** IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU PLAY THE GAME MORE THAN ONCE TO SEE EVERYTHING! (Due to the random nature of the level generation, you may miss some things if you only play it once! ** The Unknown is a procedurally generated horror game made by a one-man team (David Rico) in 48 hours for the Asylum Game Jam. Each playthrough is different and is only limited by the amount of content I could make in 48 hours, so I encourage you to play through it a few times to really see everything and get the full effect. It's meant to be very replayable. - Emphasis - Sound, replayability, gameplay, atmosphere. - Theme - The game is an exploration of the feeling of panic and hopelessness that comes from being lost, both mentally and physically. You must find a way to escape the labyrinthine depths of whatever hellish place you're in, but be careful... Fear is your worst enemy.
Here's another patch to The Unknown.
There’s one thing that was bugging me a lot about the game, and it’s the fact that the enemies and the game didn’t have enough dangers and was a bit too easy.As such I took a little time and added some extra danger mechanics to the game . You can now die without reaching a full fear meter from certain special events. The fear meter will still kill you if it gets filled as well.
I also took some time to add a couple new room variations and scares, as well as a 4 way junction… this should make the dungeon more confusing than ever, and will pretty much force you to use the tagging mechanic built into the game
By the way... if you like the game, why don't you vote for it and Rebirth for Indie of the year? It's free, so I'd love to get your support to keep me going!

Basically they are like my dog, except not purely motivated by treats and bodily functions.

So I want them circling you, sometimes running away, sometimes pouncing on you and pinning you, etc

Ok so relevant gamedev tweets. I have spent the last week or so working on making wolves "wolf-like".

In short: People are jerks. Some people are jerks while trying to pretend they are not jerks. Don't be a jerk. Jerks don't get pie.

Also if this lands me on some list, get in line. Been put into lists all my life due to where I was born and my ethnicity. Nothing new.

@MsMinotaur Hate those days. Don't worry you'll go to bed and wake up with the answers in your head tomorrow. You know how it goes!

@MsMinotaur Razer touchpad? Or you have angered a very particular kind of ghost who gives paper cuts at night while you sleep?

@MsMinotaur Funnily enough, I figured out my mouse was giving me papercuts a while back. Even better, it's a Razer mouse. No joke.
