Our game takes place inside Medusa's temple. 1-4 soldiers work together trying to taker he down each round. The player playing Medusa can gaze into soldiers faces to turn them into stone. They can also use their bow and arrows to pick off the pesky soldiers who keep looking at the ground.
Soldiers will be equipped with a sword and shield. To kill Medusa they must get right up to her and land a hit. All without directly looking at her of course 😄
We're hoping it ends up as a stealthy scary game of hiding behind pillars and listening for footsteps and slithering sounds.
We'll do our best to keep updating this thread with progress as we go. It's really cool to see the awesome stuff everyone is doing for the jam 😄
Here is a video demonstrating the multiplayer part of our game. We've also got reflections in so the soldiers will be able to use the backs of their shields to look safely at Medusa. Sorry it's so dark.
All you have to do is download it and then one of you starts and room for the the others to join. (If they don't see it, then have them hit the refresh on their room list.) We recommend using some kind of chat program while you play, because we didn't get that added in 😉 The game is roughly balanced for 3 or 4 soldiers vs one of you as Medusa... but we have played with two and it is still fun, just far more challenging for the soldier.
We haven't put up a new version (though we do plan to) but you can definitely give what we have a shot. Feel free to let us know what you think of it and have fun!
