Anybody else check this out? it's a pretty "indie" game (also read as "by foreigners") that's been released on Steam, based on the Source engine. It's $20 to buy it, but they have a demo available, it's pretty cool. It kind of plays like an RTS, but with the controls of an FPS (which works surprisingly very well). It has a sort of "old school" feel to it, very much like Rez (you could almost mistake this game as being some sort of sequel).

I want to play as Dinosaurs and ultimately eat both the Darwinians and the Red Viral Infection. That's how I roll.

My brother bought it and has been playing non stop since its release. Its kinda neat, uses very low polygonial units to have 100's on the screen at once.

Alucard, any word on this game's soundtrack? I heard one nice techno track during a cutscene or something in the demo, but it was dead-quiet during the game. This game could use a nice soundtrack playing in the background.
