Two days ago, we informed you about StarForge. StarForge is a free-to-play game that is developed by the indie team CodeHatch and is inspired by Halo, Warcraft 3, and Minecraft. The game is powered by the Unity Engine and the team has just released the game’s first tech demo. This tech demo demonstrates a work-in-progress animation system that physically simulates the character’s body and it’s reactions to objects, impacts, falls and so on.
CodeHatch plans on first releasing a series of tech demos and this is the first of them and then, they will release the entire very early alpha of the game. Once the entire game is released, they will continuously update it until it is done. And did we mention that there will be a Multiplayer mode?
StarForge will feature the world’s first full-fledged 3D tileset, fresh approach at first- and third-person shooter dynamics, where all events and objects are physically simulated, including the player’s own body, fully malleable terrain, allowing tunnelling, burrows, caves, cliffs, mountains, and hills – all of which you can make yourself, as well as fully destructable vegetation.
Those interested can try this first tech demo – directly through your browser – here. You will need the latest Unity Web Player

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
