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 spear throw, thrown weapons penetrate farther, spear run and threat animations, spear sweep attack, spear active block poses, added spear to arena, fixed block flinch mirroring, fixed flickering weapon problem, improved weapon-line ragdoll impulse, added reaction override system so weapons can have specific hit animations, and more! - More informative error if data folder is missing - Added detail_objects config toggle to disable grass and similar details
