Framerate was too bad for me :-( I liked the intro though!

The framerate chugged for me, too. Also, the mouse pointer showed over the screen, which made aiming confusing.

In the background of the city, I get all sorts of graphical garbage - like you aren't clearing the back buffer between frames or something.

I liked the voiceacting at the start XD and the overall feel/atmosphere was cool, but was very slow to start, camera/mouse issues and I fell off your playing area! Some indication of how many kitties / zombies left would have been cool

Just too difficult to play. The FR is simply too low.

The bad: The framerate was slow on my powerful computer, the cutscene was long, unskippable, unnecessary. Once you fire the gun for the first time, the camera goes into a top down view that makes it impossible to see anything. The physics on the mobs were strange, they were spinning in midair as they moved.

The good: Before firing the gun the camera view was good. The eerie music combined with the spinning cats/zombies gave the made it a surreal fever dream. Some of the bugs made the game better!

Unplayable, but the atmosphere is superbly insane.

thanks all for the comments I really will work on the performance, probably adding less zombies, or changing some controls to act only on the visible zombies.

Opening cinematic was hilarious.

Hey wow framerate... couldn't move.

The framerate actually got better the more I waited. But ya, more optimization is needed to make this playable. The voice overs were funny.

Thanks for that

Framerate too poor to play it (~3fps). Great ambient music though, and nice stylised characters.

This morning I made some optimizations and getting around 10fps, will see other tunning that I can made.

Is everything supposed to be permanently tumbling, or is that a bug?

athanazio says ...
May 4, 2011 @ 4:47pm

choose tumbling instead of animation hehehe not able to animate yet, still learning heheheh

Holy crap the frame rate was terrible! I locked up my computer. On a good note, I liked the voice over in the into.

Framerate was fine for me. Are you updating your competition entry with optimisations? That wouldn't be cool :) I'll assume it's just my PC handling it.

Could use a skybox and some kind of objective, I ended up wandering the city aimlessly... though there's a nice atmosphere to it.

not updating compo entry at all !!! will upload in a different path !! if and when I optimize :)

I luv the intro..

I like the atmosphere, the music, the cats rolling around.. it is very interesting.
Everything looks good, only needs a performance boost.

@randomnine : nah framerate is still the same:)

Nice entry, it was very atmospheric and the intro sequence was quite funny (but not skippable - sucks for repeat plays)!

Initial framerate was also quite bad until I shot a couple of zombies at which point it became playable. Biggest other problem is the turning controls which seemed oversensitive at times (perhaps also framerate related).

Still a good entry for 48 hours, especially given the nice 3D graphics and atmospheric sound - well done!

Very neat, however getting tedious fast. I found 7 kitties and then ran through empty street. Until I jumped off the map ;)
Why are the kitties rolling around?
The turning speed seems somewhat random.

Was unplayable for me, almost froze my browser...
But the intro was funny as hell!
