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 Overgrowth alpha video log! This week features an epic AI team brawl.

Posted by on

We are trying out a 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):

- Added character teams
- Added wolf claw slap attack
- Added thrust punch attack
- Added haymaker hook punch attack
- Much faster ragdoll physics
- Much faster character logic and animation for NPCs
- Character spawn points always visible in editor
- More accurate arm and leg physics
- Tweaked bone weights so hard armor doesn't stretch
- Framerate cap for main menu and load screen (prevents GPU problems from 1000+ fps)
- Ragdolls go to 'sleep' faster (stop using CPU when they stop moving)
- Temporarily disabled rigging editor
- Fixed center of mass bug (caused wolf collision errors)
- Animations can override soft bones (needed for crisp punch animations)
- More script comments by Endoperez

Feel free to support us by preordering Overgrowth!

Quick question is it really nessecary for the NPC charchters to generate the slowdown effect i mean , its nice when just the charchter does it but this way it only seems to unnesecarilly slow everything down way too much , and the sound effect gets abit annoying then

The wolves' fighting technique is really quick, almost like the rabbits - they even use their feet a lot.

So, in the campaign it will be Turner and his allies vs. the Rabbit Gaurds who will be vs. Turner and the Wolves, who are vs. the Rabbit Gaurds and Turner.

Can we expect any backstory etc. to how this war started between the Wolves and Rabbit Gaurds? Of course, Turner doesn't need any explanation to why he needs to fight them.

This could've easily been titled, " 101 Ways to Get Spanked " ! Great presentation.

Interesting update as always. The animation and physics improvements look terrific, as do the additional attacks ( love that wolf claw slap ! ).

The wolves look pretty awesome, though there wasn't much actual death going on. WOLF CLAW SLAP!
