Have real high hopes for this game/engine since it just looks fantastic, the quality looks really professional.

The only thing that bugs me is naming both the engine and game FLARE, it does get a bit confusing.

Thanks for the plug!

Version 0.19 will be the first Beta release of the engine, and along with that we'll be obsoleting the "flare-game" alpha demo and introducing new content. This new game will have its own name, and Flare will be the engine's name.
