Qua sum ego?

Game Title: Shadow of the Alien
Genre: Adventure-sly Horrific Puzzling Short Story
Developed by: Josh Mooney
Music and Sounds by: DJ Collateral
FPSC Version 118B3
Models and Animations Created in: Truespace 7
Textures and Images Created in: Paintshop Pro

Creators Note: This is the beginning of level 1 of my splatterspawn entry. Spent a few weeks developing the story and planning out the levels. After spending a week trying to get custom level objects to work and hundreds of bugs later, I'm finally making progress. This level is a single room where there is one puzzle, open the door. I still want to add a lot to this room. I planned plants, roots, more sun crystals, sun rays, skeletal remains, old journal and equipment from a previous trapped person and other nifty objects. More to come.

The first post isn't in the exactly right format. I see you are an experienced user, so I'll save myself from the work of posting the rules quoted in here, becouse you can see them in the stickies.

The screenshots look awesome, and all the custom stuff looks outstanding!

...er, it does adhere to the rules with slight self interpretation. I'm not much of a conformist.

Ok. Just sayin', but you know... I'm not a mod or anything. I'm just another mortal.

It's a guideline more than anything Metal Devil. To be honest, screens and a description are all you need...

I'm sure the mods'll forgive it when they see the awesome work on the screens.

Thanks. If it exists, does anyone know the command to increase an object's ambient light? Can't seem to find one..I'm hoping there is one.

Very nice atmosphere.

BTW - is there any reason you are writing in Latin
I'm guessing it has something to do with the storyline,but since it's for a comp. entry I won't find out soon.

I'm actually using 3 different languages in the game. Don't worry, once you've discovered Vultus Superum you will gain an 'understanding'.

Nice work; glad to see a TrueSpace user posting a WIP here.

Only thing you are missing from the req's is the dev name in the initial post (it may seem redundant; but there have been multiple devs on the same project before).

KeithC: Out of the many modeling programs I've used, TS seems to be the only one that doesn't have issues exporting to FPSC and DBP.

Alright, updated the first post to please the masses.

Cella subluceo tepidus...



...ego postulo subterlabor!


Creators Note: Finally got the room finished with working puzzle and door. Unfortunately can't showoff the most awesome room puzzle without giving away secrets. Now to finish the room beyond the door. Laid out, just need to add the final level "boss" Vultus Superum MUHAHAHAHA! ...and yes I double posted, so 'bleeeh!' to everyone who points it out.

This really looks good...

I am also in the splatter spawn comp.. I'm really going to have to lift my game to come up with anything nearly as good as this. Great work

Thanks,
Help bugs!

Thanks for the comments.

Looks like I'll only be able to pull off 3 levels altogether, which isn't such a big deal, the two levels I dropped did not contain any major plot points.

Though since It'll only have 3 levels, I plan to make the most out of each of them.

The first level is finished, with 'boss' room and placeholder. Right now I'm building the 'boss' mesh and will hopefully get it imported by tomorrow(hopefully working).

Here's a development screenshot:


Will post a picture of the boss room once I've gotten Mr. Vultus Superum in. Just to give you something to think about; the 'boss' head is the size of a small house.

I had a friend test the first level out and it took him 20 mins to figure out the puzzle. Not too shabby in my book. Next level puzzle is planned to be twice as long, and the third level 3 times as long, or tough, however you view it.

This game looks great and I have to say that I'm interested.
The only thing on my mind though is if this game has english to
describe the important story elements or is it a different language?

Actually, what happens is when you meetup with the first boss you begin to understand Latin and eventual everything is in English. The first puzzle is in Latin, but it can be solved without knowing Latin, but if you are familiar with some words the first level would probably take you 5mins to complete.

Right now I'm trying to get this sucker down before deadline...I'm such a perfectionist that I can never finish anything on time.


...seriously, my sig was deleted because of 8 pixels? Oh well, no hard feelings to the mod who did it.

Intersting concept and creative style.


This is really something I will keep an eye on.
