Only weeks away from release, Alien Arena 2009 has received another sweet visual upgrade, with the addition of GLSL post process shaders. This new feature has allowed us to do some nifty heat-wave distortions, such as when a rocket explodes, as well as some other tricks. With the system now in place, there are a near limitless amount of fun things we can do in the future!
We've also added quite a few new maps in the last weeks, including the remake of Dm-Chasmatic, a small, "killbox" type of level that is a blast to play in most any mode. Dm-Invasion is a brand new map that is set in an abandoned city that shows the aftermath of an alien invasion. This small map is an excellent 1v1 map with a great atmosphere.
In the next couple of weeks we will be finishing everything up, and are on target for our mid-June target for release!
