okay, it's simultaneously great and tedious. I need someone else to play this with me.
I will say it's worth the download but man it is dark souls levels of frustrating. SO EASY TO DIE EARLY and then three minutes to restart

I'll be picking it up tonight forks. Can we multi it? Or is it just leaderboard stuff?

I don't know if you can multi it! The game doesn't really explain itself well... took me forever to realize i couldn't play story!

― EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, September 26, 2012 6:08 AM (Yesterday)

i think i played this for four hours last night. The key is to beat the passel of challenges you have on point... also to keep breeding and equipping your animal once you unlock clothes. I completely missed both points and the game doesn't really push you to do that stuff if you accomplish goals out of order. The graphics are TERRIBLE, the platforming is wobbly and the gameplay goals are generally vague and confusing, the game is laid out weird, it's very frustrating and often senseless what animals you can kill (a hyena with a pomeranian?) and then the one hit kill animals the other way (never fuck with a buffalo). It is, however, really really fun and addictive once you get on the excruciatingly slow progression ladder. The RPG elements are surprisingly engaging and the threat of having to sit through an end screen really makes dying a necessary avoidance. The stakes is high.

Tokyo Jungle is ridiculous. I died 4 times doing the FIRST PART OF THE TUTORIAL.

Then I played as a deer and somehow I accidentally killed a rabbit (but couldn't eat it) and that pissed off every other rabbit in the world so they all ganged up on me and chased me through the streets.

It's definitely one of those games that goes "here's an open world, feel free to roam around! Although actually if you don't do what we tell you when we tell you you'll last all of 2 minutes". Which is a bit of a shame, but perhaps once I've gone through all those hoops and got a better feel for what it's actually about, it'll open up a bit more.

otm
i have unlocked the gazelle, the cat, the beagle and OMG the chick which is like controlling a bumblebee and instadeath
my cat is kind of a badass now. I took down a dairy cow. here's how bad the graphics are: i initially thought it was a panda.
it should be noted that everytime you breed, the game restarts with those stats... even though it doesn't tell you that!

ha, there you are.
i have now unlocked the pig, gazelle, beagle and all the cats.
I had a good long gazelle session that culminated with me being pursued for a full city block by an entire pride of lions.
AND i killed a brown bear with a beagle. Very proud.

the controls feel really good. CLEAN KILL is so satisfying. haven't had a chance to play it all that much but do the unlocks come at a decent pace?

just finished a 42 year golden retriever run before getting mauled by a pack of tosas
took down an ostrich in a one-shot kill
the unlocks are steady but it is a repetitive game.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Monday, 1 October 2012 21:51 (eight years ago) link

I fear I'm never going to have as much time as this game wants me to put into it.

JimD, Monday, 1 October 2012 23:11 (eight years ago) link

okay, i'm finding the groove now.
47 year run as a jackal; just unlocked the lycaeon.
The bottom line is that your weaker characters simply aren't going to make it very far; you've got to progress incrementally by upgrading to the next best animal game by painful game. It's a progression game and that progression is often hella frustrating. That aforementioned 47 year run was stopped by a one hit kill from a fucking AXIS DEER as I was running to mate; up till then I had every achievement up to level B. So easy to get got in this game
PROTIP: I finally figured out how to use stamina: the right joystick allows you to leap, which is akin to running. Up until last night i had been walking everywhere. Much improves the speed of the character and the game.
There are free unlockable costumes on PS store btw; go get those while you can.

OK - I'm going in - dling this puppy

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Saturday, 6 October 2012 08:07 (eight years ago) link

I think I'm over it - it's too easy to have a run that goes ok for 30 minutes then ends abruptly, not because I did anything wrong but because it suddenly decides not to spawn any prey and I starve to death, or whatever. I can cope with the gameplay quirks but I can't muster continued enthusiasm for a game that's actually broke.

JimD, Saturday, 6 October 2012 11:39 (eight years ago) link

it's not though! You just gotta get super careful at that point.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 6 October 2012 18:27 (eight years ago) link

How does being super careful stop you starving to death?

I am the one and (onimo), Saturday, 6 October 2012 18:28 (eight years ago) link

check the map; there's a breakdown of where the food is on each level so you can go where the food is

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 6 October 2012 18:29 (eight years ago) link

you can get instakilled by tough bad guys later in the game but as you get tougher and tougher animals that you play that's not so much an issue

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 6 October 2012 18:31 (eight years ago) link

I thought Jim was saying it didn't spawn *any* prey and was actually broken.

