    Does this have a publisher already? They really nailed it with the redesigned art style.

      I agree. Before the game caught my eye for being a FPS/RPG kinda thing, without the numbers rolling on your accuracy (Fallout 3...), and the "500,000 unique weapons" dynamic generator whatever thing also sounded intriguing. But now with the new art style, this game really stands out and I'm super excited for it!

      I guess I'm the only one not sold on this new style? It looks pretty and all, but that's just the thing. It's supposed to be like a post-apocalyptic gritty world, and this cell-shaded, cartoonish style runs counter (in my mind) to anything related to the word "post-apocalyptic." However, I'm not saying I won't play it and give it a chance, as I'm sure it'll probably grow on me.

        I was anticipating this game until I heard about the rendering style change... but after seeing it in motion I'm not bugged by it. It's not exactly Cel-Shaded, which I hate... it has an illustrated or inked look... more of a comic book than a 1980's cartoon.
