Test Penumbra: Overture Audio

It seems there was enough time for one more post this year after all!

As the audio engine in Penumbra: Overture has been redone to utilize OpenAL there is an urge to have it checked on as many computers as possible. Visit this thread to download the test and report your findings either directly in the thread or to the e-mail address given in the documentation.

Happy Hollidays!

The last news post for the year will be a short one. First, we at Frictional Games would like to wish you all a Happy Holiday!

During the holiday season you might get an urge to have something to read, perhaps while you are traveling to relatives in an Internet enabled vehicle of some sort. Dear Thomas thought of this and has recently done an interview that you can read over at Pro-G.

Last we have released three new screens of Penumbra: Overture. You'll find them at the official site, www.penumbra-overture.com, not to be confused with other recently registered penumbra overture sites...

See you all next year!

Physics video & Developers diary

During the Adventure Developers Online Conference we released a video demonstrating the physics interaction we have developed for Penumbra: Overture. It also offers a first peak at in-game gameplay from the game.

You can see the video over at GameTrailers.com or choose any of the download options found on the official Penumbra: Overture site.

gx imageThe first in a series of four developers diary entries have been published over at GamesExtreme.net. During these last months before Penumbra: Overture is released you'll get the opportunity to read about how life progresses here on Frictional Farm. In this first entry Thomas writes about how Penumbra came to be and gives an overall introduction to the game. As we write the diary there will most likely not be any updates to our own blog, but the diary should be a nice substitute and the blog sparely missed.
