Greetings fellow gamers
I have purchased CE around 8-10 months ago. The game offers an excellent game play idea, you are supposed to be the one that guides the lifes of your collonists, tasking them on what to do, defending from bandits, fishpersons and other foes, making friends with some of them in case you want a different approach, etc. As time passed, the content of the game has vastly improved since the day I purchased it. The idea behind it is very nice.
But, there is a big issue, an issue that most of the time, in my case all of the time in terms of playing CE, damages the usage of the game. Since the day I bought it, and until now, I have never achieved playing for more than a couple of hours until the game breaks. The only viable choice you have is to roll back a few saves, and try again. Yet very soon, your game will crash again, and the last saves will again be corrupted so you have to roll back.
I waited for time to pass, and came back after 1,2, 3 months, hoping that I can use what I have bought. The end is similar. I give up on this, waiting for the final version of the game, whenver this might be.
I highly recommend the game, but not in this phase, unless you just want to support the developers.
To be honest, I do not understand how one can purchase a broken product, and the product is still available in the shop. I understand what Early Access is, but if it costs money, you either deliver a working product with limited options, or you don't ask for money. For support, there are websites like Kickstarter.
Sorry for the bitter words, I most probably am annoyed, but I think it's understandable. I have a high end machine, system and drivers all updated because I do it regularly since I work on it, but the issues are the same. Game crashes. I don't have the time and the patience to write tickets, since I payed for something and I expect it to work.
Early Access should be all about a game with limited options, but a game that works.
EDIT: I will delete any comments that contain insults or attacks. Be polite please. Cheers
