A distress call wakes you and your crew mate from C-Sleep. A suspected rad leak at the nearby Outpost space station needs investigating. Don't worry, it should just be a quick jump in, jump out job...

Enjoy.

V1.1
- Level 3 made easier. Also forcefield is triggered during vulnerable sections of the level.
- El presidente medal fixed.
- Challenges fixed, no more broken numbers.
- Various tweaks and fixes.

V1.2
- Bug with weapons unavailable in Swarm mode fixed.
- Turrets accuracy fixed.
- Console intro can be skipped by clicking.
- Level 3 tweaked so its less likely to break ( Yet again )
- Shout out to the NG boys who helped with bugs in the credits.
- Various tweaks and fixes.

V1.3
- Challenges should be less buggy.
- Reduced the chance of being stuck in a spawn hole.
- Invisible objects fixed.
- I'm sure someone said faster running would be nice ? Done.

V1.4
- A bit of retconning ready for Outpost 2, plus a little teaser.
- Minor tweaks and fixes
- Full screen mode if you've got Flash 11.3 or greater installed.

Just a note on the quality settings, its already running in low quality, hence the lack of in-game option for it.

GODDAMNIT I WAS JUST THINKING OF DOING THIS

I wanted to make a topdown shooter very similar to this but DAMN SON that is some nice polish here. The graphics are very well done. However, that is really the only thing going for it.

You see, you used sounds from half life series. I recognize the walking sounds. And overall the sound quality isn't that great. So I can't give you points there. But most importantly, it's really boring. Everything is paced so slowly. The character's slow walking, the fights, everything. Move things along! The story is hardly sophisticated (OWL men? Seriously?) It got real repetitive by level 2, and oddly you seemed to be going for a call of duty style achievements and interface. There is not enough enemy types. There is not enough variety. Ah so you used physics to make boxes and stuff move around as you push them. Yes, but that causes anti-aliasing problems when they rotate. Jagged edges. Which kinda detracts from the neat graphics on display here. I know you thought it is a neat idea because I thought the same thing. Anyway, I'm going to surpass you on every level when I release my topdown shooter :)

I look forward to playing it mate, 'cause I really like my game, so I can tell I'm going to love yours.

This either ends 2011 with a BANG...

Or starts 2012 with one...

To me, this has a Quake 2 crossed with Alien sort of feeling to it (Since I have actually played Quake 2 and have seen Alien Ressurection (AKA Aliens II).)

I can tell you. RIGHT now, dear readers, if you are easily scared of nasty monsters coming out of nowhere and attacking you screeching at the top of their lungs, DON'T play this game! Consider this a health warning. Now dont you guys ignore this and crap / wet yourself, otherwise i'll say I told you so.

Now onto the breakdown of the game. I like the fact you threw in the night vision level, that REALLY sends the scare AND difficulty factor up. I also like the fact you can buy and upgrade weapons, thats a really neat plus for this game laser sight comes in extreme handy as well. Miscellaneous: 10/10

The gameplay is smooth, and you can go at your own pace too. I prefer clearing out the whole level before I even think about leaving it. I don't like it when enemies from another level come to haunt me. D:< (I have yet to see if that happens in this game.) Gameplay: 5/5

I also like the balancing, the first level was pretty easy, I finally lost a little bit of health a quarter of the way through the second level in that really cramped hallway and room with the flickering light in it. The night vision level, which I stopped on my first playthrough of this game, gave me the shivers. Way to use the natural human fear of the dark. Balancing & Difficulty: 5/5

The graphics are great, so are the SFX. The fact the EBE's make a noise when they see you is actually a good early warning for an incoming enemy, i found that useful to immediately eliminate threats. Graphics & SFX: 5/5

The fact you used both a money AND an XP system at once is a great idea that I think is perfect, if not a MUST for games like this, FPS's such as Raze 2, and RPG games like Sonny, stick with it man! Bonus: +2/+0

My only reccomendations if you decide to make a sequel are an expanded array of weapons (I.E a grenade launcher, a weapon which the shots of bounce off walls a certain number of times, etc.), upgrades for sight and radar ( The radar which btw was VERY useful), and upgrades for armor and maximum health. Other than that this game easily excels in every category. Hope to see an outpost 2 from you soon. Until then I will keep hacking, or should I say, "Shooting" away at this game.

10/10 from me, though I wish it was possible to give a 12/10.

Great game! (Glitch)

This is a great game. Would be even more awesome if it was a 3D console game. Lol!

By the way, I found a glitch.... I think.... might just be the PC. I was watching the movie "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and switched it to full screen mode. When I closed down the full screen it was still up but only in the game. It covered about 80% of the screen. So I couldn't figure out how to close the terminal which might have fixed it. The buttons where still clickable but again I couldn't find them because the screen was covered. I can send you a picture of the bug if you want.

Other than that the game if great so far.


Squize responds:

Argh, that's annoying. Thanks for flagging it up, it's added to my growing list :)
( It amazes me, we've had so many play test the game, and obviously I've had one or two plays myself, and not one of the bugs mentioned here have ever happened for anyone testing it ).

boring

the graphics were outstanding however the game got very boring.
firstly, these slow asses move like they have down syndrome but they can still push tables at walking speed with ease.
secondly, ive been playing for like 5 minutes and got stuck without even killing one enemy.
thirdly, the story is something that wasnt even discussed about by your team. it is cliche and i can go watch any sci fi movie to figure out what you were thinking.

overall i see that proud effort went into this bag. kinda reminds me of metal gear solid

Nice, but...

I am pretty stuck on 5/7-the Mainframe level. I hacked all 4 consoles, but I am having trouble escaping. I give it a 8/10 and 5/5.

The character that you play needs to move a LOT faster. With some of his guns, like the 3rd-I think the SMG-it takes him at least 2 seconds to reload. I think that is a bit too much time.

At least I made the High-Score list, for now. All the way at the freaking bottom, but I didn't finish yet so eh.
