Greetings, Human!

Before you read on, please note the Updates tab at the top of the window; This is where news and screenshots are posted as the game is developed.

And if you have any questions about how Kickstarter works, or about OVNI in general, check out the FAQ or send me a message.

< 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!
