Office Chair Zombie Shooter

Post by Jimanzium » Sat May 10, 2014 1:15 pm

I've been working on this for a few weeks now but I've hardly worked on it the past week so I'd like to share it and get enough feedback etc. to be able to make more notable and worthwhile changes.

The idea is you're in a zombie filled office and your best defence is getting on an office chair and using your gun for propulsion to smash your way through the hordes.

As usual any feedback is appreciated, suggestions are always welcome and if anything sucks don't try and be sensitive about it.

If you find a bug I most likely know about it and haven't done anything about it. Known issues include some collisions may be off, corners can be an issue and the wheel trail dips about.

Neat Idea!

The mechanics are good... it's a nice gameplay element to have to shoot backwards in order to move forward. Well done!
The fact that the player is sitting in an office chair is pretty fun as well.

What I don't like yet are the graphics and the sounds. The graphics remind me of MS Paint... sorry :P.
But it's already pretty fun to play! Keep it up!

Great game, it is nicely done. I haven't found any bugs or glitches. To be honest, I don't like the bullets sticking out of the walls, but thats the only bad thing. Keep up the good work!

That.....

was solidly enjoyable....

Well done on a neat mechanic, my only peeve was the first weapon had a little push to it and thus i ended up hugging corners shooting the zombies instead of plowing through them, but when i felt the second weapon played out well- especially when I get stuck...

Them sound effects hardly get boring, infact the little "tune" they made was entertaining to hear.
Graphics felt like they did what the needed and the subtle red tinting and pulsing LOS circle are a nice touch!

Thanks for the feedback, good to see people like the idea. I intend to remake most of this project somewhere in the future when I have less things to worry about/things I should be worried about. I hope for the redo to be much better quality, in terms of art and gameplay. There are many things that will need complete re-works for a better game, such as the weird room collision system being replaced with something much more universal which will hopefully make the levels much less linear and much more interesting. I'd also like to add different weapon types so you can get things like a fire extinguisher, not just basic bullet weapons. In general it will be much much better to play and hopefully worth some money.

I too know how it feels to stare at some work and feel the need to rebuild from nothing(or something) improving on the previous piece, i wish you luck when you do get around to putting together the next piece!

As a request for interesting weapons...harpoon-gun...stick into the dead thing or a wall and "swing" around in dizzying glee :awesome:

Ah, yeah, fixed that.

A harpoon gun would be really cool, I'll most likely do that.
