It took me a little while to get used to the controls but, after I had It felt really good, especially after my engines were upgraded. I also thought the music fit really well for the game. to me, it seems like a massive game for being done in such a short amount of time, really well done. I kept thinking how comparable it was to Eve online while i was playing, which is really cool.

This game very desperately needs a proper in-game tutorial instead of the wall of text instructions. Although they're not that long, they contain a ton of details to process even before seeing what gameplay looks like. And the ship image you use on your menu is extremely misleading. I thought this was going to be a 2D game, so I interpreted the controls in that context. It turns out it's an actual 3D space flight game, and I had no idea what I was doing. As soon as I started moving, I floated way back behind where I was looking and just kept going, getting lost in space. It's like trying to play Kerbal Space Program without the tutorials. People need to learn 1 by 1 how each of the controls works to even be able to pull of basic flight maneuvers. It's a shame, because the screenshots make me really want to explore more, but I'm trying to review all the games, and I just can't dedicate so much time to even learning this game. I'm sure it's super fun once you know how to fly.

Yeah planned to put a proper tutorial in but ran out of time unfortunately.
