Much more than an unpronounceable name

Normally when a video game claims to be 'minimalist', this is a reference to the visuals.
Rymdkapsel, on the other hand, is a truly minimalist game. Everything from the visuals to the gameplay to the goal to the way in which you interact with the world is totally basic.
But don't let that fool you into thinking Rymdkapsel is too simple to bother with - quite the contrary, in fact. This is real-time strategy done very right.
Some sort of spaceship sits lonely in space, with only a couple of crew members to its name. By dragging rooms onto the screen you can build your ship and bolster your crew in preparation for attackers.
You might not be able to say 'Rymdkapsel', but its brilliance is clear enough for all to understand
