Please view the comments section of their forums, we will need to get on this fast, there is a lot of misconceptions flying around there and we need to present the best face possible.
Everyone should know that video is basicly fan service for those of us who played the Natural Selection mod for Half Life 1 - it was yet another carrot in a long list of carrots the Independent Developers of Unknown Worlds (Charlie "Flayra" Cleveland, Max "Max" McGuire, Cory "Squeal Like a Pig" Strader, Matt "Ooghijmiqtxxa" Regan, and more) that they have been giving to us: in the form of pictures, audio blogs, video blogs, twitter, and forum posts we have been following the development of their commercial game pretty much since it was a twinkle in the eye of Charlie when he was working on making the many content and tweak versions of the Half Life mod with his team of fellow modders from all around the globe. Remember how Stardock (Impulse) has been praised for letting the game community come along for the ride during development? These Unknown World guys so do that.
Want game play footage? We are still waiting on that till they release the beta to the play testers/special pre-orders.
And if you haven't heard of Natural Selection for Half-Life? It was right behind Counter-Strike and Day of Defeat in terms of numbers of players and servers ... and you have pretty much missed that bus, it is rare to find a good game of it these days, most of those servers moved on to other games by now as the player base dwindled. It has been compared to Savage and Savage 2, but trust me on this, it was way, way more fun. I played Natural Selection for years, the community around the games was just that good for that amount of time. So, if you haven't heard of it before, take note, you just bumped into what has the potential to be one of the biggest indy titles in years - we'll let you know when there is better footage to get your freak on as TSA Marine or Kharaa shape changing aliens.
Here, have some in game screen shots from their alpha testing:The future of this indy game looks damn fine.
