Nov. 16th Update: Short and to the point today.
The Unity 4.3 update (our game engine of choice) was released last week and one of the things we've been looking into is how to leverage some of the new features. 4.3 features a whole new 2D kit that could potentially help our efforts tremendously going forward. Unity has also introduced some new animation tools involving their Mechanim system. This is all great news because we are gonna be able to hopefully make use of a lot of this in different ways :)
There is quite a bit of new artwork that Mark and his team have been working on that I wish I could show you. At this time, he's not quite ready for me to post anything, but I'm hoping by next update, he'll be ready to divulge some of the cool stuff that has been put together.
Some of you have made it known that you would love to hear about some of the “under the hood” stuff going on code wise with the game. Our Senior Developer Tyler is now going to be posting in the SV Rewards website. So for the code monkeys out there, his post will especially be for you!
