You are not supposed to play this game to win it. You are not to expect that it will let you ‘beat’ it. Hell, you aren’t even supposed to have a chance at survival at all.
This game hates you with every bit of its existence. Its unfairness will test you until you fall. Its goal is to break you until you are sure you cannot be broken, before it snaps you like a twig.
Its purpose is not something to be taken as sport.
You are not supposed to best this game. You do not play this game.
You experience it.
If what you are looking for is a game you can overcome with perseverance and ingenuity, then leave, as the only way to beat it is to cheat it, and that’s not fun.
But if you want what can only be described as an experience worth having, in the form of overcoming hardships, drama of community, naive hope, twisted insanity, and crushing despair…
Welcome to rimworld… prepare to die…
Rimworld is a excellent title, Forged through years of passion both on the developers side and the communities. the base game provides an excellent starting ground, and i recommend everyone plays atleast 5 attempts before bringing on the mods, just to trully experiance what this game has to offer. After your 5th game i recommend you go and find mods that you think will expand the experiance. this game provides a limitless amount of enjoyment and though the price tag seems rather high for a game of this style, but i will tell you here that this game will take up loads of your time.
ill tell you from personal experiance that at first i didnt like this game i found its brutallity disheartening, but once you let go of that idea and take it for what it really is you will find the game signifigantly more enjoyable. this is the reason my self and tens of thousands of others absolutly love this game and what it does
One of the best games that I have recently bought.
Cons: No native multiplayer (Note there is a mod though, but I have not tried it. Ill edit this will feedback once I do) 🙁
Complicated but not the bad complicated. Simple to start. Hard to do well.
Literally makes a random detailed story. I had a literal family that was trying to survive.
Raw as hell. My colony got attacked and one of my important colonists got a collapsed/lost lung from the fight. This made it super hard for them to be productive, and I felt bad. So…. got attacked again by raiders and captured one of their survivers… and as one does, I had by top medical colonist harvest a lung from the prisoner and surgically implant in the orginal colonist. No the prisoner did not survive lol.
I never had a game that made me sit back and think WTF have I done?!?!?
10/10 Would harvest prisoner organs again
