Third Ludum down, woo!

Hey guys!

I’m Dan, one of the artists working on our third Ludum entry “Alien Barnage”; we wanted to make a fast-paced base defense game, and used the “one room” theme as a great opportunity to play with a wildcard mechanic to spice it up a bit!

We framed it as the player defending his farm from alien invaders, and having a tractor beam from the UFO jumbling up the base defenses and obstacles that the player builds.

Randomly generating the obstacles strewn around for the aliens to get stuck in was also important for making a replayable experience, especially as the initial difficulty of the game was steep.

Allowing the player to build his own turrets to fight off the enemy, as well as a repair mechanic, was a big help in making the difficulty manageable

Our last Ludum entry involved hunting down a randomly expanding shapeshifter truck boss, which changed in response to the player’s actions, so we wanted to keep the same element of replayability in this game.

I hope you guys can spare the time to play the game, preferably via the download, which includes higher visual settings that didn’t make it in the web build: Alien Barnage
