(formerly Project Vega)
Well, I'm very pleased to announce the new name/logo/website/trailer for the new game I'm making, Wrack! Feel free to look around at new screenshots, the story, and even a brand-spanking new trailer! :)
I'd love to hear what you guys think! Hopefully some of you guys end up making maps and mods for this in the near future as well :)

After watching the trailer, I concur with Bank. The game is being different ... in exactly the same way as every other "different" game out there.
The levels seem very plain... Almost SLIGE like. It seems that the game was designed around the graphics engine, with the gameplay thrown in to hold it all together. For an indie project, it REALLY needs to be the other way around.

It has been the other way around. Much of the focus to this point has been on the gameplay. It's been a lot of setting/tweaking properties, working out the mechanics, coming up with attacks and behaviors, doing the level layouts and gameplay (all of episode 1 is all done, but only the first 3 levels are textured), etc. One of the levels actually has a really nifty secret that you can only access if you go to the bonus/secret level. These kinds of things don't really translate well into trailers, but I assure you a LOT of work and thought has gone into the gameplay. Whether it sucks or not is obviously for you all to judge :)
