You escape pod just crash landed and you must figure out how to survive and defend yourself against all the creatures lurking in the shadows. Hopefully you can stay alive long enough to try and escape or rule this world.

Last night our Testers showed off the coloured lights that will be in the next patch and we also wanted to share it with all of you as well! :)

We are hard at work on the next patch due for release soon and among the updates are the cool coloured lights featured in the images below. There are tons of variations to choose from and they make for quite the cool looking base.

Let us know what you think and stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming patch!

Did you use pchan fork for gfx and shaders? Or is that all done with simply blending? It look awesome i gotta say.

Simple image maps with multiple pre rendered light colours on one sheet which then generate their light based on RGB multipliers etc :) all gets compressed to TEX so the mem usage is very small and does not require special blending code putting control of the lights on the art side :)
