Space Capsule Games


Alpha One is a 2D top-down space shooter that uses RPG and narrative elements to guide the player through the game. You pilot a spacecraft, shooting rocks with a mining tool to gather resources to sell. The player utilizes a randomized "galactic map" creating a pseudo open-world where the player can travel to different areas at any time. After the player invents FTL travel the player's home station is blockaded with strange looking asteroids. Before long the player finds themselves hopelessly out matched and must invent new technologies to defend the human race from being enslaved!
