How'd you find Lugaru/When did you first play it?

Post by Grayswandir » Sat Oct 08, 2005 11:17 am

If this is in the wrong section, please move it, and sorry in advance.

I found Lugaru by accident actually. I was looking for a racing game of some sort and ended up on the UDev Game site...where I saw this link for an ass-kicking rabbit on a quest for revenge (A fighting rabbit, WTF?!)...I went and downloaded the most recent version and then promptly forgot that I was looking for a racing game. This is the first shareware game since BooM came out that I thought was worth paying for (no offense to the Ambrosia and Freeverse lovers, they make great games, but this, was made by one person...and it kicks ASS!!!). Damn I love this game...DIE EVIL RABBITS DIE!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

I was attending the Summer Session at Stanford, and David was my next-door neighbor in the dorms.
Man, I crashed his machine so many times - he wasn't too good at freeing up blocks of memory back then, so Lugaru would overload his RAM. *laughs*
Ah, I remember when the end of the world wasn't an invisible wall, but a sheer cliffside that led down to an invisible horizontal plane that would deal infinate damage. Heh heh.

This title is part one ...

I was looking on a major download site (fileplanet? gameshack? what was it?) for a download of Indigo Prophecy and decided to browse "recent releases" under the games/downloads/demos category. Saw the interestingly-titled "Lugaru". Fighting rabbits. Looked ridiculous. I downloaded it as a joke, thinking it would be laughable.
Was struck by the quality, which reminded me of another indie game, Mount and Blade.
Tried the tutorial. By the end of the tutorial, I was hooked. I hadn't even had a real fight yet, but the pure ingenuity and originality (not to mention brutality!) of the moves inspired me. I bought it the next day and beat it the same.

I downloaded Black Shades about 1 year before Lugaru came out, and I waited and watched the forums thinking that Lugaru was a cool idea.

I was looking for a demo of a game to try out, so I went on to, looked under games in "Action" genre and saw Lugaru. I saw it was a martial arts game involving bunnies, and was immediately intrigued. I downloaded it, was amazed at this shareware game's amazing gameplay and registered not long after.

Needless to say - it being a month later, still being severely addicted to the game - I found what I was looking for.

Inside Mac Games, downloaded it, showed it to colleagues, got laughed at and thus confirmed in playing the game, registered the game, the end...
