The End of the Holocene
All the grasshoppers know the long winter is coming now. The R-Types must give way to the K's when the stars once again rule against them.
The grasshoppers have their wild days in the sun, breeding and leaping about and clicking away ... but then comes the season they must pass away and the hardy ant returns, the mainstay of the natural order. No grasshopper can delay the hour of his death through consensus or plebiscite - this is the way the real world works. It seems cruel until you consider it is the only thing that keeps the grasshopper from becoming the locust.
