Well Alien is my favorite space movie of all time, Loved Aliens too. So I would like to see something kinda like a Xenomorph in game. How it could happen is you find a abandoned ship floating above a planet sending a distress signal. You get a goal to help the ship. Then you board the ship and its dark with emergency lights flashing and you go through a few rooms nothing happens then you have to fight off a horde of Xenomorphs, then you find a survivor, who acts strangely before dying and becoming a Xenomorph mini boss. Once you beat that you fight another horde, then your goal changes to Blow the ship up you fight your way to the engine/reactor room and The Queen is there with some normal Xenomorphs and once you kill her the Timer starts giving you a 3-5 Minutes to escape before the ship explodes no Xenomorphs or very little should spawn now. Your goal changes to escape. Once you board the ship you should respawn on the Ship instead of back on yours so you can stay on the quest, if you teleport back to your ship instead of doing it, a notice should pop up if you leave the Quest will reset then you select yes or no. The loot for this is a reward from the ships wreckage so the only way to get it is to survive the quest. Death during the count down results in a failure and no loot. The reason for this loot stipulation is to avoid being able to farm loot. Environment should be dark, creepy and a very large ship that could be considered maze like. Mobs: Grey Xenomorph, Black Xenomorph, Red Xenomorph (Miniboss) Queen (At least twice as tall as the others) NPC: Crazy Survivor Grey Xenomorph Spawn in Waves in certain Rooms on the ship Most common type (75%) Size Tall as Player half as tall when crawling Weak Attack Clawing Short range Low Health 1-3 hits to kill Medium speed walks on two legs or Crawls on all fours (Can crawl on walls and ceiling) Weakness: Fire 2x Damage Loot: 1-3 Hard Resin 0-1 Acid vial 0-2 Alien meat Special: Explodes into a cloud of acid on death dealing very low damage very short range (Pretty much standing on one at death) Black Xenomorph Spawn in Waves in certain Rooms on the ship Lower spawn rate (25%) Size Tall as Player half as tall when crawling Medium Attack Clawing Short range Medium Health 3-5 hits to kill Medium Speed walking fast speed crawling (Can crawl on walls) Weakness: Fire 2x Damage Loot: 1-5 Hard Resin 0-2 Acid Vial 0-2 Alien meat Special: Explodes into a cloud of acid on death dealing very low damage very short range (Pretty much standing on one at death) Red Xenomorph Mini Boss 1 Per ship/Quest Spawn when you find a Survivor (Survivor dies spawning the Mob) Size Taller than player by just a little High Damage Claw very close range, and medium to long Ranged Acid spit dealing Low Damage and adding a Damage over time effect doing low damage High Health 10-15 hits High Speed only walking/jumping Weakness: Fire 2x Damage Loot: 4-10 Resin 1-3 Acid vial 0-3 Alien meat Low chance at a weapon drop Rifle or Flamethrower Special: Explodes into a cloud of acid on death very low damage very short range Queen Final Boss of quest Spawn in the Reactor room Size Twice as tall as player High Damage claw short range, Ranged attack tail whip Medium damage Very High health 20+ Hits Medium speed walking only Weakness: Fire 2x Loot: 15 Resin, 1-5 Acid Vial 0-5 Alien meat Low Chance at a Rare weapon any type, 1 Egg Trophy Special: Death kills all other Xenomorphs on screen, and creates a acid pool dealing low damage if standing in it. NPC: Crazy Survivor Random race looks kinda bloody or hurt Tells the player to stay back, then cries out in pain and dies turning into a Red Xenomorph Loot: Black and Grey: Hard Resin, Acid vial, Alien meat Red: All the above and a Ranged Weapon/Flame thrower Chance Queen: Rare Weapon, 15 Hard Resin, Egg Trophy to display your awesome power! Hard Resin is a crafting material that can be used to make weapons, armor and building blocks. The theme would be Alien like Acid Vial could be a single use Item to add damage to weapons adds a Damage over time dealing weak damage Alien meat, cook-able food. Ranged Weapon OR Flame Thrower, A rifle that shoots bullets or a weapon that shots a flame out doing damage, and adding a burning effect to anything not fire resistant. Rare Weapon