Cart #19909 | 2016-04-19 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | No License

A space-horror mystery game about finding a sneaky shapeshifter amongst your crew - get them before they assimilate everyone - including you! Made in one weekend for Ludum Dare 35.

Figuring out how to identify the shapeshifters is half the fun, so I wont spoil it!

Hard mode makes more shapeshifters at the start.

It still needs a proper aftermath, so I might revisit it if I get some time this week. Posting to cartridges rather than WIP because I might not.

Have Fun!

Runtime error on line 1692: Attempt to index local 'V' (a number value) in ? line 1371 in draw_state line 1258 in _draw line 1579.

Looks like a good game so far though! Hope you decide to continue with it.

Wow, this is an awesome idea but I just can't figure out the rules. My best score so far was from firing randomly.

EDIT: I think I'm seeing some of the pattern but I won't spoil it here. Cool game.

@Scathe: I've had this crop up more than once but got no idea what's causing it at this point, will give it a look when I can but it's staying at "compo" grade polish for now I'm afraid

@Connorses: Seems like that's what everyone says - I'm glad a large % of people seem to get to the "aha!" moment without too much guidance.

Great game!

I ran into an error once :

runtime error
return {V[1] / S, V[2] / S}
line 1684: attempt to index local 'V' (a number value)
in ? line 1364
in draw_state line 1251
in _draw line 1571

Nicely done!

I've not managed to figure it out yet, though

Welp, i tried.
At least its good practice for 2d shooters.

Really no idea how it works. I had 10 survivers in hard mode the first time I won but I guess it was pure luck.

Another time, in easy mode I stayed with the sentries all the time and they never died, but then i randomly shooted guys and got 8 survivors lol

Ok I checked the code and I think the only hint to find the shapeshifters is:

each character has a special path, and can't go into some zones, so if you see a redshirt going into the "Lab", then it's an alien
