So I have been following this game and I’m really excited to see the results. This is already on my wishlist on steam. So after watching some videos, pics, and reading all of the games current info, I feel one thing that would give the player a sense of scale, and vulnerability, is “Massive Robots”…Just hear me out.
So let’s say these Massive Robots, which I nickname “Big Mother” show up once in a while, not too much as they wouldn’t really be a center point or a focus, but give the player that feeling that “This may be harder than I thought” feeling. Think “War of the Worlds”… So imagine running around the several different houses, looting and what not…then…suddenly a distant rumbling starts. The player would stop in their tracks. Upon investigating through a window or front door…there in the distance is a Massive Robot looking around, scanning. Perhaps it is checking on the progress of the other robots. If you felt brave, perhaps try to get a little closer. This new robot would make you seem so small, considering it would be comparable to a building in height. Then, after a few moments… it leaves. The player could continue their journey. I just feel that it would help immerse the player in that “Danger” mode. After getting supplies and becoming stronger, you and your friends could take out some robots…but you will always remember and know… perhaps the “Mother” robot would be simply too much…so keep your eye out, it could appear from time to time.
Anywoo… sorry for rambling. I already Love this game and will be Very excited to play.
