From the sound of things, it takes the best parts of S.P.A.Z. and the worst parts of FTL and throws them in a blender. I' a huge fan of S.P.A.Z., but only moderately so of FTL, so I am very interested in seeing, but not playing this game.

I'm full of shit

I thought this game felt depressingly empty, and I personally found the game to be so large, and mostly empty, to the point where, just moving around a mostly empty landscape, got so boring for me - At least in SPAZ, when you move to a new region, you just teleport around, but I think that in this one, you literally have to just, wait around. There's too much waiting for me.


Honestly this game makes me wish SPAZ 2 was just 2D SPAZ, but better and with more stuff to do, all without that grindy mineral system. I kinda liked SPAZ but there are also parts about it which I'm not too crazy of. I love games where you just get to, blow shit up to get new technology, so that kept me playing, but man dying in SPAZ is way too harsh, it grinds the game to a stall everytime, that's what makes the game hard for me to recommend.


Anyway, back to this game.  I wasn't really enjoying the combat, and I don't know, I only had this giant feeling of loneliness while playing, everything just feels very sterile, there's no humour to it or anything, this whole game was just empty as hell.


I'm just flying pictures of spaceships, on boring ass backgrounds, doing a whole lot of nothing mostly, at least in SPAZ you had some kind of goal to go for, but man I have no memory of what the hell you were supposed to do in this game, it was so boring for me.


Just, boring, lonely, depressing looking, almost sterile. I don't know, it feels like this game only has the most basic setup, in order to be defined as a game, but man it doesn't feel like an actual videogame. This is hard for me to put into words now, I would have to replay through this again, and I just don't feel like it. I just didn't have a good time with this game, and I wanted to like it.


Honestly, you are better off playing SPAZ, with Cheat Engine. Just give yourself a boatload of minerals and be done with it. Also give yourself skillpoints if you are struggling.


I don't know what happened to the difficulty, SPAZ originally wasn't this hard, I honestly should get my hand on an older version, I don't like the new version at all. Like, the boss was ultra lame, and died in one second, but beyond that, I don't know, maybe I'm just remembering the game wrong. I hope to get my hands on an older version of SPAZ, see if it was more fun.


Actually I thought about it, no the older versions were not more fun. Just cheat if you hate the grind, don't waste your time

Edit: Oh yeah, I hated the stealth missions in SPAZ, were those skippable? Overall, I remember finding SPAZ really grindy, but it had some fun ideas. But I wasn't enjoying my time with it sadly. If you are a dirty cheater, like i am, you should totally cheat. You only need to do a search for strings, for the stuff you want to bump up.



to find your rez more easily, you can also do a string search, in the ship build menu


also set the difficulty to casual, tech level to the max, and the galaxy size to 150, and bounty hunters to 0


edit 2: oh man, i'm actually enjoying the game now, I SHOULD'VE CHEATED SOONER



i wish all anti viruses worked like this
