WI: Notch decides to release minecraft on steam in 2009/2010?
Disney fans don't want to 'ruin their childhood' of course i sinned the same with videogames but yeah.Have you noticed that almost every Disney animation TL is the same?
Most of them involve Walt quitting cigarettes early on and living longer, along with Don Bluth staying at Disney.
Thankfully, my TL, "An Alternate History of Animated Films", doesn't go that direction.
I just thought about how Pop Culture TL's always have Dr Who, Star Trek and Star Wars existing in some form and I imagined a TL where they don't.Given their success with audiences at the time, I fear their absence could have rendered the series a mere footnote in British TV history.
Well, I do have this tongue-in-cheek Trek-like science fiction franchise in one of my timelines. Amusingly enough, though it is the closest thing to Trek in an otherwise rather different 20th century, it's made in a group of non-anglophone countries.I just thought about how Pop Culture TL's always have Dr Who, Star Trek and Star Wars existing in some form and I imagined a TL where they don't.
Perhaps, but if Newman's "no bug-eyed monsters" edict successfully gets rid of the Daleks, there's no precedent for Cybermen. Just the Doctor and companions wandering around extremely sixties visions of the future and questionably authentic historic periods, reacting to stuff. And I say that as someone who likes the monster-free Hartnell stories.Cybermen were more popular among adults that dalek IIRC.
