Stickman Evolution

by chaosBrick - Jam Entry

Stickman evolution is a first person shooter in which you have to shoot 'stickmen' that evolve and mutate (and sometimes fall from the sky) while saving your own life.
For shooting them you get scores and are listed in a local highscore list.

System requirements are pretty high since this game runs a low class selfmade physics engine and a pretty highly detailed map as well as complex fog. (The fog can be disabled though)

Have fun playing!

D: I had no idea if I were hitting the guys. I lost with only 50 points... :(

This game is so great! I was laughing my ass off the entire time. Those animations are spectacularly hilarious. I'm not quite sure how this pertains to evolution, but it's great regardless.

Would have liked the R key also be usable to reload, but very well done. It would be nice to see it taken further and enemies evolving different body shapes and such to keep the progression moving smoothly. :)

@kiwi
Sorry, i haven't been able to send a proper directx9 setup with the game, which causes these messages to pop up. Maybe it will run if you install another DX9-game on your computer and then try it out?

Any chance for a Mac version?

DirectX is not supported on mac systems, and I do not own a mac system., so there's no way to get this thing to run on a mac.

This is the most fun FPS-game I've seen in a Ludum Dare! Kudos!

I wish there was a little more of a goal, and I thought most of the weapons were underpowered, but headshots with the magnum were SOOOOO satisfying! :) I got 10450.
