Cliff Bleszinski, Design Director Epic Games
"I think this will be the coolest way to experience games in the future. Simply that... that big"
David Helgason, CEO Unity
"I’m really looking forward to getting a chance to program with it and see what we can do.”
Michael Abrash, Valve
"It looks incredibly exciting, if anybody’s going to tackle this set of hard problems, we think that Palmer’s going to do it. So we’d strongly encourage you to support this Kickstarter.”
Gabe Newell, President and Owner Valve
