We’ve added some things to the roadmap that might push development time out a bit. The main thing is that DERPSPACE™ is set in a technologically advanced future whose denizens would probably have the capability of simulating the reality of previous centuries. So, in DERPSPACE™ players will be able to enter a completely accurate simulation of 21st century Earth and, inside that simulation, play DERPSPACE™.
We anticipate this feature will require a couple extra months of development time. Do you know anyone who can make a photorealistic 3D model of the Earth and all its locations using ASCII graphics? Preferably someone who will accept payment in the form of access to my Steam backlog.
I’m glad to see that when Star Citizen removed their roadmaps due not wanting to be tied to any inconvenient “promises”, Derpspace is not following suit and is giving a long-term roadmap to us faithful players. Well, obviously none of us are players yet, but we’ll definitely be once the alpha ships!
Thanks for the update. I’m sure we all would rather you make DERPSPACE as perfect as possible, no matter how long it takes (as long as, in the meantime, we can continue to purchase ASCII ships that may or may not ever appear in the game). Masterpieces cannot be rushed.
