AGS Panel Review
"As an experiment in motion capture in the tradition of Another World, By the Numbers shows an exceptional amount of effort on the part of the author. This effort shines through in the various facial features and lip synching of the characters, though it comes at a price: the narrative itself is very gameplay-light and the ending can often be confusing even when you think you've made all the right choices. Overall, though, By the Numbers is a solid example of what can be achieved in just seven days with AGS and some assorted tools."

I certainly see what all the fuss is about!
This is a quite impressive technical short story.
But lowerside is that your 2D drawings look really worse than your 3D animation.
So now I demand a huge, amazingly playable game using this mo-cap/vector technology!
