    Nice music.

    The game really has that dark and scary feel, just like a horror game has to have.

    Survivor AI seems quite dumb. Most of them get killed before they even see the Lost One.

    Lost One AI randomly moves around in the same places. It's quite unlikely that it visits any corners.

    Suggestion for survivor AI: Make survivors run from the lost one if they get too close and are on a higher or equally high terrain(When it's likely that they are seen). Alternately it's possible to make them run when the lost one acquires a target. Atm they mostly run straight into the Lost One or in parallel with it, which is just dumb.

    Suggestion for the Lost One AI: Place points on the map and make a trigger that randomly tells it to attack-move to those specific points. It should also have an order comparison in the trigger, so that it won't randomly change course. Why? Because if the points are placed well, then the Lost One will likely visit random places, instead of mostly running back and forth like it does now.
    This would make the AI a lot smarter.

    Overall it eventually got boring(AI is too dumb to play in singleplayer). However, this is a promising map.

    It would be nice if there were items and more abilities, but that's probably what you'll add in the future anyway.

    I'll probably get some help with the AI for the next version, I'm not exactly the best with triggering AI xD. But your idea seems like it'll be good, I'll see if I can trigger it. If not I'll try and get help. (If you know how, it would help me a ton XD)

    But thanks a lot for the advice! Yeah, I'll eventually add items and more abilities, I just need to think of some ideas that won't break the game or make it too rigged for the survivors.

    All that I've suggested is relatively easy. Even a basic triggerer can do it, once they know how.

    How-to
    For the survivor thing, there is actually a trigger event that says "Unit acquires target". So you could use that and then get the target unit(either named like that or by checking the target of current order).
    You'll need 3 points.
    Location of survivor
    Location of the Lost One
    Polar projection from the location of the survivor and away from the lost one(you can do that with angle between points)

    The Lost One thing is easier. Atm as I get it you have a periodic trigger that orders it to attackmove to a random place on the map.

    My suggestion is that first you place some regions(rects) on the map. Those represent the points that the Lost One might try to go to.
    Then in your initialization trigger(or any trigger that runs before the lost one starts moving) you need a location array.
    You set the Location[1] to centre of your first region(rect)
    Location[2] to centre of second and so on..

    Then the movement trigger.
    It's periodic like the current one.
    There's one condition(current order of the Lost One is not equal to attack/attackmove(they are the same order(attack)))
    Then there's one action.
    Order the Lost One to move to Location[random integer between 1 and nr of locations]

    It might all sound complicated, but it's actually quite easy.


    Since my philosophy is that everything must be told and shown, then a simple test map is attached.
