- Added left-handed parameter
- Added DebugText system
- Added same-side sheathing animation
- Added animation for swapping weapons from one hand to the other
- Changed weapon system to array of 'slots'
- Scripts can query each others' array values

I think I'll need real life combat training to be able to play this game. Looks pretty advanced :)

"Why you smiling."
"Because I know something you don't."
"What's that?"
"I'm not left handed."

I have to say that I really enjoy the level design and the absolutely awesome skydomes. For example in the video where you show the cliffs it seems a little bit blocky but I like that synthesis of awesome landscapes and some blocky and semi-cultural elements. It gives the whole a game a mystic and mythological touch. Great great work on this!
