CONVOY is a tactical top-down roguelike-like in which you need to escort a convoy of trucks trying to reach an old space centre. It is your only chance to get off the planet.

On your journey you will not only need to survive the harsh desert environment, but will also need to defend yourself against raiders, warriors and cultists trying to get a piece of your cargo.

Levels will consist of a variety of (semi)procedurally generated encounters featuring combat, dialogue and chance based role-play, rewarding you with experience, loot and weapons used to upgrade your squad. Death is permanent, though you might unlock new starting units along your travels.

In Alpha 0.4, we're introducing the first stage of the planned objectives system. Where before you would just drive from A to B, you will now need to explore the map in all directions to find and complete your objectives.

These changes were made to allow us to incorporate a basic story structure while still allowing for a great deal of freedom. The story, along with functional objectives will be added in the future!

Meanwhile, this new structure also allows for more elaborate and complex unlock triggers, where you will, for example, need to complete specific objective in a certain way to unlock something. This is just an example, but the possibilities are much broader now!

Hey, thanks for the feedback!

Yeah, the "just drive to the end and win" is something we're still working on. We're looking at making it more so you have a "mission" first where you need to find several parts for your spacecraft before you can leave the planet. To get the last part you will need to defeat a boss.

BTW, the boss is in already with some basic funtionality. We're working on improving the AI and giving him some more special abilities.

So, to sum it up, it's the closest thing to FTL meets Mad Max (?)
And how's the control? Do we directly control our own player/avatar unit while issuing orders to the other units, or is it turn-based or real-time (as in FTL)?

Well, I suppose you could describe it as that :)

You control your units similar to how you'd do it in an RTS. You select a unit and order him to move or attack a target. Each unit's weapons can also be controlled individually to maximise their efficiency. Some (probably most) units also have an ability (repair drone, EMP blast, etc.) which needs to be targeted individually.

Heh, well, we're still experimenting with the story at the moment. There will be a boss though!

Also, would you like an alpha invite? ;)
