I can't wait to see people making hi detail models, post process effects, normal maps and such for the game.

First reaction: "Awesome!"

Upon reading the source code: :shock:

The source code is terrifyingly bad[1]. I've looked at the Black Shades source previously, so I knew what to expect, but man. Don't get me wrong; this is awesome, and Wolfire is awesome, but the code as it stands seems unmaintainable to a mere mortal such as myself! So as several people have already said, before anything awesome comes of this (as I'm sure there will), there is going to be a lot of uninteresting cleaning up churn in the repository first!

Thanks guys. :D

[1]: The snippets that David has shown in various places seem really good, so I'm not concerned about the state of Overgrowth's source!

They sure are!
I don't see how that's one word, though. Image

Haha, it's true! I love the Game::Tick() function in particular. over 9000 lines!

Also, Hey everyone! I bought the humble bundle a few days ago and have completed Lugaru since then.

Thanks so much for the game, and for the source!

I'm in. *thumbs up, touch sunglasses*

It was way cooler in my head...
I only programm Java, though. I guess first of all I have to ask if I would have been of any use in such a project.

Might want to wait until some basic cleanup has been done.

I was kinda joking...

But yeah, as soon as I figure out how to get to the source, I'm up for some basic cleanup. It'll help me test my C++ knowledge, if anything. Syntax, optimization, and all.

You're probably right.

Knowing me, I would probably get frightened and remove it all, and try to build it up from scratch. But since I don't know the language, that's not going to work very well.

Haven't you got ahold of it yet?
If you read the newest blogpost it tells you exactly what to do.

No. They confused me with the Mercury repository thing. I'm used to just using TortoiseSVN and getting things off of there. I have no idea what to do now.
