Re: How "save game" works here?

Yes.

you can make a run through the game in around an hour, but since space bar pauses, you can take 3 hours or more depending on your play style.

Re: New guy questions

2. is definitely a bug unless the boarders were low on health and they teleported back right as their ship blew up (they will retreat if they can when low on health).

Re: Last guy, stage 2... really? (spoilers)

you can hit him fine if you use a boarding party to take out all but one weapon (leave one enemy trapped manning the inner left laser gun is my strategy of choice), and then use your boarders to take out the helm and shields. On stage 2 (if you've killed all the central crew on stage 1 this is easy)...

Re: Random encounter results random?

yea, the events that kill your crew members sometimes give you a crew member instead (or other reward), so it isn't a matter of there being a right or wrong answer, it is a gamble each time. If you already HAVE a full crew though the right answer is usually to ignore the event rather than risk losin...

Re: [Suggestions] DLC, and the future.

making it so missiles can be taken 1 at a time by boarders from the weapon room, and drone parts from the drone room might be interesting (both from your ship by enemy boarders, and from the enemy ship). You'd probably need to limit it to 1 of each per battle. Maybe they'd have to damage the system ...

Re: Introduction and newb question

I agree it would be nice to be able to sell back fuel/missiles/drone parts at the store; as the replies said some random encounters allow you to sell them but that doesn't help you if you are standing at the store. Scrapping them for 1 scrap each seems fair enough. I've always found with a missile b...

Re: Hints to beat the boss

-- all spoiler-ish duh -- the strategy that works for me is boarding parties. Use them to take out the weapons - but leave one of the inner two weapons with its crew member so the AI doesn't kick on. Once that is done on the first form, kill the rest of the crew in the main section (any missile weap...

Re: Yea just broke the game - Stalemate

Seriously, how much more awesome can you add to this awesome sci-fi environment with a it phrase like "ACTIVATE AN EMERGENCY JUMP!" omg, this ^ Agreed. You could have it remove a level of engine you had purchased (no refunded scrap) as the penalty if ship damage isn't sufficient to really...

Re: No endless game afer boss battle?

Or a sandbox option from the start that endlessly has two more nodes to pick from each time you get to the exit (no last stand) Or a +new game that lets you bring x number of crew members from a previous run with their skills intact in place of the default crew. That way you could have your favorite...

Re: Various gameplay thoughts
