Imagine a futuristic world right out of Starship Troopers, where thousands of heavily armed soldiers from earth defend themselves against an onslaught of aliens. With artillery strikes, a variety of weaponry to choose from (including a flame thrower!), and scheduled attacks on military outposts, this sounds like it would make the perfect videogame. This was what Tabula Rasa promised so many ages ago by a team of champion developers lead by Richard Garriott of Ultima fame. Unfortunately tragedy was just around the corner that no one, except that one guy who swears every game will fail, could see coming.
