Alpha: Survival of the Fittest - Full Action RPG



==> Download Game - Alpha: sotf <==
66.4 MB (RTP Included)





Spoiler:
A story as old as nature itself, the Greywolf pack were once the mightiest wolves in the forest, but in time became arrogant and careless. The oppressed wolf packs around them had banded to destroy the Greywolf pack, and one stormy night engaged them in an epic battle. All that survived were the Alpha wolf Xerxes, and a young pup named Maxx whose mother was killed that night. Maxx would soon be forced into taking the role of Alpha and rebuilding the Greywolf pack, or else face the world as a Lone Wolf...




Spoiler:
Battles are fast and furious button mashing action, mixed with strategical skill use thanks to Vampyr Coders SBABS 12. You can choose to be a Lone Wolf, or produce offspring and Fight as a Pack! Tear through everything in your path from Rabbits to Grizzly Bears in an open world adventure that will take you from Omega to Alpha of the wilderness! Compete against 4 other Wolf packs for limited food supplies. The 8 Directional movement scripting gives a fluid action gaming experience. Original Music for this game by Violence Machine.

Controls:
A - Attack
S - Secondary Attack
D - Jump
Shift - Run
Space/Enter - Use/Pick up
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - Skill hotkeys




To produce a pack you must find a Den Mother, after that you must provide her with Meat. When there is enough food for her and a puppy, you can mate and a young wolf will be born. You can name the newborn, then go off and explore the world while you wait for it to grow up into a big strong wolf (about 2-3 minutes). Once the wolf has grown, simply approach (touch) the character and it will ask to join your group! Keep in mind, the more Wolves in your pack, the faster they will eat through your Meat reserves...

Once in your group, pack members can level up independently of the Player. So the more battles they fight at your side, the stronger they will become. Each wolf has it's own specialty (Attack, Defense, Speed, ect). If a wolf Dies, simply return to the Den Mother and mate to have the wolf reborn.





The Sniff skill is an invaluable tool that displays a mini-map in the top right corner of the screen, displaying the approximate location of Prey, Preditors, Super Preditors, Special Locations and the Players location. The minimap will show the strongest scents, so a rabbit hole or raccoon hovel (spawn points) may show up instead of individual creatures. It is useful to use this skill to see ahead in the map in case of Super Preditors that should be avoided until you have a full pack, or to find prey for quick meat gains.





Spoiler:

Alpha: Survival of the Fittest is an open world game that takes place in every corner of the wilderness, from frozen mountain peaks to blazing desert dunes. In a "Zelda style" game world with no "World Map", players will be able to actively explore great various locations such as:

The Winding trails of Greywolf Forest
The Bright grassy plains of Evershine
The Trecherous cliffs of Trueno Heights
The Scorching expanse of the Badlands
The Firey obsidian bluffs of El Mesa del Fuego
The Murky maze of The Black Marsh
The Icy paths of Chillywind Pass
The Spooky depths of Darkwood
The Dangerous streets of Downtown
And more!






Spoiler:



Maxx is a strong and intellegent grey wolf, born just before the pack lost it's position of power. He is traumatized by finding his mothers disembowled body, however this memory serves to fuel his richeous anger. After being left alone with his father Xerxes, Maxx must essentially fend for himself due to Xerxes lack of interest in him. There comes a time when Maxx must choose to become the new Alpha of the Greywolf pack and restore it to it's former glory, or else fade into extinction...


Xerxes was once the mightiest wolf in the forest, strong and sly, he lead the Greywolf pack into a position of authority over the wilderness. It was only after many years that Xerxes became complacent, too accustomed to never being challeneged. Confident in his superiority, he began to oppress the rival packs. He got his signature scar over his eye from Razor, who was just a young up-and-coming Beta wolf at the time. They scuffled over a deer carcass Razor had found on Greywolf territory, which lead to the banding of the other packs to defeat Xerxes once and for all...



Kush is the Alpha of the Redwolf pack that call Evershine their home. The Redwolves are smaller and generally weaker than the other wolves, but compensate with their cunning. Kush runs the pack from his hillside den lair, however recently contracted Rabies and has gone completely Mad...
Skill: Growl



Malvado is the Alpha of the Lobo pack, a group of black Archipelago wolves pushed from their northern home by the Arctic wolves and human expansion. Malvado spends his days awaiting fresh kills in his volcanic chamber, barking at the tremors which cause flames to sprout from the floor...
Skill: Bark



Frφst
is the Alpha of the Arctic Wolf pack, living in the frozen northern territories which has toughed them physically and mentally. Frφst is deaf, as evidenced by his one Blue and one Brown eye, however he often howls dispite it in order to keep himself warm on the icy summit of Mohawk Glacier.
Skill: Howl



