Work for COA is almost to a dead halt right now. Not dead, just slowed while I'm in school. We had originally hoped to release the second version of the tech demo over the summer but we had a recent massive overhaul in our code. So... I do have a few new features that I'm happy to announce.
Music! Yes, we were able to get music into the game and working perfectly as of now. It won't even make it that much bigger.
We are working on an ingame language. Yes, we have taken it upon ourselves to create a language for the world of CO:A. It will help us in the ancient lore and give the universe more of a sense of being.
