is officially funded, and currently has collected pledges for
over $62K of the $50K goal for the first-person shooter. Meanwhile, a
from West Games has an unusual story, even in the context
, which is saying something, considering all the
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-related controversy embroiling the upcoming shooter. They
describe receiving an email of support from Russian President Vladimir Putin,
saying they initially were as skeptical about this as any of us would be, before
outlining how they've managed to convince themselves that this may be
legitimate. Since things are so quiet in Russia right now, Vlad apparently wants
to do a little gaming, as part of the translation of the letter reads: "If you
give me the chance to play the alpha version of the game, when it is ready, then
I invite you in advance to the Kremlin, to meet personally, be ready to play a
little bit and talk about the interests of young people, the gamers of our
country." Thanks Rhialto.

It was 45 years ago today that man first walked on the moon, which is awesome.
It was less than four years later that man last set foot there, never to return,
which is not awesome. Here's a hope that mankind refocuses priorities on
returning to making giant leaps soon, as I'm not alone in believing that the
long-term future of humanity relies on eventually colonizing other worlds.
