At first I thought the only procedural generation is about the layout and nature of planets in the game universe, but there is clearly much more to discover. The game seems really well thought out(despite being easy to get into). There are different starting characters with different goals and the game rewards experimentation and learning by death(which usually detracts me from playing further, but here it works more like in roguelike games, where I just want to try again). It's not long(especially when you die) and can be enjoyed as a coffee break game. I highly recommend this game.
