Quite impressive, if a little short. Puts me in mind of both Portal and Antichamber.

Fun, clean gameplay - excellent successor to TTD and similar games.

Excellent game. Much improvement from Transport Fever. Graphics significantly improved, gameplay improved. A few regressions IMO, in particular the new maintenance system which while a cool concept, leads to poor gameplay.

Early Access Review
Excellent factory-building game. Genre-defining, its a game against which others are compared. People are making games which are Factorio, but with X other feature. An Early Access success story. High level of support for mods, and modders. Its KSP, but for factories.

Cannot recommend enough. Played extensive before it was on Steam. This game is very cheap for what it is.

The website boasts of a 60 day guarantee - improve your guitar skills by playing daily for 60 days, or your money back.

This is a woeful understatement. This game has improved my skills and all the while, in the guise of entertainment. A fantastic purchase, of which I regret not a cent.

EDIT: If you see this on sale, and you liked the idea enough to check out reviews, buy the thing.

Apparently, they picked the Blue Pill.

Has a pretty good database of military ships, aircraft and weapons. Its cheaper than a subscription to Janes. There are a lot of decent scenarios written for this game.

That all said, this is still a game, when it could be a simulator (which is how it is advertised). It cant seem to pick between game and simulator - UI that makes life harder than it has to be, which is an absolute nono for a game, then a very realistic list of units to pick from - that do not follow realistic performance or tactics, especially the aircraft.

In fairness to the games developers, the game does handle ship to ship combat in the modern age, very well. Its aircraft still need a fair bit of love.

This is a game that for the longest time, I held hope that there was some chance that issues would be attended to - and if they were, the game still has that potential to be a fantastic military command simulation - but there is seemingly no interest in realism for the sake of reality.

For $30, this would be a fantastic game. At over 3 times that however, its simply not worth the money.

EDIT - Having spent some time on the latest build of 1.07, Ive decided to revise my fair price upwards to $45. A number of very much needed improvements have been added since my last serious amount of in depth play, granting the player significantly more control over their units.

All other things being equal, one thing you cannot fault the developers on is their update cycle. Comparing 1.01 and 1.07 goes to show what an update cycle SHOULD look like. Many other small developers could take note.

EDIT - With 1.10, Id pay $50 for this title. Controls are better, aircraft are smarter, a host of much needed improvements. Kudos again to the devs - literally the only thing at this point making this review a not recommended is the price tag. The title still doesnt scratch the realism itch hard enough for me, but it is still an enjoyable game.

this is an art driven game well worth playing. the narrative is great too, with simple but solid gameplay.

9.5 outta ten, but only because I never give a 10/10.

there is just something visceral about getting the muscle memory down pat for an Action Reload the first time. pressing R just doesnt cut it these days.,.. drop the mag, switch mags and put it in, and rack the slide....

visuals are simple but impressive given the 48 hour long development time of the game.

if you are at all physics inclined, this is probably more productive (but just as bad as) TvTropes.com...

suffice to say, I learnt the basics for simple rocket science for this program. I ALSO learnt why there is a difference between back of envelope rocket science, and million reiterative equations for REAL rocket science.
