Oy, Gevalt!

I guess it's time for one of those entries that begin, "boy, it's been a long time..."

I don't have an excuse for not updating the blog, except for life itself. Anyway, a lot has happened since my last update. We were named finalists in the Non-FPS category of Phase 3 of the contest. I'm expecting the winners to be announced sometime next week. I still think we'll be second.

As far as development goes on the game, it's been slow. Several of us had some 'real life' issues to deal with shortly after the last deadline, but we're finally starting to make progress on the next version. I'm personally working on some new menu screens and a mini-golf course, and I've already updated the HUD quite a bit. I think it's a big improvement.

Feedback on the game has been positive, but I don't think that we get much attention from your standard UT player, since we have no guns or violence. It's sad, really, but I guess it's to be expected when your typical golf gamer is not going to buy UT2004 and vice versa.
