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.
New features including splitscreen for local multiplayer, cloth foley sounds for choke animation, Windows crashes write out minidump files for debugging, some angelscript error messages display call stack, added logfile.txt output, better pathfinding AI during circle-strafe, tethering ends when hit, and more!
