TUG? “The Untitled Game”, of course. There are two parts to TUG‘s Kickstarter summary sentence: “TUG is a multiplayer open-world sandbox-RPG using new technology and social sciences to directly involve players in the game’s design.” That first part, with the open world and the sandbox, I say yay! The second part with the social sciences, I say huh? Indeed, developers Nerd Kingdom don’t really going in to that second part all that much in their pitch, sensibly dwelling on the first, and revealing that this is an academically-motivated happening with the job titles of their talking heads. And good thing too, because it looks mighty feisty and entirely intriguing. I recommend the videos, below.
