So, instead of working on a huge project (Wastelander), I was wondering if anybody would be interested in playing a philosophical space journey game, the likes of movies such as Interstellar and 2001:A Space Odyssey. I have developed a simple outline, but it still requires a lot of editing.
The year is 2043 and the earth has exhausted all of it’s fossil fuels and energy. NASA, the organization people always knew has been dissolved and people have been forced into agriculture. Dust storms have become common and hunger runs rampant. You, a once crop dusting pilot, along with a ragtag group of others are sent into space as one last hope for humanity to save the dying Earth.
Make choices, explore the distant space as you travel and manage time. Cooperate with your team or destroy it with negligence. Learn more about your team or remain anonymous to them. Question morality as you travel through the distant stars. But most of all, work to discover a way to save the Earth or find a new one.
This game is a work in progress and is bound to be completed by next year
NOTE: For those asking me if I have cancelled Wastelander, no I haven’t. It’s just that I’ve been very pre-occupied with things and haven’t gotten enough time to design and code Wastelander. Plus, since I’m only a 15 year old, I’ve got my CIEs and exams coming up so that’s been troubling me too. I promise you that everything is in fine shape and you people will get Wastelander by 2017 and that it will be the greatest COG game you’ll ever play.
