The first time many saw images from Diatomic one word was in their head: Geometry Wars (okay, that's two). The similarities in appearance are definitely there: closed-border shooter (attention: new term coinage alert!) and old-school wire-frame graphics...

I'll definitely get this unless something turns me off.
In any case, Diatomic devs have stated that they're working on a site and trailers and the like for release in a couple days so keep your eyes peeled.

This game initially interested me, but nothing about it has come up. Hopefully nothing has happened to this game, since it is a very interesting concept and would recieve a lot of attention... if more information was given to help spark the interest.

very bad controls for the tail, impredicable and can be painfull to the wrist after just some minutes. If there was a option for the classic controller could be a good game.
