Meet the Footmen, Interview
Can't get enough of me talking about Tiny Barbarian? Head on over to Colony of Gamers, where Eric Leslie has put up a little interview with yours truly!
We're just a few dollars away from being able to scream out "It's over 9000!" Instead though, I thought I'd start introducing a few of the characters appearing in the game. First up, it's the hard-working soldiers that do most of the grunt work for that snake-worshipping cult I said you'd get to ruin.
This is a spear-throwing footman! He stands around, minding his own business, until something catches his attention, and then the spear throwin' commences! Spears are too big and heavy to be deflected by your sword, so get ready to dodge!
These guys won't hesitate to chase you down with swords a-slashin'. Their furious sword swings can push you back slightly if your sword meets theirs.
Some spearmen like to take a more hands-on approach to skewering barbarians, and they'll give chase if you come near! Their spears are sturdy and quite long, giving them a distinct advantage against frontal attacks. They don't turn around too quickly, though...
Some spearmen get a little overly fixated on their patrol--walking in a straight line and only turning when they get to an edge, they just keep going whether you're there or not!
Sometimes the job gets dirty and you have to crawl through a tight space to head off a stubborn intruder. Crawling footmen don't have much mobility but they come armed with blowguns, allowing them to snipe intruders from afar! Better watch out!
Aww man, now it IS over 9000! You guys did it before I had time to finish! You're great!
