So! Earlier today I sat down and read “Sandkings”, by George R. R. Martin, about a man who buys four differently-colored types of alien ants and puts them in a terrarium, where they live, grow, fight and die for his amusement.
Then I got to work on my game, Planitia, in which…four differently-colored bands of little people live, grow, fight and die for the player’s amusement.
Then I got kind of weirded out.
If you look out your window and see a giant eye looking at you from beyond the sky, try not to wave. It really weirds him out when the ants aknowledge his existence…
