The Red-Footed Tortoise Live from the Amazon Rainforest
Native to Latin America, the Red-Footed Tortoise can sometimes be found around the edges of the Amazon Rainforest. However their numbers are dwindling and are now considered endangered.
In this mini experimental simulator you have the chance to explore the Amazon Rainforest as a Red-Footed Tortoise.
You will encounter another specie of tortoise, the Yellow-Footed Tortoise, as well as Iguanas, Geckos, Poison Dart Frogs, Capybaras, Beetles and Spiders. A Harpy Eagle can often be seen flying overhead.
Tortoises will react differently to you, some will be aggressive and try to flip you over, others friendly and will accompany you, while a few will be afraid and hide in their shell.
This is not a fast-moving action game. It attempts to simulate the life a real Red-Footed Tortoise, one which spends most of its life foraging at a leisurely pace. Also, please bear in mind it is experimental. If you like this, please consider donating or purchasing my Vogelkop Bowerbird simulator.
The Red-Footed Tortoise Live from The Amazon Rainforest is an experimental game, designed to try out some ideas not commonly found in video games. The idea is a to create an interactive natural history documentary. Please note, at present there is not much to do except wander around.
Major changes in this version:
- The mushroom hunt has now been removed, the player is free to explore as he or she wishes.
- The AI should be fixed, although some issues remain.
- New documentary style camera system. To change cameras, click the preview cam on the right. Left mouse button toggles zoom.
- Don’t forget to check out my new game, The Vogelkop Bowerbird, available on Itch, which has mating and game mechanics.
All animals from this game can be found on the Unity Asset Store, from the Japanese Model Designer Junnichi Suko. You can buy his full collection, including the Red-Footed Tortoise model here:
