Thank you for the feedback  :D  I found out the hard way that making an open world by yourself is super time consuming so thats why the environment can seem very empty.  I appreciate the criticism so i can improve as a developer :)

This game is fantastic!

The only critique I have is the jump animation is super nauseating but besides that, great work!

WE MADE IT!

The game is complete and ready to download at https://dezboyle.itch.io/beyond-terra

Update! (Nearing Completion!!)

Once you disable the Citadel shield, players can go inside the Citadel.  You fight through lots of aliens until you get to the final boss, the Cornea.

Once you defeat the Cornea, you can escape the planet in the rocket.

Recently, I've been having people playtest the game to work out issues, make changes and improve game balance.  I plan on polishing the game for the next week or so and then releasing it.


I lost it at the AK-Senpai part


Brilliant.

Update!  

The project is really coming together :)

  • The map is mostly finished although I am going to add more locations in the future
  • The military base is complete and when you invade it and destroy all of the enemies and sentry guns, you can disable the shield that protects the citadel.  To beat the game, you must invade the citadel and steal a spacecraft to go back home.  (This isn't just another endless survival game with no end goal)
  • Added an alien with a pistol that shoots at you.
  • Added one new location
  • Added a few basic items
  • Improved some graphical stuff


I like the aesthetic!

Update!

I decided to make scrap metal a sort of currency and possibly a building material in the future.  You can find scrap metal in drops or you can break down certain items into scrap at a Trash Compactor.

  • Added lots of garbage items that can be broken down into scrap
  • Added the Trash Compactor.  The Trash Compactor breaks down garbage items into scrap.
  • Added special items.  Special items boost certain abilities or stats.  For example, the MediBot is a special item that regenerates your health slowly and the Advanced Thrusters increase your jetpack speed;
  • Fixed tons of bugs
  • You can right click to drop in the inventory (EDIT 6/1/2018 : Changed right click to use consumable items such as medkits / food / oxygen)

Update!

  • Added the Sentinel - The Sentinel spawns at the Citadel and roams the map and then comes back.  They spawn every 1-2 minutes and drop useful items when destroyed.  Don't get too close though!
  • Added turrets to the cargo ship
  • Added a new weapon - the Plasma Accelerator
  • Started designing a heavily guarded base which will likely contain powerful weapons in the future.
  • Added a new Location
  • Fixed a bunch of bugs


Fun Update!

  • Added the Cargo Ship.  They spawn every 8ish minutes and fly across the map.  You can destroy them and they drop their cargo which contains rare weapons and useful supplies.  I plan on adding defenses to the ship to make it a challenging yet rewarding opportunity for players.
  • Added Xhaad the trader.  Xhaad is an alien barterer that will sell you supplies in exchange for batteries.
  • Added a new location - Shipwreck
  • Various bug fixes
  • Wrote some music for the title screen and death screen


i used hamachi when testing the game with a friend so maybe your firewall is blocking the connection?

I have been drawing a rough sketch of what I want the final map to look like and I have some interesting locations planned!  :)

Description >_

You and your crew crash land on an alien planet.  Stranded on unknown territory with no guarantee of being rescued, you must scavenge for supplies so you can attempt to escape.

Beyond Terra incorporates survival gameplay elements while also giving players an end goal to work towards.  To escape the alien planet, you must find a way to infiltrate a tall tower called the citadel and steal a spacecraft to get back to base.

Features >_

  • Multiplayer Co-op
  • Randomly generated items and enemies
  • Random events such as meteor showers, robots roaming the landscape and cargo ships flying overhead
  • Lots of items and weapons

Thanks for the feedback! :)

Thank you!

Thank you so much!  I appreciate the feedback :D

It's completely different but it will have proper multiplayer. 

Thank you for the feedback!  unfortunately I wont be continuing working on this game because i have bigger stuff planned.  This was my first multiplayer game so the code is super messy and i just wanted to start something new with what I've learned from making scrap Defense.  Its crazy how many people actually liked this game though :D  thanks!

Im working on a new project and im planning on having a proper host/join system with matchmaking.  This project was my first multiplayer game so it's a bit rough around the edges.

You have your friend host the server and then you type in your friend's IP address in and click join.  Sorry it's a bit of a rough way of doing it but I don't have money to host dedicated servers.

To play solo, you just click host

Thank you!  Unfortunately, I don't plan on continuing this project because I have bigger things planned :)  I appreciate the feedback

      Get your friends together and build up your defenses against hordes of robots in this simple sandbox tower defense game!

 -Play Multiplayer or Solo

 -Destroy robots to get Scrap, which can be used to build structures to defend your base.

 -Place walls, watchtowers, houses and turrets to protect the Gem!

Sorry for the late reply but yes, this was a solo development.  It took me about a year and a half to complete and is my first "professional" game aka a game i'm proud of :)

Thank you!

Awesome!

Okay all that chaos is finally over and the final build is complete :)

Haha I just finished playing through the whole thing and everything is working as intended.  The update will be released in around 15 mins! :D

Thanks so much for sticking along for this mess XD I finally figured out the problem and it was really stupid but im playtesting it and making sure its all good - Il have a final version up as soon as I can :)

(I feel like such a dork since the game was working perfectly when I put it on GameJolt but I had to compress the game assets a bit so i could put it on Itch.io and my new version of unity messed a bunch of stuff up and ugh)

Okay I just updated it.  I'm so annoyed that that unity update screwed it over but oh well..  stuff happens.

Thank you so much for the feedback :D

I feel really stupid I just fixed that bug with the journals but apparently that problem came back and im really annoyed that after all this testing it decided to break again >:(

Im going to update it ASAP (I just fixed the issue with the journal.)  Was the journal on the island the only one that didn't work?
