Action Alien: Prelude is now available ! Gameplay video

Action Alien: Prelude has been released on Steam and is now available !

With a small price of $0.99, the game is featuring hordes of aliens breaking on the petrol station which will need to be contained until you manage to collect enough petrol cans to leave the place with your car !

The petrol station is surrounded by the desert and can be entirely destroyed with machine guns, explosives, and by the aliens coming in waves from all sides.

Dispersed at various spots inside the station, weapons ranging from the revolver, shotgun, tommy gun, grenade launcher, etc... will be appearing each time you defeat an alien wave, along ammo boxes, grenades and medkits.

Aliens are coming as different species and they will run at you, walk loudly, spit acid and come from different places to get you.

To give a bit more of replayability, the game can be played in daylight but also at night.

The game has 10 achievements to unlock, with support for Xbox-like gamepads along Ultra HD resolution (4K).

A gameplay video is also available to have a preview of in-game action.
Changes in the gameplay of Action Alien: Prelude are
  • Destructible buildings.
  • Brighter graphics.
  • Ability to crouch.
  • Wave-based gameplay.
  • No more crates with unlimited ammunition but ammo boxes, medkits and grenades to find after each alien wave.

  • Intro and ending cinematics.
  • and some more...

Action Alien: Prelude coming soon !

For the beginning of this year 2018, a new game based on Action Alien will be released named Action Alien: Prelude.

It is a return to the initial version of Action Alien back to when it was announced at Greenlight in 2014 ! During the development of Action Alien, and even years after it was launched in 2015, the game has received many updates and changes in its core features.

These changes were done to improve the game and make it better for people who had already bought it, but it has changed the game so much that the Action Alien of 2018 has nothing to do with the one from 2014, and this is what Action Alien: Prelude is bringing back.

The main features brought back are these ones :
  • Bright and smooth graphics
  • Cans collecting gameplay
  • The petrol station map in its initial design with cinematic
  • Day and night mode

Of course it would have been too harsh to just release the game in this state, it is why work has been done to improve the game without altering it too much, these improvements are :
  • All bug fixes and patches of Action Alien from 2015 to 2017 implemented into Action Alien: Prelude
  • Added fully destructible buildings and props to the petrol station
  • Added achievements, Steam cloud, xbox-like controllers support and 4k resolution
  • A lot of tweaks on the gameplay, weapons and controls to be best fitted for the petrol station map.

The game is still being tested and enhanced, it should come soon on Steam.

It will of course be available for a much cheaper price compared to Action Alien, and trading cards will be added as soon as possible.
So check the Steam store page and add it to your wish-list to not miss the release !
