more planets, more space junk… more UI!

 

 

OBS is giving us a lot of trouble capturing video from Corona for some reason, so here’s a Flash mockup:

And Pluto was a cosmic janitor…

Pluto has been assigned the task of Cleaning Up All The Crap From The Annoying Earthlings. Absorb and grow, dear friend.

Help the universe de-clutter useless junk like astrocats, fishbones, asteroid belts, dwarf planets, weird stuff like the ISS and gargantuan space telescopes.

‘What does it say on the side?’

‘Hubble…’

‘DID YOU SAY… RUBBLE?’

‘No, I–’

‘Get rid of it!’

This is the kind of sophisticated dialogue you might expect from a depressed planetoid.

 

…anyway.

…this is our orbital test :)

Tune in next time for the T.R.U.M.P.-3000 astrobots… otherwise known as Earth’s Greatest Offence!

‘There is so much punctuation in this name! I cannot… I just cannot handle…’ -the Pluto formerly known as a planet

The longer TRUMPbots are in space, the more rubbish they spit out. Unlike standard space junk, Pluto derives no energy boost/mass-gain from coming into contact with this nonsense, and must avoid it instead.

And Pluto was a planet

pluto is sad

poor sad little dwarf planet

You are Pluto and you’ve been absolutely miserable ever since you got demoted to a mere planetoid. O humiliation!

The entire solar system (accursed Earthlings!) is laughing at you, or so you feel–nay, know, in your sad planetoidary mind.

There is only one recourse. You, poor little dwarf planet, must slingshot yourself out of orbit and out into deep space, absorbing the mass of space junk and eventually other planets to become the size of the very sun.

The solar system mocks you.

Take it. It’s yours.

More details forthcoming as we figure out what we can or can’t do in the timeframe. :)

Coders can code entire galaxies in the blink of an eye. Right?
