Star-Twine is a strategy game with ambient sounds, unique visuals and a virtually infinite number of levels to play on.

Battles unfold on three-dimensional maps where you, a small point of light, must build structures to extract energy from the threads that make up the world. Energy can be spent on new structures, each with their own unique abilities.

The enemy AI builds while you build and reacts to your play-style. This results in challenging battles that require strategic insight and quick thinking.

Just some little indie thing.  Nevertheless, space setting + ambient soundtrack = almost certain purchase from me, I guess.  Sigh.  It's about 7 on Gamersgate at the moment.  That's only 0.00168% of the price of this yacht!

Don't look at Universe Sandbox on Steam then. Just don't do it.

No music AFAIK. It's all SCIENCE!

Let me know how Star Twine is, that caught my eye too.

Well my wishlist is almost as large as my backlog right now so I probably won't buy it any time soon, but I'll probably play the demo over the next couple of days.  I'll be sure to post impressions when I do.

tried the Universal Sandbox demo, interesting but I can see it getting boring very quickly.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.

It seems alright, for the low price. I figured it is kind of like a railroad sim, good to relax. Only $50 cheaper.

Universal Sandbox is available free as long as you don't want to build your own simulations.

Which sort of defeats the point. Believe me, not much there otherwise.
