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.
That fan art and its magnificent 2 engines brings up another question, @Gordon_Cameron will we have to increase our pledge if we want more than 1 propulsion engine on a given ship?
The answer is always yes.
We almost need a dedicated wiki for all this information.
We at DERPSPACE ™ always appreciate free labor creative participation from the fan base.
Dude, if you guys are trademarked you need to get a lawyer on this guy ASAP. Last year he up and ripped you off, and almost two years after your own announcement:
Who the hell is Greg?
It is already version 18.104.22.168 ?
There is a playable demo? :o
Trademark lawsuits are a great way to get press and spread even more knowledge about the game!
