Fission Seed - 0.1
A story driven, action adventure shooter. Explore a large city eliminating enemy agents and performing missions. Rely on force or stealth, it's your choice. Make use of shadows and cover to sneak up on your enemy or come out all guns blazing.
This is the first release of the game.
It is mainly a preview release with a few missions to flush out bugs and gameplay issues.
There's a pygame bug in 1.9.1 that causes the lighting effects to fail under certain conditions and I'm interested to know if you see this so let me know. You will notice that some/all characters appear very bright!
Requires: networkx and numpy

I don't like the controls, they are hard to get used to. I'd prefer that up means up, and down means down. I also think wasd should be possible to use instead of arrow keys.
The guy should be able to walk faster, and the grass shouldn't slow him down nearly as much, it is just irritating that he walks so slowly.
It took some time to understand how to talk to people, at first I was always pressing space and I didn't understand what to do.

Yes, you are right! I didn't implement a stealth kill mechanic yet but that is a good idea. I'll give it a try.
As you spotted, enemies will notice you (I imagined that they would be hearing you!) even from behind if you get close enough. The stealth part currently is limited to the fact that they the darkness limits how much they can see. You can stand in a dark alley and shoot or approach someone keeping to the shadows.
