  • Even more Optimised: As boring as it is to say, Lunacy has undergone yet more optimization! Everybody’s favorite element of games development.
  • Music: Andrews’ awesome music is in game, now if only I could figure out how to squeeze it into the next Dev Vid without me having to stop speaking for ages.
  • Searchable Buildings: Buildings can now be searched for supplies, there’s some definite survival game flavour sneaking into this action game.
  • Close Quarters Weaponry: Melee/Close Combat weapons are in and working! To be specific a particularly nasty looking baseball bat filled with nails.
  • Lighting Overhaul: Lunacy is now lit by a mix of vertex lighting, baked light maps and my sweat and tears. In layman’s terms, it’s prettier!
  • +1 to Scenery: Cars, ambulances, new lampposts, porch lights, new hedges and some suspiciously Cretaceous footprints have been added.
  • +1 to Ergonomics: On screen joysticks are larger, more sensitive and aligned with the camera in a more constructive manner.
  • Camera Upgrade: The camera is now angled in a more interesting way, and automatically adjusts itself should buildings block your view.
  • Smoother Zombies: Zombies now animate and turn more smoothly.
  • Moar Zombies: The zombies in the suburbs have diversified into Classics, Runners, Sprinters and Crunchy Ones and been color coded for your convenience. I imagine I’ll do a post about the differences between these guys sometime soon.

Only the werewolf transformation and survivor tracking mechanics need to be done now. Then all the core bits that make up a game session are complete and focus can move in the direction of menus, journals, leveling up etc.
