Hi Guys,

Wow last night was pretty awesome. Here is a link to the Reddit post. It explains it better than I. We are just in shock at the outpouring of affection.

http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/jm99y/its_shit_like_this_indie_developers_space_pirates/

Right now we are digging through about 200 emails, but so far they are the kind of emails that are nice to receive in the morning for the most part. We just wanted to share with you guys.

Blorfy

NP. Social media tools and the "write a reccomendation" button in steam are excellent tools :)

It brought me here!

I had no idea about the game and this is going to actually be my first purchase of a online game like this other then minecraft. I'm excited!

Can't wait for things like multiplayer.

cro91: not to dampen your enthusiasm, it's a great game easily worth double the asking price, but don't hold your breath for multiplayer support until the time comes for SPAZ 2 or at least a full expansion pack. If the game was not programmed with multiplayer support in mind, it would take a lot of work to rewrite entire portions of the game engine to add multiplayer support. Maybe something simple like controlling 2 ships with split screen from the same computer, but any kind of networked play between different computers (even over LAN) is probably not gonna happen in SPAZ 1.

Aye, MP is almost certainly not happening in this iteration.

Don't let that dissuade you though. I've now bought SPAZ twice (couldn't wait for the impulse delay...) plus donated directly to the devs. I've paid more for SPAZ than I'm willing to pay for most AAA games and I regret nothing; definitely worth it.

Thanks for the positive comments guys :)

Yup buying SPAZ now pays for a multiplayer in SPAZ 2 :)
