Great feedback and ideas here, Mc.
Haha, we are very aware the 3rd person animations are complete shit in the trailer. That and almost every point here has been overhauled or is currently being worked on.
When we recorded footage for the trailer, it was a big challenge for us to go public with those 3rd person animations. We ran into engine issues with the character rigging and felt that it was more important for us to stay on schedule than invest a hefty amount of time into fixing them.
As perfectionists, the trailer was far from perfect and the chunkiness hurt our soul more than you know!
