Hmm...just remembered what I said about wanting to upgrade to play that game from Offset...perhaps the time is right...

New Scientist Breaking News - Y-shaped nanotubes are ready-made transistors

Offset - Game Design

Three guys working out of their apartment...absolutely incredible. This is the first game (well, not a game yet) I've seen since Leisure Suit Larry that has made me consider upgrading to decent PC hardware (AMD Duron 1.3 GHz, and an old nVidia geforce 256 is my home rig, at present) so I can play it.

If you like games, and think Unreal and Doom are awesome, you might want to put on a chin strap before watching their demo so your jaw doesn't hit the's that impressive.

If you *don't* like games, but think that the computerized stuff they do in movies today is cool, you'll still be saying "wow".

Check it out. These are three talented guys.
