Just a short update about the new wall walking mechanic we have added.


It allows you to run along any surface regardless of its angle, just like a real bug. There will be a video soon showing how it all works in game.

Wow this adds completely new dimensions to puzzle solving. Maybe you guys could also add slippery surfaces aswell.

Think about it, if the wall had non-stick surface (sort of like non-stick pans) it would make the bug impossible to climb the wall as it'll just slip down. There could be multiple possibilities.

Thanks for the suggestion jangsy5, we're one step ahead of you on that one though, it's already in the game :)

Basically we just apply a local force downwards on Glids body. There is a raycast as well which checks the distances and tags of surfaces. This only works because Glid is completely physics based though. Hope that helps.

We're not sure when a beta will be available, we will probably have one ready in a month or so but I can't really tell at the moment.
