Minigore Episode 4 Dev Diary

We know there's lots of eager fans who want to know what's happening with Episode 4. This gameplay video might shed some light on the current state of the update:

video

As you can see the zombies are working quite nicely, object collisions work properly and the level art is nearly final. Some sound effects are missing and the music is being worked on. Co-op multiplayer is not visible in the video but even that one is coming along nicely :)

    I wish they have a release day. This preview only makes me more anxious for the next update. Btw that is alot of zombies for only day 3 and is there going to be night and day since its a zombie mode? (night and day affects dual wielding)

  3. Very cool, cant wait. The obsticles look good, and is it possible to post a pic of the layout of the map? And the video really shows how each zombie moves now. Very cool.

  12. Timo, whether added to the game's soundtrack "Predator"?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ya I would like 'predator as one of the games soundtrack. Maybe in Inferno Mode or in Zombies.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hey, if the pic is of the knight, does that mean he will be a new character in episode 4?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  16. Zombies! Hell yeah, that's all we need! Plus, object collision should really bring some dynamism into the whole thing. Lookin' forward to it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for the update. its looking amazing and fresh, and thanks for the new soundtrack!!! i think a flamethrower would work really well in zombie mode.....just throwing it out there

    ReplyDelete

  23. anon above
    HEll yeah haha. He is already confirmed as an upcoming player:)

    btw timmo can you tell us anything about the mysterious dark knight?

    ReplyDelete
  24. wow mountain sheep i have to say i am pissed off. This is just a short little gameplay video that really exposes even less then some of the videos rooteboy has posted. Yet you expect us to be satisified with this crappy little release. All you under 60 iq fanboys are gonna love it of course but unless you release somehting real then those stupid litte fanboys will be all you have left

    ReplyDelete
  25. @ben ferguson

    Rooteboy did not "post" anything. He simply took parts of TIMO'S post on touch arcade and put them here. We thank rooteboy for that. Maybe timo wants to keep some secrets on episode 4 to suprise us? And the video showed plenty on what it looks like so far.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't think they care about losing one fan because he's bitchin' about the work they're doing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. omg... hello i'm a french fan, sorry for bad english ^^

    Will Metal Bear be in Episode 4, or later down the road? And do you need help with his design/ development?

    ReplyDelete
  34. sould add a flamethrower and make mr takle a boss in a levle plus flying furries please.

    ReplyDelete
  35. whoa at 0:23 i think theres a zombie poppin outa its grave! I dunno, kinda pixely. hard to make out :/

    ReplyDelete
  36. I know you get this alot and sorry if it annoys you bet when will the update come out?

    ReplyDelete
  37. @thatoneguy
    that is how the zombies spawn they come out of the ground. Timo explained this somewhere i just forgot where. He also said that it would be really hard to spawn from the grave due to the obsticle collision so i think its just a patch of ground.

    @Anon^
    haha give them a month or so. They have already done so much. He said CO-op is coming along nicely and plus the map is pretty much done they are just adding some tweeks.

  38. Hi, there has been a load of new content hinted at and confirmed and I was wondering which of these (below) have been confirmed for 4, in an episode after 4, or completely discontinued:
    ice map
    zombies
    coop
    knight (melee)
    metal bear
    old man tackle
    zombie sheep
    hardgore
    http://minigore.blogspot.com/2009/05/fury-of-furries.html -(character with mask)
    minigore psp
    jenny gore
    the master of the puppets
    deckard the scarecrow
    enemy characters dressed in red

    ReplyDelete
  39. Also can I add, a storyline.

    ReplyDelete
  40. @anon^
    Confirmed in episode 4: zombies and coop. I'm hoping they get the melee knight in there otherwise the icon would just be stupid

    Confirmed in later: Ice map, metal bear, jenny gore.

    The rest are either discontinued or will show up in Hardgore(if it ever goes into production) or hopefully in a later Minigore update. Timmo did say that they were planning to include everything that you see in the start up screen of minigore so the master of puppets will hopefully come in an update:)

    As for storyline....It seems a bit too late to implement it now. It will probably come with Hardgore but hey the tie in with Guerrilla Bob could prove me wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What the fuck was the point of calling that update (I think it was 3.8) the "zombie" update. They could have just called this next update that actually has zombies the "zombie" update.

    ReplyDelete
  42. maybe new character:
    Chuck from "Zombie Wonderland"

    ReplyDelete
  43. All looks wonderful but please tell me it's going to run properly on 1st and 2nd gen devices.

    ReplyDelete
  44. wow..i love the sound!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. i seriously think were due for a realese date BY NOW! lol hate to ask that question but its true .....please do realese.

    ReplyDelete
  46. For some reason I really like the sound effect for when day three popped up...:)

    ReplyDelete
  47. metal bear? what's metal bear?

    ReplyDelete
  48. hi timo the game is GREAT i have 3 ideas that you could include in minigoree
    1 gunless mode, you just have to run away from furies, no fire or predator furies on this one but some kind of new fury like invinciible fury or rhhino fury
    2story modde, fight furies to fill the blod bar and when it is full you get your life back and a boss apears, bosses could be the chef, octopus vudu doll and of course the master of puppets!
    3sandboox mode, buttons on the top to make appear furies off all kinds guns clovers bosses or any other thing in the game

    my keeyboard is kinda wierd so sorry forr all the mistakes!

  49. I THINK THAT YOU SHOULD PUT MORE LEVELS MORE NEW GUNS AND ITEMS TO HELP YOU OUT IN MINI GORE EPISODES 4 AND MORE CHARACTERS ITEMS SHOULD BE LIKE AN ITEM THAT FREEZEZ TIME FOR 30 SECONDS AND THEN YOU CAN KILL SOME OF THE FURRIES OR SLOW DOWN TIME AND SOME FUTURISTIC GUNS

    ReplyDelete
  50. People like you, WHO TYPE LIKE THIS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BAD GRAMMAR AND THINK THAT TYPING IN CAPITALS WILL GET THEIR POST NOTICED, should not be allowed to speak their opinion in a public forum.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Plz add a sand box mode it would be AWSOME

    ReplyDelete
  52. i have a charecter idea, he is a miner gore (feel free to change the name) he has a miner helmet and a shotgun the good thing is because his helmet has a light he can duel wield at night time tell me what you guys think

    ReplyDelete
  53. @anon above
    I think thats a cool idea! No characters can dual wield at night yet =/

    ReplyDelete
  54. @thatoneguy
    i totally agree
    ive really wanted to dual wield aat night and if zombie mode would only be night then miner is even better

    ReplyDelete
  55. yea!! characters can duel weild a night!
    Wait will episode 4 be released on minigore HD too?

    ReplyDelete
  56. I Can not Wait until Episode 4 comes out!
    P.S will the game Hardgore come out at the same time?
    Please tell the public the release date!

    ReplyDelete
