Play as murderous RPG slime in wild new action game
This is no ordinary slime enemy. Asher Zhu, or Wuthrick on Twitter, makes a video game where you play the entire game as a slime. Now, instead of fighting the slime like a hero, you can finally experience what it’s like to occupy a mindless slime ball.
We have slime and more Cool WIP, Polygon’s weekly round-up with eye-catching clips and screenshots of work in progress. Every week, Polygon scours the web looking for the most interesting games still in development to bring you samples of the coolest and most promising titles.
This week we have regular slime, toxic slime, a virtual recreation of Moog, a developer using Twitter to develop the game, and a city filled with the most adorable dinosaurs.
Have a good week baby
Ashera Zhu slimes everything I want and even more. IN a recent clip, you can see how sticky and tough slime can be. At some point, we see how the mucus absorbs the entire human body and drags it around. It’s a far cry from all the good I’ve beaten up in various RPGs. I think it’s time for the slimy creatures to stand up and fight back. If you want to know more about how Zhu goes about making the game, you can check it out from his Twitter account or website.
A way to mess up any environment
Speaking of slime, developer Jarl Larsson demonstrated how they bring oozing disgusting slime to life. In the clip, you see how they set the radius of the goop and then lather it all over the natural environment. We first see it from the developer’s top-down perspective, and then the video shows a character in the game vacuuming it all up. Looks ugly but you can catch more of the developer work on your Twitter page.
Awesome Digital Moog
Daniel W., Environment Artist, recreated the Moog synthesizer in Unreal Engine. Clip about it shows how detailed the creation is; even the protrusions are labeled accordingly and have tiny little checkmarks. It is a loving recreation and entertainment for music lovers.
The developer accepts offers from subscribers
Developer Kmitt “hit a creative wall” while designing the new building, so they took to Twitter for ideas. People were suggesting to add features like waterfalls and bridges and the developer added them! Above, you can view the results. This is a unique example of human involvement in game development, and you can follow the rest of Kmitt’s work on their Twitter account.
The Most Adorable Little Dinosaurs You’ve Ever Seen
I love dinosaurs, and not just in the form of chicken nuggets. Amber Island is a shop and village simulator set in a world with dinosaur villagers. It’s a great concept, especially since we only see dinosaur fossils in beloved shows like Animal Crossing. Developer Ambertail Games posted a clip with two of the game’s characters, and I can’t help but admire them. Amber Island does not yet have a release window, but you can check more information on the developer site’s Twitter account.
