Nice progress, and fun fact: You let the rabbit fall to his death at the end, next thing my eyes trail to...report abuse button XD (though I guess the rabbit's used to it already)

eva: texting slang, a contraction of the word "ever"

Moral of the story (#1): Use poor grammar and spelling. The first person who understands but attempts to use sarcasm and/or satire to slander said poor grammar will be downvoted by people who misinterpret the joke for foolishness or naïveté.

Moral of the story (#2): Be more careful when using sarcasm in purely written form. On the internet, it's usually easier to say things literally than explain yourself later.

For those that still don't understand the joke pfannkuchen_gesicht was attempting, here's an example: Hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com

I'm not sure in which direction you are trying to go with this game... The description says it's a 3rd person action-adventure, though so far after all those updates the adventure aspect remains to be seen... What you have so far looks like nothing more than a 3rd person melee combat game.

So far what i have seen is a tech demo of a (actually pretty nice) engine with rabbits and wolves, running, jumping around with some pretty nice fighting in sparse, lifeless levels, where nothing else is going on. Level design is pretty much not existent and gameplay other than jumping around, fighting and climbing, well, there simply isn't.

No offense but this is just not worth my 30 bucks, i like to be proven different though. Maybe i'm convinced if you're going to show some actual gameplay. Fighting with knives and parkouring around in a lifeless world is not gameplay.

At the current state of this "game" (it's really more of a engine tech demo) that indicates to me that you're developing an adventure. For an adventure, I'd expect some real game design, a great story, interesting characters. FYI, the prototypes of what you would call modern action-adventure games are:
Beyond Good and Evil
Tomb Taider
Assassins Creed

You could use these games as an inspiration.

So they're gonna have every gameplay element in place before the systems that support it? Nice.
I don't think you know how this works.
