More new enemies

For the next update, I'd like to make, at least, 4 more new enemies. This is one of them:
Do you have any opinions about it?

PS. As you can see, those last days I'm having a lot of free time to spend with my game.
^_^

PS. Does the ant look better now?


PS: Taking a deep look at Hruma's guide to ants y decided to redo the legs of the ant. I mean, in the previous model its legs look like spider legs. I think I've improved its look. Do you agree?



I've change the pattern of color for the ant. I'll probably use the darker one (right side).

  1. In nature, ants have an interesting feature: the dying, they emit a chemical signal, and soon half anthill rushes to the offender.
    Ie, hurt an ant - you will have to deal with the hundreds.

    The idea is to an ant, being wounded, reported by other ants Beth location, after which they would have rushed at her.

    Should test this feature; can be fun.

    1. So that's why you smell something foul when you squish the bastards in your home?

    2. It's basically a klaxon in odor form.

    3. This ant will have a swam attack, but the little ants will attack by different flanks. Some kind of coordinated attack.

  2. this black betty (balam balam) will be the new default skin or something? or u ll keep this skin until someone remember the song?

  3. I don't have any problems it looks good. Maybe some color variety? Red, black, brown, etc.
    Also tell me about your new little tool. I'm interested in that thing.

    1. It's a graphical tablet you use to draw:

      (That's one of the expensive ones, hehehe)

      About ants, all my live I've seen them in two colours: black and red. So, I pictured what I know.

  4. I loved ants as a kid, so I'll point out a couple of things.

    Here's a quick reference picture:
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a6/Meat_eater_ant_feeding_on_honey02.jpg

    Firstly and most important, the ant seems a bit too, flat-coloured, ants usually have a black bottom, with the body being a red, green, brown, black or any other colour similar to that, and then a head of the same colouration or black.

    The head is a bit too round, they are usually more of a blend between a triangle and an oval. How you can achieve a similar shape, I have no idea. Also, the head's shape tends to mold into the ant's mandible.

    Some ants vary greatly in how their bottom section is shaped or attached, some are short and fat, others are long and skinny, some have a thick section attaching them to their body, others have a thin part attaching to their body (like the ant in the URL above). Because of how your ant is shaped currently, try having a go at making an ant with a longer bottom, you might like it better.

    The legs, I like how your model has the two sections of body, but ants usually have a set of legs attached to the front part (like the ant in the URL). The legs also feel(?) like they're just a tiny bit on the thick side.

    I'm pedantic, I know. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks for your guide! I'll use it to improve my ant.

  5. Sweet little ant :)
    You could also add an ant queen that produces more and more ants and which is located inside a large anthill-dungeon.
    Some funny quest might include an old humanoid Anteater who asks you to bring him some ant-meat.
    As a reward he could show Beth what he is able to do with his tongue ;-)

  7. Here some ideas;

    1) Beaks, stings and mandibles? Ants attack and defend themselves by biting and, in many species, by stinging, often injecting or spraying chemicals such as formic acid.

    2) I am not sure if this ant can be seen if the background is too dark. If you know what I mean. Here is also a scheme of an ant; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ant#mediaviewer/File:Scheme_ant_worker_anatomy-en.svg

    3) Ants have the ability to solve complex problems. Maybe they'll anticipate to the certain weakness and strengths of Betty.

    4) Caste? Colonies exists out; sterile, wingless females forming castes of "workers", "soldiers", or other specialized groups. Nearly all ant colonies also have some fertile males called "drones" and one or more fertile females called "queens".

    5) Light? Are there any light sources in the tunnels or does Betty needs a torch?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Did I really called her Betty? Ooooooooops.

      6) Spraying acid; Maybe it has a certain effect on clothes or Beth.

      7) No view of her butt?

      8) Organised attacks? One attacks Beth from behind while others distract her. Or was this already thought of in previous posts and all?

      9) Entrance? Maybe it is not safe to just climb in, thus she need climbing equipment to get in there.

      10) Ant/ant-eater trader?

      11) Crawling? Are those tunnels big enough for Beth to stand up and/or walk?

      12) Queen gives quest(s)

      Delete
    2. The'll use an organised attack.
      :)

      And I like the torch idea.

      Good ant anatomy guide.
      :)

      Delete
  8. I thought her name was Beth...

    So far so good, I might make the ant a little more light in color. At least against that darker background it's hard to see.

  11. Perhaps if you fight the queen ant and you lose it might be egg implantation..and on your second time going through the anthill you meet a few smaller weaker ants.

  12. The ant looks mutch better now :) hope you add some H scene for it :)
    too mutch "game over" in the game yet :D btw i cant wait to start test the Ant :)
    PS:maybe you can draw a sting...

    1. I'm not interested into doing H-scene with this enemy.

      Delete
    2. Since you seem to have decided against bug-fucking, I thought I'd ask - are there any other conventions and fetishes you've ruled out for this project, either decisively or tentatively?

      Delete
    3. - I'll add impregnation as game over.
      - No guro or vore.
      - Probably not inflation, small humanoids or egg laying.
      - Maybe lolicon (with young Beth)
      - Almost sure furry.
      - For sure gangbang, futanari and bukkake.

      Delete
    4. That's pretty understandable. Some of those fetishes involve the sort of damage that an adventurer doesn't just bounce back from.

