5 comments by jeffr on Nov 27th, 2014

Here is the latest in our new 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 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):

- AI scripts are more optimized to support more simultaneous characters
- Ragdoll physics are more accurate and more efficient
- Moved all inverse kinematics and local physics animation from engine to script
- Improved chase AI
- No disqualification for arena overkill
- Updated weapon attachments for challenges since AI no longer grabs weapons in patrol
- Increased enemy sight distance
- Cat movement is much quieter
- Improved animation retargeting
- Changed unconscious ragdolls to be more limp
- Characters drop combat stance when enemy is unseen or otherwise not a threat
- Character loading works even if simplification fails
- Enemies are alerted by collision
- Debug keys can be toggled in settings
- Improved leg IK to handle foot orientation and hip movement
- Improved tail physics and tail collision with world geometry
- Calibrated eye morphs so they can look at precise points in space
- improved ear physics, ear collision, and idle ear rotation
- better gravity on roll animation
- new walk and sneak animations
- fixed Mac text rendering
- improved vertex bone weights for all characters
- breathing animation
- new idle behavior and weight shifting
- Added seamless cubemap toggle (to fix visible lines on some GPUs)
- Softened wolf fur normals

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

Also, feel free to support us by preordering Overgrowth!

This game looks lovely. Great work! The characters remind me very much of stories I used to love called 'Tales of Redwall' so it definitely caught my attention. The screen shots are really impressive too. I'll look forward to a release. :)

May I suggest you preorder the game instead? If you do this Wolfire gets all the money (otherwise Valve gets 50%) and you still get the game on Steam. Support the indie developers! :-D
