Re: "Europa" a [contemporary space adventure] in dev.
Yeah, I mean, Europa is admittedly pretty small, but there's room for more than just Arthur Clarke on it.
Quite. Europa's the one place most speculated or suggested to possibly have some sort of life (like, bacterial, but life hooray!) and as such has a kind of magnetic appeal for sci-fi. To the extent there's still somewhere in the solar system we can project our fatanasies, the rest of it having been scoured and found quite dead, Europa is as somewhat plausible as it gets.
...idiosyncratic is right.
