Cosmic Commando is a game in early stage of developement set in a space opera setting. You're a brave cosmic commando who fights forces of bloodthirsty syndicate ruled by mysterious Lady Raven. So far, the game focuses on tactical positioning. It is governed by simple rules, but gameplay is not too shallow. In release v0.2 Cosmic Commando became a fully structured game with a considerable degree of polish for such an early version. It features a nonstandard approach to advancement: to win, the player has to complete three preliminary missions first (in any sequence, refreshing to pristine status after each successful quest) before attempting to beat the final level, which has varying difficulty depending on player's decisions earlier (after each mission the player has the option to make the final level - and only it - easier. Forgoing this opportunity increases the player's final score).

Planned features:

  • optional action mode that adds real time pressure to turn based gaming (think Tetris)
  • character customization
  • cover-based shooting mechanics
