Cavemen Waddling - 25th May

With the Buffalo done I am now working on the last mob of the game, the cavemen. These guys appear mid to late in the game on the other side of the island. Each one will start with a spear and when near the player will stalk them, and when close enough throw their spears. After this they will flee. Whenever a caveman starts a hunt they will attract other cavemen nearby who aren't hunting themselves to gather around.

The hope is the novel interaction of a enemy that attacks at range, gathers more over time but runs away after a failed hit will provided interesting encounters.
