Also, because its a Paradox game, the interface is ass.
If you like the genre of games, this is one to lose a couple of dozen hours to. If you just think "oh, Mars is cool" its probably good to skip or download a mod that lets you zoom time faster.
Huh, it's a Paradox game? Thar alone makes me interested; I'm a big fan of Stellaris.

Yeah, that sounds like Stellaris.
Thanks for the review; I'll check the game out.
It's published by Paradox not developed by them.
