    While it is far from a perfect game, it is, in my opinion, hard to deny the beauty and amazing concept this game provides. In many ways itWhile it is far from a perfect game, it is, in my opinion, hard to deny the beauty and amazing concept this game provides. In many ways it seems to be the exact definition of an indie game. Made by likely as few as one person; "CAT Interstellar" exceeds at showing the player that often times, less is more. Taking myself roughly only 2 hours to complete (could have been way shorter but I explored everything), it left me satisfied, and with more questions than when I started. Mostly questions of, "Will the developer have a follow-up? What if this were a larger scale game made by a big name studio? How would we, as a species, approach a feat as large as colonizing Mars?" Nothing which takes away from what this game is.

    As stated above, a very small production team of possibly as few as one person designing the game, accomplished quite an impressive feat. Graphics and textures were smooth and believable. Sound design was simple: It's hard to know what Mars sound like, but having some atmosphere it's not impossible to make a guess that it has plenty of wind and sand drifting across plains of open land. Despite there being few voice actors for the NPCs, the VO was actually rather good. I have no complaints. Aside from the graphics, what really impressed me was the music of the game. It was mysterious, yet fulfilling and completely fit the letter for setting the mood for the landscape of Mars.

    All in all, I absolutely recommend playing this game. Bought for a mere $4 on Steam, it's not going to put a hole in your wallet like all AAA games do. It's definitely worth the money and (more importantly) your time.
