Then you're going to love what Alien Arena has in store for you! This game combines some of the very best aspects of classic deathmatch, and wraps them up with a retro alien theme, while adding tons of original ideas to make the game quite unique. Alien Arena is a furious frag fest with arenas ranging from the small, to the massive. With game modes such as Capture The Flag and Tactical, there are terrific team-based experiences to be had as well as 1v1 duels, free-for-all, and dozens of mutators to alter the game play to your liking.

Alien Arena 2011 is nearing completion and is expected to be released within a month.

Posted by on

We see the light at the end of the tunnel, and the release of Alien Arena 2011 is expected to take place in a few weeks. We are sitting on this monster, just to make sure that everything is working a-ok, given the enormous amount of code changes that took place. We want to ensure that everything is 100% stable, and that the end users get the best possible experience.

We have remixed our official trailer to reflect some of the new content, new engine work, and new physics. Wasting little martian guys have never been so much fun!

There are a number of major updates for this release, most importantly, ragdoll physics, AutoTools implementation, two brand new levels, and new music by Paul Joyce. There is a long list of other improvements as well, and while we didn't get to everything we wanted to, suffice it to say it's a major step forward.

There are as mentioned two brand new levels in this game, dm-anniliation and dm-neptune, two very thematically inspired levels, showing the direction that the game has been heading in some time.

Dm-Neptune(undersea Roman(or is it Martian!?) relic)

Dm-Neptune central Dm-neptune room #2

Dm-Annihilation(post apocalyptic Asian ghetto ruins)

Dm-anniliation - indoor area. Dm-annhiliation, ground floor, first region.

Both of these new levels feature very dynamic, circular gameplay, with a variety of vertical vantage/escape points, and both feature some of the more dazzling effects that the engine has to offer. Following in the footsteps of levels like Dm-Purgatory, Dm-Invasion, Dm-Deathray, and others, the atmosphere's are lush, alive, and immersive.

Stay tuned...more to come!

While it's all very nice, I would have appreciated a UI and some noob friendly tutorials.
