seeing a group of ships fly past in formation in Drox Operative is kind of cool

Whoever sent rain to Texas I appreciate it, but can I return the allergies?

testing Drox Operative - found out anomalies look really cool, I had to cautiously approach one because I didn't know what it was at first

Any chance you might give us another screen shot or two soon?

testing Drox Operative - I almost felt sorry for the Dryads when I dragged at least 20 enemies to their planet, except I died and they lived

We will eventually post more screenshots and at least 1 video, although videos are much more work.

I don't think you need to make professional style videos. Everybody's doing basic videos these days, and having the dev narrate a little looks really good. You just need to capture a couple of cool things in fraps, stitch them together, and then narrate it. The narration could be as simple as "hi, this is Steven Peeler, I'm working on this new game called Drox Operative... I just wanted to show you some cool stuff in the game... so this segment is what happens when you attack other ships, this part isn't implemented yet but it's going to be like so and so, etc." Lo-tech, youtube style, honest videos are perfectly fine -- they're more personal and make more impact than 'professional' style videos with music worked in and some animation on screen, which indie devs can't really afford to do properly anyway (plus it's a waste of money).
