SDNL: New Game World

@Johanna worked art for the “pre-round” and “post-round” rooms.

@Lifeless added CCTV cameras, weapon pickups, and other objects to all the maps, while working on “Containership”.

He also fixed a bunch of bugs found during playtesting, and continued working on the SDK system.

@Nuclearxpotato continued working on maps and props.

@Sketchman continued working on updated weapon prediction.

@Will continued working on music.

I love those banners.
I’m really happy to hear there’ll be the SDK and several gamemode types on release, thank you so much for all your hard work towards this gameworld.


SDNL looks absolutely amazing!


SDNL looks even better with every single update that’s shown for it. Very excited to see all the love and effort put into it to shine within the gamemode itself.
