The main character is called Buck Mann.

When I saw the trailer for Space Run last week, I immediately opened up an IM window and sent it to a few friends. Then, satisfied with having shared the strategic space ship construction game, I felt the sense of closure I normally get from posting things here and wiped it from my memory. That’s why it’s only now while cleaning my inbox that I re-discover and bring its trailer to you.
