Hmm, I think I'll rather wait for Starfarer.
That looks pretty cool! And its one of those indie things with buy now at a discount and play beta and get the full thing when it comes out. I'm going to look into it and see if I want to buy it.
Thanks for the heads up on it. Any other interesting games? I'm waiting for project zomboid to be purchasable through paypal (they are putting it on desura and steam shortly), thats another one I have my eye on.
When I was still on the fence whether I should pre-order SPAZ (by that time I've already pre-ordered Starfarer) I went into their IRC channel and asked around. One of them opened a query and told me that I'd better save my money for Starfarer because, while SPAZ is certainly a good game, it wouldn't have such a lasting appeal as Starfarer.
The problem with Starfarer is that it's still in a very early phase and the only thing that's really working so far is the combat (afair) but it promises so much more than SPAZ.
I mean a "open-world single-player space-combat, roleplaying, exploration and economic game" - that almost sounds too good to be true because it's such an ambitious project. Yet I'll stay confident and not only because they also have a Linux client which is also a big plus.
Project Zomboid is definitely worth looking at, too. Since I couldn't buy it through PayPal I went to the forums because a guy offered to buy that game for anyone who wished and have the money transferred to his PayPal account and it worked out fine.
And although I'm really tired of zombie games this one looks really promising because of the great gameplay. Finally a real survival game.
Really looking forward to these games. I'm afraid I don't have any more games on my radar, though.
Now we donce.
