I was a kickstarter backer and have been playing this game off and on for a couple years now, glad it is on Steam now – updates are much more convenient. The game is an amazingly deep simulation, dwarf fortress deep but with very approachable graphics. The developer has enthusiastically supported and developed this title over the years and it has gotten even better with Workshop support for mods and extras. This game has given me endless enjoyment and many ‘omg I can’t believe it is 4AM already’ nights (I play on Chill/Easy because building the colony and trade is enough of a challenge without roving gangs armed with plasma rifles getting in the mix).
This is the bar for craft and attention to systems detail that I wish more games could meet – well done in every respect.
Have spent an abysmal amount of time on this game, and have used it as a story generator multiple times, other times as a creative prompt and of course playing it just for fun. This is my most played game in my Steam library, and fortunately this quarantine bullocks has allowed me to spend ludicrous amounts of time in this game.
This is easily the best game I have ever played in my 7 years of playing computer games. The price tag is a little deterrent for some, and I had a hard time justifying the price at first when most of the games I buy are on sale for much cheaper than retail price, this game seemingly never goes on sale and is a lot higher than the normal price I pay for games. I can say now that it was totally worth it, and I highly recommend it to *anyone* who has a PC.
