Alter_Light_ is a space shoot ‘em up game made by ManyHat.
We are a group of students at The Game Assembly who had 10 weeks halftime to make this game. Our team consists of 12 people; 5 game artists, 3 level designers and 4 programmers.

The game engine is built from the ground up by ManyHat.

A man, who has just escaped from prison, steals a ship in a desperate attempt to get away. The ship however, is not at all pleased with getting a new owner and does all in her power to show it. To make it even worse, they find themselves drawn into the center of a war between Merc-Power and the Alliance.

Alter_Light_ is a game with epic space battles, thrilling gameplay, breathtaking environments and an engaging story with a humoristic touch.

Personally felt the handling was a little iffy, especially on the rolls. Storyline would be nice too c: OH and, there were a few times where the dialogue and the what was actually being said was off sync.. mostly at the start of the game. Pretty awesome though overall :) nice job.

Cool game! Especially liked Definitely fun! The music is also very good! Great job, team! On a side note I think it'd be cool if you can add a sim mechanic, meaning in your down time you can move throughout your ship and fix it. Kind of like FTL but not exactly... I have some ideas I'd be happy to share. Overall though, great job!

really chilled music :) a really fun combat system and a solid game engine. Would be a great place to continue from adding in some ship customisation, missions, a more intensive HUD and some multiplayer. but an awesome start, i definitly enjoyed the demo, kudos guys.

Looks pretty good actually. I like the idea of the ship being sentient. My only concern is that will the ship fight againist you? If it does it could really screw up some peoples battles.
