Mr. Donovan is a game in a pre-alpha phase of development coming to PC and hoping to release late 2016. This action and exploration game calls upon the player to use science to utilize abilities, quick thinking to mine for resources, and strategy to solve fast paced puzzles, all while battling exotic creatures.
Defend your crashed ship from approaching attackers. Prepare for nightly attacks on your ship.
(Getting debuffs like stun or slow to always override the players current actions was tricky but seams to be working now.)
Discover resources that will allow you to gain a variety of interchangeable and vastly differing abilities. Freely choose ability types that best suit your play style and needs. Are you a bruiser? unlock abilities that focus on damage output at the expense of mobility. Are you a finesse player? using well timed teleportation, skill shots and trickery to demoralize your opponent causing them to surrender.
There are many different types of creatures on the planet, some harmless and passive, some are very dangerous and extremely difficult. If you can impress some enemies with your skill and show flawless execution of abilities then they may just want to forfeit the fight early.
Mine for resources anywhere on the map, you never know what you might find in strange or inconspicuous locations. You may choose to gain abilities that help you locate certain resources or good areas to dig. Mining may seem easy but it is fraught with peril. Resources are not easily obtained.
(Mining was one of the first systems I built into the game, because of that it has needed lots of retooling because everything that I had built on my first pass early in development was not good and easily broken :durr: It seems to be a fun mechanic now.)
Explore the world, there are many things to see and secrets to find. Exploring can also be wrought with danger. Always be vigilant, there are hidden surprises around every bend. Many different and bizarre looking environments will be uncovered.
(The environments have been so much fun to build. Since it's an alien world I'm just going to make them crazy and colorful.)
My name is Elliott, I am the only developer of this game. I have had so much fun developing it and have learned a lot. I am going to try to take the opportunity here on Tigforums to share some of the things that I have learned during development as well as tips & tricks that may help someone else. Mr. Donovan is currently on Steam Greenlight and I am in need of all the support you can give me.
