Yeah I’m already addicted now
Been playing this for quite a while and it’s definitely in my top 5 favorite games of all time. If this was around when I was a teenager, I’m not sure I would have done as well in school. This game has the most hours of any on my Steam account, and is always one I can play, even when I’m in a funk and can’t get into gaming. The soundtrack is fantastic (to the point I bought it) and very soothing. I’ve had loads of fun with just the base game, but the fact that a variety of mods exist, plus the built-in scenario editor make this game have the replayability you need. Prepare Carefully is a must-have mod to setup your characters exactly how you want when playing a structured scenario. Otherwise, embrace the random and the craziness, because that’s when this game is at its best. Highly recommended!
I did receive the steam product for free, but only because I supported rimworld back before alpha .10 I can say this is an amazing game and the dev is very community focused. Seems to follow with ludeon forums, rimworld reddit forums and even takes a look at the mods that are produced for the game amost as a suggestion for potential content in this game.
Don’t mind an alpha state game? Go crazy with mods? Into a colony/management simulaters like Dwarf fortress, Gnomoria, or Prison architect, this is the game for you.. Especially if you like losing.. slowly.. horribly and wonderfully with a challenge.
TLDR: Tons of ways to challenge yourself and play around, there are bugs, but.. failing is part of the game and it’s just as easy to start fresh. Huge Micromanagement simulator type game.
