    Looks interesting, though i wonder what would happen if you make a tree spring up in the wrong place. would that mess up the level for you, making it impossible to complete some objective. Unless of course they give you a chainsaw to cut it back down again :)

    Looks like a good use of a physics engine. It would be intersting to see whether each tree grown/hole made etc was unique because of given angle, surrounding matter weight etc.

    I'd imagine the environmental changes would be dynamically based upon the exact point your 'fracture grenade' (I made that up :D) landed. The game would be dire if it was preset to regions within which your 'fracture grenade' fell.

    Terraforming on the fly? Looks sweet. I hope the frame rate doesn't suffer if everyone's chucking them grenades all at once! Last game I remember to feature the use of the environment so extensively would be Red Faction except I couldn't create a mountain in that (could make a really deep tunnel though... :p)

    The trailer makes it look like a one trick pony. Hopefully you get some game to go along with the engine demo.

    Some new screens for this game over at teamxbox, looks and sounds pretty interesting. Not sure if it has an online mode but it would surely be one hell of a lot to handle if so:eek:
