in this dev log we will show the progress of our game Alien Ark. "We" are Nuke The Moon and Friends.
In our fist meeting we discussed the main mechanics of Alien Ark. It will be a roguelike planet exploration game where you land your space ship on procedural generated planets. On the planets you can find several artifacts. Combine those artifacts to create new alien crew members that will improve the attributes of your ship. Improve your personal landing skills to save precious fuel for your ship.
The game contains three screens:
The Solar System
Navigate your ship trough the solar system to enter the orbit of the planets.
The Planet Surface
Land your ship on the surface to collect artifacts and items. Choose a good landing place to avoid damages to your ship.
Combine 3 collected artifacts to create new alien crew members. The crew members can improve the attributes of your ship like fuel consumption, required landing space etc.
Stay tuned to get more news about the progress of the game :)
