Euro Gamer (EGX) Update 2014
We are counting down the days to our first EGX in London, and are proud to be participating in this event. Over course of the last few weeks we have been working furiously to make necessary updates to our game in order to bring it to industry standard. We have taken all the feedback from our fans and dissected the new possibilities that we have been presented with. This article servers as a small taste of what can be expected in the new build. What follows below is a preview into what has been developed in a secret cave over the month of August. Further information can be found on my blog just click the necessary links to the relevant item to see more. If you are at EGX please give us a visit all feedback is welcome.
Introducing the Hazmat suit scientist. This unfortunate soul is some of the remains of the human race. Hazmat suit guy wonders the waste lands studying the surrounding biology in the name of science. He will provide some context into the Hive War and will even feature as an NPC. For more images and information about this guy follow this link to our blog post
Here we can see that Hazmat suit guy has discovered a new type of plant, what could this mean?
For those that don't know this new biological entity is a vital resource for the Hive War mechanic
Level assets and visual Updates
Most of our focus this month has been dedicated to giving the main level of Hive wars a face lift. here is a list of things that has been implemented into the environment.
- All textures have been optimized for HD.
- Plants and tree models added
- Spawn areas have been relocated
- Added under ground tunnel system
- New Sky box added

All these new updates have helped to create a playing field that looks like this.
