    The game is currently less than 1 GB on harddrive .
    The memory usage is under 2GB.


    Could you for the sake of efficiency fuck off now?

    The memory requirements take into account you need to run your operating system. Depending on the bloat of the operating system that's typically 1 to 2 gigabytes nowadays.

    But the real inflated specs is because I might just end up using more resources. At some point I will be adding the more organic looking structures, those I want to have the freedom to use a ton of poly. Also I'm not dynamically unloading resources either, it's all in memory at once.

    CPUwise the loading screens in the game are mostly artificial with forced wait times. But they also present opportunity to do processing *IF* I ever need to. I believe random encounters benefits from this already.

    Also both Fallout and Duck Nukem have loading screens.

    One of the game's inspirations may be Duck Nukem, yet I intend for more complex models as I go. Especially for passageways which you can get a sample of what I mean if you traveled them. (One of them showcases some organic structures.)

    To be clear Duck Nukem (not made by me) is not Duke Nukem Forever. Chasing down ideal technologies no longer interests me at the moment.

    Other games have come to my attention. Like Hylics, Xenoclash, E.Y.E, System Shock (maybe), Deus Ex (the one with jcd), hell even CAvellone's Planescape Torment looks interesting. Considered the best RPG of all time by some (how could I not notice?)

    People call my game vomit but I think it has a lot of compatbility with other titles yet to be explored. The cruelty squad comparisons I keep getting make no sense to me. Pure recency bias.

    Anyway I've said consistently I hope to make the game as good as New Vegas and Outerworlds. Delusional? Maybe.

    THE POINT BEING: Somewhere in all that having more gigabytes to leave room for creativity is a good thing.

    I also find larger games have more creativity. All those gigabytes are filled to the brim with creativity

    Good news. Your game is already better than Outerworlds. Your halfway there, son.

    If you ever make merchandise for the game, could you make a mask that looks like this guy, I'll rob a liquor store wearing one and your game will be all over the news or the security footage at least. The investigating officers will "follow the money" as is customary, and install something called Redaxium on their Lenovo police laptops. Instead of solving the perfect crime, they stumble upon what appears to be the perfect game. Word of Redaxium spreads like wildfire through the ranks of law enforcement officers; and while the police are busy playing Redaxium, the society spirals into chaos. The government makes their last stand at Capitol Hill but it's too late, millions of people wearing Prospermasks march towards them like in the ending of V for Vendetta, or Occupy Wall Street. They are shouting slogans like "we are anonymous" and "I am Spartacus!" Anyway the streets will flow with the blood of the bourgeoisie, and once the Great Culling is finally over, the country will be ruled by six ruthless gangs: Blastquacks, Zaltenjocks, Romfores, Ethicsburgs, Wildpoints and Prospercanes. This time in history will be known as the Warring States period. What happens after that, well I guess you'll just have to play the game. If you want a picture of the future, imagine this guy staring straight into your soul, forever:

    "no, I'm spartacus!"

    How what?


    Gimp Mask
    A curious fan fiction men.

    The story behind most models not having eyeballs or hair is I don't have time to worry about such minutia yet.
    A warning though, character designs are not final.

    If I want to I can keep old version of the character as a random encounter.


    ExposedBrainMatter
    Weird you're right. The game does have music. I'm planning to update video soon anyway.

    edit: Updated the trailer.

    What CPU are you using? 24% seems very high - unless it's on a Celeron or an FX 4100.

    This is progressing well I’ll probably wait until pre-alpha to buy.

    Finally a spiritual sequel to this masterpiece. Once Redaxium is out of Early Access I will buy it for sure.

    Patch 0.59 is out.

    I think I'll be returning to a more sane patching schedule now. I can do better work by slowing down and planning the batches of changes more carefully.
