I just wanted to put my 2 cents in on this project. It might be too far along to even be considered but I wanted to discuss this project as a Game vs. an Experience.
My body wants nothing more than an experience where I am a passenger on the Enterprise. AI crew walking around and going about their jobs along with other passengers meandering about or enjoying a drink should be the “experience”.
I fear this as a “Game” – not because I don’t necessarily have faith or not in those who would be making it, but because I fear it becoming too ‘gamey’ and not as much of an immersive experience. Now, with the appropriate funds (ehem, Kickstarter, ehem), it has great potential as both a game and an experience. It could be much like the scope of Star Citizen even if enough pledge money hits.
Either way, I want to experience this whether it’s a game or an experience. What are your thoughts?
