DYZE — Day 4


It's Day 4 of the development of Dr. Yond's Zombie Experiment.  Today we added NPCs, who are both hazards (as they can attack and kill zombies) and resources (as they can be converted into new zombies).

Right now the behavior of these NPCs is very simple: they periodically flip between facing left and facing right.  And if they have an attack, and a zombie is nearby in the direction they are facing, then they do their attack.  But they can take out at most one zombie per attack, so they are easily overwhelmed as long as you have multiple zombies to bring to bear.

For the villagers, I'm again leaning on some excellent sprite sheets by Elthan (whom I support on Patreon).  The above characters are his "Inn Keeper" and "Builder" villagers, but they make fine townsfolk for our game.  Expect to see more townspeople in future updates!
