Trippy Metagame Theory

Recommended Posts

A few nights ago I got it into my head that oxygen not included is not about a colony at all.  It's about the emergence of a new life form.  It takes place just after a "parent" creature has deposited her Genetic/AI/Robotic material inside an asteroid.  The Printer/Portal is the brain/seed.  The player is the intelligence that resides inside the brain.  It drives the development of the new Machine/Biological hybrid organism.  The dupes are like super intelligent cells/nanobots that construct and maintain the new "body" which is your base.  Your base is the fetus growing inside the egg/asteroid eventually to burst through and become a fully fledged life form.
