This was done quite a while ago and paid for. It just took me longer than it should have to close it.

The Mantanoids will be the main enemies of the game. Mantanoids are an alien race with the following characteristics:

  • A general humanoid figure, but with a hard exoskeleton rather than fleshy skin (i.e. insect-like).
  • A mantis-like head with two small antennae.
  • Generally mantis-like arms, with sharp, blade-like forearms that can be used like swords. Low-ranking mantanoids can only use these blades for short-ranged attacks, but high-ranking mantanoids can use them to block (parry) certain attacks. The arms end with small, hook-like claws, similar to bats.
  • Thin legs somewhat resembling grasshopper legs, but mostly straight like a human's legs are. The legs end with large, hawk-like feet, which include three long front toes and one long opposable rear toe, each toe having a small claw at the end. Lore-wise, these feet are used for most of the kinds of tasks that human hands are used for, while the arms are used only for fighting, climbing, and other very simple tasks.

For Milestone 1, the animations needed are:

  • Standing
  • Walking
  • Jumping
  • Swinging an arm blade like a sword
  • Blocking (parrying) with the arm blades
