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.

Here is the latest in our new weekly Overgrowth alpha format! David himself took some time to illustrate the traditional changelog in video form.

Don't forget that you can help support us, try out our weekly alphas (such as the one in the video), and chat with other preorderers in the Secret Preorder Forum by preordering Overgrowth.


Be sure to watch it in HD!

The features highlighted in the above video are as follows (among some extra ones thrown in for good measure):

- Live update for most config settings
- Live update for window resize (only on Windows for now because of Mac/Linux bugs in SDL)
- Scripts can execute arbitrary code within each other (with Execute("$ARBITRARY_CODE"))
- Testing fighting-game camera for two-player versus mode
- Main menu javascript can save and load files (for mod tools)
- Fixed problem when live updating main menu
- Levels can have manually defined weightmap paths in the level xml

Thanks as always for all the support! See you guys in IRC and the forums.

Also, feel free to support us by preordering Overgrowth!

I'm just curious, of all the examples you could have made to show off the new script possibilities, what made you come up with lightning bolts from his eyes?

Did you just suddenly turn around and shout to your team members "HEY. What if... Bunnies shot lightning bolts from their eyes?"

Whatever it was, it was sheer brilliance. I busted up laughing, you guys always manage to do the unexpected and that's amazing for having 170 videos.

"This week, I added live update support to the config file"

Hmm.. I wonder what that'll be useful for.

"For example, if you want to make turner shoot lightning from his eyes..."

Holy ****. The 1v1 screen looks ******* great.

I can only imagine what 4v4 traditional team based modes would be like with this combat system. Even CTF in this game would be insane.

FREEEDOM!!!!!

"Sons of Scotland. I am William Wallace. Yes I’ve heard. Kills men by the hundreds and if he were here he’d consume the English with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse."
(Braveheart reference)

Well, it's not exactly a direct reference, but it does have some relevance.

Awesome! Does the one screen multiplayer actually works? This may make me preorder the game (I'll wait until is finished to buy it otherwise)
