I expect DERPSPACE devotees to be less bound by linear conceptions of spacetime.
I have a globular concept of space and time and I am happy to report that derpspace has entirely lived up to, nay surpassed!, our wildest dreams of what it can evolve into it.
No I am not making this post while a sentient video game is wrapping tentacles around my neck and balls.
When this project started, everyone knew that this was not a simple game that could be done a few small years. This is but the perfect start to a new world that will span generations.
Feel lucky that you get to experience the events leading up to the birth of a new stage of humanity.
Anyone expressing any doubts or insatisfaction will have their preorders cancelled and (half) their money refunded.
Can you refund inspiration, sir?
Can you refund a global transformation of consciousness?
Can you refund blood, sweat, tears, and other bodily fluids?
Can you refund the agony of a tormented creative soul?
If so, great! Just don’t ask for dollars.
I am sure the money raised so far has been
funneled to offshore accounts, spent on making this the best space game ever.
All space and no atmosphere? :P
Gordon promised the spaciest game ever, not the most atmospheric! Don’t give in to the feature creep!
But I thought that was one of his Kickstarter stretch goals?
You know, sometimes you gotta let the air out of these stretch goals, to keep things focused.
localization.res: -2869,en-us,"barren planet" +2869,en-us,"planet with atmosphere"
Stretch goal fulfilled!
Like letting air out of your tires for better traction?
@Gordon_Cameron any consideration of a possible engine switch?
I’d recommend the Adventure Game Toolkit. Remember to download the Turbo Pascal patch, though, because it breaks on machines with a >400Mhz CPU (like any of us have that!)
Or, maybe even the
Something as ambitious as DERPSPACE requires the most cutting-edge of engines.
You know we never went in depth on required game specs need to run this.
Will this game require more than 640K of memory ?
Shouldn’t be a problem. After all, the universe runs without any RAM at all!
Instantaneous streaming from the cloud?
Is DERPSPACE planning on STADIA exclusivity?
I heard it’s exclusively on the Starlink constellation currently being launched.
If DERPSPACE considering a buyout of SpaceX?
I doubt it, because a Babbage Difference Engine port is a stretch goal.
Due to my growing enthusiasm for this project, and my unquenched anticipation, I took the liberty of creating a little fan art for DERPSPACE. Maybe one day there will be a support tier where whales can design and submit their own ships for inclusion, but either way I’m sure the mod scene will plug a lot of these holes.
I call this one the Fireball XL5-2.
