Hi y'all again,
Just wanted to share some of the artwork Cody has done leading up to the next Alpha (which I'll post in just a minute for backers)... Anyway, I think it's awesome, so please give him a round of applause on a job well done!
Ian from Verbal Processing was kind enough to put together a little video, and since it's almost Monday
Oh, and to anyone else who has been wanting to make a video, feel free to do so.
Just wanted to let you know that I'm planning to put out the next Alpha on Monday -- it'll feature our first monster -- kinda hacked in there for now, but it'll work. It also features cube block plopping and better terrain textures... Framerate should be vastly improved on some systems too (hopefully, anyway).
Would also like to mention that the official Lords of Uberdark forum is now up and running at www.uberdarkforum.com -- it's not pretty yet, but we'll get it whipped into shape sooner or later.
Just wanted to give y'all a little update on Uberdark -- got it compiling and running under Ubuntu Linux last week, and have the fluid flow stuff working a lot better. Cody has been grinding away at models and textures (a few of which we're keeping secret until next release), but in the meantime, here's a sneak peek at the Bed and Furnace objects he's come up with.
Also... For those of you who missed the Kickstarter or who had trouble with the Amazon credit card system -- the Lords of Uberdark website now has a PayPal system setup.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that there's also an Interview on Nerd Age, if anyone wants to give it a read.
EDIT: For anyone who's been wondering about making videos to post on the Internet -- please go right ahead.
Anyway, that's about it for now...
