New Brink Developer Diary Slides, Mantles, Vaults

The latest Brink developer diary is here, featuring none other than the Sovereign of SMART, Technical Designer Aubrey 'Bezzy' Hesselgren. Short for Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain, SMART is Brink's freedom of movement system, allowing you to neatly vault, slide, and mantle your way through the environment and up/over/under any obstacles in your path.

In the developer diary, Aubrey describes how and why SMART initially came about, its development process, and how it all works internally. It's very interesting indeed - you can read it on the Brink website.

If you missed them earlier, don't forget to check out Paul Wegdwood's inaugural diary, Olivier Leonardi's diary about the art style, and Ed Sterns diary covering backstory and narrative.
