That was not the Sword of the Stars I was expecting when I clicked...
It's a roguelike they made. I picked it up from Gamersgate depite my not being a huge fan of roguelikes and it is pretty decent if you're into that sort of thing
Same. I grabbed it though, its at a good impulse price
And I rather like those kinda roguelikes. Plus, its sci-fi. How can one go wrong?
I played the tutorial, and it definitely looks fun.

As for GMG: I can't buy anything from them because my bank and credit cards all register them as an online gambling site. Apparently those are illegal (wtf?), so they won't authorize a purchase under any circumstance.
Not sure what country you are from, but if its in the US, that kinda thing has been in the news a lot when it happened and occasionally since.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_gambling
Basically a few years back, some random court decision decided it violated something. After that congress passed a law about it (more than likely because of casino's lobbying). Not really sure why it should be against the law for people to waste their money if they want to. Throw some taxes on it.
