In Violent Sol Worlds we are very dependent on a an AI Overlord to hit the player with random events based off of certain circumstances. One of the simple examples is when the player gets his health up over a certain number the AI Overlord will see that and send in some sort of foe to take him down a peg. In the video here, near the end just such and event occurs. And now thanks to the news ticker the space station that is up above to help and monitor your progress sends and alert that a Fire Lizard is closing in on your position.
This example is just the tip of the iceberg for what we can add into the game for random events and stories. All the while having the ticker and news screen help you keep track of what is going on around you.
