Anyone checking this out?  It's in early access right now - normally I don't buy games to test but I couldn't help myself here and just pulled the trigger.

It's basically like Factorio but instead of the goal being to leave a planet you're trying to harvest and industrialize an entire local cluster.  The scale really drew me to it.   I'll let you know my thoughts after a few hours in.

Saw that. Hesitated because the learning curved looked steeper than my periodic sobriety would allow.

It took me about an hour to start to get comfortable. I'm trying to avoid guides or spoilers because I want to unlock things organically and enjoy the surprise.

Gotta say... this is a damn good game so far

What's with the little orange robot/space marine thing?  Is that the primary actor in the game?

Yeah that's the player character you use to interact with the environments

Started building my first dyson swarm. It's starting to look really cool. Going back and cleaning up my logistics for efficiency now

You'll be type 2 civilization in no time.

I have no intention of playing this game but I've always found this kind of stuff fascinating.

I would still recommend checking it out. $20 and it's shockingly polished

I've opened up warp drives and am now building around other stars. Really cool stuff

Dyson sphere is almost fully built!

Anybody still playing this? I went on sale today for $16.  I notice it's still early access a year later.  Have they continued developing it?
