Playing the game right now. It's simply awesome. Even if the battles are teethgrinding hard. You need quite a lot of strategy to win. The story is very well done too.
One day I will make a great VN and I will tell everyone in the credits that sunrider inspired me.

Been enjoying the game so far! Got to the part introducing Icari and on the battle after that (first time the Sunrider has been exploded, and I'm on Easy! Though admittedly I did do some wrong moves, so I should win the second time). The story is pretty good, and I LOVE the interaction! I like the strategy-game implementation. The battles are fun, and the voice work is pretty impressive so far! Everyone matches their voice and personality quite well. Sometimes I feel the lines are said a bit stiff, but those are the rare few, most of them are done very well and professional. (Asaga's "I'm a' firin' mah lasers!" is probably the best line so far, lol) I look forward to how this story is going to play out, and with it being a 10 hour game I know I have barely scratched the surface.

I will be blunt and say that Asaga, Chigara and Cladue looks like they had a wardrobe malfunction. Um, that is to say, they kinda look "nekkid". Not trying to be rude, but especially Claude's outfit.

Other than that, the other screenshots DO look interesting, so I'll give it a try.

a) Plugsuits are skin-tight, that's kind of their thing
b) If Sunrider's plugsuits bother you, you haven't played Muv-Luv (Alternative)

I finished the game. I like it very much. It's great. There just some minor things that I do not like: Lack of side missions and lack of moral choices. Best part of the game was deciding to save the transporter or to fuel the war. I want more of this, maybe because the setting of a lonly spaceship fleeing and fighting from an enemy army reminds me of battlestar galactica. But then again I always want more moral decisions. Great game. i am thinking about making and p&p roleplaying game based on sunraider.

Great job on releasing this! When we see a project this ambitious, most of the time, they become vaporware. For it to become a proper release no doubt required a lot of dedication. Going to download it now :).

Finally beat the game! I originally played Normal but the battles repeatedly handed my butt to me... Getting massacred in turn 1 is not fun (damn those missiles/rockets). I finally succumbed to impatience and played Easy T_T.

I really enjoyed your writing! I just felt the story moved a bit too fast? I guess it's because you're introducing the whole cast so you have to cut all unnecessary parts. I kinda wish I could play the time-skipped parts between story arcs though.

When I heard the piano ED song (really awesome song btw) and the all the girls showing on screen maaan I knew it was over. I want more!! Oh well, I could always do some fan art or something. Actually, here's my fan art of my waifu best girl!!! (alongside Ava, but I felt like drawing Sola first :3)

Great job Love in Space, thanks for the releasing this! I will now eagerly wait for the next installment (read: register and participate in your forums :D)
