The team really stuck to their guns this week to produce a new version that is jam-packed with new features. Uemeu now has a particle system, play-mode avatars, new terrains and lighting effects, and you can definitely see the difference in the screenshots!
New team-member Marlon chose the theme of "War Machines" and Rachel set the scene with a replica of an M1 Abrams tank, smoking fires and crumbling buildings.
Check out Rachel's blog post with before and after shots to see how amazing the new feature set really is: Bit.ly
The team also got to play its first real "game" inside of Uemeu when Stathis set up a soccer (or football) pitch in
the middle of the battlefield. The new avatars were able
to kick a hand-grenade around the field and try to score a goal past a massive battle-camel.

This week we'll be gearing up for version 0.08.0 Hornet, in which we expect to address a lot of bugs and put some polish on the new features.
