Tis the day of celebration and smoking. Everyone feel free to fire up a big fatty bo-batty and go to town. For the smokers, I offer up a funny picture of some Lego men getting high.
The lengths some people are willing to go to in order to get a buzz
Truly these are the best of times. In other news, Starbound has finally started doing pre-orders! The pre-order can be obtained through this link and offering them your hard earned dollars, most likely via Paypal. This game looks to be aces, the developer Chucklefish needs to get some fat bucks so they can make Starbound as awesome as it can be, and it already looks pretty sweet. It has a bit of a Terraria-in-space thing going on (from someone who really enjoyed Terraria, I never played it), mixed in with a sort of Star Trek feeling with a good helping of a Hitchhiker's Guide kind of feel to the lore/universe. And those are definitely not bad things to have mixed together.
Tangent: It's interesting, there seems to be more sci-fi/comedy most other subgenres. There's been some great horror/comedies over the years..and I can't really think of much fantasy/comedy. I guess the fantasy elements don't lend themselves to comedy as easily as the sci-fi elements do. Maybe it's that one has to take fantasy a bit more seriously anyway and it's difficult to have the comedy present and have it not be a detraction.
Anyways, go buy Starbound! Indie games always need support and this one's no different. As for me, I'm waiting to hear back from the Lego men.
