Updated: Feb. 12th 2015 Gameplay Trailer: Hey guys and gals. Just wanted to share a little info and screens on my upcoming game (still working on the title). This will be the 2nd game from Lost City GameZ (the first game has only been released on Android so far) and I have worked hard to make this game much better than my first. Alone in the Wasteland Story: - The year is 2114. The past mistakes of mankind have finally caught up. Global Warming is in full force. The air has turned toxic, temperatures have skyrocketed and crops have stopped growing. Mankind has been forced to move underground. These cities use bio fuel to power their climate control and air filtration system. - A distress call has been sent from one of the neighboring underground cities calling for more bio fuel. You have been chosen to go to the surface, search for fuel and deliver it before its too late. Gameplay: -This game is primarily a survival adventure. However, there are some areas of the game that force you to do some platforming. - There are 45 levels in the game. Each level is sort of like a micro sandbox environment. Some levels are linear while others are much more open. The next level always begins where the previous left off (for example: if level 18 ended with you climbing a ladder, level 19 will begin at the top of the ladder). Each level takes around 3-7 minutes to finish. - Every level has the same goal which is to find 2 cans of fuel. Sometimes the fuel can only be found by unlocking locked doors or solving puzzles. Some levels also have special items or notes which help tell more of the story. - Sense the air is toxic, the main character uses a special breathing filter. As you explore the levels, your oxygen will decrease. There are a limited amount of oxygen cans scattered around each level. As a player you will have to decide weather to pick up the oxygen cans right away or save them (hint: sometimes its better to save them). Enemies: - The surface is completely uninhabitable. There are no other people, animals or any kind of mutants. So what will you be fighting in this game? Your own mind! - The hot temperatures, lack of oxygen and loneliness cause the main character to have frequent hallucinations. Simply put, these monsters only exist in your mind. However, the sensation of pain is created in the mind so these hallucinations can hurt you (this is why you can feel pain in your dreams). - The enemies range from simple snakes and over sized bees to large killer robots. The fact that the enemies are just hallucinations has really opened up the options for enemy design. Instead of being tied to the theme of the game, I am able to design anything that a person might be scared of. Its been really fun. So how do you fight these things? Fighting: - Combat is fairly simple in this game but its also risky. You have 100 health points and each hit by an enemy (some by touch, others by shooting at you) take 20 health points. Sense the enemies are in your head, using a gun or sword wouldn't make sense. Therefore, you fight by using a "mental blast" which shoots in whatever direction you're facing. (Getting a screenshot of the blast was very difficult but it more or less looks like the hadouken attack from Street Fighter). However, using these blast does have consequences. - The human body requires more oxygen when under stress or scared. Therefore, using your mental blast reduces some of your oxygen. If you remember from my original post, running out of oxygen is deadly. - Combat can range from slow and easy to fast paced and challenging depending on the level and enemy. Pricing: - This will be available for FREE!!! - There will be no in app purchases. I want everyone to be able to enjoy the entire game without spending a cent. - In order to help fund future projects, this game will have ads. However, I am trying to keep the ads as clean as possible. Currently, the only ad in the game is an interstitial full screen (not video) that comes up when you die. Update: After many request, I will be looking into making an additional version of the game with extra content and no ads for .99 cents. The original game will remain free with ads. Screens: Please keep in mind that the real game looks much sharper and plays smoother when playing in real time on a phone or tablet. Youtube adds compression artifacts that do not reflect the true graphics.
