1. who's dead? in other words who's berried in the tomb?
I think you are taking the word tomb too littoral. While it is true that
the word tomb suggests a grave of some kind that is not always the case.
The Tomb Raider series of games by Edos Interactive often uses the word
tomb to mean any kind of underground laberenth that needs to be explored
weather it is a grave site or not. The Tomb Hunter games that I am
creating uses the word tomb likewise. It just means an underground
laberenth where treasures and special items are buried in this case.
Although, since there are skeleton warriors in the game, they are a type
of undead monster, I'd suppose they were the people who were buried
inside the tomb. Since the game takes place in Greece perhaps the
skeletons are undead Greek warriors of some kind?
2. is it possible to add a feature in the game where one can step over the
Yes, but why? I think it makes more sense and is more interesting if you
have to slay the undead creatures in the tomb, such as the skeletons,
rather than walk over their bodies.
3. does the tomb look like the ancient tombs of bible times?
No. All of the game levels are completely made up. They were not meant
to represent any actual layouts of a tomb. Just there for fun and
Even if i did use an actual tomb in one of my Tomb Hunter games it would
all have to depend on who's standard of tomb building I'd need for the
game. Just because it may have been constructed in biblical times
doesn't mean much. Every culture in the world had their own style or
standards for tomb building. That's one of the things that makes
archeology so interesting. In a way an ancient civilization's tombs
were a work of art. Definitely a lot more creative and interesting then
what we do today.
4. what about a tomb stone. the game voice could read at some point what is
written on the tomb stone.
Well, ancient cultures didn't use tombstones as we understand the
concept today. The concept or idea of tombstones is a much newer burial
practice then the time in which the tomb was built. Tombstones have
their own superstitious origins attached that have nothing to do with
ancient Greek culture.
5. how about a feature in the game where the player can knock down tomb
stones such as in ESP pinball classic?
Umm...Aren't you forgetting Angela Carter is a trained archaeologist?
Archaeologists as a rule don't intentionally vandalize tombs and destroy
ancient artifacts. They'd be the least likely to knock down and destroy
tombstones for the fun of it. Smile.
7. please describe how a harpie, centaur and cyclops looks like?
Centaurs are half-man half-horse creatures. Their lower half is that of
a horse, and their upper half is the body of a man.
Harpies look more or less like women except they have wings like a bird
and sharp claws on their hands. Some descriptions give them birdlike
heads too, but it all depends on whose telling the story or drawing
pictures of them.
A cyclops is a giant man with one eye. Instead of having two eyes like
we have he has one big one where a normal person has two.
