    Personally, I don't mind if a setting focuses on what's important to it and leaving some of the background of the story or the world vague (if it knows what it's doing - Undertale is a great recent...

    The first thing that sprang to mind was Solium Infernum but that might not be so good with only two human players, I dunno. Gratuitous Space Battles maybe?

    Would it be too much of a pain to switch to pygame then? I've no idea about python, but I've heard it's nice.

    No. There's basically no variation at all.

    Well, it was absurdly overpriced to start with. The new price is slightly lower than a boxed copy off amazon, which is nice. But it's just discounted to what would normally be full price.

    Arcanum. The initial thought was "oooh, this is lovely", then "OK, it's meant to have a weak start, stick with it" - but I never stuck with it. I usually got as far as the bridge near the start.

    Ideas that should be things.

    Everyone else has probably had exactly the same idea pop into their head, but I've just realised the best possible use of the Oculus Rift. A licenced Knightmare game.
