Just to give you a heads-up regarding Steam & indie space games, they did end up allowing SPAZ on Steam, reversing the decision mentioned earlier. So that is still a viable option to look into down the line when you get there.

[I noticed this when I saw a SPAZ advertisement on Steam]  :D

They even uploaded all of the keys on to Steam for those who purchased during Beta!

I just pre-ordered the game yesterday. Want to know what made me get it now? The mod support. Any developer that advertises mod support as a feature gets my money (as long as the game is worth modding, that is).

Thanks for your support, guys! Hope you enjoy the game.

That is indeed good news. It seems like Steam usually accepts games once they actually do well outside of it :)

Preordered last night and thoroughly enjoying what I've played so far. Thanks for your hard work! I can't wait to see how Starfarer develops.

Was just finally able to put my order in, had to have the GF do it as a gift though, any idea how long on average it is taking now to get the key, as the purchase site said up to 5 hours!?

*update 2 hours and counting...

You got it by now, right? Up to 5 hours sounds about right - I'd say its instant about half the time, and anywhere up to 5 hrs for the other half.

My apologies for the delay.

I ordered this some two hours ago.

Dgbaumgart posted a link in Dungeons of Dredmor forum and I just couldn't help it.

I'm not sure if I will be able to play it in this camputer, but if I can't, I'll do so in my soon-to-be-repaired desktop.

@Psiweapon : If you can play Dredmor, I'm pretty sure you can play Starfarer. My horrible old mac laptop runs both - not very well, but they run.

And glad SF was of interest; I'm always happy to shill for Alex!

Found out about this one tonight and pre-ordered after doing a tad bit of research.  I love the fact that people are making these types of games again.  It's so refreshing.  I look forward to playing and spreading the word.  Best wishes!
