To everyone keeping an eye on OBEY… thank you!
Recently the game has hit some big milestones:
- Voice chat is now integrated into the game. It still has some rough edges like having it’s configuration integrated into a GUI but this is a big step for accessibility and having new players join the community without wrestling with skype or teamspeak.
- Sounds. For most of the life of OBEY so far it has had no sounds at all. The game probably has about 70% of it’s sounds implemented now. Of course there are lots of tweaks and optimizations left to do, but this is a big step.
- The latest version has smooth transitions between maps so that players are not kicked off the server after every round but are instead smoothly brought in again. The game feels a lot more polished after this simple change.
Of course there have been many other additions and changes. But there isn’t much left now before it is ready to push for a big influx of new players 😀
