The development of Alien Dome by OnGames Studio began with a distaste for commercial design work, a penchant for unique animation, and a long seated love for video games. Accessibility in the gaming development world has opened up a new path for artists in search of a new medium and has, in turn, created a new bastion of creativity for both designers and developers. The heart of Alien Dome is a combination of both: an outlet for unique art design, and a place for players to experience the best of creative game mechanics.
A Growing Universe of Lore, Adventure, and PvP Fighting
Inspired by Mega Man Battle Network
What is Alien Dome?
Alien Dome has you select a character to strategically battle against other players and friends within a 6x3 grid. Select, Attack, Defend, & Taunt. 1v1s and Tournaments will be held between friends and larger regions. Two player zones and a center shared zone make up the arena. Simple colored backgrounds allow for the characters and their beautiful moves to be the prominent visuals on screen.
Also a Platformer
A platformer will be included as part of the game to introduce each character's background that leads them up to the fighting competition. Game mechanics for battles, however, will take place in the world, not on the grid.
Who are the Fighters?
Five potential characters have been created that may or may not make it into the final game. Each character will have attacks, defenses, and taunts that match their specific archetype. Upon release, the game will have finalized characters and more will be added over time in updates.

He knew that he must program Lucky, his robo dog creation, and best friend, to have loyalty only up to the end of his life. Lucky could then escape the planet to live his own life outside of Simon's. He could bark, dig, and fly around as he pleased.
