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!

Wow guys, offering the Lugaru game for free to advertise this game is a great move by you! Shows that you're not money-grabbing whores for one (as are the majority of game companies nowadays, it seems)!

I'll be sure to tell all my mates about Overgrowth - and I'll be sure to play Lugaru for everything it's got, lol.

I just downloaded and played the demo, I actualy love it, it has a gripping feel to it, damn you people using the slaughtered family hook! :)

Ofcourse there was one thing that I'd liked to have been in there...
Wall-runs! Do you guys think you could add a parkour/freerun movement style, it doesn't have to be the primary style of move, you just have to be able to switch to it, like in assasin's creed.

Other than that, I enjoyed it very much, espesially the fighting.

I Can't wait to see what this game will be like! Good luck all!

I'm pretty sure he was referring to part one of this game(Lugaro, thats the correct spelling i hope). The "Slaughtered family" happened in that game and mentioned "cant wait to see what this one is like" tells that he has not played Over Growth yet(meaning there is no Over Growth demo yet).

If you preorder Overgrowth ( Wolfire.com ) you get access to a very early alpha though.
