I’m updating this review after many many more hours of playtime. This game is absolutely fenomanal and I mean that 100%. If you don’t have this game, you should get it right away! My friends had been telling me to buy it for ages and I didn’t, now I regret it. I could’ve been loving tihs game for way longer if i’d just listened.
things that I wish I knew when I started:
1) Equip your settlers with the weapons dropped.
2) Build a small base first and expand later, you need shelter
3) Make a farm, it’s an (almost) reliable food supply
4) Make a wind turbine with the scrap that drops immediately
5) Make a research bench ASAP.
6) Keep up to date with your colonists needs and condition
If you do all that yous should be good to figure the rest out yourself and enjoy this amazing game like the rest of the fans have. I hope to see you crash-landing soon!
Insansely addictive, if you’re a fan of colony building, settlement defence, with a social link system build in then this game is for you. Out of almost 200 steam games I own, this is the one I always come back to and always have a fun time with. The scenarios that you could come with are endless, the game is so unpredicatable. One of the best things about this game is that you can set the level of randomness, if you just want to enjoy and base build with very little threat there is an option for that. If you want constant randomness there’s an option for that as well.
It also has a very active modding community and game is updated regularly with new content. I hate sci-fi games but I love this game this one, that can tell you something. Buy it now, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have this game if you’re fan of this genre. Other games of this genre won’t even compare once you play this one.
I’m not normally one to use mods in games as i like to play how the developer intended, but after about 30 hours in i noticed that there wasn’t as much content in the game as i had originally thought.
I ended up downloading about 20 different mods that added subtle extras (more crops, rename animals, mend apparel etc) and from then, i couldn’t get enough.
After losing my first colony to a heatwave, my second to ancient aliens, my third to a pack of rabbid hares and my fourth to a colonist going on a fire starting spree and lighting a container of chemfuel, i finally managed to get my s*** together and eventually finish the game.
I highly reccomend this to anyone who loves micromanagement to a point where it can become slightly overwhelming when you get more than a handful of colonists.
This will definitely be one of those games i revist time and time again.
