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.

0 comments by P4p3Rc1iP on May 16th, 2014

We've just uploaded Alpha 0.5 to Desura!

In this update, we've added more abilities, dialogue, and improved gameplay feedback by adding a range indicator to units.

We're always looking for more feedback, so if you haven't got the alpha yet, send us a message and you'll get a key!


Anyway, the changelog of 0.5:

Added:

  • Mine Thrower MCV utility - Comes in 2 types, HE and EMP.
  • Mine Layer AI ability - Some enemies can now place mines behind them.
  • TAUNT (TAUNT Assigned Universal Next Target) passive - Forces enemy to shoot at the vehicle.
  • Range indicator around units - Select a unit and you will see its range!
  • Mine guard upgrade to all units - Adds resistance to mines.
  • Several new dialogues - Insult fighting is a thing now...
  • The first main objective -Still a work in progress, but the foundation of the system is there.

Changed:

  • The way enemy chooses targets - Enemies will now switch targets more quickly, depending on threat.
  • Font slightly to improve readability - This is part of the coming interface overhaul!
  • Starting layout of units and convoy - This is to improve new player experience, still a work in progress.

Fixed:

  • Repair drone - Now goes on cooldown when used.
  • Enemies generation - Enemies should no longer spawn without weapons.

Really loving this game atm!

But, I think we need some way to scrap all the junk we collect, as it is quite hard to save up a supply of parts (for me at least!)

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.

Looks very good, travking but a few questions:

Does it have end? or is just go until you die?

And what features are you planning for this, some kind of different locatinos, you select were you go maybe?

PD: it reminds me a little to FTL in some aspects, if you make something like that it eould be amazing.

To answer your questions:

Yes, it will have an end. We're not sure exactly how we'll do it though. Maybe a boss, maybe something else, we're not sure yet. If you have any suggestions, let us know!

Selecting where you go is a feature we have planned. No details yet...

And yes, we are big fans of FTL ourselves! ;)

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? ;)
