Bought it recently.
This game's legit; you actually feel like you're alone in space, controlling these drones from your ship. You become attached to them because they're basically your lifeline and if they go down, you're fucked. When shit goes South (as it inevitably does in roguelikes), scrambling to save them is exhilarating and intense. The keyboard-only interface just adds to this. Highly recommended.
fun trailer, but "Duskers"?
I think they were going for a mid 90s scifi-horror thing, and if so they nailed it (the font, too).
Well there goes the last of the cash I made on eBay last week.
I had it earmarked for an enormous pizza Monday night, too.
This came out 2 months ago!
It was really tense at first, but it quickly got too frustrating to enjoy. The risk/reward factor just isn't there, and success is just random luck.
I think the procedural generation really hurts it. The ships don't feel like ships and that really hurts the immersion it so heavily leans on. Would have been better off with well designed premade levels.
