I’m not writing from first hand knowledge, but I saw the game Interplanetary on Steam last night and was intrigued but also frightened.

I have fond memories of our entire dorm floor crowding in the quad at the end of the hall to play hot-seat Scorched Earth, so the idea of lobbing objects at opponents has weight with me (pun intended). I’ve also tried Kerbal Space Program, but it involves maths that are the Kryptonite to my doing-anything-that-involves-math. Interplanetary combines the two to have you launching attacks at rival planets while having to deal with the gravity of intervening bodies like other planets, moons, stars, and whatever else lurks in deep space.

I’m thinking of getting the four pack for our Monday night gaming group, but I don’t know if it’s something we’d be able to get into as a group.
