It’s been a while since we last heard significant news from Divergence, the Indie, One-Man Sci-Fi, Permadeth MMO being made by Ethan Casner. The two part presentation delves further into the history and lore of the universe, species, and player freedom in the pre-alpha version of the game. The video centers around showing off the core element of Divergence: Building. The idea of a block construction akin to Minecraft, that are affected by physics, in a sci-fi MMO, makes me positively giddy.
Also, These blocks are completely destructable.
Part 2 of the presentation goes into even more depth about player interaction, shows of some more player made buildings, and the indigenous Ennie. It is a pretty fun look at how Players might interact in this completely open world. We even see tree’s growing before our eyes!
