Has been looking interesting, might be an interesting feature here.

It's also available in the IndieGameStand store.

It's a 48H feature on Groupees for 1USD.

Not sure what I'm supposed to do in the game though.. It's a small sandbox with 'dragons' that I can
kill then a random sandcastle pops up starting sprouting floating bears that eat the leftovers of the
dragons I killed :o

It certainly looks like an odd game. I know it's early in development but I think my concern with it would be: what is the object of the game? I did not see that mentioned anywhere and it's certainly not made clear. From the videos I saw it looks like it doesn't even have one. For that reason I could not in good conscience vote for it on Greenlight.

Got it from Groupees, didn't have much time yet to play due to their second bundle :D
The whole feeling of Magic Carpet won me- objective or none, i don't care :D

Well I read up on what Magic Carpet was like. This "game" really doesn't seem to have any purpose or objective at this point so I hesitate to even call it that. It's more "fly around pointlessly in a sandbox while shooting stuff and deforming the terrain for no apparent reason". Sorry, but this gets a big no from me. It's way too underbaked and there is no game there to actually play at this point.
