World Exclusive: Love, The First Video


Those of you who were reading the site in February will recall my astonishment at Love, the forthcoming procedurally-generated moderately-multiplayer online world by one-man studio, Eskil Steenberg.

That’s certainly how it feels to be shown the work of Eskil Steenberg, while sat at a spare table in a GDC conference hall.
