Hello! Welcome to another Dev Log, I thought I'd update everyone one what's been going on and what we're planning. Well we are working on a way to earn some more funds to allow us to expand New Outbreak not only by bringing it to Mac and Linux for Launch but also to get more talent on board to bring a more unique atmosphere to New Outbreak, currently we are consumed and don't have a lot of time to work but we are pressing through to make sure everything carries on flowing, for the past week I've been setting up the Xbox side of things for New Outbreak so not much work has been done lately on the actual game but thankfully It seems I should be able to put it all behind and continue work properly, we are currently in the process of reworking the GUI not only graphically but the technical side aswell since it is causing overlaying issues with the mouse and therefore needs to be taken care of. And also getting bandits atleast somewhat working and hopefully I should be able to have something to show of them in the coming weeks. One small feature I am looking into adding in is a simple Spectator mode for if you want to watch how the bandits actually work without having them fight you and possibly just spawning in at any time either as your own character or a pre-existing one but that's all just concept at the moment.

Remastered Demo
One thing that I want to make before New Outbreaks releases, though I am looking to release it as soon as possible, is a remaster of the Pre-Alpha demo, it will be essentially the same but re-done(With more things though of course!), I don't think we will be including Bandits into the Demo, mainly because of complications it may cause as we get further into development but It hasn't been ruled out yet. We hope that will give people a better idea of what our game is and whether it will be worth their time, this will also help us understand what people like and don't like and what they want added in and therefore make the game better on launch!

That's pretty much all I have to write about at the moment, I'll try to keep these logs more updated with information!

Thanks for reading!
