In the Kickstarter-funded ephemeral first-person exploration game Shape of the World, you’ll enter a procedurally populated environment in which your presence is the drving force.

Watch as the world grows around you with each step you take. Establish permanent monuments to mark your way. Discover a unique unfolding experience that offers an alternative to quest-driven adventures.

Developed in Unreal Engine 4 by Hollow Tree Games, Shape of the World will be released for Windows, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One in 2016.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
