Most of the below won’t make sense unless you've played Alpha #5. What? You haven’t? WELL GET OVER TO THE DOWNLOADS AND DOWNLOAD IT THEN! (And tell us what you don’t like about it so we can make it better.)
Below is the new stuff we've been working on this month for the next Estranged release.
Oliver has revamped the start of The Outlet, and Chris has been working on a whole bunch of new materials and models for the revamped areas.
The starting area of The Outlet has had a complete makeover, featuring new scenery that ties in better with the rest of the environments.
Alan has been working on the first level, and the first character now has a beautiful vegetable patch, complete with a melon in a wheelbarrow. Beyond his place, you can find a calm stream of water that will lead you to your next destination.
It almost makes you forget the apocalypse.
Alan has also been working on rewriting the menu, working towards trying to give Estranged a less Half-Life 2-y feel. That’s not very exciting, so here’s two screenshots. It’s shiny and new!
