Space Colony Demo

The Gigex streaming download service is now offering a 122 MB demo version of Space Colony, allowing the chance to sample Firefly Studios' upcoming management game that puts the player in control of a colony full of space cadets. Word is: "The Space Colony demo allows players to play through three missions and meet six of the 20 wacky space cadets. The Space Colony demo will also be available on CD at GameStop and Electronic Boutique stores nationwide starting in September."

Avoid games whose description contains the word "wacky".

Selective breeding for populating the space colony and you could double your audience!

Erm... not sure what happened with the subject heading. That sure wasn't the one that was in the subject field when I was posting... :-/

Tried it, enjoyed it immensely, in spite of the headaches caused by some of the characters fighting incessantly. Sure, it's hilarious... but sooner or later they're almost dead... and where does that leave me? Honestly, while the basics are nothing we haven't seen before, it's approached in a manner that is fairly creative and enjoyable.

Shortened version: a little weird; but it's good.

4. Demo Review Sep 4, 2003, 14:53 D4rkKnight
 
I played it for about 10 minutes, after that I couldnt stand it anymore so I removed all living structures (shower, food, beds) and watched the people start losing it, they eventually ended up in a never-ending fist fight between the 4 of them, I quit right about then.

I score this game 1/5, it gets a 1 because its fun to hear some of the insults the citizens mutter, espiecially the Eminem ripoff guy.

Anyone tried this yet? On first glance, it looks an awful lot like Startopia... (not a bad thing, I guess.)

In case blue's email STILL does not work (or auto ignores me), there is always the Worthplaying mirror ...

No annoying download tool needed, of course
