Eight-to-Twenty-Minute Empire

Simple, yet…

SPACE-BIFF!

It's impossible to mistake Ryan's distinctive visual style.

If you’re a faithful reader of Space-Biff!, you’re likely well aware of my man-crush on Ryan Laukat. Not only did I enjoy his debut title Empires of the Void a little under a year ago, but I was also lucky enough to interview him at SaltCon back in February. You could say we have a history. You might also not say that, but all relationships are subjective.

Anyway, Mr. Laukat has now proven himself possibly the most efficient Kickstarter-er of all time, as he has just successfully shipped two projects, both two months ahead of their estimated release date. And while the universe didn’t implode at the news, it sure came close. We’ll be looking at City of Iron sometime in the near future, but for now let’s check out Eight-Minute Empire, Ryan’s filler-game take on the Civilization genre.

When big cats purr~

I thought it would be just another boring Sunday. I thought I would just spend my time revising my university notes and fall asleep from it. I thought that changing the notification settings on my Facebook account would just amount to nothing.

And then my Lumia alerted me of Indera Motor’s last day for showcasing their F-Type.

AND AWAY I GOOOOO!!!~

You know you got my attention when your front door car is coloured red n_n

Apparently I.M. is having a showcase on their cars, the Jags and the Rovers. If you know me, you would know that I have a dislike for almost any form of urban SUVs crossovers, so I’ll just be showing the Jags, mmmkay?

3 big cats in a mall? That sure sounds like it could put a grin on my face.

I have to say this though: I don’t know what to expect from a Jag. I know that Mr. Clarkson loves Jags. I believe that the Prime Minister of Britain is driving a Jag. I know that Jags are, in general, the blue-collar sisters of the Aston Martin.

Despite all this, Jags don’t seem to give me any form of emotional excitement in the same way that an Aston or a Ferrari does. That can be a good thing too actually…

The mouth, just look at it. It's smiling, showing all of it's glorious maw at me.

The styling of the F-Type does not move me in the same way the DB9 does, but my God it looks handsome. From the side there is barely any hint of the car “bowing down”, that is, those bloody side swoops that shows the back of the car as higher than the front of the car. This feline is properly manly.

But not as manly as this though…

Sabertooth tiger was my first thought.

Sabertooth tiger was my first thought. This thing is imposes its VASTNESS so much more than those urban SUVs on the other side.

I’m telling you, if you thought the BMW 7-series was huge, wait ’till you get in front of this behemoth. Simply standing in front of it, it’s COLOSSAL presence just imposes itself on you. That massive nose grill along with those angry eyes… I was almost overwhelmed really.

Strangely enough, despite of how big it looks, sitting down at either the driver or passenger seats, there is not much headroom.

Interior is not bad. Quite practical of course, but somehow you just know they could up the ante on the styling a bit.

Now, I consider myself a Bruneian man of average height, 166 centimetres isn’t particularly short at all, so taller people might want to give this fact a consideration. Still, I like the fact that it doesn’t feel like I’m in a cabin that’s far too big for me, so this is actually a plus. It’s snug, I like it.

Now, the folks from Indera Motors were kind enough to start up the engine of the F-Type for me, and I was given the chance to savour the manly rawness of that supercharged V8. Unfortunately, I can’t upload it here. Maybe if I could upload on a Youtube channel or something… yeah… So anyway, here’s me thanking the folks from Indera Motors. Nice chaps. Those Jags made my Sunday a whole lot better.

Here ya go:
