    Looks ambitious, maybe it's the next vaporware in the making once Cleve releases his magnun opus.

    From the thread(his welcome section is a good source of lulz, highly recommended):

    His design document, with everything, is 3 pages long?
    BITCH, my designs for the Van Buren character system are around five pages long so far, and I'm not even really started!

    Yeah, but your game is not as über as his. You must equip the ring.

    I really hope this is some kind of elaborate troll or scam and this guy doesn't actually think he can create an "ubergame" with help from an unknown number of amateurs and a 4 page design document.

    Let's put the logistical and content problems aside for a second.

    Don't these people ever realize, that nearly everyone who is willing to invest that kind of effort into anything, would much rather do it on their own terms?

    I suppose he's got a bit of a boost for being "not un-famous" -- plenty must be willing to attach themselves for a ride to their "big break," and hell, probability is on the side of at least a few of them being talented.

    But why doesn't he just go fucking fund the thing? And then recruit? He's big enough to wear big-boy pants.

    RUN. Far. And away.

    I know right, it reads like a parody but no this guy really is a completely deranged egomaniac.

    Interesting that this has a 1eyedking tag.
    Heh, that's four users who have their own tags. One of them was actually accidental, hah. Bet none of you know which is it.

    99% sure he does.

    He reads like a bot feeding off random GD posts. I would say it's Cleve, but he claims to be Greek.

    I'd say it's more likely he browses /pol/. He also doesn't believe in (the commonly defined scope of) the holocaust.

    He's the only artfag that I've seen write something sensible about games as art.

    Like ADOM which he gave 5 stars?

    He's a nut, but I kind of like him, this review: http://insomnia.ac/reviews/pdp-1/spacewar/ I think he has the right idea about the "nature" of videogames
    I prefer him to all these oh-so-serious videogame journos, whining that "X in games is problematic", "we need to have a serious discussion about Y in games" or rationalising their "childish" hobby: "i enjoy it in an ironic way", "violence is bad, but the game has an important message" blablabla.
    He also makes fun of Leigh Alexander, which is always good http://insomnia.ac/reviews/artistic_art/canabalt/ ;D
    Of course this "Ubergame" is probably some kind of trolling or another scam attempt, vapourware to be at best.

    Subhumans, given his constant Nietzsche-fapping he probably doesn't mean "other than white". Also "native peoples" lol, from what I know he's greek, so he is a native in his country.

    Actually, it has never made sense to focus anger on the other man, a stranger, in a cheating situation. The woman is the one who broke the trust, and should receive the brunt of the scorn, although I don't condone physical assault on either party. To do blame the man and let the woman off the hook is just another form of white-knighting.
