The indie MMORPG said that it’s made “a lot of progress” on rewriting its animation system to allow for more emotes, movements, and, yes, dancing. While the team said that players won’t see any changes in the game right away, this development will allow for a lot more possibilities in the future.
“As an example, we’re finally able to add new dance moves!” said the Gorgon team. “Just to clarify — the new animation system lets us have more than six total dance moves. Some of the old dance moves have been retired, but don’t worry: we kept the classy ones like the ‘point to my ass’ dance.”
We've made a lot of progress on our animation-system rewrite, just fixing tons of bugs now.
We're still using (mostly) old animations for now, but this code upgrade will let us quickly add and iterate on animations. (As an example, we're finally able to add new dance moves!) pic.twitter.com/sqP8JFmHQO
