Well, you wanted screenshots…

Here’s a (very, very, very early) screenshot from Caveman Craig 2. As you can see, very little has been done on the graphic side of Caveman Craig 2 – beyond the base running animation of Craig.

A gatherer hunts a green spot for meat

This comes later in the development process – most of our work has been behind the scenes.. the engine, artificial intelligence, all the concept on paper, etc.

If you can’t work out what’s going on in this shot, then I don’t blame you. Basically, the gatherer happens to have a spear (0_O, gossip!) which he’s using to kill green spots (herbivores, eventually). Why’s he glowing? Well, that’s his ‘throw spear’ animation for now.

Probably the coolest looking thing on this screen is the sun. Mainly created out of real-time effects, it glows and flickers. We’ll probably add some cool lens flare later on, but it’s mainly there to signify what time of day it is. It’s clearly around 12pm in this shot.

    Thanks for the screenshot! I understand the placeholder graphics, but already the sun looks cool, and the “gatherers use spears to hunt” idea looks potentialy usefull.

    awesome sun!!
    though why give gatherer spears?
    why not just give them a rock the throw and let the hunters have the epic weapons
    also can you show us more of the buttons you press and menu?

    Yeah. I agree with QWERTY. But, why do the gatherers get spears to throw? Isn’t it the hunters job to do the battling?

      Afraid not. For a start, everyone would just claim they don’t own a credit card =)

      In this day and age it’s difficult to purchase anything online without a paypal account or credit card.
