Vaster Than Empires (PT+009) thrives on extremes, seeking/wishing/pretending to cajole music from barren silences and synaptic turmoil. The result is a journey through exotic landscapes, tiny and huge, near and far, above and below, led by players who are comfortable with the discomfort of exploring the nether regions of the space-time continuum.
