Beta 9 has been posted to the website, with a new download page:
I could really use some feedback on the game, so please, check it out! Its just a 60 meg download, and should provide about one evening's worth of gameplay.
Beta 9 now includes such niceities as real setup and uninstall programs.
Still needs audio and an opening animation. But I found a copy of caveman 1.0, complete with all the original wav files! And i still have source code for version 1.0, including the music player code. X Audio 2 based code is already in Caveman v3.0, - ready to go - just add wav files and stir!
I'm thinking I'll hold off on offspring, dinos, modern, an aquatic animals due to the time required to create the additional content (models, meshes, textures, and animations for babies, children, dinos, modern animals, and aquatic animals).
Audio and some serious play testing seems to be the next most important thing on the to do list for the project.
I also added a "quick tour" of the game to the website:
That's all for now!
Remember - keep your eye on the prize! Twice as important when its a big prize and takes a long time.
