I'm going through it now, I just found a typo on the intro screen for the third mission, missing text in [brackets]:

"Even if you're not a scientist yourself, the materials can be sold on [the market] for a tidy profit."

Will edit if I find anything else glaring.


The data site was very frustrating and glitchy. I was starting to reach a threshold of aggravation and I'm pretty chill generally. I was getting concerned I would not be able to finish the mission.

I think at first when I succeeded (I think) it did not spew any confetti container. It let me try more times, and finally I saw something green and tiny but it was too small to see almost, and when I clicked it the mouse was not responsive enough, then it disappeared.

To be honest though I am not sure what kind of feedback it should give if it failed, at one point a small very briefly flashing up and gone window said something about something being too complex but was gone in like a second, too fast to really read or get a pic of.

If that is the failure message, how about the minigame window itself flash red or something with red skull and OOPS or something more blatant and possibly wry. Success or failure should be very obvious especially in a tutorial.

I moved on to the relic site, and had the camera zoomed in closer to the ship, so the bracket was a lot better on the confetti. But zoomed out it is tiny and needs to be bigger.

WIth this in mind I scanned down another data site, and by staying more zoomed in I was able to grab the confetti with the proof of discovery, but please please please make that bracket a lot bigger and not shrink so much when zooming out.

I wear pretty strong glasses, and could barely see them while zoomed out even a little.

If I was a new player that experience might have sent me OUTSIDE or something away from the computer. And we can't have people leaving computers behind. They get lonely.

I recommend making bug reports for these.
