Attack of the Giant Mutant Lizard

Control a giant mutant lizard to eat people, stomp cars, and throw things with your mutant tail which has claws for some reason. Spend points on upgrades and new abilities and try to survive an increasingly deadly hail of bullets.

You can find an early playable demo at GameJolt.

In case anyone's interested in testing the Android version (decent phone recommended -- 4.1 and up required), here is a thing you may want to click on. I'm interested in seeing what devices have an acceptable frame rate as well as any other problems that pop up.

It's been over 7 months since my last update. I should probably write a few things about what I've been up to.

Can I just say what a aid to seek out somebody who actually is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You positively know the right way to deliver a difficulty to gentle and make it important. Extra individuals must read this and understand this facet of the story. I cant believe youre no more standard since you positively have the gift. http://--------------------

will it be on ios/apple phones?Do you think it will come out on steam soon?

ExtraMedicated Jan, 2nd 2018 at 03:35

I wasn't really planning on making an iOS version, but it is a possibility. I don't own any Apple devices that I could test it on though.


I'd like to put it in early access on Steam within two months or so. But it's really difficult to give any time estimate. I will say that the finished game will be quite short.

Update 2018-01-01


It's been a while since the last time I posted an update for this game, so I thought I should take some time to talk about what I've been doing since then before people start to assume I simply quit or went into a coma or something.


I made a new level about 8 months ago that I haven't really said anything about yet. It's a small beach/boardwalk area.


Here's a screenshot:
Beach level screenshot


And since I have a beach, I also needed to add elephant seals (It would be crazy not to!).



Seals




During the summer I took a break from developing this for a few weeks. Instead, I got addicted to playing Dwarf Fortress (again) spent a couple days developing my new website, medicatedgames.com, where people can maybe post comments, get updates, and report bugs. I also formed my own LLC, which I hope was a good idea because it kind of feels like I made a big mistake for some reason.


Back to the game though -- I added the ability to select story mode or free-play mode when starting the game. Story mode lets you restart from checkpoints. I've been working on a couple achievements for the Steam version, and now the game records your high score and some other stats for story and free-play modes. I was also working on adding a new monster for free-play mode, but I'll save that for a future article.


Another thing that's different now is the way the character accelerates when running, and the pose used for jumping forward. Previously, if you got a couple speed upgrades, the character would move at full speed as soon as you pressed the button.



Running




Lastly, I updated the demo, but so far I only have the Windows version ready (the Linux version got horribly screwed up and I didn't even test the Mac version yet). [EDIT: I fixed the problem that caused the error on Linux and Mac. But, seeing what the error was, I'm now baffled about how the game ever worked in the first place.] I upgraded the project to a newer version of Unity from version 4.6, so you can expect to see some new bugs.


This time the demo isn't just that one little demo scene. It has the first part of the story mode (don't get too excited, it's not that great). If you've played the Android version, you may have already seen it.

It’s been about a month since my last post, so I thought I should take some time to say a few things about my game and recent developments before people start to think I’ve gone missing.

Well, it's been a while since the last time I posted an update, and I had a couple helpful comments and suggestions, and a couple changes based on some of them can be seen in the latest version of the demo. You can get the latest version here: Windows | Mac | Linux
But before I get into the details, I wanted to put a reminder here about the Android alpha version and my page in Steam Greenlight Concepts.

CLICK IT, YOU FOOLS!



Now that that's out of the way...


I replaced some of the sounds with higer quality ones and I recorded a new game play video with audio.






Bug Fixes / Enhancements (in no particular order):



  • The volume slider in the options menu now beeps when changing the volume.

  • Made some improvements to the visual effects. More blood splatters. Improved appearance of explosions. I was working on adding footprints whenever you stomp on the ground, but it didn't look good, so I'll hold off on that one for now.

  • I slightly altered the way the cops behave to make it less likely for them to stay out of reach. It's not perfect, but it's a start.

  • I changed the tanks so that they can detect if they are running into a wall and turn left or right to try to go around.

  • I think I fixed the bug where the stomp attack would occasionally freeze the monster in place. Let me know if you see it happen again.

  • I enabled the 16:9 aspect ratio after fixing some UI elements. No more vertical borders!

  • There's probably a bunch of things I'm forgetting... I'm sure it's not important.


New Stuff:


I have new audio clips for the police sirens and for the tank's engine. The tank also plays an additional sound while moving. Speaking of tanks, I made some modifications to allow the tanks to run over things instead of just pushing them out of the way, or rolling over like a turtle.



Tank crushes car


So realistic!




I also did a bit of work on things that aren't in the demo. Here is a cut scene that is played before you reach the last area:



cutscene optimized




There's plenty of work left to do, and not a lot of spare time, so it'll likely be a while before I upload a new version of the demo. Fortunately, there's a holiday coming up this week, so hopefully I can put the two extra days to good use.
