nice idea... just looks unready .
critic: stiff monsters and you don´t know where you aiming in the 3D World.

Nice: the car driving and the sonic blast and the fat music.
also nice: the screaming woman :D

if you will give this game a finishing touch with more monsters and a multiplayer mode - it could rock!

Total crap. Yeah, it's unfinished, but comparing with the 2nd placed and extremely funny Last Dawn it's not amusing.

Apologies - this demo was built specifically for the machines at the Nullarbor demo scene comp. It does have pretty crazy requirements too but help is at hand.

If you have a core2 and GeForce8, then the default settings will work great. If you have anything less then you'll need to adjust some things. In the config.ini file supplied try changing the following options:

// Can change this down to 800x600
width = 1024
height = 768

// Either disable shadows all together
enabled = true
// or lower the settings, turn PCF off and reduce the number of splits
num_splits = 5
use_pcf = true

// If you have a slow cpu, try reducing the number of aliens - or if you just want to muck around, you can turn them all off :-)
numAliens = 5

Also be aware that there are some issues with the targets and dialog cues on the map. Multplayer is also there but without a server tracker to connect people, you'll need to manually set it up in the config file.

It's a heap of fun but unfortunately it isn't at a release stage yet. We will hopefully be putting up a more download friendly version as time permits - or keep an eye out for our next project which we are aiming to have a full game release for.

Thanks for your comments :-)

The in game trailer is up on youtube with a phat soundtrack (feat. sensory overload)

this is a great game, deserves its 1st place. looking foward to the release : some dino (whatever) animations would be kool!

Re. first post: There is multiplayer, you just need to modify config.ini to specify the host IP. It's a pretty simple death match mode, but fun none the less.

So, your way to apologize to is give a thumb up to your own prod?
