    So this was announced at the VGX's today and it looks crazy ambitious. Even moreso when you consider it's made by 4 people! No platforms's have been announced as yet.

    Trailer at the link

    I'm very excited about this, being a 4 man team I think they will join Sonys indie dev program where by they get given assistance with development in exchange for exclusivity on the ps4 console.

    Hello games has 13 employees apparently. You'd imagine more will move onto this as it could be really big if successful.

    Here's the trailer:



    Very interested in this. It's a huge step up from Joe Danger which they made recently. I didn't expect them to pull off anything like this :eek:.

    Definitely one of the most impressive showings, despite the lack of true gameplay. The game looks absolutely ridiculously gorgeous.

    Seems Sony have bailed them out after the unfortunate flooding their studios got and thus have given an exclusive release period, at a guess anyway.

    The devs know what they're doing and know how to make good games, so I have this one high on my anticipated list for sure.

    Is this exclusive to PS4? When does it release?

    I was blown away by the E3 Trailer, might need to buy a PS4 sooner than planned just for this!!!!

    The fact that going from land to space so quickly without a load time is the main reason why i want this game.
    Hope other sci-fi games follow this trend.

    It's hard to decipher what the conflict would be.

    It's got dinosaurs.

    The rest is window dressing.

    Seems to be about exploration which is fine with me.

    Others may like it - but I'd get bored of that VERY fast.

    Conflict is a necessity IMO.

    But we should.

    It just feels like we are talking about a game with all the info at hand, and people are making declarations. Here's what we know.

    • It's got dinosaurs and spaceships.
    • It's procedurally generated content...whatever that means.
    we know nothing else about gameplay, combat etc.

    Apologies if my sarcasm was hard to detect.

    When I made the initial query about the game's plot/genre I was at my work PC that blocks VG content (barring this forum of course), so on a slow Friday arvo I was hoping to get some info about the game.

    My follow up regarding "exploration" was to address the poster's opinion about how he'd be happy with it. My opinion about it was merely a generalisation.

    Just shooting the shit. :)

    Procedurally generated means that every single level/world/area in the game is made from a base set of assets and randomly applied. Effectively, it means that nobody will ever get the exact same area to explore, every world will be different.

    In that respect it's similar to a game like Minecraft. Of course, we're still yet to know what sort of gameplay influences will go into this world, which is the most interesting part for sure.
