Post news RSS Guedin AoT Game - Progress on Counter actions

I know it has been a while since I posted anything, I had a really hard time trying implementing the counter action feature. Fortunately, I think I'm almost there, and know it just needs a couple of animation and a bit more love on the camera movement and it should be alright.

Hey guys,
I know it has been a while since I posted anything, I had a really hard time trying implementing the counter action feature. Fortunately, I think I'm almost there, and know it just needs a couple of animation and a bit more love on the camera movement and it should be alright.

The counter actions can be triggered after a titan attack successfully dodged. You need to catch the right timing to do so, or else you might be grabbed by the titan, or just can't be in the right condition to start the counter. The idea behind it is to reward players who take risk and stay in attack range of the titan. A confident player can quickly titans, but he also takes more risk to be grabbed.

Just dont make one side too op.
That move he did in the image should of spend a lot of gas to preform.

Also to make it more real,the titan should also have a counter as in when you counter and do that move around the arm he can also counter your counter with his other hand or in some other way.(maybe use his arm to throw you behind him by swinging the arm you are going around cuz the hooks are still attached to him)

Maybe have the character dodge the grip and run along the titan's arm. The move is to be a counter, so would that work? I'm also not sure if this is a simplification of what Blackdragon is saying

It's all part of balancing.
First I added titan, and people thought the game was too easy, then I added anticipation and tracking in the attacks of the titan, and then a lot of people told me it was impossible.
Now that the counter feature is in, the game is too easy :D
For now I'm focusing on trying to implement all the feature I have in mind, and then trying to balance everything together.
But what you said could be interesting to help the balancing indeed. I'll keep that in mind

I wouldn't worry about other people view's on difficulty until all the main gameplay functionality is done if I were you, after all there isn't even a download yet as far as I know so no one has played it, only you know if it is hard enough right now!

Many games have got ruined in the past buy developers listening to the more vocal part of the community, who are actually often just a select few not, not representative of what the majority want from the game. I just wanted to say, don't let people push your game in directions you don't want it to go.

Well,all I did was apply what we seen in the anime.
Eren went crazy on that titan and spend a lot more gas than he should off.
Many titans are stupid and slow,but some are quite strong even if they arent much different from the weak ones.
We have seen how easily eren and his group got killed.

Anyways...what I wanted to point out is that this should be a skill game.
A begginer player wont last long,while an expert will be able to kill 4 titans with ease.

One more idea that sounds interesting is if there will be teams.
One of the team randomly selected should have the power of eren and some way of choosing if you are going to kill titans or humans.

My opinion is that it's better to plan ahead that correct/add things later.

By onesided I meant how with some easy action you managed to swirl around titan arm - it's just too easy.
So either it will be really tough to preform that move or the titan needs to have a counter so that it's not too easy.

Good luck :)

I apologize if I'm being very demanding. It's nice a counter system, and hope you add more great features to the gameplay in combat.

btw my comment wasn't aimed at you specifically, I think personally running up the arm would be pretty damn cool but maybe that would be tricky to do, anyway I trust Guedinaot to make the right choice considering how good everything looks so far. Although I still want to see that titan change expressions, that would be so creepy but I suppose that isn't very important compared with actual gameplay related stuff.
