Hi there! Your game is stuck in a loop where it is installing but never left any local files for me to delete so it knows to try again. How do I refresh my install of your game since it seems to be broken?
Well, Bartwe of the Staxel project retweeted your announcement and I like the heck out of procedural games. Problem is, most end up being a huge disappointment since many don't get properly implemented. (my steam is a graveyard of abandonware)
I am always looking for new stuff along this line since I think, as a game design element, procedurals help make repeat play interesting and fresh. Plus, I have always imagined a peak moment for procedural gaming where the walking simulator joins forces to create an endless, continuing world filled with wilderness as well as metropolitan places. Or, something like the trucking sims but it's a world with new and interesting terrain and roads that challenge and beckon the player.
I see that your piece is likely a tool one could use to make cities quickly for games. I like that idea and see it as a useful tool. All I would like to do with it is make custom assets and see how I could balance the arrangements out. Then I would take interesting parts of the generated city and try to illustrate them as if they were real or try to make them in another engine and see what they look like fleshed out. Having the engine to some of the basic work for me would allow me to spend my energy taking a nuanced procedural component and flesh it out into a full concept.
As it stands, this was a blast to play with. I really would just like a game where I could walk through an infinitely expanding city at a resolution somewhere beneath Grand Theft Auto 5 so it could stay crisp and interesting. I can't tell you how many hours I dumped into Bernband and that place never changes.
