Eris is an open world FPS, with some tower defense and RPG elements thrown in for flavor. In Eris, you are stranded on an alien planet. You’re only hope to escape is the mother ship stored in the main alien stronghold. You must capture alien towers to weaken their main stronghold, so you can break in and steal the mothership. Place defenses such as turrets to protect towers you’ve captured. Upgrade your suit with a jetpack to fly around the battlefield, or boost your armor and tank all the damage you want! Customize your character to suit your play style! Cast spells to burn, freeze, or electrocute your enemies! Take the fight online with up to 7 friends!
First off, got a new ranged enemy in the game this week. Using extremely placeholder art of course.
We also added new enemy spawning ships to make battles a little more intense.
Several people suggested I make the car wider/shorter to improve stability, so I did just that and it was a big improvement.
Lastly, we decided we want the towers to be built out of modular pieces, so we made a small test arena out of simple walls and floors to test out the idea.
All that and more in this week’s Pre-Alpha preview of Eris!
