was the game called “Bait and Switch”?

Sounds like Spore. The microscope stage was fun, but it was a long slog for not much in the end. Maybe Carl could have made it fascinating, but I have to wonder what the graphics would have looked like in 1983! Yowza!

Did you know Carl Sagan designed a game?
Blah Blah Blah ( Nothing to do with Carl Sagan) Blah

And then as an after-thought, a small paragraph about Carl Sagan.

/Useless click-bait

“Elite: Dangerous” hits most of the notes Sagan was talking about. It contains the entire galaxy, and while don’t have to learn astronomy while playing it, you don’t need to try; it kind of sucks you in and teaches you osmotically if you’re the explorer type… or prospector type… or discoverer… or… :smile:

Totally agreed on the Contact film - some excellent scifi.

Glad my essay’s click bait worthy at least! Also, being featured on anything with Carl Sagan’s an honor! :pizza:

Let’s see if i understand.
You write an essay with the title “Did you know Carl Sagan designed a game?” and yet there’s nothing about him till the very end? and in what seems as an after-thought just so you can use his name in the title?

Wow
Need a walker? cos that’s lame.

The body of the essay should have something to do with the title of the essay.
Anyone with a bit of common sense knows that and this “essay” would be given a failing grade even by high school standards.
