I’ve come up with a really awesome ( I hope you will agree) idea for a new game mode, inspired from Meg’s horror experience on Factor.
So first of all, it’s going to basically be a reversed Hunt.
SECTION A : BASICS
- 2 or 3 stage one monsters that have to catch one or a small group of hunters. Well… runners now.
- The match ends when either the runners are dead, or the dropship rescues them. (And this is going to be detailed in section B of this post).
-The monsters cannot evolve in this mode, but there are still normal mobs out there to give creeps to the hunters.
-For a more creepy atmosphere (come on, we are fighting Monsters) everything happens at night. In fact, it would be so awesome if the runners would have to rely on their flashlights alone to see, and the monsters have almost pitch black vision, rellying especially on Smell, which will grant them temporary shadowy vision.
-Each runner is equipped with Hank-like shieds. Depending on their number, the amount of shields will also vary. (E.g. lone runner- 2. Shield layers + hp).
-I have not decided yet if the monsters can or cannot be killed.
SECTION B- GOAL AND GAMEPLAY
So for this, I have 2 main ideas.
- Timer dependent match. Essentially, the match and the destiny of the runners depend on time. For instance, a match can be no longer than 5 mins, time required for the ship to come pick the runners up.
- Point A to point B retrieve matchmode. So essentially in this version of the mode, the runner/runners have to get from the start point to the pickup point. But there is a catch. They have to retrieve pieces of scattered data/tech/info OR survey ground anomalies (more specifically, stand their ground for 30 seconds each in 3 areas of the map ).
I think that the best way this mode would turn out is having it like this:
-4 hunters in pitch black, flashlight sight only
-3 St 1, unable to evolve, blind, Monsters, which --could see only through smell.
-Point A to B match type.
I hope you find this idea as interesting as I do. Let me know what you think, and every new idea or improvement, even critics, are welcome !
