What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We still have a lot of content to create as well as balancing and optimizations. We really want community feedback so we can make sure we have a strong foundation and well-balanced characters before we proceed to build out additional planets, enemies, and allies.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“3-6 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We have polishing and optimizing to do but the primary changes will be improved balancing and adding new content -- new levels, new enemies, new weapons, and possibly new character classes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access build includes 8 maps from 2 planets (out of total 18 maps planned) . You may select from 4 different character classes. Players should expect significant character class, weapon, tower, ability balancing to occur during the early access period. There are still bugs in the game and we have not yet optimized frame rates and overall responsiveness. We also don't have our keyboard & controller mapping customization working yet.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We expect to gradually increase the price as we get closer to the final release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan on taking feedback from the early access community on everything from alien design & behaviors to level designs to balancing and difficulty settings. We will be active on the steam community forums monitoring player feedback and bugs. and communicating directly with the community as the game progresses.”

About This Game

OVERVIEW

Alien 911 is a hybrid 3rd person shooter and tower defense game. You can play it solo or team up for local or online multiplayer. We took our inspiration from Orcs Must Die, Dungeon Defenders, and Sanctum which are games we loved to play together as a family. This is our first game and we're excited to bring it to the Steam community.

BACKGROUND

Development of this game started more than 5 years ago as a way to teach my two sons and my daughter about programming. As a family, we were hooked on the hybrid shooter + tower defense genre and my son was obsessed with drawing alien creatures. We mashed them together with a father's desire to show his kids that they could not only play video games, but they could also learn to create them, and that was the original genesis of our game. Fast-forward to present day and with my kids off to college I decided to dust off the old game idea and enlist the help of some great indie-friendly artists, animators, and developers bring it to life.
