< THE GAME >
OVNI is a free game currently in development using Flash/Flixel.
In OVNI, players pilot an interstellar craft across the surface of the Earth, harvesting Earthling Meat (Humans, livestock, etc.) which ultimately ends up as a Slurpee-like product back on the Homeworld
The ship has a cloaking device which allows the player to pass through lights without being detected, but this drains the same limited energy as the ship's thruster.
Each level has a meat quota, and successful players will eventually see their meat-smoothie stand back on the Homeworld grow to be a bustling commercial hub!
However, careless players who become detected or crash after running out of energy will be swiftly terminated by the Intergalactic Fast Food Consortium, accompanied by a small severance package and a large dose of toxic gas.
< THE PLAN >
While the basic gameplay is complete, there is a lot of testing and content generation remaining to be done. This is where you come in.
I'm reaching out to DIY enthusiasts, indie game geeks and UFO believers and non-believers alike to generate content for OVNI.
Levels, characters and even portions of the story will come from the Kickstarter community, so your participation is essential.
Following the 15-day funding period there will be a 15-day submission and playtesting period, after which I'll release the game to the public.
Take a look at the backer tiers to see how you can get involved in OVNI!
