"Recently Mojang’s developer tweeted about a surplus of space games in the indie and major games market—and while it was mostly sarcasm referring to his own space game, 0x10c, it still stands as a problem in the current games industry. Browsing through Kickstarter, nearly all of the upcoming games are based in space, and a significant portion of those games are RTS-based mining simulators. It’s disappointing that the major genre of this generation of gaming is being explored in the same manner in every game. "
Sounds more like general laziness and inability to explore/exploit the medium.
Browsing through Steam's Greenlight library, there's a lot of Free-to-play games in there.
I like Sci-Fi as long isnt too futuristic looking like mass effect and halo.
I find that theme so boring on videogames for the most part.
How about a sci fi games without humans?
