Cross-platform, DRM free, redeemable on Steam. Amazing game.

Thanks for the tip Cheapy!

Here's to a great year of gaming in 2014   :beer:

I picked it up on Steam. Heard it was a good, but challenging game. Can't argue with the price.

Me either. I picked it up for full price and still don't mind that I payed that. It's a great game.

Its been 5$ a couple times now. Its a great game and a challenging one at that. The game it self takes only a couple hours to get to the end however I guarantee you will spend countless more b/c You will not beat it your first time through...

Just played this game for the first time and I'm very, very bad at it. However, I see the appeal, especially with multiple playthroughs and learning new things every time you die. For instance, I was sailing through my second playthrough until I was boarded by enemy pirates. I immediately sent my crew at them to attack, and my whole crew was wiped out. I realized afterwards that I probably could've just opened the doors and drained the oxygen from the room they were invading...

Stick with it, and don't feel bad about setting the difficulty to "easy."

Even on that setting it took me over 24 in-game hours and multiple, multiple attempts to beat it once. Still have not beaten it on "normal."

Just wanted to throw out there that this is a great game. Even if it seems like the genre might not appeal to you, give it a shot for $5. I did a few months back after reading a ton of praise for it in a CAG thread, and I'm so glad I did. Definitely in my top ten of 2012.

Easy might as well be called Normal or hard for that matter, lol. I bought this game last november and played it for about a month straight, easily one of the best games to come out in 2012. I'm not normally a fan of space-type games but this is a must have if you're a strategy fan. This game is worth more than the original price let alone the sale price.

The music in this game is really good too..

Great sale on one of my favorite games ever. Buy it sumbitches so they'll make a sequel.
