Game I'm considering backing. Attempt by the people of former Looking Glass Studios (Ultima Underworld, Thief, System Shock) to innovate the fantasy dungeon crawler through extreme emergent gameplay. Thought I'd at least spread the word for them.

There is one intriguing pre-alpha tech demo out for consumption by high-tier backers. Here is a video of it in action.

Very interesting! Thanks for sharing, MRN. System Shock was of course great, and I love this genre. I'll keep an eye on these guys.

New video. They are still looking for backers.

Pre-Alpha look.

Maybe they should have waited until it was more complete. This looks very clunky and is not at all appealing. While the earlier videos were clearly unfinished, this stage seems like it wants to be complete, and yet is very disappointing. I hope it has a long way to go.

9 more months, at least. Pre-alpha is pre-alpha.

I suppose that is the problem with pre-alpha, though. What does that mean? It's different for every company. But pre-alpha shouldn't mean complete, so I shouldn't expect that. Time will tell!
