An Adventure Beyond all Sense
What started off with the intention of making a serious shoot em up game degenerated into a bizarre, surreal shoot em up, mostly due to alcohol. Sod is a guy who has a dislike toward society. He finally cracks, and decides to go on a killing spree, killing the people known as Bastardos. Oh, and by the way, Sod has magic powers, he can explode people's heads by waving his hand at them, and he can breathe fire. He also has an pet mouse named David who can be used to scout the area, reach places Sod can't, and also detonate on command. Did I mention it was bizarre?
The aim of the game is to kill all the people on the level in whatever way possible, then find the dead chicken to complete the level. When you get to 10 bastardos remaining, it gets rather difficult to find people, so an arrow appears above Sod's head pointing towards a random person.
The second level you find yourself underground, and you have to dig your way through the dirt to find the bastardos, a task made much easier with the spiffy pnumatic drill, which can also be used to chisel flesh. The second level is unfinished, it is playable and finishable, but there are a few issues that need sorting out, I chucked it in the demo as a bonus, and cos the digging is cool.
There are seven main weapons in this demo, and also greandes and two magic powers. You can collect ammo for the pistols only and you can replenish your magic by collecting magic carrots.
I plan to have a few different gamplay types depending on the level. One level I have started is Sod riding around on a moped.
