Speechless... one word is still able to come out of my mouth: great !

I tried the game demo, platformer controls are quite difficult or just very bad (the main issue with platformers is the characters behaviour, too much sliding and badly designed jump ruin such a game very fast)

The vehicle demo suffer from a severe physic issue with the crane and small cube, the magnet (the rope mostly) became crazy !
And procedural map is ? I don't get it, doesn't look like so procedural. I think example is not very meaningful.

The terrain editor remind me the amazing Star Topia (the biodeck) :).
