TUG, the crowdfunded sandbox that moved from Kickstarter campaign to alpha testing in record time. But that doesn't mean that work hasn't been moving forward on The Untitled Game; in fact, there has been plenty of progress on the tech side of things. Devs released an update outlining the current systems being worked on -- namely, networking and multiplayer, a scripting sub-system, character and AI systems, and terrain modification tools.
If everything goes smoothly, TUG alpha testers can look forward to playing together in creative mode in two patch cycles.

Hear all the details about these systems and more in the full progress notes.
