The latest developer video diary. Finally finishing off physics and on to more gameplay!

Posted by on

This should be the last of the physics work for now. Over the last few weeks we've been working on new art assets. I rigged a number of old test models with physics so I could work on the UI a bit and get a feel for load/save and the flow of the game. Thankfully this means we can steam forward with the gameplay and trade/AI aspects a bit more. Valentin (new artist) has been working on some assets that will go towards the trade functionality. Will show how that works next time.

Anyway, here's the video:

As you can probably see, there are still a bunch of relatively minor things to fix. Not least some of the visual niggles (UI, tools) that are currently placeholder programmer art. Anyway, its still a work in progress so look forward to showing it as it evolves and gets more polish.


physics seem a bit floaty, which may have been the intention, but they're very nice all the same.

Yeah, its a relatively simple thing to tweak, so I've not really worried about that yet until we start putting in final artwork and such.

Glad you like it though!
