For those of you who are interested in the project and how it's going, they have released a demo version. So far it doesn't really work well, only the Terran work more or less, but the SCV's bug and some buildings are missing. The Zerg kinda work, the Toss probes don't work. This is what I heard, tho, I do not have TFT yet so I was not able to test it out.
I don't see anything sad about it. If some guys someday didn't make the Doomsday engine, I would still be stuck with the good old shooters all on DoxBox (any Doom fans here?). I'm thankful to guys like these that update games. I think it even looks a bit better than Warcraft.
