Default Sui Generis - Post-Funding Update #30

October 6th, 2014, 17:15
Bare Mettle has added Update #30 for Sui Generis to their Kickstarter site. They discuss the difficulty and scope of their ambitions and the progress with the prelude Alpha:

Much of what we're trying to accomplish is far beyond the scope of the prelude and that's partly the idea of the prelude. It's an intermediate goal that is built from the same blocks but doesn't yet need to take advantage of everything they provide. In the end we've invested more in the prelude than we originally planned in an effort to do things right. Core to our game philosophy is that nothing is a static asset or effect, a predefined animation or scripted behaviour. We need to start with such things as placeholders while prototyping but in the end everything must be complex, mutable and reactive. If anything is possible then it should always be possible and be a natural result of the underlying simulation. We're not just talking about physics here but rather how everything has a meaning or purpose, how AI understands what things are and how they may relate to other things. Our event system and AI are aimed at providing an emergent story but we believe the most important and challenging aspect of this is the little things that drive how that story unfolds; the actions and objects that are instrumental to what actually happens and how what happens and happened previously can be perceived by AI. This has always been central to our design.

It sounds good, but these guys must be running on fumes by now. I guess they must be taking other jobs to keep it going.

What's a 'prelude alpha'? Wouldn't that just be an alpha?

If anyone wants a quick (okay, not so quick) course on how to spend a whole pile of words and not say anything at all, definitely read this update from Sui Generis. Here's the short version: still working on it.

screeg, I agree. Whole lotta talk and very little action. Stop the philosophizing and get to it.
