So....this game ASTRONEER....is in pre-ALPHA.

All I have to say is that the pre-ALPHA for ASTRONEER is worlds better than most BETA's and even many full-release games I've played lately!

 

Think 'space-engineers' married to 'minecraft' wrapped up in the art style of 'no man's lie'.

On STEAM the almost 12 thousand reviews are 90% positive, and that's for a pre-ALPHA.

As the end of the election is upon us, I thought it would be fun to take a look and see how the current statistics of player data were going in The Political Machine 2016. We have ‘Exit Polls,’ which consist of data that we collect from the game on things such as what candidates people are playing as, what party is winning in games, what issues are deciding the wins, and more.

You can see all the data here.

So lets take a look and see where we’re at with this data at the ...
