GRAB IT HERE ON ITCH.IO
I've surprised a few people when I mentioned I plan on adding more content to GMOTA, so let's get this sorted out with a little roadmap so you guys can keep track of what I got planned in the future. I have no release dates on the coming updates but this is better than leaving people in the dark.
One last hero is planned, Samson will feature a retracting chain whip, throwing flasks, and a bow gun!
(I'll add this here too, if you wanna support me I got a Patreon and a paypal.me. These updates are coming no matter what, but any support will keep me fed.)
The stalwart Kustam joins the battle, gun down monsters with his powerful hand cannon or crush them with his staff!
Knightmare mode! Challenge Ruceal's forces in a new way with revamped and powered up foes, along with some unique enemies exclusive to this difficulty!
Further tweaks to Blaz and Doomslayer's gameplay!
The ability to pick up and throw barrels as any of the heroes!
the savior and defender of the land of Lothar, what this courageous knight lacks in ranged capability, subtlety, or stature; he makes up for it with expert swordsmanship, an amazing pitching arm, and raw strength. Blaz has been tasked by the Goddess of Light with rescuing her sister, the Goddess of Time captured by the forces of Ruceal, a mysterious demon that has imprisoned the Goddess and used her powers to build a massive tower in the middle of Lothar itself. The tower contains gateways and paths that leads to an untold number of time periods, realms, and dimensions, all of this in an attempt for Ruceal to further expand his forces for his own goals. Where Blaz and his friends wind up all depend on your choice of mapset!
Blaz specializes in close range combat with his magic sword, Zarach, as he slashes his foes, he can build up and store energy to power his weapon for increased damage, which also restores his life with each powered slash. Along with extra damaging melee strikes, his powered up sword can unleash unique elemental sword techniques depending on his currently equipped subweapon. He can also drag enemies up close and personal with his grapple chain, or keep them still with a shot from the Blazter, his magic arm cannon. The Blazter also has unique sub ammunition types offering rapid fire attacks, explosive rounds, long range accurate lasers and much more. He's also capable of hurling his sword for a crushing ranged attack, and is still dangerous in melee with a flurry of dizzying punches and a spinning lariat.
WHY CHOOSE BLAZ?
Blaz is best suited for those who want to stay focused on melee combat, though he relies on his subweapons and arm cannon to help make up for his weak ranged attacks and lackluster crowd control.
The stalwart champion of the Lotharian arena. Not much is known about the warforged's life before the arena, other than his deadly keen aim with his destructive hand cannon. Kustam had been given a new lease on his life after an encounter with Blaz, choosing to fight alongside the knight and help defend Lothar, he enters the tower in search of his friend.
Kustam's greatest strength is his range, even with his melee weapon he is capable of striking down foes from a comfortable distance, he also wields the only hitscan weapon in the form of his hand cannon. Caution must be taken as with his slow attack rate and need to reload his gun, Kustam is at risk of being overwhelmed in high pressure fights. Despite this, he's still built for endurance with the use of Medi-tool, capable of healing damage done to him, or even recover ammo at the cost of HP. His subweapons are a mixed bag, the subshots for his hand cannon grant him alternate means of attack at range, whereas the support potions from spell cubes offer unique temporary buffs, such as increased move and attack speed, super charged attacks, or even invulnerability. Finally, Kustam is capable of delivering powerful kicks to daze and push foes back, giving him some crowd control, this can also be charged up to further send monsters reeling.
WHY CHOOSE KUSTAM?
Kustam is best suited for players that prefer a more methodical approach to combat, favoring those who plan and prepare for the battles ahead.
After destroying the mother of all demons, Doomguy had chosen to remain in hell for all eternity, endlessly fighting hellspawn to make sure they never threaten mankind again. After spending so much time kicking demon ass, the Doomguy had became hell's own boogeyman, being referred to as the Doomslayer. While his will remained unbreakable, his old gear did not. A chance meeting with an unknown entity has granted him a new suit of armor, repaired weaponry, and a really big sword. Fate itself seems to have brought the Doomslayer alongside Lord Blaz and his companions, but neither party is complaing, seeing as all of the heroes are all too happy to rip and tear until it's done.
The Doomslayer is the only hero that wields more than two weapons, giving him flexibility in a variety of scenarios, though his low ammo capacity will often force him to swap frequently, killing foes with his melee weaponry will cause ammunition to spill out, so don't be shy to hack them apart with his sword or saw gauntlet, he lacks finesse in melee but it's still more than enough to bring down most monsters with ease. His subweapons offer utility with his various bombs, and life regeneration with his throwing daggers. Don't be shy to use those, even when you don't have any special subweapon, you can still throw standard bombs and drain daggers an unlimited amount of times!
WHY CHOOSE DOOMSLAYER?
Doomslayer is best suited for those who want a slightly more traditional Doom approach to combat, think of him like a Julius mode for GMOTA, his high movespeed and large arsenal means he can pretty much handle any encounter with ease.
