"When the announcement came things got bad, but lately, things have gotten a whole lot worse."

In recent times humans have grown arrogant and cocky about their place in the universe. Long forgotten are the ancient myths and stories of the old ones. Beings that are incomprehensible to the frail human mind.
Screos approaches Earth... growing closer everyday. A collision is imminent and the people in their selfish fear have overlooked the strange details of the feared rogue planet.
Science in all its glory did not detect this planet until a mere time ago. Astronomers attempted to explain this away with vague statements of the scale of the cosmos. After all the universe is unimaginable in size.
And within it , unimaginable terrors await.

Developer: David Brandt / Balance Games

Story: In the near future a ninth planet named Screos is detected in our solar system. This planet is on a collision course with Earth. And as the planet draws near, society collapses and world leaders vanish into hiding. As Earth's gravity begins to pull in the toxic gassy atmosphere of Screos, the effects are catastrophic.


Description: Screos is a survival-horror-action first person shooter. Very mysterious. There are also lot of SciFI influences. At the moment it seems like Resident Evil 1 meets Half-Life.

It seems to be a good start. Keep it up and you'll have a decent hand made game in a year or 2.

It's entirely possible. If the planet is smaller than another planet and directly behind in the same orbital path then we would never see it.

Exactly I dont want to give to much away but the planet is very evil.

In next few days I will work on getting a gameplay video.

Yea I have a bunch of self made models I will use. I've re-textured a lot of models from the packs and what not. I also have a bunch of stuff off the store as well as custom made models from Lafette.

As Wolf pointed out earlier this project probably won't be completed for a while. I don't really have anything detailed or polished enough that I feel comfortable sharing.
But I will share this small gameplay video.
This is a small section from early on in the game and the design is very linear compared to other levels. There are a lot of place-holder models and there isn't much audio yet on the enemies.

There will be big open/outdoor levels too. I'll share more when I feel it's decent.

This is surprisingly good. I did not expect that level of custom gameplay from the screenshots you showed earlier.

That part with the twitching creatures stuck in this organic mass was pretty well made!

I have been working slowly but surely. I have nearly finished the first 2 levels which are the titled Prologue and Apartments. At the moment I'm trying to get the flow feeling good, which is rather difficult. I really don't want the atmosphere on the early levels to be ruined by mindless action. I'm trying to get that balance to where you feel stronger as you get better weapons on later levels. But the last thing I want is for the early levels to feel boring.

Here are some screenshots from the 2nd level "Apartments."
Having just made up your mind to head into the city and investigate your fathers letter the phone rings. It's Traci from down the hall. She pleads for you to come help her with her sick mom, then the line goes dead.

Thank you.

@Medmatheus

Maybe when they are finished I still have some main details to add before they are playable.

Nice palette and usage of assets. Entering the compound (base) in the video was done well.
Look forward to seeing more.

@Defy Thanks!

Here is some gameplay from the 1st level. Well technically it is the second level as I have a prologue that will come before it.
This is still very much a work in progress. There are a lot of place holder entities, such as computer screens, the "phone" in the start, and the red skinless looking enemies i'm not sure about. I made them myself and ehh I dunno I think they need a lot more work.

I can't get the video to embed in the post

I agree ....Man likes to think were advanced, but were really not. Were still driving around in combustible vehicles and its 2019. Theres so much we dont know or have found. -electric cars... Theres a very good chance theres a hidden planet. Good work, keep it up.

I'm almost done with the first 2 levels.

Here are some screenshots of some progress (not just the first 2).
