I wasn't nearly as well understanding of modern gaming last year when I saw the news that GB put out about this. Recently I found an old RPS interview with the developer. Despite hating the artistic stylings of Half-Life and the underwhelming low polish on the amazing but imperfect Deus Ex I was intruiged. There's a lot of interesting ideas from trying to make every aspect perfect in player freedom of complex abilities, and an intersting world on top of that.
I know the game's "gone dark" on purpose because there's not much to show, but it seems to have just disappeared from people's minds. I really think a lot of people will love it, and I hope I will too despite hating a lot of the design elements I've seen visually. Anyone still thinking about it?
