To start things off, I’m an avid lover of Evolve and I run my own Evolve related website. I’ve pre-ordered and I’m in for Hunting Season. So yes I’m vested in the game and I believe TRS rocks (pun intended). So please take this as an honest critique rather than as some blatant rage attempt.
It’s my opinion (and I’m 99% sure fact) that Turtle Rock has been scrapping certain monster ideas because they feel the creatures will not resonate well with users. Humanoid type beings are something we can relate to after all whereas a giant worm is less so. But I feel this approach really hinders the creative minds at Turtle Rock and closes the door on so much potential.
The direction of where TRS is going with their monsters are, in my honest opinion, a bit on the boring side. There’s nothing new with the Behemoth for example. Just run a Google image search of the word “Golem” and you’ll see the general concept has been overdone.
I know it’s difficult to design a completely unique creature, but in the Sci-Fi genre there is a limitless concept of possibilities. I want to see downright disgusting and nauseating monsters. Okay well maybe not nauseating, but you get the idea. All I ask is that you take the notion of humanoid and discard it. Untame yourself, take the risk, and try something completely unfounded. It just may work.
