whoa, really awesome concept
this reminds me a hell of a lot of starcraft or any other great RTS. the concept is simple, but that's what makes it enjoyable, cuz you don't have to multitask so much and worry about a billion different types of units on top of economy. what's cool about this game is that it incorporates economy INTO the goals, so you can focus more on defense instead of conquest. i still would like to see conquest in this game at some point (like you have to go attack a pirate base in order to get minerals you need), using this current one as a platform. but other than that, the graphics are smooth, gameplay is legit, nothing's annoying, and the incorporation of hotkeys made me smile. good job!
