This was the second version of my Alien "fan game." I released this a while back, but since I never made a Dream Makers post out of it, now's a good time to do that.
I don't claim that this is a great example of quality BYOND programming. It's mostly competent, with some hacky parts and a few genuine bugs. Helpful code comments are rare. The user interface leaves a lot to be desired, especially by 4.0 standards. And some of the code was written only to work around limitations that no longer exist in BYOND.
So, why do I think it's worthwhile to post here? A few reasons:
1) Bugs and clunky interface aside, it was a fun game.
2) It's a fairly large project and contains things that could be useful in other games. If you have the patience to sit down and spend a half-hour browsing through someone else's source code, you may get some ideas from it.
3) You are welcome to use the icons and other resources for your own purposes. (I got Gazoot's permission to include his jarring suspense music in this package, and I found the Moonlight Sonata on a site that claimed it was public domain.)
