STORY

                                                       
Commander Moss and his crew are back with another dangerous mission.

                                 
An Omega 1 prisoner transport ship carrying two prisoners sent a distress beacon before disappearing from radar.

                       
President Gooman decides to send Slug, Scar, Commander Moss and his new human assistant, Head, to the ships last known coordinates.

                 
Moss and his crew must find this ship and rescue any survivors. Once there, Commander Moss soon realizes, there is more going on than a disabled ship.

                                                   
A new life form emerges and puts everyone on board the ship at risk.






Yes, that's a Venus fly trap in the corner.

I was somehow privy to the upcoming release of this game and had to do a serious sit-on-my-hands maneuver to not spill the beans...

LOVED the first two games...two of the best ever to make it over the trenches and into public domain in AGS!!!

I cannot wait for the thrid chapter!!!

Thank you everyone. A little support goes a long way in the self motivation department.

It had better be 3!

I've been waiting for this thread since you sent me the test version a few weeks ago. I'm speechless :X This is really awesome NickyNyce!

The backgrounds are amazing! Still, the game itself is much more beautiful, please try to post a video or a gif of the ship moving through the asteroids because V3 is even much more better than what the screenies are showing! :-D

Really love the pattern background in the 6th screenshot.
Man, Keep up with what you're doing 8-)

Woah! I missed this thread somehow...  :sealed:
I, personally, really liked the previous Visitor games... There is something, really... attractive about them.
I like the plot of this one, you always seem to have good story ideas.
Good luck on the project! 

Also, a bit off topic, but happy birthday! :D

It's the visitors themselves. These whimsical, sociophatic aliens with no regard for puny humans -- gotta love 'em ;)

Last and final update before freeware release!

The game is fully playable from start to finish. I'm currently going over the final dialog changes, BG touch-ups, added character sprites, and I'm still trying to squeeze a puzzle or two into the mix. I'm also going to try and add some type of achievement system, and easter eggs. This game plays more like an interactive story with puzzles, then a full blown adventure game. This game has taken me about 2 years to complete. Not so much because it's so long, but because I just didn't have the time to make it. I'm sad to say, this is probably my last game of this length. The game did not turn out exactly like I had hoped, but neither did life.

The music is incredible. Forum member, Problem, has done an outstanding job. It's the exact vibe I was looking for, and everyone is sure to enjoy it. Hopefully the game itself can compete with his work.

There is also over 250 sounds, and other ambient music that I found and added. I'm currently looking for a small batch of TESTERS to go over the game and help me bring an enjoyable experience to anyone who does play it. You can PM me if you are interested.

I would also love to release all the character sprites, so that if anyone wishes to continue on with the series, or wants to use them for any reason, they may. Thanks to everyone that has already helped me with early beta testing and my silly scripting questions too.

@AprilSkies...Your work around here is just about second to none. You make me nervous. Thank you for your interest.

@KodiakBehr...I would love to have you. Thank you for your help already. Playing your games gave me great inspiration.

Once again, I can't say enough about the music. I've been testing and playing this game for what feels like forever, and I still love every track that Problem made for me.

EDIT: Also, if anyone wants to place a picture of their upcoming game on a TV that's in the game, PM me. I would love to show some up and coming games.
