Humans are wierd: arcticfoxbear Humans Are Weird So there has been a bit of what if humans were the weird ones?" going around tumbir at the moment and Earth Day got me thinking Earth is a wonky place, the axis tits, the orbit wobbles, and the ground spews molten rock for goodness sakes. What it what makes humans weird is just our capacity to survive? What if all the other life bearing planets are these mild, Mediterranean climates with no seasons, no tectonic plates, and no intense weather? what if several species (including humans) land on a world and the humans are all SCOREI Earth like worldl Lets get exploring before we get out competear And the planet starts offing the other aliens right and et, electrid storms, hypothermia, tornadoes and the humans are just there. counting seconds between riashes, having snowball fights, and just surviving To paraphrase one of my favorite bits of a humans are awesome fiction megapost you don't know you're from a Death World until you leave it" For a ton of reasons, I really like the idea of Earth being Space Australa crazy-pages Alen: "Tm sorry what did you just say your comfortable temperature range is?

roving-neophyte: So I, of course, played Act 1 of Hiveswap and it was great! A lot of people complained about it being really short, and while it’s true, I guess, I still loved it. I’m probably just happy that after so many problems during development, it was actually released and actually good. Even if it’s short, it still was beautiful, I think.I drew the ending of Act 1 as my first fan-art. It’s not really how Heiress’ battleship looked like, but I just can’t live without overdetailing something, and this time it was battleship’s turn to suffer from my questionable design choices.I also was away (again, goddamn it) for a long time, due to being really hyped and having very high hopes for a game called Absolver. And then i spent two weeks realizing that it’s, well… actually not that good. Even kinda shitty, to be honest. I guess it’s a lesson for me - never believe the hype. It’s especially ironic because I never really was hyped for Hiveswap, and it was great after all. : Roving Neophyte roving-neophyte: So I, of course, played Act 1 of Hiveswap and it was great!
