I don't think Starseed Pilgrim would be as successful today as it was when it came out, and that's not because of technical limitations. It did something that was, you know, new! It responded to the trends of the day, capturing the minds of gamers (that is, anyone who cares about games - maybe I should say "indie gamers") by indicating something close to what was already in the water.

I'm still not entirely sure how to put this into clearer language, it's frustrating, but I'll revisit this.
