I hope you had a thrilling Leap Day, reader dear! I hope you, like me, went absolutely wild with loans and credit cards and bets and threats, knowing that it'll be at least four years before anyone can come remotely near you with consequences.

Space Crew is superficially similar to FTL: you manage a crew> in space> as you deal with peril, put out fires and fight off aliens. It's set apart by between-mission management, during which you get the steady dopamine drip of ship, crew and equipment upgrades and customisation.
