I have to say, it looks like minecraft.

More details as to why your game is 'new' are required.

Furthermore, if your gameplay and such is the same as minecraft, be very, very wary. Valve have taken an interest in minecraft.

And valve get nasty in court over small things.

You guys are appealing with all the shinys...

But i was always put off by the fact that zombies were pretty much invincible when i played...

Trapped in a car with just the one zombie, had two shotguns and a pistol. Used em all up into its head, and it still killed me. That was the day i put it down and i havent picked it up again...

I dont know about game mechanics and such, but quite frankly, zombies die when you shoot them in the head. When zombies survive this, with shotguns, theres no point in it at all.

They removed it because it was abused by their playtesters.

Its just like the subway: Beta it was unlit except from the obvious things - Light at the stations that flickered on and off, and light from the overturned trams. Between those areas was pitch black and you had to use a flashlight.

Testers complained it was too hard, not scary, frustrating, so all ambient lighting was removed, as was the AI controlling lighting.

If you look at earlier notes about L4D, much thats now 'new' for 2, is actually removed things from 1. The lighting control, the path changing...etc.

Keep it up guys. It will be awesome to play the scary version. Arcade is only fun the first time through.

Remember, its not Valve that has done anything wrong.

It was the L4D team who acted alone, theres even an interview where gabe stated he had said he didn't think they should be going with L4D2 so early.

Really, the L4D team suck, but valve themselves are epic. I mean come on,they allowed pc users to pre-load borderlands (they didnt have to, valve usually only lets pre-load on their own titles)

The beta charecters, weapons and the whole atmosphere was vastly better than the **** we got in the end. L4D was fun, it was great for a week, but it just was NOT the scary game i wanted.

L4D beta was scary. Areas lit only by your flashlight? Fantastic. Stupid testers taking the good stuff out

Constructive criticism on the vid:

the guys standing around during all the gunfire and heli going down... having no emotion at all, that just wouldn't happen. Give em some cowering and screaming ;), make them point and go like 'holy ****!' 'oh no..' etc. Try to give the soldiers distinct personalities, you should try to get about 4/5 alternating death screams, etc and mix and match. The same thing over and over will grate on peoples nerves.

The heli going down voice-over is too slow, heli is down before the comm is over. Speed it up a bit or slow down the heli's descent.

Some better dialogue would be something like this:

Command: Sgt X, get on the chopper and prepare for Evac.

Pilot: "Sgt were taking heavy fire here, get your *** in gear-HOLY **** *explosion* Blackhawk 219, Mayday Mayday, we are going down, we are going down...JESUS CHRI-" *Impact*

Commline: "Blackhawk 219 is down, we are unable to evac. Sgt, your on foot from here on in, we cannot risk another bird. Make your way to x location and regroup with the Major"

Just an idea.

Artillery: Need some ground craters, put them into the map or something.

Everything else was fantastically done.

This is very amazing work. The graphics were intense, it actually looks and feels like a warzone not just a generic 'one soldier wins the day' thing. Keep it up.

I really hope renegade x dont win.
In fact i think its pretty much impossible for them to win, recreation mods cannot win a cash prize...It would be unfair on the other mod teams.

I mean, if renegade x win, they cant exactly go retail with their game. (They could pay EA the money and hope EA say yes...LOL)

I hope haunted win, it was the most fantastic experiance i have had in survival horror for a long time. I loved it.

Looks good...as a mod ,id download it, but as a game, sorry to say i wouldnt buy it, my main concern is the repetitiveness of such games.

I get bored with this type of game fairly quickly....reliance on mods is'nt a good thing.

Are there plans for co-op? What exactly do you plan to do to avoid repetitiveness.

If you could get out of your car GTA style with co-op freinds and search buildings, that'd be pretty epic.

Kitsunami Sep 10 2009, 5:35am replied:

you must have hada sucky pc.

Graphics were decent on my old laptop, plus the gameplay was pretty good. The only problem was because they released too early they didnt balance classes out...

Engineer and Gunner pretty much was 'easy mode'

Mage was 'normal' and 'swordspeople' were the hard mode for the game.

Someday it will get rev-engi'd to be LAN, the only problem with it currently is that they took out all LAN code in the early stages so a team would have to mod/build it on. I think its better for them to just rev-engy the software to host a server and get online play again. Easier.

immensely promising mod.

I look forward to the co-op aspect, and will be downloading your new build when its available.

