HALLOWEEN 2020 DEMO RELEASED

Any feedback is appreciated!

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/r9626jnte ... d.zip/file


Story: Local hillbilly, Eddie, had his worst nightmare realized when the government built a research base in the cave system beneath his house. Things then went from bad to worse when that base was overrun with strange hellish creatures that began slaughtering the staff and generally making a mess of the place. Now with the screams of the damned keeping him up all night he'll have to go down there and find the source of this invasion and stop it if he ever wants a good night's sleep again.


Features:
- A five level campaign plus one secret level
- All new monsters all with new, original sprites and animations
- A brand new arsenal of weapons including the "Weird-Ass-Demon-Gun" which eats your enemies and then spits them at other enemies, the "Deep Fryer" which lets you deep fry your enemies and eat them for health and the "Compensator" which compensates for your embarrassing skill level by killing everything in the room
- A cartoony style
- A story told mainly through notes and environmental details (Notes are purely for story and never give you hints on progression or secrets so if you don't care about the story and just want to shoot some monsters you're free to ignore them.)
-2 new power-up items: the Can-of-Whoop-ass and the Thunderkiss, the former allowing you to kick enemies into walls or groups of their friends (Splattering them on impact) and the latter electrocuting any enemy who uses a melee attack on you.
- Juggle your enemies by kicking them into the air and continually shooting them, than slam them into the ground when you're done.

Okay, this looks rad.

Kinda like Redneck Rampage told through an underground comic book.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one. This looks cool.

Also... 16 holes... Hmm.

1...2....3,4,5...... You know what, nevermind...

Would you please use this to rewrite the entire combat system of Action Doom 2, please. This looks great.

The visual style between the enemies/weapon and level design textures seems to clash quite a bit, but it looks pretty interesting regardless.

So far I like this. I like the references to other games. I think I noticed one from Illbleed (Michael Reynolds museum if i'm correct). I'm assuming the tone is a mix of horror and comedy at least just for the demo? Not that it's a problem, but for whatever reason I think I was expecting something similar to Redneck Rampage. I really do like this though. Am excited to see the full version.

It's as if Blood had been made by mid nineties Lucasarts.

I'm really enjoying this so far except for the end boss who seems to have too much health or I'm using the wrong weapon.

After entering the first building on the right and the boss shows up and spawns some monsters, then he does the jumpscare where he drops the fake body. The first time I played the demo this jumpscare didn't happen.

In the room with the red key ambush, next to the boxes with the four Splatterhouse masks, there is a guy hiding back there that you cannot interact with.

Messages display really quickly yet you don't want them on the screen forever right, a nice trade off is having the same text dumped to the console window. Ditto with the out of bounds text at the start (behind the school bus) because it was red I could barely make out what was being said.

It would be cool if the player could zoom their view or focus on an object, for example the girl in the canoe.

Thought of something else, was disappointed when I found the axe in the tree stump but could not use it. An axe could definitely replace a 2x4.

Thanks to everyone for all the feedback!

Yeah, weapons like the Super shotgun and LMG have secondary fires in the works but they weren't quite ready for prime time just yet so I left them out of this demo.

I wasn't aware of the dashing glitch but I'm working on a fix. I'm also adjusting the boss's health, he might be a bit too beefy as it is now.

The TNT flashing blue is a leftover from a previous mechanic where blue items were things that could be kicked, I made the TNT flash blue to show that you could kick it. Since I'm not making all blue things kickable anymore I should probably make the TNT not flash blue anymore.

The axe in the tree stump with the candy bar next to it was just a dumb reference to Friday the 13th but I totally should make it a usable weapon!

Everything else so far should be a pretty simple fix. I'm really stumped what happened for you with the bathroom doors though, they seem to work fine fine on my end but I'll continue to look into it.

Glad we could help but... Bathroom door unlocked On your end? That's very strange. Maybe i was sequence breaking? Tho i'm sure i was heading the right way... Also used the toilets as well

Anyhoo, i really like how this is going. Good luck!
