Easily the most dull game of the year.
I've been playing Edge of Space the past eight hours; with the single thought in my mind of: "This game must get better eventually, right?" well; I've been essentially in the same spot with the same equipment for the past five hours. Killing crabs n' jelly fish, and mining titanium, aluminum, stone, mud, clay, and dirt does get old after a while. I found a strange white box with a blue arrow on it in a cave and tried to us eit, but that just flashed some screen for half a second and went away; and I was unable to interact with it again. But let's put things into points for the sake of organization:
*Good movement system.
*Good art & music.
*Bad interface & not very user-friendly.
*No explanation for the purpose of alot of things, for example the matter recombiner; the game does not tell you what it does, and the description is simply: "You can't even wager a guess as to how this crazy machine works.", normally checking a wiki would help an issue like this, but their wiki is ancient and not updated. And then there are things like the random events that go on in the world like the crab nests, and random things such as the weird white box with blue arrow- no idea what purpose the box served, didn't realize the crab nest was an event.
*Lack of things to do; the only goal you might have in the game is simply go lower.. And there is no reason to go lower as you have all the resources you need in the top areas.
*Lack of resources; it may seem like a good thing that alluminum is basically the most awesome freakin' resource in existence, but it really makes the game boring when you're not bothering to actually look for things.
*Uninteresting areas; why would the devs think it was a good idea to make the entire game take place on some floating rocks ?
*The relaxing music and police sirens(?) doesn't lower the boring factor of this game.
*Terrible enemy AI.
*Poorly made tutorial levels, tutorial more interesting than the actual game.
*Extremely useless chests; for this let me explain how chests work, you craft one then place it in the world; then you right click it to open it, you then have to manually drag and drop each item you wish to place in it, into it; and the chest only has three slots.
*Lack of creativity; how many times has the space shark and space animals concept been done now?
*Very unprofessional dev team.
*Just a shoddy game in general; people like to consider it as a terraria and starbound ripoff- but in all honesty that's an insult to both Terraria and Starbound.
*I'm fairly certain the preview images which show awesome things happening are all fake.
*Dropped items from full inventory disappear within seconds, made 7 chests to put my items somewhere- didn't realize my inventory was full, chests vanish. Make a full suit of aluminum armor, don't realize inventory is full, poof.
*Glitchy items: Made two chests, had two slots free- placed a chest, the other chest vanished into nowhere. Used an emergency recall, had two in my inventory; the other vanished.
If I had any suggestions for this game; I recommend they take a page from Windforge and add player made spaceships to fly around the edge of space.
ps: Don't use the Omega research unless you have good equipment, it just brings you to a boss whom will murder you if you still are using low level stuff.
Well, all in all I recommend the game; but make sure you don't play it at night or else you're liable to fall asleep from the sheer boredom it causes; and if you're planning on buying the game because of the awesome screenshots you saw of like a desert and mechs and whatnot- those are definitely faked, there are four biomes; you can go to about two of them, a grassy biome and a cold biome. There's also about 8 or so enemies currently and about six(?) different resources.
