Lunar Flight
« on: April 14, 2012, 12:33:14 pm »

I searched around and couldn't find a topic for this extremely interesting looking game. It's up on Steam, currently 20% off its usual price. Does anyone have this game? If so, what is it like? Worth getting?

I've had my eye on this for a while and will be picking it up once I've worked my way through my backlog of other games. RPS had some coverage of it a few months ago which sounded good, http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/tag/lunar-flight/

I think I'd be more interested if it were a full colony builder instead of "just" a flight simulator. Why do so few games have decent colonization mechanics?

Looks really pretty though.

Lunar Flight is 75% off at Desura and Steam until the 26th. It's a steal in my opinion.

What sort of specs are required?

Can it do multicore processing? I have a dual core processor at 2.3Ghz each.

Also, what about Intel graphics cards? Can they handle it?

I have no idea. I doubt it's going to be too system heavy, it's a Unity engine game I believe.
