I have recently found out that at the current state, the game is broken at the very foundation… it is unfinished and abandoned, because it locks up, receiving (acting upon) no mouse / keyboard commands a few hours into it, even with default settings and on a high(est) spec computer. I think the game is quite good before then, but what point if you can’t actually “finish” it?
And on a side note but still an important one, on the graphical side, there’s no “shininess” to anything, metals don’t reflect anything, everything is just… dull.
The first one can be worked around (as annoying as it is) by quitting / reloading the colony every 30 mins to an hour, but the second one make the game just ugly (and others I showed the game to said the same).
PS. I left a detailed review and “not recommended” on Steam. I’d be happy to change that to a “recommend” and rewrite my review once there is actual dev progress being made and major issues are being fixed, but 3 months in, I just don’t see that happening. Also, most likely the core game-base would have to be re-written to fix some of the major issues, which I don’t see happening. But let’s hope I’m wrong…
