Can't wait to see Beyond

Reminiscent of the procedurally generated worlds flaunted by Will Wright on his upcoming title Spore, the video below these carefully chosen words demonstrates a project with definite potential. If you like what you see, head on over to the Infinity website and lend your support.

If net-gossip is to be believed, Infinity is yet merely a highly impressive framework awaiting a talented game-greasemonkey to bolt on the features able to lend entertainment to aesthetics. Currently, players are unable to leave their ships and explore on foot. Frankly, I find the lack of an atmospheric re-entry animation leaves much to be desired in the realism-realization theme.

I sincerely hope that the Infinity team absorb the criticism that will likely come their game's way, and emerge all the stronger because of it. Splines will be keeping an eye on this one!
