Love this game. Recommend the Prepare Carefully mod, turn everyone into cannibals. Have fun murdering the traders foolish enough to turn up in ones or twos (don’t attack the larger caravans. they’ll just murder you.) Plus the added bonus of making people think twice when the first wave of people they sent at you get eaten!
A little word of warning. Sometimes, when the devs do a big update (which the devs will sometimes do), your saved games will no longer be compatible. Don’t get TOO wrapped up in the story of your magnificent cannibal clan #definitelydidn’tstarttobuildagrandmarblemausoleumcompletewithgoldensarcophagiandgoldensculptures
Great game but could be challenging. A few bad decisions could kill whole colony so you need to think about what you are doing.
One drawback is that this game is quite complex and it could be hard to find what you need to do to make something work.
I was with my caravan and one of my colonists were badly scratched (by guinea pig :D). I had a medic in the caravan so no problem… However, medic did nothing and both were just looking on a clouds while the injured one quickly loose blood.
I was trying to harvest herbs for medicine but that did not helped. At the end I was able to find solution on a wiki which was to create spot where to sleep. Yep, when you know this it’s not a problem but find this out is not that easy task sometimes.
My overall rating is positive. I recommend this game to anyone who like complex games without micro management.
This game is unequivocally the most I have ever played any game, hands down. I must have 500+ hours playing it and have had the Kickstarter and beyond versions since initial pre-alpha release.
The roleplay that you create when you have your characters is just like that feeling you had when you were a kid playing with toys. Each of them had a personality and you fought them and had them get along. It really brings the wonder of just letting fun happen organically right back to me as if I were 5 again.
If you like sci-fi, basebuilding, and/or, most clearly inspired, Firefly, then you need to get this game. I promise you you wont be disappointed. the complexity of the game may seem daunting at first, but I know that within an hour or two you will have a good hang of how to get around and the fun will just start to flow like water.
