Thanks to +TheShortAndTheTall !
We released a new BETA for our game EFFING DEAD, vers. 0.8.9. 

EFFING DEAD is a SciFi Survival Action game in the style of Resident Evil 4.
You are a defense clone and you need to find our what's happen on a space station where other clones were infected by something unknown. 
The clones are specialized in find and storage water from the space but it seems that something goes wrong... 
It's up to you to find out what's going on, restore the space station power and clean the place from any "anomaly". You can use different type of weapons and perform barrel rolls to avoid grabs and do special moves.

SOME FEATURES:

   - Third person point of view with real time lighting and day/night time
   - 3D water with physics
   - In game Map with enemies presence
   - No need of inventory screen: change weapon and use stuff in game without any pause
   - Aim to interact and take control of different type of sensors
   - Exploration will need puzzles solving (we like action but also brain use )
   - Different type of custumizable weapons
   - Enemies with multiple type of AI and attack-defense behavior
   - Find the right tactics and the best way to kill the enemies for increasing your ammo and collecting coins for weapons upgrades
   - Do head shots or destroy bodies parts with your arsenal
   - Perform barrel rolls to avoid grabs and use the energy blade for special moves
   - Look out for your energy and prevent damage for the camera signal
   - Find out how to enter areas with camera signal shields 

FOR THE DOWNLOAD: Go to our indieDB page for the download or just jump on our site:

This version, 0.8.9, is the last before a major update with a lot of new feature and a new GFX style.

Gliders : The concept is quite evocative for me, and I decided to create a flash fiction story based on this motif. I earlier posted about Dynamic gliding here http://goo.gl/kF3zab

Thanks to +Charles Strebor, I wrote this piece, now on my blog http://www.lacerantplainer.com/

Slight detour from the regular posts, regular programming will resume tomorrow!

+TheShortAndTheTall  is a small indie games team from Italy - Alessio (the short one) and Alberto (the tall one) contacted SF mods about offering their free Beta release of EFFING DEAD game in the Sci-Fi community.

EFFING DEAD is a survival game like the  Resident Evil 4, completely in 3D, with real-time light and shadows, glows and water physics, with a special touch -  from description on their website

Since they followed the rules for promotion in the community and seem like really nice guys, we are happy to help them and wish them best luck in making their game. =)

Feel free to check it out and if you like it let them know about it
