    an alternate corruption

    Introduction
    [​IMG]
    Warning! This suggestion is kind of massive! It spans 3 posts!
    The Infestation should have been posted AGES AGO. But the original sprites were lost when my last computer died. Very tragic, many tears, awful awful time. Everything you see (except for 1.3 related items) has been sprited TWICE. But I'm actually kind of glad I got to "redo" The Infestation because I think the 2nd time around produced much better results. Anyways...

    The Infestation is a hive colony of parasites from origins unknown. It's inhabitants seek to infect, infest, spread, and consume. It's up to you, brave hero, to put an end to The Infestation before their number and appetite suffocate and strip the world.

    Acid Burn is a new debuff exclusive to The Infestation. The player turns orange, loses defense for 2 seconds, takes damage over time (5-10 seconds), and can not regenerate health for the duration. The combination of negative effects makes enemies within The Infestation very deadly.
    [​IMG]
    Weapon Imbue: Acid Burn is a new buff granted by Flask of Acid Burn. It will allow the player to inflict Acid Burn on enemies using melee weapons for 20 minutes.

    Infested Water is the same as Unholy/Bloody Water -- sharing the same stats and function, spreading The Infestation over terrain.

    Wow.
    Just wow.
    All of it is amazing and huge in its own right. I'm going to take an hour or so to truly judge the entire thing, but by glancing over it, the amount of effort and work put into this deserves an award all on its own.
    I am amazed.

    Now this is an amazing suggestion! This is honestly one of the best biome suggestions I have ever seen during my time at TCF. You put so much work into it! Great job!
    Edit: I recommend playing all of that concept music you included at the same time. Sounds amazing when all play simultaneously

    Ok, One second. I think I need to go puke... rainbows.

    I know how much work you put into this, so I don't know what I can say about this that will make you feel better about all of it. But this is just incredible! The sprites are great, and the backstory is even greater. Remind me to come to you when I need one. :)

    I need fan art of this...

    Really good suggestion. Well fleshed out and great alternate for the Corruption.
    Just one question, what is the purpose of the first few Flatworms? They "negate/reduce" healing effects? Would that mean you wouldn't heal/heal a little bit of health?

    This is....dang.....I looks amazing.

    It gives a Metroid/brinstar-like feeling when thinking about this biome.
    The color sheme looks unique too, I would like to see some kind of preview of it :)

    It feels like a good alternate of the corruption/crimson. it has amazed me already.

    It's just a thematic quirk. The idea is that the Flatworm itself is a parasite that feeds and grows by stealing your healing (rhyme!). However, upgrading it to the Heart Burster is worth tolerating it due to the explosive healing capabilities.

    It is in and of itself a reference to the Chest Burster from Alien.

    It is for sure on it's way!

    Fantastic Suggestion overall. I know I would really enjoy experiencing this in the game.

    Items like the Flatworm sound very creative to give a great new spice to the game. Enemies like the Exarchs and Hosts sound challenging. And the boss is well designed as well.

    I believe I don't need to think twice about it. This is going in my signature under Highly Supported Suggestions. You've outdone yourself having to sprite twice for this suggestion as well as spriting for the Banners as well Izzabelle. You've earned it!

    ok, this is amazing. you've had some great suggestions before, but this is the best. this is literally the best corruption/hallow biome alternate i have seen. and that includes tobbvald's tinkering, the cyber, and the confection and sensation. this is almost better than the corruption itself, which is saying a lot, coming from me. and don't sell yourself short on the sprites, they're amazing! i can't think of enough good things about this suggestion. i really hope someone makes a mod of this. i know i'm really geeking out over this, but it's fantastic. i literally could not keep from smiling while reading this. amazing, fantastic work!
    (i really wish i had an "i approve" banner,because this defenitely warrants that.)

    oh, and you know what a lot of this reminds me of? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goa'uld#Characteristics

    Thank you! Never heard of the Goa'uld before, but they sound great. You may be interested to know that The Infestation is influenced, and pays homage to, several pop-media alien races; The Scrin, The Zerg, Tyranids, and the universe of the Xenomorph. There's a few more subtle references littered throughout -- it will be interesting to see if anyone can find them all.

    A support banner for the suggestion will be posted at a later date!

    That biome weapon is friggin' awesome! I think you would barely be able to see the details of the spear with the speed it's at :D. That would be the perfect weapon to use during invasions.

    I was a bit confused about the purpose of the flatworm for a little while but I get it now.

    You make some fantastic sprites by the way.

    This is overall the coolest biome suggestion I've ever seen. I'll be adding this to my signature soon.

    Well, fruits of hard work are trully palpable here. Yet another marvelous alternate biome suggestion from Izzabelle. I'd like to see it in game, instead of the Crimson we have right now. Idea is pretty creative and sprites are outstanding, they display the whole theme accurately. The armors are something are something I could most likely wear and Gaia Blade makes a great alternative to Terra Blade ( which is my hands down favourite weapon ), especially for those who want a more single target burst-oriented melee weapon, with more accuracy, albeit in short range. Also items related with this biome seem to favor Summoning, which is good, since it doesn't have much love, especially in early game. Just like I said, I'd gladly see this kind of biome in the game.

    I love that idea. And I would love to see it implemented, but one can only hope. It would nice to have a middle-term between corruption and crimson, especially when you see that the main enemies of such biomes can be related to diseases. The corruption is filled with insects and maggots of certain kinds, and the crimson of bloody disfugured creatures. One could associate the corruption with Protist reign, the crimson with the Monera reign, and the infection with Viruses (well they aren't really forms of conventional life at least) And I guess the acid based items refer to the viral acids? Essentialy, we could have the unholy trinity of diseases in the game: Protozoa, Bacteria and Virus. And it actually makes some sense, as Protozoa are primitive life forms (corruption was the first of the infectious spreading biome kind) and there are certain kinds of Bacteria that devour flesh and leave living beings disfigured (crimson). You have my full support.
