Lo que dicen los desarrolladores:

Kenshi is currently in alpha state. The game is still in development and is missing many features. There are currently unfinished gameplay features, and the stability will fluctuate as new features are added. Expect crashes and bugs at this stage.
But remember the game receives regular ongoing updates and improvements, by purchasing at this early stage you get the game for a reduced price and can watch it gradually grow and improve, provide your feedback to the developer, and above all you are helping to fund the development for a small independent developer. Remember: the price will gradually increase over time as development progresses, so the sooner you purchase, the lower the price.”

September Progress

So here’s the progress we’ve made this month (with percentages and charts n stuff, due to popular demand ;) :



Dialogue & AI: The actual foundations/ programming of the dialogue are like 75% done, but there just isn’t much actual content yet. Content is <5%. The good news for this though, is that modders will have a lot more power and stuff to play around with.

Stealth: The stealth function itself is pretty much complete, just needs fine-tuning. This will allow you to sneak past enemies etc, and in later updates open up the doors for stealing (once actual steal-able content is added). AI is now scheduled, so shopkeepers now close their shops at night and shoo you out, and guard shifts and patrols change, later leading to possible burglarising. So not much thievery to do yet, but you can use the skill for escaping cannibal camps and avoiding bandits.

Pathfinding: The bane of us all... The foundations have pretty much all been finished for a while now, it’s just a matter of ironing out the butt load of bugs which keep cropping up, hence why we keep saying ‘it’s nearly finished, just a few more weeks now’. So apologies if ETA predictions in the past have felt misleading, at least now we’ve learned our lesson not to be too hasty with our ETAs.

Beasts: The good news is that beasts are going much quicker than we’d originally planned for. It’s still early stages, so at the moment all they can do is basic actions like running and walking. Just need to work on ragdoll and combat animation, plus more normal beast behaviour AI (the unfinished dialogue AI has been making them say some pretty random, mean stuff).

Weather System: Maykol has pretty much finished with the programming for the weather system so now we just need to start on the actual animation and visuals. Later on down the line the different weather will harm characters, damage machinery, ruin farms… that sort of thing. But that’s way ahead.

World Map: This won’t be released until nearer release in the beta version. The terrain is mostly finished now but it still needs most of the texture and foliage doing. We’ve still not started on towns and cultures yet either so it would be too dull to release without more content in it.

Acerca de este juego

A free-roaming squad based RPG. Focusing on open-ended sandbox gameplay features rather than a linear story. Be a trader, a thief, a rebel, a mercenary, a business owner, a doctor, a bandit... the list goes on. Research new equipment and craft new gear. Purchase and upgrade your own buildings to use as safe fortified havens when things go bad, or use them to start up a business. Aid or oppose the various factions in the world while striving for the strength and wealth necessary to simply survive in the harsh desert. Train your men up from puny victims to master warriors. Carry your wounded squad mates to safety and get them all home alive.

Features

Freeform gameplay in a seamless game world stretching over 400 square kilometers. The game will never seek to limit you or restrict your personal play style.
Custom design as many characters as you want and build up a whole squad to fight for you.
Original take on the RTS-RPG hybrid genre. No "hero" characters with artificially stronger stats than everybody else- Every character and NPC you meet is potentially an equal, and has a name, a life.
Build a base where you can research new technologies, upgrade your defences and craft new gear.
You are not the chosen one. You're not great and powerful. You don't have more 'hitpoints' than everyone else. You are not the center of the universe, and you are not special. Unless you work for it.
Variation and possibilities of gameplay. Be good, be evil, be a business man, be a thief, live in a town, live in the desert, join the army, fight the army, travel alone, travel in hordes, build a fortress, raze a city.
Purchase and upgrade your own buildings to use as safe fortified havens when things go bad, or use them to start up a business.
Carry your wounded squad mates to safety and get them all home alive.
Dynamic, ever changing world. Support or hinder whoever you wish, or keep to yourself, the world won't stop moving. This is not just a "game", you are living and surviving in a simulated world.
Absolutely no Level-scaling. The world does not level up along with you, and the shops don't change their inventory to only items matching your level. At the start of the game almost everyone will be stronger than you, and survival will always be a struggle.
Realistic medical system that affects gameplay. A character with a wounded leg will limp or crawl and slow the party down, wounded arms means you must use your sword one-handed or not at all. Lose an eye and it will affect your field of vision. Blood loss means you can pass out, and the blood will attract predators. Exhaustion affects performance and is increased by equipment weight, weather, blood loss and thirst. Severed limbs will need expensive robotic replacements.
Intelligent AI that allows for characters to reason and work towards long-term goals and desires. Squads work together and carry their wounded to safety. Characters can be setup to take care of micromanagement for you.
Aid or oppose the various factions in the world while striving for the strength and wealth necessary to simply survive in the harsh desert.
Independently developed with no design influences, or alterations dictated by men in gray suits who have never played a game before in their lives.
Original game world. There are no fantasy-knock-off cliches. No magic.

Este juego es raro a la par que divertido.

Es un sandbox, en el cual podras manejar a un personaje o un grupo. Puedes ir entre ciudades, vendiendo objetos y ganando dinero por ello... o asaltando gente para quitarle sus posesiones... o construirte un pequeño asentamiento, con casas, granjas, maquinaria para poder sobrevivir sin rendirle cuentas a nadie.

El problema es que el desarrollo va muuuuuuuuuuuuy lento. MUCHO. Pero no parece parado o abandonado... simplemente nuestros nietos podran disfrutar, con algo de suerte, del juego terminado.

Aun asi, merece la pena probarlo.

Este juego es uno de los que mas me ha entrenido en mucho MUCHO tiempo con eso lo digo todo :)
No os dejeis engañar por el tiempo que pone que he jugado xD
En este juego vais a poder empezar con unos inicios predefinidos bastante interesantes algunos con mas diferencias entre ellos que otros, (tambien podeis crear vuestro propio inicio con una herramienta del juego). En este juego nadie os va a enseñar a jugar (tutorial ingame nope, si buscais por internet si...) luego se hace divertido experimental y ser asesinado por hacer cosas que no debes (quien me mandaría ir al campamento de canibales solo...) o pasarte un buen rato recorriendo el mapa para ver que venden en cada lugar (a precios prohibitivos jeje) teniendo que rapiñar en los cadaveres de gente para sacar algun equipo decente (por que no lo negemos empiezas con una espada tan oxidada que parece se va a partir en la mayoria de inicios xD) pensando en que vas a llevar un traje ligero para correr o algo pesado para aguantar los palos? buscando en tabernas gente que reclutar para tu escuadra y asi poder vender/robar/crear tu fortaleza o hacer cualquier cosa de manera más rápida!) teniendo que entrenar a tu personaje por que para que negarlo hasta el vendedor de un pueblo tiene mejores stats y ropa que tú xD

Kenshi is a game where you start off feeling small, incapable, and alone. From the get go, you are basically a nobody; just another face in the crowd, another cog in the machine, another meatbag for the grinder - but it's not what you are, but what you would rather be, and how you get there that makes this game enjoyable. The journey to the ultimate destination of your own choosing is where the fun lies. Will you be a lone trader, looking to accrue the greatest mountain of wealth the post apocalyptic world has ever seen? Or a wandering swordsman who hides their true strength to dispatch armies with relative ease? Perhaps a general at the head of your own personal body guard? Or the mayor of a little tiny village just beyond the next dune? Regardless of what your goal is, it is exactly that - yours.

When I started playing Kenshi, the one thing that first struck me was the graphics. Relatively blocky, and a bit funny to look at in some cases, i.e.: buildings clipping in a sand dune, or walls built at unreasonable angles. But, I don't play a game for graphics; to me that's just a secondary benefit. What I'm after is the gameplay, and what I was in store for really put a smile on my face.

My character started out in a small town on top of a mountain range. I could see another down off in the distance, and figured that I'd walk there after exploring this little fortress in the sky. Did I mention that the towns are more like fortresses? I didn't? Well, imagine a town surrounded by walls taller that the highest in-game building, with a group of 20 or so very heavily armed and skilled guards for it's protection. That's what constitutes a town in Kenshi. 'Relative' safety, but I'll get to that in a minute.

Heading towards the other town, I noticed that a group of bandits had started charging up the hill at me. I thought, "A group of bandits? Looks like fun, let's try out the combat!" and to my astonishment, I was obliterated. Beaten to within an inch of death, bleeding out in the beating sun, unconscious. My stomach had taken massive damage, and one of my arms was pretty much useless. I had been surrounded, beaten up, and left for dead. And my assailants? Took off to raid the town. Luckily, the city guard switfly dispatched them, but I was left on the hill. So, fast forward about half an in-game day, and I limp back to town (of course, I looted those bandits that attacked me and left them for dead; take that!). After patching myself up sufficiently, I take to luring bandits to town to enjoy the fighting with the guards and levelling myself up.

Now, speaking of levelling up, skills are sorted into multiple sections: dexterity, strength, the various weapon skills, just to name a few. You gain proficiency by performing the tasks. You get stronger by carrying heavy objects around, not by killing a few rats like some other games, but not like there's anything wrong with them. You develop your character through hard work and dedication. Want to become better at running? Take off your heavy equipment and do a few laps. Don't know how to swing your weapon? Engage a training dummy or another person for all that matters. Even your ability to widthstand pain can be increased. How? By losing. That's right, you are rewarded for losing. Those bandits didn't kill you when they had the chance? Sucks to be them, because now not only are you angry, but you're also more accustomed to the pain. The next time you see them, they may well be on the losing side of the fighting. Kenshi rewards you for survival and practice, much like the saying: whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.

So back to my little tale to attempt to capture the game a bit more - After fighting a couple of fights with the city guard as backup, I tried luring a group of bandits back to the town only to my surprise - the guards at the gate weren't there. Either they left on a patrol, or were fighting another battle elsewhere, I had no time to check. The bandits were hot on my tail, and the only chance I had of survival was to either lead them away from town, or take refuge and hope to escape while they killed all the civilians. And in that moment, I saw a few brave men - shop guards - rush from the protection of their walls, and stop the bandits in their tracks. A bandit or two slipped by, and I gave chase. Unfortunately while I spent a good while fighting one, the other slayed an innocent civilian, and I was happy to see that the population count in the town had actually dropped. Protecting the towns actually has an incentive - no population = no trading. The bandits dispatched, the guards returned, and I resigned to head off towards that other town in the distance.

Now, as I could see the town, it didn't seem far. Plus, I had enough gold to recruit a new person to my little gang of righteous corpse theives. With some new equipment, a little bit of extra knowledge of how the world works and a new companion, I set out for the town. I travelled for at least two in game days. Two. I saw the sun rise, and set, then rise and set again. Such is the scale of Kenshi - the world is an open sandbox (quite literally at this point - no grass, just sand and rocks), and things that look far off in the distance are far off. And as I mentioned before, zooming out - I became a speck in the desert. The only that that kept my position known was the damn name tag floating above my head.

Kenshi may not be a game for everybody, but if you enjoy a bit of realism, and quite a bit of freedom, it may be worth it. It's still early access, which means that there are quite a lot of glitches, issues, bugs and crashes (I haven't encountered anything severe however), you may want to pass the game until it's more stable and developed decendant comes about. What appeals to me the most is actually two things: one, you are rewarded for winning, and are rewarded for trying. So long as you aren't dead, the game isn't over. It makes for one heck of a story if you keep little notes about what happens to your character when you play. The second thing is the scale and immersion of the game. Beyond the glitches sometimes breaking the immersion, I actually felt like a lone survivor in a desolate world, where people preyed upon the weak, and civilization may take days to reach on foot. Since I just recently bought the game, I can't say much about the developer, except that from reading what their vision is, it really is a grand one and has a lot of potential. Kenshi has lots of potential, but it also has lots of work left to be done. So pass it if you're looking for a more fleshed out game, but definitely get it if anything in this review has a major appeal to you. As for me, I'll be wandering the desert with my small group of companions trying to make a living in a world where death can come from even a small group of ill-trained, ill-equipped people. Afterall, you may know how to fight, but if a knife cuts you, you'll still bleed.

As many people have stated there are plenty of bugs and the development is incredibly slow. I still love this game. I have, I think, 110 hours of playtime and a majority of that is on one playthrough. The combination of survival, builiding, combat, squad play, and an intricate stat system keeps me coming back (even if a lot of that list doesn't work properly). If this game is ever completed, it will be one of those games that sticks around my library forever.

Ok this is my first ever review. Normally i just let others do this for me but i like this game to much not to voice my opinion.
I'm totally hooked on this game, it is very addicting. I like the whole explore and survive aspect of the first few hours as your building your squad. Than picking a spot to build your town and building and crafting it up is also very fun. There is a definate progression to all your skills that is satisfiying. I find the game in its current state to be completely playable for hours and am very excited for all the future game features to be added.
I've had minor problems with crashes and bugs and have found the import function on the load screen to be a very useful
tool for resetting and eliminating most bugs.
All in all cant recommend this game highly enough.
