I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE IT!
IT'S REALLY REAL-TIME FOOTAGE IMAGES????, I LOOK THE VIDEO AND THE IMAGES, AND DROPPED MY JAW!,AND MADE WITH OGRE!.

I have only a question: ¿ It's a heavy modified Ogre Engine?, seems likely.

Well, still awesome through, this shows the open-source engines like OGRE are capable of AAA-like graphics, showcasing OGRE and this awesome games will attract more developers.

Congratulations!, keep the hard work!

Thank you all, we are glad you like it :)

Well, open Beta is not intended, but Early Access should be available on Steam during summer I believe.

Yes, all the footage is realtime from the engine from the game levels.

I don't think we have made a major changes into Ogre (I think we run on 1.7 version still) but it is rather about shaders which were completely made here, featuring deferred shading, off-screen particles, and other features.

Good thing is that we plan to release all the toolsets we are using together with the game, so I hope it will contribute to the Ogre community and allow more people to create good games easily :)...

The editor is not perfect though as we are not large company and this is not AAA production; but we do our best to make the tools efficient and good...

Something more:

We can see some gameplay screenshots of the game and the toolset which you use for the game?, i'm a curious person about how people creates their own tools for their games.

The decisions about Linux version was not made yet; so I cannot confirm, nor deny.

@hydexon - We plan developer diaries which will present our tools, more in-game information, etc; so hopefully your curiousity will be satisfied :)...

Wow, what a professional video, good work. You've found some good voice talent for the voiceover in the travelogue bit too.

Some of the particle effects reminded me of Particle Universe, are you using that?

Thanks, we are glad you like it! :)

One of the actors in the game is Tom Baker from Dr. Who series (specifically the one in travelogues :)). He was also in our first game - original Kult: Heretic Kingdoms.

Yes, we are using Particle universe as it is extremely powerful package... :) We however created our own editor to develop the particles directly in the game environments.

This is absolutely most amazing Ogre powered game!

It is totally awesome! really nice graphics, it is unbelievable what can be achieved with this engine!

Do you have any plans for releasing it as boxed version with some bonuses (collectors edition)?