KNIGHT ARCHER: The disposable grunt forces of Ruceal's armies, alone they are stupid, weak, and pretty predictable. In groups they're stupid, weak, predictable, and have more arrows flying your way. Watch out for their elemental arrows, their ice shots will numb your body and slow you down, and their fire arrows hit harder and leave small lingering flames that burn your feet!
STEEL DUKE: Low ranking members of the void hood cult, these strange fighters mutter in a forgotten, incoherent language, be mindful of their magic maces as they're capable of slinging a shotgun blast of painful spiked mace balls, usually right into your face. They're also not shy about just clouting you upside the head with the mace itself.
BLACK VIPER GUNNER: Dangerously accurate machine gun toting cultists that are more than happy of riddling you full of bullet holes. Fortunately they are complete cowards and prone to running away if you get too close to them, unfortunately that means if they get enough distance from you, they'll shoot super sniper rounds.
IMP SKIRMISHER: The other common foot soldier type you'll commonly find, they'll gleefully throw an endlessly supply of maces at you at a distance, but they too are more than eager of jamming it into your head.
LIVING ARMOR: Not content with just recruiting humans and monsters alike, living armors were the result of needing a mass produced melee fighter, they have no special abilities other than swinging their large sword with ease, on the plus side it's nearly impossible to have a living armor sneak up on you, their footsteps are loud.
MAGEBANE THIEF: Silent, persistent, and downright fiendish, these sneaky bastards are capable of draining your ammunition and magical reserves with a single stab of their knife. Worse still, they're capable of throwing them.
SKUTTLE: These strange creatures are the very manifestation of confusion, have you ever went into a room and forgotten why you went in there? Take that and amplify it by a hundred and you have the Skuttle. They'll fly fowrard with reckless abandon and do their best to body slam you, another monster, their fellow Skuttle kin, or the wall. Be mindful of their eye rays too, it stings.
RED WYVERN: These subspecies of dragon will be the main reason why you check the skies, capable of spewing fireballs at you at long range or using a dangerous flamethrower at closer ranges, either keep them at bay or get up close and don't give them a chance to act.
BROOD SLIME: Disgusting winged slimes capable of filling rooms concerningly fast with their own young, their method of this involves firing a sticky wad of slime at you, classy. When hurt enough their wings will be clipped, but be careful, at this point they may create a clone of themselves out of desperation.
GRENADIER REVENANT: Distorted and altered skeletons possessed by the souls of greedy miners, these skeletons are constantly forming crystals within their chest cavities, which understandably leaves them incredibly agitated. Their choices of venting this anger is in the form of heavy crystal orbs launched from their shoulder cannon, coming in a fast flying sphere, an explosive arcing spike ball, or a seeking orb of pure malice.
Oh and they have a mean haymaker that will send you reeling.
BOMBER KNIGHT: Burly monsters that sling small bombs at you from a greater range, or larger bombs when you've gotten too close for their own liking. Thankfully the big bombs can be destroyed, just be mindful you don't get slashed down by their sharp claws when you're that close to them
HELLFOS: Elite skeletal soldiers packing an enchanted sword and shield, these fiendish warriors are capable of cleaving you apart in melee, slinging fireballs, or scattering a storm of sharp knives from their shields. Take care when engaging these guys in melee.
MAGE GUNNERS: Fast moving and high ranking members of the void hood cult, they carry enchanted rifles that fires bursts of magic bullets, though their weapon has a few extra tricks, capable of being charged and firing a powered up energy ball that can be reflected by attacking it, or a dangerous explosive magic missile.
PAVISE GUARD: Heavily armored, heavily armed, and just plain heavy. These stout monsters carry a triple shot cannon that can knock you around at a range, but be mindful of his rapid fire mini cannon attack when you get within smelling distance of them.
THE BONELORD: Taking the skeletal remains of a necromancer, giving them armor, and an arm cannon makes for a lethal combination, along with doing wonders in boosting their ego. Bonelords will fire skeletal rocket fists at you, because just punching you in the face isn't good enough for them. Be mindful of their bright white grasping bone hookshot hand, as it will quickly pull you in close, perfect for a follow up of briging that heavy arm cannon straight down onto your head. At longer ranges, they'll lock onto you and fire a devastating mortar shell with a skeletal payload, stay mobile!
If that wasn't bad enough, not only can they revive monsters, they are capable of self resurrection, either hit them hard to scatter them to begin with, or keep attacking their remains when they crumple to make sure they don't get back up.
THE EDGELORD: The acolytes of the void hood cult, these evil wizards specialize in hurling magically formed javelins and daggers at you, they're also capable of conjuring towering pillars that open up a dimensional rift of etheral crossbows constantly firing bolts in the direction it was cast. They're also capable of projecting a shadow of themselves that also sling javelins and daggers at you.
Despite their overly dark and menacing apperance and behavior, that facade can be easily broken if you focus on them down. Just don't leave them to their own devices for too long.
THE CYBERMANCER: The results of merging ancient technology with arcane magic and old demon remains, the Cybermancer is a hulking monstrosity that wields a magic arm cannon, firing not only enchanced blasts of unstable magical energy, but also heavy rockets, and it be overcharged to fire ceaseless storms of raw energy or a huge beam. Approach and fight these foes with caution.
