Yep, that’s right Volygon is getting close to Alpha Release!
Well, I will be making another announcement when you can get your hands on Volygon Alpha. For participating in the Alpha, I’ll be rewarding players with limited edition items. More details to come soon…
Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to!
Building System v2.0
The building system in Volygon just got a major upgrade. Compared to previous videos of the system, you’ll find that this system allows for much prettier shapes. Before, there were many issues with the way that triangles joined, as well as the different orientations that a triangle may be built. Now, a triangle may be placed vertically, horizontally, or any direction you can think of. Also, the snapping system is much easier to use and more accurate. And of course, all of this is working in real-time multiplayer.
Much effort has gone into the design of the UI in Volygon. I want to make sure the UI is nice to look at but also very easy to use. The UI has been built from the ground up to scale on any resolution.
Playermodels are in and animated over the network. Yes, there will be many skins to choose from in the future!
As per usual, there have been hundreds of other small changes to the game. All of these changes are in preparation for the Alpha release. Volygon is becoming a very stable game running at high framerates!
