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.

I agree with your decision about the weekly videos. It might be fun and informative for us to watch, but the game production itself is of course more important than its documentation. Also, this way the videos will become even more interesting.

Great Progress, as always but I agree on the video thing. Will you apply to the Steam "Greenlight" thing? I would love to have it there :)

I'll miss the weekly videos, but I totally understand. I hope this lets you focus on some really neat stuff that simply takes more than a week to implement.

This timestop will allow neat screenshots. Just needs a frame by frame play to allow even better debugging.

I will miss the weekly updates, but this is probably the most promising indie project currently in the works so... I would hate to see anything (including my curiosity) hinder its progress. lol.
