The most interesting thing about this game to me was my bewilderment. As I played the demo, I kept thinking to myself, "is this all there is to it?". But I kept on playing and playing all the while thinking that. What kept me going? I dunno, but something did, so you must be onto something. Finally, I just had to force myself to quit.

One thing that would really enhance this game is historical market information. Charts and graphs are always good. Even if players don't use it to plan investment strategies, it is fun to see how the history of your game has gone. I added this feature to Space HoRSE and got good feedback from it.

Also, when leaving a planet and seeing the "map" of planets, it would be nice to have a little spaceship icon or something to indicate your current planet.

This is..a compliment? right?

I have to say, Space Horse is excellent, updating a true (almost forgotten in many circles) strat classic I played as a kid.

Both very good suggestions! Always appreciate hearing from fellow developers. Thanks!

Yes, 'twas a compliment... although admittedly vague. Rockstars a vague, and rockstars are cool, right? Therefore, vague=cool? Ok, maybe rockstars aren't really that cool.

No, but they are 'always' vague!

Derek, OH! I really like Gillissie's ideas about the charts and an icon (of some kind) to mark your current planet!

This the post I meant to make until I read, Gillissie's post. Got side tracked with a bit of smart arse!

Congratulations! It is nice to hear good games still get awards. I hope you win several more.
Have a good day.

Checked out the demo... bought the game. I travel alot and I am always on the lookout for addictive independent games to play on my laptop. Shrapnel, Matrix, Battlefront, and HPS are the suppliers of my newest drug... indie strat games.

I agree about the charts and graphs though. RL stocks live or die by the graph.

Great game.
