With much progress made over the past few days with our switch to First Person, I released the first picture of Raw F.O.X(which can be seen by clicking the images) that showcases gameplay. It's a very early version of the HUD and guns. Many things will change over time. I'm going to start working on the GUI skins and add them in instead of using the default GUI. I finished implementing all of the weapons. Some still need work with animating and culling. But most are ready for use. I'm going to also start working on ammo drops which will be placed throughout levels. I finished typing out the script to get the ammo pickups working. I also got the blood splatter and health regeneration working. I'm pretty sure everyone knows what that is. I fixed a couple of bugs in the game. One of the major bugs was that the guns would spawn sideways instead of straight out. It was a problem with the Gun Bob script that made it do this. The other bug is the inability to use the mounted MGs on the bunkers in the mission "Chilled To The Bone". I forgot to add colliders to these because originally only enemies were able to use the MG. The MGs will probably be useless because by the time the player is able to get on it, all of the enemies will be dead. The final bug was the instant death collider on the water killed the player before he/she collided with it. I still need to finish typing out the spreadsheet for the mapdata on the Multiplayer. The Multiplayer will be worked on more after a few missions are completed. I plan to release a Dev Vlog sometime this week to keep trackers updated on the development video-wise. ALPHA 3 has been delayed because we ran into these bugs at the last minute. So Alpha 3 will most likely released this week. Sorry for the inconvenience. We got a lot of questions about it.

My goal is to release the game by the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013. When the game gets finished depends heavily on your feedback from playing the alphas, so please comment on them! We're still trying to hit our IndieGoGo goal of $800! Let's keep going! A pledge of at least $30 will get you access to the closed multiplayer beta! A pledge of $60 will get you and two friends a copy of the game when it's released! Spread the word! HELP ME RAISE MONEY FOR RAW F.O.X: IndieGoGo. The IndieGoGo project will help fund the game's development, production, PR, and publishing. I intend to release Raw F.O.X on Steam and/or Desura, but I can't do it without your help! Thank you very much!
