Outpost 9


You have been teleported to Outpost 9. You must gather resources and manipulate the environment to survive. Protect the research in the planet below while gaining enough strength and technology to defeat the invaders that seek to destroy it.

Outpost 9 is a sandbox-adventure game with lunar lander elements. The terrain is completely destructable. As the character, you can mine, build and create technology and vehicles. From the Ship you can get really destructive!

This is a 2 week old project and is very much a work in progress. I would like to add level generation and chunking to allow for much larger maps. Save and load features. Alien ground troops. Player weapons and much more :)

Game Graphics Tutorial/Learning Curve
I can see where you're going with this and I think it has potential, but I found this initial experience very confusing. One of the screenshots made it look like a top-down shooter but then the first part of the game is more like a platformer.
The movement and jumping need refinement. I was constantly getting snagged on corners.
Control scheme needs to be more obvious. I had no idea there were so many other buttons and options available until I saw the very small green text telling me to press F1.
Learning curve is brutal. I honestly didn't have the patience to figure out how to make a spaceship and on top of that the AI voice is saying I'm about to be under attack.
