You can get the game for yourself completely free at the developer's website for Mac and PC, though you may have some trouble getting it to run on Windows 7 or later. I know I did.
Anyway I think I'll leave everything just as it is; no sense meddling with the fundamental rules of universe before I've even had a chance to observe it. I don't even know what kind of game this is yet.
Anyway, the tutorial helpfully points out that I should click on another star then click 'engage' to FTL over to it.
Each star gets one planet and each planet may have something worth (automatically) grabbing on it, in this case I found a rogue Zorg helmsman who can apparently "fold space around a ship group and move up to two parsecs to another star." Sounds handy.
Though it looks like this particular world is going to blow up in a month, so I won't bother.
Sadly with only half my firepower left I was effortlessly taken apart by a single ship before I could run away. Bugger.
There's no saves or continues or checkpoints, you get your one life and that's it. Usually I'd whine about that, but for this game it's actually perfect. The game's not about making progress and seeing what's next, it's about getting the highest score with the (metaphorical) cards you're dealt. And seeing as I've only been playing the game for ten minutes so far, I think I'll give it another shot.
TWO MINUTES LATER.
After two goes I think I've seen enough of the game to have an opinion on it, but I'll give it one more shot anyway. It doesn't seem right to quit after only 12 minutes.
Oh right, I should probably point out that this UI is the opposite of frustrating. Everything is slick and does exactly what you want it to do. A little more info on the weapon damage would be nice, but at least they go into detail about the FTL drive speeds, which is the important thing.
EIGHT MINUTES LATER.
Okay now I'm back to only having the one ship, and I've explored all but one planet. This seems to be a perfect time to head back to base to retire with my obscene wealth. Though on the other hand, there's just one planet left...
SOON, AT THE LAST PLANET LEFT.
I've got no complaints about Strange Adventures in Infinite Space. It's infinite tiny adventures in strange random galaxies that are over with before even I can get bored. Click the planets and take your chances. Sure it'd probably get old after a few more playthroughs and there's not much gameplay to it, but who cares, it's free.
If you've got any thoughts about SAIS, SAIG or anything else halfway relevant, feel free to leave a comment. Maybe you even tried the game yourself after reading this, and just want to rant at me for wasting your time, it's all good.