Razor is the Alpha of the Timberwolf pack, known for their reverence of all things Tough and Cruel, Razor is the Biggest and Baddest. Even in his youth Razor was unusually large, able to take on more skilled elder wolves like Xerxes. He now spends his days in an abandoned Mine chewing the bones of his opposition.
Skill: Blood Lust

I appreciate any feedback! This is my first game released to the public, so I hope you enjoy it wink.gif

If you find errors in the game, please feel free to let me know. I have tested the game numerous times, trying to break my own code, and all I have found are a few very minor bugs that will not disrupt your gameplay experience, however I admit there may be some glitches I have missed. Please do not flood with comments like "I saw a hot pixel in the top corner for 2 seconds when so-and-so character turns left", I'm looking for fatal or game ruining bugs thanks.

Very promising indeed, I'll give it a try now...

Hmm. Several things I'd like to note.

Predator is spelled wrong.

Humans. Wow. Not surprising how much damage they can do from a range, but it's kinda surreal that I can't do any damage in return close up.

Can porcupines be hurt at all?

Pack members cannot jump. A minor issue so far, but also makes quick getaways via jumping over objects difficult. I like the concept of the game, but I think the AI could use some work. Also, what do the different choices for AI type mean? I see 4, a sword, a shield, a lightning bolt, and a yellow circle. Sword and shield are obvious, but what about the other two?

There seem to be some maps where the sniff function doesn't work. One example I've found so far is the farm to the west of Evershine Glades. Would be nice to know where the farmer is at all times while I ravage his livestock >.>

Is there any way to remove pack members? I think there will be some occasions where I'd prefer to work alone.

Moving between certain maps completely restores HP/AP.

I hate jumping at Trueno Heights :/

There are some occasions where I'm in a map and my party and I are completely immune to damage. Not sure what triggers this.

Also finally found a bug that caused my game to crash. The message is as follows: "Unable to find file Graphics/Characters/$GreyWolf1_idle_idle." What I did notice happening prior to this is that my wolf seemed to be stuck in the sitting and scratching himself position, even though I was moving around and attacking.

Your fourth cub (Howler, I believe) doesn't get healed when going to the spirit water(whatever it's called, sorry) in the tundra. I didn't get a chance to see if it was all water or just that one place. BTW, fun game. Registered just to inform you of this bug. wink.gif

Wow! Thank you all for the comments and support biggrin.gif Glad you're all enjoying it...

@AntarcticTiger: Thanks for pointing out the errors, here's some answers to your questions:

1. You're not really supposed to be taking on humans until the very end of the game...The farm is an excellent source of Meat early, but low exp...so long as you're willing to risk getting shot by the farmer. I removed the sniff ability for that map specifically so the player can't know the farmers location (although I admit there are a couple of other maps where the sniff skill is practically useless for other reasons)

2. You will need the Bark skill to kill porcupines

3. Pack members can't jump, it's true sad.gif however they will automatically "teleport" with you when you transfer to a new map

4.The Lightning Bolt and Yellow Circle sets Attack and Recovery skills as their primary AI concern (however only Xerxes will ever learn such skills so those commands are generally useless lol) I recommend keeping it on Attack (sword)

5. I tried my damnedest to fix the map switch/recovery/immunity bug (all one bug actually), but I couldn't seem to ever find where the anomaly was coming from so I just left it in tongue.gif The player could potentially exploit it for quick EXP gains...

6. No way to remove pack members other than getting them killed (I'd suggest the 'gators in the black marsh), however you can exchange pack members for one another once your group is full.

Thank you for playing my game, and I'll add those bugs you found to the list.

@Jakk43055: I somehow missed that one, good job finding that bug wink.gif

I don't like losing my pack members though, they're my kids after all :/

I played this, for about 40 minutes, until dying in Conch Cave after being sandwiched by two raccoons.

Short Review

The game is pretty unique. It gives the player a good time out of the common save the world from the Big Bad game. Though, I must admit that this game reminded him of a certain map you could play on Warcraft III's Battle.net. For as far as the story goes, since I have only started playing, the only thing he could comment on was how the player attacked your own starving and insane father. Other than that, though, the game itself gave me a good feel, and the challenge factor is just right. It isn't too easy, nor is it insanely difficult. Good job.

Some Bugs he has encountered: (Mostly Aesthetic)

1. Spring in the nearby forest removes the incapacitation status from your first cub, but its HP remains at 0.
2. Exiting menu while Maxx is still a puppy briefly shows the sprite of grown-up Maxx
3. Moving through some maps shows a clone of the hud while in map transition
4. When you attempt to bring your cub along for the first time, it shows the name "Fang" instead of the input name.
5. Cub could level up even when hp is 0.
6. Is the save point in the home cave the only save point?
7. How do lilies support a fully-grown wolf?
