Shortest Trip to Earth Lands

Today marks the official launch of Shortest Trip to Earth, and the Roguelike sci-fi game is now out of Early Access on GOG.com and Steam. Here's last week's Launch Trailer, and this post has details on the release as well as a version 1.0 change log. Here's word on the game, as well as a warning on an upcoming price increase you can avoid if you act quickly:
Get ready to grab the controls and prepare for take off, as Shortest Trip to Earth has exited Early Access and made a full release on Steam! In the final version of the game, you can check out never-before-seen sectors, fly new ships and fight challenging enemies, while exploring the vast universe in the game on your way back to Earth.

We are humbled to release our game after it has been critically acclaimed by press and rated as excellent by the community. After more than 5 years of continuous development, Shortest Trip to Earth is ready to meet the best space survivors of our little Earth - and of course kill them, being a rogue-like.

We have previously announced that Shortest Trip to Earth is going to receive a price increase at the end of its Early Access period. However, the European Commission has created a law that forbids (for a period of 30 days) raising a price and then offering a discount at the same time. Bit of a catch 22 isnít it! However: we find it more important to offer a discount at launch to the community, so for the week of launch we will be offering a 15% discount while keeping the price as is.

You might want to consider jumping on the bandwagon quickly though, since after the week of launch we do intend to raise the price (to $ 24,99), again, as was always the plan.
