    Looks absolutely disgusting. And also this sounds like The last federation which is probably a much better game anyway.

    Future space faring humans will be as white as cottage cheese and able to photosynthesize like in Knights of Sidonia (this makes no sense)

    I love SPACE and (hard)sci-fi so I am loving that it seems to be getting more attention.

    Too bad everything is shit.

    I will only play if that Isaac Arthur dude narrates some of it, because then at least it would be funny.

    This actually makes sense. Blacks may be better adapted for life in space as they suffer less from zero-gravity bone loss. This may give them the advantage in space colonization and thus see them being a significant force.

    That's the guy who sounds like Elmer Fudd, yes? That'd be amazing, Elmer Fudd into space.

    Better adaption to zero G pales in comparison to Actually Having The IQ Necessary To Operate Complex Machinery.

    Yeah it's the speech impediment which makes it hard to pronounce the letter R, and to make the joke complete it's called rhotacism.

    It makes you sounds like a baby. VEWWY HAWWD TO SAY WOWDS WITH AW

    Fermi Paradox's demo is available on Steam during Next Fest. It is surprisingly decent and un-woke, if you exclude a trigger warning at the start which states that "this game contains war, devastation and loss of life".

    Yes, but since only a small elite minority will ever into space...

    I dunno about baby. It makes you sound like Elmer Fudd, and Elmer Fudd in space is absolutely hilarious. That unique accent is what makes him recognizable. The other cruelly-named speech impediment is the lithp.

    You're kidding, right? Or shilling? I just started and this is already the wokest shit I've seen lately. African American astronaut right from the start, globohomo agenda in your face... Vegan agenda even, for fuck's sake. Also, check this:

    And the game is all about this shit, it's fucking insane.

    This statement from the link:

    ...is not entirely true, since during my playthrough I didn't encounter either the "meat" event or the "rainbow protests" event. Only the general outline is scripted in the demo, meaning that a "crisis" of sorts will occur no matter what. For example, in my playthrough it had to do with hydraulic fracturing and oil in general.

    But I see your point.

    Yeah, he probably chose the tutorial and didn't realize that it heavily scripted but still. Also, one of the first screens literally tells us that social injustice leads to dystopia. If this is un-woke then I'm horrifyed by what the real woke might be :D

    I even downloaded it after your comment. It's good I didn't launch it.

    Into the trash it goes.

    You guys should have paid attention to the thread in strategy and simulation where I point out where the devs outright say they're intentionally setting out to push a progressive agenda. :M

    Looking back, just before the shitstorm started, when even somewhat cynical guys here, me included, beleived there's still a chance that something good might come out of the certain vapourware project solely thanks to Mitsoda's presense, they sure look like fools now. Turns out, it was up to no good for 100% all along, judging by his participation in such a sweet piece of sjw propaganda. What a fucking shame.

    I kept pointing out all this time that it was Brian's idea to get Cara Ellison involved.

    I don't see anything wrong with this position. Maybe your goal is to bring about the Imperium of Man. FOR THE EMPRAH!

    Saw this on Steam. Didn't put it on my wishlist because the screenshots and description seemed really meh, and I put all kinds of half-baked trash in my wishlist.

    Also, lol at that "cannot go into space travel if we don't destroy the meat industry!" bit.
    Gotta survive the harsh space with soy capsules, I guess.

    This is so repulsive that I couldn't play it even if I wanted to.
