    Love

    I just found out about this game. It's looking pretty interesting so far. It'll be a "not so massively multiplayer" game, and... well... I'm not really sure what to say. You should just read and look around for yourself.

    You can build cities. You can fight. You can change the world.
    The whole thing is being done by one guy, and the post-processing effects in his engine are... curious, to say the least. The whole thing looks like it's painted.

    Make sure you check out the videos here. I'd recommend watching the teaser first. Gives a general look at it. Then the gameplay demo... verrry neat, I like the ideas a lot. Then you can go oggle at the awesome tools he made that I'm still astounded at. :O

    Oh and then finally on his blog you can download an "alpha client" that lets you see how the engine looks for yourself and gives him some info he needs.

    I like "painted" games. It beats down and pummels the "its not real enough" complaint.

    /me goes off to watch the vids now

    Wow. Saw this a very long time ago when he had just started making it. Can barely recognise it now.

    Looks pretty cool. At the start of the gameplay demo, I wasn't convinced about it, but then he showed the AI generated city, and.... wow... that's pretty awesome.

    Kind of worried about small servers and the level of freedom in world manipulation, seems like it might be too easy for certain players to completely dominate. Of course, I don't play any kind of MMO, so... I don't know.

    I'm a sucker for AI generated worlds.

    In fact, one of my ambitions is to make a game whose content is entirely procedural.
