  1. The CHOAM company seems to have lent their spice miners to this game.

    This looks somewhat like SpaceChem, another awesome science-based puzzler.  I’m definitely getting this too.

    Haha, suckers without DRM punishing people that buy this game legitimately this will become the most pirated game of the year!

      Aren’t we punishing legitimate purchasers more by making them deal with DRM? Regarding piracy… When you include DRM, someone strips the drm, then every pirate plays drm free anyway. So the only people who have to live with your drm are your legit customers,

    I really want to recommend this game but I have to tell you to save your money.
    Five stars for content and art.  Really, it’s genius.

    But SHIT it’s always misinterpreting what I’m pointing at or asking for.  The interface is a twitchy methhead between you and your goals.  There’s no esc key function to get out of it’s bitchy moods when you have a tool hovering over a place you can’t place.  How about undo?  We had undo in the damn 80′s.  This thing should have 100 levels of undo.

    And the bitch drinks all most all the ram in my milkshake.  SO ANNOYING.  Like, Clever Game is so clever I’m going to close all the other apps on my 4 core 3 gig macbook pro?  NO!

    Wait for ver 2 or for the developers to learn play testing or something.

    This is what give indie’s  a bad rep.  Pretty girl.  Lips like an ashtray.  Impossible to get the dress off.

    I will recommend this game to 100 people when the UI is sweet and pure like quicksilver.

      Sorry you find the interface difficult; we are working on a next release with more improvements.

      What do you want it to do when you have a tool you can’t place in that position? Like, move it back to where it was, or what?

      Undo isn’t really viable once your tools have consequences and you’ve already collected stuff.

      When we did profiling, the game rarely went above 1gb, but it does consume a fair bit of gpu/CPU on higher quality settings.

      If you’d be willing to send me your email address, I’d love to have you in our beta program so we can make sure we resolve your issues – .
