Ok… that’s a bit dramatic, but in seriousness, the video game industry has been struggling. The cost to make a truly revolutionary and beautiful game has skyrocketed, which has caused graphics companies and video game studios to drop like flies-despite great sales and accolades.

If you can’t tell, this is the next gen game I’ve been waiting for!
