The RPG Scrollbars: Old Habitats Die Hard

NONONOAIIIIIEEEE – Habitat Is Gravity: The Strategy Game

The second I finished watching Gravity and firing the contents of my stomach out of my mouth's airlock, I knew someone would turn that experience into a game. The movie, I mean. Not the projectile vomiting. I did not, however, think base-building strategy would be the first to make me think, "Hey, that reminds me of the part where it felt like my heart took…
