Great Start

The game is in early access. With that said, I think most people can see what this will be about. Its supposed to be a minecraft in space with nice graphics. To some that will sound awesome, and it does to me too. However, you need to know what you are getting yourself into. You build ships, stations and eventually you will be able to mine space rocks and fight enemies among other lesser features. That really is about it. If you find that appealing you will enjoy this. If you enjoy story, points of any kind and an overall feeling of progression you will find this disappointing. Its a pure sandbox in the purest sense of the word. I suppose the question you should ask yourself now is if its worth the $15. Frankly, it is, for the simple fact you can build ships and stations. It will keep you occupied for hours on end with that alone. When more features come online, the $15 will probably be considered a bargain. The only gripe I have with it is that the UI is sort of messed up and there isn't any customization when it comes to that at all except for key bindings. You either have the whole thing turned on with annoying text that blocks your view, or nothing at all, which is not helpful if you are commainding a ship and wan't to know numbers such as speed and power consumption. Hopefully that will be fixed
