I've looked into this game and this dude's games in general. He is making the same mistakes the simulator devs were making in the '80s, that Wing Commander fixed. I explain part of it in the first part of my Wing Commander essay, and I will explain the rest in the second part: https://www.patreon.com/posts/22427463

Consider that the first part of his tagline for this game is "Read Zines". I don't know what kind of person would be excited to "read zines" at all, let alone in videogames lol. Total fail in game design.

I will have a review up soon that will analyze some of the issues.
