- The Running Dead -


The Running Dead is a small game with a high difficulty gameplay on you run to survive from zombies.

My idea was create a simple game of running and jumping to practice and learn more about the engine MMF2(Mulimedia Fusion 2). After see that was easy i improved it and added more things and born: The Running Dead.

The GFX are simply dots of 8x8 using a pallete of non-saturated colors all to get the most possible "real" looking for this resolution/style.

Official site: http://dev.kronbits.com/therunningdead


GamePlay:


Controls are easy: You can jump, Double Jump and Shoot. Is perfect por Mobile Devices, the left side of the screen is used to shoot and the right side to jump with the possibility to do a double jump.

Each level or screen have duration of 2.5s aprox. For this the total gameplay with 20-30 levels will be around 1-2 minutes depending of the total levels i finally add.

About the difficulty an example of % in fails at each level for a noob user:

Level 1: 20%
Level 2: 30%
Level 3: 35%
Level 4: 40%
Level 5: 45%
etc...

Obviously you will need a lot of practice and play again and again to reduce the % of fails and survive all the days possible(Each level is a day survived).

Also in the game you can took "decisions", example:

Owl:
If you touch it: He will fly out and will appear in some screen droping you a bullet.
If you kill it: He will appear in zombie mode at X screen following to kill you or not...

And maybe, only maybe, if you kill al the owls in the game or touch all them some secret or surprise can be revealed at the end.

Looks fun, can't wait to try it out! What price point are you considering for the different platforms? Are the Windows/Mac/Linux versions going to have controller support as well? What about the touch controls on iOS/Android devices?

The game is planned to be free. No controller support, are simply 2 buttons.

In mobile/tablets the control are: Touch the left side= Shoot, touch the righ side jump, no more.

Hey, I think the simplicity of this thing is amazing. I've been working on a game similar, but the more work I put into it the more complicated it becomes.

Anyway, I'd definitely try this out on Android/iOS.

looks pretty cool, Really like the style and the minimal controls are what make phone games successful so you've made a good choice there.
