ENGN PS 25 – Lifeform with Tristan Hall and Mark Chaplin

Many solo and cooperative gamers love Legendary Encounters: Alien. However, for as good as that game is, it doesn’t replicate the emotions of the original movie – the suspense, the dread, or the desperation to survive. Lifeform, currently on Kickstarter, aims to bring you just that.

It is a one vs. many game where an unstoppable alien being has boarded your mining ship, and you have to scramble out of the ship as best you can. We get into some design questions about the one vs. many aspects of the game, as well as the solo mode that you can get separately with the Kickstarter.
