Here is the latest in our new weekly 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 weekly 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):

- Controller input using SDL_Joystick
- XInput path for Windows 360 controller input
- Changed config key binding system to be more flexible
- Improved procedural stance animation
- Improved AI patrol pathfinding
- Bullet uses single-sided collision again (fixes objects getting stuck in the ground)
- Added initial auto-camera option (in config.txt)
- Joystick can control second playable character if there is one

Thanks as always for all the support! See you guys in IRC and the forums.

Also, feel free to support us by preordering Overgrowth!

Great Update. I do not use game controlers, but I have some friends wihich think that this is a neat feature for every game (even vor shooter D: ). Also every little improvement to the AI is a great thing. Imo the AI currently is the thing which is most importent to get changes in the current state of the game (with every thing else I am very saticefied).
Keep up the great work and I keep trying to "sell" your game to my friends... Three guys I already made buying your game, still bout 20 to go ;)

I do not user a controller for FPS games but I still think it should basically be required even for that.

The option is ALWAYS nice to have.

"I'm thinking of adding a simple split-screen mode soon, so I can prototype multiplayer gameplay to see how it might work."

That's hardly a guarantee guys.
