I’ve been working on the eighth boss for a few weeks now. Here’s the result! There’s more about the fight inside.

The fight starts with an innocuous-looking chicken in the middle of the room. The doors lock behind you and you are forced to kill it to proceed. The chicken deals you no damage and doesn’t even avoid your attacks. Like the Cuccos in Zelda, hurting it causes its brethren to attack.

The twist? After a few hits it encases itself in an egg. When it hatches again, it emerges as a giant mutant fetus with dangerously fast attacks.

The thing I find interesting is that the fighting style of the boss goes from reactive (chicken) to passive (egg) to strongly aggressive (mutant), but somehow it sort of works.
