Shortest trip to Earth - first impressions. by Mischief Maker 08/18/2019, 9:22pm PDT


I found the reviews of this game frustratingly vague before I pulled the trigger and bought it, and my own review is probably gonna be frustrating as well.

This is like FTL, but different. Ships and their crews are larger and more complex. You aren't being chased by a pursuing enemy, instead the impetus to move forward is from only being trade/harvest a limited amount of resources in each sector. Even though the RNG can be every bit as vicious as FTL, this game feels more chill.

ICJ will also appreciate that star systems occupy contiguous space. Even though it's (usually) more fuel efficient to warp between star systems, you can fly between them using normal drives.

Dunno how long the honeymoon will last with this one, but I can't seem to put it down.
