Edit: This game is still amazing. Never a dull moment! Buy it!
I adore this game. I’ve never played a game exactly like this before, but I love survival games, I love base builders, and I dabble in strategy. Watched a streamer play it and knew I had to have it. Have already sunk 100 hours into it. My first few colonies didn’t make it to a week. Each time I restarted, I had a different experience. Crazy, hilarious things happening left and right! It can seem overwhelming at first, with so much that can happen, and no hand holding, but just by going slow I got the hang of everything. I’ve fought off slavers, harvested organs from prisoners, watched as my beloved pet was devoured by a wild animal, and had to arrest a colonist who became fixated with dead bodies..yikes! It’s never a dull moment, and the fact that if you ever do get bored, you can mod the crap out if it, makes buying this a no brainer. Well worth the money, so if you see it on sale, grab it!

He is going to dig up a corpse and present it for all to see.
The final straw was intense pain.”
This colonist took a body from outside and threw it down in the mess hall on the dining room table when everyone was eating dinner. 10/10 would play again
Rimworld is an amazing game that is never the same twice. Incredibly rewarding when you figure it out and get a working colony but all around brutal at every step and never a dull moment. It has it’s quirks but for a game that emulates real life only you are the one to blame when things go wrong.
It has been a fun journey through the early access and seeing the game evolve for the better each time. The learning curve can be quite steep and you will fail many times before you come up with a successful idea for how rooms are to be laid out, defenses placed and battles fought. You are only limited to your imagination.
It started well I got 4 people with 1 Yorkshire terrier called Xavier
I managed to find some mortar shells for some reason
all was well
got food, beds and power
then a storm happened
lightning set my storage on fire
it spread to the mortar shells while one of my guys was fighting the fire
It blew it all up and him aswell
the other colonists saw it happen
saw there friend explode
one person went mental
and badly damaged one of the colonist
the other two badly wounded the mental one
and all the medicine and aid blew up with the mortars so two out of the three colonists left are bleeding badly
so they both go to bed
the last one goes on a food binge because Xavier her dog died
the two bleeding colonists died overnight
and the third one died a couple of days later from starvation because going on a food binge and eating all the food
Didint even get attacked once.
