I nearly pissed myself laughing whenever Spaceman walked, left-right-left-right-left-right (laugh)
I still can't get over it, I'm giggling uncontrollably as I'm writing this :D

Rib-crushingly hilarious!

Stuck, couldn't save, will play again though until I finish it.

Fail at Floaty Rog' now!  still having to deal with what games are going through

Games like this make me wonder why I spend so much time working on other peoples' games instead of my own.

Wonderful game.

*land*

I am talking positively about Ben's new game spaceman in space. It is a silly game. And I like it a lot.
And now I am walking away to play it some more.

left right left...

Awesome crazy silly game, Ben. Only...
Spoiler: ShowHide

Debugger is left on. And I *always* press these buttons and then I was screwed up because my inventory refilled and I can't scroll it and now items are out of reach.
So I'll just play it again. GRINNING!

I think I don't understand the gravity of the situation, because I find this game extremely funny!
Ben & Grundislav, are a "dream team" :D

When I played this game (briefly, very briefly) I kinda got reminded of those bands that used to make good music or, those movie producers that used to produce good films that made great movies but now make not so good stuff and, just because of status expect it to (and probably will do) well. Do not get me wrong, I loved the Ben Jordan series and know this game was a piss take but... Why release it? Why waste your time and take the effort with the backgrounds etc.. It is boring, the comedy is mediocre and overall a waste of several minutes?  I guess that is probably the best review I can give this game. Hey, I am just being honest. Seriously guys.

Probably because they don't share your views on what warrants a good use of their time.

This game was really charming.  Thanks for the laughs guys!

I like how your 'review' as you call it consists of exactly ONE point: 'the comedy is mediocre' ('it's boring' is not a point, that needs elaboration). Unfortunately, humor is very much a matter of taste and can never really be rated objectively (as seen by the number of posts here by people that enjoyed the humor very much, including me). I think you should either go into much greater detail when criticizing a game so heavily, especially if it's well-liked by the general community or just keep your opinion to yourself.

Indeed. It is, in fact, space boring :)  Also, the space comedy is space mediocre, yes? Space yes!
