Temple of the Lizard Men 4 - Music Patch RELEASED!

Post by Alando1 »

Hello everyone, welcome to the Temple of the Lizard Men 4 project thread!

I am proud to announce that the project is done and I'm really excited to share some details with all of you.






OFFICIAL TRAILER





My goal with TOTLM4 is to bring an invigorating experience to the player. I've decided to combine the action style gameplay of TOTLM2, and the atmospheric, detailed level design of TOTLM3. What this means is that you will be able to wield awesome weapons and take on adrenaline-fueled Classic DOOM style combat while navigating the breathe-taking, immersive environment around you. The levels will provide more exploration for the player and will be slightly less linear. TOTLM4 will also have some new gameplay features which will be discussed below. More information will be listed as the project progresses.

What will be included in TOTLM4 that is new:

- A weapon upgrade system
- A flashlight that can be activated/deactivated while still wielding your weapon
- Some new enemies to join the cast from TOTLM3
- A new soundtrack with awesome adventure style music
- Six player classes to choose from; each have their own story-line
- Some new items and power-ups
- Up to four player coop compatibility
- Higher quality voice acting (Hoping...)


What will not be included in TOTLM4:

- No more Duke Nukem-ish stuff (Maybe just a smidgen... mural textures will remain, though)
- The Shadow Serpent, Asudem, and Spectra will not be returning
- No major cut scenes (Only intermission narratives)


What Weapons will be included:

Slot 1: Fists & Knife
Slot 2: Enforcer / Double Enforcers (Double Enforcers replace the single one when you pick up another Enforcer)
Slot 3: Semi-Auto Shotgun / Double Barrel Shotgun
Slot 4: Assault Rifle / Minigun
Slot 5: Quad-Shot Rocket Launcher
Slot 6: Sniper Rifle
Slot 7: Dragon Sceptre
Slot 8: The Eye of the Serpent

What Items and Power-Ups will be included:

Personal Lantern
Invisibility Rune
Serpent Amulet
Berserker Rune
Invulnerability Amulet

I also want to thank all of those who have enjoyed my TOTLM series; your support is very much appreciated and it makes me very happy to see all of you enjoying my wads. I also would like to remind all of you that there are updated versions of TOTLM2 & 3 available if any of you are interested. It's mostly bug fixes; below are the links:

If I had known the old episodes were getting updates, I would have offered up the bugfix versions I did.

Do you have a changelog so I can know what needs to be updated in my bugfix revisions?

I was and I am a big fan of your projects Alando :) Just make sure to stay close to your style. The big thing about this was always the heavy influence of Unreal, the music, the look, the feeling. Stick to that and I will love the fourth part :D

My day just got a hell of a lot better once I saw this thread :D

Since you already have someone on the soundtrack, I could help out with the sound design for weapons, items, enemies, etc, if needed.

Glad to see that it'll be more like TotLM2! That one's my favorite of the series by far.
Alando, if you'd like someone to help with writing/editing/proofreading, I'm more than happy to help.

Yeah.... me, too. :oops: I'm a fan of the whole "rescue the sexy damsel" thing. I blame Return of the Jedi.

It's great to see this being announced! :D

As a long-time fan of the series, I can only patiently wait for the release to happen. Also, it's good to hear that you will combine the second and third chapter in terms of style - IMHO the third chapter had a more developed progression, but its linearity limited a bit the replayability factor. And perhaps the second one remains the most enjoyable fights-wise... :wink:

So, keep up the good work :!: :!: :!:

Two suggestions/requests if I may be so bold:

1)It'd be great if you considered sector light levels and player light sources carefully. TOTLM 3 was too dark in many areas for me and responded inconstently to the ambient light level gzdoom setting (often not at all). I didn't much care for the flashlight but I absolutely loved the flares, and cheated myself to a ton of them.

2) Your maps get a lot of their great ambience from sounds - with judicious use of SoundEnvironments they'd become incredibly immersive.
