The 1.0 version (Ludum Dare submission) is released! Check it out and tell me what you think about it!
"A 'Hunter, Gatherer, Whatever' Story"
A game for the Ludum Dare 28 (14 - 16 dec 2013)
About the game
Well, this game is basically a dogfight. You have the weapon (a boomerang at this moment, the idea is to have others) and the bulls have both the meat and the strenght.It was developed in about 12 - 16 hours. I didn't have much free time at this weekend, so it's a shame.
What's nice about it?Well, The one thing that drew my interest when I was wondering about the game was exactly the theme. The whole "You Only Got One" is interesting because in this game, part of the time you have the power, part of it you don't.If you play it for some time you'll notice the bulls become kinda hostile when you're unarmed. Yeah, they can notice you're vulnerable without the weapon in your hand. This makes you think again before throwing it. BUT the reward by killing the bulls is not only the points or the next level you can achieve by killing them. If you get hurt your only survival is tied to your strategy.I made to level 5, with about 25 meat. Can you beat it?
ControlsMenus - controlled by the arrows, ENTER and ESCAPE, just like most computional interfaces created by mankind.GameplayMovement - Arrow keys. Sideways in the cave, 8 directions in the open.Attack - SPACE Bar. It will throw the weapon IF it's in your hand. The boomerang MIGHT return to you if it doesn't bump into a rock or something.Running - SHIFT, you'll run faster so you can go grab the weapon ASAP or flee like a coward.ESC - Pause Menu.
FUTURE RELEASES:I'm planning on having more weapons (throwing spear / javelin, rocks, bow and ONE arrow) each one with its strenghts and weaknesses. All within the "YOGO" theme :)Music - I'm planning on that too.Scenery - The scenery is already random (you can tell by the bushes), but I'm planning on adding trees and Rocks, at least.
That's it. If you enjoy it please let me know!PS: You can make videos about this game at will. But please don't distribute the game claiming you made it. It isn't nice.
