Popped a few images in the screenshots page, been doing a lot of work getting the UIs and finally space to planet transitions working which should lead me back to the ground game work I've been unceremoniously putting off for a few weeks now. Big changes to the Movement and Behaviour systems in the coming...

Inch by Inch – The November Edition

The site is alive

I believe "hello world" are the traditional first words to place in the beginning of any digital foray. It's been two years in the making, and Trapdoor Bear is close to releasing it's first game to the public eye. In the next few months we will be updating this space with our progress. We are...
