Wick, the developer of Starship Rubicon which was published by Cheerful Ghost(yep, that's us) has dropped the first trailer to his upcoming game Crescent Loom and it looks great. Wick and I went to Steam Developer Days this year and it was fun talking to him about his ideas for the game and see how great the game is turning out.

"Crescent Loom is Kerbal Space Program crossed with the cell stage of Spore; you wire up neurons into circuits to control your little wriggling beastie and explore an alien world.

There’s so much that goes on beneath our awareness. My heart beats a steady rhythm, pumping blood through my billowing lungs down to my legs as I absentmindedly walk through the forest. I stop to admire a dragonfly glide past, wings working in perfect coordination to dart through a cloud of gnats. The croak of a frog cracks through the air in an atonal melody.

The secret to these rhythms of motion are special circuits of brain cells called central pattern generators. I have this dream of making a game that lets you — in a hands-on way — discover and get an intuitive sense for how this basic piece of our existence works. Crescent Loom is that game.

As a big fan of Wicks stuff i'll be covering this game all the way up to the Kickstarter and eventual launch. Curious what you think of that game so feel free to drop your thoughts on the trailer in the comments!

Dude! There's a demo here: http://wick.works/crescent-loom-demo/ !

I have to admit, I feel really bad about whatever I created here...
