Random Thought: Happily Drowning in Space Games

Raining Games
It’s Raining Games! Hallelujah!

So in the past week or so, SEVERAL spacey games have come out, including:

  • Gemini Wars
  • Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion
  • Drox Operative (Beta)
  • FTL: Faster than Light (Beta)

And let me tell you, I am SCRAMBLING to cover all of them with the amount of time I have available to me. It’s amazing, here when I began this blog, I thought I’d be covering mostly classic games with the occasional new release, but for these several months it’s been the exact opposite. I thought I’d have time to do one review at a time, now I’m doing four concurrently.

Let me tell ya, I am not complaining at ALLLLLLL, in fact, I am LOVING this, but daaaaang I didn’t expect it at all. It’s a VERY good time to be a space game fan, almost as good as the 90s, it feels like in many respects. How are you guys dealing with the deluge?

      1. oh ok. i remember they had a demo for OnLive a while back when they did that indie game demo promo. do you have to preorder to get the beta?

    1. I think he’s talking about the beta. Drox Operative is also beta but FTL beta is for kickstarter’s funders who donated more than 25$.

      1. Welcome to the blog, tiagocc0! And yes, thank you for helping me clear that up. I’ve marked the betas in the article to hopefully avoid further confusion. :)

    1. I’ve only had chance to play one session — in which my crew died from lack of oxygen…lol? ;) — and I agree, it really is something special.

Chime In!
