Love is in the Air

This page is home to Love, an unusual project described as a "first person not so massively multiplayer online procedural adventure game," being independently developed for Win32 (and possibly Linux and/or OS X) by Quel Solaar (thanks Mike Martinez and Kotaku). The site offers screenshots of the project, and information, though the summary on Rock, Paper, Shotgun gives a good sense of the game's offbeat approach:

You wonít be picking up rifles in your adventures, but more likely the plans for the rifle-building machine, that can then be utilised by everyone in your village. Part Zelda, part Tale In The Desert, part adventure shooter, and wholly abstract and beautiful, Love looks the kind of amalgam of art, programming and internet savvy that weíve desired without even being able to imagine. It has the potential, and Steenberg has the huge intellect, for this to be one of the most precious events in PC gaming.

Nonetheless itís unclear whatís going to happen to Steenberg and his project. He says heís not doing it for the money and that he only needs 200-or-so subscribers to justify running the live game. From what Iíve seen heíll be lucky to avoid being swamped by thousands, those hungry legions of gamers who want something quite different from their MMO experience, and just arenít getting it.

The art style reminds me a bit of Another World/Out of This World.

I instantly thought of Another World and Flashback when I saw the screens. Anyway, sounds interesting. I'll definitely be watching this.

I'm a sucker for surprises when it comes to gaming, I like the hell out of this project.
Maybe I'm just a hopeless romantic.
