Here is the latest in our new weekly Overgrowth alpha format! David himself took some time to illustrate the traditional changelog in video form.

Don't forget that you can help support us, try out our weekly alphas (such as the one in the video), and chat with other preorderers in the Secret Preorder Forum by preordering Overgrowth.

Be sure to watch it in HD!

The features highlighted in the above video are as follows (among some extra ones thrown in for good measure):

- Detail object layer tags saved with level xml
- Added 'double-sided' flag to objects
- Fix for imposter stipple transition
- Added generic GUI with Angelscript interface
- Added for full-level scripting
- Improved ReadCharacter Angelscript functions
- Moved music selection and victory check to level script
- Improved self-shadowing with slight blur
- Fixed shadow swimming by locking shadow movement to texel increments
- Script globals saved and restored when reloading scripts

Thanks as always for all the support! See you guys in IRC and the forums.

Also, feel free to support us by preordering Overgrowth!

Ah yes... Making the code easier to manipulate. That's a really good thing all programmers are advised to do. Even if they didn't use to do this in the past, they start doing it sooner or later.

Looks great, guys.

Got any goals for what must be included when Overgrowth is hitting beta?

I realize others may have asked this before, but:

Will there be a demo when the game is complete?

Probably. I don't see any reason for it not to happen.

It all looks great! But some of the animations are a bit offputting for me. The jump in particular, how his hands go really straight, looks a bit weird. :/

Apart from that it's looking fab!! :]
