wife not moving

I just saw a strange behaviour of a wife. I was trying to rob a house, when I realised I could not kill the wife, having only a club left in hand. Having killed a bunch of pitbulls, I decided to kill the daughter (I could not see the son) so at least the dogs would remain dead. So I went in sight of wife and daughter, dodged them and followed them towards the exit (I was just behind the aughter). Once the wife got out of the house, I clubbed the daughter near the welcoming mat and got out. But when I came back 1 minute later into the house and got again in sight of the wife, she did not start moving.
(this was in D.W. Forsythe's house, about 15 minutes ago)

I was moving left/right in that position:
XXXXXX
X0       
X  XXXX
XSXXXX
XwXXXX
X  XXXX
XXXXXX

X: walls; 0:me; S:shotgun; w:wife "stucked"

Any idea what happened?

Re: wife not moving

When their path to the door is blocked by a human body, the remaining family members do not move anymore.
From a technical point of view, they cannot walk on the body => there is not path to the door => they stay where they are.

Re: wife not moving

Ah, I see, thank you. That makes a cheaper way to kill the wife: club a kid so that it blocks the escape path, then come back to club the wife who can't pick up the shotgun anymore smile

Re: wife not moving

That was my house! I wondered why my wife did not take the shotgun when I watched the tape.

Re: wife not moving

Even more funny is that I was so shocked that when I wanted to leave, I opened the door hiding the only pitbull I hadn't killed smile
