    You guys are thinking way too small. Mineral oil cool the blasted things, and then put motorized fishthings swimming around inside the damn computers.

    What could go wrong.

    Gotta say I'm damn proud of you guys for getting this up on SteamOS. It's super forward thinking of you guys and I hope Valve does all those wonderful things they've been promising to make it as easy as possible for you guys.

    What's the best non twitter way to get a hold of you? I think I may be able to help.

    Components arrived today for the first prototype: https://twitter.com/Subnautica/status/444573527291613184

    We're going to build it over the w/e, analyse the prospects of the whole project, and then make a decision on the other 11... This may happen!

    It is very hard to show a game without machines, so we need to think outside the hull. What do you guys think about this idea: Unknown Worlds will build 12 mini-ITX 'submersibles' - Small machines with Subnautica branding on them.
    So zis is wat you were sinking about after all!

    This is a prototype SubMachine, running a prototype SteamOS, running a prototype build of Subnautica, being controlled by a prototype Steam Controller:

    I'm not sure how much more prototype this shit gets.

    Hugh now looks like a bad guy from a 90's action film. I don't trust this plan anymore.

    P.S. any chance on just buying the PAX version once the event is over? I dont really have the money or need for a more powerful gaming rig.

    A pre-built, fully tested brand new gaming PC for less than the components themselves cost?! Madness.... I think the infestation on your chin has gone to your head!
    I'm very interested in making the purchase for one as my main rig. When can we get an exact price and component list?

    Hugh without beard could never hurt gorge plushie
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    I figure that I'm a bit late to the party here, but that surely is interesting. Any words on shipping to Europe yet?

    If I were local I would volunteer to help build them. Maybe you can enlist local help either near UWE HQ or before PAX. And then those who help build get to be on the top of the list for buying them and or get an increased discount on the boxes?

    Word prototype used 4 times. Hugh will go 20 years into future and bring back HL4.

    Played it at PAX after never hearing about it (last ones in line that were able to play as the even floor closed on Friday - my wife and I!). Awesome idea on liquid cooled sub-themed mini ITX! Oddly enough I saw this thread just now, having just built a Mini ITX last week (after seeing some cases at PAX). not liquid cooled but same processor, Obsidian 250 by corsair case, 16GB 2133mhz DRAM, 500GB SSD, GTX 780 overclocked (EVGA). I'd love to try the game on it...or on my liquid cooled overclocked i7 atx rig...
