Xenomorphs have hatched!

Okay I really need to get some sleep, it’s a quarter past 4 in the morning! But look! I’m really happy with progress on the game.

I’ve narrowed the premise down to a model that I am satisfied with. Here it is:

  • You are a lone marine trapped inside the LV426 Colony, your squad mates are presumed dead.
  • You are armed with an M41A Pulse Rifle but you have no bullets left!
  • There are four dead bodies of you fallen comrades laying around the map in the locations of the Pacman Mega-Pills. Each body has 1 magazines worth of salvageable ammo containing 25 bullets. (There are 100 total bullets per level)
  • The floor of the LV426 Colony is strewn with items that were knocked over or dropped when the chaos began, amidst the rubble you can find batteries to power your flashlight. (These batteries would be the normal pills from Pacman)
  • There is also a Motion Tracker at the location of the Pacman Cherry. The motion tracker will show the player the location and range of any Xenomorphs in the direction it is looking.
