Limit Theory in the News

For LT discussion that doesn't fit into a more specific category.

Limit Theory in the News

Postby Flatfingers » Mon Jan 27, 2014 4:09 pm

I'd like to open up a thread for reporting how and where Limit Theory is being covered in the gaming or general press.

If you see Limit Theory being talked about or included in a video, positively or (?) otherwise, please consider taking a few moments to post it here.

(Mods, if such a thread already exists that I didn't see, my apologies and feel free to do a merge.)

First up: after inexplicably snubbing LT in their ultromegapost series on games they're looking forward to seeing in 2014, Rock Paper Shotgun has published another glowing report of LT from Craig Pearson.

Once again, the comments are highly positive, with just one commenter so far expressing some concern that procedural content can't be as good as handcrafted content. (There have already been replies to this. :))

Any other sightings of LT to share?

If there is such a thread, I'm not sure it was ever pinned. I'll pin this one until we find the other (if we find it) and then we'll merge the two.

Hey, I didn't know Mittens had eyes for Limit Theory. That's quite cool, and no doubt a large publicity boon.

Ah, yes, I see now. Not necessarily the man himself, but his goons' "name brand" space news site. Still cool. :thumbup:

golem.de (german IT news) mentioned Limit Theory briefly in their article about procedural generated worlds a while ago: http://www.golem.de/news/prozedurale-sc ... 323-4.html

Thanks for the link Flat! :thumbup:

I'm assuming this is just a starting point, with many glowing reviews to come. :)

Their last post on LT was on the 27th of January, 5 days ago... They don't usually do another article on the same thing so quickly.

Maybe something in March.

Not sure what Craig's deal is with RPS, but he may not be able to post updates as frequently as he would like.

Exhibit A:

RPS article by Craig Pearson on January 27th, 2014 at 12:00 pm wrote:If I am in a position to share it with thousands of pairs of eyes, I shall. That means you get two updates in this post, as the RPS CMS has been hidden from me for a few months, and I’ll be gone again come Tuesday. Watch these, and also demand that I am brought back at least once a month to share them with you.

Looks like RPS's Adam Smith is filling in for Craig today, with a pleasant (if brief) report on Josh's latest update video. (Included in top post above.)
