So I find it amazing that no thread about Limit Theory has been brought up yet.

A one man show with a very successful kickstarter campaign and an extremely interesting approach on development, albeit not entirely original. The idea falls in the "procedural generation game design" trope, but I'd say the results so far have been nothing short of awesome.

I really like his approach and I'm extremely interested in the end result. Here's his latest development video (end of september):

I've been following this keenly. I'm bummed I missed the Kickstarter, but I'll definitely be grabbing a copy upon release.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Hopefully not, otherwise it could get too fenzy and important infos are tend to be overseen.

Not the amazing update one should hope for at this point, but given how this is a modders forum, I think you all should really like this video.

I love how this all evolved from "There probably won't be any modding" to "Turns out, all the tools I need to make this game would make modding actually fun and workable, so look forward to that".

Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain

ahah you're so right. Well at least we know that's 100% moddable. And oh so easy at that, I'm quite fascinated by the easeness of this. It's like FSO Lua scripting on superhero pills.
