It’s not fun removing a game from my wishlist after finally playing the demo, but it turns out Star Trucker is not for me. And if a game about driving a space truck to make space deliveries in space isn’t for me, I wonder who its audience is supposed to be.
When you start saying “okay, driving the truck is too boring, let’s have the player manually change batteries at random locations in the cab every ten minutes to keep them engaged,” …maybe you’re not solving the right problem.
