    This doesn't look like my sort of thing, but all the best to Brian. Hopefully, he can get the satisfaction of something he worked on actually releasing this time.

    Good for Brian, Hardsuit and Paradox did him dirty.

    At least it doesn't sound like he's going to have to suffer the abomination of someone else rewriting his work for a franchise he's linked to, since it sounds like whatever studio inherits this curse is going to be redoing a bunch of stuff.

    Also, gardening? Okay. I suppose I will allow this.

    True sci-fi is humanocentric like SystemShock, SMAC and SOMA. Get those furries out of my lawn.

    Not really much of any substance to see here yet, but I'm not sure why the reaction is so uniformly negative.

    All right, the art style is awful. But the concept of a God game in space (some hybrid of MOO, Populous, Balace of Power, perhaps?) is a niche that really hasn't been over-explored yet, so that alone deserves some interest. Minus points for the "blobs sprinkled uniformly across a flat gameboard" representation of space.

    And yes, their musings come across as a bit proselytizing, but if the general gist of it is that successful expansion across the galaxy is the antithesis to a malthusian scenario affecting single-planet-based civilizations, I'm fine with that. If there are really are multiple viable strategies to explore (i.e. anything from United Federation of Planets-style peaceful cooperation to a culturally homogeneous Galactic Empire), all the better.

    Don't really see how the game mechanics work yet, so I'll reserve judgement.

    The fact that the trailer seems to be showing gameplay footage, and that said gameplay footage seems to consist entirely of 1) random events and 2) picking one of 3 options from a list does not inspire confidence that this will be a fun game to play. I expect a very complex and mechanics driven CYOA, not an actual game. The fact that it is described as a god game also makes me think that it will not really have win or lose conditions, but rather just a sandbox for the computer to randomly generate events in.

    I could be wrong, and the concept is intriguing enough I'll probably keep paying attention to it, but the odds of it being a good game are pretty low right now.

    Another shitty "game" huh.
    The Fermi Paradox: Niggers in Space, now with even less gameplay mechanics!

    But at least there's a pretentious title!
    That the most likely explanation for the paradox is indeed that there simply are no alien civilisations?
    Nah, NIGGERS IN SPACE! If niggers make it, so will the aliens, right?

    Meh.
    Fuck this industry!

    Tried the demo and it's a solid concept what with managing multiple species' developments/coming into contact with others, but the problem is execution airs on the narrative CYOA style. With four factions I had in my game bringing up their events, galaxy camera constantly panning all over the place and general slow transitions between screens I can see this turning into a hair pulling affair after your galaxy is populated further. In a sense, this seems like a game you'll play once or twice to see most of the narrative events and call it a day because it lacks that tangible strategy bite. I get the feeling that wasn't their target audience to begin with, though.

    I also tried the demo and found it shit. You click around the screen for random events, then more random events happen. Occasionally you get a choice of 3 different outcomes, and those aren't very engaging either.

    Isn't that skin color like dominant? What are genetic rules for mixing hispanos, blacks, deep blacks, Chinese-like, and people who's skin max tan is nearly white?

    I'm glad someone is finally making a videogame adaptation of the cinematic classic.

    I think the easiest answer to the Fermi Paradox is readily apparent to anyone who has ever played a Space Strategery Game: Imagine such a game being played out for real, only one player gets a 500 turn head start.

    is there still a game? Will the other players even have planets left to spawn on after 500 turns of the game?

    Question better than this game.

    I think if there is lots of threats to deal with. Pollution, internal wars, disease, lack of resources, ... Then maybe... yes?
    However looking at the earth now, I give no chance to other species to evolve comparable brain to humans. Unless its some genetic engineering.
