      I was looking at that game yesterday after the developer, Brenden Greene was interviewed on Dutch national news (NOS). https://nos.nl/artikel/2208857-deze-game-was-nog-niet-eens-af-maar-heeft-toch-al-30-miljoen-spelers.html

      The accompanying article is in Dutch, but the interview is in English if you want to watch it.

      The game looks pretty cool and I might have a go at it later although my system doesn’t meet the minimum system requirements as far as the GPU is concerned.
