Here is the new weekly Overgrowth alpha video! This week I demonstrate some new weapon features, including spear attacks and motion blur.

The features highlighted in the above video are as follows (as well as some that didn't make it into the video):
- Merging shadow decals
- Optimized spawner with added icons
- Weapons can catch shadows
- Added spear attacks and stances
- Glaive uses spear slashes
- Testing some new ambient sounds (especially on dead volcano)
- Added motion blur to weapons
- Added distinction between light and heavy cuts
- Added cut lines (like cut planes but for stabbing)
