What is it about this game?
I got really keen with the Kickstarter was on, paid my money, etc. Followed the game with some interest, installed the very first test software that just generated the cube world. Installed the first Alpha. Played a little but not much (as there wasn’t much to do then).
Didn’t bother installing any of the other Alphas until A8. I followed the progress with a lot of interest, but didn’t want to burn myself out on an early alpha. Read the discourse a bit but not much. Watched the Tuesday updates if I thought of it.
But then I broke down and installed Alpha8.
Now, I’m stupidly overhooked. I play it every chance I get, I’m on the discourse literally 20-30 times a day and keep a close eye on /r/stonehearth (I hate to think what my proxy logs at work look like, luckily I can clear those myself before anyone else sees them) and I hang out impatiently waiting for Wednesdays and Fridays (which is when I get the Tuesday update and the Tuesday and Thursday streams, being 21 hours ahead of you all).
What is it about this game that has me so hooked? I haven’t played anything else all month. Thanks a bunch, @Tom…
