this game is looking pretty good.  procedural generation of guns and landscape, open-ended environment, and the graphics are really unconventional.  also, the co-op looks like it’ll be pretty solid, which is always good.  not that i’ll have time to ever play it though, haha.  but maybe it will be nice to have, so i can […]
