Nature is like a nervous dog or a piece of gravel on a carpet in that it abhors a vacuum. The departure of anything significant will result in something else rushing in to fill the gap. Look at Prohibition, they tried to take away alcohol and the space all got filled up with crime instead. They ban abortion and the space gets filled up with preventable death and wire coathangers. And ever since Nintendo tacitly expressed they have about as much interest in maintaining the Paper Mario series in the manner in which it was at its peak as they do in industrial-level alpaca husbandry, the indie sphere has moved in to take its place. As was the case with Bug Fables from a while back and today’s subject, Rainbow Billy and the Curse of the Leviathan, from not quite so long a while back. It came out last year, and evidently someone felt it had been criminally slept on with enough passion to get them to gift me it on Steam last week. And frankly that’s as good an incentive as I need at this point. I don’t think there’s ever been a worse post-E3 Summer games drought than this one. I’ve already used up this year’s two ideas for space-filling ZPs. I’m this close to reviewing Microsoft Word and how efficiently it enabled me to type up my suicide note.
