Uberdark Alpha 37 Changelog

Hey again,

Here's the changelog for Alpha 37 -- big changes this time around are the sound and music system, first round fluid simulation, and a much faster terrain generator (allowing for larger maps).  Anyway, there will certainly be bugs in all this, so please use the forum for any glitches you notice -- especially sound/music since it's only been tested on a couple systems.

Another big change is the way torches are done -- they're now part of the terrain, and that paves the way for new things in the future (try the g key -- only temped in, but looks like it'll be fun!)

Oh yeah -- view distance should now be increased dramatically too -- still some issues, but overall think it's an improvement

Little News First

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to say that the new alpha (37) will be out in a few hours -- want to put some more touches on it yet.  In the meantime though, here are some new concept drawings for the Goblin that Adam and I did -- nothing's final yet, so if you have thoughts, feel free to share 'em.

Also, Ian from Verbal Processing did up a new video for the 37 version...

And Thomas did a new video as well... (apologies -- lost the link)

Music! Art!

We now officially have music!  Brennan Anderson ( has agreed to compose an original score for Lords of Uberdark -- and the first track (Overlands Day) is ready for action!  Give it a listen (audio player is below)...  The in-game music system is also underway, and should allow us to smoothly transition from one theme to another depending on the circumstances...  So when you go underground, it'll slowly switch over to the underground theme.  Same thing when Night falls -- that's the idea anyway.

In other news, Adam Laurie ( has also joined our art team, recently finishing some fantastic new concept art (only a smidgin of which is shown below) -- and Cody is still working on some other secret projects.  Anyway, hope this will tide you over until the next alpha version is ready (which will include working-ish water)...

Also, if you're logged into Facebook, please click the Like button so Adam and Brennan know you like their work!

PS -- If you're just coming here for the first time and wondering how to try the alpha version, please check out the website
