Added grip texture to the hand.

Made the wrist display real stats. They change as you play.



Also finally implemented death!

if i can be a critic here,...


I think you should reconsider the use of "calibri" (i think its calibri) for your font.  it's a bit out of favor these days and with the font your are using for "HAPAX" it is a bit,.. something something.  i'm not really a font expert but something about them visually conflict or something something.


Segoe UI is popular these days and when I put it up against your screen looks better in my opinion.   I also liked Kalinga.

Looks incredible.

HAPAX is all caps and uses a very open and curved font (with the A not being pointy), whereas the menu is mostly lowercase and uses a pointier font, and looks like it came out of a word document.  

Not terrible, but I can see what you mean if I am looking at it.

The menu text is Liberation Sans but it's just the default. I'll definitely look into your suggestions.

This is the only non diegetic menu so I can maybe do something more fancy with it. Although I do still need button prompt icons which should match this style.

Looks incredible.  
Thanks!

I might need to touch up my logo, but at the same time it's definitely in the "good enough" stage.

Random fun tid bit: sci fi tension can be hard.

Tell players they are a billion miles from Earth and it means nothing. Even if they understand the distance, they don't know how your sci fi ships work.


So I'm trying to really sell the idea early on in the game that you are in a bad situation. I have a gps like device that is having a lot of issues, I have an oximeter showing blood oxygen in the 80s, and I have an unknown alien planet floating nearby.

This all came together accidentally, but I love it.

I'm struggling with aliasing but I would love to keep this look.
