Well, if you want something original sometime, how does this sound? http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/01/19/news_6116647.html

Whoa.  Those screenshots were a little...  Odd.

Might be a fun game.  I'll have to check that out some time.

I've known about this though for literally years.  I'm not betting money on it coming out.

Bearfoot: it was first announced on March 23th 2004, at http://allboards.lionhead.com/showthread.php?t=22411&page=1. Unless you are Alex Evans or one of Mark's mates who helped with the video, I don't see how you could have known for years...

As for progress, I think the main wait at the moment is getting the online ordering system going.

Getting it onto the DS depends on when Nintendo is going to clue in. Emailing them directly was unsuccessful, but maybe Mark can get something done via Lionhead.

Incidentally, if you want to know what it looks like in action, there's a fansite with videos at http://www.ireallydontcare.com/rdkf/index.html

Peter Molyneux had nothing to do with it though. Well, he got to see it and thought it was cool of course, but AFAIK the only other Lionhead employee who has worked on it is Alex Evans (aka Statix) who has been doing some cool technical things like making it a bit 3D.

Bearfoot: that's okay, my response was a bit over the top as well in retrospect. I'm guessing it will probably be out before Duke Nukem Forever...;)
