Unfortunately I can't recommend this game. I personally like it but since the developer decided to leave the game unfinished and incomplete, I can't recommend it. What you have is a fun Spacestation simulator that minus the bugs and glitches would be good enough on its own. However these bugs and glitches are often game breaking and could even destroy your save. That being said, don't buy this game unless you have a high tolerance for pain.

What Space Base DF-9 did right

-Great visual Appeal

One of the things i love about SBDF-9 is the look and style, they just seem right. And it reminds me of the Sims 4 or Sim City(2013)



-Great idea for a game
lots of people have done building games, city games,etc, but Space Bases are few. The idea for this game is Perfect, now if only the game was...



What Space Base DF-9 did wrong


-Did not deliver
on the Double Fine Games website they had a roadmap (now long gone) of things they said they were going to try to add. It was a big one. And yes i know that even they said it wasn't "set in stone" but it was used to get people to buy the game, and now only about 20 to 40% of those features are in the game, and it kinda feels like they tricked us.

-Left the Game unfinished
Double Fine Games the dev and publisher has left SBDF-9 to make another game and thereby make more money. They basically blame the community citing that "not enough people bought the game to fund it". Perhaps because the game is in an Alpha state at the most

-♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI
I don't know about you but when i'm in a space base on the far reaches of the milky way, i get pretty damn ♥♥♥♥♥♥ when i don't have Five Star meals, or Gyms, or bars, or TV. So mad i start trashing my own Oxygen tanks thereby killing myself. What? You wouldn't do that? Well the AI in this game does that. Yep, if they aren't living in luxury they decide life just ain't worth living.

-Not Worth the price
If Double Fine Games was going to keep working on this, i would say this is worth the price, however they aren't so really there is no point in spending cash on it. Its not going to get better, its not going to get fixed, and its not a good game.

-bugs and glitches that will never be fixed
Not being able to build, Oxygen not being produced despite the fact i have Oxygen tanks and more, these are bugs and glitches that will never be fixed.

-Made us pay for their failure
This is more of a issue of Double Fine Games itself. They the whole reason they said the game is being shut down is because one: Not enough people bought it, and two: they ran out of Kickstarter money. If they did run out of kickstarter money then STOP working on another game and spend that money on the game you sold us.

-This is not the first time Double Fine Game has let people down
Another game by DFG, Broken Age was also misleading. The game is sold as a full game but it is like TellTale games in that there are "Episodes". Right now, a year after the funding for the game ended there is only ONE episode, with a "promise" that the second one will be coming on "sometime in early 2015"

Who Space Base DF-9 is for
-People who like wasting money

-People who don't care about playing an unfinished game

-People who buy games on sale

-Idiots


Final Thoughts
The idea behind this game is amazing, and if worked on properly it could be a masterpiece. But it won't and thats a shame. Normally i keep supporting even bad EA games because i figure "eh, they will fix it later" i mean at the point i've already given them money, the best thing to do is hold on to the hope (however pointless) that the game will get better. There is no hope with SBDF-9, not anymore. And yes, modders could make it better, and they could make it a great game, but my belief is that if modders have to fix your game, and i mean Make it playable, then you've already failed.

I poured money into this expecting it to be an ongoing project. It started out interesting for an alpha but then we realised that this was as good as it was going to get.

The developer either mismanaged the money so severely to the point where it should honestly be questioned whether Doublefine has any business in early access or they simply took the money and ran. Not bothering to finish this game as other projects needed more attention.

Either way we are left with a sorry excuse for a game. Horrendously shallow gameplay with barely any of the initially promised features. It is a barren boring game that you will grow weary of in less than half an hour of starting it up.

Do not buy unless it goes for less than a dollar.

This is not my review but I thought it should be noted that this game won "Best mod support" from PC Gamer.

What does that mean you ask?

"It's always great when games arrive with built-in mod support, but this year Double Fine went a step beyond. Not only did they release the full source code for their Early Access game Spacebase DF-9, but they left hundreds of planned features incomplete, giving modders the exciting challenge of finishing the game themselves. It's rare to see that sort of selfless generosity from a developer, and we salute Double Fine for passing the torch to modders, or at least hurriedly chucking the torch at modders from the window of their limousine as they screeched away from the curb."

So yeah. Buy at your own risk.

