“Sword of the Stars. I have played almost nothing else for a week... I had a fever this weekend, and I experienced dreams about the game that were so gripping, so true to life, and in their way terrifying, that I now believe the future described in the Sword of the Stars wiki to be the accurately predicted future of our galaxy.” --Tycho Brahe, Penny Arcade
