Creatures during darkness
« on: March 08, 2012, 12:33:52 am »

Hello! First of all wow, this is an AMAZING engine, I've played for 5 hours straight just exploring and driving around and messing with it, but I'm having some very strange issues, I don't know if this is an easter-egg or some kind of joke, when I mess with the fog options or sun options to make the game darker sometimes I'll find these weird things with eyes, I don't think this is funny at all because I'm scared very easily, I had to exit the game and uninstall it after I took some pictures of them, I was hoping one of you guys could shed some light on this, it's very unsettling and I would like to enjoy this engine with out being scared out of my mind.

Has anyone seen this before?


I've attached pictures, the first two are successive pictures I took and I exited the game right after the second picture, I played a little more before toying with some fog options when I encountered the 3rd pic after driving around, I just exited and un-installed.

Ha.  You're scarin' me, man.  :P
If you didn't edit those into the photo yourself, they're probably just visual graphical bugs or glitches.  It looks like it only happens at the base of some trees?

Reminds me of the Herobrine story in minecraft. Wherever you go, someone in the fog is watching you.

And now Talisman will never play Minecraft again...  :P

Thingawanakiya are already there, even before we started coding them. Scares me too :D
I want to know how did you set the values to get it. :)

That's what I'm hoping but they move around, It's too "real"...

I re-installed and got some more pictures.






These next two are disturbing, I drove towards but the shapes moved back into the tree line, once I entered the forest again they come towards the truck and I had to ALT F4

I did not make or doctor these pictures, they're straight from the game... (They're called "Lumpmen" by the way.)

Here's someone else seeing some:http://chanarchive.org/4chan/v/38996/ok-ok-relax-just-gotta-look-around-and-get-my-bearings

Ha!  I just booted booted up my computer again because I just saw the thread and pics on /VG/ on my own.  I had my suspicions.  You beat me back here though.  OK Back to bed.

I actually read this after I created the "lumpmen phenomena", really scarily fitting.

Haha I guess I did. I just didn't want to be mean and keep it going right infront of the dev's face. I'll probably make a few more threads on /v/ if I have any more sightings.
