Adding a large feature like an endless map has it's drawbacks when developing such a game like Grave Complex.  It means I have to handle a lot of extra 'what if' scenarios.  Like what if the base goes off the loaded chunks?  Will it load back correctly?  Guess we'll find out!

Bit of a short week, but here's a quick video showing off day and night cycles in addition to adding zombie pathing back in!

Looks intriguing. Are you the "tower" in the tower defense gameplay? From what I have seen so far, it seems primarily building a maze to force enemies into choke points rather than building a whole bunch of structures that shoot things.

Yes, certainly the player will be like a tower; the primary towers are going to be trap based.  Other towers could potentially be other survivors (npc's) that will hold a location for you for a short period of time; I haven't decided if that ruins the mood of the game yet though  Smiley.  I don't imagine there will be a lot of "tower's" in any given defense but time/testing will tell I think.  I need to see what each platform can handle.

What's a survival game without water?  Quite dry... ba dum cha....

Seriously though happy to have this roughed in.  Looking at getting zombie swarms back in again, going to have them attack at night.  It's been done before but it does seem like the logical thing to do.  *shrug*

Last time water, this time food!  Except for the vegetarians among you... you'll have to wait for another update.

Still a work in progress but here's a sneak peak at the new interface I'm working on Smiley

Exciting stuff, a few bugs yet but most of the HUD is up now.  Still some work to do on it but it's coming along.

I updated the build system to allow for some more sophisticated buildings.  Additionally swiping left or right will now rotate the camera!  The minimap still needs to take the rotation into account.

A few more features yet and I'll be starting the alpha tests.  Seeing as I had to re-write a number of subsystems a lot of the core functionality had to be revamped as well.  That's mostly done now!  Whew!

Testing out lights and started work on zombies swarming at night!  

The lights will play a fairly major roll in the game so they are kind of important Smiley.

I'm a little concerned about having too many point light in a scene at a given time on mobile.  Anyone have experience with this?

Zombies are still a little stupid... for zombies that's saying something!  Starting to really shape up though.  The zombies will first seek out doors now.

Updated swarm mechanics, definitely smarter now.  Can now loot zombies after they are dead.

Alpha Status: I have a few more minor features to add, then a few general fixes and it will be up and ready for testing.

Better keep those lights on.  How else will the zombies know where to go?

Seems to give a good idea of where the zombies will path.  Anyone know how I might improve it?  I would like it to be a bit less cluttered.

Added some variation to the ground plane just to see how it would work... result?  I like it!

Also got the compass tracking up and running.  Wizard

Quick clip showing progress over the last couple months.  Pretty cool how far it's progressed.

I've been working on the animation system lately.  Trying to get it streamlined... and to be honest make some sweet jumps.  Enjoy!
