Shortest Trip to Earth is a brutal spacefaring roguelike, whose challenge occasionally undermines the depth and quality of the overall experience.

This game is not going to be something to appeals to everyone, or even to a large audience of gamers. But there is a dedicated group out there that will appreciate what there is to offer here.

A difficult, interesting journey through deep space that constantly has you making interesting decisions. The complexity isn't always a good thing but there is a ton of replay value here.
