Posted by on

Hello and welcome to the second development log of Project Half-Real, the next level is well underway and should hopefully be included in the next update, while I cannot yet share all the details about where this level will take place or how it will play out, I can share some of the progress done in the base game so far.

Wear and use H.E.C.U Gear

Yep, eventually you will be able to play as a H.E.C.U, just like in Gearbox's Opposing Force expansion, each level can now use its own theme. this also goes beyond just cosmetic changes, each theme can have its own items, weapons, NPC reactions...etc, much like how regular mods work:

Additionally more work has been done on the engine and several under the hood improvements and optimizations have been made to speed up the development process, hundreds of oversights fixed, and also implemented various features that should come in handy for future updates:
