As this game currently stands, I wouldn't buy it. The developers have a ton of amazing plans, but I don't think anyone knows for sure if they will be able to deliver on them. Overall, don't buy it now, wait for the game to get further towards being a game.
Unless you like what you see of the current game, don't buy it now, not even at a sale price. Patience is key. I regret buying it so early, and I will wait and see if 6 months or a year down the road the developers start getting this game to be a game.
So it's been 2 months short of a year since I put up this review. Every now and then over the last 10 months I've seen this game get a big update. Then I read the patch notes and decide not to launch it. The game has sat on my hard drive for 10 months, and now they proclaim the game is "released".
I don't think the devs are mustache twirling bad guys laughing with their money off of people. Judging by the game's older advertising, their vision was just too far fetched. They tried to reach too far into too many different aspects (it will have multiplayer, and crafting, and building, and infinite worlds, and >insert more stuff here) and ultimately failed to reach any of them. I think the devs were ambitous and wanted to make a good game, but lacked the experience and planning neccesary for something of this scope.
LET THIS BE A WARNING TO GAME DEVS AND GAMERS ALIKE:
Figure out what your game will do and won't do and stick with it.
Don't lie to your fanbase. If you do, you've done goofed.
Give your community a clear and concise timeline, and then explain if you fail to reach certain milestons
Don't buy early access games that have crazy claims but have no signs of planning and goals
Hold devs you invest in accountable for making a timeline. Don't accept "we'll get to it when we get to it" for an answer
Some games are not worth it, even on sale.
In conclusion, 2/10, would not buy on steam sale.
