I am liking the FAQ and feature list. Looks like a wish list I'd spend 30 minutes typing up, so naturally I am rather excited.
So this is even before a kickstarter campaign? Hope they get it together one day, but it just seems to get further and further from the realm of possibility.
Too bad they don't get with Serellan about his project. Between all of them they might actually get something happening. This thing has been pre-alpha for 5 years or more now.
They claim they are done experimenting. Now work is done polishing the features. Examples are the UI in the new video and bringing up rifles to look down the sights (the current animation looks too stiff and artificial).
It won't be long until we see something playable. They are looking at a early 2013 release. Might get pushed back, but not too far off.
Takedown still has a long way to go. They are making progress looking for an office and are hiring developers at the moment. They did not want to merge as Christian and John had different views on how to make their games. They talked and are wishing each others team good luck, and maybe there might be some development cooperation (textures, animations ect.) but that remains to be seen.