Quite honestly, i find the whole concept to be unique in the fact that most tower defence games have you in a RTS view, and the precious few that dont, never allow you to actually get down into the pit and fight.

I believe you guys should focus on those aspects, theyre your winning points in my opinion.

I find the idea that if our towers are failing we can get down there and shoot to change the tide, very appealing.

Hope you guys add things to make it difficult at later stages though, being able to shoot shouldnt mean insta-win all the time.

Im not paying 50 dollers for '5' new campaigns.

Melee and all that other ****?

Anyone wonder why they refuse to release the modding tools yet? Because, some modder could...gasp, create melee weaponry !

and then theyre in trouble.

I bet theres already a mod for L4D1 that enables melee weaponry.

Personally, im ashamed that Turtlerock (not valve. Its not Valve the boycotts supposed to be about. Chet even stated that he didnt think the l4d team were doing the right thing) went down the path of money grabbing. They even admitted to starting work on 2 immediately after releasing 1.

Everything that is in number two, could be put into one as an update. Campaigns? = Maps.
Melee? = Source code update + models/animations.
Incinerary bullets? = Already in the game. Hollow point is also in the game, Incinerary are not coded in, but Hollow point are useable.
New zombie models? = Update.

I am saddened by TR's mess and hope Valve will clean it up. Im also saddened by the boycott group (which i am not a part of) who are attacking Valve, when its not valve, but the studio working on L4D, who chose to drop 1 for 2.

Kitsunami Aug 26 2009, 8:50am replied:

the new 'game' is JUST an update.

Read before you comment...everything in the new game was supposed to be in L4D1. EVERY thing.

And guess what, these 'new' ammo types?

They were already in the game. The code for laser sights, for a rpg style perk system, for hollow point ammo (explosive rounds) and the likes is still there, and you can use it and play it.

They took out the dynamic pathing, the weather effects. They lowered the AI.

effectively, L4D was a demo, and L4D2 is what they promised.

Thus, boycott and anger.

L4D2 is effectively, a reskin with new maps and melee weaponry added. Thats all.

the **** about how they cant update l4d1 with stuff is bull, unless they have updated the engine, its still source, and as any modder can tell you, Source engine stuff can be ported from one game to another.

Fantastic mod ! Fantastic !

Well done.

I would like to see a female demon hunter charecter, and perhaps some health for the multiplayer survival mode, as its a pain to constantly be low health all the time and nobody dies to steal health through ressurections.

I recccomend you guys look into going retail with a studio. Perhaps tripwire? this mod has serious potential. If this was a demo, id buy it ;)

Hello there!

What an interesting concept! Unfortunately, the copies are all already gone.

Well, I was wondering If I might be able to get a press copy for review/commentary purposes?

I write for the website End Gamers, and I find the idea of interactive movie fiction to be incredibly encouraging. One of the best star trek games I ever played was star trek borg, a fully interactive movie which was great fun.

Thanks for your time!

you would be correct, the terminology i should have used is action or adventure.

Hack and slash is a bit beyond and too harsh a criticism, i apologise. A hack and slash is a bland/dull repeated clicking to swing the sword over and over with no real variety, whereas your game has that variety.

Sorry :]

Kitsunami Dec 11 2009, 12:57pm says:

it looks pretty interesting, i like the combat system, but, it has to be said, the hud is simplistic, and it looks to be nothing more than a hack/slash.

What are your unique elements? I don't see any. The combat sys in itself is not unique, I can name several games that use it. (Zombie shooter 1/2, for instance, move iwth keyboard, mouse moves the gun/melee weaponry, same with dead frontier.)

Maybe its just the video and screenshots, and if so i apologise, you should update them to reflect the product, but from the video alone i wouldn't download the demo.

Its...just too little for 20$. This title seems like it would fit more onto the DS/Handheld systems rather than pc, and only one download for the 20$?

However, congratulations on completing your first game. Good milestone, i think the graphics are cute and it does look interesting in itself ,but the quests seem repetitive. Kill x 12 times. Repeat.

I think it would benefit from a story. And again, if its not in the video, i apologise but you should have an advertising video that shows all your features, not development footage.

Best of luck in the future, i reccomend you look into creating a indepth story-based game with the same combat system and graphics, it would be cool to see another action/rpg/story game on the market, long time since i saw them. (Turn based or multi-char seems to be the current thing)

Its a good start though. Maybe for 15 or 10$ id've given it a shot :]
