Tesco are currently ahead of the pack with a £15 price tag, already nearly three pounds less than what Asda Entertainment, who have the next cheapest offer, are asking but with a promotional code, you can bump off an extra £2.25.

Infinite Space is one of those games that I'd never consider buying at full price but might well be worth a try when it is as cheap as this. The story is (very) loosely based around Arthur C. Clarke's novel Childhood's End, with a narrative which follows Yuri, a young man who is working to become the captain of a spaceship. In typical rpg fashion, our young hero finds himself surrounded by a motley crew of companions who help him navigate the furthest reaches of space and become embroiled in a vast conflict between opposing planetary factions.
While it, of course, does not quite live up to its name, Infinite Space offers you a vast universe to explore in an adventure which can span hours by the score. Sadly your journey may not last this long, or even reach a conclusion, though as, thanks to some poor design choices, it can be a real struggle to wade through the unfriendly gameplay and less absorbing sections to reach the more fertile grounds.
