The game has been sitting in my Library on Steam but I’ve been reluctant to play it in fear I will be disappointed with yet another 4x sci-fi game. And this one seemed pretty damned interesting when I looked through the feature list.

I’ll have to give it a go soon :)

I’ve played it again, and could add a point to the score above. The UI is still clunky, the game is idiosyncratic at best, but under those problems is a complex, involved and well-designed 4X space game. Plus it’s dirt cheap now, all the bad reviews really hurt the price. Woo!

Unless you’re one of the chosen few who doesn’t struggle with the monstrous tide of bugs and gets crash-free gameplay. But at the same time, it does showcase what this game is capable of, and it’s pretty impressive. Help us, Kerberos Dev Team, you’re our only hope.

Pity though as I had incredibly high hopes after seeing some really early footage. It just doesn’t seem to have evolved much from there.
