No, Michael Jackson.

VISUALLY
STUNNING


#184

Is George Soris funding this???!


#185

You’ve been beating around the bush, but we still haven’t gotten a straight answer yet. How does dynamic gravity work in DERPSPACE? Do you just treat each planet like it’s one big ball all of the same density, or have you simulated plate tectonics, etc. and generated a unique gravity map for each world?

(But seriously, if a game had come out in the '80s where you could look at the viewscreen and see planets in character mode, baby Miguk would have loooooved that.)


#186

Can I support both Derpspace and that Chris Roberts thing? Or do I need to pick one?

#187

I’d just back the one that’s likely to release, so Derpspace is where it’s at, IMHO.


#188

I thought each mass had a unique gravity well generated by the Derpgine?


#189

I think that Gordon’s gonna find this kind of stuff trivial

#190

Of course he will. He invented those equations.


#191

In his sleep no less.

You’re a mathemagician aren’t you?

#194

Yes. Yes, those are Halsey cells. Completely procedurally generated, of course.

#196

Oh man that stability patch cant come soon enough. Really looking forward to see more of derpspace than three consecutive frames.


#197

Can I drink my coffee while looking out the window?


#198

Hell yeah. You don’t need me for that.

Oh, you mean in the game. Ummm… suuuuuure you can. Roadmap.


#199

Oh wow, how did you get the Sony product tie-in? At least I assume that’s why the letters PSP in the middle of the title are closer together.


#200

I offered to change the game name to DERVITASPACE, but they said “we can’t go for that.”


#201

No can do?
