Cool trailer but waaay too much text...
Explaining the setting properly is more important than dazzling the eye.

Hopefully the demo will also be present on GOG this time (just like it is with Shadow Tactics and a couple of other games).
It's up to GOG. Obviously, we have no objections.

Also, I forgot to mention that Mark Yohalem wrote the text for the trailer.

Vault Dweller the trailer serves its purpose very well, would be wonderful if you could share some more images and music in the coming months!
Some recent stuff:

Nate did over 20 concepts so far. The "throne rooms" for the main factions look majestic and very distinctive.

Will wishlist, tiny bit of feedback, I read at a normal-fast speed and I struggled to keep up with the pace of the reading while glancing at the pictures in the trailer. Can't wait!

Agreed. The video is too fast.

2020 eh? So that means it will be delayed to 2025 and that means the final release will be 2030, if wonder if we will be alive by then ?

Honestly I was expecting a higher minimal required config. So it seems my old PC could run it (that plus Realms beyond are enough to make me happy). And only 5GO HD free space. Well done ITS !

re: trailer - it's fairly mediocre, but spending more time on the trailer means not working on the game. I don't see indie trailers as a good marketing tool (unless they feature cutting edge visuals), so we rely on hands-on experience instead (combat beta, full demo, early access). Our first marketing push will start when the combat beta is released. Then we'll do a new trailer.
How hard would it be to slow down the speed?

Not if I can help it.

If you insist on having all that text in the trailer, at least make it more bite-sized by cutting it into more screens, there really is too much text per screen on some of the longer ones (that goes away too quickly). Also I would argue that some of the info isn't really needed in a trailer, like who the hell cares what the names of the factions are (or how many are there) when watching a quick trailer, I even forgot them already.

Other than that the art, screens and the logo, just perfect.

I think I will overcome my distaste for Sci Fi to play this. Looks set to be a sublime game

I think the ship should be named Trump Space Force 01.
