"How are we doing with the next update due on the 6th of December" I hear you ask, well I'm glad you asked because it's going really well.

Update #2 is going great and we're on track to deliver it a few days early! We promised it for the 6th of December but we'll probably upload it on the fourth.

With this update you really get in to the core of the combat, every level but Chalk and Flowers has got some really challenging and time consuming to design combat. It's great fun, a little bit challenging but not too much, you're still in the first half of the game after all.

The new levels are enigmatically called Bridge over Nothing, This Seems 'Nice', Deep Down Again, Back to the Daylight and "Chalk and Flowers".

As ever you can buy Smith and Winston here or wishlist us on Steam. If you buy the game on itch.io we'll give you a steam key on our steam launch!

Here are some pictures whet your appetite:

Taking control away from the player is as important as making them feel powerful.

Looks pretty awesome. In what language are you developing this?

We're using C++ for the engine, lua for the scripting, python for the utilities and English for the chatting :)

There is some more info on our engine here if you're interested: Executionunit.com

Haha. Your article motivated me even more to make my own engine. I recently started dabbling with opengl. I'm using opengl with glut. How much different would it be to use bgfx for rendering? I'm a newbie in graphics programming.
Btw, your editor looks awesome.

BGFX isn't easy for a beginner IMHO. It's a great API but it's quite advanced and pretty low level. I'd stick with OpenGL/GLUT and when you've learned some more and are starting a new project dabble with BGFX.

Glad my blog helped to motivate you :) Keep working and you'll get there, we all start at the beginning :)
