UPDATE: First off, I'd like to thank DjArcas for the tips and help, greatly appreciated.
Pros: Awesome soundtrack, very creative designs, futuristic feel to it, Help menu (H) very useful.
Cons: Spawn equipment isn't always guarented(This equipment is vital to do anything), always snowy biome on spawn.
(More Details Below)
The first issue I had was when I was creating a world. I went to name it, and my mouse dissapeared, and I only got it back by using ALT + TAB to switch out then back in.
Upon entering the world, I enjoyed a very creative loading retracting box, which is much more interesting than common world loading screens. Yet, I failed to watch the ship that I arrived in crash. In fact, it didn't crash at all. In an attempt to find it, I climbed the highest nearest mountain, but could not find the crater it crashed down in. (I did look for a purple beam in the sky, but only saw a very cool looking alien background.)
No matter what, you will always spawn in a snow biome. I get that its to add a sense of survivng the cold (Hypothermia is a thing) but the constantly howling wind was somewhat annoying. I attempted to turn the sound effects off in the in-game settings menu, but found it very lacking(Which means that there were zip settings, and could not do so). The music is AWESOME though. I would love it in the SteamMusic Player.
The Help menu was very helpful (H button in-game) and told me alot that I didn't know before. Pause menu is ok, settings are still being worked on I guess, missing some stuff.
The robots everywhere gave it a very futuristic feel, which I did like, and the robot compainion is fairly a cool. . . informer? He dosent do much, helps keep you alive with solar power if you have the right upgrades, tells some basic info about what block you are carrying, etc. I haven't upgraded him a whole lot so far.
The only way to exit a world is to exit the game, then restart it. Found this out after I pressed "Quit" However, this is partly my error because there is a short note under saying "Exit to Desktop"
All in all, I would give this game a 6.5/10. I understand that designing a game isn't easy, and this game is still early access. However, I would keep my previous recommendation of waiting to see where this game ends up before buying it.
Sugesstions: Have the player crash in a escape pod, guarunteing (Sorry that I can't spell) the research equipmentby having it in the escape pod with the player. Option to change biome, mabye add different challenges to these biomes? (Deset=Hydration,etc.) These are the only sugesstions that I have so far, the game is solid besides this. I realize that this game is early access, so I'm going to definetly give it some slack. The pause menu and stuff, I understand.
ANYWAY, this is just my opinion of the game, its not bad in the state that it is in, only major issues are A. Biome and B. Spawn equipment.
It's been a while since I've played, but from that expirence, I had alot of trouble. There was no tutorial, nor any tutorial videos that I could find. I had some bugs when starting a new survival, such as being stuck in the zoomed view when the player is watching the ship crash. I also had trouble finding the crashed ship. However, these are understandable as it is an early acess game.
My advice: Keep an eye on this game, but don't buy it just yet.
NOTE: This review is based on an older version, I plan on re-playing this game again as soon as possible to update this review.
