I'm not judging it yet.
as I said: "I'm not sure what to think, I'm still processing it."
I just showed my concerns about the direction its taking. Each has his own preferences about style for Descent, mine are "realistic", for others its "cartoonish".
Btw, there is no question about it , I AM backing it.
Edit, btw2 Descent 1 and 2 looks cartoonish to you today , for me as a child in 96 at that era of graphics, it didnt look cartoonish.
I can see now that Descent was never about being realistic. It was always rather cartoonish, but I never thought so in the 90s. I'm not expressing my opinion, I'm just saying what Descent 1, 2 and 3 was. That's all.
I love both directions here: D:U and Overload. I never once thought to myself in D:U, "geez this is too realistic". I LOVE the realism and the graphics, but I also love what's being presented by Revival Productions. There's a realism with the graphics combined with the somewhat cartoonish element. It's much more like what D1 and D2 and D3 is. There's a very strong feeling of a fantasy world but with great graphics. That lighting is very nice. Oh, and the graphics they are presenting right now are far better than what's in Sublevel Zero. I'm not seeing a similarity to that game. From my limited experience in Sublevel Zero, it feels like I'm stuck in that old computer in TRON 2.0.
Anyway, you are judging it. If you weren't judging it, then you wouldn't be saying that their bot isn't from a Triple-A game in 2016. You are judging it as though it's supposed to be a Triple-A game. You're comparing it judgmentally to D:U, and that's not fair because it's too early to do any judging or to make any comparisons. Let's just wait and see. I also feel that they aren't trying to compete at all; they are just trying to create what they want to create. It's all art, and it's beautiful.
I never said that D1 and D2 looked cartoonish to me in the 90s. I'm saying that Overload is trying to look like D1 and D2 and even D3 with greatly improved graphics, and that's why it looks cartoonish to you. It's a fantasy world. Yes, D:U is too, but it's a different kind and there's an attempt at having strong realism.
Also, this is in the faq
"We understand that multiplayer is hugely important, but we made the decision to focus initially on creating a rich and full single-player experience. We hope to develop a standalone multiplayer version in the future."
I think this is a very wise decision on their part since D:U is multiplayer-only right now.
