Post news RSS Alpha 5 of Space Station Alpha for Windows and Linux

A whole boat load of new stuff added as SSA starts to look more and more like a game every day! This is the first time the concept of aliens that stay permanently on station has made it into the game and you will now be hiring aliens as officers to get access to your stations cooler command functions. A energy shield door that blocks air and allows workers and customers through adds to your options when it comes to oxygen management.

A bunch of other little changes and fixes make the game a lot more stable this time around as well.
