I'm a bit disappointed that VtV doesn't appear to be very active anymore... I JUST read the review on Bytten yesterday and it's still on their 'latest reviews' list. It's very cool conceptually, very cutting edge, and the graphics are more than passable IMO. Hell, I still play roguelikes for that reason!
I'm psyched about playing this game (although I'm apparently having issues with the 945GM -- 224MB shared memory -- that I emailed my trace.txt to Calvin about) and waiting semi-patiently for a response.
Just thought I'd throw it out there. I've got a few friends that might very well be interested in it, but I really can't endorse it until I've played it.
