My good friend told me about Limit Theory - an open space exploration game developed by a one-man indie developer. His name is Josh Parnell and I am constantly in awe with what this guy is creating. He is 20 years old.
He put his project on Kickstarter, and it was successfully funded - he managed to get about $185k for his game, and on his Kickstarter page he calls the game "An RPG, RTS, and sandbox space exploration game all-in-one. Explore, trade, build, and fight in a beautiful, procedural universe."
Every time I see one of the videos he posts about the progress of the game, my jaw almost literally drops to the floor - the thing is, I've delved a bit into games programming myself, and it is no easy task believe me! Here's this guy, all by himself, creating this masterpiece!
I mean, look at it!! (I borrowed them from the official site) That's some fine ass visuals, especially for a single developer! Josh, I salute you, and I can't wait to start playing Limit Theory!
There is a dedicated Youtube channel for Josh's progress, please go check it out here.
