    Man, existence had crazy framerates when there wasn’t any life, or sky.

    Hah, fantastic. I reckon Crytek pinched His source code.

    I wonder what language he used.

    Hmm, wasn’t this on RPS a few weeks back as well?

    Loved this strip, though.

    The Lord doesn’t use agile development methodologies.

    No unit tests? No refactoring? No incremental development? Who was his Business Analyst?

    I bet he doesn’t even have a set of use cases for all of creation.

    For shame.

    By the way, was this strip making fun of Far Cry when it first came out I wonder? Or maybe it’s just poking fun at all games, hah.
