Oh hey. Mugalo. we're jun & pate. This is basically a futuristic survival/simulation game where you parasitically control people (and their spaceships) in a galaxy whose inhabitants are aware of their simulated nature. Peace and order have been torn apart by the nacho wars, and trillions of souls are fumbling through the chaos of migration. Survive unfolding events, navigate the stars, and get to Lilith - a planet of milk and honey.

This week I took some time to begin creating these lifeforms that will populate our galaxy. they're gonna look like polygons - like low-poly animals. In a large galaxy, I suspect there are many different kinds of life: sentient gas balloons, peanut-monsters, frozen liquid vortex freaks, energy based wind-whirls, etc. Who even knows? So many possibilities. we live in a large and detailed place.

Anyway, I'm going to digress right now: Here's my freaking ISSUE with "science" fiction these days. THESE DAYS, its all just explosions, SPACE WARS, and planet-hopping space-time NONSENSE. mmmmm somebody's got the nerve to call this "science" fiction?? Ha. hhhhhhhaaaaa. ARE YOU KIDDDINGGNGDFF<M!<@#??? ? ?

Hehe, jk, lol. But this does kinda explain why I wanted to make this game. There are things like relativity, and time dilation that make interstellar travel a real terrifying trek-trip to the cosmic-walgreens. For example, if you assume, like most scientists, that going faster than the speed of light is impossible, than travelling to the closest star and back -- this is 8 years. Not to mention, if you go that fast, the rest of humanity will age faster than you. When you return to earth, your friends & family (bilateral ground walkers) could be mostly dead.

anyway... I figured I would start with the familiar and work my way outward. What's more familiar than bilateral ground walkers? idk. Yeah bilateral ground walkers are one of 18 types of lifeform that I have decided to include in the galaxy. They've got legs, torsos, and heads - they also tend to walk & run. Examples: humans, giraffes, deer. I don't want to give them all away, but there are also bilateral liquid swimmers (fish), and radial gas jets (no earth-based comparison is available here. I imagine they will be squid-like creatures that live in the atmospheres of gas giant planets).

media: I didn't got too far on these. I spent alot of time messing with quaternians (this was complicated and annoying. Quaternians aren't communicative. That means A * B doesn't equal B* A. wow!). So ya, here are some random deer torsos that I am auto generating. The hope is that these can also be morphed into gorillas, humans, and all other kinds of bilateral ground walkers. I'll have to give them heads of course.
