Prison Planet game demo playthrough

Share Collapse

My final project in a Computer Game Design program, Prison Planet:

In the game, you play as an alien fugitive that can control the minds of other beings. After he releases control, the controlled alien dies. Your goal is to escape the planet, while being chased by the forces of (interstellar) law and the, usually, dangerous local flora and fauna...

The twist ending is that what you've been really controlling all along is not the cute blue alien you see, but the parasite attached to his head - whose tail ends in a blue glowing sphere... if you look closely you can make the shape of its head and tiny eyes (if you feel meta, then consider all computer game players are some sort of parasites who control the characters in the games... more often than not, causing their horrific deaths :)

The Art was done in Photoshop, animated in After Effects and brought together in the Construct2 game engine.

i say work on the platforms and backround more because they really look bad with the characters

Thanks for checking it out and for commenting :)
I totally agree that the backgrounds can use some extra work, but (obviously) this is not a final product and was done under severe time pressure... I actually finished working on it a couple of hours before the actual presentation :).

This looks like a very good demo so far. If you decide to pursue this further, I would suggest removing the twist from the description and maybe strongly hint at it.

Thank you for commenting and for the kind words! :)
If I ever make this game for real, I'll definately leave it out :D
