Shattered Planet Trick-or-Treating

When Captain Tamara went trick-or-treating on the Shattered Planet, she wasn’t sure what to expect. She handmade a crablet mask, but carnivorous plants and crabs aren’t known for their holiday cheer. With nothing better to do on Halloween, she figured it was worth a try.

Eventually, she found some candies that someone had left lying around.. the Great Pumpkin perhaps?

So, she ate one. Or two. Or twenty.

In her report, Captain Aurora says the candies taste mostly like butter?

(Yes, that gif is directly from gameplay — turning into a crab is not generally recommended, but may get you some new crabfriends.)

Happy Halloween!

Free Game: Sculptorgeist

As a mind-refresher, the Kitfox Krewe took a weekend off from Shattered Planet and decided to do a game jam! If you’re not familiar, the purpose of a game jam is to make a game within 48 hours. And so… we did!

Behold, the glory that is Sculptorgeist:

The official game description: “In Sculptorgeist, you are a poltergeist haunting a clay house. You can only effect the inanimate objects, not the easily frightened clay people that are trapped in the house. Try to get the highest score! Happy haunting!”

Pro tip: Click and drag for maximum scaring… and if you are a MASTER OF FRIGHT, perhaps you’ll earn a secret ending!

If you want to play it, click here and get started!

Furthermore, as you’ll notice in the link, we did it as part of the Indie Speed Run, which is a contest … so if you leave a rating, maybe we’ll win a prize of some kind? Wish us luck!

What Will Your Obituary Say?

We don’t often like to think about death. But with the miracle of cloning, and video games, we can envision a bright new future in which death holds no sway over us!

We are in the midst of implementing our new “Obituary” feature, which pithily summarises what you accomplished during your run through Shattered Planet. Our goal is to keep them short and not overly sweet.

obituary

These are mostly taken from your choices during Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style events in your run, but may also change depending on your behaviour as a player.

Did you kill EVERYTHING you came across or sometimes avoid unnecessary fights? Did you clear ALL the fog off of each map, or race through? Were you teleporting around like Nightcrawler, or did you eschew the use of consumables entirely?

We’re constructing each obituary from your (semi-randomised) “top 3” accomplishments, but the 3 most “interesting” or unusual, not necessarily your most impressive.

We’re only in alpha and we already have over twenty possible accomplishments, which can be combined into over six thousand possible obituaries. We hope to have closer to a hundred when we launch.

Do you have a good descriptor you’d like to see in your obituary?

We were asked, “Why do you show only the female behind? Why not the male?”

The answer would be long and boring*, so let’s just say, “Fair point!”

Here’s the Renegade, for your viewing pleasure:

Enticed?


(*) The long version: It was an accident. We didn’t remember to share that part of our concept art (since we didn’t share lots of our in-progress shots of the Renegade/male character), and we didn’t notice the asymmetry in our postings. We don’t actually expect any of our characters to be sexualised. Please do keep letting us know if something we post seems strange to you!
