“A deserted island…a lost man…memories of a fatal crash…a book written by a dying explorer.” Two years in the making, the highly anticipated Indie remake of the cult mod Dear Esther arrives on PC. Dear Esther immerses you in a stunningly realised world, a remote and desolate island somewhere in the outer Hebrides. As you step forwards, a voice begins to read fragments of a letter: "Dear Esther..." - and so begins a journey through one of the most original first-person games of recent years. Abandoning traditional gameplay for a pure story-driven experience, Dear Esther fuses it’s beautiful environments with a breathtaking soundtrack to tell a powerful story of love, loss, guilt and redemption. Winner of 2012 IGF Excellence in Visual Art. Supported by Indie Fund.

Do those plants use classic structure - flat mesh with alpha-layered texture, or it`s something more complicated?

And this vid got me some inspiration about nature stuff =)

Do they always wave like that? Or is it based on wind and incline?

And Gravity, I forgot to mention that.

Now it would be really cool if they faced the sun when it was out, and if the game had a day/night cycle (preferably either real-time or slightly accelerated, but not ultra-accelerated).
