It is so nice to see how you develop the ai and what are the reasons for what. Even if I am not a developer it is such a nice feeling to know some tiny pieces about how what works in a game and how long it takes to reach that and what steps it takes to finish this.
I love it because it helps upcoming dev's like myself see how the pros are doing it, i love you guys indie dev's always put their heart in soul into something.
That jump prediction thing looks pretty awesome. I think it would be cool
to mess around with that by itself. Could be great as its own game mode
as well. Anyways, love the progress you guys are making. Really innovative
and interesting. Love seeing each update. Looking forward to release!!
ir really looks like a promissing 3rd person mode. platform exclusive maybe :)
Time to make an Overgrowth RTS.
Really loved learning about the jumping, really intresting how you guys come up with such AAA quality stuff in such a small team/time.
Who else thinks that the rabbit looks ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE when he makes that reeeaaally long jump?
There are just so many possibilities :/ I want to use this engine to create a game/mod .. NOW!
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? NO! It's a rabbit!
Excellent update as always.
I always love these insightful vid's! Thanks!
Great video! Making rabbits jump all over the map at a click of the mouse looks like fun.
im so glad someone is finally addressing the ai situation in their game.
Hulk is proud!
I was just wondering. Is this available as a podcast on itunes? If not, it should be.
That is a pretty neat idea!
