    That said, Starship Troopers the film turned out to be pretty great anti-fascism satire born out of a book that's kiiiinda really pro-fascist, so perhaps people can be inspired by Heinlein without inheriting his particular proclivities.

    "Colony ship CRPG inspired by Heinlein" is a really alarming phrase.

    Totally.

    It is only my outsized adoration for Age of Decadence that has me considering it at all.

    'inspired by Heinlein' can mean so much. What, exactly, of Heinlein's is the inspiration?

    i believe one of the conceits of Colony Ship is that the ship was designed to colonize a planet, but due to some error its now adrift in space and will never actually arrive anywhere

    Age of Decadence might have actually been too much of an oldschool CRPG for me

    The Rome inspired setting made it feel like a lock, but I stalled out on it after a dozen hours or so I think

    I hacked my save files for any of the combat classes to max all my stats, because I couldn't be fucked to git gud at the combat

    But man I loved the world, and the reactivity of it, and how drastically differently you moved through the story as the various classes. "A mercenary and a banker will interact with the world in profoundly different ways" should FEEL obvious, but AoD is one of the very very few RPGs I've played that truly embraced that. I had multiple characters that never once swung a sword.

    Giant colony ship hurtling through space. A mutiny happens at some point and generations later, the survivors have forgotten pretty much everything that has happened and think the Ship is their entire world. Mutations occur in the population and most are killed but some live in a separate part of the ship. Conflict between the two groups occur.

    Sounds like the film Pandorum. Which was not good, but ark ship with mutants drifting long term.

    To tie that back to the Wolfenstein 2 discussion (a couple levels in spoilers)
    ”Nazis have been hiding on your submarine for months and are now trying to flag for help/fight back” was a great conceit for a level.

    This is basically the original Phantasy Star games. Particularly 3.

    Edit: In fact this sounds so similar to 3 that I wouldn't be surprised if it was also inspired from that novel.

    A new Dragon Quest III speedrun technique has been discovered in Japan, leading to a record of 5 minutes, 53 seconds to complete the game. It involves literally swapping the cartridge with Final Fantasy, Dr. Mario and Kirby and then swapping back. This spawns the final scene.

    We are very close to a speedrunning era involving the runner having to own multiple games to speedrun one game.

    So this game Witchery Academy doesn't have a release date beyond "coming soon!", but man it looks like a great concept. what you had a farm sim, except instead of farming apples to make juice you were farming deadly nightshade to make witch concoctions and had a familiar? sign me the fuck up

    not even the first one of these this year


    There's a new run for Paper Mario Any% found back in February that has you swap to Ocarina of Time, perform arbitrary code execution in OoT to set up specific data on the N64 Expansion Pak, which neither game actually uses, then swap back to Paper Mario, perform another type of Arbitrary Code Execution in that to make the game read certain data on the Expansion Pak, save that data to your save file, then reload your file which loads you into the ending cutscene.
