EARTHLINGS NEWS NETWORK

 
 
 

Earthlings The Game is a small pixel-art world, almost reaching the smallest expression of art in pixels.

In Earthlings you will live an adventure where you will travel through planets you can explore in big spaceships. You will visit ancient lost temples of unknown alien civilisations full of secret mysteries that will be revealed. All leading in an adventure where you will discover that humans are not the “only” earthlings, and the world and Solar System are not what you believed they were.

Earthlings The Game recuperates a part of the click & point games where you will explore and use your ingenuity to advance in the story. You will be able to interact with a lot of elements of the scene, searching, looking for and taking not always useful elements. With very big and wide worlds where you can spend hours exploring and discovering alternative and complementary elements to the main story. In our hazardous adventure you will find multifarious characters who will delight us with conversations which will help you to unravel the hidden details of this story. We want you to live a legendary proportioned story that will not leave you indifferent.

Additionally, “Earthlings The Game” also combines action. During the game you will have to defend yourself and attack with various weapons you will find. We have added a “roguelike” style where you will have to make your way by bursting in if discretion is not your style or if you have no other choice.

We want you to be able to live a full adventure, therefore, we have joined classical adventure with action. All in all in a pixelled world.

We honestly hope having awakened your curiosity for our video game. And to make possible our adventure attains as far as possible, the first launch will be available at Windows, Mac and Linux.

The Moon has been inhabited by an old civilization that watches and protects the Earth from outer threats for thousands of years.

Our heroine, Selena, on a scouting trip to the tiny planet called "ORCUS", found a starship that is astonishingly identical to a starship found on the moon thousands of years ago, prior to even the existence of the Selenites.

At her return to the Moon, Selena, started to notice some weird cases of madness. The central system which all Selenitas are connected to, forming a collective brain, had been corrupted. Selenitas' brains had been turned so that they would kill themselves. Communications with other command centers located in other galaxies revealed that they were facing the same problem and that there were just a few survivors.

Selena found a body connected to a server next to a strange artifact. With her Mentor´s help she discovered why they had been attacked and most importantly by whom…

Since the dawn of time the Selenitas have been facing an old civilization of gaseous beings, "The Amenoi". Their goal is to collect as many artifacts as possible along the Solar System; those artifacts are a source of great power, and we cannot even imagine what would happen if they collected them all.

The strike has been devastating and the Earth is no longer protected. Selena must discover what those artifacts are and find the rest of them. Therefore, she has to travel through the Solar System to obtain them before “the Amenoi” do. All her skills will be tested to overcome the traps, riddles, and challenges. Selena will confront them in the temples where the artifacts are; meanwhile, she will fight “The Amenoi” and "The Titans", the artifacts' protectors. Along her adventure, she will discover overwhelming temples, spaceships and awesome planets.

This fight began millenniums ago and now it should come to an end.Therefore, she will need to travel to the center of the Earth.

At Earthlings we care for details. Although is a pixel-art game we have added in all characters of one´s own movements according to their race and individual characteristics. More over sprite´s animations are enhanced until 8 directions, something quite unusual in this kind of games. You can realize a big variety of movements on every single action.

As you can appreciate on the down bellow image, we have created a bunch of cool weapons to enable you to destroy almost everything to pixels. A lot of artifacts are hidden and special that will enlarge your “Diogenes” Syndrome.

Watch out with the infected! Which kind of developers we would be if we did not included infected, but take care, they are very irritating, indeed programmers have design them in the way that you will always be their first option on their menu.

Not everything you will find is non-stop action. You will need to know when to stay silent. Stealth is an option. That´s why we have put at your disposal some “carrying bags” to pack-up whoever can bother you on your way, and hid it afterwards away from the sight of anyone. Some characters will not detect us if we sneak silently while they are backwards giving us the chance to hit first.

We also have combo´s that will help us along the fight. We show you some of them. As you can see there is a large variety of enemies. The can detect and attack us in many different ways. Find out their weak points is part of the adventure.

This is a great adventure! We will find a lot of different characters. Some of them will be friendly, some not so much. We have infected, androids, monsters, bugs, aliens and some outlandish characters that you will meet through this epic adventure.

So far so good, to know what to do you will need to investigate and talk to other NPC´s. They will help you, if you ask the right questions. You can have the oddest conversations you could ever imagine, funny and interesting as well. Some of those NPC´s would ask your for “favor”, but none will ask you for wild boar extinction.(wow Inside Joke)

As stated beforehand we want to enlarge your “Diogenes” Syndrome that´s why we have spread a vast amount of things all along the game. We have created place in which you will get lost finding special or survival items, weapons, ammunition, and who knows, you maybe could find us inside.

What would be of this immense loot, without a half decent inventory? So we have created one for you, in which you will be able to manage your stuff as you want, but be careful everything has a limit.

If you went through this that means that like the adventure. But we have many more places to go. The whole Solar system! But not only planets, but also Jupiter´s and Saturn’s moons, with temples, and rests of civilizations already extinguished, which you will have to rediscover to reach the end of our story. You will be able to explore asteroids like Ceres, with mining camps. Tiny planets at Kuiper´s belt, with endless secrets to be unveiled. You will face frozen worlds, others in flames or lava, deserted ones or with exuberant weird vegetation. You will reach them through space travels, along the intergalactic highway, evidence of the Selenita´s civilization progress. All this with ships that you will have to explore, and in some cases to travel on them as a stowaway, prisoner or as a shiny commander of the ship, who knows?

Harmony, melody and rhythm. That´s what music is! Thanks to the talent of Marcelo we have a great soundtrack, which will follow us all along our adventure, with more than 40 minutes of original music. We let you check some samples to start enjoying it.

Juan Carlos Román ( @JuanCarlosR82 ) The other half of this crazy adventure. Everything that you see has being designed by him. He loves online games and epic adventures. If your character is not responding as it was supposed to, you know who was in charge.

Marcelo Fernandez ( @marcelofg55 ) He is our composer and sound engineer, he has experience writing music for different kind of video-games, and multimedia projects.

Without your help Earthlings The Game will not be possible, as we want it to be.

The money collected through kickstarter will be used to fund the whole team until the end of the production process. We will recruit more people to speed-up the job, as a junior designer, a programmer, a writer and a musician. As well as a professional producer to guide us through this process until the end of the game, and pay all the software licenses. And of course a lot of coffee.

Here you are a small breakdown of the destination of the funds:
