Unknown Entity is a WIP in-revised-beta sci-fi first person shooter designed for Windows, Linux, and Mac* that will be released for free. Track the game for continued updates!

Unknown Entity takes place on the Reservatarians' lunar bases on Om-4 B. They had peacefully used it for scientific research of the resources located on the moon, generating an atmosphere, and other topics of focus. Until now...

The bases have been taken over by strange, bio-mechanical race of beings that they are dubbing as 'entities'. The planet has lost contact with the moon and has no idea what is happening.

You are the main protagonist – an UPAESI** chief maintenance officer who usually works around to help develop advancements for astro-technology. You have no idea what is going on either. You lose contact with your team and must investigate alone the cause of the bases' sudden silence, and eliminate the threat you find before nearly 70 years of lunar progress is lost...

Website @ Light_Studios (see here for actual project page).

The game is currently in Revision Update Beta (levels are being designed and less important features are being added). Any images, downloads, content, etc. are unofficial. The latest version is v3.04 (last of alpha stage).




*MacOS (X 10.9+) is available, but is currently untested and does not have as much support.

Update - 2017 September 04

The fifth revision update is here!

The fifth v3 update, the first of the beta stage, includes new levels, new scenery details and effects, bug fixes, and optimizations. -Lightling

v3.05

014

This version now includes levels up to level 15, and features bases 1-6, plus a special type of scene at level 9. Levels scale quickly in difficulty fairly soon, as the number of entities climbs (especially in stage 2 and stage 3 levels). There are also new effects such as repair-objective objects shooting sparks and bullet holes, as well as new environmental effects such as alarms for stages 2/3, fires and other signs of damage on stage 3 levels, outro sequence particles for destroyed bases, and terrain mesh rocks. A number of bugs were fixed and quite a few optimizations were made to the game. HUD elements have been added to inform player of stamina exhaustion and active fire/electrical damage effects.
Note: A couple of bugs were introduced with this version, such as lamps not being on during cutscenes (making cutscenes very dark and black), and a bit of glitching with the new HUD elements.

Upcoming in v3.06

Bases 7 & 8 will be worked on for this version, and hopefully levels available will be increased to 20. More work will be done in the background for the Carrier scene, but won't be present in this version. Cutscene titling, entity dialogue, improved cutscene transitions, new pickup/etc. audio elements (to add variety), and some additional bug fixes and optimizations may also come in this version.

Note: Production will be much slower for now, because school has resumed and cuts into time that would be used for development.

Updates soon to come

It's great to have corrected the errors, but does not work on all computers. I wanted to install on a computer that has more than the game asks me. But the operating system I use is 32 bits which cuts the opportunity to make the game more popular.

Some games designed with the same software that you are dealing with their function with 32-bit operating systems and 64-bit.

Congratulations on your game.

Regards.

I realized it still says "it's exported into x86, but will be built to support both" in the help.odt, even though it should just say "it's exported into x86, which runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit." I'll correct that soon for the next build. However, are you saying it's not working on a (your) 32-bit system? I would like to find out what is wrong so I can fix whatever went wrong, since it SHOULD run fine on both if exported into x86 (especially since x86 IS 32-bit). I just don't have the opportunity to test it on both right now (I have 64-bit and I don't know anyone who has 32-bit). Any information you can provide would be most helpful ^.^ (especially since the game IS bound to have problems at this early of a stage without much help to test) If there is a problem with it running on 32-bit or 64-bit, I'll just export it into both next time.

Also, sorry for the delayed response, I must have forgotten to check IndieDB in the past couple of days.

Thanks! ^.^
Still waiting on the next update to be authorized, but it's available at dropbox if you'd like to see: ( Dropbox.com 1.1.0.zip?dl=0 ). Nothing special yet, obviously, but it's totally a lot better than the direction it was going before the whole original project was lost a while ago XD
EDIT: I guess IndieDB is breaking the % 20 part, so you'd have to copy and paste the first part of that link then press space and then copy/paste the second part... Weird...
