The game is just a masterpiece of colony management, the game can be easily modded and played over and over without losing interest. The graphics are quite minimalistic and charming, even though it could be improved in some cases. Rimworld can be quite hard to understand when you just start playing but its easy to get better at it. Rimworld offers quite a lot of choices, if you want an organ harvesting colony or just escape by making a ship or finding one. Now the thing is, I feel like the overall world events could be improved. Most of the events that happen such as Peace talks or Caravan requests are mostly ignored, and could be improved by making it more interesting. If I was to rate this game on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a solid 8/10.
NB: Have owned the game since early alpha outside of Steam. Probably close to 700 hours I would estimate.
Can’t remember the last time I wrote a review, I guess I don’t feel the need to do it except in extremis. This is without doubt one of the best value-for-money games I have ever bought. The slow but steady development has left me returning again and again to each release, happily playing it for days or weeks on end. The community is awesome and the mods available are excellent.
I’m so happy that the developer gets to see their work hit #1 globally, it’s a very fitting and well deserved reward. Here’s to RimWorld continuing for many years to come. Now, back to finish removing various body parts before I send these people home.
Had this game for about 2+years now ? probably have maybe 300-400 hours in it,
Its a fantastic bird’s eye view hard core suriveal managment game, very little games have the balance of a modern dwarf fortress style game,
As it has no multiplayer you get a feel of people as they can name and describe colonists you will be seeing
as well as it has a HUGE sandbox capability and Free and easy to use editor, giving you TONs of possible content to play with.
As well as now it has the steam workshop, so the possibles to come are really f#cking exciting.
Pro Tip – always euthanize old people with dementia, they will find a way to get your colonists kill i swear.
Been waiting for a good time to do a youtube video for this.
