STRETCH GOALS

  • behavior
    • more variety of behaviors in general
    • giving aliens more plants makes them more friendly
    • variety in movement types (like tadpoles, move in pulses)
    • different plants grow, and aliens like different types of plants
    • aliens react to other flocks
    • communication
      • aliens talk at you
      • their speech is decoded when you become friends
      • they tell you about their planet, their culture, their lives
    • colonial expansion (almost done, but very buggy)
      • when you give an alien a gift, they have the ability to colonize an empty planet
        • maybe one (random) alien becomes a 'queen' and explores nearby planets
      • that planet then becomes a homeworld for a new batch of aliens
    • some aliens are lone wanderers
    • some aliens glitch-phase in and out of existence
      • if you give them a gift, they drop something cool
  • gameplay
    • you can leave beacons to fast-travel back to that sector
    • you get a map or something at the end, showing planets you visited and aliens you befriended
    • keyboard controls
  • better performance
  • procedural soundtrack and/or sound effects
