Comment: So I’ve had the game for a few weeks now and I love it. It’s something between Minecraft & State of Decay or DayZ. The crafting is becoming better with every update. World generation is not added but planned.
The first thing everyone notices about this game is the price. But what is early access?
Early Access is commonly accepted to mean you are paying the developers and funding the game development. You are not “buying” the game but rather helping to further the development and help pay bills.
So is the price something that should cause you to forget this game?
Answer: Yes & No. It depends how you think about Early Access. With the description above, I see no room for complaints, you are supporting development with your wallet. As a reward you get the game free when it is released. Since you also get the game early, as in right away, you also can help bug test and report issues to the developers.
So yes, the money is a high price to pay. Was it worth it? Yes. I would buy a second, third or fourth copy if I had friends/family interested in playing.
Will this be the next Minecraft craze? It could be, but the price holds it back, the multiplayer in general is a disaster unless you play with friends only.
Multiplayer is what Minecraft multiplayer would have been if there were not plugins.
Now, the building in this game can be hard, it is what I had always hoped for in other crafting/building games. The blocks all have physics, which means buildings can fall and crush your face. But as in real life, if you provide the proper supports you wont have a problem.
The mining in this game leaves much to desire, it’s rather slow, and is based on Stamina & Tool damage points, which drain from every hit. Water refills stamina but your tools will require repairing or replacing.
The good point with mining though, there are not caves to search, you just start digging down and you will start finding ores. Which is great, it’s not realistic in anyway but is a improvement over Minecraft’s mining in a lot of ways, (which was not realistic either.)
Overall you have both Multiplayer and Single-player and both are great in there own ways.
You have many options when starting a game and they can be changed at anytime before starting one of your saves.
If you don’t want to play with giant wasps and hordes of zombies tearing through your walls ready to eat you, you don’t have too.
Play in a war torn landscape as the soul survival or join MP and find other survivors and rebuild civilization.
Build a giant bunker underground or a giant castle. Build a wall with many traps and defenses surrounding a small town and build a community. It’s all up to you and as any role-playing game with unlimited replay-ability it is up to you to find the fun. It’s yours for the taking.
