TAD: That Alien Dude v. 1.0.5 RELEASED!



The Wait Is Over!

TAD: That Alien Dude has been released. Currently in version 1.0.5, this premiere version of the game features updated dialog, original music, original animation, and a wacky storyline.

While not an "Early Access" release, please understand that you can expect TAD to evolve from here (and not via DLCs or via any other kind of paid content). TAD is a work of love, and as such, the development will continue with criticism from the game community being taken very seriously.

Changes from 1.0.0-4 to 1.0.5

* Fusionist level now has full walls and proper layering included
* Dialog boxes have been improved to match style of the game
* Major bug wherein the game could not be completed if not completed on the first try by the player has been squashed
* Sound issues improved

Planned updates for upcoming releases

* Improved enemy animations
* Side quests with new Toon Alley pals
* More cutscenes and an intro
* Open World access to all levels and side quests
* Save game states
* Suggestions always welcome!

About This Game

TAD: That Alien Dude®

PERMADEATH EDITION


Gameplay

You control TAD: That Alien Dude on his quest to escape the infamous Area 91, where he and his cartoon pals of yesteryear have been "protected" by the US Government since the early 1990s. Control TAD in a 2D open world with your keyboard or joypad, fighting off enemies with Pigman's Blade of Avalon, the only known weapon in the Toon Alley sector of Area 91.

With your blade, move through a postmodern map reminiscent of RPGs from "back in the day," where you'll encounter pixel perfect scientists, transhumanists, reptoids, and more as you escape a nightmare of quests, trying to take down whatever nefarious forces are truly controlling Area 91 so that you may return to Hollywoodland, and reintegrate yourself into the animation landscape of today.

With 5 Dungeons and bosses, multiple quests, and a whole lot of original pixel art with an original synthwave OST, do you have what it takes to get the highest score?


Features

* Multilevel map of Area 91, the infamous government military installation that holds living simulations, nuclear reactors, and more madness than a government regime should have access to.
* RPG mechanics: As you go on quests for your fellow captives, er, neighbors, discover the hidden secrets of Area 91 and level up your player and the Blade of Avalon's power.
* Hand drawn pixel art and original soundtrack: All pixel art and music composed especially for this release
* 5 Dungeons: Each dungeon has it's own boss, bosses move along paths based on the application of Catastrophe Theory (Oooh! Real science! KEEN!)
* Longform Animated Cutscenes: A storyline so wild and exciting, you might forget you aren't watching a Saturday Morning Cartoon show!
