Check out the latest Staff Blog update that talks about what's changed, what's new, and what's up with these "Pixels".

The first version was quick and dirty placeholder graphics.
The second version was a revisit of the model to improve it a bit.

The cube is scaled down to make the deck. The tree trunk mesh is scaled appropriately to draw the large log floats on the sides, and to draw the tiller paddle handle at the back.
Using rafts to "island hop", humans were able to spread throughout the Pacific, perhaps even as far east as the west coast of South America. Rafts may have also played a major role in migrations to the Americas across the Bearing Land Bridge, especially down the western cost of North America.
