An interesting trailer is one thing, an actual working and compelling game is another. While the trailer definitely piqued my interest, I'll reserve judgement until I actually play the completed game.



...True. I'm honestly curious how this team came up with something like this. I mean they only have Danger games under there belt. To go from that to...this is insane.

Yep, that's why while the trailer definitely looks very cool, I have my doubts, given the very limited experience of the team that they'll be able to pull this off. More power to them if they can, I would definitely purchase this if it indeed delivers on its promises.

I doubt it will be good but I"ll still be buying it because this seems like the game I've always dreamed of. :p

How are they going to store all the locations that you've previously visited? Unless they're just not going to do that...

I imagine each virtual "universe" and each constituent star/planet etc. will be written out to disk as you access them.

The load times are going to be absolutely horrible. And I imagine it will take up a lot of storage space.

That is true...how the heck will they 'map' locations and remember them? Will each 'server' procedural generate a galaxy?


How will mapping stuff work?
