Looks interesting, ive always liked games where i could explore and sell maps/advice to others

space races? Sweet

if the controls aren't terrible and not too complex this could be a descendant of a classic

i'm gonna quote orillion here, it DOES look kinda interesting. I've played quite a few space sims over the years (including eve, which sucks) and not many of them offer actual CONTROL of a spacecraft. hopefully this game really picks up interest. good luck mate :D
