A status update on the codebase, a look at our next Work In Progress character model, a call for beta testers

Posted by on


Flux has made great strides lately with the port to Scratch SDK. We now have fully predicted, lag-free animations over the network, which is a far cry from our previous builds where anything over 100 ping experienced lag.

Phalanx Character Model

Face-off in the village Phalanx Work in Progress

Audi has been making exceptional progress on the Phalanx redesign, as you can see from the screenshot on the left. The original is pictured on the right. He still needs some texturing and finalizing in Z-Brush, but he should be finished in time to be implemented with the new build of the codebase.

Beta Testing

We're going to be pulling more testers into the fold as we tune the mod more and more towards being as user friendly and accessible as possible. Therefore, we've opened up our Steam Community and are asking anyone interested in playtesting Berimbau to join up. We'll be inviting players directly from the Steam Community to test the game.


Mod of the Year

Of course, the 2008 Mod of the Year is in full swing. If you like what we're doing, and want to support us in our endeavors, please follow the included link to our profile and give us a vote.

You got it wrong, the new Phalanx model is the picture on the RIGHT, not the LEFT. =P

That said, excellent news, I'll be sure to try to get into BETA.
