A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Alien Occupation!

This is a game for the Apollo GC Jam 2019. It was meant to be less than 32k but I failed. That being said it was great fun building a full game in Qbasic, a program I haven't touched since I was about 12 years old. 

The game is a bit of a Alien + Five Nights at Freddy's mashup, but in the DOS world. The entire crew of a space station has been wiped out by an aggressive alien species. Hardeep Fisher is the only survivor and it's your job to lead her to safety.

Alien Occupation is a game about balancing power usage and avoiding the alien creature, trying to find the correct items in order to escape via the emergency escape pods.
