I think this set is it. I didn't get the impression they would be making more or it into a theme. But currently $35 seems quite pricey even for a nice selection of tiles and small plates.

Agreed. Like the other cuusoo projects the whole idea is to sell to a market that wouldn't normally buy lego. I guess in the hope that they will then buy other sets in the regular themes.
I have already seen comments on youtube from minecraft fans (in response to the announcement video) saying things like "wow, legos are cool again! [sic]". As offensive as I may find that statement
if people start resdiscovering and buying lego sets, then the cuusoo project has been effective.
Less talking, more MOCing.
