Weekly Update - Village Behaviour

Hi everyone,

Welcome to a new edition of our weekly update! It’s another quiet week at the studio, as about half of us are on vacation, so it’s a smaller update today than usual.

This week we have been focusing on NPC activities - basically, what the Wellies do all day. It’s livened up the place something grand.

Narrative Team


I went through our recording session and pulled the best takes to use for [redacted]’s in-game barks and responses to scenarios. I’ve also been editing audio for various cut scenes in the [redacted] playthrough. Also, over the weekend, I rewrote [redacted]’s playthrough so that it’s no longer an issue of [redacted].

Programming Team


I worked mostly on AI passive behaviours (the things they do when they don't suspect or try to kill you). We added a few activities (we call them "points of interest") using existing animations that were not yet integrated into the game. I also fixed tons of stuff that really should have been working at this stage, including usages of some activities and general movement. Now the NPCs, mostly in the village, have a lot more variations as to what they're doing.
It's just the beginning.

Art Team


I continued working on the filler building I modelled last week, texturing it.

Have a great weekend everyone!
