Just bought this game.... is there any way to play full screen? It opens up in a window, and when I maximise it the game is in a square in the top-left corner.

How is that an alternate history? Isn't that what happened?

...Colonized Venus... That means there are communists living on Venus.

You don't actually think people went and just setup little houses on a desolate, un-inhabitable planet.. Right?

Of course not it would be pretty preposterous if it was just a little house.
They brought giant space farms and stuff how else do you think they survived the first winter?
