The Making Of Departure Freeflight Productions Project
Departure began when my friend Jyah, who is also the co-creator of this project and I had a conversation at what could become of our world as we pushed to evolve towards a T1 civilization. We began speaking of mining the asteroid belts. We then turned our attention to those that went further still to harvest materials from a richly minerialized Jupiter trojan. Then we stopped the quest for riches with the deeper explorers that had better tech mining the Kuiper belt.
This story began to further evolve into this beautiful, rich environment in which we have become a true interplanetary species. But there is a twist to it all that is so familiar in our minds that we honestly believe this may be one of the coolest stories we ever thought up.
