I couldn't find a thread on this game. I know it's not out yet but I'm super excited for it. Is anyone else as excited as I am. I'm actually more looking forward to this game than even ff7. Crazy I know. I can't wait to explore an almost endless procedural universe.

No release date so far which irks me but I can understand the creator wants perfection upon releasing this game.

I'm skeptical about the game; I mean I can see the potential and shit, but I'm just afraid it'll get very repetitive, very fast. I'm getting a Spore vibe from it; great in theory, kinda meh in practice. They really really really need to do it right in the actual 'game' part of the game; generating planets and such is one thing, fitting it into a game is a whole different... game. Bad pun, sorry

Yeah I hope it doesn't end up like spore. I think the creator is pretty worried about that as well. He has bots flying around his universe now taking random pictures. And then from this he tweaks his equations. I wouldn't mind seeing all those pictures...

I'm not really into those kind of games, but this has my attention and I agree with Yop about repetitiveness. I'll definitely get it, although perhaps not on release date (it's rare I do with any game these days).

No release date yet, but I'm going to take a wild guess and say near the end of 2016, if not 17.

I'd say maybe around the end of 2015-early 2016. The release date was supposed to come out a few months ago, but had to be delayed because there was a copyright issue going on.
From everything I've seen Sean Murray say, he wouldnt announce the release date until he's sure it's going to come out then, and I can't see him putting too much time between when he announces it and when it's released because that leaves too much time for something to go wrong.

I could be wrong of course, that's just the impression I get off of the various interviews I've seen from him.

I have to agree with the others in this thread: while I think the concept is incredible, I can't get excited about the game until I really understand what drives the gameplay. If it's just exploring for exploring's sake, I'll probably give it a miss. Also, I'm a little disappointed that, aside from naming things, changes made to planets are only temporary. I understand the problem of syncing the state of 18 quintillion planets, but still, it makes the player's actions feel less meaningful. If I make something really cool - or even fuck a whole planet up - it would be exciting to think that someone else might find it someday and think, "wow", or "what the hell happened here?"

I'm somewhat hyped for it because it looks pretty and promising, but I also agree with Flint. It's also something that's not necessarily copying anything on the market, too. Hopefully, a release date will be announced soon with some more details.

I wouldn't say I'm "excited" for this game, but I'll probably get it as long as it debuts at a reasonable price and has more than exploration. Although tbh I find the exploration aspect pretty cool on its own.

Yeah, but only for a short while; I think an apt comparison would be to play Spore, but only the 5th stage where you can fly around randomly generated worlds / species and not actually do anything.

I'm really curious about this game and going to keep my eye on it. Just have to say though, that box cover art is gorgeous. <3
