Alpha V2.5 has now been uploaded to steam! This update has a focus on some graphical improvements, additional bug fixes and improvements to the combat changes that came in last week fixing a major issue where one alien race scout ship would get into a stalemate with your ship. Check out a full list of the changelist notes here.
Indie Game garage Winner
Uncaged Studios was one of the 20 winners in the Indie Game Garage competition. Not much yet to announce aside from that but if you have a moment take a look at the other winners as well by clicking on the image below and check out the amazing other participants.
Shadows have now been added to all characters and ship objects that are placed in the rooms. The shadows should mirror what the characters are doing. As always things are still a work in progress but you can see it adds a bit to the overall feel of the game.
Previously when building rooms there was a place left open to represent doors. This is where crew members would enter rooms and interact with the objects inside. Now doors have been added that when crew members are nearby will open and react. When a crew member is no longer near the door it will of course close. The doors will get additional art passes to really get the feel and look narrowed down.
