As you may have seen on the Wolfire YouTube channel, we just released a trailer that showcases almost everything we've put into Overgrowth so far.


Be sure to watch it in HD!

We've historically leaned towards making sillier trailers and tech demos but I think we are now at a stage where we can provide more serious treatments of the look, feel and flavor that Overgrowth will be able to capture. The mood is enhanced by the Overgrowth soundtrack which was composed by Mikko Tarmia and features Anton Riehl on the flute.

This trailer coincides with our humble application to the Independent Gaming Festival. We are pretty excited this year because we've got the core foundation of our fighting system in place (beard updates coming soon) and all the care and attention that David and Aubrey have been putting into the engine is really starting to show. However, there were a record number of games submitted to the main competition this year (almost 400) so I'm sure we'll be up against a lot of awesome games. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

What do you guys think about the new video?

All those parts where you dynamically manipulate in-game textures and the sun position REALLY got my attention there. My interest in the Phoenix engine has suddenly gone way up.

this game is getting more and more trippy as you guys develop it lol.

What'd be nice is some shrubs on that grass level, seems a bit flat IMO, needs some basic speed tree like grass.

It's neat, but your loop stops at 1:05. Just fix that please. ;>

Holy ****! Mikko Tarmia?! Amnesia: The Dark Descent (my all time favorite game) had the best soundtrack and sound direction ever! If you've got Mikko working on your game the sound is going be ******* AWESOME! My hype for this game just doubled from "yelling across rooftops" to "taking over a news station". Good Job.

The running appears wrong to me... Left arm should be moved with right leg and vice versa, shouldn't it?

I'll stay tuned =)

I love the amount of work you put into this. Its funny, when I first started seeing these updates, I thought to myself, oh, this looks cool but really wont go anywhere. Oh boy was I wrong. I love going on ModDB and seeing an OverGrowth update. You add a certain amount of personality into the videos and news which makes it great for the watcher/reader. Keep up the good work :) Cant wait to see any/all future updates!

I waiting to see some grass as well ... right now some of the areas look a bit plain

(I guess its one of those things that feels stallable because its hard to place tons of grass without a special tool being made that can "paint" grass onto the terrain ...

And then it could possibly bog down your game as well too :S ...
