Overgrowth takes place in the savage world of Lugaru where rabbits, wolves and other animals are forced to use paws, claws and medieval weaponry to engage each other in battle. Combining 3rd person adventure platforming with intricate melee combat, Overgrowth achieves a unique feel. Overgrowth also benefits from Wolfire's brand new Phoenix Engine which has been built from the ground up to allow the use of cutting edge graphics, animation, and physics. Add to these exciting features Overgrowth’s realistic artificial intelligence and streamlined control system and the result is an astoundingly immersive experience.

But... I love games where all enemys look the same... :'( So I feel like if they were clones. Now whenever I kill them I think they were unique and I killed a rabbid with family which just were working to get money for his childs D: I can't play this game anymore :'( - Just kidding, I do not care if I kill rabbids with familys *evil laughing*

9001 knockback force? Maybe you could implement different melee fighting sub-styles (of course, this would come later in development), similar to the different martial art styles in our world.
