Meet the Veggienauts

by

Sorry, New Team Name Guessing thread. It’s not the velocipedists. We’ll save that idea for a racing game.

In our original Outwitters announcement, we showed off some concept art featuring a weird little plant soldier. He was from a team called the Naturals, which was only ever playable in our paper prototype and never actually made it into the game. For our first big team pack addition, we’ve resurrected these characters as the Veggienauts.

We call their special unit Bramble, and he has the gift of the green thumb. When rooted down, he grows his own destructible thorn barriers (no spawn tile required). In our first beta build, each barrier he plants will extend his reach. This will allow him to slowly spread his way across the map like a weed, blocking weak spots, capping Bonus Spaces, or providing cover for allies moving up the field. His exact balance and mechanics will be tweaked as we test over the coming weeks, but we aim to put the new team (and its new maps) in your hands sometime late in October. It’ll be a freebie for any über pack owners out there.

Stay tuned for more updates, artwork, and hilarious delay announcements.

    Medical mushroom coming thru!!!

    I like it! Let’s see how he stacks up against the other defensive Special!

    One thing I’m curious about, though, is how his thorns will affect his vision. He could potentially spy around corners and fish around for Snipers or Bombshells, costing his opponent oodles of Wits to destroy the prying eyes.

    I also wonder if Bramble’s teammates can move over the barrier–I can’t wait to try him!

    I cannot wait. I have a feeling this will be my team of choice! Well done to you guys at One Man Left, your game is truly wonderful!

    I can already see it, in the first month after the update every body will play as Veggienauts (for über pack player) or Scallywigs (for free users). This probably will going to happened every new team pack update.

    I believe the name that we guessed was “viticulturists.”

    Excited for the Veggienauts all the same.

    I’d like to point out that mushrooms are technically not plants (by the biologial definition anyway) as they are not plants.

  15. Awesome says:

    Atsjvdc wow really no one gives a crap -_- moron. But anyway awesome team!!

  16. pookywb says:

    I give a crap.

    But also, none of these (except for the eggplant) are veggies. So we can kinda take everything with a grain of salt. :P

  17. Chris says:

    Since it isn’t really veggies, maybe they should be called the Arbornauts (arbor = plants)… I like Veggienauts, but prolly needs veggies :)

  18. Anonymous says:
