You rarely even hear about a woman raping a kid these days
Makes it unique.
so I played the maps you have up for download, and if it was what I think it was, 'guilt' really needs some tangible form. After fumbling around in the dark and dieing instantly, it took me a second to remember what just killed me. sounds are nice, but not knowing what direction they are coming from is a little annoying.
I like the ideas and stuff and would love to help you as a modeler but I'm awful at humanoids so, poo
I could always make the sounds louder and more recognizable so that the player is more likely to notice the Guilt. While a form for the Guilt could also work, I feel it would detract somehow from the fear of the unknown- or to be more precise, the invisible.
I'll find a way to make the Guilt's presence more noticable while keeping it invisible :3
I look forward to playing this!
And finally, in my opinion, invisible isn't scary, its annoying.
Have you thought about having guilt push props away? that would keep it invisible yet noticeable.
Yes, it's on a track.
Guilt moves at 32 units per second :)
Also, I'm waaay ahead of you :P Guilt already does toss props around. In fact, a certain player took a lead pipe that can be found in the map, threw it at the Guilt, only for Guilt to toss it right back in his face and kill him. It was accidental (since Guilt just throws props upwards and not at the player) but badass :D
I see you playing Eawan as a mod on steam, Kahgarak. You can't hide from me! :3:
Are uh... are those things going to be in the mod?
If you manage to finish this, I will have such high respect for you it isn't even funny. The details of this mod sound amazing and I'm going to try those maps of yours when I get the chance. I am strangely reminded of the nihilistic mind of Hideki Anno during his depression during the creation of 'Neon Genesis Evangelion' and the show itself being the most fucked up and depressing thing I have ever encountered.
I'm going to keep an eye on this. It looks great, and it'd be amazing to see it turn into a full fledged mod, no matter how short it is.
I think the prop tossing for the guilt needs to be tweaked a little. When I played it, I couldn't see any props getting tossed around. Then I looked up at the ceiling and saw boxes stuck to it. While distracted by this, I died. The boxes move up into the unnoticeable darkness when I'm not looking, and tend to move with The Guilt. It was a little confusing.
Yeah, I've noticed. I'll lower the strength of the push trigger.
Just a thought, I reckon it would be alot more creepy and sinister if the props slowly slid across the floor towards you, rather than just flying around like crazy. Think of it like, something's alot creepier if it's sneaking around, you can't see it, but you know it's there, rather than just BOO IN YOUR FACE.
That might just be me however, and it's up to you really. Just a thought :D
I had a similar idea- having the push trigger's strength at a perfect value that makes props sloooowly hover upwards before falling down again, instead of throwing them upwards like crazy.
Reminds me of the Poltergeists from Shadow Of Chernobyl.
Added a screenshot of the main menu to the OP.
The ''achievements'' and ''dev commentary'' options will obviously be removed since Eawan will have no such thing.
i like the sound of this "roland asylum"
I really wish you all the best for this mod. I've tried about 3 times to get a mod going, but I eventually run out of ideas/motivation. (Not to sound like a downer or anything xD)
DON'T let that happen please, it looks really good, and I'd love to see it available for download on Steam someday
Thank you so much :D
Oh shit, I got that track from the OP stuck in my head last night when I was trying to sleep.
I felt like I was being watched by Marilyn as she lumbered around my room.
DRN! DRN! Post Spires!
I remember when I played the first map, a box thrown by the guilt hit me in the face.
I stopped in my tracks. "Did I do that? or was it the Guilt?" because I have a tendency to pick up physics props and throwing them around mindlessly.
Seconds later I saw bottles flying about.
Prey in the hall!
Also, I'm having some trouble with the chapter titles in the New Game menu, no matter what I do in the files they always show up as #eawan_chapter1_title etc.
Does anyone know how to properly set the titles in there? :3
Leave it how it is, say that it's a cryptic metaphor for her descent into madness.
Ask in there. I'm sure someone there knows how.
and by someone, I mean Firegod522
Oh, nvm, I misread. Ask anyway, they might know anyway
