Huge amount of work being done. We are working mostly on the little visual things, with a few behind the scenes coding stuff for better performance.

We are going to really push the HORROR aspect next! its going to be awesome!

Thank you everyone for your messages, comments and contributions

Have you thought about having the bugs break through cracked walls or come up from floor grates?

How about giving soldiers secondary abilities. Double tapping on the ground will lay down a wall of flames.
Double tapping or a long hold will have another soldier fire a grenade. Another soldier can lay down mines.
The last one can use a dome like energy shield for a short time.

Just a few thoughts.

Thanks

those are good ideas.

The flamethrower shooting the ground to create a barrier hasn't been implemented, but will be there eventually.
As for grenades, It depends on how well our indiegogo does. But fingers crossed we will have them in if time allows

Mines would work similar to the turret, which is already in the game. they would defend an area for a set amount of time.

and energy shield or barrier would be cool to add an extra bit of defence between you and the bugs.

These are all great ideas but we are limited to what we can do in the time given to us.

As for the bugs coming up from the levels, that would be a cool way of scaring the player. But. like zombies coming out of the ground randomly in games, It would be very unpredictable and since this isnt a reflex type of game, would cause a few deaths that may frustrate more than anything.

Oh, and the bugs break down locked doors.

I hope that answers everything. Thank you for the reply
