"Earthmen, it is clear, live behind walls, which they find difficult to escape from, but it was just as clear to me that Aurorans live behind walls, too."
"Aurorans live behind walls made of robots, who shield them from all the vicissitudes of life and who...would build up shielded societies to wall up Aurorans settling new worlds. Aurorans also live behind walls made up of their own extended lives, which forces them to overvalue individuality and keeps them from pooling their scientific resources..."
"The Earthman's walls are crude and literal, so that the existence is obtrusive and obvious--and there are always some who long to escape. The Auroran's walls are immaterial and aren't even seen as walls, so that none can even conceive of escaping. It seemed to me, then, that it must be Earthmen and not Aurorans--or any other Spacers--who must settle the Galaxy and establish what will someday become a Galactic Empire."
--Robot Giskard Reventlov: The Robots of Dawn, Isaac Asimov
I have resumed research for the development of a turn-based strategy game set in the Asimov universe. As I get more information put together, I will post it here. If you have any suggestions that you would like to pass along, then please email me.
1,500 years in the future begins an epic adventure for mankind that spans nearly 30,000 years. This is Asimov's legacy. Far broader than Nostradamus. An optimistic look at the future history of man dominating an entire galaxy. Packed with heroes that use the best qualities of individuals to defeat the worst qualities of societies corrupted by twisted ideals. Where even mutants and evolutionary trends fail. A literary universe with mindstretching technologies and unique thoughts that have already shaped science-fiction for generations. From robotics to neuronic whips to psychic probes, Asimov has blended his own personal knowledge and theories of science and astronomy, which are extensive, into a work that has inspired and terrified readers for decades.
