Hey sprog, I was on vacation for an entire month and I really was not doing much work wise.

I am back at it. A demo is due to be released only shortly on Desura, it is a stripped down demo, similar to starsector in that it is mainly combat only. All the rpg elements, story, dynamic events etc are disabled. Just combat.

Still needs funds to complete the art for the story. Can't talk to aliens with no alien pictures lol...well you could but it might be not be very immerse. I've found the better games or the ones you actually liked or wanted to play in terms of space games were able to immerse you in them well.

I hope for a lot of constructive feedback on the demo to make it better!

What did you mean by your last post? Reviewed in current form is a bit vague, would it be taking into consideration the mitigating factors? Or do like some alpha reviewers and wonder 'why x doesn't work' or 'why you can't do this'.

We can always do the review together? That's always fun as dev comments are usually helpful and gain a lot of attention

Lol, that sounds like it would be fun!

How does it work? I watch some kind of live connection while you play and we record our conversation?

Ok I sent you a PM, I am laughing already at the hilarious prospect that could ensue seeing someone try it for the first time with no previous experience while I watch and try to help!
