Infested Planet is a game about fighting hundreds of swarming relentless aliens with a team of five marines. The aliens mutate and adapt, gaining new abilities. Your task is to outsmart their mutations, to drive them back and to exterminate them.
On steam for $14.99 USD, early access gives you access to the Beta. Full release now available.
The expansion DLC is out!
The game is about to get a new mini-expansion: "The Trickster's Arsenal". The details of what's inside are still being worked on, but I can announce some new combat abilities.
The DLC is going to add 7 new powers, kind of like the chopper strike, but with different effects. For example, one ability is STASIS FIELD - you can fire it at a hive and freeze everything in the area. The hive can't take damage, but it also can't do anything to you. Good for splitting up enemies. Another one is OVERDOSE - you lose some health, but your marines go into a frenzy.
The abilities allow you to fight in new ways, like teleporting across the map to deal with an emergency.
At least some parts of the DLC will be free to everyone who owns the game. For example, I didn't want to split the leaderboards between DLC and non-DLC, so the new abilities are unlocked for everyone if you're playing a leaderboard map.
Here are the patch notes:
Horde mode has been added to the weekly challenges and the campaign. There are also a bunch of small fixes and improvements.
Welcome to the last scheduled patch before release! It's been a crazy ride to get here - thanks for coming along and testing the game in Early Access...
This update adds a large feature to the game - Weekly Challenges. I hope that you'll join me and other players in attacking the maps each week and seeing...
I went slightly insane in the last month and revamped several of the units, buildings and technologies in the game. The thrust of a lot of improvements...

"On June 21st everyone who preorders the game will be able to download and play the public beta version."
Where is the link for download??
Check out his blog. He explains it all there.
as soon as SDL+opengl and the game is cross-platform PC+Mac anyway, any chance for linux build also?
I can't wait for a release. Keep up the good work! Do you have a plan for any sort of demo? Or are you just going to release a trailer?
Looks great..Keep it up :-)
What language and what graphics API are you using? C++ and SDL? C++ and DirectX?
I'm using SDL + OpenGL. The game's written in C++.
Art: I love the colors, and art style. They go very well together. Except I didn't think the red in the middle was blood. It looks more like a rock to me.
Game: The first picture makes me think that this will be a co-op/team game. Is this going to be a solo adventure, or will there be multiplayer? If not multiplayer, will there be AI teammates?
Heh - I had the exact same thought about the blood.
Hey can we get some modding tools or maybe some cheap skin packs? Your games like perfect for some starship troopers mods or skins and no one seems to have to stuff to do it yet.
Nevermind the multiplayer question. I read the summary of the game.
