    As it stands, the game is in early access alpha on itch.io. I apologize in advance, but as I have it posted on an actual platform, I'm going to have to link it as an installer as a zip/stand-alone exe would seem unprofessional in my eyes. I will be adding more screenshots in the coming days as I have been trying to add more and more to the project each day.

    Thank you in advance for your feedback and please do not sugar coat it. I want you to be as harsh as possible because I can't improve what I don't know is wrong. Most of the graphics are placeholders until I have a more finished project.

    Good Luck with your game! Should you want to do an exe google drive or something similar would hold it.

    itch.io does a good job holding the exe. I was just saying that, if I read the forum rules, it's preferred that the link be to a stand-alone exe or zip archive and I'm not going to release two different copies of my game just to stick to the "preferred" method. It seems counter intuitive to me.

    I would also recomend you to upload an stand-alone since this is just a beta and no one is going to install a beta game just to try it out. Think that you always have to be the game making easy for players to play! I hope you launch an stand-alone,then I will be able to try it and give you some feedback since I'm also into space game :)

    The other reason I don't do standalone is because there are a lot of use of external files and I'm not fond of zip files. Installers run a lot cleaner.
