Two new games coming from Arcen! Exodus of the Machine!And Skyward Collapse!
Every time someone talks about Murdoch I feel obliged to quote Dark City.
It's the name that the first generated planet gets, every single time, unless you change the alternate planet names file.

We get to come up with ridiculous things to call all the rest of them over Skype based on whatever comes to mind when we see them (it's kind of like word association, except the in-game names aren't words, and it adds way more of an extra layer of fun than using an alt planet list would)...and Murdoch. Heh.
I've a source code to the Elite (very old space sim) planet names somewere, I could put a list of them somewhere if people are interested... (The names are generated with a seed number)
And Dark City was always in my head when I saw Murdoch. Lol
