I've been watching/listening to a lot of Isaac Arthur lately. For instance,


Uh, why did that not work?

Edit: replaced the video with one much more representative. That was by far the most technical video I'd seen him show.

I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I enjoyed that video. I found it to be informative and objective. Even though he claims it's his favorite game, he didn't go out of his way to glorify Star Control 2 as though it's completely perfect and has zero faults. Great overview that really hit the high points of the game. Thanks for sharing it Alvarin!

I thought it might inspire some of the regulars here to give this game a try. Someone might enjoy it.

It is Passover, so the song "Exodus" might be appropriate. The animation depicts a very simplified version of power dynamics at this tiny spot.