I am the one and (onimo), Saturday, 6 October 2012 18:41 (eight years ago) link

no, i think he's talking about the cheapjack one shot kills. again, the point of the game is not to win at the level you're at but to keep building until you get strong enough animals to see the challenges through to multiple decades.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 6 October 2012 19:07 (eight years ago) link

it would, of course, help if the game would TELL YOU this but that's how it plays

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 6 October 2012 19:08 (eight years ago) link

Nah, I mean sometimes all the food from a certain region will just vanish and ok, yep, at that point in theory I can check the map and go where the food is...but that often can be further away than I can travel without dying.

I dunno, maybe I'm just rubbish at it but it's not a fun dynamic either way.

JimD, Saturday, 6 October 2012 19:18 (eight years ago) link

well there's also the presents you get. A bedwrap allows you to reup all toxicity/hunger/stamina/life, there are power ups as food etc
but yeah, i can see where this is not for everyone, sure.
I just don't think it's broken per se. it just is trying to usher you forward.
Just finished a 68 year lyceon run; killed my first couple of dinosaurs. A pterodon was hunting me for a minute, then divebombed and planted it's beak in the ground, missing me. While it tried to dig it's head out, my pack and I tore it to shreds. It then promptly turned poisonous in the toxic rain. I was one-shot killed by a rambling dionychus shortly thereafter.
love this game

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 7 October 2012 02:44 (eight years ago) link

Yeah so the gameplay mechanic is v v confusing. Story mode, I play a chapter, it's pretty easy, I complete it, but the next one remains locked. Challenge mode, I play it, I do ok, I complete a bunch of challenges... but then I die and I'm right back at the beginning. No new animals unlocked, and the 'continue' option on the front screen remains mysteriously and confusingly unavailable. What am I doing wrong? Or am I just not surviving long enough? And Jim's right about the frustrating lack of food, and the enemies seem similarly fickle. The first time I had the challenge to clear out an area of alley cats I was overwhelmed by hundreds of them. The next time it was deserted. Combat is no less inconsistent, the tutorial makes it sound fairly clear when to dodge and when to strike but when it comes down to it the crucial icons appear infrequently, seemingly randomly, and so briefly as to be useless.

I think I could like this game well enough if I knew what I was meant to be doing.

I got the Boyzone, I got the remedy (ledge), Sunday, 7 October 2012 20:15 (eight years ago) link

okay, so let me address a few of those points:
you open story chapters by finding "USB sticks" within the survival game. I'm on the tenth story chapter. those USB things show up on your map and often require trucking into dangerous territory.

The only way to acquire new animals in the game is to either beat the boss animal in a specific territory or to claim a specific territory. In either case, you have to get through 20 years of life AND two generations before that option is available.

one of the toughest thing about this game is that it often gives you the option of opening a story chapter, beating the challenges you have in this time period or unlocking a new animal... but you have to pick one. it can be maddening.

you're right in saying that you can't carry animals from past generations on continue; the "continue" is only usable if you opt to save in one of the nests instead of mate. It took me forever to figure that one out.

for combat, you really should just dodge only if you get that blue fang mark or if there's a mega-attack (like the lion's claw) bearing down on you.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 7 October 2012 21:18 (eight years ago) link

i TOTALLY get that this may not be every(any?)one's cup of tea; it's a crazy, weirdly organized game and terribly capricious. I'm completely into it.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 7 October 2012 21:19 (eight years ago) link

basically, you need to struggle with it for several hours and then it opens up

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 7 October 2012 21:21 (eight years ago) link

Thx frx. 20 years! I think I was pretty close to that in my last game. Knowing how to save should definitely help.

I got the Boyzone, I got the remedy (ledge), Sunday, 7 October 2012 21:38 (eight years ago) link

it's not so much 20 years as it is that you've either accomplished or failed two challenges i think.

I never save TBH; a good playsession keeps me for about fifty minutes... one minute = one year of in-game time. I've had one run where i got all the challenges up to level B. That shit is hard! You have to plan ahead, beat the challenges fast and then head to where you're going to need to be for the next set before they even start.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 7 October 2012 22:15 (eight years ago) link

what's crazy is that they don't even HINT at all that stuff! you gotta figure it out by playing!
This, I think, is why I like the game though: it's an abstract logic problem to be solved. Dark Souls did a lot of that.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 7 October 2012 22:46 (eight years ago) link

subscribing to what everything's been said - came to this for the LOLs and after several horus of incredibly frustrating trial and error, I am now seriously addicted.
One thing though - what exactly is the incentive to breed? I'm always bummed to lose my "boss" status without any clear reward.

