Infinity is a massively multiplayer online game set in a persistent futuristic universe, currently in development.
I’ll be honest, the idea of this being an MMO does not interest me hugely, I would much prefer a Freespace type game. The tech that is being used however…
Infinity features an advanced procedural engine allowing for a seemingly infinite galaxy of unique star systems and planets to discover and explore, including seamless planetary landing.
Procedural generation! Seamless planetary landing! Isn’t this what man has dreamt of since he first watched Star Trek*? Just look at the video, it really is astounding.
Yes, I know the video is old, but I just found it OK.
The website is a bit quiet, and there are of course no dates yet, but this really looks like one to watch as even if this small indie developer can’t manage to complete the project a larger studio could buy the tech from them.
*Or is that dream to make it with a hot alien babe?
