Hoping to unlock Infinite mode! Best stellar rogue-like!

I’ve played a let’s Ply of Beyond the Chiron Gate! This game was complex, to me, at first, but, then, I discovered how to play it. I slowed down, read the text, took my time to understand the interface, tutorial, game play and rules. Then, I began to min-max everything, getting my scientist up to level 6 and discovering weird science from all over the universe! I love this game and I can’t wait to unlock further game modes!

Unfortunately, there is a small, but nasty bug, that makes you choose actions without your consent after picking the “continue” option. This has lead to me losing valuable crew members! I hope this bug can be fixed. I play on iOS iPhone 13. Mobile. I use voiceover, as I am blind and visually impaired. I’ve also trouble shooted the problem by turning off background apps, etc. the bug remains and keeps choosing options for me. I hope this can be fixed! It’s a sad mark on a beautiful game, that’s incredibly accessible to the blind and visually impaired! Thanks!

Worth the price - for the app, and the lives lost

Space is vast and mysterious and wildly interesting but it is also cruel and unyielding. This game captures space exploration better than nearly any I’ve played, and that includes $70 AAA titles. This game is at heart a random number generator with a text adventure overlay. The theme is sci-fi: humanity has discovered a way to travel to other systems. Like the author’s other game, Seedship (which is free but nowhere as developed as this - but will whet the appetite), you must explore the galaxy on a ticking clock. You will mess up. You will lose lives. You will make incalculable messes. But eventually you’ll learn from your mistakes, and you will learn about the universe … and yourself. Don’t stop just buy this game.

Ten bucks seems steep at first, but then you realize it’s a passion project. I’m looking forward to seeing the game progress, update, and improve its amazing foundation over time. I think the creator of the game has a lot to work with here. Hoping for more success and popularity for him down the line.