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Monday, 8 October 2012 12:19 (eight years ago) link

you can die from old age. there's also a status boost if you mate with average or prime females. But the biggest incentive is that you have other pack mates, effectively "extra lives" to transfer to if your avatar is killed or dies of hunger or toxic exposure.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Monday, 8 October 2012 12:34 (eight years ago) link

Ok another question: is there any way to get rid of a "desperate" female (urgh...!) or to identify her status before she clings to you?

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Monday, 8 October 2012 13:52 (eight years ago) link

Up on the d-pad for your item menu.

The unpredictability of who-kills-who really helps suck the fun out of this. Like, I should be able to see a hippo and think "hey, I bet my tosa could have a crack at that" but in practice it's not worth the risk of instadeath, the only way to play this game is ultra-conservatively and that's just not very enjoyable (yet for some reason I've still not given up on it, despite all my complaining). Still having problems with food just drying up too, it's not unusual to get a "head to shibuya suburbs" challenge then check the map only to find that it's 3 regions away, and all those regions are completely empty. At that point the game isn't even "complete these challenges carefully" but "decide which of these challenges are even feasible and if it's none, just tread water for 10 years and hope you get luckier when the next batch pop up".

JimD, Thursday, 11 October 2012 10:04 (eight years ago) link

Also, is it just me or do siblings have a lower top speed than your main character? It seems I either have to keep stopping and waiting for the rest of them to catch up, or else I can just press on and hope they catch up eventually (which is the option I'm usually forced into by hunger, and the outcome of that is usually "siblings go missing and don't come back").

JimD, Thursday, 11 October 2012 10:08 (eight years ago) link

Can't you tell the likelihood of instakill by how fast you get a red circle? or am I making this up?

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Thursday, 11 October 2012 10:57 (eight years ago) link

"siblings go missing and don't come back"

I've noticed them get trapped when I dashed up some stairs too quick for them to follow, but then they magically appeared by my side again when I got too far away from them.

ok - still completely addicted to this and actually having dreams about it - BUT I am still stuck at fucking alley cat level. When do bosses appear? It seems I only recently got, after god how many hours, the option to beat the beagle boss. How long is it gonna take me to have the option to beat zebra or t-rex boss??
Also, is there no way to speed up the game over menus? I do not give a damn how well I rank againts the other nerds playing this game today.

okay, beat the hyena stage and now have the cheetah and the bear.
They're fascinating and really change gameplay. The cheetah is a killing machine with almost endless stamina... and 15 hunger. So the catch is that you always have to be hunting and you can starve very quickly.
The bear is a tank; i finally took out a crocodile with one. The only problem is they're immensely slow and even the power hit tends not to connect. So you're constantly lumbering after small guys. You have to fight through the first twenty years just to get to a point where you can get animals that won't run on contact.

This is one of the games that supports remote play on the vita btw. So I play it in bed these days.

yeah this game is sick. it is crazy this is the first time this idea has been made into a game, it is such a good idea for a game. and it is fun as fuck.

i really like the story so far. i have only unlocked the first two animals. Pomeranian's story is so great, a day has gone by with no food, he is wearing a sweater and is hungry af. amazing.

survival is cool. is there an end goal to these? like an area boss or something that you can unlock? i haven't managed to uncover an entire map yet. it is cool how they made the world so dangerous in so many ways, it really feels apocalyptic.

is there a way to escape radiation? it was raining and the radiation level was going up so i stayed indoors. yet the level kept going up and eventually i started losing life and died. is there a way to avoid this?

Ha surprised to read back and see how much I didn't love it at the time, I've only got fond memories of it. And hazy enough memories that I can't answer any of those questions Adam, sorry.

so im unlocking items of apparel here -- "Hip Hop Bandana", "Moustache Glasses", etc. are you telling me i can be the king of the jungle while wearing Groucho glasses?

it seems like herbivores last longer between meals, which makes you play in a different way. i like the strategizing you have to do to survive, the resource management and exploration go hand in hand with the gameplay. if you are full and come upon a few plants you will want to save food sources for later, unless you want to become a Boss, resulting in a stronger overall lineage.

its a choice you have to make. not many games do that. every play has these moment by moment choices thrown at you which could each effect your descendents. you see the butterfly effect play out in real time, over and over again. this is a game about material existence.

i feel like drinking the water is what leads to radiation poisoning and inevitable death. which makes complete sense, and is kind of like, holy shit video game, getting real for a minute here. damn.

"along with Pomeranian pride, an uncontrollable urge has awakened"

holy shit this game is dropping Devo references.

What platform are you playing this on? Did they re-release it for ps4?

I'm assuming PS3 - I don't think it's got a PS4 release, but it was free on PS+ for PS3 a couple of months back.

this game remains a main reason I want a ps3
