Here is what is new in Overgrowth this week...
If you are confused, please read our fancy FAQ.
There is not a lot of really hot new tech stuff to show you guys because we are working on the animation editor. However, we did get some fixes in and Aubrey has included a number of new assets that we will blog about later and we have included Nimai's town "Kohlbrinia" from a thread in the secret preorder forum.
We are pretty excited about this, because Nimai just started mapping in OG a few days ago. He is a 14 year old student from New Zealand and he found us from our Steam group. After watching a portion of John and Phillip's map editor video, he dove right in and in a matter of hours, he had created a pretty hot Overgrowth village. Nimai would like to assert that he is only half done, but that's never stopped us before. ;) Also we promised we'd give a shout out to Nimai's Youtube channel.
There are many more screenshots in the secret preorder forum, and of course, you can see it in the alpha itself. I am pretty happy about "Kohlbrinia" because it shows how accessible the map editor has become and I hope it paves the way for a lot more user created content.
