Planet Mining

So I really want to make a space game…. why can’t I pick asteroids for inspiration — it would be easier. Instead, the ‘other’ classics sparked my imagination and fuel my motivation for this project. What classics? How about Starflight, Star Control, Sun Dog, Universe (Omnitrend), TradeWars…. yes those are big shoes to fill!

The first two classics I loved had planetary mining as a key element to the game design. Resource gathering in those two games required dropping a planetary lander down to a surface and scrounging around for some ore. ¬†Time to play with some ideas for planets and a terrain for mining…
