Pre-Alpha 1. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay behind in schedule.
If you go to their store there's no package at any price that grants access to this. Along with this preview, I hope that Intrepid announces a package that will let you in to Alpha One.
at least they have something and didnt scam their peeps. Kudos !
I'm a Kickstarter purchaser with the Founder Package ($150).
They are lagging behind quite abit, all due to poor management choices. Such as to invest in Apocalypse which is completely dead.
Nonetheless, I've seen the Twitch episode few days back where they showed pre-alpha. Whereas the area and environment is beautiful the character models/movement still look the same as one year ago.
My conclusion is that the animation department is not quite on par with the acceptable norm we see in games today. Quite a shame really, it's something that's rooted deep within the core code of the animations (be it characters, animals, etc.).
Not easily fixed either, unless they re-write the base structure for animations. Meaning it won't change all that much from now on. It looks rigid, and I suppose that's the way it stays.
