  • Conclusion: Redshirt is an incredibly fun and interesting game mired in small problems that prohibit it from becoming a must buy. The social science behind making characters like you and working your way up the food chain is fun and addicting, but the sometimes unwieldy interface and tense while ugly as well as broken away missions are unfortunate spots on an otherwise good game.

  • Conclusion: If you spend time reading all the jokes or the endlessly repeating messages and leave your escape until the last minute Redshirt could last you up to 5 hours. Theoretically there’s replay value with several different ways of winning to try out, but it all gets so repetitive I can’t imagine I’d ever play it again, especially with the abrupt ending (whether you win or lose). It’s also the slightest bit pricey at £14.99/$19.99 for what it is.

  • Conclusion: Redshirt is a noble, satirical, and generally successful experiment in social simulation. At its best, it presents a gleefully cutthroat philosophy of human interaction, pushing you to be as terrible as possible within a charming cartoonish parody. It doesn't always manage to hold onto that feeling, but Redshirt has enough unique personality to endure.
  • Pros: Joyously cynical relationships, Accessible interface, Science-fiction homage
  • Cons: Little challenge, Buggy

  • Summary: Sadly, I don’t know if my sleep-your-way-to-the-top strategy will actually pay off in the end.  Redshirt isn’t complete yet, so I couldn’t progress all the way through.  I’ve enjoyed what I got to play immensely, though, and can’t wait for the final product.  The game’s currently available for the pre-order price of $20, and I’m going to tell you right now, even in its unfinished state, it is very much worth every penny.

Redshirt Review

GameSpot
21 November 2013
  • Excerpt: In the future, social networking is still a big deal. It's mandatory, in fact. Your account on Spacebook, the proprietary social network of space station Megalodon-9, doesn't just let you share your life; it dictates it. The food you eat, the activities you take part in, the people you befriend, the dates you go on--it's all dictated by buttons on a screen. Everything is a few clicks away. It would all be very sad if it wasn't also quite funny.
  • Pros: Funny sci-fi humor, Clever relationship-based gameplay
  • Cons: Activities become rote over time, Randomization can lead to frustration

  • Summary: I never thought I would ever play a video game that would ask me to think whether it was a good idea to break up with my current lover in order to accept a relationship request from my current boss, which would make it easier to advance my career.
  • Pros: + Solid gameplay, + Impressive social network commentary, + Star Trek theme
  • Cons: - Limited replayability, - Some unclear mechanics

Redshirt – The Verdict

  • Summary: Soviel Potential und so viele vergebene Chancen! Redshirt bietet Satire und Gesellschaftskritik auf hohem Niveau und ist insbesondere für Sci-Fi-Fans wie mich sehr interessant. Die Facebook-Simulation hält dem eigenen Medienverhalten gnadenlos den Spiegel vor. Die generischen und inhaltsleeren Posts auf der eigenen Pinnwand könnten durchaus aus der Feder von so manchem Nutzer der irdischen sozialen Netzwerke stammen.
  • Pros: satirischer Spielansatz, viele Sci-Fi-Anspielungen, gesellschafts- und medienkritische Elemente, viele Skills, Jobs und Interessengebiete
  • Cons: repetitiver Spielablauf, nervige Menüs, sinnlose Außeneinsätze, teils fragwürdige Beziehungsentwicklungen, zu wenig Auswahl (Textbausteine, Posting- Themen), schwache Kulisse

  • Summary: Toen ik nog studeerde – wat ook weer niet zo lang geleden is – werkte ik graag in de bibliotheek. Zeker buiten de tentamentijd was dit een rustige omgeving waar ik zo'n 90% van mijn scripties heb geschreven. Maar niet iedereen kwam daar om te studeren. Regelmatig zag ik 'studenten' die de hele dag Facebook op hun laptop open hadden staan of die continu naar de iPhone grepen om Whatsapp bij te werken.
  • Pros: Flauwe sciencefictionhumor, Goede Facebookparodie, Vreemd verslavend
  • Cons: Weinig te doen, Meer een tabletgame

Il social network stellare di Redshirt

29 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Ho scaricato il gioco ds Steam tramite un codice fornito da Positech Games. Ho indossato la maglia rossa prima con un umano eternamente depresso e poi con un paio di razze aliene. Ho scoperto che sui Social Network sono un vero imbranato.
