Will give it a try, if only for "DeltaV" in the name ! 😀
The effects look really good in this game, especially for from a top down view. I haven't bought basically any top-down space games in a very long time I have been waiting on Starsector to complete because I think that game is a complete game ( http://fractalsoftworks.com/). What this game has going for it is the fact it looks well done and the price is reasonable and if there is modding and the developer continues to update it for a while it could have a shot 🙂
Kinda forgot about this game, looking at their page now and there has been a lot of developments since 2019. Not a bad price also its at $9
