About This Game

Follow Turner, a rebel bunny rabbit with impressive combat skills in his quest to find those
responsible for slaughtering his village. Uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving the corrupt
leaders of the rabbit republic and the wolves of the nearby lands.

Streamlined Combat: Gone are the days of combo memorization and button mashing.
Lugaru uses a context-sensitive combat system to put all the moves at your finger tips. It’s
up to you to choose the right move at the right time and think your way through the fights.

Open-Ended Strategy: Each level presents you with an environment and a series of enemies.
How you choose to defeat your adversaries is entirely up to you. Storm in from the front and
fight everyone at once or ambush your foes one at a time with stealth attacks.

Ragdoll Physics: Not only does striking your enemies do damage, but so does colliding with
the environment once you’ve knocked them off their feet. Nothing does more damage than a
swift rabbit kick that sends the enemy hurtling into a stone wall.

Environmental Detail: Factors like wind direction and whether or not you remembered to clean
the blood off your knife affect your ability to sneak up on the enemy undetected.
Brutal AI: Enemies in Lugaru prefer unfair fights. Expect them to shout for back up, attack in
groups, and exploit any superior weaponry they can find.

Moddability: Turning on Lugaru’s debug mode gives you access to the map editor so you can
build your own levels, campaigns and mods. Debug mode also enables crazy cheats that allow
players to fly, have infinite health, explode enemies’ heads and set themselves on fire further
igniting anyone who comes too close.

New HD Textures: The original Lugaru has gotten a more modern, graphical makeover while still
staying true to the game’s spirit. Special thanks to Tim Soret for his HD texture pack.

This game's story can be finished in exactly 67 minutes according to my playtime. Overall it was pretty meh. Gameplay was interesting, story was a bit pulled by its hair, wolves were annoying to deal with until I realized you can jump and spin and they stop moving so you can ezy pezy backstab them lol, the actual fighting felt a bit clunky to be honest.

Overall I'd give this game a 5? 6/10. Somewhere along there, mainly because it's short, some fights are really imbalanced when it comes to numbers so you gotta be careful to only draw one of your enemies towards you or else you're screwed by 5 enemies around you continuously, I've had this game for a few years now, probably since I got my steam account or something, I actually forgot how I got it mainly because it was so long ago, probly in a bundle or something, anyway, point is that I've never been interested in playing it and today I finished it in an hour, the story at least, and I can say that I haven't missed anything interesting. I'm gonna recommend this because from the hour I spent in this game I actually hadfun.

Broken in every way on modern systems. Mouse freezes up every couple of seconds, despite constant framerate, no support for changing the resolution to anything but 1280x1024 (there's an option in the menu but it's broken and changes itself back), sound frequently glitches, the list goes on. Do NOT buy.

Wind simulation!
Knife throwing!
Ragdolls!
Stabbing corpses! (And when enemies go down, it doesn't necesarrily mean they're dead. When they die, their mouths will open! Attention to detail!)
Mods!
Wolves!
Blood simulation!
Quotes!
"There maybe mothers and children in this den...
And I'm not so sure that I care anymore." (Heavy!)
Pretty good AI!
Jeez, this game is SWEET!
I seriously recommend it.
...Wolves are hard.
EDIT:
SWEET music!
Enemies can be shaken off your tail!
Wolves have a realistic smell system! Wind blows your scent, watch the way it blows!
Neck slitting!
Sword penetration!
Crushing of spines!
Cereal-related references!
Conspiracies!
Enemies will run away when they're injured to get a friend!
Oh yeah...
Did I mention...
ROUNDHOUSE KICKS???

This game is underrated as ♥♥♥♥♥. I mean. Have you ever heard of it? No?

Well then.

This game is a hidden jewel. I can't believe it was overlooked.
Well.
Maybe because of how much skill you need for it.

This game is like fighting an actual person. You need fast reflexes and a way to take them down easy

Either if its stealth, or brute force, you need ways. And sometimes the game makes you change your tactics and get used to new ones.

And you need to be VERY calm during all of this. Spamming isn't an option.

But still. I can't believe Overgrowth is praised so much, and this is an outcast.

Lugaru is about ten percent of the most brilliant game I've ever played.

It's really, really unfinished -- the levels are piles of cubes and trees sitting in the middle of vast, otherwise featureless plains, and the story mode has nasty visible scars where all the player choice was removed -- but what's there hints at a huge amount of unrealized potential. When you find yourself paying attention to the direction of the breeze and cleaning the blood off your knife so you can avoid detection by a wolf's sensitive nose, you know you're playing something brilliant.

Or, rather, a slightly broken demo for something brilliant.

Like 7 years ago I used to play the demo every day, got a key generator and finished it after hours of raging because of those ♥♥♥♥ing wolves. Sorry David, I hope preordering Overgrowth and then buying two copies of this makes up for it. Pls no hert me.

This game is one of a kind. It has solid gameplay and is actually pretty brutal, emotionally. It still stands as one of my favorite games. Can't wait for the newest installment Overgrowth. Keep up the good work David Rosen.

A very fun little game. Don't expect a detailed story or anything like that, but it's a great game with a bit of a challenge - for those who don't mind the dated graphics.

Worth checking out its sequel currently in development, Overgrowth.

So I downloaded this in a fit of boredom the other night, having acquired this game in the first Humble Indie Bundle. I'd heard a bunch of negative responses to the game, with implications that it's some kind of "furry" sim. That's not the vibe I'm getting at all. Story-wise this game is a pure revenge tale that grows into story about betrayal and conspiracy. But forget about all the fluff for a moment and let's take a look at the meat of the game; The combat system. This is Batman Arkham Asylum with the difficulty cranked up to 11. And that's on Lugaru's Easy mode. The reversals and context sensitve hand -to-hand and melee combat feel very much like a prototype for Rocksteady's Batman games. But you won't find enemies timing their attacks for you here. They will gleefully all attack at once, pounding your rabbit head into a sticky paste. Timing, stealth and smart response are absolutely necessary for success. If you want a great 3D brawler then this may be your game.

Holy **** it is so good!!!
People are saying it is outdated - it was made in 2005/2006
They say the combat is unrealistic - that makes it more fun...
There is a level editor - but it's kind of hard to find
You can install mods

Don't play this for the story - play it for the ~12 different challenges on insane difficulty >:)
