Hey Guys, ShadowGaming Here! I would like to introduce and describe my entry for the Summer Flowjam 2022!
Sorry if it’s long.
Taking place in the year 2084, astronauts, Adam, Olivia, Michael, and William must traverse the mysterious planet Nibiru, gather intel about the disappearance of scientists who once inhabited the planet, and find missing parts to rebuild their ship while battling deadly aliens standing in their way.
Nibiru is a survival/ adventure game where you and your teammates must journey through an alien planet and take on diverse aliens along the way.
Enemies and what they do / Tactic(s):
Parasite (Common Enemy): Will scratch you when near.
(Spawn from eggs, you can shoot the eggs before they hatch)
There are also mutations. Mutations are the aliens you should really be careful with as they release a very intimidating damage output and they are able to pin you. Pinning you is a feature where if a certain mutated enemy performs a certain attack, they can lock you in place and only death or a teammate will stop the pin.
Catalyst (Mutation): Spits an acid ball that follows you for a short time (If the acid ball makes contact it will deal damage for some time before disappearing).
Lurker: Sneaks and waits for the right moment to lunge on you when they pin you.
Mangler: Will grab you, lift you up, and crush you when they pin you.
(If you see a mangler you might want to keep your distance, sometimes they will charge forward really fast all of a sudden and grab you).
Siren: Will chase you. If they land a hit they will incapacitate you but continue to attack you until death.
(If you see a Siren, keep your distance, you do not want to bother it, but if you do, do it at your own risk).
In-Game Mechanics and things to know:
Weapon: Ray Blaster
Charging Station: Charging Stations are used to refill your ammo but be careful, once you start recharging, you cannot cancel, this can be the perfect opportunity for a mutation to pin you.
Things I might add:
More Weapons: More weapons would be really cool and I have limited time so I might just stick with the Ray Blaster.
Leveling up: Leveling up gifts you with Vitality. Vitality is used to update your health and weapon strength.
Classic: Just a classic alien shooter, pretty balanced.
Survivor: Enemies are pretty tough and strong, traverse with caution.
Nightmare: Things are at their peak as enemies are tougher and stronger than ever before. Make one wrong move and it’s game over.
There might be some things I have to scrap and there could be some issues I run into that might cause me to scrap the whole game altogether, so sorry for that, I’ll try my best to ask for help if I need to.
Thanks for reading and if you have any ideas or other things feel free to let me know.

Edit: The game is not finished.
Update: Disregard the pin system, it has been scrapped. | The Mangler is now called the Bruiser.
