Overgrowth takes place in the savage world of Lugaru where rabbits, wolves and other animals are forced to use paws, claws and medieval weaponry to engage each other in battle. Combining 3rd person adventure platforming with intricate melee combat, Overgrowth achieves a unique feel. Overgrowth also benefits from Wolfire's brand new Phoenix Engine which has been built from the ground up to allow the use of cutting edge graphics, animation, and physics. Add to these exciting features Overgrowth’s realistic artificial intelligence and streamlined control system and the result is an astoundingly immersive experience.
Blog.wolfire.com A demonstration of our new and improved ragdoll physics system. Now actual 3D character meshes are rigged to capsule-based physics skeletons and have fine-tuned realistic joint constraints. This video was recorded at a slower time step and sped up by the video editor to 60% speed. This was back when we were using ODE for our physics, we have since switched to Bullet.
