Twinsen Slower then light FPS game O_o

I think this deserves some attention:
http://gamelab.mit.edu/games/a-slower-speed-of-light/

Its a FPS game where the speed of light itself can be slowed down, and the engine accurate simulates all the time dilation, doplar and other effects.
Its also going to be a open source engine for Unity, so we might see many games use its ideas.
I for one look forward to the picard maneuver becoming a fps technique

Unusual, unexpected idea for a game... and that's about it.

Must be indeed quite amusing for the MIT team though and students of that area.

Very interesting... The controls are sloppy, but I get why, it still gets annoying to pick up all these orbs.

Even after the explanations, I don't fully get everything that happens in there.

Very interesting x 2 !