Could be anything in the game weapon wise that is rare. Egg would be a Trophy you get for beating the quest only way to get it. Location: A floating space ship or space station above a planet or moon Should be like a Dungeon or Special Quest area Dark with yellow/red lights flashing emergency style Audio should be suspenseful and creepy The death of the Queen causes the Reactor to go critical giving you 3-5 Minutes to get to a teleporter room to escape before explosion Rooms: Teleporter room, the only room you can leave the ship. First area you come to. (Teleporting back to your ship or the surface will result in event loot coming back with you unless in this room) Always Safe Med Bay Near the spawn room, this is where you respawn if you die Always Safe Hallways just connecting the rooms together No spawns until after Cargo Bay 1 then 0-5 Xenomorphs Bunk room Location where the crew sleeps a bad should be here Cargo bay 1 The first fight is here should be near the Med bay but after the bunk room Medium sized attack 5-15 Flood into the room Mess hall Secondary ambush 7-15 Flood into the room Control Deck Crazy Survivor is here and the Red Xenomorph Cargo Bay 2 Large attack of 7-15 Xenomorphs Sub hallways Cramped hallways 1-3 Xenomorphs leading to the Reactor Reactor room Large room, Queen fights here timer starts on her death Escape Back track the level no Xenomorphs all about being quick making it out of the ship All the rooms should share a theme until Sub hallway and Reactor both of which should have Hard Resin looking theme to let you know your getting closer to the end. The theme should be Research like giving the theme that they were studying the Xenomorphs. The Ship should be unbreakable so you can't break into space, and you should be limited if you can place blocks here as it will explode when you beat it. Xenomorphs features Movement Grey and Black move faster when walking on two legs, however when crawling they gain the ability to climb walls and ceilings Red Should move faster than Black and Grey Queen moves slower than all but deals higher damage Attacking/Damage Short range melee (All Xenomorphs) Speed is Quick but time between attacks is slow Damage scaled based on color Grey weakest Black medium Red does high and Queen deals a lot Acid spitting (Red only) Medium long range fast moving use often if very far away, uses less often at medium range and closer Medium damage and maybe adds a Damage over time acid burn Tail whip (Queen only) Medium range Uses often if in range High damage easy to avoid though Upon death they explode into a lime green cloud that deals very low damage if standing in it Queens acid pool does slightly more damage than the clouds but stays on the map until it blows up All Xenomorphs are immune to acid damage All Xenomorphs take double damage from fire Health Grey Should be low health Black Should be medium Health Red Should have a high amount of health (Minboss) Queen should have huge amount of health (Boss) Armor Grey have little to no armor damage reduced by 5% Black have a little armor damage reduced by 7% Red has a medium amount of armor damage reduced by 10% Queen has a huge amount of armor and health damage reduced by 15-25% Fire ignores all armor and deals double damage Notes: This would be a special event very rare and hard to find So some things might need regulated Foreseen issues A lot of work Copyright issues maybe not sure how this works Will have to limit player actions like teleporting, and mining/building for the event to work properly Feel free to comment suggestions and your ideas that are relevant to this topic. Feel free to criticizes but please provide constructive criticisms All visual information should come from science fiction movies based in space and the movies Alien and Aliens. Upon request I can post pictures, however I recommend you look into pictures of Xenomorphs and watch the movies to understand the ideas I am trying to get at. I really would like for you to come up with your own idea of how a pixel Xenomorph might look like. I'll try to answer any questions and fix any errors you point out. The idea I had was Zombies but they tend to be overplayed so I went with a different approach that would fit in and pay homage to an awesome series in my opinion.
