Reviews

"...a promising new take on the genre" - IGNhttp://www.ign.com/articles/2012/09/19/patterns-could-be-the-next-minecraft

"Patterns is focused on an experience not dissimilar to Minecraft, but with a heavier focus on creativity" - Joystiqhttp://massively.joystiq.com/2012/09/20/linden-lab-reveals-its-next-game-patterns/

"Players assume the role of an unnamed polygonal protagonist set free in a world begging to be deconstructed and manipulated.That’s the sandbox. What any player does with it is entirely up to them." - Polygonhttp://www.polygon.com/2012/10/12/3494046/poking-the-box-why-linden-lab-creates-shared-creative-spaces

It's such a pain on how devleopers can get away with ♥♥♥♥ like this, and the people who have been fooled like myself are not compensated for it what so ever.

"early access So it will get better" Alright. A year later its still lackluster and boring, and it hasnt had an update in about a year now. Too late to get a refund, i was screwed over. 10/10 would get ♥♥♥♥ed by devs again

You can't buy this anymore, but I've only been writing reviews for games I liked so I wanted to find a game I didn't

Pros:
-Triangles instead of cubes allows for far more creative freedom than similar games
-Colorful look is inviting and friendly

Cons:
-Completely hosed by the devs, game got worse and worse with updates, level sizes got smaller, multiplayer required login beyond Steam for some reason so you can't play it on LAN anymore
-They stored your freaking password in plaintext in a config file!

Final Score: I Regret This Purchase/10 (2/10)

It was a nice concept, but it was poorly executed. Oh, and it's no longer a thing..
