I'm playing video games for over 25 years. a time where we couldnt even save our progress. Nowadays most have deteriorated to submitting pop-ups. this game offers a challenge. many attempts are made in this genre, only few add to it. Also production value seems very high. So my rating goes not only towards the game, but to the devs aswell.

- i love the genre and have high expectations, those are met
- features are not only included but add to the gameplay
- there is a demo !
- the high production value is felt throughout the whole game not only few features
- i havent had such a good experience with pre- releases in i think ever

Finished the demo several times. Looks super promising, the module system gives a lot of possibilities with swapping modules before battle, selling them to gain stuff, pre-loading weapons etc. Love the looks of organic based alien ships and rat ships. Definitely keep it up!

The writing makes me want to join in with the crew on some.. activities.

So much good of what I remember from playing adventure games set in space from my past. Could have deeper and longer dialogue options with the aliens you meet, but the atmosphere and feeling of progression hits a really good balance. Graphics are blurry at times, but from what I can gather, I never played these games for the visuals. It's mostly how the story unravels, and this is well done here!

FTL-like game with more detail on ships, modules, and crew. Much better back story so far, as well.

Also, ended up with a cat wandering around on board named "Little Bastard" out of nowhere.

10/10 CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE.

An engaging, fun and tense demo for what looks like a fun full game. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this title. My first impressions can be found in this video: Youtube.com

It's challenging, keeps you thinking, more enjoyable than any other new game I've played for a while.

The are many ways to alter the difficulty like choosing perks, playing with a different sized ship, plus the levels are randomly generated each time, so you can play this loads of times and have a very different experience each time around. I can see this not getting boring for many-many hours.

Not to mention the great storyline. There's a lot to discover.
