That thread is almost 2 months old - don't worry about it, you're in the clear.
It is neat to see a game like this - it almost reminds of E.V.O. for the SNES, save for the fact that this is a bit more realistic.
I've always been interested in simulators like this - particularly since I started focusing on Microbio in university. It should be interesting to see how they make something like this entertaining and addicting.
Looks really cool! I'll definately give it a try if a demo is released.
It makes me think of that flash game where you're a fish and you swim around and eat everything smaller than you to get bigger. If that game was fun, this one should be hundreds of times greater.
