Adam Orth Making a Game - Deal With It

A preview on Kotaku introduces >Adr1ft, a non-violent first-person game that sounds loosely based on Gravity, as it "poses the player as an astronaut who begins the game floating above Earth amid the debris of a mostly-wrecked space station." The game was shown in prototype form at the D.I.C.E. Summit by Adam Orth, the former Microsoft employee who infamously tweeted "deal with it" to followers irate over the rumors about always-on DRM plans for Xbox One (which turned out to be accurate before MS reversed course in light of the outrage). In fact, Orth invokes this by telling them that creating the game was how he chose to "deal with it" when his tweets turned into an enormous PR disaster, and he suggests that some of the twists in the story are allegories to his experience. The project is being shopped around, with the hopes of creating a finished game for Windows, OS X, Linux, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Here's a bit that gives the sense of what they are calling a "beautiful" game: "Orth figures >Adr1ft could be classified as an FPX, a first-person experience, a decidedly non-confrontational game that will let players explore. They will also be on a mission, moving through five areas and confronting a series of procedurally-generated puzzles involving electronics repair. "

Deal with it?

Actually no, I choose not to. Your game sounds boring. "first person experience", going around fixing electronics in space?

Pass.
