Crouching has a whole lot of uses in this game besides its original purpose.
It can be used to explore small openings, go under tables and other objects, create less
noise from terrain and objects to avoid enemy detection!
This intended feature is to give it some combat functionality! You can Crouch Dodge at just
the right timing to avoid most of the enemy attacks in the game.
Other attacks like projectiles can be countered by your Knife Swipe ala Resident Evil 4
which I will showcase at a later time :)
author=orochii Very cool mechanic. I guess it must be very frustrating to the zombies, knowing they're failing to the same strategy over and over again. xD
Or maybe they got rheumatic knees? Or something like that.
hah yes, let's just say they have no brains to figure it out! this mechanic will also be used to crouch under lunging jump attacks from wolves and the such, but of course the timings to dodge all enemies varies. I'm glad you like it :)
