Its one month on from our last update, and a lot has happened; Crytek released their CryENGINE3 SDK; we've pretty much finished moving our work onto the new engine; and we've had new staff join us.

This is just the beginning of a hectic and jampacked few months for the team, and we'd like to have you all there every step of the way. We've got a brand new site in the works which will allow us to interact with the community better than we have before, with a brand new public forum free for everyone to sign up to - and where we'll be doing early reveals before anywhere else and offers for those who sign up and get posting on the new forums and site. We'll keep you all posted on when thats going live via our community pages.

To that end, we'll also be doing something special for the community when we hit 600 watchers, or 100,000 views, whichever comes first.


As part of our media update, we've got some further work by Sean on one of the first act's levels; "Border". As you can see, this is a vast improvement over our work on CryENGINE2 now that we've moved onto CryENGINE3.

To go with this level update, we've also got some work from Chris on the Chinook, one of the principal helicopters that will be featured in the Increment's gameplay.

Sounds good. Since you dont mention the CryEngine3 login issue when working as a team can I assume you work off a licensed CryEngine3 Version for Commercial use?

As of yet, we're having to use a bit of a work around at present. Its meant we've had to alter our workflow a bit from how we'd like to develop, but its only a temporary measure, as i'm expecting the team login/management system finished soon by Crytek - purely on the grounds that its damaging how many teams can properly utilise the SDK.
