Dark Potential-Looking Video

This video really reminded me of Dark Potential

FOR THE LOVE OF GOODNESS, MATT. Please contact Wes Ball, and offer him in.

(trailer: Bandit looting Haven Nanosystems Corporation facility, gets intercepted by Reclaimers who want to reclaim. Nothing about this movie needs to be changed at all, it's as perfect as could be, and one of the best trailer clips I've ever seen besides)

This is what MWG can do better than GW ever could, and than any competitors have done: MWG is growing because of your (stumbling into) use of video. Please, grab this ball and run with it! Lead the charge on this, make video the powerhouse flagship - this might be what catapults DP into the arena.

Fluff is what gets people on board. I, like everyone else, got interested in MWG due to the fluff videos. This is your strength!

I love this video. Truly a great piece and with all the stunning visuals it blew me out of the water. Maybe commission this artist for some more work or even just a small bit of concept art.

Wow, just... wow.

That world is exactly how I envisioned the Dark Potential world (with some minor adjustments).

I don't know whether that excites me or depresses me (knowing that we aren't ready to do that yet).

These guys are ultrapatient, and appear to have been working on this trailer for 2 years.

2 years... just creating the look and feel of this world. Look at that gallery!

If you want to have a perfected trailer ready for the release of DARK POTENTIAL in fx. 6 months... I think now would be the opportune moment to proposition a partnership. It's not unlikely they already have a bunch of reclaimer, bandit, etc designs all ready to go, perhaps even useable parts of a story, and would be willing to fuse RUIN with DARK POTENTIAL, if only they knew of how perfectly suited this game is for their expertly crafted visuals.

Remember how just recently, you were asking for concept art that shows DP exactly as it is? Not to get all religious on you or anything, but if ever there was a blatantly serendipitous happenstance of events... I mean, sometimes fate is subtle, and sometimes it's "drunken, un-pantsed sailor dancing on a table while singing loudly" unsubtle.

Fantastic job. I expect Hollywood to be offering you unimaginable riches very shortly.

If only. Of course those "unimaginable riches" will come at quite a cost. Cost of creative freedom.
Latest exchange on the video. No one has approached the artist yet, it seems... he's a freelance, hoping for a project to glom onto!

The video was fantastic! It pretty much captured the wasteland look of the do universe. Real shame those guys are too busy :(
