I bought this game while on early access and i was surprised at the frequency of updates i recieved from it! it updated at a faster rate than starbound (then again what game DOESNT update more than starbound?) and within days after buying it, i already started to see results. for a quick TLDR on the game....:
You control a team of inmates, guards, and crewmen that were held within the prison ship entering the orbit of a planet lost to the ages. Unfortunately for everyone on board, the orbital defense systems from the ancient race of aliens came to life and blew the prison ship to bits. one escape pod was shot during the chaos. This is where you come in.
Every dungeon is randomized and you will get a diffferent play through every time which keeps the game fresh and appealing. Probably the coolest thing about the game is that every character in the game (idk about the special ones from the packs) has interactions with other characters. You will know when you find this interaction when the two begin having conversations on the elevator ride to the next floor complete with yellow text and special dialogue. Survive three floors and you get to hear the whole story between the two PLUS they usually buff each other.
Only downside to the game is the multiplayer. Be sure to grab some friends for this one or get alot of single player experience under your belt since i've noticed alot of skilled players handing out rolls and such. make sure you have a basic idea of the game or play with a group of friends for the best possible experience. ALSO and i CANNOT stress this enough: expect your multiplayer game to possibly cut out on you if you get a slight connection disruption. the Servers for the game are still in early stages so it's to be expect. Just be patient with it as the team behind the game fixes problems and glitches very fast.
-Very immersive sountrack
-A new level of depth and strategy from the tower defense combined with the rpg items
-Enjoyable characters with their own unique stories and personalities. my favorite story between two characters is title "Downfall"! up to you to find who has that story -.o
-action packed wave defenses that will leave you holding your breath in the later floors
-excellent difficulty scaling. if you thought floor one was bad.....heh just make it to the last one and prepare to cry!
-very fluid animations for a 2d pixal art game
-the game is in a league of its own thus creating a high learning curve. Stick with the game and it will come to you with practice
-multiplayer service disruptions (this is planned by G2G to be fixed with time)
The fox fur's over all score of the game?
a very well earned 9/10
when they fix those service disruptions, this game will be on my top played list. only reason i havent put more time into this game is that having a job kills alot of that time!
