Devs made a barely functional game, cashed out, and blamed the community for not creating content mods for their unfinished game.

Could have been a great game - but they have abandoned it. Game as is is not worth anything close to this price. Do not purchase.

It's abandonware. Honestly, Steam needs to start requiring source code escrow for early access games. 4.9 hours is a lie, I have maybe 100 hours in offline mode.

It has more bugs than a $2 hookers snatch.

The game is unplayable due to horrible AI and a huge number of bugs. I used to love Double Fine, but the way they handled this game has put them on my shitlist.

Unfortunately this game was rushed out the door and doesn't have the polish or depth that was planned. I wouldn't recommend this game as while it is listed as released, feels incomplete.

Could have been good, but was abandoned during the alpha. Not worth the cost.

I really, really did like this game. Before I found out that it was abandoned. I got this because of watching a youtuber, because it looked good at the time. This really could have been a good game had it been continued.

Don't buy. It's a incomplete game that the developers deliberately abandoned.

I picked this game up for 1 euro and you shouldn't ever pay more than that. It's a cute game, but deeply flawed. Using the unofficial patch helps. but I think the flaws in the game go to deep. The developer apparently abondoned the game, which may have been foolish as the die hard fans show there really was a good idea here.

The AI is horrible for one thing. Trying to keep a base running seems to be impossible. It's not just a matter of planning, you injured citizens will starve and die while your doctor is lifiting waits and complaining about being bored.

You like this genre, pick this up if its on the cheap. It will entertain for a few hours, and for 1 euro that's worth it.

I've tried long and hard to have fun with this game, but I can't. If you can, fine, but be prepared for a butt-clenching, mind-numbing, idiot space people simulator.

I really enjoyed this game during the alpha, but the devs kill this thanks to DFP more like "Double Lie Productions".
The game is unfinished and mostly broken(without modding).
This game had so much potential as the "Dwarf Fotress in Space" but fail thanks to DFP and their inability to manage production funds.

this game was better in alpha when doublefine cared about it, i was so exited about this game and got in early on, to support the game, but it was tossed in the trash.
