I loved spacebase DF9 and when doublefine made the game worse with each patch until they just gave up and dropped it I was pretty gutted. I now avoid any doublefine games. It's great to see someone doing a similar title, someone not tied to the same greed line that doublefine are.
This game has some great potential and if done right will get a great following quite quickly. However as it stands its pretty buggy. You might need to work on a few things before the demo chases away potential backers. I tried to play twice, firstly no 1080p resolution option is odd but ticking fullscreen works. I would look at adding a 1080p and borderless window. So first playthrough was fine until my meeple started going back and forth between 2 grid spaces continuously. I restarted and after a while I had all 3 meeple standing by the fishtank punching the air and doing nothing.
One of the reasons spacebase died was due to bad pathing that couldn't be fixed. You might want to look into that pretty early.
