TODAY'S PROGRESS REPORT!

Gabe Nathan and Aaron were wrapped up today in testing Nathan's new damage system in the multiplayer! We're looking to get a release out with the multiplayer by the end of the week, and today was a big step towards it!

Interface Concept

Blockade Runner's first person interface will evolve with the game, however we've got to have an idea on where interface elements will be beforehand. To that end, take a peek at our Photoshop mockup overlayed in the game!

The minimap resides in the top-left, connected players (and their status) on top, health and experience points in the top right, current objectives on the right, inventory on the bottom, player chat (/ game events) in the bottom-left, available actions in the center-bottom, and immediate directions in the center-top.

Tomorrow

Micah's video animation of a "Rock Monster" character, and possibly an explanation of Solenium2 (So2), the marvelous substance that makes space travel possible in Blockade Runner!

The first demonstration will be through direct IP; a server listings screen afterwards.
