Alpha 1.4.4 Changes



Alpha 1.4.4 is now available. This update adds a new ai director that spawns melons dynamically rather than using static spawnpoints, this should help vary gameplay (melon spawnpoints are still used as a fallback). New melon exploding sounds have been added and the hitching that occurred after opening the semi-truck start doors should be fixed (let me know if you still encounter this issue). Any feedback, bug reports, etc. can be posted in the discussion boards.

About This Game



Melon Simulator™ is a chaotic, multiplayer (up to four players), first person melee combat game. Play as a member of the Melon Inc. Containment Unit, responding to a failed melon simulation. Work with your teammates to survive the oncoming melon hoard and compete for the top spot on the worldwide leaderboards. The longer you survive, the harder it gets.

Weapons

Almost anything that isn't nailed down can be used to whack, slice, and throw at the oncoming melon hoard... katanas, machetes, paintings, melon chunks, wooden baseball bats, metal baseball bats, spiked baseball bats, planks, spiked planks, sign letters, speakers, bricks, benches, doors, and more.

Level Editor

Melon Simulator's level editor allows you to create, share, and play levels made by other players through Steam Workshop. Levels created within the level editor also work in multiplayer (if everyone has downloaded the level).

50% off during Early Access

We have lowered Melon Simulator's price by 50% while it remains in Early Access. We hope that this will allow us to receive feedback from a larger audience before Melon Simulator's final release. Melon Simulator's price will increase once it leaves Early Access.
