CryoFall Dev.Blog #9 - Creatures
Let's continue with our overview of CryoFall! This time we are looking at some possible creatures you can encounter in the world of CryoFall.
From the examples below you can get a decent idea what you can expect to see in the game. This is obviously only a small fraction, but as you can see we have both: normal animals, such as wolf or chicken, as well as some weird monsters like spider-scorpion-thingie or cloaked lizard, which normally isn't the size of a person, but here it is.
Each creature features a custom AI that determines its behavior making interactions with them a bit more interesting than simple "This animal is my breakfast!" or "Aaaaah! Help, help! something is chasing me!".
Another possibility we would like to explore in the future is the actual ecology simulation. Actual predators-pray chains where some animals will be hunting other and it will all be tied together with the world itself.
Thanks to our artist here's a couple of animation frames of the Scorpio monster:
Anyway, that's it for this week report. We will continue next week as always. And good news is that we are getting closer and closer to our first closed test. We will probably start accepting applications to this test on our forums, so if you are interested - make sure you are part of the discussion!
