I’v spent about ten hours with the game since learning that Steam Play exists (thanks, OiS podcast!). Having a lot of fun with this!
One thing which bothers me quite a bit is fourth-wall-breaking UI. I don’t like seeing game save info or “quit to menu/OS” on the PDA, or time compression info on the ship’s displays or logs (including the “time compression cancelled due to x” messages). Would much prefer the convention of a standard game menu any time I press ESC, and time compression status being show on my (rather than the player character’s) monitor.
Is the desire to have all of the UI diegetic something you’re firmly wedded to?
