Sounds like they drew their UI inspiration from Dwarf Fortress.

Welcome back Shamus. I've enjoyed reading your columns at Twentysided.com and am looking forward to seeing them here again.

Welcome back, Shamus. It's a pleasure to see your return. I've enjoyed your long-form articles (not to mention satirical comics like DM of the Rings) for some time.

Ooh, let's not forget that you can lose millions of units in a single mis-click, which neatly puts paid to the "hold a key to make sure you mean it" malarkey.

I was delighted to see your byline again, Shamus. :)

Having you back is probably one of the best things about the rebirth of Escapist :D.

Also, I'm surprised that more people didn't talk about NMS's interface, cause holy shit does it sound bad.

The interface for No Man's Sky is a crazy funhouse of random behavior that will make you question your sanity.
This is my favorite sentence I've read all week.

Also I've missed editing lines from columns into their creators' OPs. It feels like the good old days again.
