BlockShip Wars v0.6 Alpha and DemoCamp-Halifax
It's been a while! Work on the alpha has been progressing, however I haven't released anything publicly yet due to being a perfectionist and the whole "just one more feature" complex. I've added over 200 new screenshots from various stages of development between now and the last release, some features were added and then removed (like space stations), others are sticking and are still on way for the alpha (like single direction thrusters). Here's a list of some of the features you should expect in the Alpha. Also I'm proud to be presenting a 5 minute demo at this year's DemoCamp in Halifax, NS - should be a blast!

Better particles & In-game chat
Implemented a better particle system; Optimized in C++, and makes use of additive blending for more realistic particle effects. To implement a particle system like this, you use more particles of different colours (For fire/explosions I used red, yellow, orange and white particles so when multiple particles are blended with varying opacities a full fire palette is used.) When there are many particles in a relativly small space, and additive blending is used the effect is quite good. Looks even better animated than in the screenshots.

Also added in-game chat functionality. You can press enter to bring up the chat textbox, enter your message, and press enter again to send it. In-game chat allows you to taunt, compliment, signal, or whatever type of communication you need with your opponent.
