To boost Popularity and hopefully give me a head start for the IndieGoGo campaign which will start next week!I will be releasing the alpha for everyone and anyone to try out (hopefully through Desura, but i will keep you informed) this weekend!



The CDF Ghostship Alpha v0.33 will contain :


Story Mode

1 character in Story Mode which may seem huge but is only around 11% of the full ship.

Onslaught Mode (single Player)

2 Onslaught Maps Hangar 2 & Medical

Challenge Mode (single Player)


2 Challenges - Just to the end of the Hall and Scavenger

Arcade and simulation modes will not feature in this Alpha release.

The alpha contains a third of the enemies to feature in the full game and half of the weapons that will feature in the full game. So after playing the alpha you will get an insight to how big the Beta and full game will be.


The last alpha release was 1.7gb and the new one is expected to be just over 2gb, there have been many improvements and additions to the previous alpha which include :

3rd person option - Totally customisable camera

New alien models, animations and textures as well as a new alien - The Big One, The little Ones may also be in this alpha as this is what I am working on at the moment.

New Weapons : Plasma SMG & Plasma Mini-gun (and refinements to current weapons resulting form feedback such as pistol sway etc).

Challenge Mode - 2 maps in challenge mode and one is on the colony!New Front End - Whole new front end which has been implemented for the beta.

Onslaught Mode Kill Counter now working correctly and scoring correctly on result screen!

There have been lots of misc changes to the last alpha such as texture revamps, optimizations, effects etc.The only improvement which was not done was the AI improvements to stop them getting stuck in the ceiling and now and gain being able to get though closed doors etc.

For the people who played the old alpha I am sure you find the new alpha even more "awesome" as most of you have said!



I hope to release this alpha On Saturday 8th June so I will keep you informed how to and when you can download it!

Don't forget to prepare a "sale document\" of around 1 or 2 pages where you will use "exalted" language to resume what your game will be about, number of players, if it will have multiplayer, supported platforms, gameplay and such. You can then use it at your indiegogo campaign as its text.

Do not reveal too much details though(the players will need some surprise still), more text doesn't actually mean a better campaign. Imagine you would be trying to convince a company to fund your game at your indiegogo.

Good luck at your campaign.
