Anybody seen this? It's looking incredible for an almost one-man effort. I've only backed the Sportsfriends Kickstarter so far and wish I'd backed certain others, but I'm considering pledging for this one. The Dig is noted as a significant influence in the video, which is promising.

There's a playable alpha demo on there too which I'll hopefully be checking out soon. Bischoff's clearly a very skilled guy though.

I've been casually following an ongoing status thread of this game that's been on the adventuregamers forum going on 12+ months now.  The developer kept posting more amazing screencaps of the game in progress that blew me away.  The atmosphere looks fantastic, but I have not played the demo.  I'll definitely be buying the game though upon release.

I'm on the Wasteland kickstarter mailing list.  Those guys specifically mentioned this project.  Intriguing.

Backed.

This looks really impressive!

I played the demo.  Definitely a Sanitarium vibe going, among other apparent influences.  It does have some rough edges, but nothing you wouldn't expect in an alpha.  Creepy derelict spaceship, hiding mysteries of strange, human experimentation.  What's not to like?

Although the "exploring an abandoned research facility where horrible things happened" schtick doesn't compel me anymore, I can't not take notice that he calls out The Dig specifically as an influence.  I'll pay attention to what happens with this on that basis alone.

Sweet!

I still need to play Sanitarium, but yeah, I got those same sort of vibes from Statis too.

New $5,000 stretch goal = suicide!

Yay! Wait-- what? I'm now wondering how exactly this will enhance the experience.

This looks pretty cool... after playing Shadowrun Returns a little I'm digging the iso view anyways ;)

The latest versions of the forum software seem to have some issues. Technically you should be able to use the WordPress avatar system or Gravatar (or both), but it seems to break with some combinations. I need to look into that!
