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.

Also features:

  • 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.
