : movements)

    Actually, all the game mechanics are ready (I work on the design)

    I will give more informations during the work in progress

    I would like to have some feedback for this, also, if you have any mission or map ideas, tell me ! :)

    First things first , it simply takes to long , way to long to load up in the web player. 5 minutes and still waiting , thought i would come back and post.

    Will post what i think of actual game , once i get in :p

    EDITED : after getting into game. Neat stuff , i like yer percussive effects , cool stuff. I see why it takes so long to load up, i would recommend setting up a menu , other things that allow a bit of loading in the background while the user is navigating. As is i almost didnt wait around to get in.

    Cool though :p

    About the loading, I am sorry for this, I will try to solve it later (maybe it's the map size, too huge :p)
    And for the menu, yeah I have planed this :) (here it's just to show the game level, nothing else ;))

    About the loading time, you should try the streaming option in the export menu.

    Nice game, I like the starting point from a battleship and the fact that we car play the bad Aliens destroying the earth. But you need to work on the ergonomic because the controls make the game really hard.
