Video: Why you should be playing Rymdkapsel

Missed it on Vita and mobile? Then play the new PC and Mac version!

Rymdkapsel's a thing of real beauty. It's a slight beauty - there's a strong minimalism running throughout developer Grapefrukt's aesthetic and design - but it's more than enough to create one of the most compelling strands of strategy available on mobile and Vita.

"Rymdkapsel is not the biggest game in the world," said Tom in his review last summer. "But it will be a shame if concerns about value drive people away from it. As an alternative to the hectic micro-management of the average strategy game, it's a great success, but Rymdkapsel isn't just a minimalist game, it's also a game about minimalism, where a few simple elements combine beautifully and your true goal is to reduce them further to increase their impact."

It's spreading its wings now, too, with PC and Mac versions recently releasing. So there's no excuse not to have sampled it delights now, basically, but if you should need further convincing then Ian and Chris got together to tell you why you should be paying attention. You can let yourself be gently persuaded by watching the video below.
