Must admit it does look amazing, watched that video and the graphics are exceptional, when the guy does hit something its great to see a stalagmite or whatever fall down. Was moaning it had no on screen controls but i have to take a punt on this one, looks very special.

This one's more of an experience than it is a game - had a fun time beta testing it and should get an overall positive response from the community.

Looks awesome. Just a heads up though, you've spelt the name of the game wrong in the thread title.

Oh, I have too. Funny, I made the same mistake in my notes, so I was specifically looking out for it. Must be the rush getting to me, sorry. >_<
