Learned about this game yesterday. Purchased it within 20 minutes. I'm super-disappointed that I missed it during the kickstarter period; this is pretty much exactly what I've always wanted. A combination of Sins of a Solar Empire and EVE Online coupled with awesome art direction and cool lore.
I feel like Whackjob, tearfully drinking more coffee as he plays KSP all night long after ignoring it initially as some sort of cute game.
I feel so relieved, though, that I was linked over here in time to support the game before it came out.
