This is an Alpha Test of Prisoner. This is designed for bug finding, and seeing how well the game runs on a wide range of systems. Your feedback is encouraged...
Prisoner is a first person shooter for Windows. Inspired by older titles such as Wolfenstein 3D, Prisoner is the first commercial title by Nala Creations.
I've spent the last couple of weeks playtesting the game, and have decided to leave the weapon system as it was in the alpha demo (try it here). I feel that this streamlined approach makes the game very easy to pick up and play, and really causes you to seek out those all important ammo crates.
The zombies have been ever so slightly altered as I try to balance their speed and damage, and the guards now walk around the map looking for you.
Prisoner is being designed as a small game in the vein of Wolfenstein 3D. It may not feature a long list of weapons or enemies, but the most important thing to me is that the game is fun.
I plan on selling Prisoner through Desura for around $2 (£1.25) once complete, and hope that you will find a lot of value in your purchase. The game will several more enemy types and a splitscreen co-operative mode (which will require an Xbox 360 controller).
I still have quite a bit of work to do, but here's some screenshots from a recent playtest (the hud objects were hidden due to their unfinished art).
If you like the look of the game (and have enjoyed the rough alpha demo) then please do consider tracking this project on IndieDB and following me on twitter.
