Blood demo
« on: April 15, 2012, 17:00 »

Do you remember Blood?  Fun game, right?

Well I'm not going to make a total conversion of it, but while I was appropriating its cultists for some of my future projects I started thinking about those cute disembodied hands.  So loveable their squeaky voices were as they tried their very best to ineptly kill you.  I love the hands.

So how could you implement them in DoomRL?  You can't just mash the action button to shake them off, and without the action packed flavor of Blood treating them like basic melee enemies seemed a waste.  So I ended up scripting this quick hand demo.  It lacks some of the finer spit and polish I'd normally throw in, but unfortunately I don't need any disembodied hands in my mods.  Still, it's a unique spin on an enemy and not something that's been done in DoomRL before.  So give it a whirl, and shoot the cheeky bastards.

Those hands fucking terrified me.
I was actually pretty scared, seeing my health just drop down as I attempted to shoot other hands.
My health hit zero and kept going: I assume this isn't intentional?

edit: pretty obvious it's not intentional, but I have something to report.
It's not going to happen in ordinary gameplay, but when my health went past -100%, the background of my name went lime green. When I aimed my weapon, it went brown.
Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Okay, you can die now if you really want to.  And the effect is more visually disconcerting than before.

If I ever use the hands in a mod I'll polish it more.  OR someone can make a blood TC.  I'd share what I have.

Really cool. With careful play, I was able to get to HR2 without getting hit, that made me faster than the hands, then Shottyman let me wreck shop. Cool effect!
