I've probably played the demo four of five times and it is still a blast. Every time I send my ship to a new system I don't know whats going to happen. My most memorable encounter so far had me entering a system where a pirate assault ship was attacking a civilian transport. My options were to move in and help the civilians, take a bribe from the pirates to stay out the way or merely jump to another system and ignore them altogether. Trying to be a hero I intervened and I didn't realize just how strong a pirate assault ship was. It tore through my shields, set my engines on fire, horribly injured my crew and by the time the battle was over I had lost one crew member and my hull was at 10% strength. What I got for all that was nothing, because the pirate ship jumped away when I started to seriously injure it. Worth it? Not at all, but it taught me to be a little more careful about every situation I come across. Even though the game is only partially complete right now, in the demo, there is still a lot to discover and be destroyed by. I highly encourage any fans of space adventure games or rogue-like's to try this demo as soon as they can. To download the demo take a look at the links below, there is quite a bit of information about it on all of the links. Thanks for reading and I cannot wait to try this game when it comes out this summer.
