Creature skills: KILL!!!

September 17, 2010

Yes, the creature can kill… what did you expect?

Usually it’s not necessary to kill the enemies… also, it’s impossible if you have no fire to burn them…
But everything changes when you find your HORNS!!
Then you can kill them all like a blue killing machine! yeah!

That’s when you will unleash your fury upon your enemieeees!!

(Sorry for the crappy framerate… it will look better in the game. AHÁ!)


Creature skills: Survival instinct

September 10, 2010

Well, actually this is not a creature’s skill… but the video is pretty cool, so I think you will forgive me.

You won’t be able to rely on the creature itself when fire chases you!! You will need your own survival instinct and to be fast as hell, to get away from a burning jungle!

You can try if you want, but you simply…

can’t stop the fire.

Creature skills: The awesome awesome tongue!

September 3, 2010

The tongue, this is just another of the amazing actions the creature can do.

It can do lots of stuff depending where you aim… There are lots of possibilities, and we don’t want to show them all yet, but we are going to let you see the most basic ones (the ones in the trailer):

Hang from ceilings and pull objects!

But there are more possibilities… if you follow this blog maybe you have heard about buzzers and how can you use the tongue with them! But, really, if you want my advice:

Shoot it everywhere, everywhere you can! On ceilings, platforms, boxes…

The tongue can really do everything, except liking (that would be disgusting…)

Tip: don’t try to use it if you have eaten something spicy. It can be dangerous.

Creature skills: Wall walking

August 27, 2010

The wall walking is a very useful skill if you are trying to reach high places.

The creature can walk on sticky surfaces no matter if they are grounds, walls or ceilings.

But it has some limitations, is easy to fall down if you do strange things such as change your form, use your horns, jump… if you want to stay stuck, I beg you: just walk! (you may find an uncomfortable landing on spikes if you don’t follow this advice).

Anyway… you will only be able to stick on these strange green mucus… but who or what has spread them along the cave? It’s difficult to know, but maybe you can find the answer inside the cave…

Creature skills: Horns

August 19, 2010

This is the first post talking about the creature skills!

Some of you may have heard about them (maybe with an awesome song in an outstanding trailer), but I’m going to explain some of them here, in the blog.

And today we are going to talk about Horns!!

The horns are the creature’s only natural weapon. They are extremely unbreakable and can be used for opening cans, scratch cars, pierce foes, smash through walls, and even stick yourself to ceilings and floors like a dart!

This part of the body has brought lots of game design troubles. We wanted the horns to work with just one button (as the other parts). You can unsheathe them with shift, but… how can you destroy something that is right under you? We thought about using a special attack, some kind of megaton jump, like mario… but the idea didn’t like us so much, because we wanted to keep controls as simple as possible.

Finally, we have the solution: the horns will follow your movement while you are jumping. They will aim high while you rise and they will aim down while you fall.

Tips for using your horns properly:

  • You will stick to any ceiling or roof that you touch while you use your horns and you will remain there until you sheathe them. Remaining sticked can sometimes be beneficial… or extremely mortal!!!!
  • Any enemy that touches the horns with a minimum speed will be killed instantly. The horns are the only way to kill some enemies, but sometimes is better to keep them alive!
  • Breaking rocks can be fun… everybody enjoys destruction! But don’t be fool, the broken stones are irreparable, and they can be useful as a bridge if you don’t break them.

As you can see, is not easy to determine where you should use your powerful horns or where they shouldn’t. It’s a thinking game, so remember:

To use your horns, you’ll have to use your head.
