This game. This game is just fantastic.
It is very simple, yet it has such deep replayability.
You control every colonist, yet it makes sooo many interesting stories.
It seems like it is easily modded, the game is lightweight, and it has a great community.
Takes no space, and you don’t even notice it unless you’re playing it.

10/10 Would die to a random supposedly weak creature again
I’m not the one for writing reviews, so the fact that I’m writing one for RimWorld is a feat in itself.
What is it? It’s a beautiful mixture of Dwarf Fortress, Prison Architect and the hardiest survival simulators available. Hell, even The Sims might be compared to this. Tynan Sylvester’s hard work, sweat and tears have poured into this beautiful piece of software, to create an incredible, awesome digital experience. With each update – some frequent, some otherwise – I find more and more reasons to return to this game, if only to try and survive as long as possible. Build a huge, advanced bunker. A village. Get as rich as possible. Murder everything. Construct a spaceship and escape. You’ll be reeling with sadness as your favourite settlers die off in accidents, friendly fire, if one of your miners discovers an ancient tomb filled with murderous robots.
I cannot recommend this game enough.
