This sequel to Lugaru, a game about anthropomorphic rabbits with martial art skills is coming along now. The best thing about the project is the developer, Wolfire. Or to be specific, their blog.

They're very open about what they are working on and the blog serves as a constant stream of dev diaries. You get to see how the tech is progressing, how they solve problems from texture compression to building the editor. There's always new concept art and they even take time to discuss other gaming stuff. I'm surprised there isn't a podcast too.

Recently a staffer put up this entry. It's a bunch of graphics research videos including this astounding 3D face morphing thing.

If you've not seen or played Lugaru, which is highly likely, then just search for it on YouTube. Simple controls given complexity through contextual diversity makes for a deep combat game. It's a bit like the kung-fu mod for Max Payne crossed with Watership Down.

Quite bizarre! The face morphing thing looks astounding though. Imagine that tech in Fable III...!

I think I've found my new favourite game: why have I not heard of this insane game before?

Well, I do have a unique link that will allow two people to get a free copy. Try the demo and if you like it I'll give you the link.
