I'm one of the developers of Alpha Polaris and it is so great to read your comments about the game!
Alpha Polaris has not been a box-office hit, but it really doesn't matter when you hear from people who enjoyed the game
I have noticed that the release of the game has not been perfectly smooth, people have had to wait a long time for the english CD version and the price is indeed quite high. You can buy the english digital download from our website
for under 10€. There is also an option for getting the game on a cd for 10€, but there is no retail packaging. If you buy from our website the money goes straight to us developers.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
