Somewhere in between a bounty hunting game and a game about mysterious murders lies my current in-progress little project.
As of now unnamed, the goal is to eliminate your target while maintaining your own safety and avoiding detection of authorities.
Here (and in the future there shall be more) are some screenshots:
Names of players are given from a random list of first and last names with no special distinctions made. For giggle factor I’ve added in quite a few of the Admins names into the mix, although there is only a small chance that you will see a John Shedletsky walking around, as there are several other name combinations. Here we see the wonderful president Barrack Baszucki.
Wielding weapons of any kind makes a person act a little differently, also some weapons (like a freaking sword) would probably cause you to move funny if you were concealing it. Therefore handling weapons in the line of sight of a guard will arouse suspicion over time…
I found my target (who was actually probably my wife :shocked:)! (with only two players in the test server on a flat baseplate it wasn’t exactly hard) With a successful kill without any guards around I steal the points and go into rampage mode. Not worth another picture but it is worth nothing that Rampage Bonus is a flat number and will not stack upon killing multiple target, although killing another target will reset your timer.
I would also stupidly go on to walk out in view of the guard with my sword in hand, causing an instant full suspicion bar, and netting me jail time plus losing all of my points
I didn’t screenshot in time to show that, but holding a weapon in view of a guard gets you caught. Being caught takes all of your weapons, a large chunk of your points, and places you in a jail location, now just some small parts off to the side.
The map for this game (at least the first) is an extravagant mansion-turned-museum with many rooms and high security.
The weapons of the game will not be swords as displayed here, common household items and blunt objects are your best and most common sources of taking a target down. A cane, a kitchen knife, a baseball bat, etc.
Also not displayed here are non-weapons. Anything you can not use to harm another player but that can be picked up will lower the speed of which a guard will find you suspicious.
I shall add more onto this later as I progress and as I have time.
