New demo: smoother graphics, combat and lighting
I've just uploaded a new demo which includes all the graphics lighting changes that I've been working on. You can download the demo from the main campaign page - just install over the top of the old one.

New Kickstarter video with upgraded combat
I've also released a new Kickstarter video showing excerpts of the latest combat code. I've now got basic light bolters into the game. To produce the clips for the new video, I staged a massive battle over Earth - here's a preview:
Six days to go!
We're at 70% funded with 6 days to go. I have a plan if we don't get funded, but it'll make my life a lot easier if we do. This might be a good time to upgrade your pledge, or back the project for the first time. I'd really appreciate it if you do. Thanks!
Until next time,
