I cannot recommend this game enough. It is definitely my all time favorite game. This game really challenges you and makes you care about what happens due to the problems your colony and its inhabitants go through. If you don’t already know, this game is a colony management game set in a time where human civilization has spread throughout space, with some planets being stuck in medieval or tribal eras, while others are in a ‘Glitterworld’ status, which is told to be modern and rich. You take control of colonist(s) who will be randomized (unless you have mods that change that), and you and these colonist(s) will be sent to what’s called a Rimworld, or a planet that is capable of preserving life, but is chaotic and uncivilized. Your goal is to research, build a spaceship, and attempt to escape, while also surviving what the game and planet throws at you. Your colonists can go insane, pirates can raid your colony and kidnap your people, enemies can siege and bomb your base, robots can crashland near your home and poison or enrage the fauna and flora, or you could encounter a tornado! The fun in the game is overcoming these obstacles and advancing through both necessary and unnecessary methods, whether you decide to farm food and/or drugs, recruit and/or harvest and sell organs from prisoners, or use animals as livestock or as meat-shields and/or suicide bombers (Boomalopes & Boomrats), is up to you. If you are looking for a multiplayer game, there are multiplayer mods that also support other mods (if you plan on using mods)! Of course, if you don’t like management games you may not enjoy certain aspects of the game, but it is worth a try if it goes on sale!
I first stepped into Rimworld after friends continued to speak about it relentlessly in my discord. Finally I decided to go ahead and buy the game. Initially the art style felt too simplistic and unappealing, however, that very quickly changed and I begun to find it very charming. As I began my first colony, i was so quickly enamored by this game. I would watch my colony expand, defend themselves from raiders and nature its self. Colonies would collapse and Id have to start over again and it didn’t hurt at all. Every new colony was exciting, it was a new story unfolding in front of me. I can remember the exact moment that I fell completely and unshakably in love with this game. I was still very new and I hadn’t prepared properly for the winter, they didnt have food stockpiled and the animals have migrated away from the cold. My colony was becoming malnourished to the point where they were bedridden and couldent move anymore, except one. That one colonist left, without my direction, dug up recently killed raiders and force fed their corpses to my bed-ridden colonists to save them from starving to death.
Your colony will fight their damnedest and resort to anything to survive. That’s what Rimworld is, anything to survive. The most moral of person will find themselves delving into war-crimes and horrors just to make it. When low on money I would find myself harvesting organs of prisoners, selling them, selling cocaine, etc.
Honestly, I heavily recommend this to most people, i’ve recommended it multiple times to all my friends. I don’t leave alot of reviews but Rimworld deserves it.
You’ll be doing yourself a heavy favor by playing this
Very simple, One of the best stragety, survival base-building games out there. Worth every penny.
– More Details:
I’ve been playing this game for a while now, even before the (Steam) release.
And the impressions on this game were outstanding. There’s so much you can do, manage and think or act fast for the safety of your colony, in this case it depends on the type storyteller you choose from/game-mode.
The game offers three types of storytellers, each with a different perspective. Either you are a hardcore player or peaceful/dislike challenges.
The game also offers four in-game seasons. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Biomes may vary on them.
A variety of biomes are offer to play on. Each one of them provides with differents kind of wild life as well temperature and natural resource to use at your advantage.
Each colonist have their own traits, likes, dislikes, relationships, friendships, opinions, gay, straigh, lessbian, cold blooded, nudist, night owls etc… you name it. Each, trait will have an impact against others as in real life of course. However, those personalities will affect and cause rage and fights and even lead to serious injuries If not dealt with as best as possible for the good of your colonists/happiness.
– Research and Craft:
Research is very important to craft great gear, weapons and many useful utilities to enforce your colony and their survival.
