    A naive spirit of creation on an alien world's daily routine is interrupted by the arrival of an intergalactic visitor. The Man quickly lets his drones loose on the world and begins stripping it down and mining its precious minerals. This triggers a transformation in the Spirit into a force of primal chaos and destruction.

    Well it's don't barge into someone's home and start rearranging their furniture and stealing their stuff without expecting them to get pissed off. But fancy space plant magic is not how you got to that planet in the first place, that was science. Glowing cube fueled science.

    So the moral of the story is that a little bit of respect goes a long way to getting you what you want. Whether that's mysterious glowing cubes or just not getting blown up.

    Still dont understand why stepping on a plant always gives us the "villain" vibe, like you step onto a new planet with lots of plants and the moment you step on a strand of leaf you get executed and sacrificed to their pet monster they keep in a cage

    It's pretty cool but I feel like the pacing is a bit off. I feel like if you slowed things down and went a little less fast, things would be much better. Right now it feels like you are just trying to feed me too many things at once. If it was slower, I would be able to feel sadness for the sport and have a reason to care about the cause. Not that what is happening isn't bad but I just don't have enough to time to feel for this character.

    So the space man asked permission before taking enough resources to get his ship back to max. Then when the nature spirit got upset, did he ask the space man to stop? Nope. He just raged out and started attacking the robots, so the space man tried to grab what he needed as quickly as he could to leave. And the nature spirit raged harder and stranded him there. Then the space man was willing to try to STILL be friendly and the nature spirit STILL got mad at him because of the stupid robot. Talk about casting the villain as the hero.

      @Ice Wing Possibly, but it still doesn't justify her(?) actions.
