Share Collapse

Author Comments

Play as a hungry monster who just wants to survive, but with humans slowly encroaching upon it's territory and resources coming in short supply, this monster will need to adapt to a new diet.

Planned for future release:

- Smash attack (Jump + Down)
- Run
- Stealth (hide in the bushes)
- Improving the human expansion
- Human hunters (they will advance into your territory to hunt you)
- Terrain will change to reflect the growth of humans
- Making the level bigger (or add different levels)

Gave me a boner

Amazing potentian and kudos for completion on such short notice. Your planned features sound like a recipe for a very, very successful game. It isn't too much right now, but for the potential and for the uniqueness, 5 stars.

this is visually appealing in certain ways and the music is alright, but it's incredibly 1 dimensional. there's no challenge, no real story, and no dynamic gameplay. im not even sure if there is a point other than keeping my hunger bar up, which basically gives me no motive to continue playing the game especially when the combat is just a grind. this could be really good if there were objectives, larger levels, different types of enemies, etc... right now it just seems to be more of a vignette than anything. i wont give it too bad of a rating because i think it has potential to be a good game, but it really seems like you could be doing a lot more with it even if all you did was to make the area larger.

Nice for a game jam! Do you plan to continue this project? This could get into a higher level of amazingness. :)

I was planning to expand upon the idea, looking at peoples suggestions I'm considering adding the following:

- Smash attack (Jump + Down)
- Run
- Stealth (hide in the bushes)
- Improving the human expansion
- Human hunters (they will advance into your territory to hunt you)
- Terrain will change to reflect the growth of humans
- Making the level bigger (or add different levels)

This game has GREAT potential, the reason I voted 3.5 stars is because it needs more levels ( If I'm not mistaking there is only one? ) and also a running option to move faster. If those two things are added this is a good enough game to be on newgrounds and possibly an Indie game for consoles.

:) great job man.

valicitor responds:

Thanks man, I will defiantly consider a running button... as far as multiple levels go, I may make the current level bigger and have a human city level which the monster can get to by jumping over the wall.
