What happens when accurate depiction of body-anatomy meets old-fashioned brawler style gameplay?
Find out for yourself in Drunk On Nectar’s latest Steam update!
Inspired by the Playfight system of Lifecycles Act 1, this new combat system will serve to settle various confrontations among rival species including but not limited to rival predators, competing peers from the same species, etc. This system also takes the game one step closer towards fulfilling its Lifecycles Act 2 mandate as the various parts and pieces of the puzzle that constitute the Jumping Spider’s lifestory are now falling into place.
To celebrate the first anniversary of Drunk On Nectar’s EA on Steam, DoN’s pivotal Lifecycles update was released last week on 16th November 2017.
Built at an unprecedented 0.1 mm scale and buoyed by several new gameplay systems, DoN’s lifecycles journey is officially in full swing. The first update depicts the Jumping Spider’s birth from an egg and growth up to the third instar.
See for yourself!
