    The compoversion is released!

    You can find it here:
    PND_041:
    http://repo.openpandora.org/?page=detail&app=earthinvasion

    http://mcobit.openpandora.org/earth_invasion_x86_linux_041.tar.bz2 (extract and run ea.sh)

    x86_Windows_041:

    http://mcobit.openpandora.org/EarthInvasion_x86_Windows_041.zip (extract and run ea.bat)


    Here are some missing features, that didn't make it into the compo version becausee of too little time:
    - Storymode
    - Bossfights
    - More animations
    - More sound effects
    - More backgroundmusic tracks
    - More levelscreens
    - More invadertypes
    - More guns
    - More powerups and different shieldtypes
    - Different types of enemy shots
    - Enemies have different amount of healtpoints
    - Tutorial levels

    If you have further suggestions, let us know :)



    Original first post:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    While everybody else is still arguing about opensource or not, Zip and I are starting to work on an entry for the competition.

    As Zip has no problems with releasing his code as OpenSource and I don't mind to release the artwork as royalty free, we want to be a bit more open about the progress than linuxswat ;)

    For today, here is a little mockup for the titlescreen.
    I know, some people see it as bad practice to start gamedevelopement with a titlescreen, but there already is more under the hood :)

    Feel free to follow this thread as we go along and comment if you already think you know what this game will be about.

    Let's see if you can figure it out.

    If this would be a title screen competition you might win it.


    Unfortunately it's needs some more software.


    :lol:

    Looking Good! From the title screen i expect a fun arcade type experience, but perhaps it's something else all together. If the graphics are of a similar standard it will be a slick looking game.

    Thanks for your comments :)


    More info will be coming the next days. Maybe some snippet every day.


    And of course, crow_riot is right. But it won't be a simple clone. ;)


    Edit: spelled crow_riots name right.

    I'd live some combination as 2H4U does with tetris and breakout.


    And of course items and an experience system which allows you to buy upgrades for the score you earned after each level.
