Overgrowth takes place in the savage world of Lugaru where rabbits, wolves and other animals are forced to use paws, claws and medieval weaponry to engage each other in battle. Combining 3rd person adventure platforming with intricate melee combat, Overgrowth achieves a unique feel. Overgrowth also benefits from Wolfire's brand new Phoenix Engine which has been built from the ground up to allow the use of cutting edge graphics, animation, and physics. Add to these exciting features Overgrowth’s realistic artificial intelligence and streamlined control system and the result is an astoundingly immersive experience.

Physical games? Oh my, Henley, you naughty boy!

Anyway, I liked this show. Both their point of view regarding animations, and the one regarding the Mac and Linux platforms.

Wolfire is the (freshly founded) company of one of the best game designers of our days :-) I've been following his work since he first released something for the "udevgames contest" and whatever he did from that point on, it was always a few years ahead of the time, especially a little game called BlackShades.
This game will deliver. Every game by them will deliver. Period.

Guess that's the true meaning of confidence.

I couldn't agree more with TheVidmaster. The finished (though probably still WiP) screenshots look very promising!

And yes, BlackShades still kicks a**. :D

Awesome awesome awesome! :-D

Finally I get to listen to this! This is totally the best dev banter in the world! ^^ These guys are seriously the best guys to support ever, you get the time you invest into supporting them back in like pure developer love (and maybe a t-shirt ;-D). Overgrowth will be an epic game and I'm so glad I can be a part of this right now. All other games I've actively supported have lost my interest after a while, but I'll support Wolfire forever, you guys are my idols!

I can totally wait for this game to be released, can't wait for the next alpha though. ^^ <3
