    From Earth is a science fiction first person game where the player, taking on the role of Zenaida Liu, lands on an alien planet that has never been visited by humans before. Pursued by the planet's government, she must find her partner Anthony Yaremov and continue her mission. With little resources of their own, they have to rely on alien technology and their communication skills to survive.




    The player has two options. Either she can fight her way through, attracting the ire of the alien government, or she can try and seek a peaceful resolution. Whichever path she chooses, she will have to learn as much as possible about the alien technology and its creators if she wants to survive.

    There has been a big focus on developing the interaction system, which allows the player to communicate with the aliens, including learning their language. The development team has spent a lot of time working on the alien AI, trying to make them feel alive. The player also has climbing abilities, which can come in useful if the player needs to run away from a fight. But if the player no longer feels like running away, she can always fight back.

    From Earth is being developed by a very small team of dedicated and long time Source Engine modders.

    Basic features:
    • Examine alien technology and observe the aliens on how to use it
    • Learn the alien language in order to communicate with them
    • First person melee combat system
    • Climbing / Parkour system
    • Intelligent AI that can work both as an ally and as an enemy
    • Puzzles based on communicating with the aliens and understanding alien technology

    Additional information:
    • It's being developed as a free game, but we might go indie depending on the situation
    • The game is developed for PC, but depending how easy games are to port to Mac and Linux with Source we will do that later
    • Those who don't like fighting, can avoid it completely
