Based on a fanfiction of the very same game
Luke Rounda from Fanfiction.net once wrote a space opera extravaganza in the form of Asteroids: Festival Among the Rocks. It's actually based on the 1998 Activision update (does anyone have a copy?), which actually has minimalist plot- you work as an asteroid smasher for the Galactic Asteroid Mining and Drilling Corporation (naturally), and eventually there is an alien invasion or something at the very last zone.
However, Mr. Rounda took the idea and built an entire universe out of it. I helped by expanding it with my own ideas, which, in retrospect, were slightly influenced by EV, though I've never played it until recently when I downloaded Nova. I added on with a mix of stories here, called The Frontier.
Anyways, I'm interested in continuing my story expansion, and possibly creating a future plug out of it. Is anyone interested? At the very least, please check out the story above. It's very excellent.
