Yes he is being recognized (and yet to release a public demo), which is good for RevSoft and him (mostly him :Ptongue.gif). If you guys post a news article for each time he is recognized by something other than a calc site/forum, you will have a flood of news articles ;)wink.gif.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

 Actually when he was still working on the engine back in the day, he released an alpha thingy to a few people- including me. :)smile.gif Anyways, there wasn't much too it, only one very short dungeon that, after defeating the boss, nothing happened and you were just stuck in the boss room. It was pretty cool though. I dunno where I put that thing though. o.oblink.gif
