$5. Seriously. $5?

After watching the quicklook, I'm kind of surprised by the ridiculously low price point. Especially considering the fact that I always felt 'The Ship' to be slightly overpriced. Looks like they just went in the complete opposite direction here - don't think that I'm that into the gameplay style, despite enjoying the art direction, but, since the developer is currently hard on it's luck and had to shut it's doors due to financial woes, even I'm tempted to pick it up for such a low price point.

I was also surprised when I saw it at $5.

I'd buy it if I thought there'd be any chance that people would play it online

it's only 3 maps mind you. Not that there would be any official support from now on me thinks? The pc community would definitely come up with great maps if it survives the first month.

Bought it on steam and been playing it.  Pretty good time if you're looking for something different.

If everyone with that attitude played it, it would be a great success. Do your part.

The PC version is very active, spent about six hours on it today alone.  Can't speak for the console versions however.

Felt exactly the same eh. I played the Ship when it was the free mod and thought it was a really cool idea/art style but the execution was a little off. Then was so surprised at how expensive it was when they came out with the paid version - now this! 
 
It doesn't seem like they've improved the base gameplay from the Ship however...

This. They''ve had a long enough time to come up with something more substantial, and since they haven't, I feel ashamed for even giving them $5.