The developer treated this game like a 3 legged dog. It was fun and cute until they tried to play with it, Then it became clear that it's just a crap version of a better thing. So they packed it up and drove it to the forest and let it out "Go on boy, be free" they said. Spacebase just sat at the side of the road watching curiously as the door shut and the car drove away. It wasn't until it's early access collar rotted off that Spacebase realized they were never coming back. But yet it waits.

So I guess this is what happened:

- Tim Schafer goes to a handful of investors with a prototype for a game. A game that has potential, a game that has that Double Fine sense of humor we all love, and a game that will fill a void in the market that has been left open for far too long.
- The investors love it and give Tim Schafer $400,000 to make this game.
- Tim Schafer gets addicted to cocaine and hookers and completely blows (heh) all of his investors' money, but just about this time Steam early access was hitting its stride and crafty Schafer cooks up a scheme.
- Tim Schafer puts a very early, borderline-developmental build of DF9 up on steam for $25 with a link to a web page promising tons and tons of features - all with a very nebulous timetable attached.
- A few months later (and a few inconsequential updates later) Tim Schafer finally cons enough money from hard-working people to pay back his investors (and get himself into rehab). Unfortunately, Double Fine is now broke.
- Tim Schafer announces the latest development build as the final release, takes down the webpage with the planned content, and releases the source code in a futile attempt to placate his former fans.
- Tim Schafer goes off to further bankrupt Double Fine.

tl;dr, DO NOT BUY. This game is fundamentally broken and lacking in content.


I realize game development can be expensive, but I think it's pretty obvious from this and the Broken Age debacles that Tim Schafer isn't particularly good with money. Maybe Double Fine's next project should be an Excel spreadsheet so he can keep track of expenses.

Also, I really don't see how releasing the source code, or modding API, or whatever will possibly save this turd. Modders are not going to want to spend time making a bad game adequate. I think a complete rewrite of the AI should be the first thing to be done, but by the time they familiarize themselves with the code and rework the game, it'll be months from now. Months of work, just to maybe make the game playable and - best case senario - make Tim Schafer a few more bucks from sales.

Got in on day 0 with this game. Expected big things. Got kicked in the proverbial nuts when the developers chose to stop developing before the game was considered done.

Do not buy. I will never support Double Fine ever again.

Unfinished Game
DoubleFine tried to cash grab with Early access , they thought people would buy and totally fund their game only from early access sales just like Prison architect did . they canceled this game claiming the early access did not fund the game.

the game itself is a base building survival game. you build rooms try to keep everyone alive and happy. and defend against pirates and invaders. Thats it . no plots no missions nothing

the game as it is Totally not worth the Price Tag.

Had so much promise, to find the developers have dropped the game & handed it over to "modders".

The game then gets awards for "empowering modders" which is BS. This game is dead, it should NOT be available for sale as its developement is dead.

So bad that Valve changed the rules for Early Access to ensure that all projects actually have a finished game at the end, rather than being used as another funding source to be cut off whenever they feel like it isn't making a profit.

Doublefine have managed to lose me as a customer, and quite frankly should consider it a vast PR blunder.

A side-project by the venerable Double Fine, Spacebase DF-9 had ambitions of being “Dwarf Fortress but in SPACE!”. It’s in space, that part they finished pretty early on. The entire everything else part, the parts that involve managing a large, complex and interrelated system of many smaller systems all working together and against each other, that part they didn’t quite finish. Much of what was promised for Spacebase DF-9 was dropped just before release (the game had been in Early Access for about a year now). The game was given a half-decent tutorial, opened up so users could modify and “finish” the game themselves, and a few meta-goals were added to give the experience a bit of structure.

So what you’re left with is something that so painfully looks like the start of something great but then never actually goes there. You can build your base, take on space immigrants, juggle their needs and desires, fend off raiders and explore derelicts that may appear. But it all feels pointless, unless you chase the arbitrary goals the team shoved in at the last minute, like “have a base with X amount of denizens”. It’s a pity the game didn’t get more support in Early Access, as a lack of interest from consumers is why Double Fine claims to have dropped the project.

I never really take the time as I should to rate games, I either like them or I don't. Spacebase DF-9 was suppose to be a great game, many things were promised and not even a third was delivered. The game is unfinished after having the support from gamers to get it started, I really feel like they should give us our money back. Don't waste your time with this game or your money. To summarize the game, you'll start building, your citizens will get angry, they will kill each other, the end.
