This classic game is definitely worth playing to any survival game enthusiast. In fact, when it comes to futuristic survival games, this one is a pioneer. It covers multiple races with distinct gameplay strategies, crafting, a nicely written back-story and loads of aliens to kill... or be killed by. It's also moddable to the point enabling the creation of expansions to the original game, or just something completely different.

Although its introduction to Steam and the improvements available in the Special Surprise Edition (™?) are a fresh breeze to the game, this version brings the same spirit of the freeware versions from 2003 and onwards. In fact, one of these earlier versions of Notrium is open-source. Hence, my greatest inclination of buying it here is to support the (very) nice developers behind it. It's still worth every cent.
