Hunt 'n Sneak Devlog #3 - Multiplayer, Abilities and Upcoming levels

Pixel Engineers

556 views

ONLINE MULTIPLAYER

The core game mode is now fully networked and ready for lots of testing. Basic matchmaking has also been completed, connecting you to players in your region. Soon you'll be able to jump online and play with your friends, taking on the role of the hunter, now re-named the Gobbler, or the hiders, now known as Pixies. To make this a reality we're currently working on adding a server list that will allow you to see and join games, as well as the ability to join your friend's games by typing in their username. 

Multiplayer public demo is going to be available on the 4th April!

INTRODUCING ABILITIES

In an effort to increase the diversity of game-play we've begun to think about and design abilities for the Gobblers and power-ups for the Pixies. Before the commencement of each round the player taking on the role of the Gobbler will be able to select a Gobbler with a unique ability. Examples include a charge ability, night vision, and a ranged attack. Similarly Pixies will be able to collect items known as moon drops during the round to gain power-ups; including but not limited to invisibility from the Gobblers light, an oil slick, and decoy ability. 

LEVELS IN DEVELOPMENT

You've seen the Dark Cave and Spooky Mansion, but know that we are hard at work putting together new levels for your entertainment.

The pixies Enchanted Forest home is threatened by the Gobbler's insatiable hunger. Amidst giant flowers and mushrooms and beneath the umbrella of the tallest trees, he stalks his frolicking prey. So run and hide little pixies, run and hide or become a tantalising meal for the fearsome hunter.

A Creepy Dungeon is no place for pixie folk, especially when the Gobbler is close by, looming and lurking in the shadows. Within these cold stone walls where once many uncomfortable unpleasantries ensued, the inhabitants now search for a place to hide, to sneak away from gnashing teeth and pinching pincers. 

FEEDBACK

Finally, we've added a Feedback Form accessible from the huntnsneak.com homepage. We'd appreciate any and all feedback you can provide us so that we can work towards providing the most enjoyable game-play experience for you, the players.
