    Just looked it up, but it’s quite expensive compared to the <£12 I usually spend on steam games (eg Terraria, Stardew Valley, Portal)

      The game has been free for 16 years. This is the paid version to support the devs, literally because they’re getting old and they have medical bills to pay.

      While I typically love a good sale, some labors of love like this or factorio involve so much quality they warrant paying to support these wonderful developers

          FWIW there is a free version on their website. It’s worth looking into. It doesn’t have the fancy steam graphics and interface which made the game much more accessible to people, but it’s an option if you want to see what it’s all about!

            There are also fan made graphics packs for the free version but they are not nearly as good as the steam version.

          This game (and the people behind it) are definitely deserving of the price if you have any love for this genre of games at all. I wish all games had this level of attention to detail and love poured into them over the years.

          I too was a bit skeptical at first when I bought it on the Steam release but its been one of the best game purchases I’ve made in years easily. This is one of those games you’ll come back to time and time again over the years.

      My personal benchmark is $1/hr; so my question is, will I get 38 ($CAD) hours of enjoyment out of it eventually? I think I almost certainly will, this kind of game is pretty on brand for me.

        Fair enough, everyone has their own preferences.
