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.

Posted by jeffr on Aug 20th, 2012

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):

- Items can be attached to individual weapon slots
- Multiple items can be attached to each character
- Fixed memory corruption error when item connections are removed
- Fixed problem with saving and loading item connections
- Improved immediate-mode UI system
- Rebuilt linux32 awesomium to fix linux crashes on 32-bit Linux (Edward Rudd)

For new users:

If you have not installed Overgrowth yet you can use the SUMLauncher ( Forums.wolfire.com ) to download it!
If you already have Overgrowth installed you can use the SUMLauncher to update it to the latest alpha.
The SUMLauncher also allows you to install the Menu Mod ( Forums.wolfire.com ) which gives you another 150+ maps to try.

For Existing SUMLauncher users:

If the menu files were changed in this alpha, the menu mod will no longer work. Updating the Menu Mod (to re-enable custom maps) might take us a little while. Once we have uploaded a new version you can use the menu mod installer to update it. (And don't worry, it won't break anything if you try running the installer before we upload the new files.)
It may also take us a bit to update the Menu Mod to include any new maps that this alpha may have added.

For future updates keep an eye on our twitter, @SUMOGUtilities ( Twitter.com )!

Instead of killing the enemy for their "attachments", is there a option of stealth, like sneaking behind em and pick pocketing sort of?
