Let's not get quite so far ahead of ourselves here. Pre-alpha build? Uh, no. They were showing gameplay and good-looking gameplay at that. Pre-alpha means absolutely nothing is finalized and they're still working on the engine, physics, etc.
That's obviously not the case with this game.
It did look mighty fine, though.
Game is obviously somewhere between alpha & beta.
Alpha is simply "engine" and "proof of concept". Its playable, that is always a sign that alpha is reached.
Also - how long have they been working on this baby? 3 years? If it is truly still pre-alpha, then the game won't be released until 2010.
