Special Thanks to DotCam and TKMaster for the majority of work on the Ocean and basic Ship controller.
Benjamin for the majority of Galleon model

Our combat and weapon's development testing in the obstacle course map.

6 sword swings, 1 block. Sword collision is 100% physical. Still more work to be done though :)

The new overture theme

Don't forget to share our page and follow us :)
