Species Hunt (Frib, 2012) – submitted to Ludum Dare 24 (August 24th-27th 2012, 48 Hour Compo Entry).
Species Hunt! A game where you have to shoot birds! With a camera!
Enjoy a peaceful stroll on the beach while snapping some exotic (Ha! I mean common) birds. Try to take the best photo ever! Or fill up your collection of new species you have personally discovered, then name them after yourself! Or just enjoy the view and watch the birds muck about.
Requires XNA 4.0. Should work on most machines, but if it doesn’t, let me know and I’ll try to fix it ASAP!
Controls are editable in-game. But a quick rundown:
Move with WASD/arrows
Equip camera with RMB
Take picture with LMB
Show/hide photo album with tab
Run with shift
Zoom camera with Q/E or mousewheel
Photographs taken in-game can be saved for use outside the game. Simply click on the photo in the album, then save to disk. You can also enable autosaving every new photo taken automatically in the options menu.
