A downloadable game for Windows

Third-person game where you play as a lion, and get to explore a small piece of the savanna.

 You can choose between a female and male lion. When male, you fight other male lions. When female, you hunt animals. 

 I filled the savanna area with a few surprises, other animals, and some locations to make exploring worthwhile. There is an autowalk option, so you don't have to keep holding down a button when moving around.

Install instructions

1. Open The_Pride_life_as_a_lion.rar

2. Run ThePride.exe

If the game does not run:

1. Engine -> Extras -> Redist -> en-us 

2. Run UE4PrereqSetup_x64.exe

3. Run ThePride.exe

Hey Queenfaith, I am glad you find it good!

Hey. I played your game and recorded it on a video. I love the idea. As I understand, it is just an early build so that you will add more features in the future. As for now, I could figure out that I can only explore the map and kill some animals. I want to suggest you add features like eating, creating a family(like sims), ways to progress, or even evolve through generations. If you want me to delete the video, let me know. However, if you like the video, I make videos for such developers like you every day. I will be happy if you subscribe. Anyway, I had a lot of fun playing your game.

 Hey Vlad, thanks for playing my game! I really appreciate the feedback. I fixed the loud music, and added a few lines in the tutorial I forgot. 

 The reason you couldn't turn was because the character can't do so from a still position. The lion needs to have momentum, be it walking or running. The idea was to make it feel more like a living creature. 

 The trouble you had with comming out in a sprint is because rather than having to hold the button, it can be toggled. Idea is to not have to strain your finger by holding it. 

 The health bar has a timer. It will dissapear if you aren't taking damage, or aren't fighting.

And lastly, another thing I forgot to add in the tutorial: by hitting Q you automatically walk/sprint forward, depending on what movement you have selected.

I made this little side project in the span of a few days. Used it as a short switch from the main game to refresh my mind. 

 I like your ideas a lot. I was going to add more AI so you can hunt together with the other lions, extra behavier for other animals, a progress from cub to adulthood, relations with other lions, but since it is a side project, I had to cut back to what I have now.

Don't worry. The game feels very fresh and exciting, anyway. I hope to see it or any of your future games improved. I created a channel list on my youtube channel where I feature channels of the game developers. You can find your channel there now. I subscribed to your itchio page, so I am looking forward to playing your future projects.

Also, I am hosting a game jam that is going to happen at the end of September. You will be able to win some money to buy a pizza for yourself. I hope you join us. The link is here:
