If you haven't heard about Project Offset (http://www.projectoffset.com/) yet, I suggest you check it out, it looks pretty cool.

Now, it's been awhile since we've gotten any new info on it, but finally there's hints of a big reveal. However, we have to work for it...

This site (http://www.projectoffset.com/astormiscoming/) logs unique IPs. Every time it logs a unique IP, the bar goes up. Now, I'm assuming that the more the bar goes up, the more new stuff will be revealed. So click the link! :p

What Platform is that for?
Most likely PC, possibly XBox 360 and Playstation 3. Wikipedia lists all of those as well as Linux, but that info isn't cited.

It is on Digg. Therefore, the bar should move a lot. ha.

Yeah, I first heard about this about a year ago in an old issue of PCGaming (one with Huxley on the cover I believe). I remembered it because a team of 3 or 4 guys made an engine that's bulls***, but in a good way.

God I can't wait for more info. Just flat out epic.

Always the detective when it comes to things that take a long time, I found a binary message hidden on that page (I found it in the html code, but you can just press select all). Translated, it reads "AnmroyYd.p.YdabtoUrpD.nlcbi! - Esp. Warsaw and SkateHead"

Anyone know what it means?

[EDIT] Googled "warsaw" and "skatehead" and it came up with this (http://forums.projectoffset.com/viewtopic.php?t=932).

Oh, and I found this (http://forums.projectoffset.com/viewtopic.php?t=3289) too... curious...

[EDIT] I have deciphered the first part of the message, apparently it's converted into the dvorak keyboard layout, it says "AlmostThereThanksForHelping!"

I dont know what WarSaw is. Well, I have, it's Polands capital I think.

But I have heard of Warsow. The freeware game.

Nevermind, I figured it out. :p
Bascially it says "Almost there, thanks for helping! Especially Warsaw and SkateHead." Warsaw and SkateHead being members of the Project Offset forums.

edit: I know, ahhhh!!1 :p

Wow it's going to take a LONG time for that bar to fill.

I too saw the tech demo for this game way back when it was first released.

I can't ****ing wait!

According to my calculations, at this rate it should take another... 25 days.

It's already been more than 25 days. And it's not even 3/4ths there.

Which is why I said "at this rate." It's gotten a lot slower since then and I expect it to get even slower. If it really does work off of unique IPs, then it looks as if they're running out of people. :/

Look relatively new, I haven't seen it yet. But, it was just posted on Gametrailers. So, here it is. And if you continue watching after the trailer, more videos will start up. But, from what I see, it's for PC. Hopefully, for my sake (and others), it will be released for the Xbox 360 or PS3.

That looks so incredible.

Excuse me, I must go change my pants.

I had doubts until I saw the trailer.

Jesus Christ.

edit: but now since I upgraded my console library I see less and less reason to keep my pc up to date...hope I can run this with what I have :o

That trailer was meant for internal use only, got leaked etc - they're not too happy considering they wanted to be in stealth mode for a while. Rumor has it it's quite old footage too. Anyways, we'll see when they finally stop hiding.

They have been recruiting some Xbox 360 devs a while ago, so I think it's safe to assume a 360 version will be released.
