How did you find out about starfarer?
« on: May 29, 2012, 05:32:00 PM »

Based upon the fact that Gamersdissent (spelled right?) started a new series again, and some people are finding out about it this way, I decided to ask how people found out about this game. Let me start. I found out about it when I was browsing another forum, I saw the name mentioned, and wondered what it was, thus through google I found it.

This again, haha?

Guess it's good to gauge where the new folk are coming from?

I found it on a forum post somewhere I think. But seeing gameplay footage (also TB) is what sold me.

I had a dream about a kitten jumping on a big calculator, he sang and promised me the future of videogaming. I woke up and typed in numbers that the kitten had stepped on into the Url box, it was the IP address for fractalsoftworks.com.

A miracle.

not really it was Bay12games forum

SonicRaptor follows TotalBiscuit, and, when he saw the video, bought me the game as a gift. He's a great friend. :D
