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
