After all the updates and improvements that the game has been receiving since its release, it has proven to be quite solid. Although there are some occasional minor bugs which were reported through the time, I decided to take the time to fix them and push a new update for Action Alien.

The first issue was that sometimes, pick-able objects in the game like keys, food, weapons, etc... would sometimes fly over a long distance when bumped by debris thrown by aliens when breaking up inside a building. While most of the times it was not a serious distance, it could get pretty bad when the object would fell into an inaccessible or forbidden place. This issue was fixed by tweaking the collision settings.

Another commonly reported bug was that in the petrol station map, some aliens were getting stuck when crossing the cliffs around the petrol station. For this reason I improved the path finding in this level and it seems that the aliens are now managing to avoid getting trapped between the cliffs.

To make sure these issues were correctly addressed and that no other ones were left, I decided to make a complete walk through of the game and record it. I still haven't finished it but here are some walk-through for the 3 main maps of the game.

I also added a head bobbing movement to the player view in order to improve a bit the immersion of the gameplay, and more informations in the menu of the game about the new homepage of the game.

A complete change log for the game is available in this Steam post here : Steamcommunity.com

The homepage of Action Alien has also been greatly improved, with a new enhanced flexible design which gives a better overview and description of the game : Actionalien.com

I have also launched Devdangames.com, a website where you can find all the games I have been working on, and especially the one I am working now : Aerial Destruction.

It is a helicopter game featuring a semi-realistic arcade gameplay with colourful graphics where the goal is to destroy armies of bio-engineered mutants during a complete single player campaign followed by multiple missions.

The game has been Greenlit and should be available in Early Access soon ! Check it out the home page Aerialdestruction.com for more description or the Greenlight page Steamcommunity.com

You could add cities and places with buildings and houses to explore..... and also be life bar, hunger, thirst, and perhaps radiation .... I'm Brazilian so I would love if you make available the language '' PORTUGUESE ''

Why are ppl complaining about this game for 10 bucks?
It is in alpha the creator stated and i personal miss more different enemys in the game. The Ai is low, standard search and destroy, but hey it is working(most times).
This game could be a good game in old FPS style. Some more audio, randomnize stuff and paths.
Optimize gameplay. Never put an objective in sight or in reach of the player.
There are dazzillions of bad games out there in final stage, this could be better.

I simply don't get it when people bash you game Devdan!!!
Ok, its not a 10/10 game. But i give it at least a 7 or 8 out of 10!
I have been reading some comments on youtube and i had to reply to some of them, who did a "review". yes, i use " ", because when someone calls something bad just because they don't like the choise of music, or the overall look of a game then i just can't take them serious anymore. Its such a shame though because many people read these comments and "join" in with bashing, just for the "fun" of it.

So, please don't listen to these falls comments Devdan!
As a long time hard core modder/level designer i know all to well how this is. Because 1000 people can say they loved it, you always only remember that one person that made falls accusations.
I always ask myself why people to these things, guess its a combination of just feeling bad at the time and want to bash something, or, being yellous.

What you did is simply amazing, a one man team who does deliver such quality can be proud of himself. Ofcourse are there issues that could have been done better, but even AAA games these days are not flawless. And, as always, is each development a learning process. I tried to stick up for you on youtube, which brought quit some comments either way. What is a good thing, because it seems that always the people who like to bash are writing comments, and those that do like it dont'take the time to write. That is why i take the time here to tell you this.
You did a awesome job my friend!!!!
And forget about those who say otherwise, (at least when they come with wrong, falls and or simply stupid observations!!)

Thank you for taking the time to write this comment SPY-maps !

I am also feeling like many people are bashing my game for the sole purpose of bashing something...

I don't know if it is because my game is an action FPS which makes some people to think I'm trying to compete with Fallout 4 or Battlefield, but some people hate my game so hard that even those who gave a good rating on Steam are being harassed and I have even received some death threats by PM !

I am also wondering how a lot of AAA games had large issues during their launch but without actually triggering such anger from these people, for instance : Youtube.com or Youtube.com

Anyway, I have handled the situation by simply responding calmly to all honest people who gave me their feedbacks or asked me questions.

So despite this, I am not angry and I am currently working hard on the game to add more levels and aliens, and to improve the current one !

I have actually posted the list of what I have planned to do here : Steamcommunity.com
