Gas Powered Games holding live Q&A today, will stream progress daily until campaign ends

Developer Gas Powered Games will host live streams every weekday until the Kickstarter campaign for its RTS role-playing game Wildman ends on Feb. 15, CEO Chris Taylor announced in an update to the game's Kickstarter page.

Weekdays at 8 p.m. ET, associate engineer Bruce Bjorklund will host a live stream on the Gas Powered Games Twitch channel. Bjorklund has hosted previous streams for Wildman in which he took questions from viewers.

Gas Powered Games will host another live Q&A session on its Twitch channel today at 4 p.m. ET.

The developer also posted two videos to the Kickstarter page showing Wildman's Windows-based map editor. In one video, designer Brian Sturm walks viewers through creating individual pieces of terrain and how the map building software connects them at specific "nodes." These tools are used for overworld terrain as well as more complicated structures such as underground dungeons.

The video posted above shows environment artist Jeremy Schmidt creating the above mentioned nodes. Nodes are placed on specific points in Wildman's environment and can be flipped and rotated after placement to build varied, complex environments without simply copying and pasting art assets.
