"Have you met Eskil Steenberg?"
"My goal is not to make you more powerful than other people," Eskil Steenberg, the video game developer recently told Kotaku, as he explained which video game design rule he is breaking. "It is to let you be more respected."
This is how you make friends and influence people in the Information Age (as a writer, anyway):
One-man development army Eskil Steenberg announced a March 25 release date for Love, his procedural online adventure game and perhaps the most ambitious video game ever made by a single person.
Eskil Steenberg's procedurally-generated online adventure game is coming along quite nicely, and he's spreading the Love around later this week with the launch of the "feature complete" open beta.
A labor of love should be shared by all, so Eskil Steenberg has opened up the first alpha test for his procedurally-generated MMO Love to all comers, though be warned - the test is extremely limited.
We've spoken lovingly about Love before. Love the idea, love the art style, love the concept of a procedurally-generated MMO. Continuing the theme, we also love this extended gameplay demonstration.
