If you keep hitting the escape key, as some of us who throw tantrums in frustration when a new airship design fails miserably in combat often do, it will eventually back you right out of the game to the desktop without any kind of dialog popup asking you to confirm you want to leave. It should probably do that.
Addendum: Escape Key really, REALLY needs to NOT exit out of gameplay without a confirmation dialog. Maybe when you press it during combat, it should just deselect all ships or something.
OK, thanks for the feedback. I will change the functionality so pressing escape formats your hard drive instead.
that was a lie
I'll go over the code and make sure that in cases where you'd lose data / game state, there's a confirmation dialog.
That dialog should have a rainbow pop-tart kitten. If it doesn't that's cool, I'll mod it in later.
Then everyone will appreciate the ESC Key even more, you know? I would...
Bwahahahaha! That was funny! I love the game and appreciate all the hard work! Could try Nyan Cat or Troll Face on the dialog.
You should put, "Are you sure you want to reformat your hard drive?" on the confirmation pop-up.
It would be a glorious prank!
