Go with the animals-Golden!
Here's another question for you, though:
Overgrowth shows amazing improvements in environment, texturing, physics and a lot of other stuff I don't know too much about in comparison to Lugaru, though will it offer the same level of playability on not so up-to-date machines like its predecessor(though not expecting it to run its best on 700MHz PCs like Lugaru of course)

It will have substantially higher system requirements than Lugaru (which worked great on my 400 MHz G4!) It will be possible to turn down a lot of the graphical details, but it is too early to say what the minimum specs are.

<_< ----- > "Overgrowth"

If you guys go with regular characters i would probably lose all interest in this game ... animal characters are a pretty awesome ideas ... well as long as you keep away from the anime furry style and more like you have drawn

If you ditch the animal aspect because its unconventionality ... you will immediately lose my respect and interest :P ...

You guys going to get a rabbit model done? It'd be nice to see what approach you'll be taking to them in the view of an art style.

People seem to be pretty determined to call this a furry game.

So far we've been getting a pretty good response, but the "furry" knee jerk reactions are pretty annoying. Luckily most people give us the benefit of the doubt before judging the game.
