Show publishers you want fair global distribution!
Dear publishers on Steam,
We don't get access to your games, get put up with higher prices and are unable to buy localized games.
We believe this practice doesn't just hurt your image, but also the thing that matters to you the most... sales.
With this group we would like to show the amount of people who would have bought your games if you made them available in all countries, used the same pricing worldwide and offered the localized versions available in retail.

This is very much a game you buy solely for the novelty of it. Yearning for the specific nostalgic frustration of Oregon Trail with a new post-apocalyptic zombie-plague paint job? Then throw $5 at this and laugh as the survivors you name after friends/famous people succumb to dysentry and squash precious food into uselessness with their bums.
However, don't expect this game to be fun for more than an hour, or two to three at the most. This is especially if you've never played Oregon Trail before, are frustrated by randomized events you have no power over, and an awkward aiming system (you have to drag a quick line from target to your gun with your cursor, as well as allow for bullet travel time).
This a nice game of constructing your own hob-powered destruction engine, but bear in mind that it is essentially a physics trial&error puzzle game. There are 37 levels in total, and the ships you build are only to specifically fight the enemy(s) of each particular level. Nothing is carried over besides unlockable (over various) parts for your ship.
For me, it was interesting at first, but grew tedious as I had to reinvent my ship for every stage, and was left in severe want of a free-form/sandbox stage to build an all-purpose mega-ship or an inpractical behemoth of my own.
Once you finish the stage, there is little left to do except to replay old stages to get a higher rating (done by using less materials and guns). It took me 7 hours to finish this game, and while it was an initially fun experiment/distraction, I wouldn't recommend that you pay full price for this.
Are you a fan of "use everything on everything" games? Do you like crude nonsensical humor that includes bodily excretions, indiscriminate humping, and buffoon-flailing? Do you want to reward an indie developer who, upon learning his game was being torrented on The Pirate Bay, gave out gift codes to the site? Then this game is for you!
The game is actually a mass of mini-games connected by chapters, and will not last you more than an hour, two hours tops. But considering it's price of $5 and often $2.50 during Steam's many sales, it's perfect as a humorous distraction you can play during short intervals! Buy now and defuse bombs the McPixel way!
