    The title says it all. £35 seems a bit steep for what seems like an Indy game rather than a proper studio release.

    Has anyone bought it? Could you offer an opinion?

    this is a purely philosophical point, but what does the game's provenience matter when we are judging its quality as a product

    if you are a "fan of the genre", I'd say check it out

    Maybe, but I just expect Indy games to be cheaper compared to AAA studio releases, which to be fair £35 is I guess.

    I did end up buying it and I’m hooked lol. Bit of a steep learning curve and the tutorial isn’t especially helpful.

    I would describe it as Solaris meets Sim City.
