Humans Must Answer "Space Combat Tactics" Devlog


Kiev, Ukraine - While the battle to get on to Steam via Greenlight wages on, a similar effort takes place among the stars. As a space pilot you'll need to employ the best weapons and tactics if you want to survive in Humans Must Answer. Luckily, there's a new developer log that outlines the basics of this sidescrolling shmup from Sumom Games.


Well it's about time! Pilot, you've got a lot to learn if you're going to survive out there. This ain't a lazy peck around the corn field! Space is serious stuff and you might die. Let's try to prevent that. Though don't look to me for survival tips and tricks, there's a video that will inform you of the basics for now. Once you've got them through your thick skull, then maybe we'll move on to the more advanced stuff. DO YOU READ ME?!

This so-called "Space Combat Tactics" development log outlines the two ammo types in Humans Must Answer, those being energy and matter. You'll be taken through which weapons correspond to which ammo type and how best to use each one. Moving swiftly on, you'll be guided through the use of turrets and the specials (slow motion, temporary shields and blast) so you can get the maximum score and get yourself out of rut.

Then comes the most important part of the training: the effective use of the support weapon. With this 'sphere of electronic love' you'll be able to wipe out biggest enemies you may come across without breaking a sweat. You'll also need to use the varying effects that different weapon combinations has to get past certain obstacles and even small puzzles scattered throughout the levels.

You play as the pilot on board a Scout ship called The Golden Eagle, which is manned by a crew of intelligent and dangerous chickens. After discovering the Solar System in which we humans reside, they attempt to establish contact but are surprised when the only answer is hostile.

So starts their explosive trip across the planets, during which they'll meet the peculiarities of this bizarre future and show no mercy to the fleets of humans and robots that dare stand in their way.

Humans Must Answer has an emphasis on evading dangers, hidden bonuses, epic boss fights and a deep upgrade and points system. Placing temporary turrets and experimenting with different weapons is a must to pass through the most dangerous planetary defences.

Humans Must Answer will be released in 2013 for Windows PCs.
