Game needs an extra mission with impossible difficulty, where the developers get laid.

Could you add the song that Kato shows you from their album to the universe drive ost thing? As far as i can tell it's not on there and it'd be great to have it with the rest!

That song is available separately! https://mek9.bandcamp.com/album/press-f

Absolutely loved this adorable game ^~^

Wait... is the anime that Kato has only watched up to episode 7 actually "SSSS Gridman"? Because from the description it really sounds like it.

EDIT: oh and Kato has also played Outer Wilds, it seems. A cat person of culture.

Nice! Love it!

The game actually made me cry at the end... I loved it.

I hope I get to see you again someday, Star Cat!

really enjoyed playing this game.

Anyone else got this error and managed to solve it?  

/usr/lib/libcurl.so.4: version `CURL_OPENSSL_3' not found (required by ./space_mech_pilot)

Hi! The linux build might be outdated, can look into this for you!

No worries, not urgent. Looks like a cool game. Thanks for the sale.  

Interesting. Why does this game even need curl?

I was able to get it to run ok (not using the itch launcher) by installing the libcurl-compat package and using:

$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libcurl.so.3 ./launch.sh

I'm not sure why the dependency on libcurl exists, but it would be nice to update to work with contemporary libcurl.

Thanks for suggesting the solution.
