Readers may recall that I've written here and there about my real-time co-op game that was originally about running a restaurant but that I recently reskinned in a straight port to a game about alien phlebotomy. The short update is that changing the skin made the game so much more confusing to learn that I had to change the gameplay dynamics significantly to match the new skin. More on that in another post.
But more interestingly, a fellow designer, Kevin Privalle, graciously created an online implementation of the new game, Alien Phlebotomists, which can be played here.
If you'd like to try the game out, it helps to know the rules of the game: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DS50QM65tMSrb8aMwZVXJ4bJ...
There's a tutorial on the online module here:
And finally, I devised a solo mode variation for the game so you can play a reasonable facsimile of the full game even if you can't get three friends to play the game online with you!
Check it out if interested!
