Steam Bandits: Outpost shows promise in its town-building elements and customization opportunities, but is otherwise a waste of time in its current form; wait on it unless you want to participate in the alpha. Yes, it is very much in alpha.
-Movement speed that would make you think the grass is not grass at all, but sticky green Jello.
-Combat is an abomination: Do you like pressing a button, watching agonizingly slow animations for both you and the enemy, then repeating it many times over—half of them being misses?
-Imbalanced: Do you like doing the above again, after you die, over and over? Movement speed makes the trip back to where you died an obnoxious one. After a main quest that killed me repeatedly in the early game, I finally closed it out for good in frustration.
-The UI, while not terrible, is unintuitive and can be useless at times. It's also giant and in your face, because lolmobilephones.
-Single-player but always online, because of "social elements". You have to create an account on their website and sign into the game.
-Facebook game, plain and simple. Think Farmville, without the farm and without the fun (I don't know if it was actually fun). Townville? Islandville? Dullsville.
-Paced too slowly and not rewarding in general. Exploration must be fixed to redeem the game.
It has potential but seems far from realizing it. The art is nice, the world definitely has character, and the game engine itself runs smoothly. Piloting airships around and exploring floating islands is fun in theory; who doesn't like airships? You can even send pilots out on missions to explore them for you. Customization of the placement, color and accents of structures is promising. Cute pets.
Will revise if necessary. Alpha.
