Redshirt is the comedy sci-fi sim about social networking aboard a space station, starring the station's most ambitious low-ranking peon: you!
Navigate the professional and interpersonal politics of the ubiquitous "Spacebook" to curry favor among friends and colleagues. As intense intergalactic conflict rages around you, it's up to you to accrue those all-important "likes" on your status updates!
Whether you're looking for love, opportunities for promotion, or even a chance to play Zero-G golf with the captain, you can schmooze your way through social circles and claw your way up the career ladder. Perhaps you too can finally achieve the dream of an off-station transfer, or even the Redshirt's opportunity of a lifetime: being sent on an away-mission!

I purchased via steam before I found out GOG has it.
Unlike some of the reviewers - who I don't think purchased/or played the game - I can tell you my first impressions:
It doesn't have to be a "BIG" game - for it to be fun. That is proven time and again by the old games that are still fun on this site.
Secondly - a lot of work clearly went into it. Its worth the cost.
At firstread more - I focused on getting as far as I could in my job - but I found myself becoming increasingly unhappy as the game is about balancing your work with your friends. I think you could play it "Your way" and try to advance quickly or stay in the same old job and just build meaningful relationships with people.
There are a lot of choices in this game - and I highly suggest it. Very addictive.

Bought today and have enjoyed schmoozing my way up the career ladder. Great idea and excellent satire of the shallowness of social media relationships.
Running fine on Win 8.1

First impression of the game is a bit confusing with lots of text and buttons. UI could be better. The most annoying UI clunkyness is my attempts at buttering up my boss for a career promotion, but not actually remembering said bosses name. And the menuclickfest this causes.
After a while, 3 hours play, I can safely say the game has a lot of complexity which is not immediatelyread more obvious. There seems to be a relatively complex social simulation running in the background. And random events to mess things up. (ie make things interesting)
I'll play through the game at least once, even if I find it a bit tedious. I'll get to that point in the summary. Reason is i get the feeling there is something more to the simulation and gameplay I'm not seeing yet. Which keeps me coming back to this one for a while atleast.
The game is abit like the oldie "Jones in the fastlane" with a the addition of a ingame facebook called spacebook. Even it this is satire both of social media in general, Startrek and whatnot, as the player you probably won't like this game if you find facebook or other social sites tedious.
