As many of you may or not be aware, I am currently developing a zombie shooter for the Atari Jaguar. I prepared a short one level demo for playtesting at E-Jagfest 2017. The initial reactions and feedback have been good so far.
Some of the suggestions I have had made to me are:
*implementation of light gun support, (which would friggin rock if I could get it going)
*Different more upbeat music
*Exploding barrels and other objects. (which is already happening)
*multiple weapons (I'm thinking of just going with the shotgun and limited hand grenades that you need to collect)
* more variation and randomization with the zombies.
* more precise aiming (working on it!)
Based on the feedback I have received so far I am trying to implement some of the ideas suggested to me. I thought I would share a short progress video here and a playable demo for you folks who have a Skunkboard of the progress so far. Keep in mind this is very much still a work in progress and not all things are complete.
Below is the current work in progress build for folks at home to try out. This one level demo isn't very much different from what was shown at eJagfest by Nick.

I won't be posting video updates as much on this one as I have on my past projects as I want to keep updates to the progress fewer, but if you have any suggestions on this particular game I will take note of it and if it fits into my vision I will do my best to make it happen.
