    November has arrived already! We've made a lot of progress on some fun Legion TD 2 features, but today we want to highlight something special: unit animations. We've revealed concept art and 3D models for a variety of units in the past monthly updates. Now we want to show you how one special unit--the Dino--comes to life.

    When animating any game model that needs to march on the battlefield, we need four major animations: Idle, Move, Attack, and of course, Death.



    Note: these graphics are still just previews, and will look even better once they're imported into the game engine!

    Another major development this month is Apex, a powerful tool built to manage Legion TD 2's game content. Plans are to release Apex along with Legion TD 2, which will enable anyone to create custom mods and play them with others, for free. Many of you have shared awesome ideas with us, and through Apex, you'll be able to bring those ideas to life.

    Keep an eye out for more information on Apex in the coming months! This month we'll be continuing to improve the game engine and developing the official Legion TD 2 website for a targeted end of year launch.

    We'll leave you with a look at another upcoming fighter... check out Daphne!
