This is a sci-fi, 2D, keyboard-controlled shooter in style of Robotron, but with modern features like voiceovers and scripted sequences. The gameplay is frantic and bloody, and each weapon is good for a specific situation.

NOTE: the game is story-driven and DOES NOT FEATURE RANDOM LEVELS.

You play as Dr. Green, expelled from medical practice after an unfortunate incident. Mysteriously freed from cryoprison on colony Sarang-2, he discovers that there are very few humans left in the world.

Driven by the desire to find his estranged daughter and haunted by flashback to the incident that ruined his life, he has to make his way across the devastated surface of the planet, and overcome unspeakable challenges.

I am really enjoying this game. I need to transfer a saved game between PCs, how can this be done?

Copy the folder C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\AppData\Local\DEADCOLONY to another computer.

Don't forget that [YOUR USERNAME] is whatever username you use on your old computer, and it may be different from username on your new computer.

This is a little late, but I played this game recently (learn of it from The Free Bundle), and it's really good. I was surprised to discover it had the same dev as Shelter (http://www.desura.com/games/compound/), which I had heard about previously on RPG Codex.

Dead Colony is not my usual genre, but it's a lot of fun. I got used to the keyboard-based controls quickly enough, and the game proceeds at a high pace. I did a first impressions video on it: Youtube.com

Also, the Second Variety Games twitter seems really dead. Do they have a new one or something? I'd like to follow.

Enjoying the demo. I'd like to request keybinds for next/previous weapon. choosing by number is kind of a pain for me.

This is likely to be in the next patch.

Correction: it didn't make it to this patch. Like Doom, the game relies on situation-appropriate hotkey weapon switching; if you take your time to cycle between weapons, you're screwed.

It woul be nice to have a lot of tiles styles to switch to. The ASCII is a good idea, but I'd like to have several realistic ones. Will it be modable?

All the graphics files are exposed and can be modified. Not sure about supporting an "official" mod structure, however.

I think an official mod structure certainly wouldn't hurt anything ;).
