Liking this game's visual aesthetic and writing a fair bit! Being an absolute loser for reading manuals, I found this game an interesting play. Trying to decipher terrible manuals and succeeding brings me far more joy than it should, and this game contributed nicely to that sweet feeling. The graphics overall are very nice, and I liked the background music and sound design as well. Got crushed to death pressing random buttons the first time and survived for so long following the manual the second time that I just had to close out the game. :P Nice work!

it opened once then crashed, now gives the error msg

> "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I opened properties and gave the file permissions, and removed the block which had affected the previous time I saw this error on another game and it did not fix it here.

very interesting idea and concept, the text inside the manual were quite funny, quite enjoyed playing, good job!

I like the idea but the manual is "too long to read" and the lack of quick navigation makes it a bit annoying to try to find things and what steps to take.

Good job! The gameplay was really enticing and the art made me feel like I was in space.

It's like a Papers Please roguelike. Really well done and the small details in the environment help sell the feeling of being in space :)

This game has a really nice art style, lots of polish and an amazing atmosphere. I also really loved how you named all the different inputs and buttons . While I  had fun, I became overwhelmed quite quickly. I would have preferred if the difficulty curve was less steep and instructions would be added gradually, while flying this airship. Being greeted with 14 pages of how to play the game can be quite overwhelming after all. Overall a really  experience!

OMG!

I didn't read the manual and it didn't make the game worse : D
That was such a rollercoaster or emotions.

Love it!

A good game if you think Space Team is too easy and you don't have any friends.
