''Startopia'' is a 2001 simulation game where the player is tasked with the administration of a [[RingWorldPlanet toroidal space station]] in the aftermath of a galactic war. It met mediocre reviews, but became a cult classic. The developer, Mucky Foot, was founded by ex-Creator/{{Bullfrog}} employees.

Added DiffLines:

* HolodeckMalfunction: Less so by malfunction and more by SeriousBusiness. [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Kasvagorians]] take the Holodrome simulations too seriously sometimes and wind up taking a massive hit to their health, sometimes in the rare case in which they can ''die'' inside of the 'drome.
