I watched the video (a few nights ago).

While it looks good, I think the "shininess" or "glowiness" of everything is too much and would become tiresome after a short while.  That may improve once they make some real (textured) maps.

I also thought that 1/3rd of a million dollars (Australian) is a heckava lot to ask for a game that is essentially Quake3 gameplay.  Matchmaking is offered by Quake Live currently.  Easy editing would be nice, though it has been done before (Cube / Sauerbraten).

I'll be interested if they actually raise the money -- a real masterstroke of marketing if they do.
