You _must_ preorder the game to play Alpha version. Downloads are available here: http://fractalsoftworks.com/2011/04/29/starfarer-alpha-released/
This is the first time when i play a game like this and i like it; plain and simple nice flow of missions and of course nice story :)
Wow, the screenshots don't do it justice, it looks awesome in motion. Also, very fun! varied, mind melting gameplay (grappling around while sticking on to platdorms while not knowing which way is up really induces an immersive sense of vertigo)
Can't wait to see further progress!
Forum topic: hi
It runs rather well considering how quickly it was ported. Captured a bit of gameplay for L.G.C.
The brightness / contrast controls in the options.txt fail to work... for now.
Nice graphics update, but for single player Quake 1 gaming I prefer DarkPlaces :)

Are you asking why they have so many 100 ratings? i can only answer for the first site. Victory games only rate 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 out of 5 stars, so you will only have 100, 80, 60, 40 or 20 ratings.
abandonia reviewers just have different criteria than others i guess ;)
