Wormhole City: Top-down, Scifi Action RPG Alpha demo for Windows PC released

Hi everyone, we're big fans of the history from the members of Playtonic and their development in video games.

We're a two-man development team working with the Unreal 4 engine in hopes of creating a career for ourselves in the games industry.

It would be greatly appreciated to hear your feedback for our game. Currently it's packaged to run on 64-bit PC systems and we're in the process of packaging a 32-bit version as well as Mac and Linux ports. Right now 1368x768 resolution support has not been implemented. If you think our project has enough merit please vote for us on Steam Greenlight and let us know it!

Wormhole City is a single-player sci-fi adventure game with top-down platforming, puzzle and action elements developed in Unreal Engine 4 for PC. Control vehicles and gain power-ups through exploration and defeating enemies while making game-changing decisions throughout your story. Through faster-than-light technology, nations strive to colonize the universe while diverging factions struggle for control and freedom throughout space. Play as space forces, space pirates, and alien races and uncover their motivations in.

If you think our project has enough merit, please support us on Greenlight! Here is the link, a trailer, media gallery and a link to the demo,

Wow only two people! Nice work guys! Visually looks stunning I will try to watch the rest Of the videos.

Just be warned Rare and Ex=Rare Fans... we tend to be very critic about games, so please understand any further comments as they are only opinions that could potentially help shape the game to a greater level!

Keep up the awesome work!

Looking at that poster, it reminds me of the old 90's action-adventure video game cover art.

Thanks for your feedback John Enigma, we were actually going for a more nostalgic look.

New video showing some gameplay footage, not all content shown is in the demo or reflects the order that the levels are played in,

There's a lot to be said, short story is that the game will need a lot of work.

We're down to focusing on gameplay for the pilot, two mechs, and at least air and ground transportation. Developing companion AI / extra playable characters will take a lot of time as well, so that'll probably be focused down to playing the protagonist's party and developing their individual abilities. A lot of the levels were built at the same time, working on one aspect after there was fatigue in developing another. Other levels took extra attention, but at this point I think only some of the gameplay mechanics/assets of these levels would be included in the final version of the game, a newer demo would have to have all new levels.

However I feel encouraged that we have somewhat of a foundation to work and improve on, just worried about time.

Hi everyone, we're excited to show a few new elements we plan to include in our game. Two new skills, short-range teleportation and a storm spell that you will be able to specialize in and use in conjunction with other abilities. We also hoping you enjoy a little underwater gameplay and exploration in Wormhole City with a new underwater suit to pilot!
