I was thinking multiplayer, but thats a big thing, actually, I am not sure if people even like the game right now, if not, then I guess no need for the updates. Oh, right, I will update the price, meaning go 0.99$ or even free depending on the sales (honestly just want the dev costs to return

So I hurried up and bought it for $2 because this looks like its well worth the current asking price. I'll report back after playing for a little bit.

So I've only had time to play two levels but I wanted to report back that this is fun RTS/SIM style game. The levels I've played so far start you with one planet in a solar system, on your planet you have tiles to build production facilities, planetary defenses, and space docks for building spaceships. There are different types of production facilities that produce different combinations of resources that are used for building new facilities, defenses, and ships or upgrading existing ones. You can then send off your spaceships to attack other planets and space stations or you can keep them around your planet for defenses.

This is really a fun game well worth the asking price. Great job on the game!

ojtitus, thanks for playing!

Later you can deploy on new planets, scavenge debris that's often left from destroyed ships (actually debris floats and clumps together following the gravity law and on each level you discover more advanced ships/structures to play with, obviously enemies are getting tougher also!
