The game you are trying to view has ceased development and consequently been archived.

Parasite takes place right in the middle of the trilogy storyline. After being a victim of the horrendous experiments being run in a secret place, the protagonist manages to escape, but crashes in a space station where strange events have taken place. She must fight her way to survival and try to find a way out of that place, either by herself or with the help of the survivors of the UDM Barracuda.

"Games are not finished, they escape." This post is an extremely brief discussion about how the design of the game evolves over time. More will be discussed on this as we share more information about Parasite :)

(This post was originally published on Parasite's "sorta-creative director's" blog here).

Game development is cool, we all know that (or at leas those working in the area know that). When working on Parasite we've been making a many iterations on how the levels are designed, so we keep a "consistent" experience (so to speak), meaning that the entire set of rules works across the levels.

This same iteration process is also being used to find ways to tell the story (while rewriting parts of it too, heh). This isn’t only being used to make a better story, but also to present it in a more “dramatic” way, so you uncover the different layers little by little (or at least I hope it ends up working that way).

So the downside is that you have to be ready to ditch some of the work you've already made, and this can be kinda hard, but these kind of choices help you make a better product.

I once heard that movies are not finished, they escape. I can say the same about games or any other medium, since it's finished when it's polished enough and ready for primetime, but I think you can never say "ok it's finished" since you can always find new things to improve and others you're never happy with.

Enough of this nonsense! See you next week! Remember you can follow me on Twitter, and also see more of Parasite on Facebook and Twitter.
