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!
We worked on getting a menu system in place this week, as well as some simple multiplayer features.
I’ve tested the multiplayer with a simple lobby. There’s chat, and you can change your screenname.
Now that we’ve got a client/server set up. Getting some real online gameplay should not be too hard.
