Get this game ASAP! It is AMAZING (also I claim this board in the name of Vohn!)

This is such an awesome and interesting tool! Classrooms should use it to teach about the galaxy! It's really cheap at the moment too. I got it on Steam and I must say it's very interesting. There's no story or anything, it really is just one big sandbox, but there's lots of cool things to try. From launching planets at Suns to creating suns with such mass that galaxies are pulled towards it, this game is GREAT!

It's also really easy on the system, and yet still looks beautiful! It doesn't take a powerhouse computer to run and can help teach you about the universe. Really cool game!

Very, very awesome game. I just saw it on Steam, read the short description and bought it instantly. Haven't been able to put it down since.


Also, the first time I realized you can crash planets into each other was a mistake. Earth into Jupiter. It was simply a sight to behold. Two celestial planets, several billion sentient beings snuffed out in an instant. An act that will soon be repeated if you don't acknowledge my sovereign rule over this board. SEVERAL BILLION!

Heard that it's awesome too, but actual teaching can be left to Celestia.

Yeah I read that's what it's used for. I don't think I'll get it, although it sounds like something I'd enjoy. I'm starting to run out of room on my comp, lol.
