Stellaris Recommends: Sci-fi book recommendations from the team behind Paradox's grand-strategy-in-space game, including notes on prominent tropes and what each book does well.
Damn, that's actually a really great idea. I wish more video game development teams released book recommendation lists like this! I would have loved to know what books/series inspired the developers of my other favorite games at the time they created them.
Fuzzy Nation was the only one I knew from this list too. I did see that
Outlandis written by Dennis Taylor though, who also write the quite excellent
Bobiverseseries, so I immediately added it to my reading list
