Reviews

“I thoroughly enjoyed the game, it was accessible but challenging. The narrative elements and characterisation add an extra layer to an otherwise fairly mechanical game and solidifies it as a unique and memorable experience that I’d happily recommend to fans of the genre and newcomers alike.”
IndieHive

“It looks like FTL, but there’s a lot more to it, leading into areas of micromanagement that the classic space-rogue never dealt with.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Shortest Trip to Earth is still a very fun roguelike, and those who are familiar with the subgenre will be very keen to jump right in.”
