Day 4 Update, 20 Stretch Goals Unlocked!
So 4 days in we are 539% funded and already have 20 stretch goals unlocked, that's a monumental effort and far more than I was expecting going into this. I really cant thank each and every one of you enough!
Our next batch of goals are a really mixed bunch, first up we have the trip line trap & token. The trip line is built from some of the same materials as the bow, when in play a 2 square token is placed across a corridor or ally, each time an infected moves over it you roll for a knockdown. Either set it and run away to search some rooms with the extra time it's buying you... or stand at the other side of it and execute (free kill) all the unfortunates that stumble over it!
Next up we have a bonus tile that's a children's outdoor play area / park. This will be used to extend the town maps in the Kickstarter extended cut(s)
So here's where things get pretty damn awesome... Civilians are not NPCs in the same sense as the little girl, you do not have full control over them. They follow a set of AI behaviors much like the infected, but rather than spawning and attacking they try to escape & run away from danger. If you have a hero within their line of sight you can choose for them to run towards you & herd them in the same manner as you can infected which opens up for some amusing/disgusting civilian sacrificing tactics :) If civilians are taken down by infected they will become infected themselves and join the hunt for the heroes!
Last one of this set (and the biggest one so far) is the Dark Tide Kickstarter Cut, much like the Exodus KS cut this one will feature expanded, enhanced, super duper versions of the Dark tide missions balanced for both 2 & 4 hero games. I have a fantastic idea for an exclusive chapter using those 3 poor guys above, so fingers crossed we make it to the next set of stretches!
Now judging by the comments/messages a lot of you guys are clamouring for some more add ons, we bounced a few ideas and MOST of these will be going up on MONDAY along with something which should make lots of you happy.
Have a great rest of your weekend & i'll be back monday with some more cool stuff :)
