A nondescript blue police box pulses into view, accompanied by a thrumbing noise.

The doors opens, out steps David Tennant, some sort of sonic device in hand, wearing a mask and nitrile gloves.

"I'm a doctor from WHO," he says. "Wash your hands." He aims the sonic device at the camera, and it activates. The screen fades to a WHO handwashing demonstration.

For the record, I have watched 2/6 of Pride And Prejudice (1995) and it is good.

That is all.

"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Cool."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"
"Earth."

: An RPG real time combat system, where blocks doesn't happen automatically, but you have a short "bullet time"/slow motion window to press [block button], and the length (i.e. the degree of slowdown) depends on your block-stat; higher blockstat => more time to react to attacks.

If you're dual wielding or dodging, the game could give you the option / opportunity for counterattacking.

If you encounter a computer in the wild, DO NOT touch it. They generally will not hurt you so long as you leave them be.

covid cw please 

stop putting difficulty settings in games

balance the game to what you think your average player will want

if that's too hard for some players for ANY reason, add accessibility settings

if that's too easy for some players for ANY reason, add optional challenge modes
