The patents, having come to life by some mysterious process probably involving corporate personhood, waste no time infesting a grand decaying mansion. There, they intend to experiment and cross-breed.
As you enter the house of patents, you find it cluttered with obstacles, hazardous materials unsafely stored, and whole libraries of dubious legal texts whispering dark imprecations. Still, if you're clever and nimble, you can use these hazards to your advantage.
Here are some of the things you will find:
Oil BarrelsWhen spilled, oil turns into slippery slicks, causing everyone to slide across. But when ignited it can make for an effective patent BBQ.
ExplosivesStoring explosives in barrels and leaving them to stand around in hallways is a time-honored tradition. You're perhaps best off not using these as cover.
Liquid NitrogenLike explosives, but with the added fun of freezing in place everyone it doesn't outright kill.
AcidAcid is all around you: in barrels, in jars, dripping from the ceiling. It sticks around too, so be careful.
Wombat Blood & Horse MeatDelicious foodstuffs for everyone. Found in barrels and fridges. Great for restoring your hit points if you're this sort of thing.
TorchesFire hot. Fire burn. Fire ignite.
Holy WaterIt's not really clear how this stuff works, but a few splashes, and you feel fantastic and nigh-invulnerable. Same goes for your enemies, so it's best you don't let them bathe in the stuff.
Unholy WaterQuite the opposite of the above; results in terrible hangover-like symptoms like decreased speed and increased vulnerability to damage, especially of the unholy kind.
Fire BeesThese creatures are less than pleased about being stuck in a jar, and will make their displeasure know to whoever's nearest as soon as they get out.
Evil BooksSparking with unholy energy, these books whisper of their dark and (of course) Lovecraftian contents. Disturbing their slumber tends to cause violent explosions.
Tables, Shelves, Beds, etc.This stuff is just in the way. Ideally in the way of enemy shots. You can climb up the side of anything by pressing against it and moving up at the same time - so to climb a table on your right, press D and W, or right arrow and up arrow.
