Just a quick note here, particularly for those who have played one of those other two games. There is a slight, but important difference in the ranged hunting mechanics here - namely that guns only hold a set number of bullets (the number is dependent on the gun itself). Once used up the gun needs to be reloaded (a simple press of the R key) before continuing.
Initially Qweeg struggled with this a little - but actually it makes much more sense than being able to endless fires a gun with no regard for the size of the magazine. And once you get used to it, things are fine.
