Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Shape of the World

Today’s Greenlight Spotlight is on Shape of the World, a first-person exploration game with procedurally-generated environments that grow around you. First off, the game’s beauty really drew me in.

Often in games, simple mechanics lead to boring and repetitive gameplay, which in turn repels potential players. Estoc features such simple mechanics that I worry it won’t have enough lasting potential to draw a large community. However, as well as Nidhogg did (which ...
