This is a unique game.

1. It is more ambitious than anything ever attempted before by any games company in history. And the team is only 6 people.
2. It is possibly a small glimpse into the future of gaming in that procedural generation will take over from hand crafted 'worlds'.

I wish them success. But they have taken a rather large bite.
ambitious is usually a word used to describe broken games... I hope this one turns out okay.

its also often used when a game isn't as good as the concept sounds

Only if it is to describe "in despite of" type type articles... such as "He made an ambitious attempt to win the race but came in last."
In which case it is pointing out that while ambitious, it still failed. Ambition towards great things is what drives people to success as well as all too common failure. You must have ambition to attempt any venture. Describing a game as ambitious is not by any means saying it is not a good game.. that's idiotic.

I never said ambitious means bad. I'm saying that its a red flag for me when people start calling it "ambitious", as "ambitious" games rarely live up to their promise

What do you all think about the release date? I would probably guess around November 2015 ::) November is always number one for new games, and of course it won't be coming in 2014 I also think however that 2016 would be a promising year. With the exception that a lot of the game looks fully developed so far I would still guess late 2015.

The game is scheduled for release in 2015. The first trailer was put out in 2013 at VGX. also below is a link where the Dev was asked and answered tons of questions about the game.
