Planet in the Shadows
The gameplay is a fusion of multiple genres:
- Explore caves in a dungeon crawl style.
- Build your base with blocks, use a simple crafting system.
- Defend your base from the hostile environment.
- Keyboard and mouse controls: use whichever you prefer.
- A tutorial stage to show you the ropes.
- Fight back by planting mines: the player has no traditional melee attacks.
- Regular checkpoints instead of permadeath.
- Simple, streamlined mechanics allow the player to focus on the action.
- The spirit of space exploration!
This is Planet in the Shadows - inspired by the dungeon crawler genre, this short game blends traditional spelunking with base building mechanics. The player is stranded on a hostile planet, urged to build a base and defend it against the awfully aggressive forces of the hostile environment.
