One of the few Kickstarted games that lives up to the hype, meets literally every single one of its stated goals, and is actually a fun game.
There’s a ridiculous amount of depth in RimWorld: shooting people hits body parts, body parts can get scarred and infected, a dirty hospital increases the chance of diesease and infection plaguing your colony. A colonist dies because of a weakened immune system from old age, and then their daughter goes berserk and punches someone else.
RimWorld is one of the Dwarf Fortress-like games that can actually match the depth in mechanics, but presents gameplay in a much cleaner art style and has a straightforward UI.
For those worried about the amount of content: there’s a metric of mods. Mods as far as the eye can see, and the game is really easy to mod.
