Infamous Alien

Name: Infamous Alien
Concept: You are this little alien worm sent by your masters to spread terror through earth. You do this by infecting humans and growing bigger and bigger, until you are known worldwide. But beware, with infamy comes danger; it'll start out as scared citizens with guns, but as you grow, the response will get much more severe...

Gameplay Basics:
  • It will be a side-scroller
  • It will have fairly simplistic graphics, somewhere along the lines of Dig-Dug
  • As gory as 8-bit can get ;)

Forgot to mention, the graphics will also be 100% custom. Most of the sprites are in the conceptual phase right now. By the way, Zhuge; Love Alien 3. Played all the different versions of it, but I think I like the Snes one best.

Similar concept, but different gameplay. In this case you can infect and grow inside suitable hosts to grow bigger, more powerful, more... noticeable.

I like this idea alot :O Will you be able to pick a host though? That'd be cool if you could pick a puppy or something and then it becomes a giant evil zombie dog beast thing

I really like the way that the worm, you say, will grow larger. I think that this game could have some major potential.

Been really busy as of late, I'm not sure if I'll make the deadline. I have most of the sprites done already, but the background titles are proving to be kind of a b**ch. I'll post some screens as soon as a have completed all the necessary graphics.

Maybe, but I'm at a standstill. I simply cannot get the backgrounds to match the sprites. It's definitely not my forte :?

it's better to have clashing backgrounds than no game at all ;)
