Personally I like the idea of an antagonist that forces players to run and hide instead of charge in guns blazing or killing with a bar of soap or a banana peel to prove they're the most robust. Having to use shadows to sneak by, barricading departments, or jumping in a locker and praying they don't check it could be pretty intense. Problem is that all falls apart once it's time for the shuttle since everyone just becomes easy pickings as they herd onto the shuttle or jam themselves in escape pods.

These just remind me of Slaughter Demons+.

Honestly if these end up anywhere near as strong as slaughter demons, they've ended up too powerful.
Like, slaughter demons have super huge mobility, full heals, and are really, really hard to get rid of without lethal shotguns or similarly powerful weapons.

These should be a lot easier to get rid of than slaughter demons, and the only point at which these should be stronger/more dangerous than slaughter demons is if they've consumed at least 16 people and 3 other monstrosities.

Non-conversion loud group antag. Sounds good to me. How far do these have to go until we can see them in action?

Probably pretty far; I have the design set out, but I don't have any code or sprites done.

Like Ops, yes. We need more non-conversion group antags.

These are not on a team and have incentives to kill each other. This is not ops.

yeah people seem to have wrongly jumped on the idea its a team mode.

"0% conversion, 0% cooperation, 100% murder beasts fighting the crew and each other"

If anything it's closer to a loud double-agent than it is to ops or cult.