      Delete
  13. Me again. The new ant looks awesome, but that red eye looks weird =P

    In my opinion, all it needs now to be perfect is a slight change in it's colouration laterally.

    Can't wait to see this new enemy in action!

    ReplyDelete
  14. It got real improved by time but I must add one detail with rat,roach,bear and this you got your 4th brown monster and it does start to get boring at some point(since we already see rats more than any other creature in game) I would recommend to just repaint a few versions of the monsters and make them be created randomly in game so even same creatres might have chance to look different.As more monster you make this small trick will make game much much colorful real good job you got here good luck

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm open to suggestions for color patterns for the ant, but as far as I've seen in my life, they are between red (like red wolf) and dark grey. This ant is not really brown, it's mostly dark red.

      I want to make slight differences in enemies. I'll try to make human enemies' faces randomly different.

      Delete
    2. Well, considering that ants are social creatures and have a group of set roles for each kind it might not be a bad idea to vary the colors if you plan to do different stats for each ant.

      This is a game, so if we're meeting an ant with higher attack and defense then it's got an army hat on. If it's a worker ant? Give it an orange vest. Queen ant? ...not any good ideas there. Point being if you're planning to make different ants, make sure there's a way to tell the difference; that and since it's a game...it isn't like the ants "have" to be realistic. I can't really think of any real instances where a slime or wolf raped someone...just saying.

      Overall? That looks WAY better. Very good Hnarly. :)

      Delete
    3. Well Nature surely loves variation :) By some short search I found green and yellow ants and even purple ones(don't worry I checked their info to make sure they exist and not just photoshopped :D) here are some examples for you http://velvetescape.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/oecsma10.jpg

      Beyond that you can create differences by making overall size of spawns random between the numbers you want so they wont all be as big and b creating a few set of legs for ants(shorter legs,longer legs,shorter legs with some fur,longer legs with some fur etc) same for the length of the antennas.

      As an art student I really admire your will to study true forms of nature hnarly I will give you that.And you do make promising progress overall.But when you start to feel satisfied about the anatomical correction of your drawing you can start to add some fantasy elements to them.It is a game after all let your imagination run wild :) good luck over your project you are doing well.(I am not too satisfied with the look of beth tough your skills of anatomical searching Improved way further since you drew her but that is a subject of another time and If I see you start to work on that I will try to give my best advises)

      Delete
    4. Wow, I love those ants! I've tried a purple color, and it looks great, I think.

      About Beth, if I started again, I'd probably do a couple of things better. But it's done, and the cost in time of redoing would be huge.

      Delete
  15. when your done with the ants will the progression bar go up ?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well I noticed something more to add: Changing the legs surely had a good affect but If you look into to guide you shared or just look at a picture of an ant you will see the last set of legs are actually "spider legs" as you refer to shape.(example :http://jonlieffmd.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Ant-individual-.jpg or the lovely purple meat ant if you prefer http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a6/Meat_eater_ant_feeding_on_honey02.jpg)
    I think changing that will improve it even better.

  20. what are the controls to start sex the controllre for controlls isnt any help to say what buttons do what i found out about inventory was w but dont know how to start sex not really a sex realm if it doesnt say how to start sex

    i thought getting hp to 0 from a enemy would do it but no just game over

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Your hp must hit 0 from certain enemies. In the cave there is a off color and differently shaped slime die from it and 1 will be triggered. If you have enough seduction you can get the shop keep elf to do 1 as well. If your hp hits 0 from a red wolf that triggers 1 as well. die from rats enough and a gnome will trigger 2.

      -pmt

      Delete
    2. - Getting your HP to 0 triggers H-events from some enemies (but not all of them, such as the slime boss, rats or red wolf).
      - You can start H-events with some NPCs pressing the 'A' key close to them, but they may need some requeriments (such as high seduction for the elven trader).

  24. Question about weapons - do you plan to give weapons the ability to break the attack power "cap"? From what I played, it seems like they can never actually do more damage than a full-strength kick.

    You mentioned, earlier, that some enemies won't flinch from unarmed attacks and we'll need weapons to fight them safely. Is that going to be the main benefit of being armed?

    ReplyDelete

    1. dagger is incredibly useless but axe is pretty usefull(It cut a little bit off from the range but it gives nice damage)

      Delete
    2. See, from what I remember, the axe only actually did more damage if the "attack" stat you build by landing hits isn't already maxed for Beth's level.

      As it stands, there's this weird, but somewhat enjoyable "blades are for witches, real warriors need only their bodies" thing going on.

    3. In the version I'm working, halberd is the only weapong able to kill the bear, hehehe.

      Delete
    4. So... what purpose does the dagger really serve?

      Delete
    5. I suppose if the enemy doesn't fly away when struck, but does flinch, the dagger could be used to maneuver them against a wall and safely chain-shiv them to death. That's all I've got. Maybe in a (much) later version it can be given a critical hit chance?

      Delete
    6. I didn't make the knife as an awesome weapon. I did it fast but with low damage and range.
      But that is no reason to discard it. Maybe in a future someone will discover a way to make it more useful...
      I mean, I want to make an open combat system with a lot of combinations between weapons and runes, so players could create their own combos, like fast hit and teleporting... etc.

  25. Bear kills the player before he will approach within striking distance, even if he is armed with a halberd.
