Horde

by yzwijsen - Mini LD Entry

A low poly FPS where you have to defend yourself against waves of Zombies.
There's an unlimited amount of waves and with each wave the zombies spawn a little faster and in greater numbers.

Low poly world & assets created by me

Other Assets used:
Zombie model (bitgem3d.com)
weapon sound FX (freesoundeffects.com)
Music (twinmusicom.org)

I was initially hoping to create an enemy model/animations and record some background music myself but realized about halfway in that I wasn't going to have enough time for that :)

Hope you enjoy it, thanks for reading/playing!

Fun as hell horde shooter, and love the low poly artwork. Really impressive considering the short time given to build it, had a ton of fun on this, and got to wave 11 B] (where literally every zombie was a tank one)

gj dude, awesome game

super impressive game! great 3d models and nice landscape, cool music and sounds. Fantastic!

I am very happy I had unlimited ammo and the ability to jump :)

Great game man. The controls feel good and the scenery is beautiful.
The music works great with the game, if you would have paused it in-between waves, it would have build the tension even more :D
I was disappointed that not even the giant enemies can reach me, or destroy the rock I was standing on.

Thanks for the feedback! :)
It's been a while since I did any 3d modelling, and this is my first try at low poly / flat shading, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

And yes, If I work this out further I definitely need to look at a better solution for players going on rocks / trees. I just blocked some of the areas off last minute, but it was kind of an afterthought and not really done well. Might just go for an easy solution though and add enemy archers or something :)

And good suggestion about fading the music simple32, hadn't thought of that but it will indeed help to build the tension a bit more!
thanks!

Great game, the 3d environment all good really good and it plays well. I know its blasphemy but i like to play FPS with a controller so for me controller support would have been good. Also I find they have always crept up behind me without me noticing, so something to give me a clue would have helped, maybe a minimap or something. Maybe its just because I suck at the game though.

Also I have just notice. The bad guys does not load the texture on linux. I see the goblins as black figures running against you. :) I have seen on the screenshots that the bad guys have texture. :D
