After adding the wasteland map in the last update, I decided to work back on the tropical island map to improve its graphics and on the initial map of the game which required redesigning to fit the new gameplay.

The main work on the tropical island map was to add more foliages and more types of plants while keeping a good frame rate. This has required a lot of optimisation for the assets. Foliage collisions were also an issue since AIs were consuming a lot of UC to generate paths but hopefully, I managed to fix it by creating a smart collision system !

I have of course re-used all these optimisations and improvements for the wasteland map. Along as adding more details, I have also added more weapons and grenades to make them more easy to find during combats. I have also fixed AI paths so the aliens move more smoothly over the buildings and their environments.

There was also a lot of improvements on the destruction system of the game. The destruction of buildings and environments in the game is now more realistic, with sounds and particles effects. Some walls can be broken by any aliens while some others can only be broken by big aliens or with explosives. It is now also possible to tweak with the settings in the menu the complexity of the destruction such as how much chunks to spawn.

You can also watch the new trailer I uploaded to see some in-game action.

This is pretty much all for this update and the game contains now 3 large open-area maps, each one guided in a narrative style with subtitles and story progress ! However it is not over yet since more maps and content will be added with the next updates I am preparing for The Alien Wasteland !

Also by the way, along with the Steam autumn sales, the game is currently in a 33% discount so if you were thinking about buying it then it might be a good time now !

Thanks for reading.

Hey guys, been on the group for a while but I don't think I ever really introduced myself here. I'm Daniel (most people know me as Dan, TheWalshinator or Walsh) and I'm the project leader at Walshinator Productions, where me and my currently small team are working on a first-person psychological horror game series called ALWAYS HUNTING, a prototype for the first of which (Jacob's Story) is currently in development.
Help is always welcome and greatly appreciated, so if you are interested in helping out or just want to chat (which I'm totally fine with), feel free to send me a PM or hit me up on Skype (thewalshinator1). I'll say now that we do not currently have a budget, so paid work isn't an option right now but might become available in the future, because I plan to launch a fundraiser campaign after the prototype's three levels are completed.

I don't think it's really a problem since UDK is almost fine as it is. My only grip is that the C++ source code is locked and we are now stuck with Unreal Script forever...
