First off, the game is not publicly out yet.
Second, I have it. I have played it for 11 hours.
Third, it is amazing.
Even from someone who built up hype for years upon years, and who has look forward to other games, and never had a game ever live up to my expectations, ever, someone who owns 100+ console games, and around the same for computers, the same person who is usually extremely critical of games.
This game, both lives up to everything you wanted it to be, and will surprise you over and over again.
Instant Classic. Those 12 years were not wasted.
In other news, a new demo has been released, go check out SHFF's page.
