The project members have never stopped on this. We spent a large amount of time reconsidering the goal of the codebase, and whether we can do anything better visually.
The result has been a rework of the terrain engine over the last year, as well as some other code rewrite that we can talk about in another post.
Survival games are definitely interesting, and we think we can do something based on some type of survival, that will be exciting to play.
Keep watching this please, we will make some announcements in the near future.
