(Appologies up front if this is hard to follow, I'm pretty tired and was made redundant today, so I'm probably not as focused as i could be...) I'm quite interested in doing a game similar to Alien Shooter, but hopefully more story based (the plan is to do for alien shooter what Half-Life did for quake). My concern, however, is that there simply isn't a market for such a game. I'm led to believe that the content is too violent for the casual market, but reading some of the user reviews posted on various download sites suggests otherwise. I suspect that not being one of the major genres (FPS, RTS, RPG etc) it would probably fall under the radar of the more 'hardcore' gamers. But yet, Alien Shooter appears to be wildly popular, boasting hundreds of thousands of downloads on several of the sites it appears on. So who's downloading all the copies of the demo? Casual players who've got a taste for blood? Hardcore players looking for something new (non-FPS etc)? Or some group of people in between? So to summize, incase that made no sense: Would an Alien shooter clone sell? Why/Why Not? -B- For what it's worth, my current Alien Shooter clone is running on the GPL'd Quake III Engine and only uses the mouse+LMB to fire and RMB to walk/interact with the world.
