I don't play video games, but this looks absolutely amazing:|
Listen to the audience throughout. You can hear the gasping and laughing at how amazingly awesome it is.
Google video is completely awexome. Also, the level of design in that game is truly inspiring.

That is insanely amazing!
That looks pretty cool. Do they make a version for the old school nintendo?
Turns out the company my husband is Snr PHP Engineer at did the backend tool they used for development and not only that, but the backend tool Google probably used to put Google Video together to show it.

I've been looking forward to that one for almost a year (more than?) now...
I hope that EA/Maxis doesn't follow in the footsteps of Lionhead... beautiful game, very poor execution.

Yeah, that's from last year's GDC. I'm going to try and get into Will's keynote this year, which will probably have an update. We'll see if I can manage to fit in the room.
Yey for procedural content!
Yeah, meaning the audience reaction is the reaction of game developers, which is maybe that much more cool since they're a little less easily wowed.
(Except that hasn't been my experience with e.g. crappy Peter Molyneux puff piece lectures.)

I totally watched the whole video. That game is going to eat up so many people's lives...probably including mine.
That looks totally awesome! Like Populous vs. Civilization vs. Jurassic Park vs. Sim City vs. Black & White vs. Star Trek vs. a million of other things. Very cool!
How much for the whole school license?!!! =) What a cool way to teach evolution and heredity through virtual modeling. However, as opposed to the mobility and feeding adaptations, I did not see a place to choose what type of reproductive organ would increase the chances of fertilization and propagation of next the generation.
yeah, i will so be getting a copy when it comes out. :)
