http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/stardew_valley.png alt-text: I have accidentally watered virtually every person and object in Pelican Town. 200 hours into Stardew Valley and few things annoy me more than wasting water on something because I forgot to equip something other than my watering can.

Re: Recommend some non-depressing sci-fi/fantasy

Re: Kickstarter Thread. Everything Goes Here.

The Mandate, which is pitching a "complete sci-fi RPG experience." Design a ship, crew it, go on missions and quests, engage in Starfleet Academy-style space combat, and isometric ground combat/RPG-style exploration. It's crazy ambitious, but I want to see it made.
