    Coffee Diary - June 2024

    Hey Exanimates, Since updating the test branch we've been doing a lot of tuning and adjusting things, the extensive changes to the core physics affected a great many things, and while absolutely a huge fundamental improvement, a lot needed to be updated to take advantage of this, or even...

    Coffee Diary - May 2024

    PHYSICS 2.0 We recently re-wrote a lot of our physics engine and optimised it for 64 bit, in the process we also made big improvements to collisions and some complex interactions. This has been in testing for a while now, and of course everything physics came under a lot of careful scrutiny...

    Coffee Diary - April 2024

    We've been testing the many changes to the game and our engine with insiders this past month, which especially considering the extent of the changes to engine code, has gone very smoothly. It all seems very stable and we didn't really run into serious issues, though some proved tricky to fix...

    Coffee Diary - March 2024

    This has been a month of mostly wrapping things up and getting them ready for a release. There have been a lot of important core improvements that affect the entire game and content, so we want to get the game in testing and updated before moving on to other things. This includes the switch to...

    Coffee Diary - February 2024

    For this month's diary Madoc made a video again. We mentioned previously how we hoped to use more performance for more and better physics, and this is the result of those efforts. This gets a bit technical, but we think real time physics isn't a very widely understood topic that needs a little...

    Coffee Diary - January 2024

    Last month we mentioned we were migrating our entire engine, game and tools to 64 bit, as we really don't need to support 32 bit anymore and this gives access to practically unlimited ram and many big optimisation opportunities. This was a massive undertaking as our engine uses a lot of very low...

    Coffee Diary - December 2023

    TERRAIN IMPROVEMENTS Last month we briefly mentioned we wanted to improve terrain and our tools. There are more improvements we could make, but this quite large body of work is done now. There's a lot to cover that's not easy to explain, so we recorded a quick video to show it better...

    Coffee Diary - November 2023

    Hey Exanimates, Welcome to our first monthly coffee diary. Until now we posted a weekly dev diary on the forums, talking about what we're working on and how development is progressing. We're switching to this monthly format now, and going forward we should be able to make these more interesting...

    Coffee Diary 9/10/23

    Hey Exanimates, The update has been in testing for a couple of days and it has been going well, most issues reported so far were content and other minor issues that were easy to fix. We've already patched the test build once and we'll keep testing and monitoring things over the next few days as...

    Hey Exanimates, It's been a hectic week putting lots of final touches on new content and features. We added various scripted interactions leveraging new features, fully implemented the main method of Potential acquisition for Unknown, some mechanics for new secrets, a new special item ability...

    Coffee Diary 25/9/23

    Hey Exanimates, Everyone including Madoc is just working on getting the environments and items for the update release ready. This is all that's really left to do now so this won't change until the final insider test at least. We managed to solve our most pressing problems with character foot...

    Hey Exanimates, We're getting closer to having all the new content ready for the update, some work is still being done on the new level, some updates to the 3rd level and new items in parallel. We expect to have a release candidate for insider testing within a couple of weeks, and hopefully...

    Coffee Diary 11/9/23

    Hey Exanimates, We are mostly finalising some of the more unique assets that appear in the new content right now, even Madoc is taking a break from his regular work to help with getting these assets ready. We should be pretty close to the full insider test now, and some final touches can be...

    Coffee Diary 4/9/23

    Hey Exanimates, Work continues on getting the new content ready for release, but other than that we've kind of been mostly working on Mind Thaumaturgy, but with a broader scope too. Part of this was something we had to check off our list for the update anyway, our first Revelation based power...

    Coffee Diary 28/8/23

    Hey Exanimates, The main goals for this update have been reached, we've had some time to polish things too, add some smaller features and QoL, deal with some old issues and all sorts, but the new content is still being worked on, and so development must continue. With this update we introduced...

    Coffee Diary 21/8/23

    Hey Exanimates, We've done a lot of work on the narration system and the dialogue system in general, in terms of making the system more functional and versatile. We have interactive narration prompts, and the first instance of more structured events and story interaction. For now this involves...

    Coffee Diary 14/8/23

    Hey Exanimates, Things are very busy and a bit chaotic right now as we try to get many things fully ready for the update. As predicted in the previous diary, there's not a lot for us to report on right now, we're not really adding features or designing new things, just making sure that...

    Coffee Diary 7/8/23

    Hey Exanimates, From here until the update drops we won't really have much to report in the coffee diaries. We're basically just finalising assets, improving and polishing things up in general. With the core features for the update established, there won't be anything new and exciting to report...

    Hey Exanimates, We did a big patch for the insider test release this week, fixing up and improving some of the new force powers, a tonne of mostly minor issues and content fixes. Insiders seem to be really enjoying the update and getting some serious playtime and testing in, we have some...
