This month, Mathias, the main 3d artist on the game left the team to seek other challenges. All art assets for the first playable release are completed and all that is left is basically wrapping up the game, debugging and some polishing. For that reason, updates will be less graphical and more technical. I’m mostly going to publish my programming changelog on tasks that took more than half a day to complete.

In other news, we’ve passed the 250k line of code mark! To put that in perspective, Quake II has 136k, Quake III has 229k, and Doom 3 has 601k [source]
