Post news RSS Better Laser Halberd Zombies

I improve everyone's favorite enemy - the laser halberd zombie. Includes screenshots + 2 speed model videos!

Posted by on

A while ago I added ZOMBIES WITH LASER HALBERDS! They were meant for a very dark level, and I made them VERY cheaply so that I could make hordes of them without slowing down the game.

Recently, I decided to add them throughout the game, and change their mechanics. They'll still probably come in small hordes, but their moveset is more interesting to fight 1-on-1 now. This is also when I gave them laser halberds, because why not?? :D

They looked TERRIBLE in the light, so I spent ~7 hours revamping them this weekend. I'm not done yet, but this is what I have so far.

They're still not done yet!


You may notice that I brought the laser-cloak-skirt-thing back. I found a better way to do the animation, and it lights up according to which parts of it move. It looks way better in motion.

Graceful zombie spin:

Such beauty:

Green zombie blood:

Have a good week!!
