Hey guys!

We are AbstrAKT Games (formerly known as AKTStudios) and this is our 48 hour version of Protein Pirates! We are currently developing a full featured version of this game with hopes to deploy on Steam! We are looking for a lot of feedback and tons of criticism.

For updates on the new version, check out our social media sites at www.facebook.com/abstrakt games and @abstraktgames!

INSTRUCTIONS:
Left click on red blood cells to capture cells.
Left click and hold on a captured cell to harvest protein. Once a cell's protein is depleted, you control it.
Right click to select controlled or main cells that you control.
These cells can harvest neighboring captured cells.
Left click on controlled cells to transfer protein towards your main cell.
Defend captured cells and your main cells from the antibodies!
Left on antibodies to destroy them.
As you progress these functions will become autonomous.

*note* To capture cells you must right click the cell closest to the one you want to capture. Pirates must be on a neighboring cell to capture it.

CONTROLS:
ESC / SPACE/ P - PAUSE
LEFT CLICK - CAPTURE / HARVEST
RIGHT CLICK - SELECT
(WHEN AVAILABLE)
UP ARROW / W - SCROLL UP
DOWN ARROW / S - SCROLL DOWN
MOVE MOUSE TO TOP OR BOTTOM TO SCROLL CAMERA

NOTES:
This game was developed in 48 hours for the 2012 IndieSpeedRun and it won the Grand Prize!

This game was written in C# with XNA and converted to HTML5 using the JSIL .NET to JavaScript compiler. Thanks Tom Fulp ;)

Hey, I really liked the game, my only problem is scrolling to get to the right place. Please include in the full version, in-game mouse scrolling support, or something to handle the difficulty from the off-screen blind spots.

We agreed on this point and we think we have a solution to the scrolling. Thank you for your comments, we appreciate the feedback!

This game was pretty damn cool. and pretty freaking hard as heck! Only reason I'm giving it 4 is because it kicked my ass so damn hard. Xd hahahahaha It's a good game, and it's got my approval. Only thing is that I think the little blue guys aren't receiving the clicks right on them and it feels off a bit for me.


AKTStudios responds:

Thank you for playing! We have made sure all the bounds on enemies are fixed on the full version, we are also adding a bunch of new enemies as well. Thank you for the feedback!

I really like the look of it, but the game itself is pretty annoying. The first and second stages are tedious, and the third stage is tiring to keep managing things that are off-screen. The constant antibody assault ranges from boring to impossible. The 'pirates' don't seem to do anything except create an extra step of inefficiency. Challenging, certainly, but not very fun. Good art, good music.

Thank you for your feedback. We are taking as much as we can into consideration with the full feature game. It is comments like yours that will help us get better. And the pirates actually have a use in the full version, we have already addressed that ;)

All I've been able to do is capture the first two. The 'automated" capture doesn't work.
Otherwise this game seems like it could make frontpage, if it actually worked.


AKTStudios responds:

It should work no problem, we have tested it on multiple browsers, you have to have your pirates on the neighboring cell in order to capture it. Right click on the cells to the right and left, then left click on the above cells.

There needs to be a self-defense system. IT's too hard to balance.


AKTStudios responds:

If you keep playing, perhaps there IS a defense system. It can be done, you just have to be quick. Remember as you play, things become automated...
