Final version

Hey everyone,

Here is the final version of the game that we submitted for assessment. It's packed into an installer to compress the game (from 1GB+ down to 300MB) so it's a bit more download friendly and easy to get going.

Update for 30/7/14

Today, we:

-Decided on what game we plan to proceed with. We decided on a multiplayer dragon game where you go around killing villagers and claiming their treasures, meanwhile other dragons are doing the same thing and can steal your treasures (however, they have to deal with tiny dragons you can spawn defending the villages).

-Partially fixed AI for the security guards of the prototype.
-Created a camera system to switch between stationary cameras for different sections of the level based on where the player was currently at.
